Are All Weight Loss Products Safe?

No!  In fact, it is up to you, the consumer, to do your research on diet supplements!


Recalls of weight loss products such as the most recently recalled Hydroxycut products (14 in all!) give the whole industry of nutritional supplements and weight loss a bad name doing a disservice to the many companies, such as Active 8, who go to great lengths to make sure their products are safe. In this most recent recall by the FDA 1, consumers are warned that the Hydroxycut products that were being marketed for weight loss and boosting energy could have harmful effects, especially potentially causing problems with the liver, seizures, cardiovascular disorders or kidney failure.

Another FDA warning 2 just came out regarding the authorization to destroy more than 23,300 bottles of three body-building supplements distributed by LF Sciences, LLC that were marketed for body builders. And most of us have heard about the side effects of some popular diet programs that are currently on the market today.

It is difficult as a consumer to be completely informed about such products, especially when it is a big company with multiple products, because the nutritional supplement industry does not have the same type of regulations that oversee regular pharmaceutical medications and many over-the-counter products.

There ARE safe products out there with the scientific evidence to back them up. Active 8’s clinical weight loss plan developed by Dr. Steelman for in-home use has three different supplements as part of The Active 8 Better Health Better Life Diet program. It also includes protein drinks, a weight loss plan, a free online diet journal, and free online support resources to give the dieter the best possible tools to enable them to lose the weight they want.

The first is a supplement combination comprised mainly of Garcinia cambogia3 and chromium Polynicotinate 4). This potent combination has been shown in research studies to reduce sugar cravings and lower body fat by influencing carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism.

The second supplement that is a part of Dr. Steelman’s Active 8 Better Health Better Life Diet Plan is composed of Phase 2®, which is an all natural extract from the white kidney bean, Phaseolus vulgaris Researchers have found5 that it helps to reduce the digestion of dietary starches. The FDA has recognized this as a legitimate weight loss tool, but it is not a miracle cure. You still have to watch what you eat and not overload on the calories to lose weight!

The third supplement utilized is a very high grade of nopal cactus – a traditional natural plant long used by the native Indian cultures of the Southwest and Mexico to help control diabetes. Many research studies6 back its ability to not only control blood sugars, but help to block carbs and fats from being absorbed. There are also some studies that suggest it may help lower cholesterol along with reducing hangovers, but further research is needed to substantiate these benefits.

Most importantly, even though this is an endorsement for The Active 8 Better Health Better Life Diet program, this is a safe and effective program with real scientific basis behind it that Dr. Steelman has put together for Active 8.  Followed and utilized properly, it gives the dieter a powerful combination to lose weight effectively without the dangers highlighted by so many other diet programs. So, if you are one of the millions of Americans who are looking for safe, effective weight loss programs, you can rest assured that  The Active 8 Better Health Better Life Diet plan is one that you can trust!*
