In light of recent reports of five deaths in Japan due to nutritional supplements, the Ministry of Health has issued a warning to the public not to use supplements produced by Kobayashi Pharmaceutical Company. The company’s headquarters in Osaka received thousands of complaints from consumers who experienced adverse health effects after taking the supplements. Symptoms reported included changes in urine color, swollen limbs, fatigue, and exhaustion, with some consumers developing kidney problems.

In addition to the recalled supplements, other products containing red rice yeast as an ingredient were also recalled. The Ministry of Health in Israel has stated that red rice yeast extract is not approved for use in dietary supplements in Israel. Importers of nutritional supplements must obtain approval from the National Food Service of the Ministry of Health, providing evidence of product safety and compliance with food legislation.

It is important for consumers to be cautious when choosing and consuming dietary supplements and to follow regulations and guidelines to ensure product safety and compliance. The use of unapproved or unsafe dietary supplements can have serious consequences on one’s health and well-being. It is always recommended to consult with a healthcare professional before taking any new dietary supplement or making significant changes to one’s diet or lifestyle.
