Steer Clear of Dietary Supplements for Concussions: FDA
Date:8/26/2014

tary supplements that claim to benefit people with concussion and other head injuries hype the benefits of ingredients such as the spice turmeric and high levels of omega-3 fatty acids from fish oils, the FDA said.

Two companies making false claims about their products changed their websites and labeling after the FDA sent them warning letters in 2012. The FDA issued a warning letter in 2013 to a third company that was doing the same.

"As we continue to work on this problem, we can't guarantee you won't see a claim about [traumatic brain injuries]," Coody said. "But we can promise you this: There is no dietary supplement that has been shown to prevent or treat them. If someone tells you otherwise, walk away."

More information

The U.S. National Library of Medicine has more about concussion.
