Warning about potentially harmful products

We have just been made aware of products claiming to be like Plaquex or Phosphatidylcholine products  that may be harmful. First of all, their content of Deoxycholic acid in relation to the content of Phosphatidylcholine is too high. Second, it is unknown what type and concentration of Phosphatidylcholine was used. Third, the liquid in the vial is not a clear liquid. Infusing such product can be harmful. If the wrong PC is used and/or the DC content is too high, DC can dissociate from PC and in its unbound form, can cause scarring of veins, hemolysis and ultimately kidney and other problems because of hemolysis (dissolution of red blood cells). 

Here is a photo of such a vial that should NEVER be used:

Only use the original Plaquex product compounded by the FDA approved 503B outsourcing facility AnazaoHealth in the USA or compounded by Smith's pharmacy in Canada.
