Two Companies Banned From Selling Supplements to Treat Heart Disease, Neuropathy
On June 30, 2022, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) finalized an administrative complaint order against two Texas-based companies, Health Research Laboratories, LLC and Whole Body Supplements, LLC, for making unverified claims that their products can prevent or treat disease. The companies and their owner, Kramer Duhon, are banned from advertising or selling supplements, and from making claims that their products can treat, cure, or reduce the risk of disease.
This administrative consent order follows an administrative complaint filed against the companies by the FTC in 2020. The company promoted its The Ultimate Heart Formula, BG18, and Black Garlic Botanicals supplements with claims that they could prevent or treat heart disease. Its Neupathic supplement was promoted for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy with statements such as “miraculous natural solution.”
In 2017, Duhon settled FTC charges that his company promoted its BioTherapex product with fictitious medical doctors and clinical studies. His company also falsely stated its NeuroPlus products could protect against Alzheimer’s and reverse memory loss.
