【Supplement Warning】 Stimulant found in weight loss products

The Food and Drug Administration of the United States confirmed that the stimulant sibutramin is found in the weight loss products “Infinity” and “Lite Fit USA” as a hidden ingredient.

Sibutramin is classified as S6-Stimulants in the 2014 Prohibited List and is prohibited in-competition. In Hong Kong, sibutramine is a Part I poison and all sibutramine containing products have been banned since November 2010 because of the increased cardiovascular risk.

All athletes should stop using the products immediately. HKADC again takes this opportunity to warn athletes against the risk of taking supplement which could contain unlisted ingredients that are prohibited in sports and impose risk to your health.
