OxyElite Pro Linked to 40 Cases of Liver Failure in Hawaii

The Hawaii State Department of Health has confirmed that at least 40 new cases of alleged liver failure have been linked to OxyElite Pro (OEP), a controversial pre-workout and weight loss dietary supplement. 

As a result of these events, the Department of Health sent out an alert to medical professionals around the country requesting that doctors and dietitians report any patients suffering from liver conditions who were taking OxyElite Pro or other similar dietary supplements. The active ingredient in OEP, dimethylamylamine (DMAA), has recently been linked to heart attacks, heat strokes, seizures, liver failure, and death.
