Nuphedrine and other diet pills

How to choose a diet pill
How to choose a diet pill

In the highly competitive and ever growing market of diet pills and weight loss products, very few products receive any level of acclaim for their great results. In reality, it’s easier to find reasons as to why a particular product does not work than it is to find consumer comments promoting any diet product. Nuphedrine is one of those very rare products where more users have found positive results than negative and are happy to post those results all over the Internet. It’s a great alternative to liposuction and other surgical weight loss measures and is relatively affordable.

What Are The Main Active Ingredients In Nuphedrine?

The manufacturers of Nuphedrine boast their three main ingredients to be Advantra Z, Hoodia Gordonii, and Slimaluma. These three ingredients are thought to be the most effective and most potent factors in any weight loss formula. Combining the three is definitely a huge factor in the success users of Nuphedrine are finding.

Hoodia Gordonii is native to the Kalahari desert and has a rich history of use among the natives of the region as an appetite suppressant and thirst quencher. P57 presence in this plant sends messages to the brain by affecting the hypothalamus gland, relaying that the body is not hungry or thirsty.

Advantra Z is a form of Bitter Orange, which contains Synephrine. Synephrine is an Ephedra alkaloid, offering many of the same effects as the FDA banned substance without the unwanted side effects or risks involved. This is the ingredient that backs Nuphedrine’s advertising of helping users to “burn hundreds of more calories per day”. Users find they do not feel drained as so many dieters due to lack of food intake due to this element of the Nuphedrine formula.

Slimaluma, a form of the native-Indian plant Caralluma Fimbriata, is theorized to suppress the appetite and promote stamina in those who ingest it. In individual studies of Slimaluma, this was not proven but when combined with real South African Hoodia Gordonii and Advantra Z, the effects are certainly present.

Is Nuphedrine Dangerous?

Like any appetite and thirst suppressant, Nuphedrine certainly has risks associated with its use although they are minimal. Ultimately, this weight loss aid becomes more dangerous if it is abused. Users must remember that although they may not feel hungry or thirsty, they must offer their body nourishment in the form of food and water. No diet pill, vitamin or supplement can offer everything the human body requires to be healthy.

Nuphedrine also contains ingredients that are not native to Europe and North America, where the product is most frequently purchased. This puts users at risk for allergic reaction as they are not exposed to these foreign ingredients. Thus far, serious complications outside the user’s control have been rarely reported.

How To Properly Use Nuphedrine

Nuphedrine’s website guides users to take three Nuphedrine capsules per day – two first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach or within 2 hours following your first meal and another mid-day to curb hunger through the evening. The website does guide users to incorporate healthy eating habits and daily exercise in order to garner the best results possible from the product and also deters use by those who suffer from the following medical conditions:

◊ diabetes
◊ high blood pressure
◊ any heart problems
◊ any eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia
◊ any woman who is pregnant, breast feeding or is planning to become pregnant in the near future.

All of the evidence presented suggests that Nuphedrine is indeed effective when combined with healthy eating habits and daily exercise. However, if you suffer from any health conditions whatsoever, you would be wise to discuss the use of Nuphedrineor any other diet pills with your physician before beginning use. Nuphedrine is not designed to be a replacement for a healthy lifestyle, but a booster system for those who find difficulty in weight loss.

Do Diet Pills Really Work?

A pill a day keeps liposuction away...or does it?

A pill a day keeps liposuction away...or does it?

In short, the answer to this question is no but it ultimately depends on how the pills are used and the lifestyle of the user. There are many different diet pills available on the market today, some of which work quite well when combined with exercise and healthy eating habits. What many consumers fail to appreciate about this products is that they are not designed to used alone and they will not produce results alone.

Diet pills often contain numerous different substances that encourage an increase in our metabolism – the process that breaks down food and calories, following by absorption into the body. Some of these substances are utterly harmless, while others have been known to cause serious health complications. For this reason, it is very important to discuss with your physician your weight loss goals and program before beginning any regimen. Your doctor will know if the product you have selected is safe for you and your individual health.

These products generally come in three forms:

  1. prescription form (meaning that a licensed physician must recommend your use of the product and make written request for the product to be provided to you by a pharmacist),
  2. over-the-counter (no prescription or recommendation is required, you can simply pull this product off the shelf and pay for it like anything else) and finally
  3. herbal form – herbal weight loss pills are becoming increasingly popular as they boast natural ingredients that are harmless to the user’s health.

It is very important to ensure that any pills you are considering have been inspected and approved by your federal food and drug agency. Some supplements, such as herbal pills, are treated as food product so be careful to review the entire list of approved products before beginning a weight loss program involving any kind of supplement.

The true answer to this so commonly asked question? Sure, diet pills work. Just not all of them, and they don’t work alone. Consulting with your local food and drug administration, your physician and actively partaking in research on the products itself prior to adding them to your daily lifestyle is a key factor in using these products safely and effectively. After finding one that is safe for your health conditions and suits your weight loss program, follow the directions closely and remember that you have to live a healthy life in order for these products to help you. Get lots of exercise, eat right and results will follow.

Phentermine HCl Pills

Thousands of people have heard of or tried Ephedra as a diet pill, often for appetite suppressant or weight loss uses. However, Ephedra has many negative connotations and can actually be deadly if used in excess. On the other hand, it is very effective and can help people lose a significant amount of weight quickly. Many people wonder if there are similar “diet pills” out there that are safer for everyday use.

Phentermine Hcl

Phentermine Hcl

Phentermine hcl is produced by the human body, normally in the first 2-3 months after a woman gets pregnant. Although it is unknown where this hormone comes from or where it goes when a woman is not pregnant, it is safe to use by both men and women and works as an effective appetite suppressor to aid in weight loss efforts. Instead of choosing painful and costly plastic surgery, Phentermine hcl offers patients a chance to lose weight safely and quickly without the dangerous side effects.

This drug is FDA-approved, unlike Ephedra, and has been used successfully for over half a century. Although it is classified as a controlled substance, it also comes in generic form and is sometimes covered under insurance when prescribed by a doctor, unlike liposuction. It acts like an amphetamine, and is similar thereto, but it is not an amphetamine and should not be treated as such.

Drugs like Phentermine hcl are typically prescribed for the morbidly obese and similar patients for a short duration (usually less than 12 weeks) only. It should not be taken longer than that unless prescribed by a licensed healthcare professional. Common side effects include depression, sleepiness, rise in blood pressure, grouchiness, nervousness, euphoric feelings, and fatigue, but these are normally harmless and go away quickly.

Check with your doctor before you start or stop taking any medication like Phentermine hcl, as there can be side effects associated with the drug that are not listed above. In addition, only a doctor can tell you whether you are an appropriate candidate for this drug, since he/she knows your medical history and any prescriptions you are currently taking.

Overall, Phentermine hcl is safer than many similar weight loss drugs and appetite suppressants, and side effects are actually rare for most patients. FDA-approval is significant, and means that it is much easier to obtain Phentermine hcl than similar products. Therefore, it is a very effective alternative to cosmetic surgery, and costs a fraction of the price.
