One of the biggest fraud in the weight loss industry are herbal companies that pedal their diet supplements, many have proven to be fatal. These companies claim their product will do everything from increasing your metabolism to melting fat while you sleep.
There is no "real" scientific evidence to back up these claims and the United States FDA (Federal Drug Administration) strongly urges consumers to beware of these products. Please visit http://vm.cfsan.fda.gov/~dms/wgtloss.html
Because diet supplements fall under the dietary supplements category, they don't get the same level of rigorous testing and approval required by most drugs. The best advice we can give ..... buyer beware.
Most of herbal products that claim easy weight loss use the herb Ephedrine or Ma Huang which is an amphetamine like substance that effects the central nervous system and speeds up the body. The side effects from these diet supplements are nervousness, increase anxiety, headaches, insomnia, and in some cases, even fatal. The FDA is considering that manufactures of these products put a warning on the label should dosage exceed 8 mg.

lost appreciable weight, and those who did, soon gained it
backed. Many quit using the products only after a few days
because of terrible side effects.
