Is this a side effect of zxt gold?

I have been using zxt gold for 2 weeks since starting it i have been spotting for 1 week of that time could the zxt gold mess up my periods or weeken my birth control beyaz??


Angela's Comments:

Hard to say. I would suggest stopping immediately and observing if the spotting stops. Take 10 days off of the ZXT and then resume. If the spotting starts again, you have your answer.

ZXT is not a bee pollen only product. It has several other ingredients in it including laxative herbs. One must be very careful with using it.

Is diarhea one of the side effects of ZXT?

by Jamilla
(Fayetteville,Nc)

Hello
I have been taking the zxt gold bee pollen capsules for about a week now. I'm experiencing bad diarhea and I need to know is that normal because it's kind of scary. It feels like that I have a virus or something.

Angela's Comments:

I would immediately stop taking the product. There have been many negative side effects listed on our forum about this product and yes, I would suspect the diarhea is a result of the ZXT. The only way to be completely sure is to stop it and see how you improve.

I would suggest you read some of the other ZXT comments here on the site as they are truly scary.

Bee healthy,
Angela

Painful cramps
by: Anonymous

I took ZXT for 4 days,It gave me alot of energy but I experienced painful stomach cramps the second day.By day 3 everytime I ate something it came out of me like water. 3-4 loose bowel movements that day.Day 4 I experienced such bad stomach cramps that I was afraid to eat.Had a bowel movement in the am,ate some cereal,came right thru me,and went again. After eating dinner that evening,I was extremely crampy,and again immeddiately ran to the bathroom w/ diarhhea,went 3 or for more times that night and began bleeding from all that pooping. I stopped on day 5 but am now experiencing painful hemmorrhoids,and got on the scale and I gained 4 pounds.All that pain for NOTHING.Some of my friends swear by it,but if your prone to hemmrhoids than LOOKOUT,so not worth it.

Bee Pollen Side Effect - Zi Xiu Tang

by Jill
(Pennsylvania, USA )

I am writing this question to you because of the hype with bee pollen. I know many people who have taken bee pollen to lose weight. However, they are taking the Zi Xiu Tang capsules that are from China! Many of the people taking this capsule experience laxative effects. Why is this? Would I experience this from taking local bee pollen? I was looking for something to help me lose weight and for my overall health (I have terrible skin!) However, I do not want the side effect of a laxative. Any information would be amazing! It's nice to find a website like yours that relays true information about bee pollen! Thanks!

Sincerely,

Jill

Hi Jill,
Great question. Yes, we get a lot of questions about this bee pollen product. The truth is that it is not actually a bee pollen product. It contain several other ingredients, one of which is causing the laxative effect. It contains some type of fiber in it, but the website doesn't say what the source is. So, if people are experiencing weight loss on this product, chances are it is partly or fully because of the laxative effect. You will not experience a laxative effect from taking local bee pollen or at least it is highly unlikely that you would. I'm highly skeptical of this Zi Xiu Tang product. In fact, I can't believe they are still in business with the claims that they are making on their site. I'm surprised the FDA has not shut them down yet. Anyways, hope that helps!

works, but has side effects
by: Anonymous

I took the Zi Xiu Tang Bee Pollen Capsules for one month. I lost 18 pounds. It is a great appetite suppressant and gave me energy. I didn't get my usual midday slump where I needed to take naps. This could, of course, be because I wasn't eating all the junk food I used to eat. I also did not get the laxative effect others have mentioned. Now for the down side - extremely dry mouth. Had to constantly suck on hard candy. Drank a ton of water and that didn't even help. Sometimes felt like I couldn't get a good breath, like my throat was closing off. My menstrual cycle is usually very light , lasting 4-5 days. This month it was moderately heavy and has been going on for 2 weeks now. (I quit the bee pollen capsules a week ago.) Since stopping the bee pollen capsules, I haven't been able to have a bowel movement. I suppose my body became dependent on the effects of the pills, even though my bowel habits didn't change while I was taking them. And unfortuantely, with the holidays here, and me not taking the pills, I'm back to eating junk again. I've put back on 3 pounds.

constant burping
by: annie

Started taking zi xiu tang bee pollen 3 weeks ago. After 3 weeks lost 11 lbs...but constant neck pain and burping have caused me to stop taking. I am normally a very healthy person but the constant feeling of something being stuck in my throat was overbearing. Do not believe that any thing works better that eating right and exercise. This gave me a little jump start but the side effects outweigh the benefits.

Sibutramine
by: Anonymous

I recently got this product and found it says on it "Contains no Sibutramine" which is a drug that is not FDA approved and has negative side effects. I read the recall for this product that says that certain lots (not any of the ones I have) contain this drug. I'm confused. Does the recall mean that the drug is in this product and I'm being lied to or did I happen to get lots where the drug has been removed?


