Absonutrix Ordered To Remove Bogus Cancer Claims, More

Absonutrix and its owner,¬†Himanshu Nautiyal, have been formally warned by the US Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, for dozens of unallowed medical claims made about several of the company’s products. Some of the medical conditions the products promised to address included glaucoma, hypertension and even cancer.

In all, nearly 20 products were cited–and the FDA warns that its letter was not intended to present a complete list of all potential violations. Those products include:

  • Forskolin Pure X-treme Capsules
  • Fucoidan Max Strength
  • Parasite Detox X-Treme
  • Lavender Oil X-Treme
  • Oil of Oregano X-Treme Purifier
  • Cissus X-Treme 1600 mg
  • Deep Comfort X-Treme
  • Deer Antler Maximum Strength
  • African Mango Max Strength
  • Picamilon X-treme
  • Alpha GPC
  • Phytoceramides
  • Garcinia Cambogia
  • African Mango Pure
  • Acai Pure
  • Acai Burn X-Treme
  • Fucoxanthin Patch
  • Forskolin Patch

Some of the medical conditions these supplements and products promised to address are quite serious. Absonutrix’s Forskolin and Fucoidan capsules, for example, both claim to have anti-cancer properties; the Forskolin product also claims to benefit sufferers of hypertension, glaucoma and urinary tract infection. (It also claims to help prevent sunburn.)

Do you fear that you might have parasites? Absonutrix’s anti-parasitic remedy was touted for intestinal “worms”, viruses, bacteria, fungal infections and dental plaque.

Absonutrix also offers a small collection of volatile oils. Its lavender oil is claimed to reduce stress and the side effects of stress, like high blood pressure, pain and sleep disorders. The company’s oil of oregano is hyped as a “natural analgesic” and as a natural anti-inflammatory. And, according to an online catalog, which, as of August 04, 2017, is still available here, the oregano oil can even be used to fight skin infections, colds and digestive problems.

Of course, the FDA answers such claims by pointing out that none of those products has ever been officially recognized as effective for the medical conditions to which Absonutrix links them. And they further violate the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act by being promoted for medical conditions the average person simply cannot self-diagnose or self-treat with over-the-counter supplements, patches or volatile oils.

Absonutrix was given the normal 15 working days to remove the claims and to cease its use of the FDA logo on its marketing materials. The FDA warning letter to Absonutrix was dated July 25, 2017; as of my last check on August 04, 2017, I found most of the claims I looked up still there in PDF catalogs, freely available here and here, as well as at the link above.

FDA demands Absonutrix pull its logo.

Absonutrix was ordered to stop its use of the FDA logo, an example of which you can see in this archived screenshot. It has done so.
