Walmart is allegedly under investigation due to recent questions about their nutritional supplements.
These inquiries relate specifically to magnesium products.
Top Class Actions attorneys believe Walmart may be mislabeling magnesium supplements under the retail chain’s Equate brand, according to Best Life.
Many health professionals say that magnesium is necessary for the healthy functioning of your body, according to the Mayo Clinic.
We usually get magnesium from milk, yogurt, leafy green vegetables, and other foods.
It is said to support energy production, along with important muscle and nerve functions.
However, some people don’t get enough magnesium, and need a supplement to get more in their bodies, according to the National Institutes of Health.
The problem is that some have created their own magnesium supplements and made claims that they can help with insomnia, fatigue, or even bowel movements.
The researchers said there wasn’t enough evidence to support this, however, which is why Wal-Mart was questioned, according to Harvard Health Publishing.
Walmart’s Magnesium Equiate has a label that claims it’s meant to be used to relieve constipation—essentially becoming a laxative.
The bottle says the supplement offers “comfortable relief from occasional constipation.”
It also has a disclaimer on the label stating that the product has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), along with that it “is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.”
Allegedly, this is a major misnomer, even with a disclaimer, for all the claims made by the attorneys at Top Class Actions.
There has not been enough evidence to suggest that magnesium can act as a laxative.
Qunol Extra Strength Magnesium, which is also sold at Walmart, CVS, on their website, and at other major retailers, was also questioned by Top Class Actions.
The supplement claims to be “specially formulated to provide a nutritional boost to the health of your nerves, bones, and muscles.”
However, it also includes a disclaimer stating that it has not been evaluated or approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration [FDA]reads the poster.
This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
The disclaimer can also be seen on Walmart’s online product page for Qunol Extra Strength Magnesium.
The problem for the lawyers is that the product claims to be “highly absorbable” magnesium and has “extra strength”.
Again, this has not been confirmed by the FDA or other experts.
The US Sun has reached out to Walmart and Top Class Actions for comment.
