Seller of Curcumin, Garcinia, Glucosamine and More Warned for Manufacturing Violations

On September 7, 2018, the FDA issued a warning letter to Best Nutrition Products, Inc., following a facility inspection which the company's products, including  Garcinia Slim Fit & Weight Loss 75% HCA, Gymnema Sylvetre, Boswelliac with Curcumin, Collagen, DHEA, Garlic Odorless, Glucosamine Sulfate, Gotu Kola, GTF Chronium and Shilajit Fulvic Acid, to be adulterated because they were prepared, packed, or held under conditions that violate Current Good Manufacturing Practices for dietary supplements.

In addition, statements made about some of these products on the company's website were found to be drug claims. For example, Boswellia was promoted with statements such as "Boswellia may reduce pain and boost physical functioning in people with arthritis, asthma and inflammatory bowel diseases." GTF Chromium was promoted with statements such as "Glucose Tolerance Factor Chromium is used for improving blood sugar control in people with prediabetes, type 1 and 2 diabetes." 

For more information about these ingredients, see ConsumerLab.com's Reviews of Garcinia Supplements, Joint Health Supplements, Turmeric and Curcumin Supplements, Garlic Supplements and Chromium Supplements.
