Nyloxin is yet another non-functional homeopathic medicine sold through a multi-level marketing scam. The product is notable mainly for its cable TV advertisements featuring a cobra logo, making it the first homeopathic medicine marketed for what it is.

Nyloxin topical gel supposedly contains a homeopathic 4X (1 in 10,000) dilution of Asian cobra venom.[1] As evidence of efficacy, the Nyloxin website cites numerous studies of snake venom, none of which are homeopathic studies.[2] In 2019, the US Food and Drug Administration sent a warning letter to the manufacturer's CEO indicating that they had found various Nyloxin products to be, at that time, misbranded and unapproved new drugs.[3]
