The question is, does Prevagen really work? The makers of this supplement have been facing class action lawsuits alleging that it mislabeled and misrepresented its benefits. The company has since settled the case and agreed to refund thirty percent of customers. Refunds, however, will not exceed $70. Additionally, the company has been ordered to state that Prevagen is clinically tested. That is not a very convincing argument.
As evidence of its breakthrough in the memory area, the makers of Prevagen have touted three studies with positive results. Although these results were so meager, the company behind the products hasn’t stopped pushing their product. Moreover, FDA audits have revealed that Quincy Bioscience failed to report any serious user damage in the studies, and the results were so mediocre that the FTC has taken legal action. The study was conducted in mice, but it failed to show any improvement in the brain function of human participants. Still, the company has managed to keep the drug on the market despite the negative publicity surrounding it.
The FDA also questioned the legitimacy of the supplement’s claims. Its manufacturer, Quincy Bioscience, has made a number of false and unsubstantiated claims about its benefits. This led to a class-action lawsuit against the company, which later settled with the FDA. However, the company does not disregard the FDA’s warnings about the dangers of the supplement, and it is therefore not a scam.
