Public FDA Warning about P57 Hoodia

Though I am sure many of you would be quick to point out various questionable decisions made by the FDA, I think we can all agree that in some instances, the association does serve an important purpose, especially when it warns us about the possible dangers certain products pose.

On October 18th, 2011, the FDA has released a public warning against a product called P57 Hoodia, for it uses an undeclared drug called sibutramine, a substance which was banned from the market a year earlier. It can increase blood pressure, your heart rate, and can be very dangerous for those with a history of problems related to the circulatory system. It has to be said that the problem lies not with the Hoodia Gordonii, but with the P57 Hoodia, the product itself. Other Hoodia Gordonii-based weight loss products are still good for the taking. You can read all about it in the post below:

Public Notification: “P57 Hoodia” Contains Undeclared Drug Ingredient

FDA Warning about P57 Hoodia

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers not to purchase or use “P57 Hoodia,” a product for weight loss sold on various websites and in some retail stores, and manufactured by Huikng Pharmaceutical.

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that “P57 Hoodia” contains sibutramine. Sibutramine is a controlled substance that was removed from the U.S. market in October 2010 for safety reasons. The product poses a threat to consumers because sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, or stroke. This product may also interact in life threatening ways with other medications a consumer may be taking.

Consumers should stop using this product immediately and throw it away. Consumers who have experienced any negative side effects should consult a health care professional as soon as possible.

As I said above, only the specific P57 Hoodia is affected by the problem, and there are still plenty of other Hoodia products you could use to lose weight. As a matter of fact, I have already reviewed a few of them here, so if you'd like to check out Hoodia Gordonii products that are safe and actually work.
