(Date Posted: 4/21/2020)

On March 27, 2020, the FDA issued a warning letter to Doctor's Signature Sales and Marketing International Corp. dba Life Force International following an inspection of the company's facility and review of the company's website, which found statements made about some of the company's products, including Colloidal Silver and VitalSTART to be drug claims.

For example, Colloidal Silver was promoted with statements such as "Colloidal silver is known as a natural antibiotic, antifungal, and antiviral substance" and "Colloidal silver is also said to be capable of treating fungal infections."

See ConsumerLab.com's answer to the question Is ingesting colloidal silver helpful for any condition and is it safe to use?

VitalSTART, a product containing beetroot juice and other ingredients promoted to boost nitric oxide levels, was promoted with statements such as "Avoid heart problems and reduce the risk of a stroke" and "Maintains Blood Pressure."

In addition, several of the products were found to be misbranded because the labels did not provide adequate information on safe use, as required by federal regulations.
