Weight Loss Pills is the popular buzzword these days – everyone is trying to lose some weight or the other, or at least keep the weight off for a longer period of time. There are many Weight Loss Programs and Weight Loss Foods which can be bought over the counter or with a prescription, but how much weight does one person really need to lose and what is the best way to go about it? This article looks into whether Weight Loss Drinks can be used in conjunction with Weight Loss Programs and also tries to explain what Weight Loss Pills is.
Alli (orlistat) Caffeine: This is the active ingredient in the most popular weight loss pills. Orlistat also comes as a controlled prescription medication and is widely available over the counter. It works by blocking the body’s ability to breakdown any of the excess fat that we eat. A number of studies conducted on animals indicated that orlistat may increase the metabolic rate by a modest amount.
Hoodia: Hoodia is a natural herb that has only been discovered recently. In fact, in its natural state, it is a cactus-like plant. Many of its ingredients have not been identified, however, it is believed to increase the body’s metabolism and may help burn some of the excess calories. However, there are concerns that hoodia increases the appetite and that it may cause diabetes. As with any weight loss pills, additional studies are needed to confirm these findings.
