Seller of "Diabetes Supplement" & More Warned for Drug Claims

On August 25, 2020, the FDA issued a warning letter to Nutritional Supplements Corporation Inc following a review of the company's website, which found statements made about some of the company's products, including Vitadone, Diabrex, and Viadevita to be drug claims.

For example, Vitadone was promoted with statements such as "With its aggressive formulation of vital nutrients and vitamins, Vitadone effectively addresses such real world issues as bowel irregularity related to the use of Methadone."  

Diabrex was promoted with statements such as "Diabrex is a chelated nutritional supplement to assist everyone, including those with diabetes."

(See ConsumerLab's answer to the question: Which supplements can help lower or control my blood sugar?)

Viadevita was promoted with statements such as "For individuals with HIV/AIDS, good nutrition is essential to support overall health and strengthen the immune system. Viadevita is specially formulated to provide this vital nutritional support." 

In addition, these products were found to be misbranded because they do not contain adequate directions for safe use, as required by federal regulations.
