Weight Loss Products by Young You Corporation

July 17, 2009

Audience: Consumers, cardiology healthcare professionals

Slimbionic, One Weight Loss Pill, SlimDemand Capsules, Botanical Weight Loss

Young You Corporation and FDA notified healthcare professionals and consumers that four weight loss dietary supplements sold and marketed by the firm (Slimbionic, One Weight Loss Pill, SlimDemand Capsules, Botanical Weight Loss) contain an undeclared drug ingredient, sibutramine, an FDA-approved drug used as an appetite suppressant for weight loss. The FDA has not approved the products as drugs; therefore the safety and effectiveness of this product is unknown. FDA advises that these products pose a threat to consumers because sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias or stroke.

The products were sold and distributed nationwide via the internet and at the company's Weight Loss and Rejuvenation Center in Tarzana, Ca.
