Healthy Life Chemistry B-50 contains Superdrol and Dimethazine

healthy life chemistry by purity firstIn a rather spectacular – not to mention ironic – blunder, a Vitamin B supplement from a supplement company called “Purity First” appears to have been contaminated with the designer steroids Methasteron and Dimethazine. Methasteron, better known as Superdrol, became a scheduled drug in 2012.

The FDA has received reports of 29 adverse incidents associated with the use of Healthy Life Chemistry By Purity First B-50. These reports include fatigue, muscle cramping, and myalgia (muscle pain), as well as abnormal laboratory findings for liver and thyroid function, and cholesterol levels.

Females who used this product reported unusual hair growth and missed menstruation, and males who used the product reported impotence and findings of low testosterone.

Some of the cases reported have resulted in hospitalization, but there were no reports of death or acute liver failure.

While this is almost undoubtedly a horrible accident caused primarily by carelessness on the part of their (presumably) Chinese supplier or contract manufacturer (and their own failure to perform adequate testing), it’s likely to have unpleasant ramifications for the owners of the inappropriately named “Purity First”.
