Harmful Undeclared Steroids Present in Healthy Life Dietary Supplements: FDA
According to an FDA Warning issued July 26, 2013, Healthy Life Chemistry By Purity First B-50 contains methasterone and dimethazine, two potentially dangerous anabolic steroids that are not listed on the product’s labeling. At the time of the warning, FDA was aware of at least 29 adverse incidences associated with Purity First B-50. Women who took the supplement reported abnormal hair growth and missed menstrual cycles, and male users reported impotence and low testosterone (“Low T”). Several patients have required emergency hospitalization as a result of their injuries.
“Products marketed as a vitamin but which contain undisclosed steroids pose a real danger to consumers and are illegal,” said Howard Sklamberg, director of the Office of Compliance in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. “The FDA is committed to ensuring that products marketed as vitamins and dietary supplements do not pose harm to consumers.”
Purity First B-50 Side Effects
The anabolic steroids contained in Healthy Life Dietary Supplements may cause the following serious side effects in certain users:
- Testicle shrinkage
- Infertility in males
- Breast enlargement
- Masculinization of women (abnormal hair growth, missed menstruation)
- Short stature in children
- Acute liver injury
- Kidney failure
- Heart attack
- Adverse effects on blood lipid levels

Because methasterone and dimethazine are controlled substances which are not listed on the labeling of Healthy Life Chemistry By Purity First B-50, this product is illegal and should not be sold as a dietary supplement. Purity First B-50 is made by Mira Health Products Ltd., and is available in retail stores and on the Internet. To date, the company has refused to voluntarily recall the product or warn consumers about the potential health risks associated with it. Supplement users who are experiencing any unusual symptoms should contact their doctor immediately and report their experience to the FDA.
