Woman Needs Liver Transplant After Taking Saba ACE Diet Pills

A previously-healthy 35 year-old woman developed liver failure and needed a transplant after taking Saba ACE for just two weeks, according to a case report published in Gastroenterology.

Researchers warned that Saba ACE contained at least two ingredients that have already been linked to dozens of cases of liver damage, including DMAA and green tea extract.

The woman developed a number of serious complications, including:

  • Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes)
  • Edema (swelling of the limbs)
  • Encephalopathy (brain damage due to swelling)
  • High levels of toxins in the bloodstream
  • Ascites (fluid accumulation in the abdomen)
  • Bleeding
  • Liver inflammation
  • Liver necrosis

Violations of Good Manufacturing Practices

In July 2014, the manufacturer of Saba ACE issued a warning letter to AMS Health Sciences, LLC for violations of good manufacturing practices.

The FDA was concerned because Saba ACE was being illegally marketed as a treatment for health conditions. Furthermore, the agency was concerned about the source of several stimulant ingredients:

“The product labels fail to identify the sources for Methyl Synephrine or Synephrine and Phenylethylamine (PEA) in the proprietary blend of dietary ingredients listed in the supplement facts panels.”

Saba Shark Cartilage Diet Pills Recalled

The FDA recalled Saba Shark Cartilage Complex in October 2014 due to possible contamination with Salmonella. Although no illnesses were linked to the supplements, the FDA warned about several life-threatening side effects like endocarditis, arthritis, and arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms).
