Hello...

First of all, these supplements shouldn't be taken by people under the age of 18. I am not a big fan of "diet pills" and while the company who manufactures these can say just about anything they want...Unless they have been approved by the FDA, I wouldn't suggest taking them.

Lastly, with a known V-Tach arrhythmia, any type of "diet pill" is a NO,NO! Please consider the pros and cons if you choose to take these.
