Questions raised about new pre-workout supplement

In a 1,700-word article, USA Today reports that Driven Sports is about to launch “a replacement product for Craze.” Called Frenzy, the new pre-workout supplement product, according to people who have tried it out, appears to be “an even more powerful stimulant than its predecessor,” which was found to contain a substance similar to methamphetamine.

Some experts are now concerned about the Food and Drug Administration’s not taking any action on the matter publicly. For his part, “Daniel Fabricant, director of the FDA’s dietary supplement division, said he couldn’t comment about Craze or Frenzy.”

Fabricant “said the FDA has significant concerns that supplement companies are putting new dietary ingredients on the market without notifying the agency in advance, as required, and providing some basis of the ingredient’s safety.”
