Dietary Supplements Discovered to Contain Dangerous Undisclosed Ingredients

Recent months have witnessed the dietary supplement industry receive an incredible amount of criticism for the increased presence of negligent practices. As a result, several lawsuits have been filed, insinuating an influx of malpractice on behalf of numerous dietary supplement manufacturers. The list of alleged transgressions consists primarily of companies who have knowingly mislead consumers with fraudulent advertisement campaigns or placed undisclosed drugs in their products. The most recent infraction has witnessed the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advise consumers not to purchase or use “Japan Weight Loss Blue.”

While information pertaining to Japan Weight Loss Pills (Blue Version) is already difficult to find, illegitimate marketing campaigns from several vendors delude the already ambiguous situation. However, consumers are led to believe that Japan Weight Loss Blue is a second generation anti-fat ingredient, capable of eradicating fat chains and reducing belly fat. According to advertisements, green algae is the mechanism of action responsible for the significant weight loss.

Unfortunately, a recent FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Japan Weight Loss Blue contains undisclosed ingredients with the potential to cause significant complications. According to the analysis, Japan Weight Loss Blue contains sibutramine, analogs of sibutramine, and ephedrine alkaloids. Sibutramine is a controlled substance that was removed from the U.S. market in October 2010 for safety reasons.

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.

The presence of ephedrine alkaloids was also detected in the recent FDA analysis. As a result, the FDA has warned consumers against the use Japan Weight Loss Blue dietary supplements because they may coincide with catastrophic complications. Subsequently, recent studies have confirmed that ephedrine alkaloids raise blood pressure and otherwise stress the circulatory system. Such adverse events may lead to the following complications:

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Rapid, pounding, irregular heart beat
  • Other cardiac issues
  • Death
