Appetite Suppressants

Bitter Orange: Most of the constituents that give bitter orange medicinal properties are found in the peel, which is used to make herbal weight loss supplements. The active appetite suppressant ingredients are two alkaloids, synephrine and octopamine. According to NCCAM, synephrine is the chemical in bitter orange that's most like the principal chemical in ephedra, a compound called ephedrine that has amphetamine-like qualities.

Caffeine: Caffeine is used a stimulant; it raises your energy level and makes you more mentally aware. All stimulants suppress your appetite and speed up your metabolism. Caffeine also works as a diuretic and increases the body’s lipolysis process. Lipolysis is the breakdown of fats in your body to release free fatty acids (FFAs), which are then more easily available for your body to use for energy - not on your waistline. It also increases the body’s thermogenesis process which is, raising body heat by burning fat.

Caralluma Fimbriata: Often termed as the wealth of India, this Indian herb, has gained appreciation from people around the world due to its appetite suppressing ability. The Indian Health authorities have classified Caralluma Fimbriata to be a famine plant and had been given to people since prehistoric times to decrease their hunger under drastic circumstances. It is now available in capsule form and is primarily consumed to suppress appetite and hence facilitate weight loss.

Citrimax®: Suppresses appetite, burns fat, promotes healthy blood lipid levels and reduces Body Mass Index. Also has been shown to increase levels of serum serotonin, a neurotransmitter involved in mood, sleep and appetite control, which may help address many of the emotional issues overweight people face, including binge-eating and depression.

Chromium Chelate: More as a mineral than a suppressant, Chromium Chelate has unique capability to metabolize fat to produce glucose. It also increases the Chromium level required in our body to adequate which otherwise is consumed in quite less quantities in normal dietary routines. These abilities make it an amazing appetite suppressor which helps in burning excess body fat and increasing the energy level of the body.

Garcinia Cambogia (Hydroxycitric Acid): Another natural appetite suppressor, the Garcinia Cambogia is an Indian herb that was used extensively in the Hindu medicinal regime for treating chronic indigestion, stomach disorders, etc. Many producers of natural appetite suppressors are using Garcinia Cambogia as an active ingredient nowadays due to its ability to inhibit lipogenesis which is the process by which proteins and carbohydrates are converted to fats.

Green Tea (Camellia Sinesis): Among the natural appetite suppressors, green tea is perhaps the most popular. Not only does it has an appealing taste but also holds medicinal values. Its use since centuries as an herbal drink has been extremely useful in reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, enhanced anti-bacterial action, improved immune system, weight reduction, etc.

Guar Gum: Also known as guar, guar flour, and jaguar gum, guar gum is a dietary fiber obtained from the Indian cluster bean. Guar gum has been commonly used in small amounts as a thickening agent for foods and medications. It has been noted to decrease appetite by providing a "feeling of fullness."

Hoodia: Hoodia is a cactus like plant found in South Africa. The drug made a sensation by its ability to suppress appetite to ultimately decrease weight. Only Hoodia contains a natural appetite suppressant. This cactus like plant grows in Kalahari Desert, and the unique appetite suppressing substance is contained in the core of the plant. One of the most important advantages of Diet Pill Hoodia is that the drug does not cause any serious side effects, it is 100% safe.

Korean Pine Nut Oil: According to a study by Lipid Nutrition, “the pinolenic acid contained in pine nut oil can help curb appetite by stimulating the release of cholecystokinin, a hormone that functions as an appetite suppressant.” The study also showed that pine nut oil “boosts appetite suppressors up to 60% for four hours.” Research has shown that, in addition to suppressing the appetite, pine nut oil also can reduce LDLs, providing further health benefits. Pine nut oil also contains a high percentage of free radicals, which help reduce oxidative damage that can lead to ulcers or gastritis.

Yerba Maté (Llex Paraquarensis): The main ingredient in one of the most popular drinks in South America consumed by millions of individuals each year as an alternative to coffee. Yerba maté acts as a stimulant very similar to coffee however, the stimulant effect last longer and there are no side effects. Yerba maté is also responsible for the following positive effects: appetite suppressant, natural diuretic, enhances immune system, relieves constipation, decreases blood pressure, natural stimulant, etc.

