The Dangers of Unregulated Weight Loss Supplements

An ever present issue within the weight loss market is the unregulated products that enter the market and are fairy easy to purchase. It is an issue that this year has seen an increase in cases of illnesses and even deaths.

Unregulated weight loss supplements can contain chemicals which are not safe for human consumption, some unregulated supplements have been found to contain the chemical 2,4-dinitrophenol (DNP) which is toxic and unfit for human consumption.

DNP can cause poisoning, symptoms of which include fever, dehydration, nausea, vomiting, restlessness, flushed skin, sweating, dizziness, headaches, rapid respiration and rapid or irregular heartbeat. These features can progress to coma and although very unlikely given the right medical attention death.

In the UK it is reported that unregulated weight loss supplements have resulted in five deaths in 2015 which is an increase when compared to recent years. It is very important to be aware of the medical backing of any weight loss supplements you are buying. We recommend that when purchasing weight loss supplements you look for official medical approving from organisations such as FDA.

The increase in cases in 2015 shows that unregulated weight loss supplements are managing to easily access the market which is concerning for those looking for an effective and safe product, Here at Best Ways to Lose Weight Fast we only recommend products that have been clinically/medically backed, visit our best fat burners page to learn more about our top recommended products.

One important thing to watch out when buying weight loss products online is the so called ‘start my free trial’ or ‘free trial’ offers. Often these are not free as you will be subscribed into some sort of payment plan for the product even if the first batch is free. These subscriptions can often then be very difficult to cancel and often if a product is being sold this way it can be an indication that the product could be one of the unregulated products in the market.

Unregulated weight loss products seem to be an ever growing problem for the weight loss market. Here on this site we aim to be completely transparent in the products we recommend, and only recommend products that are well established and have clinical or medical studies to back them up.
