OxyElite is a dietary supplement designed to help individuals burn fat and lose weight by increasing metabolism and energy levels while also suppressing appetite, according to product info on Amazon.com. OxyElite comes in several forms, including pills, protein powder and nutrition bars.
Though many patients claim to have lost weight through OxyElite, there are concerns about its safety. In 2013, OxyElite Pro -the capsule form of the supplement- was recalled after more than 50 cases of liver damage were linked to using the product, including 47 hospitalizations, three needed liver transplants and one death, claims the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. As of 2015, OxyElite Pro is still under recall, and patients that believe they were affected can file suit, says The Schmidt Firm.
