Most of the women using the diet supplement, Pai You Guo have experienced side effects such as insomnia, palpitations, fainting and addiction to the product. Yet, the supplement continues to be sold.
recently ran an article on women who continue to use a weight-loss
supplement that was recalled in 2009 due to dangerous ingredients.
According to the article, “Pai You Guo contains...sibutramine and
phenolphthalein, both of which are banned in the United States because
they increase the risk of heart attack, stroke and cancer. Most of the
women using the supplement have experienced side effects such as
insomnia, palpitations, fainting and addiction to the product.” Still,
Pai You Guo is available on store shelves and online.
“Many men are also using these products in record numbers,” adds
Dian. “Weight-loss pills are often dangerous, causing irregular
heartbeats, heart attacks, high blood pressure and even death in some
cases. There are many powerful ingredients in over-the-counter weight
loss pills that are comparable to amphetamines. These pills are not
regulated or approved by the FDA, and the number of possible deaths
caused by their use is unclear.”
Tom adds, “People are frustrated with lack of results from common
diet and exercise and are gullible enough to believe slick marketing
campaigns. There is no safe or effective pill or supplement for weight
loss. Their effects are dangerous and temporary at best. The only
people who benefit from them are the people who sell them. Save your
money and your health.”
Fat loss and improvement in health, says the Griesels, come rapidly
from following sensible advice. Proper diet, activity and lifestyle
changes have benefits that greatly exceed most people’s expectations.
Even if you have had difficulty achieving an ideal body composition and
are frustrated, the Griesels urge dieters not to resort to weight-loss
pills or supplements.
