      The Best & Worst Weight Loss Drugs – PART IV

      There has been a lot of hype about supplements and the role that they play in weight loss. Since many of these claim to be natural, there is a huge following for them. However, do these miracle supplements really work? Here’s a look into what works and what does not.

      Garcinia Cambogia

      Garcinia Cambogia is one of those supplements that weight loss enthusiasts have been raving about. This is a tropical fruit grown in Indonesia. It contains an ingredient called hydroxycitric acid (HCA) in the rind. This is believed to work on an enzyme that makes your body store fat.  This has also been known to increase the levels of the neurotransmitter, serotonin which improves your mood and reduces stress-related eating.

      Women who are breastfeeding or pregnant must avoid using this HCA supplement. Additionally, diabetics who take insulin or glyburide must discuss taking this supplement with their doctors as it can cause an unsafe drop in blood sugar.

      While choosing a brand of Garcinia Cambogia supplement, look for a 50-60% hydroxycitric acid content. You must consume these pills on an empty stomach 30-60 minutes before your meals. These have to be taken thrice a day with plenty of water.

      The flipside of Garcinia Cambogia is that many of their claims have not been consistently backed by medical research.


      Glucomannan is a name you may not have heard of but it’s a popular weight loss supplement. It’s a dietary fiber manufactured from the root of the konjac plant. This is low in calories and acts by reducing the absorption of fat and protein besides making you feel fuller. It’s important to start off with a very small quantity of this. Despite the popularity it enjoys, none of the studies performed on it have conclusively proved that it can actually reduce weight.
