Though dietary supplements are mostly exempt from FDA scrutiny due to the Clinton administration giving them a free pass if they put a small disclaimer on the packaging, companies still can't do things like claim to treat cancer, or anything that legitimate medicine does. They can only use marketing to suggest they might make you feel better and other claims that allow naturopaths and homeopaths to make money.
What do scientists call alternative medicine that passes double blind clinical trials? Medicine. This does nothing but cause you to lose money.
While most supplements are just placebos, some can cause harm by interfering with real medicine, or in the hands of shady companies by being adulterated with real medicine in untested quantities and with unknown regard for safety.
LeRoche Benicoeur/ConceiveEasy; EU Natural Inc.; Fertility Nutraceuticals LLC; SAL NATURE LLC/FertilHerb; and NS Products, Inc. have been given 15 working days to comply with data showing how they are making their claims despite never submitting any data to FDA or registering for approval as fertility treatments.
If they do not, the FDA will use its responsibility to prevent consumers from being duped or even harmed and take legal action.
