Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center examined CELLECT™, posted July 25, 2008.
Their report can be seen here. (When you go on the site the first time, a terms and conditions page will come up and you will need to accept the terms. It will then take you to the page.)
The following are some of our impressions of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering write-up
Warnings - This product has not been approved by the FDA.
This is a factual statement because CELLECT™ is a dietary supplement and dietary supplements are not subject to FDA approval.
Dietary Supplement - ingredients must be stated but no claims can be made of its abilities. Those who describe it will describe it as purported use because it has not been scientifically proven through the 8 year double blind study.
- ingredients went through an 8 year double blind study, which means neither the doctor nor the patient will know whether the patient is receiving the real material or a placebo, a placebo is a non-active ingredient providing no benefit.
After the 8 year study is completed, the product would be approved by the FDA to be able to make claims based on the result of that study.
Pregnant or lactating women should consult their physician before using this product.
Sloan-Kettering simply repeated what is on the CELLECT™ label.
- Upset Stomach
- Loose Stools
In the past we found that about 5 - 10% of the people said that they had an upset stomach or loose stools when taking the CELLECT™. Since we refined how it was mixed, the mixing process is a proprietary formula, we no longer have the problem. A few people do have those symptoms, however, as they look at what they are eating, they usually find that it was their diet causing the problem and not the CELLECT™. After they correct their diet, those symptoms usually diminish.
