Maker of Concussion Recovery Supplement Warned For Making Drug Claims

On August 28, 2012, the FDA issued a warning letter to Trinity Sports Group, Inc. after a review of the company's websites found statements about Neuro Impact Concussion Response Formula constituted drug claims not permitted on supplements. 

Neuro Impact Concussion Response Formula was promoted as a treatment for concussion through celebrity and health professional endorsements, and statements such as "developed to help those who suffer a concussion recover more rapidly," and "to minimize long-term effects and decrease recovery time." Promotional materials also contained statements that the formula's ingredients were anti-inflammatory and able to decrease thrombosis and brain cell damage. 

The formula contained a "patent-pending proprietary blend" of ingredients including a Vitamin B complex, Vitamin C, folic acid, biotin, choline, feverfew, L-glutamine, L-tyrosine, acetyl-L-carnitine, GABA, DMG (dimethylglycine, a derivative of the amino acid glycine), Ginkgo biloba, PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid), DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol), alpha-lipoic acid, bromelain, bilberry extract, guarana, L-theanine, huperzine A and turmeric.
