Overview

Despite its name, vitamin O is not a vitamin. It claims to be a liquid form of oxygen that can be used as a medicine. However, vitamin O is more likely to be nothing more than water and minerals. The manufacturer of vitamin O was charged by the United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for making unsupported claims about their product. In May 2000, they agreed to pay $375,000 to the FTC to settle these charges.

People use vitamin O for conditions such as infections, depression, joint pain, stomach problems, and many others, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

How does it work ?

Vitamin O supposedly contains ingredients that release oxygen, but there is little scientific evidence to back this claim.
