Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments I have been taking BioLean from Wellness International for a year and a half [18 months]. My sister has been taking it for that long, as well. I take one to two [1 to 2] packets daily. I've lost 50lbs. Before and since I've taken BioLean [with ephedra], I 've been on medication for high blood pressure, congestive heart failure and type 2 diabetes. My blood pressure has decreased, heart condition has gotten better and the dosage of meds for my sugar has been decreased. My sister has lost weight, as well. Wellness International tells me that many doctors prescribe BioLean with ephedra for their patients. They tell me Johns Hopkins and Baylor Universities have done or are doing studies on BioLean which will add credibility. You know, I've been on a lot of diets which many would say could be harmful, like starvation or cut carbohydrates out ofthe diet, only to return to eating properly and gain the weight I'd lost and more. With BioLean, I haven't given anything up. Let's be sensible. Anything not taken properly, can harm you. I've heard that people have died from Tylenol and/or aspirin. I've read about companies that prescribe too much ephedra in daily dosage and even others that load their product with too much caffiene.
