October 18, 2013 — The Health Sciences Authority (HSA) in Singapore is warning the public about liver damage from OxyElite Pro. They warned it has been linked to “numerous cases of serious liver injuries in the United States (US) and one case in Hong Kong.” OxyElite Pro is not approved for sale in Singapore.
Health officials in Singapore are also testing OxyElite Pro products to find out what may have caused the liver injuries. They seized products that were being sold illegally over the internet, tested them, and discovered a stimulant drug called DMAA and yohimbine. 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 is an extract of the bark of the yohimbe tree, an evergreen found in Africa. It is a popular bodybuilding supplement because it increases blood-flow to the limbs and peripheral arteries, with mild stimulant effects. It is also an aphrodisiac that can be used to treat sexual dysfunction, especially erectile dysfunction caused by SSRI antidepressants.
