Diet pills confiscated by police, Medicine Control Council

Read the full story on Beeld’s webpage today.

What really interest me about the story, is the following.

In short, Simply Slim’s people apparently admitted to:

  •  not knowing the name of the factory in China where their pills are manufactured.
  • not having seen any clinical research proving the effectiveness and safety of their pills

Also (and why does this not shock me):

  • The accreditation code on their website (ISO 9002) has been OUT OF USE for a number of years.
  • There’s also a NQA-mark on their website referring to ISO9001, but NQA (SA) says they have NEVER certified the pills in SA.
  • Neither has the NQA in China.

The legal content of cybutramine in Reductil and other prescription drugs is between 10 and 15mg per tablet, which means that the 27mg found in Simply Slim and others are between 2 and 3 times that of the legal limit. ‘


The high doses of cybutramine has been tested in the trials for Reductil ten years ago. Weight loss DOES NOT increase with higher doses of cybutramine, but your risk for CARDIOVASCULAR complications  increases RADICALLY, according to Prof. Tessa van der Merwe, obecity expert and endocrynologist.

So, if you carry on with the use of these pills, you really need some other one’s too. For your head…
