Megadosing can ultimately kill you. It is that simple. Unfortunately, a significant group out of the regular consumers of supplements, do it for all the wrong reasons, most frequently due to eating disorders. With the wrong motivation and lack of reliable information, it is common to see that a great number of us don’t take into account that there is a correct usage to these well marketed compliments. Taking more than the recommended dose of a dietary supplement as well as choosing a product not intended for your specific profile or needs can cause noxious effects such as an increase in blood pressure levels that could multiply your chances of having a heart attack. Some fat-blocking products are known to cause diarrhea and important fluid loss, while others heavily damage the liver and kidneys.

This is no joke! Users must be supervised by doctors or nutritionists when taking any type of supplement, including all oh so popular over the counter products.
