Officials are warning patients about supplements claiming to prevent or treat concussions.

The Food and Drug Administration has sent warning letters to companies making supplements promising decreased recovery time from a concussion. Many also claim their products can minimize long-term effects.

Experts say no dietary supplements have been proven to benefit concussion patients and these advertised supplements could contain harmful ingredients.
