RegeneSlim Supplement FDA Warning
On August 28, 2012, the FDA sent a warning letter to Matthew A. Nicosa, President and CEO of Regeneca Inc. regarding the company’s RegeneSlim weight loss supplement. According to the FDA:
“The product labeling declares 1,3-dimethylpentylamine HCL as a dietary ingredient…To the best of FDA’s knowledge, there is no information demonstrating that dimethylamylamine was lawfully marketed as a dietary ingredient in the United States before October 15, 1994, nor is there information demonstrating that this ingredient has been present in the food supply as an article used for food in a form in which the food has not been chemically altered. In the absence of such information, dimethylamylamine is subject to the notification requirement in 21 U.S.C. 350b(a)(2) and 21 CFR 190.6. Because the required notification has not been submitted, your product is adulterated under 21 U.S.C. 342(f)(1)(B) and 350b(a).”
As a result of these problems, FDA required Regeneca to immediately halt sales of the RegeneSlim supplement, and warned that failure to do so could result in further enforcement action by the agency.
DMAA Health Issues
There is a documented history of serious health problems linked to DMAA. In 2009, the World AntiDoping Agency placed the ingredient on its list of banned substances. Canada limits the use of DMAA by classifying it as a prescription medication and in August 2012, U.K. health authorities banned all DMAA-containing dietary supplements. In December 2011, the U.S. Army launched an investigation into the deaths of 2 soldiers who had taken DMAA.