Cortisol Diet Products

Ashwagandha: Also known as Indian winter cherry - is a shrub cultivated in India and North America whose roots have been used for thousands of years by Ayurvedic practitioners. Several studies over the past few years have looked into whether this herb has anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, anti-stress, antioxidant, mind-boosting, immune-enhancing, and rejuvenating properties. Historically Ashwagandha root has also been noted to have sex-enhancing properties. Many people notice a relaxing effect within hours of taking a 500 mg pill.

Banaba Leaf: The Banaba Bush, known in the United States as Crape Myrtle (or Crepe Myrtle), has become widespread in temperate regions of the country and is prized as an ornamental. Banaba extract, obtained from the leaves of the plant, is high in plant insulin, known as corosolic acid. Herbalists claim that the extract produces anti-diabetic effects when consumed by humans in the form of dietary supplements, juices or teas.

Citrus Aurantium: Citrus Aurantium is regularly used by dietary supplement manufacturers because of its weight loss properties. It contains the chemical compounds tyramine, synephrine and octopamine, which promote the breakdown of fats, oils and lipids. The compounds in Citrus aurantium trigger the body to discharge the stress hormone, norepinephrine (or noradrenaline) throughout receptor sites, generating chemical reactions that boost the breakdown of fats and enhance the body's metabolic resting rate.

Ginseng: Clinical studies have shown that this Chinese supplement increases energy and raises your metabolism. It has also been found to reduce levels of stress hormones such as Cortisol. These hormones can lead to gaining weight  so Ginseng has a doubly beneficial effect.

L-Theanine: L-Theanine is an amino acid that helps promote a mild, restful, relaxed state with minimal daytime sedation. L-Theanine creates an alert yet totally relaxed state of mind without drowsiness. Clinically proven to reduce stress, improve the quality of sleep, diminish normal syptoms of PMS, heighten mental acuity and reduce negative side effects of caffeine.  L-Theanine has much fewer side effects than other commonly used relaxing agents and is more potent than GABA supplements.

Magnolia: In Chinese medicine Magnolia Bark has been associated with the stomach, lungs, spleen and large intestine for over two thousand years and has been used to improve digestion and treat abdominal bloating, gas, nausea, diarrhea, menstrual cramps and dyspepsia. Recent studies have found that the herb helps to inhibit the production of cortisol (the substance that encourages fat storage) and may be effective in weight loss programs.

Phosphatidylserine: Phosphatidylserine is a specialized lipid that occurs naturally in the body. While it is a necessary component to regulate the function of all cells, it is found in the highest concentration in the brain. In fact, phosphatidylserine plays a key role in neurotransmission and synaptic function. As such, researchers began to investigate the potential of this cellular nutrient in the prevention and treatment of cognitive disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease. Positive response in study subjects participating in early clinical trials led to this substance being promoted as a dietary supplement to enhance memory and cognitive performance.

St. John's Wort: This herbal product is primarily used as an antidepressant. St. John's wort and ephedra are the two primary ingredients in herbal phen-fen. If you are taking St. John's Wort, you should avoid tyramine-containing foods (for example, aged cheese, cured or aged meats, wines, etc.). You should also check with your doctor before taking any other drugs, since it has many potential harmful interactions with antidepressants, birth control pills, blood thinners, heart medications, and dextromethorphan (contained in various cold remedies).

Carb Blockers

Chromium is thought to enhance the effect of insulin and therefore the breakdown of carbohydrates. It has been touted as a weight loss aid and a fat burner. Chromium boosts cellular activity which makes the metabolism process stronger.

Glucomannan: Made from the root of Amorphophallus Konjac, Glucomannan is said to contribute to weight loss by delaying the absorption of glucose from the intestines. Small limited studies have shown Glucomannan to be effective in decreasing body weight. This effect is believed to be due to a "feeling of fullness" which may be due to the swelling of the Glucomannan in the gut once it has been exposed to liquids. Glucomannan should not be used by people with a previous history of gastrointestinal obstruction, and caution should be used in diabetics.

