CVS sued over memory supplement claim

4 Mar

From the Center for Science in the Public Interest:

“CVS boasts that its Algal-900 DHA dietary supplement is “clinically shown” to improve memory, but relies solely on an industry-conducted study that the Federal Trade Commission has concluded does not support that claim, according to a lawsuit filed in federal court today. The nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest, which filed the class action complaint with two law firms, says that high-quality clinical studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA, work no better than a placebo at improving cognitive function.”
