Nollywood location manager allegedly killed by Chinese slimming tea

Asaba based Nollywood location manager Chinedu Epeagba (pictured above) died last week after a brief illness. Chinedu may have died from drinking too much Chinese slimming tea, if that possible.

According to Nollywood comic actor, Ugezu J. Ugezu, who posted on his Facebook page, a doctor who treated Chinedu said his death was as a result of complications triggered by slimming tea

 Ugezu said..
“Our preliminary investigation, backed with scientific presentations from the last doctor that treated him in Onitsha, shows that Dabebe died from complications triggered by the made in China slimming tea, which he started drinking in July. This tea, medicine or whatever, gradually destroyed all his internal organs and by the time he became too weak and got rushed to the hospital, his body couldn’t respond to treatment; organs were ruined already. The sad news is that Dabebe, that promising young man, is dead.”
Are there doctors in house who can tell us how Chinese slimming tea could have destroyed his organs and if there are harmful effects in taking such herbal teas.

Its not that the slimming tea literally killed him......its possible that some harmful contents may have caused issues with his liver or kidney, which r the two organs in charge of neutralizing some of these harmful contents. Acute injury to these organs can sometimes lead to death quite fast...

MzAnon said...

Well I'm nt a doc bt I used to tk those awhile back..little results and when u stop u add bk what weight you lost and even more. If it killed him? Don't knw, doubt it cuz the chinese drink their tea everyday and as we knw they are the most populous nation so if the tea kills it wld ve killd almst alla dem. He prolly was drinking a fake tea.
RIP dude

There are many kinds of Chinese slimming and weight loss teas. While green tea is
considered safe (although contains caffeine) for long term consumption, slimming and weight loss teas that contain stimulant laxative herbs like Senna, Mallow, Ginseng, Eleuthro Root and Licorice are very dangerous!!
Now, excessive intake of green tea also has some side effects associated with increase in the intake of caffeine which of course Is one of the constituents of green tea. As for slimming teas, senna, mallow, and so on mentioned above have adverse effects like increase in bowel movements, potential dehydration, increase In hunger, and so on.
It Is best to take a look at the ingredients of any weightloss tea and research those ingredients before purchase.

Lipton tea is solely made from raw green tea. Doctors, dietitian and even nutritionist recommend it for burning fat and slimming. You can even take it 2-3 times a day. Very reliable with consistent quality. Let's encourage our own product. As for exercising alone without eating healthy or watch what you do eat. It doesn't work that way but they go hand in hand. Pls post this.

Dr.Groove said...

Its quite unfortunate.Teas,chinese or whatever source are herbal preparations which contain extracts from roots and leaves of different plants.They could be effective in weight reduction but also harmful to vital organs.And may I add that most of these Chinese slimming products do not go through efficient laboratory testings,just like our local concoctions,they do not have doses,contraindications and warning about adverse effects.My advise to those who want to shed some weight:Exercise,eat healthy(avoid food with fats and high calorie content),sleep well.God bless you all.

I reserve my comment onthe cause of death tell the AUTOPSY report comes out. My professional advise "Anyone who likes to take slimming/supplements.
Liver function n EUC tests is a most do tests before and during slimming tea intake for ur safety, cos it tells u the state of ur liver n kidney and if the pills are harmful to ur body the will brin it ur notice. Some individuals due to the bad state of their organs wen the take simple mixture of herbs the have severe complications because they are not aware of their diseased liver e.g hepatitis,metastases,liver failure,kidney failure n immunocompromised/suppssed. Individual allergy or toxicity tolerance may differ.

If you want to lose weight, start exercising, go on portion control and don't even later than 7pm. Eat healthy, do more veggies and smoothies. Technically,raw Teas don't slim you down. They only tighten your stomach and that alone can harm your intestines.

TobiNigeria said...

Ok let me help you guys here. The problem with herbal products (in nigeria especially) is usually contamination with metals, pesticides or delibrate orthodox medicines. Its the build up of these toxic substances that cause organ related damages. Also, Nafdac would list most herbal products. Don't be fooled by the numbers these companies write on the pack of their products. It simply means there are recognised and the herbs they contain meet official standards; Further studies in view. So, beware. And just because one pharmacist-doctor- tells you its safe doesn't mean you shouldn't check with another pharmacist. And nigerians entrust illiterates and quacks with important decisions like "should I take this herbal product, is it good for me since I'm expecting a baby or as I'm diabetic and so on". As if we have nine lives!

its very possible because most of these herbal slimming tea acts as purgative and induces diarrhoea after use. so repeated or persistent passage of loose stools causes one to get dehydrated and eventually go into hypo-volumeic( reduce fluid volume in the body) shock and organ failure and death. so folks be careful of the use.

Am a Biochemist by profession.The liver is a very delicate organ in the body.. It detoxify the body of its toxicity.. Most of the roots they used in manufacturing these so called Chinese Tea are so very harmful,some contains dangerous phytochemicals such as Hydrocannabinol,Mosaic acid,Sinister dissaccharide,Acid soda,E27(Emulsifier), and lots more.They rupture the intestine and makes it susceptible to pathogenic infection.If u doubt my judgement,buy the tea......boil it down till its dark, take a little quantity and put it in a grease free slide.add Carbol fuschin, air dry and and wash in a slow running water..check the slide,u'd see a little sticky content,add acetone and place on top of *100 objective lens microscope, u'd be able the see the Gram positive bacterias that are harmful........ To cut the long story short,it kills.

The report stated ''TOO MUCH''. Chinese slimming herbs are safe, and you get them easily here in London, but just like any medication, you have to stay within the stipulated dose. If they are not safe, the British governemnt wont let them into the country. They have have subjected to rigorous laboratory test, and they confirm to standard. Even a simple drug like Panadol, taken in excess can kill. I read a report some years ago of a lady who committed suicide with an overdose of Panadol.
Maybe in a desperate bid to lose weight, he took too much.
