Marketers of Memory Supplement Settle FTC Charges of Deceptive Claims
BrainStrong contains the omega-3 fatty acid DHA (from algal oil), green tea extract and L-theanine. It was sold online and in major retail stores including CVS Pharmacy, Walmart, Walgreens and Rite Aid.
(ConsumerLab.com recently tested a related product, BrainStrong Prenatal, in the Fish Oil and Omega-3 Fatty Acid Supplements Review.)
The proposed settlement prohibits the companies from making claims that BrainStrong Adult or any related products can improve memory or prevent cognitive decline unless the claims are supported by clinical testing.
See ConsumerLab.com's Reviews of Fish Oil and Omega-3 Fatty Acid Supplements (Including Krill, Algae, Calamari, Green-lipped Mussel Oil) and Green Tea Supplements for tests of related products.
