FDA: Supplements do not lessen recovery time from concussions

Created: 01/03/2014 8:08 AM WHEC.com

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.
