FDA Investigates Workout Supplement
By Paul da Costa on April 27, 2015
In a day and age when more and more individuals are worried about their health and their weight, an increasing number of people turn to supplements to help reach their goals. It is important, however, to exercise care before taking any supplement because, in some cases, you may not be ingesting what you originally thought.
For example, the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) is currently investigating a workout supplement called Tri-Methyl Xtreme. The supplement is said to contain anabolic steroids that could potentially cause liver damage in users. The FDA is warning users of the supplement to look out for adverse symptoms such as fatigue or back pain.
Under current FDA rules, manufacturers are solely responsible for the safety of their products. The FDA does not regularly monitor the contents of supplements. In many cases, even after the FDA investigates into a supplement that contains prescription drug ingredients, the manufacturer does not change the product. Thus, the harmful effects of such supplements could continue.
