FDA slams 58 Alzheimer’s supplements as potentially dangerous!

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has posted 12 warning letters and five online advisory letters issued to foreign and domestic companies that are illegally selling more than 58 products. Many of these are sold as dietary supplements, which are unapproved new drugs and/or unbranded drugs that claim to prevent, treat, or cure Alzheimer’s disease.

Science and evidence are the cornerstone of the FDA’s review process and are imperative to demonstrating medical benefit, especially when a product is marketed to treat serious and complex diseases like Alzheimer’s.

Alzheimer’s is a challenging disease that, unfortunately, has no cure. Any products making unproven drug claims could mislead consumers to believe that such therapies exist and keep them from accessing therapies that are known to help support the symptoms of the disease, or worse as some fraudulent treatments can cause serious or even fatal injuries.

Simply put, health fraud scams prey on vulnerable populations, waste money and often delay proper medical care – and we will continue to take action to protect patients and caregivers from misleading, unproven products.

– Scott Gottlieb, M.D. – FDA Commissioner
