The dietary supplement for muscle growth known as Mass Destruction is not safe for consumption, warned the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) earlier this week. Following an alert from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, the FDA immediately issued a warning against use of the product.
Mass Destruction, which is manufactured for Blunt Force Nutrition in Sims, North Carolina, contains at least one synthetic anabolic steroid according to its label, and the product has been the source of at least one serious illness. As reported by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, one user of Mass Destruction – a 28-year-old male in good health – developed liver failure after only a few weeks of using the dietary supplement. The man is now awaiting a liver transplant.
Studies show that liver injury can result from the use of any product that contains anabolic steroids or a steroid-like substance. Additional adverse side effects that can be experienced from the use of anabolic steroids include:
- Increased risk of heart attack and stroke
- Negative effects on blood lipid levels
- Male infertility
- Masculinization of women
- Short stature in children
If you have used or you are currently using the dietary supplement Mass Destruction and you are experiencing any of the following, then you should immediately speak to a healthcare professional:
- Abdominal or back pain
- Unexplained fatigue
- Discolored urine
All of the symptoms listed above can be warning signs of liver failure. Don’t wait to seek the expertise of your medical provider if you have experienced any adverse reactions from taking Mass Destruction for muscle growth.
The dietary supplement is currently sold in retail stores, as well as at fitness centers and online. The FDA will continue to investigate the product and work to identify the manufacturer of Mass Destruction. Until more information is revealed, users of the supplement are warned to cease use of the product at once.
