Dietary supplement trade associations warn consumers of dangerous substance illegally posing as a dietary supplement
WASHINGTON (Nov. 05, 2018) — The dietary supplement industry today sounded the alarm about the dangers of “phenibut,” a substance being illegally marketed in products fraudulently labeled as dietary supplements. Developed and used as a drug in the former Soviet Union for its supposed brain-enhancing properties, phenibut is not approved as a drug in the United States, nor does it meet the regulatory requirements to be sold in, or as, a dietary supplement. The ingredient should be considered dangerous, and has been associated with potentially serious side effects and great risk for addiction. The responsible dietary supplement industry learned that phenibut has been found in adulterated products fraudulently labeled as dietary supplements and is warning consumers to avoid purchasing any products with this ingredient.
