Agency questions claims for Glucosil
The Food and Drug Administration has warned Lee Zhong, M.D., Ph.D., that his company, Neuliven Health, 10171 Pacific Mesa Blvd., could be selling a diabetes treatment that violates federal law. From its website, the company sells the Glucocil product for diabetes sufferers. Among the ingredients in Glucocil are proprietary mulberry leaf extract, alpha lipoic acid, banaba leaf extract, cinnamon bark powder, and fish oil. The webpage asserts that, "The natural ingredients in Glucocil...can lower our fasting blood sugar in as little as two weeks." Zhong is quoted saying that Glucocil delivers "peace of mind without a prescription."
