For the past two weeks, I have started to take MetRx. A couple of my friends have brought up the fact that it contains aspartame which supposedly kills brain cells and has not been approved by the FDA. I take this mix twice a day and the difference I have noticed is that I am eating less. My concern is with the ingredient aspartame – do you have any opinions or suggestions about MetRx or aspartame or both? Thank you in advance.
Aspartame has been approved by the FDA for a number of years and is considered safe. It contains two amino acids phenylalanine and aspartic acid. There is no research to substantiate that it kills brain cells.
I am unfamiliar with MetRx. If you send the nutritional analysis and info as to why it is used, I can give you more feedback.
