Maine-based Global Biotechnologies was raided by federal marshals Wednesday at the request of the US Food and Drug Administration. “The company has made claims on its website, in promotional materials, and on the products’ labels that its products can diagnose, cure, mitigate, treat, or prevent human diseases,” said the FDA in a statement. Seized products included Glucanol and Immunol -- labeled for immune system support -- Lactopril, which claims to help reduce “gastrointestinal inflammation associated with Crohn’s and IBS,” and Healthy Trac, which purports to lower cholesterol, blood glucose, and insulin levels, according to the FDA.
