The FTC is Cracking Down on Which of These Homeopathic Remedies?

  1. Echinacea
  2. Colloidal Silver
  3. Ginko Biloba
  4. Turmeric Pills

Answer: All of the above

The FTC announced it would place tighter restrictions on over-the-counter homeopathic remedies.

In order to continue selling to consumers, manufacturers would have to prove the safety and efficacy of the remedy.

According to the FTC: “An [over-the-counter] homeopathic drug claim that is not substantiated by competent and reliable scientific evidence might not be deceptive if the advertisement or label where it appears effectively communicates that: 1) there is no scientific evidence that the product works; and 2) the product’s claims are based only on theories of homeopathy from the 1700s that are not accepted by most modern medical experts.”
