Weight Loss Supplement SlimQuick® Linked to Serious Liver Problems

SlimQuick

From weight loss to memory improvement, dietary and herbal supplements are advertised as safe and effective remedies to common ailments. However, according to a recent case study, SlimQuick®, a popular weight loss supplement, may cause more harm than good.

The study, published in the World Journal of Hepatology, detailed the case of a woman who had been using SlimQuick® for three months and experienced symptoms of liver toxicity. These included dark urine, acholic stools (stools that are pale or clay-colored), abdominal pain, and fatigue. In the report, researchers linked green tea extract, a major ingredient in SlimQuick®, to the patient's liver injury.

According to the study, green tea extract contains a chemical known as epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) which has been associated with liver toxicity in the past. Additionally, SlimQuick® also contains a chemical known as hydroquinone, which, according the University of Maryland Medical Center, can cause liver damage when taken for a long period of time.

SlimQuick® is marketed to women as a weight loss supplement that works by burning fat, reducing appetite, and increasing energy. It is available in both pill and powder form and is sold as SlimQuick® Fat Burner, SlimQuick® Caffeine Free, and SlimQuick® Razor. Currently, SlimQuick® does not carry a warning label, but it does list nausea, abdominal pain, dark urine, and jaundice as possible side effects, all of which are symptoms of liver failure.
