Lose Weight, but Destroy Your Liver?
We all want to lose weight every now and again, but are pills really worth it?
The answer is no-- not when your liver is at stake.
The diet pill, OxyElite Pro, has been pulled from shelves of "nutrition stores" [ironic] such as GNC due to 29 cases of liver failure and acute hepatitis linked to the jagged little pill.
The company insists that all products distributed are safe, but this one isn't quite cutting it.
With that, the FDA sent out a warning against all fat-burning supplements that contain DMAA earlier this year.
Two victims have endured liver transplants, and another individual died, according to Hawaii State Department of Health.
Of the 29 who fell ill, 24 were users of OxyElite Pro.
Symptoms include abdominal pain, discomfort, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea and/or vomiting, and yellow skin and eyes. Now, many of these [all but the yellow] are symptoms of PMS or pregnancy, as well, so don't WebMD-diagnose yourself too quick.
It is best to steer clear of the fatal 'fat-burning' pill route. Save your liver; save yourself, and lose fat the healthy way-- eat right and exercise.
Do you believe in fat-burning pills, and have you ever used OxyElite Pro?
