If you use Mayhem by Chaotic Labz, you could be getting much more than you bargained for!
Thank You, Chaotic Labz!
After having written about so many supplement scandals it feels like the world is just not right when a week goes by without some stuff making the headlines.
I therefore thank Chaotic Labz for letting me rest at ease.
The FDA tested their workout supplement “Mayhem” and found it comes with two undeclared ingredients: dexamethasone and cyproheptadine.
Ever Heard Of Dexamethasone And Cyproheptadine?
When a company tells you it uses only the “finest and most expensive raw materials,” you should remember that plutonium too is a very expensive raw material.
Dexamethasone is a corticosteroid that can hinder a person’s ability to fight infections, raise blood sugar levels, cause muscle injuries or put you into the psychiatric ward most convenient to you. Corticosteroids can also suppress the adrenal gland and lead to severe withdrawal symptoms when you cut off the supply.
Cyproheptadine is a first generation antihistamine, whose dosing you better carefully monitor. Which is hard to do when it’s not declared on the ingredient list. Among others, it can cause drowsiness and you may find yourself in the path of an 18-wheeler on the way home from the gym.
Chaotic Labz And Antihistamines
To be honest, I wasn’t familiar with Chaotic Labz. But after a little background research it seems they’re no strangers to putting cyproheptadine into their products. About another of theirs, “BMF Salvation,” an Amazon user writes:
BMF Salvation has been shown to be spiked with cyproheptadine hydrochloride, a prescription appetite stimulant. The reasons I don’t trust anything coming out of Chaotic Labz is because the ingredients lists on all their products is shrouded in mystery. No dosages are declared and they are often listed in confusing fashions to mask spiking.
The information probably comes from this blog and I can’t vouch for it, but it points in the same direction.
Don’t Go Cold Turkey!
You better don’t go cold turkey on Mayhem. Instead, inquire with you doctor how to safely quit the stuff.
As I said above, if you accustomed your body to corticosteroids, sudden withdrawal can cause lots of mayhem. Perhaps that’s where the product got its name from.
