Deadly Formula: Bee Pollen Weight Loss Supplement Contains Dangerous Ingredient

Deadly Formula: Bee Pollen Weight Loss Supplement Contains Dangerous Ingredient

It is an established fact that many of the dietary supplements that are typically promoted for weight loss, body building and sexual enhancement have been proven to be outright dangerous. Joining this tainted supplements list is Ultimate Formula Bee Pollen Capsules, a product promoted and sold for weight loss.

Ultimate Formula Bee Pollen Capsules, commonly known as Ultimate Formula, is promoted on www.zixiutangsuccess.com, and possibly sold in some retail stores.

The FDA is warning consumers not to purchase or use Ultimate Formula as laboratory analysis has confirmed the presence of Sibutramine, a banned substance, in the supplement. Sibutramine was removed from the market in October 2010 for safety reasons.

According to the FDA, Ultimate Formula poses a threat to consumers with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, or stroke because the drug ingredient Sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and heart rate in some patients.

The product may also interact, in life-threatening ways, with other medications a consumer may be taking, noted the regulatory agency in a statement.
