Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments I am a personal trainer and I have been safely and effectively training many people for years. I feel that as a human being I feel that I have the right to do what ever it is I wish to my body. As long as all of the side affects and risks of taking such supplements or listed on the bottle then it should not be the blame for the supplement companies.There are many lawsuits out there against Dietary Supplements Containing Ephedrine Alkaloids because they are causing problems with people’s health. Those people who are decrementing their health by taking these supplements are the exact same people listed on many bottles under the do not use if you have these following implications. Everyone always counts how many problems and statistics about people who have been hurt by using ephedrine but how about trying to put a cap on the number of people whose lives have completely been changed and those who have benefited more than we can even put into words. You cannot put a price on that, I believe, that there may not even be an adjective in the English language so great that it could even try to represent the feelings one has when overcoming huge obstacles as in weight loss.! It may not be only the supplement that may have gotten a person from having no self esteem to having extraordinary confidence, but it may have been a key at some point in time to the door that unlocked the motivation that it took to reach that person's goal.
