Dear Patients,

We recently had a patient return to the clinic due to anxiety and insomnia.  She was using DHEA 25 mg daily.  She had been using DHEA 25 mg daily for several years and had normal labs while on this supplement (hormone).  She had purchased a new product at Super Supplements (MRM brand, a purple label).  Her labs indicated excessive levels of the hormone, way beyond expected at a 25 mg dose.  She stopped the hormone and over 4 days her lab levels have normalized and her symptoms are improving.
I am in the process of reporting the supplement and finding out if we can have it tested.

As there is no testing of the product yet, I have nothing further to report, however I wanted to put out an alert so that any of our patients using this brand will immediately STOP.

If we are able to find out anything more we will continue to post updates.

Quality control is a huge issue in the supplement industry as per our previous post by Thorne supplements.

This is the recent news article that has been discussing problems in the supplement industry.

Sincerely,
Trina Seligman, N.D.
