      The Best & Worst Weight Loss Drugs – PART V

      Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA)

      Conjugated linoleic acid is formulated with chemicals found in the fatty acid, linoleic acid. Dairy products and beef are the major dietary sources of this ingredient. CLA works by helping control the hunger-hormone, ghrelin besides helping you improve your body’s ability to absorb nutrients. It also increases the metabolic rate helping you burn calories faster. CLA studies show that it reduced body fat and preserved muscle tissue in overweight or obese people even when they did not change their dietary habits. However, if you plan to take this drug, you must check with your doctor first.

      Raspberry Ketones

      Raspberry Ketones is a weight loss supplement that gained great credence after Dr. Oz mentioned it on TV. This claims to break down the fat within cells more effectively and helping the body burn fat faster. This also claims that it increases the levels of adiponectin, a hormone that helps to regulate metabolism. However, there is no medical evidence to show that this actually helps to lose weight.

      Forskolin

      Forskolin is a weight loss supplement prepared using the root of a plant in the mint family. This grows in Nepal, India, and Thailand. Knowledge of this is not new as it has been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for a long time. It claims to help you lose weight by lowering your appetite and improving your body’s capacity to break down fats and lipids. However, there are few studies to support its claim as a weight loss tablet.

       

      Ephedra or Bitter Orange

      Ephedra was a medication banned in 2004 but after that any number of similar products have come up claiming to help in weight loss. This has been replaced with the ingredients bitter orange (citrus aurantium), synephrine or octopamine. Tests performed on Xenadrine EFX and Advantra Z still show that this medication has a negative impact on heart rate and blood pressure.
