Top 10 Diet Supplements

I have never taken diet pills to help me with my obesity problem. I have, however, had many, many friends who have used a variety of different kind of diet pills over the years with varying results. Some have lost a lot of weight and been able to keep it off. For others it was just one more in a long string of yo-yo experiences. But I decided that it might be time for me to do some research and see what I could come up with about the current diet pills available on the mass-market consumer level these days. Here is an outline of what I found about the top ten diet pills currently available  in the general market place today.

#1 Abidexin

Abidexin-Diet-SupplementThis diet pill contains many powerful and patented natural ingredients which are touted on the internet these days. Despite that, it is important to remember that a list of ingredients does not necessarily a good diet pill make. Research seems to indicate, however, that with Abidexin, the ingredient list is thorough and effective.

The formula used in Abidexin is an attractive mixture of natural ingredients which have all in and of themselves undergone rigorous clinical testing over the years. They have all shown benefits which are associated with weight loss promoters.


The main ingredient found in Abidexin is something called Irvingia Gabonensis. This compound is known to satisfy cravings and help lower cholesterol levels when taken consistently. This fruit which originates in Africa, has also been shown to increase both leptin and adiponectin, two hormones which help reduce the body’s hunger signals and burn fat. In one study, participants who took Irvingia Gabonensis reported feeling less hungry and were able to lose a total of about 28 pounds more than the control participants. This product has been strongly marketed by companies who make diet pills. It still remains one of the best products on the market to help people lose weight.

Abidexin also contains Phytosome green tea which has evolved into one of the most well studied all natural product used and promoted for weight loss. Most experts would agree that green tea is helpful for weight loss, but they also agree that Phystosome green tea is especially helpful.

Abidexin also contains green coffee bean extract. This is a compound derived from coffee beans before they are roasted and processed to be turned into ground coffee. When coffee beans are being processed (roasted) the amount of cholorgenic acid found in them is greatly reduced. This product, cholorgenic acid, has been shown to greatly enhance the weight loss process.

Overall, Abidexin is known to contain 7 ingredients which have been proven to aid in weight loss. This product is able to deliver great results without compromising safety.

#2 Phenphedrine

Without a doubt, Phenphedrine is the best feel good while losing weight available on the market today. This product is not for you if you just want to lose a “little” bit of weight. This serious product is for people who want to lose twenty pounds or more. If you are not in that category, you will probably want to look at some other diet pills because Phenphedrine will most likely be too strong for you. You will probably just end up wanting to return it. So, save yourself a little bit of hassle and continue reading down the list.

Why is Phenphedrine so powerful?

phenphedrineThe active ingredient in this diet pill is something called Chromax which is said to relieve hunger and decrease cravings. In one clinical study on Chromax, participants consumed about 365 fewer calories per day and reported that their feelings of being hungry were dramatically reduced. This product also produces a feeling of hunger so that the person who is taking it will be tempted to eat less.

Another one of its active ingredients is something called Phenylethylamine or PEA for short. This is a compound which has very similar structures to catecholamine neurotransmitters which are normally found in every human being. It is also found in dark chocolate. PEA has similarities to the same chemicals found in our brains which cause us to experience feelings of euphoria and extreme pleasure.

Another active ingredient in this product is something called DiCaffeine Malate. This is caffeine which has been “upgraded” to the next highest level. This means that is gives the user all the benefits of weight loss and none of the negative side effects.

Caffeine Anhydrous is, quite simply, a different form of pure caffeine. This will give you the energy boost you normally associate with diet pills. but will not cause the “crash” that most other diet pills will have.

#3 Obesitrol

obesitrol-weight-lossThis product claims to boost your metabolism which will, in turn, help you burn more fat faster and also prevent your body from storing newly consumed extra calories as fat. The makers also claim that it will help control your appetite so that you will feel less hungry and not be inclined to snack during the day.

This product also contains Irvingia Gabonensis which is also known as “mango fruit”. This product has been shown to increase the body’s natural sensitivity to leptin which is what gives your brain the signal that you are full. Participants in a study of Obesitrol lost an average of about 28 pounds (and a total of about 6.7 inches around their waist for a total of 18.7% of their full body fat.

Obesitrol also contains something known as Lady’s Mantle which has been used in Arab and Greek cultures for hundreds of years to help people’s metabolic processes continue to run smoothly.

As well, it contains another compound known as Cissus Quadrangularis or CQ which has long been used to treat conditions such as tendinitis and discomfort of the bones. Researchers believe that CQ’s best ability is the antioxidant properties it contains.

