In our society, there is a definite push to be as beautiful and skinny as possible. It is ingrained in us as small children and even more so as adults.
So it is no surprise that products are out there that are marketed to help us lose weight and keep it off. Among these products are protein shakes, dietary supplements, and vitamins. There are tens of thousands of these products sold in the U.S. and some are effective, but some are not. Some are even pretty dangerous.
The truth about dietary supplements is that there are not a lot of regulations on these types of products by the Food and Drug Administration, which assumes they are harmless unless proven otherwise.
Manufacturers of these products do not need to prove they are effective before they market and sell them. These companies don’t need to inform consumers about side effects. And this is even when the major active ingredient has known side effects. Not only can the dietary supplement cause side effects that range from liver damage to heart attacks, it may also cause other serious issues when interacting with other medicines you may be taken. As a consumer, it is crucial that you know about the products you are taking and the potential risk they may have on your health. Watch the video now to learn more.
