A weight loss product promoted as an appetite suppressant for weight loss was found to contain two undeclared potent chemicals that could pose serious health risks to individuals with heart conditions, the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) said on Thursday (Sep 13).
In a news release, HSA warned members of the public not to purchase or consume the product, known as Ke Le, which has packaging labelled in Korean.
HSA tests found that the product contains ephedrine and pseudoephedrine, which are used to treat the common cold, flu and allergies by relieving symptoms such as coughing and a blocked nose.
The adverse effects include an increased heart rate, anxiety, insomnia, high blood pressure, stroke, seizures and even death, it added.

My 2 cents:
Nature has provided us with good food for weight loss. Yet most of us would instead look elsewhere to find that drug, supplement or other herbal weight loss tea for weight loss help.
Doctors have always advised us to eat fruits after a meal.
Fruits help us in 2 ways:
1) digestion (acid in all fruits),
2) clear of unwanted stuff from our bodies (fibre).
One should eat some fruits after a meal, including breakfast and tea breaks. The more food you eat, the more fruits you should eat, and less fruits if you have just eaten a little food.
I have been following this advice and I am happy with the outcome as this works better than physical exercises. You should try. It is natural and safe. Exercise is still needed for one to build strong bones and muscles.