#4 Testoripped

testorippedMost dieters want to get the maximum amount they can from their weight loss program without completely bankrupting themselves. Makes sense to me. There are better ways to achieve your weight loss goals without spending a fortune to do it. That’s why Testoripped is a good option. It is crammed full of tons of good things which will move your weight loss plan down the road. This single little diet pill  will boost your energy levels to epic proportions, help you create new lean muscle and increase your strength in unbelievable ways you never thought possible before.

How Does TestoRipped Help You Get Into Shape?

This product claims to be based on years of experience in the weight loss and supplemental products fields. It says that it will help you  increase your testosterone which will help you increase your lean muscle. And as we all know, lean muscle is the fat burning engine of our body. This product may not be ideal for women, but if you are interested in trying some different diet pill products, this might turn out to be the product you’ve been looking for.

#5 DecaSlim

DecaSlimIf you’ve been struggling with weight loss for some time, you might want to consider a diet pill called DecaSlim. This diet pill weight loss includes adding many of the 10 so-called Super-foods to your daily food consumption. And actually, just doing this alone will promote some serious weight loss.

These super-foods include things previously discussed on this blog: salmon, nuts, things like broccoli and cauliflower.

Many people report losing as much as 14 pounds of body fat after just thirty days of taking these diet pills and following their recommended diet. And, for most people, that body fat was in places they had struggled to lose it for years.

The biggest complaint most people  have about taking these diet pills and following the recommended diet plan is that these super-foods can be costly. Most people will definitely balk at spending upwards of $10.00 on one salmon filet which will give them just two meals. Many also claim that following this diet plan is very difficult to do. That’s not uncommon for most people who are trying to fundamentally change their eating habits. Change is always difficult no matter how big or how small.

#6 Phentirmene

What Is Phentirmene?

phentirmenePhentermine is very similar to amphetamines because it works as an appetite suppressant by targeting the body’s central nervous system. This product is used in conjunction with a diet plan as well as specific behavioral modification tools to help people with obesity problems and its side effects of high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol levels and diabetes lose their excess weight once and for all.

The makers of the product claim that it is a one of a kind item which can help obese people. One thing of note is that this product can  have some pretty hefty side effects which include but are not limited to severe  headaches, fainting and insomnia. It has also been shown to be habit forming when taken over prolonged periods of time.

Does Phentirmene Really Work?

This product contains PEA which is also called “The Love Drug” because of its amphetamine-like properties. It gives the user an extreme sense of euphoria and increases their pleasurable feelings. It is also the active ingredient contained in chocolate.

When using Phentiremene you will likely experience an increased sense of vitality and a highly enhanced mood. Your appetite will also be decreased a great deal which is one of the things which will help you lose weight.

#7 Anoretix

Anoretix-Caffeine-dietWhen creating Anoretix, the lab was attempting to come up with a diet pill that would out perform Alli, Ephedra, Phentermine combined. Because this diet pill contains 9 ingredients specifically patented for weight loss, it would seem that they have succeeded. Most people who take this diet pill would agree. In a very short time, they see that their metabolism has really revved up and that they are quickly losing fat without those annoying and distracting hunger pangs they’ve always had to deal with in the past. And because this product contains NO caffeine, it is very safe to use.

Another key ingredient found in Anoretix is something called Glucomannan. This is one of the things that sends a signal to the brain saying that you are full and signalling you to want to stop eating. In many people who are obese, this is something they lack. This product will also help reduce cholesterol levels.

Anoretix also contains dandelion root which is a completely natural herb that is used to target the liver, one of the organs that is most likely to harbour toxins in the body. It has many antioxidant properties which will boost your immune system and help your liver heal from any damage it has incurred from years of accumulated toxins.

All the products contained in Anoretix are completely natural. You will not be ingesting any potentially harmful chemicals to help yourself lose weight.

#8 7-Day Detox

7-day-detoxMany people who are actively pursuing weight loss will also, on occasion undergo a total body detox/cleanse. This product will help you get the slim, healthy and trim body you’ve been trying to achieve forever.

It is a good way to rid your body of all the nasty toxins you have accumulated over time. These toxins will inevitably keep you from getting the right amount of exercise you need to be able to really lose weight.

The product contains potent, natural products that will safely clean your system and help you shed the pounds you’ve been trying to lose unsuccessfully. Try though you might to lose the weight, the added number of toxins in your body may be, in fact, what is preventing you from doing so.The 7-Day Detox pills will help you flush all those toxins out of your body.

