    1 death and 30 plus cases of liver damage and other illnesses in HI. I myself took this pills, but quit taken it a couple months before the news broke out about it. HI department of health pretty much force every store that carries it to take it off their shelfs.

    Not sure how other state will react to this. What do you guys think?

    funny thing though man, I myself never suffered any side effects like some that's being reported. And I stacked the pills with Jack3d before hitting the gym hahaha. but I'm no physician, so I'm not sure if I'm damage internally.

    The supplement industry to so bunk, I wouldn't be surprised this will happen with 99% of the shit out there. They can put anything they want in there and don't have to label accordingly......"proprietary blends" as vague as can be huh?

    Why not just drink a double espresso with some sugar in it.......same effect and all natural!

    ^^ same here, knock on wood though haha.

    From my point of view USP Labs shouldn't be at fault. Bottle clearly says "WARNING: Physician clearance before use" or "must be used with extreme caution" etc.

    Now if they did use deadly chemical as ingredients then that's another story.

    Versa-1 is a pre-workout kind of pill that supposed to boost your focus, definitely not a fat burner or "thermogenic". For what it's worth it did nothing for me, neither did Yok3d. USPlabs has expanded too fast in my opinion with a lot of their newer products not doing much. Pink Magic was the last big release that made waves and they suddenly pulled it off the shelves...


    Concur with comments about the supp. industry, in some cases it's like buying street drugs. You never know what you're getting when you ingest a "proprietary blend" but as was also stated it clearly says, "Consult physician before use" as the very first thing.

    The current oxyelite pro in the article should be the reformulated without the 1,3 dimethyl that raised a shit storm a few years ago with Jack3d and people dying from it. If you're comparing the original to this you're off the mark a little.

    I didn't try the new OEP but the old stuff was a kick in the ass. If you've tried the original Jack3d compared to the new Jack3d micro it's probably pretty similar I.E. not even close, but that's not the issue here.

    As far as USPlabs getting cheap, it was a matter of them not being able to sell their product most anywhere in the U.S. because it contained a substance, 1,3 dimethyl, that was being slandered all over the news like ephedra was in the early 2000s. It was a business move to reformulate 2 of their biggest sellers, plain and simple.
