USA TODAY published an investigation of popular arthritis supplement Reumofan this week — an investigation that found, basically, you want to stay away from Reumofan.

[C]onsumers who buy Reumofan products are risking dangerous side effects and trusting their lives to a company that uses fake addresses, lies about the ingredients in its products and may not even exist, a USA TODAY investigation has found.

Ruemofan advertises itself as an all-natural supplement. It is not. FDA tests on one batch of Ruemofan and Ruemofan Plus from earlier this year found that the arthritis medication contained three prescription drug ingredients: a corticosteroid, an anti-inflammatory, and a muscle relaxant.

In other words, so many people are swearing by Reumofan as an arthritis cure-all because it contained undeclared prescription drugs that worked.

But the undeclared drug ingredients also led to “liver injury, strokes and severe episodes of bleeding,” and the FDA warned of strokes and death.

Consumers should avoid Reumofan and consult their healthcare provider for arthritis pain. For more on Reumofan, read USA TODAY’s investigation. And for more on supplements, read our previous article.
