VitaMist Spray Vitamins

Vitamins you can spray into your mouth instead of swallowing? What could possibly be fishy about that?

Lots, apparently. The FDA sent a warning letter in December to Mayor Laboratories, the makers of VitaMist Spray, warning the company that they were selling an unapproved drug. And even if Mayor Laboratories were selling its VitaMist Sprays as a supplement, the spray would still be misbranded, as some products fail to include Supplement Fact panels and others had unlisted ingredients.

According to the FDA’s letter, VitaMist claims in its advertising to help:

  • Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis
  • Celiac disease
  • Colds
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Sinuses
  • Allergies
  • Quit smoking
  • Age-related eyesight decline
  • Swine flu (no joke, it’s really in there)
  • Autism
  • Appetite control

That’s a lot of claims for a vitamin supplement. And the jury is out on vitamin supplements anyway. But at least you swallow those ones. Vitamins you spray in your mouth? That aren’t properly labeled and make claims like this? Think carefully about this one.

Be careful with supplements making over-the-top or treatment claims. For more on supplements, click here.
