Smart Drugs? Not Quite…
In the Daniel Keyes’ 1958 short story, “Flowers For Algernon”, a man named Charlie Gordon undergoes a series of surgeries intended to improve his intelligence. Within the last several years, many nutritional supplements have entered the market, claiming to offer brainpower-boosting benefits in just a small pill. These pills are called Nootropics
Nootropics are drugs, supplements, and other substances that may improve cognitive function, particularly executive functions, memory, creativity, or motivation, in healthy individuals. Many products have been marketed in the past few years as having nootropic effects, capitalizing on a customer base that is increasingly driven to perform at their peak at work or school. But unfortuantely, unscrupulous supplement makers have flooded the industry with supplements containing ingredients with no dietary value, backed by poor or nonexistent science, and deceptively marketed.
The following supplements have been discovered by Kazerouni Law Group experts as being mislabeled, containing ingredients not approved by the FDA for human use, or containing claims that the science simply doesn’t back up. Much of the results users claim to feel can be attributed to the placebo effect, yet these mislabeled drugs are expensive and possibly detrimental to health.
If you have purchased one of these products, Kazerouni Law Group would like to meet you with, at no cost to you, to discuss potential litigation against the manufacturers who lied to you. If we succeed in court, a judge could award you up to $5,000. You will not be responsible for any costs unless we win, and would be helping to get these potentially dangerous supplements off the street.
