The Ascot Diet is a weight loss program that has been discouraged by the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA).
According to a statement from the FDA, the Ascot Diet uses injections, appetite suppressants, and a diet plan to help people lose weight.
The Authority issued a warning that it has not registered the Ascot Diet Clinic-produced item.
“Due to the fast surge in minerals and nutrients, its use could induce serious allergic responses such itching, hives, shortness of breath, wheezing, swelling of the tongue, throat, or mouth, stomach cramps, nausea, diarrhoea, or faintness,” FDA said.
Since the safety, quality, and efficacy of unregistered pharmaceutical items cannot be guaranteed, the public has been cautioned to refrain from purchasing them.
The Public Health Act of 2012, Act 851, which contains Sections 99 and 118, states that the importation and sale of unregistered items are prohibited. Therefore, when caught, offenders would face harsh punishment, the statement noted.
Additionally, the organization has urged the general public to assist them by reporting the presence of any unregistered regulated products.