You'd need to contact the company that sold you the product as we don't sell this product and don't recommend it.

FDA Warning!!! Hidden Drug in Zi Xiu Tang!!!
by: Anonymous

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that “Zi Xiu Tang Bee Pollen Capsules” contains sibutramine. Sibutramine is a controlled substance that was removed from the market in October 2010 for safety reasons. The product poses a threat to consumers because sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, or stroke. This product may also interact, in life-threatening ways, with other medications a consumer may be taking.

take only 1 a day if you're too thirsty
by: Anonymous

I was also soooo thirsty, however that was the only side affect. I have been on it for one month and lost 10 lbs (went from 145 to 135 and I'm 5'4). I am so excited because I am finally in a size 8 and feel so good. I was too thirsty so I decided to only take one in the morning. I am still not hungry, but I am not dying of thirst any more....and the pills last longer. I have to take it in the morning or else I can't sleep that night. It is a great product, but it may not be for everyone. :)

Feels like your on adderal.... Person
by: Juliet

Hi... To The person who made the comment that she goes to the bathroom more than 15 times a day....can you please let me know what site or from whom you get your zi xiu tang pills from? I am looking for something like that.... Thanks

Feels like you're on Adderall
by: Anonymous

I am 21 years old, not over weight but slightly larger for my height (5'2, 135 lbs) I am a big craver, always wanting to eat bad things. I over eat and stuff myself to the point that I get so bloated and sick. I hate dieting, and have never been able to stick with a workout regimen. The bee pollen pills completely stopped the cravings. Even when I feel hungry, there is nothing that I want to eat so I just don't. I'm eating about 1 meal a day.

I have been taking the bee pollen pills for 5 days now. In those 5 days, I have had a dry mouth that feels impossible to get rid of. On day 3, I started having the bathroom issues (going at least 15 times a day) but it is getting better now. The bee pollen pills make me unable to sleep, and in a daze-like state. I have been awake for 29 hours straight and still do not feel tired.

As a college student, I have taken Adderall before a big final and the bee pollen is very similar to the way you would feel on adderall. I have energy, but am able to focus my energy on specific tasks. I completely forget to eat and can not sleep.

I don't think this product works for me since I am having such unhealthy side effects, but I will continue to use it for another week to see if there are any changes.

Stopped taking it!
by: Anonymous

I had to stop taking this after almost finishing one complete bottle. I noticed no weight loss, but my energy level was thru the roof! I slept great & felt amazing until......I started having a extremely painfull headache that would not go away at all. I felt very unbalaced and dizzy. Unbarable pain ran accross my neck & shoulders. I don't call off sick from work, but I did for 2 days. Finally I went to the Dr's. The suggestion was to stop taking the zi xiu tang bee pollen! It is knows to cause heart attach symptoms in women or even an actually attack. Didn't have to tell me twice! I am now back to myself!

Harmful Side Effects
by: Anonymous

Before starting this product I had normal blood pressure and heart rate. After three weeks, my heart rate averaged 95-110. After the fourth week I began to constantly be hot and my face was always red. I took my blood pressure and it was 168/112 with a heart rate of 115. I am only 30 years old with no prior health issues. It has been a month since I have stopped this product and I am slowly returning back to normal. I want to warn the public that though they list the ingredients, you cannot be certain they are listing everything. Be careful--check your vital signs!

by: Anonymous

Before starting the bee pollen, my blood pressure was almost perfect and my heart rate was between 87 and 92. After a month of taking, i have lost 15 pounds, but my blood pressure is slightly raised and my heart rate is between 105 and 110. Has anyone else experienced anything like this??

Zi Xiu Tang I dangerous
by: Mel

I took the Zi Xiu Tang for a month. I did not lose any weight with it, however I do know several people who have. I am pretty small anyway but the only reason that I started taking it was because I was quitting smoking and I wanted something to help curb my appetite during the process. Which it did help that and I have been smoke free for 42 days and doing great with no weight gain. I started taking the zxt gold 4 days before I layed down my cigarettes. It was great at first. Lots of energy and felt like I could tackle the world. I did have a little bit of a laxative effect on me and also I had a very hard time sleeping at night. That all went away in about a week. At this point, I started becoming very depressed and angry. I just wanted to lay and cry. Of course I thought it was just the effects of not smoking, but I wasn't even craving or wanting a cigarette. This went on and even got worse. I was screaming and yelling at my kids or whoever got in my path. I mean terrible rage. Then I would go cry. I knew what was happening, but I could not control it. I really wanted to die. Still thinking that it was from not smoking, I started doing some research. I knew that the only thing that I was doing differently, other than not smoking, was taking the zxt gold. I did some research on the bad side effects of the zxt and there were several others with the same side effects. In a way, I was relieved to hear this because I thought that I was really going insane. I stopped the zxt immediately ( I had just stared my 2nd bottle). After 2 days of not taking it, I am back to normal. No more anger or depression. I have no idea what is in that stuff to cause such an effect, but of course, the company don't tell you that. Tells you some of the ingredients but not all and does not even tell you the amounts of the stuff that they do tell you is in there. Kinda strange if you ask me. What exactly are they trying to hide? Anyway, this is very scary stuff. I am glad it is working for some people out there, but just be careful. For some reason this company does not want us to know what is in this stuff and I would say before long it will all come out with all kinds of legal battles attached to it. Just be careful.

