Sep 01, 2018

Weight loss and nutritional supplements

01

When you want to lose weight, you may try your best to find various ways. If you want to use herbal supplements, please bear in mind that the results of research on its efficacy are mixed. In some cases, there is little evidence of efficacy, and some supplements may have health risks. Consult a doctor before taking medication.

02

In addition, you should know that the Food and Drug Administration has banned the sale of diet supplements because they do not label them as containing prescription drugs, making it impossible to distinguish the ingredients of supplements.

03

Although the Food and Drug Administration has strictly monitored dietary supplements, it has always regarded them as food rather than medicines.  Unlike drug manufacturers, they do not need to prove the safety and effectiveness of their products before they can be sold.

Chitosan and chromium pyridine carboxylate

01

Guar gum

It belongs to the seeds of guar. Like other dietary fiber, it can reduce body absorption of fat and maintain satiety.

02

Guar gum has been studied more than other fiber foods, and most researchers say it can't lose weight.

03

The "natural medicine" agency also believes that guar gum may be invalid.

04

Side effects may include: flatulence in the body; diarrhea.

05

Hoodia

This is a plant growing in the Kalahari desert, Africa. The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine says the Buxumans have been using their roots since ancient times to relieve hunger and thirst during long hunts. Now, butterfly cactus is used as an appetite suppressant for sale.

06

Cactus contains P57, which can make people feel satiety for a long time. But there is no reliable evidence to prove that it is safe and effective. At present, there is no evidence to prove that butterfly can lose weight.

Ketone dehydroepiandroid and ephedra

01

Ketone dehydrogenase

The human body naturally contains ketone dehydroepiandrosterone. It can promote metabolism and speed up the burning of calories during the day to lose weight.

02

Studies have shown that keto-dehydroepiandrosterone, moderate exercise, and reduced calories in the diet are more effective than placebos in weight loss. But the "natural medicine" agency says there is not enough reliable evidence to prove its effectiveness.

03

But it seems safe. There were no serious side effects after taking ketone dehydroepiandrosterone for 28 days.

04

Ephedra

This is a kind of herbal medicine, also known as equine. Unlike the same species found in the northern United States, ephedrine contains the following stimulants: ephedrine; pseudoephedrine;

05

However, the food and drug administration has not banned the sale of traditional Chinese herbal medicines or products such as herbal tea.

06

The Food and Drug Administration says there is little evidence that the drug contributes to short-term weight loss and that the risks outweigh the benefits.  "Natural medicine" thinks ephedra "may not be safe".

Bitter orange

01

Bitter oranges are native to Africa and tropical Asia; they are also found in the Mediterranean, California and Florida.

02

Bitter orange peel contains Xin Fu Lin (similar to ephedrine stimulants). It is said that it can increase the amount of calories burned and lose weight.

03

After the Food and Drug Administration banned the sale of ephedra-containing weight loss products, many manufacturers began selling bitter oranges, but their safety was unknown.

04

Bitter orange may not be safe. At the same time, there is not enough evidence to prove that it can lose weight.

05

Some studies have shown that bitter orange supplements can increase blood pressure and heart rate. Bitter orange supplements have been reported to have dangerous side effects, both alone or with other stimulants and with caffeine. Risks include:

06

Apoplexy;

07

Arrhythmia;

08

Heart attack;

09

Death.

Ten

The US Food and drug administration believes that using bitter orange as a dietary supplement may not be safe. If you have heart disease or high blood pressure, try to avoid using bitter orange nutrition.

Eleven

Avoid bitter orange nutrients if you are taking caffeine, drugs (such as enzyme inhibitors), or drugs or other supplements that increase your heart rate.
