October 18, 2013 — Singapore’s Health Sciences Authority (HSA) issued an advisory to alert the public about potential liver injuries from OxyElite Pro. The product is not approved for sale in Singapore. It has been linked to at least 24 cases in the United States and one case in Hong Kong.
Health authorities in Singapore are investigating the ingredients in OxyElite Pro to find out what may have caused the liver injuries. They have seized products containing DMAA, a controversial stimulant. USPLabs, the Texas-based manufacturer of OxyElite Pro, supposedly destroyed over $8 million worth of the products in June 2013.
HSA says the product is being sold illegally over the internet. They warned:
“Preliminary laboratory tests conducted by HSA on the “OxyELITE Pro” capsules bought from an Internet seller have found the product to contain 1,3-dimethylamylamine (DMAA) and yohimbine, which are potent western medicinal ingredients that are not allowed to be present in supplements sold locally.”
Yohimbine (or “yohimbe”) is a popular ingredient in bodybuilding supplements because it increases peripheral blood-flow, with mild stimulant and aphrodisiac effects. It is often used to treat sexual dysfunction, especially in people on antidepressants. According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), Yohimbine has been linked to reports of rapid heart beat, kidney failure, seizure, heart attack, and more.
