Leptopril Non-Ephedra Weight Control 190 caps.01/2009

Given the controversy over the use of ephedra and the banning of the substance in professional sports, it's only natural that some products will have NON-ephedra as a label. Ephedra is a stimulant product that boosts metabolism, increases energy, and aids in weight loss. And it's been linked to the deaths of professional athletes and is now labeled as a controlled substance. Now we have something called Leptopril (item #330094248438).

This is supposedly the generic version of Leptorpin, which is actually made by the same company. While the product is supposedly intended to induce weight loss, some have had some pretty bad reactions.

And the beauty of it...the product is actually based on what's known as the ECA stack - Ephedra, Caffeine, and Aspirin. Perhaps this is based on the OTHER version.

Either way...

"The FTC alleges that the respondents violated the FTC Act by making unsubstantiated fat and weight loss claims, false claims that clinical testing proves certain efficacy claims, and false claims that Daniel B. Mowrey, Ph.D, is a medical doctor."

Better hit that treadmill, folks.
