FDA Warns Puerto Rico Supplement Seller

On June 30, 2014, the FDA issued a warning letter to Mr. Ramon Rosa, following a review of his website, www.aceitedeguanabana.com, which found statements made about supplements containing graviola oil, including Ramon Rosa 7 Aceite de Guanabana, Ramon Rosa 7 Diabetes Terminator, and Sanson 1, 2, 3 sublingual pills to be drug claims.

Graviola (Annona muricata), also known as soursop, is the fruit of a tree native to South America and Puerto Rico.

Ramon Rosa 7 Aceite de Guanabana contains graviola and was promoted with statements such as "Soursop Pure Oil combat Cancer ...diabetes ... high blood pressure... 10,000 times more potent than chemotherapy."

Ramon Rosa 7 Diabetes Terminator contains graviola and was promoted to treat diabetes, with statements such as "Combat your Diabetes..."

SANSON 1,2,3 contains graviola and was promoted with statements such as "used to recover long and hard lasting erections".

The FDA warned other sellers of graviola supplements in May 2014 for promoting the ingredient to treat cancer.
