Looking for that extra boost to kick start weight loss? Then weight loss pills and supplements may be one option to consider. Whether looking for pills to aid weight loss or vitamin supplements to maintain nutrition during dieting, there is bound to be a product on the market to suit your needs.
However, whilst there are a wide range of products on the market which promise everything from rapid weight loss to perfectly balanced nutritional health in a pill, beware there are also a lot of snake oils out there. At best such poor products will be a waste of time and money and at worse they may have long term medical consequences.
As such, before taking any form of dieting pill or weight loss supplement it is recommended that a medical professional is consulted first.
In general terms pill may be split down into two groups, firstly there are those that claim to directly aid weight loss by inducing changes in the body, such as an increased metabolic rate, apatite suppression or the blocking of fat from being digested.
Secondly there are supplements which are essentially nutritional aids to make up for deficiencies that may be created through the limited variety of food consumed in a calories restricted diet.
Weight loss pills and supplements are available from a wide range of outlets including health stores, supermarkets and drug stores, some pills however are only available on prescription and must be obtained from a chemist or pharmacy.