Save your money!
by: Anonymous

I was convinced by a friend to try this product. No more peer pressure! It has a horrible laxative effect and if you happen to have stomach ulcers you may experience additional side effects. Twelve days of this because I thought I had a virus of some sort with lost work days things were so bad. No increase in energy and even with a diet there was no significant weight loss. Save your money.

Zxt bee pollen NOT gold - trouble sleeping

by Dakota
(Ohio US)

I took the zxt bee pollen for 3 days took the two pills in the morning by 9 am I already drink a lot of water so having to drink plenty of water was no problem. I only problem to why I stopped taking them was I could not sleep at night I would maybe get 10 minutes at a time or total. I would toss and turn and be awake all night. Anyone know why? A friend told me to maybe try to take the pills at night before bed. Any thoughts? I did loose 5 lbs in 72 hours so is like to continue them but the not being able to sleep bothers me. My boyfriend said it seemed like it was getting better a little night by night but still I was miserable. Any thoughts help.

Angela's Comments:

The ZXT Bee Pollen product has green tea in it which contains natural caffeine. This would be why you are having trouble sleeping.

zxt gold pills - bad reaction?

by von
(florida)

I recently started taking zxt gold pills. I started out taking 2 capsules in the morning with water as the directions says. I recently started feeling like my heart would be racing at times. I went to the er but the test came back fine. I was wondering do you think that is a normal reaction to the pill since it is suppose to speed up your metabolism. I haven't taken the pills since, but I did lose 8 pounds in the first week so I was considering maybe starting back with one a day. I would like to know your opinion on this.

Angela's Comments:

Hi Von,
Some of the ZXT products have Green Tea in them which would likely have caffeine in it (I'm assuming they are not using decaffeinated green tea). So it is likely this that is causing your heart palpitations. You could also be reacting to one of the other ingredients in the product. ZXT uses several other ingredients in their products including Chinese Yams, Lotus Seeds and Bee Pollen. So it is entirely possible that you are having some sort of reaction to any one of these products.

Bee healthy,
Angela

Bee Pollen Reaction
by: Anonymous

Hello,

I have been using the ZXT Gold, two pills a day. Initially, I took the pills as directed with water and felt the warm, tingling to my face, and dizzy. Then I went a different route and started eating something first, then right after my meal breakfast or lunch took the two pills with water and I never had those symptoms again. I went from 126 to 114. So my advice, although it states take with or without food, please take with FOOD! Hope this helps.

Child care
by: Jeanne

I started taking ZXT Gold about 30 days ago. I started at a weight of 179. I now am at 154. But it isn't the weight that I am impressed with as much as the size of my waist and hips. I am thankful there have been no side effects. I do suffer from occasional vetigo but have had no symtoms while taking ZXT Gold. I discovered this product when one of my clients came in and seemed to be losing her weight and an impressive amount of time. She told me what she was doing and I was not totally convinced but tried it. I am 60 yrs. old and fight obesity constantly. My BMI is now in the normal range for the first time in years.The one thing I liked about the product is that it clearly tells you not to change you eating habits now.You will not lose by going totaly healthy.To be honest I didn't eat badley. I love my vegtables and working with and feeding children I meet all thier needs in nutrition.

Bad Reaction
by: Anonymous

I took zxt gold for 1 week. Although I did lose 5 pounds, around day 5 I felt a strange pressure in my face and head along with tingling in the cheeks. I had a hard time focusing and felt a bit dizzy. Thinking it was my imagination, I continued to take it for 3 more days until the symptoms became too much to handle. Decided to have my blood pressure checked and it was 168/90 as compared to my normal 122/75. WOW. Scary, I was told to immediatley quit the zxt and within 2 days I am feeling normal. I am dissappointed that I had this reaction because of the weight loss results, but it inspired me to do it the correct way. Healthy diet and exercise.

heart palpitations
by: Anonymous

I too am now experiencing tremors, A-Fib, heart palpitations, arrhythmia, and racing heart rate. I also had an episode similar to a stroke (unable to walk in a straight line, crashing into walls, falling face first onto the floor etc... because I was unable to keep my balance ... I went to my physician ... no inner ear or diabetic issues) ... all of these side effects occurred after starting ZXT Gold. I have been off of ZXT for a week now and my episodes have been decreasing so I truly believe it is the ZXT.

