      The Best & Worst Weight Loss Drugs – PART VI

      Chromium

      Chromium is an essential trace mineral and has been much spoken about as a dietary supplement. This claims to reduce carb cravings, reduce fat body mass and improve lean body mass. It is also believed to decrease appetite and promote weight loss. This is quite safe to take but their weight loss claims have not been proved.

      Green Tea

      Green Tea is one of those products that has received much hype but does it really work? This is rich in catechins and antioxidants which are good for the whole body. Research has shown that it can indeed help reduce belly fat. Try to sip green tea before a workout, the compounds present in it will also help you increase your fat burn during aerobic exercise. Consumed moderately, this is quite safe. You don’t have to really take a lot of it. Just about 2.5 cups a day should work.

      Hoodia

      Hoodia is a supplement that comes in liquid, powder, tablet and capsule form. This is a flowering, cactus-like plant that grows in the Kalahari Desert in Africa. This was known to the San Bushmen who used it to suppress appetite. Today, this has gained credence as an appetite suppressant for weight loss. There is no scientific evidence though to support the claims that consuming this can create weight loss. The safety of using this supplement too has not been verified yet.

      Bee Pollen

      Bee pollen is basically pollen collected from bees who have it kept concentrated in the hive for the queen bee. Chemical analyses of bee pollen bring up the fact that this is nutritionally diverse with not just carbohydrates but also protein, fat, Vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It’s believed to stimulate the metabolic processes and speed up burning of calories. It also claims to correct imbalances responsible for weight gain. However, medical experts from ScienceBasedMedicine.org state that this is neither safe nor effective.