Guarana: Made from the seeds of a plant native to Brazil, Guarana speeds up the brain's activity and is used to promote weight loss due to its stimulant and diuretic effect. Guarana contains 3% to 5% caffeine and may cause high blood pressure. Some of the extracts have been known to cause prolonged bleeding and interact with blood thinning drugs such as Coumadin.

Phaselous Vulgaris: An extract from the northern white kidney bean. The extract interferes with an enzyme in the body called alpha-amylase that breaks down carbohydrates into glucose. Instead of carbohydrates being broken down and turning to fat, the carbs are excreted from the body before they can enter the bloodstream.

Vanadium: This mineral promotes your metabolism and helps you burn more calories. It also aids in the formation of strong bones and teeth. Vanadium also plays a crucial role in growth and reproduction purposes. It also improves the utilization of glucose, which keeps high blood sugar levels at bay.

Diuretic Diet Pills

Asparagus: Asparagus have detoxifying and diuretic effects. Their fibers help us clean out our gastrointestinal tract. They also help the body get rid of the excess water. Asparagus also contains the phytochemical glutathione, which has antioxidant and anticarcinogenic properties.

Dandelion: Dandelion is a natural diuretic. It may produce significant weight loss by decreasing body water. However, it can cause allergic reactions and heartburn.

Buchu Leaves: Buchu is reported to have slight diuretic properties. A number of Buchu’s components, which include diosphenol (also known as buchu camphor) and additional chemicals that belong to the flavonoid class of drugs, are believed to irritate the bladder, causing the release of urine.

Caffeine: Caffeine is used a stimulant; it raises your energy level and makes you more mentally aware. All stimulants suppress your appetite and speed up your metabolism. Caffeine also works as a diuretic and increases the body’s lipolysis process. Lipolysis is the breakdown of fats in your body to release free fatty acids (FFAs), which are then more easily available for your body to use for energy - not on your waistline.

Guarana contains 3% to 5% caffeine and may cause high blood pressure. It is used as a fat burner and stimulant there, and is actually a very well-known drink. One of the nice attributes of Guarana is that it does not irritate your stomach like caffeine can, and is less likely to give you the 'peak and trough' ride that drinking coffee brings.

Juniper Berry: This familiar household seasoning has a significant diuretic effect, flushing excess water from the body. It’s this ability to increase the flow of urine that makes Juniper a useful aid in the treatment of urinary infections and kidney stones. The berries’ diuretic action also tends to lower blood pressure–although not sufficiently to warrant therapeutic use.

Taurine: In the cell, taurine keeps potassium and magnesium inside the cell while keeping excessive sodium out. In this sense it works like a diuretic. But unlike prescription diuretics, it is not a cellular poison. It does not act against the kidney, but improves kidney function instead. Taurine is very useful in fighting tissue swelling and fluid accumulation.

Uva Ursi: The leaves of this small shrub have been used as an herbal folk medicine for centuries as a mild diuretic and astringent, and in the treatment of urinary tract infections.

Fat Blockers

Chitosan (KITE-o-san): This dietary supplement is made from chitin, a starch found in the skeleton of shrimp, crab, and other shellfish. Chitosan cannot be digested; therefore it passes through your intestinal tract unabsorbed without adding any calories. The chemical nature of Chitosan makes it bind with fatty foods, removing some of the fat from your body as it passes through rather than allowing it to be absorbed.

Opuntia ficus-indica: See Prickly Pear

Orlistat: Orlistat attaches to a number of these enzymes and prevents them from digesting about a quarter with the body fat consumed. Mainly because undigested body fat isn’t absorbed, it passes out with the physique as opposed to turning into calories.

