Dangerous Nutritional Supplements
California Product Liability Attorneys
Our team of lawyers at Frantz Law Group are well-aware of the dangers associated with nutritional supplements. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not regulate or monitor dietary supplements with nearly as much scrutiny as they do with pharmaceutical drugs. As a result, countless Americans are negatively affected by the side effects of these poorly regulated products.
Consumers usually purchase these products for weight loss, body building, sexual performance, athleticism, and any number of other physical goals. These supposed “100% natural” supplements may contain pharmaceutical ingredients that are dosed too high, have dangerous side effects, or both. Liver damage is one of the most common negative side effects of taking defective supplements, especially with body building and weight loss pills.
If you have been harmed by defective supplements, contact our lawyers at Frantz Law Group.

Liver Damage & You
As stated previously, liver damage is one of the most common negative side effects of taking defective nutritional supplements. Our team of California personal injury attorneys will coordinate with medical professionals to fully understand the extent of the supplement’s impact on your health. As most dietary supplements are not safety-tested before being sold in America, there are currently many supplements on the market that may cause liver damage, heart problems, kidney complications, death, and more.
Several symptoms of liver damage include:
- Itchy skin
- Chronic fatigue
- Dark urine color
- Oddly-colored stool
- Nausea and appetite loss
- Pain in the abdominal area
