While taking a supplement can be an effective way to get your body the nutrients it needs, taking certain types of these products may put users’ health at risk. The Ohio Workout Supplements Injury Lawyers with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy explain that one product in particular that is considered dangerous by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is OxyElite Pro.
Reports recently began to surface of users experiencing heart-related health events after taking OxyElite Pro, including fainting, heart attacks, and cardiac arrest. Investigators linked those conditions to an ingredient in the product called DMAA.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also recently associated the use of OxyElite Pro with the risk of suffering a bizarre liver illness. A total of 46 cases of the condition have been reported from as far away as Hawaii, with as many as 58 percent of the ill reporting they have used the dietary supplement.
Anyone in possession of the supplement is being instructed to halt its use immediately. The FDA went on to add that those who have been harmed by the product should not only speak with their health practitioner, but also report the incident to the FDA.
The law firm’s team of Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers encourage those who were injured by a workout supplement to discuss their legal rights and options with an attorney as well.