Prickly Pear (Neopunti): A patented fiber complicated derived from the Optuntia Ficus India Cactus (Prickly Pear). There are two types of fiber at function here – soluble and non-soluble. The non-soluble fibers attach to the fat molecules. Now the fat molecules have become too large to pass through the gut walls into the bloodstream and are passed from the body.  The second step is the soluble fiber molecules turn to a thick gel that gets digested by the body. The solution fools the body into thinking it is full so you consume less food.

It also increases the body’s thermogenesis process which is, raising body heat by burning fat.

Ephedra: Ephedra deserves to be mentioned, even though it has been (quite rightly) banned by the FDA and no longer appears in diet pills. It is an extremely effective stimulant, similar to caffeine but is more effective and stronger. The problem was that many patients began to develop heart problems or have strokes, as the stimulant was too much simple for their system to handle. If you see any diet pills advertised as containing Ephedra, our advice is to steer clear.

Ginseng: Clinical studies have shown that this Chinese supplement increases energy and raises your metabolism. It has also been found to reduce levels of stress hormones such as Cortisol. These hormones can lead to gaining weight so Ginseng has a doubly beneficial effect.

Green Tea: EGCG is the active ingredient in Green Tea, and most of the extracts are rich in it. Green Tea in a concentrated form is so effective because it increases your metabolism and reduces your appetite. Green Tea has been used for more than 4000 years in Chinese medicine, to cure ailments ranging from headaches to depression, and now is one of the most well-known and effective diet aids around.

Guarana contains 3% to 5% caffeine and may cause high blood pressure. It is used as a fat burner and stimulant there, and is actually a very well-known drink. One of the nice attributes of Guarana is that it does not irritate your stomach like caffeine can.

HCA: HCA is the active ingredient in Garcinia Cambogia, an Indian herb. This herb was originally used in Ayurvedic medicine, a branch of holistic treatment originally created for Indian royalty. The purified form is called hydroxycitric acid, which suppresses appetite, makes blood sugar levels normal and enhances fat-burning.

Pyruvate: Pyruvate is a chemical that aids in the metabolism if Glucose. Pyruvate claims that it can stimulate metabolism and thus reduce body fat. Pyruvate is a natural ingredient found in food, as well as in the body as a result of a breakdown of carbohydrate proteins. Some recent studies have shown there may be a weight-loss benefit using pyruvate supplements. But those who took the study also exercised as well as cutting back on calories.

Yerba Mate: Yerba Mate is an evergreen tree that is most common found throughout South America. Its leaf has been used as a tea and medicine for centuries among the indigenous people of Brazil and Paraguay. The local people treasure it for its properties as an appetite-suppressant and energy-giver.

The major active ingredient in Yerba Mate is caffeine, which increases your metabolism and aids weight loss. Although it does more than just a cup of coffee through the unique way that its natural substances work together. It also contains Saponins, plant chemicals that have been shown to stimulate the immune system.

Yohimbe: Yohimbe is used to help build muscle, improve sexual function, reduce anxiety, elevate mood, and prevent heart attacks. Because it stimulates the central nervous system, it has been used to treat narcolepsy and for weight loss. Yohimbe increases fatty acid mobilization, decreasing fat synthesis, which means it not only aids in weight loss, but actual fat reduction. Yohimbe is popular with bodybuilders. By stimulating the production of testosterone, it can help build muscle mass.

Fat Burners – Stimulant Free

You will find the same ingredients as Fat Burners – Thermogenics without the stimulants. In order to increase the fat-burning processes in the body it depends on the ingredients like:

Capsicum: Is a type of pepper plant or chili pepper. Research has indicated that this plant can be used in reducing body weight and improving body fat mobilization together with exercising and a healthy diet. For this reason, capsicum has become a common ingredient in herbal diet pills.

CLA (Conjugated linoleic acid): CLA is a collective term used to describe one or more positional and geometric forms of the essential fatty acid linoleic acid. CLA is naturally present in cow’s milk and beef and other ruminant meats. Milk fat, in particular, is the richest natural dietary source of CLA. A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study, published in the December 2000 issue of the Journal of Nutrition found that CLA reduces fat and preserves muscle tissue.

