Vitamin and Supplement Attorneys at Gilman Law, LLP Are Investigating FDA Claims of Anabolic Steroids As Ingredients in Healthy Life Chemistry by Purity First B-50


Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 30, 2013

The Federal Drug Administration warned consumers on July 26, 2013, that they should not use or purchase Healthy Life Chemistry By Purity First B-50, which is marketed as a vitamin B dietary supplement, when in fact it contains anabolic steroids.

A preliminary FDA laboratory analysis indicated that the product contains two potentially harmful anabolic steroids —methasterone, a controlled substance, and dimethazine. Neither of these ingredients is listed in the label and should not be in a dietary supplement that consumers purchase over-the-counter.

Methasterone and dimethazine and other anabolic steroids are known to cause acute liver injury and have serious long-term side effects in women, men, and children. These types of steroids are also linked to increased risk of heart attack and stroke; masculinization of women; shrinkage of the testicles; breast enlargement; infertility in males; and short stature in children.