Swollen legs from ZXT Gold?

My legs are swelling and fingers and I had high blood pressure. Is the zxt gold bee pollen causing this?


Angela's Comments:

Did these symptoms arise after beginning taking the ZXT? Did you stop taking it and did the symptoms dissappear?

We have heard about some disturbing side effects from the ZXT but never swelling. But it is possible that you are having a reaction to it.

Bee pollen side effect - weight loss, head ache?

I am 17 years old and started taking bee pollen may 24th and I was around 151 pounds. The first week and a half I felt completely different.. I felt like I was losing weight and i had no appetite! even though I had a really dry mouth and diarrhea. But now it is june 14th, which will be my 3rd week into this and I feel tired, with headaches, and I weigh 141. I have lost 10 pounds but I lost those 10 pounds more then a week ago. I feel like maybe it stopped working? I take 2 pills a day as soon as I wake up. I drink lots of water and I'm active. Am I doing something wrong? Or is everything working out fine and I just need to wait for results?

Angela's comments:

I recommend you stop taking the bee pollen immediately. It sounds like you are reacting to bee pollen quite severely. If after discontinuing the bee pollen your weight doesn't return, I suggest you see your doctor.

Bee healthy,

My zi xiu tang experience and colitis


So if you're searching this you're probably thinking about trying it. Let me just tell you my experience. First I should say that I have ulcerative colitis. I'm planning to go on vacation next month and wanted to loose some weight. A few people I know have taken it and lost weight fast! Today is my 5th day and I take 1 capsule every morning at 7:15. I was nervous starting it because I know it causes diareah and that's not good for someone with UC. But I was desperate and couldn't wait to loose some weight. I started Sunday and I felt fine, Monday I had no bowel movements at all and was very excited! Tuesday I had 6 very loose bowels and had no appetite. I couldn't eat more than 1 hard boiled egg. That whole day I only ate 1 egg, a half of a yogurt, some m&m's ( which I instantly paid for in the bathroom) and a few sips of a protein shake. Wednesday I had 8 bowels and a few with urgency! I knew I was not eating enough and I felt dizzy and weak. My stomach felt so empty but I felt like all food was disgusting. But I was happy to see already I had lost 4 lbs! I ate an egg and crackers with cheese that day. Already feeling tired and sluggish. I couldn't force myself to eat. Idk what it is in these pills but I had no desire to eat and no appetite at all! I had stomach pain during my bowel movements and overall felt very weak and tired all day. I was very nervous that I was loosing all of my electrolytes and I knew I needed to eat protein. I drank a cup of Gatorade and couldn't eat dinner. Felt sick and went to bed early.
Thursday (today) I woke up through the night and had to run to the bathroom, when I woke up at 7 I had bad stomach pains on the toilet for 20 minutes. I couldn't get ready for work and the next time I went there was blood in my stool. Not to mention since yesterday I've been using desitin because I was sore from going so often. I called out of work and did not take my single pill of bee pollen today. I was able to drink a cup of Gatorade but I haven't eaten yet today. My most recent bowel movement was 45 minutes ago and there was more blood. I felt so dizzy like I was going to pass out. I didn't take a shower yet because I'm scared I will. I just weighed mysef and now im down 10 lbs! I'm going to try and eat something now.

If you have colitis, ulcerative colitis or chrones disease take my advice and DON'T take zi xiu tang!!
I would rather be 10 lbs heavier than to feel this way!!

Can I take ZXT bee pollen capsules again after getting hives?

by Kim
(Ohio)

I increased my dosage to quickly taking ZXT capsules and got hives, can I take them again if I introduce them slowly by breaking a capsule open and taking a few granules at a time and building up? I have lost 28 lbs in about 4 months and they help to curb my cravings for salt and sugar.

Angela's comments:

Hi Kim,
Great question. First off, I can't legally medically advise you. So as always, I recommend you work with your doctor, pharmacist or a Naturopathic Doctor to ensure you remain safe. If you do decide to try using the ZXT Bee Pollen capsules again, be sure to do as you've described - open up a capsule and ingest 1/4 or less of the capsule. If you encounter no symptoms, I recommend that you stay at this dose for at least a week before increasing it by another 1/4 capsule. At any time if you have any type of allergic reaction or symptom, obviously stop immediately and see a doctor or pharmacist. Continue to increase your dose slowly like this until you get to the recommended working dose.

Hope that helps,
Angela
