The United States: Natural Body Solution: Public Notification - Undeclared Drug Ingredient Sibutramine
FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Natural Body Solution contains sibutramine. Sibutramine is a controlled substance that was removed from the US market in October 2010 for safety reasons. The product poses a threat to consumers because sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, or stroke. These products may also interact, in life-threatening ways, with other medications a consumer may be taking. Natural Body Solution is promoted and sold for weight loss and sold on various websites and in some retail stores. FDA is advising consumers not to purchase or use Natural Body Solution.

Please refer to the following website in FDA for details:

In Hong Kong, the above product is not a registered pharmaceutical product.
