(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The Ministry of Health (MoH) has announced that OxyElite, promoted online as a dietary supplement that helps in reducing weight, is not registered in the sultanate and its import and sale is banned.

An MoH statement said that the product has been proven ineffective and has no scientific research to back it up. Moreover, possible side effects include liver inflammation and even failure in some cases.

The US has recorded one death and several cases of hospitalisation, some involving liver transplant, by the use of the product, it stated.

The ministry added that pharmaceutical institutions are not allowed to import or circulate OxyElite.

However, the ministry has raised concerns regarding its possible circulation in the market.

The possibility of the product being illegally imported by individuals or commercial establishments in commercial shops, supermarkets or shops cannot be ruled out,' the release added.
