Be wary when you see slimming supplements with tempting messages like magic pill to lose weight, melt fat or lose weight without diet or exercise. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is not. These products may not help you lose weight and could be dangerous.
Slimming products that are marketed as dietary supplements are sometimes adulterated with prescription ingredients or controlled substances. These ingredients do not appear on the product label and could harm you. The FDA makes public notifications about slimming products handled.
