If you are looking for a diet pill that is proven to work on every person who is trying to lose weight, unfortunately, that doesn’t exist. Not in either the prescription or over the counter markets. That’s one of the main reasons many people find it very challenging to find the right diet pill for their needs.
That said, there is a trick to making sure you improve your chances of choosing the right diet pill on the very first try. First, you need to decide if prescription or nonprescription pills are right for you. That decision needs to be made with a doctor as the only legal way to obtain prescription pills is through a doctor’s recommendation.
Next, it’s up to you to know you’re selecting a diet pill with the right ingredients. Though there are many ingredients that are very promising until they have science to back them, it’s impossible to know exactly how much of those substances to use to make them effective, whether they might conflict with other ingredients, drugs or medical conditions, or if there is a risk of addiction or side effects.
If you’re looking for a head start in identifying ingredients in diet pills that have scientific research to back them, consider the following:
• NeOpuntia® (Opuntia Ficus-Indica) –This ingredient has been studied to better understand the way it works as a fat binder and to determine its impact on weight loss and other conditions related to obesity. Studies into this ingredient have been published in the Advances in Therapy journal (2007), the Nutrition journal (2015) and Current Therapeutic Research (2014), among others.
• Caffeine anhydrous (1,3,7 trimethylxanthine) – This ingredient has been extremely widely researched for a range of different effects on the body, including energy boosting, as a fat burner, and even for appetite suppressing benefits. The list of research on this ingredient is extensive, including one in the Journal of Food Science (2010), the Journal of the International Association for the Study of Obesity (1994), in addition to the Obesity journal (2005).
• Green tea extract – This ingredient has been studied for a vast spectrum of different potential health benefits. This includes everything from mental clarity, to possible cancer fighting factors and support for weight loss through fat burning, fat blocking and other potential benefits. Studies have been published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (1999), as well as the Phytomedicine journal (2002).
