Weight loss Pills : FDA Warns

FDA warns against “misleading” weight loss pills

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers should not use Slimming Beauty Bitter Orange Slimming Capsules which claim to be '100 percent herbal' but contain the prescription-only stimulant sibutramine.

FDA tests revealed that the capsules contain "excessive amounts of sibutramine," a stimulant which could cause high blood pressure, stroke or heart attack in some consumers. “Sibutramine is not listed among the pill’s ingredients and could harm users, especially those with heart conditions,” according to anFDA warning statement.
Heart palpitations
Even healthy users could experience harmful side effects such as anxiety, nausea, heart palpitations, and increased heart rate or increased blood pressure, it added. In addition sibutramine can interact with other medications to create side effects that are even more hazardous.
A powerful stimulant, sibutramine should not be used without a prescription due to the safety risks associated with it.
FDA said the product’s label is misleading because it “….indicates that it is a natural vitamin and calcium capsule for use in children as young as two years old."
The capsules are sold online by Beautiful Health Inc., formerly known as LL Health and Beauty.
Sample packets are also distributed at community events such as the 40th Annual Mexican Independence Day Parade in Chicago last month.
Slimming Beauty pill packets contain four capsules in a small plastic bag with English and Spanish wording.
Side effects
According to Slimming Beauty’s packaging circulated by the FDA, the company claims: “The capsule has passed the Chinese drug certification food GMP (Good Management Practice) standard certification and is proved to be safe and free of side effects.”
But FDA officials have reported several cases of major side effects caused by using the product.
A label on the package headed “Supplement Facts” lists the contents as being: Bitter orange, mulberry leaf, jobstears seed, evening primrose oil, cassia seed, oriental water plantain rhizome and lotus leaf.
Consumers and doctors are asked to report adverse side effects associated with using Slimming Beauty capsules to the FDA at www.fda.gov.medwatch/report.htm.

World Obesity Day 26 October 2010 & WHO Statistics

Obesity has reached epidemic proportions globally, with more than 1 billion adults overweight - at least 300 million of them clinically obese - and is a major contributor to the global burden of chronic disease and disability. Often coexisting in developing countries with under-nutrition, obesity is a complex condition, with serious social and psychological dimensions, affecting virtually all ages and socioeconomic groups.

Increased consumption of more energy-dense, nutrient-poor foods with high levels of sugar and saturated fats, combined with reduced physical activity, have led to obesity rates that have risen three-fold or more since 1980 in some areas of North America, the United Kingdom, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, the Pacific Islands, Australasia and China.The obesity epidemic is not restricted to industrialized societies; this increase is often faster in developing countries than in the developed world.

Obesity and overweight pose a major risk for serious diet-related chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and stroke, and certain forms of cancer. The health consequences range from increased risk of premature death, to serious chronic conditions that reduce the overall quality of life. Of especial concern is the increasing incidence of child obesity.
