The Newest Weight Loss Craze – Artichoke Pills

Posted Aug 06 2010 12:00am

People have been asking me to research this new “natural” weight loss pill for several weeks now.  During that time period I watched and heard of their great success with this product.  It’s all natural because it comes from artichokes.  It is also fortified with B vitamins.  I searched high and low to look for any side effects both online and with clients and friends.

The artichoke pills help to speed up bile production which can aid in constipation and water retention.  It has also been proven to help with bloating, gas, as well as nausea.  Here is some more info from webmd.

Artichoke is used to stimulate the flow of bile from the liver , and this is thought to help reduce the symptoms of heartburn and alcohol “hangover.” Artichoke is also used for high cholesterol , irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), kidney problems, anemia , fluid retention ( edema ), arthritis , bladder infections , and liver problems ( source ).

As a side note, clients have told me that when they sweat, they can smell the artichoke coming out in their pores.  While researching I also found that 26% of people taking this supplement report acid reflux symptoms and heartburn.  Most reviews on this product say that it’s strong, natural appetite suppressant formula is what helps them to lose weight.

This product seems to have little side effects.  Make sure that you drink plenty of water with this pill to stay hydrated.  My main concern with this product is that people may not eat enough calories.  This will actually put your body into a fat storing mode and cause your body to burn your valuable muscle mass while in this deprived state.  If you are considering taking this pill you should

Make sure you don’t become completely dependent on these pills.  They may help you lose weight but there may also be side affects that could be more long term.  Hopefully, this isn’t the next phen phen.