FucoXanthin: Fucoxanthin (pronounced FEW-co-ZAN-thin) is a type of carotenoid pigment found in brown sea weeds such as wakame and hijiki and to a lesser extent in red and green sea weeds. Although it’s not fully understood how fucoxanthin works, it appears to stimulate thermogenesis in white fat cells. Thermogenesis is the creation of heat from increased metabolic rate utilizing internal stores of energy, such as fat. White fat accumulates in the liver and around the abdomen (visceral fat) and is linked to heart disease, diabetes, and other health problems.

Fucoxanthin does not stimulate the central nervous system or increase heart rate. Not only is it safe with no side effects, it is a powerful antioxidant. In addition, it improves cardiovascular health, cholesterol and triglyceride levels, blood pressure, and liver function. It also increases the production of DHA (an omega-3 fatty acid naturally occurring in fish oil) thereby reducing C-reactive proteins, a marker for inflammation. There is also evidence suggesting that Fucoxanthin may be of use in treating diabetes and cancer.

Ginger Root: Ginger Root works as a stimulant by slowly moving through the gastrointestinal tract and energizing the body through the bloodstream. It has long been known to aid metabolism and help promote weight loss. Ginger root also improves gastric motility, which helps reduce bloating by moving food out of the stomach and aiding digestion.

Green Tea: See Fat Burners – Thermogenics

Grapefruit Extract: The U.S. National Library of Medicine's database says that manufacturers claim that grapefruit extract helps curb appetite, burn calories, prevent overeating, suppress the taste of sweetness, and helps control the feeling of hunger. They promote a 20-lb. weight loss when combined with a diet plan included with the supplement.

PM Diet Pills

Amino Acids: Specifically naturally occurring amino acids that transform into Serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is an important brain chemical that stabilizes your mood and reduces impulsive behavior. By increasing Serotonin levels, consumers experience reduced hunger and mild sedative effects that help dieters to sleep.

Valerian Root: Valerian has been used as a sleep aid for over 1,000 years. It has the ability to help relax the central nervous system, promote feelings of calm, decrease levels of anxiety and stress, and enhance sleep. Unlike some prescription sleep aids, valerian is not known to cause morning grogginess and is non-addictive.

Hops Flower: Hops Flower is used to sooth the stomach and promotes healthy digestion. Hops tea was also recommended by herbalists as a mild sedative and remedy for insomnia, particularly for those with insomnia resulting from an upset stomach.

Jujube: Also known as Red Date or Chinese Date, Jujube is used in Chinese and Korean traditional medicine to alleviate stress. Ziziphin, a compound in the leaves of the jujube, suppresses the ability to perceive sweet taste in humans.

Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnata): The fresh or dried leaves are used to make an infusion, a tea that is used to treat insomnia, hysteria, and epilepsy, and is also valued for its painkilling properties.

Chamomile: This herb has been used medicinally for thousands of years, and is widely used in Europe. It is a popular treatment for numerous ailments, including sleep disorders.

Melatonin:  A hormone produced naturally in the pineal gland at the base of the brain. Melatonin is important in regulating sleep, and may play a role in maintaining circadian rhythm, the body’s natural time clock.

Thyroid Hormone Supplements

Adrenal Powder from Bovine: The adrenal glands are basic in regulating your body's stress levels. Adrenal powder is used more and more in natural weight control products, and also can help with other stress effects brought on by hypothyroidism. Because the thyroid regulates the adrenal glands, people with hypothyroidism commonly don't produce enough adrenal hormones.

Bladderwrack: Bladderwrack is a seaweed with a long history of use for maintaining thyroid function and maintaining a healthy body weight. The complex carbohydrates (alginates) of Bladderwrack have been studied in the laboratory and clinic and are well known for promoting proper digestive function. Bladderwrack contains a significant amount of iodine, a nutrient necessary for thyroid hormone production.

Black Walnut:  Black walnut has a high content of iodine and is a thyroid stimulant.

