As recently as late 2009, Que She Diet Pills were being touted as a revolutionary product that through a combination of 11 Chinese herbs could help you lose weight by increasing your metabolism and energy and by helping your body digest food at an optimal level. Since then, however, the FDA has had very different things to say about Que She Diet Pills. As of July 2010, the FDA banned the sale or distribution of Que She Diet Pills in the United States because of undisclosed, controlled substances contained in its formula. While these ingredients have been used in the past for weight loss in the US, they were banned because of potentially serious health risks, including death.
Que She Diet Pills may still be found online and with different formulations, but because the company didn’t originally list that it contained illegal substances, even these “all-herbal” diet pills are highly suspect.
Que She Diet Pills Ingredients
Que She Diet Pills are said to contain the following herbal ingredients:
- Kudzu vine Root
- Coix Seed (Semen coicis)
- Chinese Hawthorn
- Lycicum Chinese (wolfberry)
- Chinese chrysanthemum
- Chinese Lotus Leaf
- Kelp (sea tangle)
- Radish seed
- Cassia seed
- Gynostemma pentaphyllum
- Tea polyphenol (extracted from Chinese Green Tea)
While these are all traditional Chinese herbs, some of which with at least a bit of evidence for being useful in weight loss, FDA testing of the original diet pills that were being sold around the US revealed the following ingredients:
- Fenfluramine – a stimulant which was part of the infamous “Fen-Phen” prescription diet pill that left a number of people dead from heart valve damage.
- Propranolol – a beta-blocker drug that is used to treat to treat tremors, chest pain, high blood pressure, and heart problems, though it may pose some risks to heart health as well.
- Sibutramine – a prescription chemical that was previously used as a weight loss treatment until it was discovered it caused an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
- Ephedrine – a fairly strong stimulant and bronchodilator (useful for asthma) that may also pose an increased risk of heart attach for those with cardiovascular problems or who are severely obese.
Que She Diet Pills Side Effects
Since we’re talking about a banned diet pill, clearly there are going to be some big side effects. We already mentioned the biggest, which was an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. Other commonly experienced side effects may include:
- Upset stomach
- Rapid heart rate
- Elevated blood pressure
Do Que She Diet Pills Work Well Enough to Buy?
Que She Diet Pills may work fairly well for those who have extremely low risk of developing heart problems (which is usually not the crowd that goes looking for strong diet pills), but by the end of using Que She these people may find themselves in a poorer state of health than when they started even if they are a little slimmer.
Since you would be buying Que She Diet Pills illegally, there is not going to be any sort of guarantee and no way to verify that the product is even legitimate. In any case, it is just never worth gambling your health when dieting, especially when there are better diet pills out there with far fewer side effects.
