Dietary supplements and concussions: What’s the story?

published: 01-07-2014 Journal entry icon

Recently, several dietary supplement manufacturers have promoted products for helping with recovery from concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is monitoring this issue and is contacting specific companies that are making claims that their products can prevent, treat, or cure concussions.

FDA is warning consumers to avoid using products that claim to treat a concussion or TBI. For more information about the claims and FDA’s response, see this Consumer Update.
