The FDA has warned USPlabs that a link exists between the OxyElite Pro supplement and liver illnesses. Although the manufacturers tried to dismiss the lawsuit, victims are seeking damages ranging from the tens of thousands to millions of dollars. OxyElite Pro lawsuits have won more than tens of millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts. Read on to learn how you can file a lawsuit against the manufacturer of OxyElite Pro.
DMAA is not a dietary ingredient
The product is a dietary supplement with DMAA as the only ingredient, but the FDA has refused to approve it as a nutrient. While the FDA has approved certain supplements, DMAA has never been deemed a dietary ingredient. According to the agency, the drug manufacturers have not submitted any safety data. Further, it is unclear whether OxyElite Pro contains DMAA or not.
The FDA issued two warning letters about OxyElite Pro in 2012, and the company has not yet produced an official statement addressing the issue. However, the company has voluntarily recalled the product as of November 12, 2020. This decision has raised questions about the safety of DMAA and its effects. Therefore, consumers should be cautious when choosing a dietary supplement. It is not advised to take products that contain DMAA unless they have been recommended by a doctor.
It is a stimulant
The company behind OxyElite Pro has been accused of deceptive marketing of a dangerous stimulant, so it was only a matter of time before the government caught on. However, USP Labs still sells OxyElite Pro online, but only from a small number of websites. This company has denied any wrongdoing and has also been accused of trying to ‘offload’ its stock. Those stocks have now been destroyed under FDA supervision.
Moreover, OxyElite Pro was banned from military bases in Hawaii in 2011 after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) discovered that it contained a stimulant known as DMAA. The company’s safety review, which spanned two years, found that the ingredient DMAA was not significantly more hazardous than caffeine. However, it is important to note that the substance is a potent stimulant that has adverse cardiovascular effects.
It is not a preservative
Even though OxyElite Pro is a banned drug, it is safe and effective. OxyElite was banned because of the misuse it caused among users. While many preservatives are perfectly safe, others can be harmful and should not be used. One example is citric acid, which is safe and is naturally found in citrus fruits. It is a great way to protect food from oxidation and prevent spoilage of food.
The ingredient that was added to OxyElite Pro is called Angeline, and it is extracted from the fruit of the bael tree, which is native to India and Southeast Asia. The fruit is considered sacred in much of India, and its extracts are widely used in traditional medicine. Bael extracts are effective for treating a variety of conditions, including gastrointestinal complaints, and have several traditional uses in traditional medicine. Because the active ingredients of the fruit include furocoumarins and furoquinolin alkaloids, these extracts are a natural supplement. However, the ingredient used in OxyELITE Pro is synthetic and may have contaminants, synthetic precursors, and racemic forms.
It is an illegal ingredient
If you’re looking for a supplement that will burn fat, you’ve probably heard about OxyElite Pro. However, did you know that it contains an illegal ingredient? This product was recalled by the FDA after more than 50 Hawaii residents developed acute hepatitis and liver failure. One person died from the disease and three others needed liver transplants. Its safety is a concern, which is why USPLabs has promised to destroy any remaining inventory of OxyElite Pro.
In addition to the lawsuits over its illegal ingredients, OxyElite Pro’s makers have also been hit with criminal charges. The Justice Department alleges that the supplement’s key ingredients were synthesized in a Chinese lab rather than extracted from natural ingredients. A criminal indictment was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas against USPlabs, S.K. Laboratory, and five of the company executives. The companies face charges of conspiracy to commit money laundering, wire fraud, and food mislabeling.
It is adulterated with a geranium stem
One of the biggest issues surrounding dietary supplements is whether they contain DMAA. In 1996, a New Zealand man died after taking a party pill laced with DMAA. After this discovery, the New Zealand government banned the substance. OxyElite Pro lists DMAA as an ingredient, but USPlabs claims it is a natural substance derived from Asian geranium. The company has said that it is not an adulterant because it is not a banned substance and has been used for more than a century.
In fact, the ingredient DMAA was first manufactured by Eli Lily in the 1940s. Since then, the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) has told its members not to label their supplements with geranium plant parts or oil. Health Canada has also said that DMAA does not occur naturally in geranium and requires drug approval before being used in supplements.
It is not a dietary ingredient
OxyElite Pro is a supplement made with the fruit of the bael tree, which is native to India and Southeast Asia. It is revered throughout much of India and Southeast Asia. Its fruits are not only consumed as food but also have numerous uses in traditional medicine, such as addressing digestive complaints. Bael extracts contain several active ingredients including furocoumarins and furoquinolin alkaloids. However, it was suspected that USPLabs added synthetic Angeline to OxyElite Pro to make it safer for consumers.
As a result, USPlabs LLC agreed to remove the OxyElite Pro brand from the market. This move comes after the FDA destroyed $22 million of the product. In a recent report to Congress, the FDA said that USPLabs had violated federal law, which requires manufacturers to report any new dietary ingredient to the FDA for approval. As of November 2013, USPlabs is required to remove OxyElite Pro from the market.
