Last Friday, while watching Centric a commercial came on for Lipozene, it is touted as being the #1 weight loss pill in America! The advertisement states that you don't have to change your diet or exercise to lose weight, simply take the pill.
We are what I like to call this generation, the microwave generation. Whatever it is we want it NOW and we don't want to have to put in the work, time, and effort necessary to get it. What bothers me more than that is someone who struggles with weight loss and body image will order this magic pill and expect a miracle.
Most advertisements entice us, feed on our insecurities, or simply sound so convincing before we know it we have pulled out our phone, computer and our credit card. We are dialing in or loading up the web page to buy whatever product is advertised on TV that we don't need and potentially isn't good for us.
I haven't reviewed Lipozene however my overall belief is most anything in pill form is not good for us. Also, does one have to take the pill for the rest of their lives to experience the effects. More importantly,
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS????????????????????
The fact that the supplement works by absorbing water means that it can block the gut. The feeling is worse for people who have a narrow esophagus. This is quite risky, and it can block the intestines too. In some states like Australia, the supplement has been banned due to this danger.
Changes in blood pressure
Diabetics are advised to take Lipozenes and glucomannan products on the doctors advise because the active ingredient in Lipozene (glucomannan) has the ability to effect changes in the blood glucose levels. It does this causing the loss of blood sugars, which is risky for diabetics.
Lipozene acts as a laxative meant to provide relief from constipation, but its prolonged usage could cause severe diarrhea. An increase in fiber intake should solve this problem, but there have been reports on eMedTV that the diarrhea could be severe and lasts for a long time.
There is a possibility of Lipozene fermentation if the high fiber ingredient mixes with the bacteria in the stomach. As a result, it could cause bloating of the stomach due to gas production. The effect is abdominal pains and cramping.
It is advisable that such supplements be in the form of a capsule for the stomach to digest easily.
EMedTV reports certain allergic reactions from Lipozene use and advises immediate medical attention. Some of the symptoms of Lipozene allergic reactions include itching, wheezing, skin rashes, swelling of the face and throat, as well as breathing complications.
Nothing, NOTHING, I repeat NOTHING is more valuable to your overall health than proper eating habits and exercise.
