Do Weight Loss Pills really work for you?

The appeal of loosing weight quickly by using weight loss pills has caught the imagination of millions of health conscious people.

Using such pills is very hard ignoring, as some of them are known to help you in reducing your weight within a short span of time.

Weight loss pills or herbal supplements are the buzzwords of the day and people flock to buy such weight loss aids with an alarming intensity!

However, there is fierce debate raging among the scientific community about the efficacy of using these pills. Weight loss experts wonder as to whether such pills really work in practice.

Are these really safe for your body? Do they form a safe option of losing your weight? Here is a brief look at some of the types of weight loss pills, their advantages and disadvantages:

Most popular weight loss pills are essentially herbal and natural in nature and composition.

These herbal pills are made by combining several natural ingredients in different quantities. A number of them are readily available in your favorite super store, while some of them are up for sale online on sales portals as well.

Most of these pills are yet to be clinically tested and proved comprehensively for safety standards.

A well known example is perhaps the herb, Bitter Orange, which is known to suppress your appetite, so that you don’t feel hungry to eat your food.

On the other hand, pills made out of a substance called Chitosan, is known to block absorption of dietary fat into your body, which may prove quite dangerous under high dosages.

Country Mallow is yet another herbal substance that is supplied in the form of weight loss pills.

Ephedra and Guar Gum are also known to possess some properties, that control your appetite and block dietary fat metabolism.
 
How these pills interact and work individually and collectively with your body system, is still unknown and it needs further advanced research.

Using these pills could be a risky venture, especially if you’re taking other synthetic medications, or if you’ve been suffering from one of those terminal diseases. Keep in your mind that even if you’re currently ingesting these weight loss pills, you still have to consume and use some amount of calories, that your body actually uses, just in order to lose weight.

If you’ve have been taking these pills, you’ll need to be on your guard to avoid many unforeseen adverse side effects.

Neither are these pills are clinically tested and proven for safe use nor are their chemical structure conducive for human consumption.

A majority of these weight loss pills are a combination of more than ten substances, whose real effects are yet to be tested.

Furthermore, they tend to drastically suppress your appetite, so that the energy reserve of your body system is made to deplete after sometime.

This rapid depletion of body energy may create severe imbalances in your body system’s ability to carry on with normal metabolic processes.
