Like a lot of people, I’m frequently tempted by the idea of popping a pill into my mouth and having all of that unwanted fat on my hips magically melt away like snow on a hot, sunny afternoon.
However, I’m a bit of a skeptic, and I like to know what manufacturer’s are putting into these top weight loss supplements.
If you’re the arguing type, you might ask: “How are the ingredients in diet pills any worse than all that grease and sugar Americans consume on a daily basis?”
I have to admit that I haven’t heard too many stories recently, warning the public about additives like Aspartame – a key ingredient in many brands of soft drinks.
Weight loss supplements get the lion’s share of attention, not so much for some of the outlandish claims made by manufacturers, but for what a lot of advertiser’s conveniently leave out of those television ads. You still have to eat healthy and exercise!
Sorry folks, there is no diet supplement that will allow you to sit on the couch and eat all the ice cream and potato chips your heart desires. I feel your pain!
Weight loss drugs and supplements can help individuals loose weight, but be aware that most of them come with side-effects.
Ingredients In Top Weight Loss Supplements – What You Should Know?
Most weight loss drugs suppress your appetite at it’s source: your brain. Many of these synthetic drugs contain amphetamines (in popular lingo we call it “speed”) in prescription form. They can be effective in curbing your appetite, but take heed – they’re highly addictive!
Phentermine received approval as an appetite suppressant from the FDA way back in 1959. It is prescribed to patients with serious medical issues caused by obesity. There are some nasty side-effects such as increased heart rate and blood pressure. It is also addictive.
After the Fen-Phen controversy in 2004, popular weight-loss supplements containing both fenfluramine and phentermine were taken off of the market.
Phentemine375 is one of those top weight loss supplements that are trying to capitalize on the this once popular ingredient. However, despite the product’s name it does not contain phentermine. (Notice the difference in spelling?)
Another highly effective weight loss drug is Bontril. It is more addictive than phentermine and was taken off of the market and listed as a controlled substance. It can only be prescribed by your physician.
Some of the nasty side-effects of this drug include anxiety, fatigue, insomnia and depression.
Who hasn’t heard of Hoodia? But how many of you actually know what it is? Hoodia is a succulent plant from Africa and it’s active ingredient, P57, may suppress your appetite. It is a natural alternative to synthetic supplements. The jury is still out on whether or not top weight loss supplements like UniqueHoodia actually work.
The bottom line when it comes to finding the best weight loss supplements is to start with your doctor. What does he think is the best solution for your weight problem? What does he think about a particular supplement like Phen375?
