More Diet Pills Spiked With Prescription Drugs
Young You Corporation has been informed by the FDA that their four weight loss supplements contain an undeclared drug called “Sibutramine” which is an FDA-approved drug used as an appetite suppressant for weight loss. The following products are affected by the recall:
2. One Weight Loss Pill
3. SlimDemand Capsules
4. Botanical Weight Loss
The products listed above were sold and distributed nationwide via the internet and at the company’s Weight Loss and Rejuvenation Center in Tarzana. FDA advises that these products pose a threat to consumers because sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias or stroke.
Why Spike Diet Pills With Drugs?
Because drugs work and most supplements don’t. Yes, I said it. Nearly all of the herbs you see on diet pill labels do not cause fat loss. When people want to lose fat quickly, they turn to diet pills for a quick fix. If a company can add drugs or other herbal stimulants to their products, consumers will “feel” the product working and tell others about how great the product works. This of course creates positive word of mouth which leads to further sales. It’s for this reason that caffeine is in nearly every diet pill on store shelves.
Sixth Supplement Recall This Week
Yes the FDA has recalled a ton of supplements in the last few months and this is only the beginning. With new government regulations being placed on supplement companies and the factories that make these products, all companies will be forced to start improving the quality of their products. This is great for consumers but many of the small and mid-sized supplement companies will not be able to afford to adhere to the new government regulations.
