In an official statement on Thursday, JFDA Director-General Nizar Muhaidat highlighted that these products were also marketed and sold in violation of regulations, without obtaining the required special food advertisement permits, the Jordan News Agency, Petra reported.

The revoked supplements
The three supplements that were revoked, included: Urotrin 20 Capsules, difort Advanced 20 Capsules, and Tonor Mix Advanced 20 Capsules.

Urotrin 20 Capsules
According to the JFDA, Urotrin 20 Capsules was improperly marketed, making false claims about its effectiveness in treating sexual dysfunction and prostatitis. These claims contradict the approved product declaration card and the product approval letter, which specifically stated that product is authorized for urinary health purposes.

Difort Advanced 20 Capsules
Regarding the product Difort Advanced 20 Capsules, Muhaidat said that it was inappropriately advertised and promoted, falsely asserting its ability to control blood sugar levels, regulate glucose levels, and prevent vision problems, hair loss, and urinary issues. However, the approved product declaration card states that its intended purpose is to support sugar metabolism.

Furthermore, the product Tonor Mix Advanced 20 Capsules, which was approved for supporting sugar metabolism, was falsely promoted with claims of stabilizing blood pressure, maintaining normal cholesterol levels, and providing energy and vitality.

Muhaidat highlighted that the specialized technical staff at JFDA's Special Dietary Foods Department closely monitor advertisements of dietary supplements and special foods on social media. They scrutinize both unapproved products and advertisements that violate regulations based on the 2017 Special Dietary Foods Approval Instructions.
