Personally I've had no probs whatsoever w/UA...
Jan 5, 2004, I had to have a liver transplant due to usnic acid. Both my husband and I had been taking "UCP-1" put out by: BBC Nutrition. Both of us received liver damage due to the product My husband and I are PTs ourselfs and our very careful when it comes to supplements. My husband checked out the product and info on Usnic Acid and we believed that we would be fine . . . if we followed the recommended use and didn't do anything stupid with it. We have taken ECA stack for years and had no problems. We have been careful and "wise" about what we take. Well .. . this time I guess we weren't so "wise". My liver collapsed within a month, my husband - had no idea he had liver problems til he went in for bloodwork for a totally different reason. His liver has regenerated itself and is healing. I had to have a full liver transplant. The last 2 days before my transplant, they didn't know if I was going to make it because I was going quick and I needed a liver quick. Livers don't just happen and they knew the chances of me getting a match quickly were slim. Jan. 8th I was put at the top of the transplant list - with in 2 hours, I had a match. I THANK GOD - TOTALLY- for being there and taking care of me and making sure I was in the right place at the right time to receive a match. Just 6 days prior I was overseas in a place where I would not have been so blessed!
If you would like to know more details about why my liver collapsed - please email me.
Just know . . . USNIC started my damage and my husbands - it was silent - we had no idea! So . . . please . . . please - get a doctors ok before you use usnic. Usnic worked great - I had excellent fat loss - didn't touch my muscle - but the side effects are not worth it! DO NOT just go by info from the internet - go get yourself checked and make sure this product is ok for YOU. If you have been taking it . .. I suggest you get your liver checked.
