Avoid Any Products Labelled OxyElite Pro : Potential Links To Liver Disease

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have investigated products labelled OxyElite Pro because of potential links to acute hepatitis, a type of liver disease. The FDA (and UK citizens would be wise to follow this advice too) recommend not to use any supplements labelled OxyElite Pro or VERSA-1 because it contains a substance called Aegeline, for which there is insufficient evidence supporting its safety for human consumption. Aegeline’s chemical name is N-[2-hydroxy-2(4-methoxyphenyl) ethyl]-3-phenyl-2-propenamide, so keep an eye out for this too!
