“These products have not been approved by the FDA, are illegal, and may be potentially harmful to unsuspecting consumers,” states an FDA news release.

Most of these products claim to be all natural or to only have herbal ingredients. But tests from the FDA discovered that many of them contain controlled substances and drugs that have not been approved in the U.S.

In most cases the amount of pharmaceutical ingredients were more than what the FDA has recommended. This poses a health risk to anyone using it. These drugs can cause high blood pressure, fast heart rate, seizures, heart attacks, strokes, and palpitations.
