“Elations” Glucosamine- and Chondroitin-based Supplements
October 2013: A class-action lawsuit was filed against The Elations Company, LLC and Beverages Holdings, LLC for allegedly falsely marketing the health benefits and effectiveness of the “Elations” line of glucosamine- and chondroitin-based supplements. Specifically, plaintiffs allege that the companies deceived consumers by representing that these supplements increased joint comfort and flexibility and reduced joint pain when, in reality, there is no scientific evidence to support such claims. (Murray et al. v. The Elations Company, LLC and Beverages Holdings, LLC, Case No. 13-cv-02357, S. D. CA.).
