Do herbal weight loss pills really work or are they just a waste of money? This is the question that is often asked by people looking perplexed in the herbal remedies section at Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods. They stand there looking like they are trying to solve the mathematical formula for an advanced physics word problem. Asking for help from the minimum wage clerks won’t exactly help either. Those guys not only do not know the answer but they are not allowed to tell you even if they did. There is a reason that the FDA won’t allow herbal remedies and pill manufacturers to put down what the pills purport to remedy. There is no scientific research on these herbal remedies and herbal weight loss pills are no exception.
Herbal weight loss pills are not the answer. At best all they will do is speed up your heart rate and make you sweat more at the gym. I don’t know about you but I have no problem sweating when I work out at the fitness center. And speeding up your heart rate can cause serious problems and even death if you have high blood pressure for example. A person who suffers from irregular heartbeat should definitely stay away from weight loss herbal pills unless their doctor clears them to take it.
Consulting your physician is definitely the best bet when mulling over whether or not to take not only weight loss herbal pills but any mysterious over the counter or prescription medicines. It only makes sense that the person who is most familiar with your present physical condition and health concerns should be the one to educate you on these alleged weight reduction pills.
My contention is that if these pills really worked like they claim to (although they are not allowed to make any claims whatsoever by the FDA) then believe me, we would all know about it and there would be a line a mile long of obese people in front of the GMC. So the simple answer is: No, weight loss herbal pills don’t work.
No weight loss herbal pills, magic recipe, exotic acupuncture, mysterious hypnotism or anything else will make a person lose weight. The only way a person can really lose weight is to exercise regularly and eat the right foods in moderate amounts. This sounds simple and it really is. Push yourself away from the table, cut out the sugars, fats and oil and go take a thirty to forty five minute walk each day and you will see results. And let me tell you, it will be a lot more satisfying to you to know that you did it without resorting to some hocus pocus or mumbo jumbo. And that is what weight loss herbal pills really are and we all know it. The only reason people wonder if weight loss herbal pills really work is because they are skeptical and for good reason.
So leave the herbal remedies aisle and instead head to the fresh fruit and vegetable aisle. Stock up your shopping cart and push it to the checkout lane. You will feel better and save money to boot.
