Herbal fat burners have been used in Asian countries for generations. Ma Huang and Ginseng have been used in China for 100’s of years. Hoodia, from Africa, has been successfully used as both an appetite suppressant and stimulant. The side effects with these mainly occur when you start to add chemicals. The most common herbal diet pills are either liquid or gel capsules. Another type is delivered straight to the blood stream by putting it underneath your tongue. This type of herbal diet pill is mixed with a carrier and has quite an unpleasant taste.
Herbal carb blockers (such as Dietrine) work by neutralizing the digestive enzyme before it can convert starch into glucose. This way a large portion of the calories contained in the carbohydrates are passed through the body without being absorbed. Another type of herbal diet pill such as Fat Blast Extreme works by binding the fat and sugars together. Then they form a mass too large to digest and hence are also passed through the body without being absorbed.
Metabolism boosters help to stimulate the thyroid to increase the fat burning process. An under active thyroid causes weight gain, while an overactive thyroid causes weight loss. The better quality herbal diet pills contain a combination of Manganese, Selenium, and Chromium. Manganese contains enzymes for energy production. Chromium aids in building muscle and promoting weight loss. Selenium helps to increase metabolic rate.
Appetite suppressants should generally be avoided unless you have a great deal of weight to lose. Most herbal diet pills that act as appetite suppressants can actually have negative side effects, and some have been banned by the FDA. Any products containing Subitramine, Rimonabant, Phenytoin, or Pheolphthalein should be avoided. Proactol is one of the very few herbal diet pills that has actually had enough research done on it to be considered safe. Like some of the carb blockers, Proactol works by binding the fats into an indigestible mass; also it empties the stomach more slowly, which the brain perceives as being full.
