Memory supplements aren't always what they claim
Federal investigators had three memory supplements tested to see whether they contained what their labels claimed — and two of the three didn’t, according to a new report. One product, branded as Gingko biloba, didn't actually contain any Gingko biloba. Another listed Gingko biloba as one of its ingredients — and again, didn't contain any. Both contained substitutes that the lab couldn't identify, so it's not clear whether the ingredient is safe. The third was marketed as a fish oil supplement and actually contained all of the ingredients listed on the label. The officials said they're sending the results to the FDA to review.
