Can I take Zi Xiu Tang Bee Pollen while nursing?

Dr. D.J. :

The views expressed by me are for educational purposes only and do not establish a doctor patient relationship.

Dr. D.J. :

Hi there,


This is Dr. D.J., experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.


I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Dr. D.J. :

Zi Xiu Tang bee pollen has been touted as a weight loss supplement.

Dr. D.J. :

However this supplement is found to contain a prescription medication called sibutramine.

Dr. D.J. :

Sibutramine is mixed in powder form illegally.

Dr. D.J. :

Sibutramine was banned few yrs ago as it was shown to cause high blood pressure and heart rate resulting in heart problems.

Dr. D.J. :

Hence, this should not be used let alone during nursing.

Dr. D.J. :

Please stay away from this product as there is no 'natural' ness in this supplement and not proven to work in scientific studies.

Customer: Ok thank you