Coleus Forskholii: Coleus Forskholii is an herb in the mint family. This compound increases cyclic AMP levels within most cells. Cyclic AMP is a type of second messenger, that is, one that transmits a signal from a hormone into the cell. Of particular interest here is the fact that thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) requires cyclic AMP to transmit its signal.

TSH is the hormone produced by the pituitary gland that tells the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones. This might explain how people with normal TSH levels can still have symptoms of low thyroid function—there isn't enough cyclic AMP to transmit the message. Coleus may help avoid this problem, and Forskolin has been shown to increase TSH activity in thyroid cells.

Ginger  (Zingiber officinale): It is prominent as a spice in several Asian countries including India, China, Thailand, and Japan. It also found in many homemade or traditional herbal medicines. Cholesterol levels are associated with healthy thyroid function and Ginger helps to support and balance cholesterol levels. Studies are still being conducted, but there is mounting evidence that Ginger root extract can help reduce the levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol in the body.

Guglipid: Important new evidence indicates that Guglipid, an extract from the Indian Guggal tree, can improve thyroid function. This means that it contributes to controlling weight in people who have hypothyroidism. Scientists are finding that Guglipid lowers bad cholesterol and increases good cholesterol, and helps prevent heart disease. Guglipid is used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat obesity, arthritis and lipid problems.

Irish Moss: Irish moss is used to balance hormonal deficiency. It increases the metabolic rate, thyroid activity and the detoxifying function of the body, and increase blood circulation and sothe inflamed tissues.

Kelp:  Kelp is very similar to Bladderwrack in most aspects. It was used traditionally for regulation of the thyroid gland, to minimize weight gain and to promote healthy digestive and urinary system function. It is loaded with big quantities of iodine which is necessary in curing an underactive thyroid condition. It is also a rich source of innate vitamins, minerals and amino acids to support the performance of strong glands through controlling the functions of the thyroid. It has 32 trace as well as other most important minerals.

Licorice: Licorice is a treatment used in a large number of medications and is added to many herbal formulas including natural remedies for thyroid disease. Licorice enhances muscle protection which is vital for the thyroid gland. Licorice may boost the life of cells and the action of various secreting cells. Studies have shown that Licorice is a most effective symptom treatment for thyroid patients.

L-tyrosine: An amino acid which besides building proteins, is one of the amino acids that your body needs to make thyroid hormones and also helps in regulating emotions. L-Tyrosine is included in some weight control products because it works to stimulate the metabolism. It's also an element in helping your brain operate efficiently and for you to feel good naturally.

Manganese: This is another type of mineral which is needed to develop a particular antioxidant enzyme known as manganese-dependent superoxide dismutase, which is considered as the main defender of thyroid hormone.

Nori: The Japanese seaweed Nori, also used in China and Korea, helps prevent thyroid problems such as goiter because it contains iodine, as well as fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals. In traditional medicine, Nori is used to strengthen the circulatory system and to reduce cholesterol.

Selenium: This is a kind of mineral that is usually insufficient in a typical American regimen because of weakened soils. It is considered very important in maintaining the correct performance of your thyroid.

Schizandra Berry: Schizandra Berry is used to maintain healthy nerve, liver, lung and adrenal gland function. Accordingly, this berry serves as a valuable general tonic that encourages overall health and stamina, and improves one's natural ability to tolerate both physical and emotional stress.

Piper Longum (long pepper): has been found to increase the production of thyroid hormones and stimulate the immune system. In Ayurvedic medicine, Piper longum is used to treat the digestive and respiratory systems.

Natural Diet Pills

Diet Pills are considered "natural" when they contain only non-pharmaceutical herbs and extracts. The ingredients in natural diet pills are often available in their whole food forms, such as grapefruit, cranberries, parsley and dietary fiber.

Common ingredients found in Natural diet pills include:

Chromium (GTF Chromium/Chromium Picolinate): This is a trace mineral that may help reduce sugar cravings and regulate appetite by stabilizing blood sugar levels. The evidence on chromium as a weight loss aid is still inconclusive, but some health practitioners do advocate it as part of an entire weight loss program. It won’t help you lose weight by itself, but if you take it along with changing your diet and adding exercise, it may be helpful. (Make sure to follow the recommended dosage, as an overdose of this mineral can lead to kidney damage.)

