Weight Loss Supplements May Not Be that Good for Your Health
A team of researchers from the US analyzed a range of supplements for weight loss and workout and concluded that they might be harmful to health due to the content of higenamine that may have toxic effects on the heart.
In the course of research, the scientists found that many supplements not only contain higenamine but also that companies producing these supplements don’t indicate the dosage of this compound properly.
John Travis, a senior research scientist at NSF International in Ann Arbor, says: “We're urging competitive and amateur athletes, as well as general consumers, to think twice before consuming a product that contains higenamine. Beyond the doping risk for athletes, some of these products contain extremely high doses of a stimulant with unknown safety and potential cardiovascular risks when consumed."
