Did you happen to look up the ingredients?

Linghzi - Used in Chinese medicine, may help stabalize blood sugar, lower cholesterol. If you take ANY drugs for heart issues though would be a bit concerned about the effects it may have.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lingzhi

Ebony - no clue, could not find anything on this.

Fox nut - Looks to be an analgesic, may have blood thinning properties? Again, careful if heart medications are taken or if have problems with thin blood.

Tuckahoe - diuretic (lose water weight). Again, something to be careful with if on heart medications.

Seman pruni - laxative. Not sure if it is habit forming, it may be.

dioscorea - Used to increase appetite? Interesting

Wheat Germ - Fiber - helps feel fuller.


Given the ingredients, doesn't seem promising and may be worrisome if anyone who uses it is on heart related medications. I'd be very iffy about pills that contain natural laxatives because they can screw up with your system.

Nelie - have I told you lately how much I appreciate your posts? You are a GEM around here! You take the time to research things and post such helpful and un-biased information.


Thank you!

Thank You Nelie. I appreciate the info. Thank God I don't take any medication or have any problems with my heart. I will take a deeper look into it. Before I decide whether I want 2 purchase them or not.

mjluva829~ Please don't take this the wrong way, but from this and other posts, I've noticed that you seem to be looking for a "quick fix" in pill form. I would recommend you try a healthy diet and exercise to lose weight vs. an herbal supplement. Eventually, you'll stop taking these supplements and if you don't have healthy habits in place the weight will just come back. Not to mention, that there have not been enough studies on most of these products and there are safety concerns.

I would not advise taking any kind of supplement to help with weight loss with out your doctors permission. I know this isn't what you want to hear, but herbal supplements aren't always the best way to go (herb are drugs too, they just aren't synthetic.)

Zenor does have good advice. My advice to anyone who tries to look towards supplements for weight loss is to go read the maintainers forum. There are many people in that forum and they have lost anywhere from 10 lbs to over 200 lbs. One thing in common is that they lost weight, are maintaining it and didn't use supplements to do it.
