Natural Remedies for Losing Weight – Leptoprin
The bottom line with natural remedies for losing weight is that if you stop taking them, the weight comes back. You have not learned anything about how to properly lose weight and maintain your loss. You have tricked your body into perhaps losing some fat and likely some water – but have not addressed the underlying causes as to why you may be overweight in the first place. If there actually were a diet pill that worked for the long term you can bet major drug companies would be selling them. They aren’t!
Leptoprin (Anorex) has Calcium Phosphate, Commiphora mukul extract, Garcinia cambogia (HCA 125mg), L-Tyrosine, Acetylsalicyclic acid – 162.5mg, Dipotassium phosphate, Sodium phosphate, Disodium phosphate, Phosphatidyl choline, Scutellaria (root), Bupleurum (root), Epimedium (herb). You might be asking, as you should, why a diet product would have aspirin in it (something people on Coumadin dare not take).
Leptoprin is something called a Stack. The ECA (ephedra, caffeine and aspirin) stack is supposedly a thermogenic product – meaning it supposedly melts your fat away by boosting your metabolism. And while it may boost your metabolism, it is more than likely to give you a bad case of the jitters with two stimulants tag teamed together. It’s like taking speed, as there is only a minimal difference between methamphetamine and ephedrine/ephedra.
The side effects for a product like this are many – irregular or accelerated heart beat, insomnia, elevated blood pressure, seizures etc. And yet these products are labeled all natural. This is misleading as people then think they are also harmless. Again, as with any natural remedies, read the labels, search for the names of the list ingredients on the Internet, check for drug interactions, talk to your Doctor and/or your Pharmacist. If you’re considering taking something like this, it is better to be well informed, and have your Doctor know what you are doing. In the long run, you would best be served by a visit to your local Weight Watchers group and find out how they can help you with a truly natural weight loss program.
