Be Wary of Undeclared Ingredients In Weight Loss Pills

With so many weight loss pills, supplements, and related products on the market it can be difficult to find out which ones are safe. One way is to go to the FDA list of tainted weight loss products, this is a list that contains products that have hidden ingredients that could be harmful, illegal, and could lead to many serious problems. Here is a list of some of the most recent warnings issued by the FDA.

  • Ultimate Formula Bee Pollen Capsules— FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that “Ultimate Formula” contains sibutramine. Sibutramine is a controlled substance that was removed from the market in October 2010 for safety reasons. The product poses 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. This product may also interact, in life-threatening ways, with other medications a consumer may be taking. Capsules