Garcinia Cambogia: The Garcinia cambogia fruit rind extract contains hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which is supposed to curb food intake, excess calories and weight gain. Recent studies have shown to prove that Garcinia Cambogia can be an effective weight-loss aid. Some side effects are upper respiratory symptoms and gastrointestinal symptoms as well.

Green Tea: EGCG is the active ingredient in Green Tea, and most of the extracts are rich in it. Green Tea in a concentrated form is so effective because it increases your metabolism and reduces your appetite. Green Tea has been used for more than 4000 years in Chinese medicine, to cure ailments ranging from headaches to depression, and now is one of the most well-known and effective diet aids around.

One of the nice attributes of Guarana is that it does not irritate your stomach like caffeine can, and is less likely to give you the 'peak and trough' ride that drinking coffee brings.

Guggul (Guggulsterones): is a resin which is produced by the stem of the commiphora mukul tree, a relatively small, thorny plant native to India. In some studies, guggul reportedly has shown to increase the production of the thyroid hormone. Since this hormone is involved in the cells’ breakdown of protein, fat, and carbohydrates, theoretically this herb should promote weight loss.

Hydroxymethylbutyrate (HMB): HMB is a natural byproduct caused by the breakdown of the leucine amino acid. HMB supplements are commonly used by body builders in the hopes of increasing muscle mass. A few random studies have found that HMB does increases lean mass, as well as decreasing body fat when combined with active weight training.

Bladderwrack: Bladderwrack is a seaweed with a long history of use for maintaining thyroid function and maintaining a healthy body weight. The complex carbohydrates (alginates) of Bladderwrack have been studied in the laboratory and clinic and are well known for promoting proper digestive function.

You should also check with your doctor before taking any other drugs, since it has many potential harmful interactions with antidepressants, birth control pills, blood thinners, heart medications, and dextromethorphan (contained in various cold remedies).

Dietary Fiber: The idea behind taking products with dietary fiber is that they will make you feel full, so you supposedly eat less. They also aid in elimination, which can help with detoxification.

Pectin: Pectin is a soluble fiber that occurs naturally in such fruits as apples, pears, and bananas. Pectin’s actual effect on appetite may vary for different people.

Guar Gum: Guar Gum is a dietary fiber obtained from the Indian cluster bean. Guar Gum is used in many foods as a thickening agent. This fiber is supposed to make you feel full like pectin, but it can cause gastrointestinal disorders and fluctuations in blood sugar levels.

Glucomannan: Derived from the konjac root, Glucomannan can absorb a great deal of water and thus promote a feeling of fullness.

Fenugreek Seeds: Fenugreek seeds contain 40% soluble fiber, which has the same effects as listed above. Fenugreek seeds may also reduce blood glucose levels.

Pyruvate: Pyruvate is a chemical that aids in the metabolism if Glucose. Pyruvate claims that it can stimulate metabolism and thus reduce body fat. Pyruvate is a natural ingredient found in food, as well as in the body as a result of a breakdown of carbohydrate proteins. Some recent studies have shown there may be a weight-loss benefit using pyruvate supplements. But those who took the study also exercised as well as cutting back on calories.

White Willow Bark: White Willow Bark is an ingredient which is being used in supplements as an aid to weight loss to help dieters to meet their weight loss goals quickly and easily. White Willow Bark is actually another name for the original version of aspirin, which has traditionally been used for very different reasons. White Willow Bark in fact does not aid weight loss at all when used on its own, though scientific research has shown that it may be able to extend the activity and effects of other ingredients when used in a dietary supplement.

Yerba Mate: Yerba Mate is an evergreen tree that is most common found throughout South America. Its leaf has been used as a tea and medicine for centuries among the indigenous people of Brazil and Paraguay. The local people treasure it for its properties as an appetite-suppressant and energy-giver.
