Beware of ‘Extreme’ Products

The FDA (America’s Food and Drug Administration) sent another alarming message this month after discovering the breast cancer drug Tamoxifen in a number of ‘ extreme’ protein powders. These type of products are often used by body builders to enhance muscle growth. Tamoxifen prevents breast tissue growth , which ‘sort of’ explains the presence of that in an Extreme Muscle Builder. A weird sort of Man Boob prevention. Still, Tamoxifen is not a good thing for a male, or any body, unless needed for medical reasons.

It’s not just the extreme powders that put you at a health risk; at the opposite end a large number of weight loss products contain many dangerous ingredients such as L-citruline, sibutramine, and oxedrine. All these have proven links to serious conditions.

So people, please be mindful of what you put in your body. Check ingredients; if it sounds unfamiliar, look it up at reputable sites. That is not necessarily the sales site! Or call a practitioner who cares and knows!

Live happy, live healthy:)
