Safety: In 2009, the maker of Hydroxycut recalled it after reports of seizure, rhabdomyolysis, and liver toxicity. The current formulation contains Alchemilla vulgaris (Lady's Mantle), Olea europaea (Wild Olive), Cuminum cyminum (Komijn), Mentha longifolia (Wild Mint). Although claims to be "Clinically proven" (2 studies sponsored by the co. showing weight loss), no unbiased results are available.
