Local celebrities are back at it again, this time defending a supplement that is supposed to increase one’s ability to grow taller. Two Malaysian actresses that have previously been in the spotlight for recent controversies have popped up in this conversation that’s currently going viral.

It all started when a picture of Neelofa posing with the brand went viral and netizens got mad that an artiste would promote “dangerous” supplements like this to their audience. Elfira Loy, another young actress, then jumped into the conversation and claimed that everyone should not act “so smart”. In fact, she said that she had even tried the product and it worked for her… for awhile.

Netizens started pointing out that the petite artiste looked the same (in height), with or without using the product. With netizens slamming her, she tweeted out how the supplements work. Take a look and see if you’re convinced…

Obviously this issue caught the eyes of Twitter-famous doctors like Dr Beni Rusaini, Dr Amalina, and Dr Saz One. Their opinions are mostly the same, stating that this product is illogical from a medical perspective.

Of course it does not end there. Elfira shot back at Dr Beni Rusaini’s statement and continued to defend the pill supplement.

Like Dr Amalina said, it’s important to be careful of promoting things like this especially if you have a large audience. Whatever it is, don’t be greedy when it comes to “ubat” that can risk other people’s lives.
