Weight Loss Patch
How They Work:
These diet and weight loss patches claim to be all natural, advanced appetite suppressants, metabolism boosters and energy enhancers. Most of them contain the following blend of herbs:
* Fuscos Vesiculosus: Burns fat and improves weight loss.
* Garcinia Cambogia: An exotic, small, sweet fruit grown and used in South India and China. The active ingredient of garcinia cambogia is hydroxycitric acid (HCA). It is claimed to be used as an appetite suppressant and to inhibit the absorption of fat and cholesterol. Additionally, it contains a form of citric acid that helps you to metabolize carbohydrates.
* Guarana: Botanical name of Guarana is Paullinia Cupana. Guarana is a berry that grows in Venezuela and the northern parts of Brazil. The name 'Guarana' comes from the Guarani tribe that lives in Brazil. Guarana plays a very important role in their culture, as this herb is believed to be magical, a cure for bowel complaints and a way to regain strength. It is claimed to stimulates and balances your metabolism to stabilize and improve weight loss.
* Chromium Picolinate: The health professionals are finding that most people may not ingest enough dietary chromium. Deficiencies in chromium can impair insulin performance, affecting energy production, fat burning, lean muscle maintenance, and cholesterol utilization. Chromium Picolinate is a trace element that promotes the activity of insulin and is a critical component of normal glucose metabolism. It stimulates insulin's activity, thereby helping the metabolism of glucose and fat. Research suggests that chromium picolinate enhances body fat reduction by altering the metabolism of several neurotransmitters such as serotonin. It has also been shown to stimulate weight gain in people who do not exercise.
These ingredients are combined in a patch that is placed much like a band-aid on the skin and are claimed to be designed for immediate and measured delivery over a 12 hour period, claiming the elimination of hunger pains and speeding up the metabolism. Other brands of patches claim they only need to be replaced every three days.
It is always recommended that these diet patches are used in conjunction with diet and regular exercise.
Do they Work:
Although all of these companies claim that their patched will aid in weight loss, there are no clinically proven results supporting these claims. Once again - it is hard to believe that such quick fixes exist.
