Maker of Liver Detox and Insulin Supplements Warned For Drug Claims
These violations include failure to establish and follow written procedures for the responsibilities of the quality control operations, failure to establish written procedures for the review and investigation of product complaints, and failure to establish and follow written procedures for handling returned dietary supplements.
A review of Glucorell’s websites also found statements made about Insulow and Tyler Liver Detoxification Factors to be drug claims.
Insulow contains lipoic acid and biotin. It was promoted for the treatment of diabetes, with statements such as “Insulow, recommended in Diabetes Solutions by Dr. R. Bernstein, is pure R+ Lipoic acid complexed with essential Biotin.”
