Consumer Review: I Noticed A Huge Increase In My Heart Rate Since Increasing My Dosage Of Metabolife.
I took Metabolife for about one and a half weeks at the rate of one pill in the morning, and one pill in the afternoon. With the exception of the very first pill I took, I never felt much except (maybe) a very slight reduction in appetite. I stopped for a few weeks and then, as of 2 days ago, decided to try taking 2 at one time (the directions indicate it is OK to take up to 8 a day, and I heard of many people taking 2 at one time, so I did not think it was a very big deal). For the last two days, I have taken 2 pills in the a.m. and 2 in the p.m. I have noticed a huge reduction in my appetite; however, I have also noticed a huge increase in my heart rate.
Though I admit I do not know my normal heart rate (I am only 23 years old and have always been told by my doctor that my heart rate was excellent so I never felt the need to "track" it), I know my heart is definitely beating much harder, if not much faster, as well. I have also recently heard that some people are dying from Metabolife. I try to steer from generalized and conclusional statements like that, especially when they are not supported by a concrete source, but I can't help but be a bit concerned. I read someone's opinion that Metabolife is basically speed. That concerns me.
What specifically does Metabolife do to blood pressure? I am a coffee drinker and I am sorry, but coffee never made my heart pump like this! Yes, all the things about Metabolife that people rave about are true (increased energy, loss of appetite, etc.) but I can't help but be concerned about the other factors such as heart rate. Can anyone who knows about the herbs in Metabolife clue us in to the risks--specifically the risks with people's hearts? I feel that is extremely important for the general public to know. Thank you very much to anyone willing to take the time to respond.
