i was wondering if you have any information on Oxy Pro Elite? and what harm it can do to ur body?
ive taken this weight loss supplement and I want to continue to take it BUT after seeing what Hydroxycut had done to other people I'm scared that all tho its effective, it might have the same effects! Its fairly new to popularity so there isn't any one who is reporting the long term effects it might have/has on someones body. I know weight loss supplements are NOT recommended but Im willing to risk it, but if its as serious a problem as hydroxycut then i will NOT.
