Dietary Supplements for Weight Loss

Obesity has become a major health problem in the United States. It contributes to numerous health problems such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, coronary hearth disease, sleep apnea and respiratory problems, osteoarthritis, and stroke.

Maintaining a diet low in fat and getting regular exercise contributes to getting healthy, but sometimes it isn't enough. There are surgical procedures such as Lap-Band and gastric bypass, which have shown to be effective in some individuals, but it is expensive and because it is a surgical procedure, comes with risks that all surgeries have. There are also prescription medications, but a visit to a doctor is needed and these medications are usually only given in severe cases.

There are many reasons people may turn to diet supplements; the stigma obesity carries, health benefits, it's less demanding the lifestyle changes, frustration with failed attempts with diet and exercise, a prescription isn't required, and because many supplements like to advertise that they are "natural." Many dietary supplements are over the counter and may be effective and many of these are natural. But it shouldn't be interpreted that if something is natural that it is completely safe.

Bitter orange is known for increasing the number of calories burned by the body. It contains several chemical compounds that are believed to stimulate the metabolic rate. This in turn, may increase calorie burning in the body. Although there is not enough evidence to substantiate the effectiveness of bitter orange as a weight loss supplement, it does appear to be effective in a combination with St. John’s Wort and caffeine.

Chitosan has been around for a long time. It is taken form chitin, which is found in the exoskeleton of crustaceans. It is ground into a powder and this powder clings to fats. As a weight loss supplement, it clings to fats so that is can't be absorbed by the body. It also acts as a super fiber, so it cleansing process is created, which is said to be extremely vital to weight loss.

Chromium is a mineral that is required by humans in trace amounts. It can be found in broccoli, grape juice, whole wheat English muffins, mashed potatoes, dried garlic, and red wine. It is claimed that chromium may reduce body fat and increase lean muscle mass.

Green tea has been used for hundreds of years for its health properties. Studies have found that green tea extract may result in a significant increase in energy expenditure and has effects on fat oxidation. This may be particularly beneficial to thyroid patients because it has potential to accelerate metabolism while preventing over stimulation of the adrenal glands. It works without increasing the heart rate. In addition to being used as a weight loss supplement, it also may help reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, and recently has been shown to help prevent liver failure.

Hoodia gordonii is a cactus that has received a lot of publicity recently as a natural appetite suppressant. The origins of Hoodia are traced back over the past 1000 years to the Kalahari desert where the stems of the plant was used by the San Bushman to ward off hunger and thirst during long hunting trips. It has no known side effects and is not a stimulant, but should not be taken be people with diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, or bleeding disorders.

Proper diet and exercise should be a part of everyone's lifestyle, but in the instances that this does not work, there are numerous dietary supplements that can help control weight. Although a doctor is not needed to purchase these products, they should be consulted for proper use.

People turn to herbal diet supplements due to various reasons such as the stigma obesity carries, health benefits, demanding lifestyle changes, and frustration with failed attempts with diet and exercise. For supplements that can help you lose weight naturally, visit
