The Ministry of Health warns: these are the weight loss pills that are sold in Israel and endanger lives

The Ministry of Health issued a warning to the public today (Monday) against slimming pills called “Magic Plus” and “Black Coffee Diet” powder, which contain ecstasy and other prohibited substances. The ministry emphasized that these products are sold illegally, and may endanger public health immediately. Last week, a patient was hospitalized after taking these two products.

As mentioned, from laboratory tests it was found that the pills contained the dangerous illegal drug ecstasy (MDMA) which is used as a stimulant and the active substance sibutramine, a substance banned for use and marketing due to cardiac side effects and psychotic side effects. In the product “Black Coffee Diet” sold as a slimming powder, laboratory tests found that the product contained the dangerous illegal drug ecstasy (MDMA) and the active ingredient sibutramine. The office went on to emphasize that “use of these products immediately endangers life and should be avoided.”
