The sale of Bodygoal, a food supplement of plant origin supposed to make you lose weight, is suspended following cases of adverse effects.
The French drug authority (ANSM) has suspended the sale of the food supplement body goal. Supposed to facilitate weight loss and sold by the Body Sherry brand, this product contains a dangerous substance banned since 2010 in France. “It includes a dangerous component on the cardiovascular level”announces the ANSM this Wednesday, August 24.
The side effects reported were abdominal cramps, nausea and vomiting, diarrhoea, fever, anxiety attacks, dizziness and hallucinations.
The French drug authority has “taken a health policy decision to suspend […] the marketing of the Bodygoal product” sold by Body Sherry.
After receiving an alert on health problems in a person who consumed this product, the ANSM discovered that it contained a dangerous substance, sibutramine. Developed by the Abbott laboratory, this molecule has been marketed for its appetite suppressant effects. However, she was banned since 2010 in the European Union as it has been shown to increase the risk of cardiovascular events.
This Wednesday, the product is still on sale on the Body Sherry website
