FDA Tells Consumers to Stop Hydroxycut Use

The Dangers of Gimmicks

The FDA is now warning consumers to stop using several Hydroxycut products because of their connection to serious liver problems. Iovate Health Sciences, the company that distributes the products, has agreed to remove them from the market.
Health problems reportedly due to Hydroxycut product use include jaundice, elevated liver enzymes, liver damage requiring a liver transplant, seizures, cardiovascular disorders and muscle damage, and they have also been linked to one person's death as a result of liver failure.

Don’t Gamble with your Life

The 14 Hydroxcut products being recalled by the FDA include:
  • Hydroxycut Regular Rapid Release Caplets
  • Hydroxycut Caffeine-Free Rapid Release Caplets
  • Hydroxycut Hardcore Liquid Caplets
  • Hydroxycut Max Liquid Caplets
  • Hydroxycut Regular Drink Packets
  • Hydroxycut Caffeine-Free Drink Packets
  • Hydroxycut Hardcore Drink Packets (Ignition Stix)
  • Hydroxycut Max Drink Packets
  • Hydroxycut Liquid Shots
  • Hydroxycut Hardcore RTDs (Ready-to-Drink)
  • Hydroxycut Max Aqua Shed
  • Hydroxycut 24
  • Hydroxycut Carb Control
  • Hydroxycut Natural
Ano Lobb, a public health researcher has studied the effects of Hydroxycut and other dietary supplements and believes that the ingredient hydroxycitric acid may be to blame, which has previously been linked to liver problems in at least one other medical journal study. Lobb also warns that there are probably many other dietary supplements still on the market that contain that same potentially dangerous ingredient.
Hydroxycut products are marketed as dietary supplements that assist weight loss, fat burning, energy and water loss. Anyone experiencing side effects from Hydroxycut products is asked to report them to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program.