What is contained in 7-Day Detox?

This product is largely made up of something called Chromium Polynicotinate. This is a 100% natural mineral which suppresses appetite and helps naturally regulate the body’s insulin production. It will also help dramatically decrease the amount of fat storage your body will do. Most users of 7-Day Detox experience an increase in their natural metabolism rates and they soon begin to see the extra fat literally drop off their body.

It also contains Caffeine Anhydrous, a pure caffeine derivative which contains zero water and/or additives. This by-product of coffee bean has been shown to boost energy and help in weight loss without revving the body up unnecessarily.

It also contains Psyllium husk which is  thoroughly ingestable fiber that helps purify the body via the gastrointestinal tract. It will help the body be able to better absorb water and improve your overall digestive health.

#9 Dieter’s Cheating Caps

Three Very Powerful Ingredients Found In Dieter’s Cheating Caps

dieters-cheating-capsOne of the main powerful ingredients found in Dieter’s Cheating Caps is Glucomannan. As previously discussed, this ingredient plays a dramatic role on influencing the body’s natural appetite. Glucomannan signals your brain that your stomach has taken in enough food and you are now full. This is the main thing that helps you lose weight while you are taking this product. While you are taking this product it is crucial that you consume lots of water as indicated in the directions.

This product also contains Chitosan which is a natural fiber which completely binds to fat in the stomach and prevents it from being absorbed. It is then removed from the body as waste. When you are taking Chitosan, you will quickly notice  a drop in your weight and fat percentages. When your body is prevented from storing fat, it burns it as a way of generating energy.

Another key ingredient in this product is something called Phaseolus Vulgaris. This is more commonly referred to as white kidney bean extract. It  has been scientifically proven to prevent the body’s natural tendency to absorb starches which promote fat development. This is one of the most effective carbohydrate blockers available on the market today. It is effective against all types of carbohydrates from pasta to baked goods to breads and even starchy vegetables.

#10 Alli

What is Alli?

Alli is something called Xenical which is provided in a reduced strength format. This drug, Xenical, is used to treat people with obesity. It can be purchased over the counter without a prescription and is intended to be used in conjunction with regular exercise and a low-fat diet.

Does Alli work?

alli-diet-pillsYes, and no. There have been some reports of people who have sustained serious liver damage by using this product. It works by decreasing the amount of fat which is absorbed by the intestines. This is achieved through the use of an enzyme called Lipase. Lipase helps break fat down into much smaller components so that  the body can use it later as fat. Alli works by disabling the body’s ability to use Lipase and thereby forces the body to excrete the fat through the waste.

Most people who use Alli experience only moderate weight loss. What they will experience is massive bowel movements which can be greatly disturbing to some users. The average user lost about 7 pounds which isn’t bad but not a great return on a product that is relatively expensive.

I would say that the jury is still out on something like Alli. If all you are looking for is short-term gain, then by all means go ahead and give it a whirl. If you are looking for longer term, more sustainable weight loss, then you will want to steer clear of this product.

Unless you are using Alli along with a weight loss diet plan, you will most likely end up being profoundly disappointed in your end game results. I also do not believe that a product like this should be used on any kind of long-term basis because it forces your body to excrete many needed vitamins and minerals along with the fat that is being expelled in the form of a bowel movement. This kind of product, if used on a long-term basis can lead to fairly serious malnutrition issues as well as weight loss. Personally, I would be very leery of any product that is going to send me into the bathroom upwards of ten times per day. Some things just aren’t worth it in my humble opinion. But if you’re the adventurous type, the go ahead.

One thing that’s extremely important when contemplating weight loss is that there really are not any easy fixes. Weight loss can be a lot of plain hard work. And many times if feels like you’re just struggling uphill all the time. But don’t lose hope. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and I guarantee you that it is not from an oncoming train! Taking diet pills may or may not be your answer. If it works for you and the long-term health risks are worth it to you, then for sure go ahead and try some of these products. You may be able to lose a little bit of weight. The biggest hurdle you will probably face will being able to maintain your weight loss. That’s the biggest problem for almost everyone who manages to lose some weight. For most of us, and especially those of us who are troubled eaters to begin with, it’s always the maintenance issues which get us. But there will be lots more information on this posted on this blog in the future so stay tuned. As I’ve said before, you’ll want to come here and come here often. There are lots more weight loss and maintenance tips to come!
