Just a couple of years ago, a company called MuscleTech produced dietary supplements with ephedra that was believed to have caused strokes, heart attacks and death. That company went into bankruptcy and put new dietary supplements on the market under known as Hydroxycut. Now it appears that this new Hydroxcut product may be just as dangerous as the old product.
The FDA has received 23 incident reports of liver damage in users of Hydroxycut supplements. These injuries include jaundice, liver damage, and even liver transplant. One reported case involves a 19-year-old who died as a result of the associated liver damage. Symptoms of serious liver disease include jaundice (yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes) and brown urine.
Currently the FDA has recalled the following products:
Hydroxycut Regular Rapid Release Caplets Hydroxycut Caffeine-Free Rapid Release Caplets Hydroxycut Hardcore Liquid Capsules Hydroxycut Max Liquid Capsules Hydroxycut Regular Drink Packets Hydroxycut Caffeine-Free Drink Packets Hydroxycut Hardcore Drink Packets (Ignition Stix)
