Question Question About All of These Things I Can't Even Pronounce--But Are Supposed to Help

Hi, just wondering if anyone has any info on whether the following things really have any benefit in a weight program. A friend of mine gave me a few samples of a packet of citrus drink you put with water that have the following:
Calcium Pyruvate
Chromium Picolinate
Garcinia Cambogia
Vitamin B-6, B-12, B-3, C
Garcinia Cambogia
Burdock Root Tea
Licorice Root Tea
Fennel Seed Tea
Peppermint Tea
Stevia (sweetener)
Purified Water and Preservatives

Packet is about 2Tsp. of liquid you mix with 8 oz. of water.

Thanks in advance for any info!!!!!!!

None of them really do anything. I have been reading up on supplements for 2 years now and nothing on the list really has any thermogenic qualities. Even true thermogenics...ephedra, ma huang, caffeine...really only work for a short period of time and then your body adjusts to it. However, they do have some appetite suppressant qualities and some metabolism booster so they will work from 3-21 days. Then they taper off.

Thanks Susan for taking the time to reply-I have noticed that they help with the appetite supressing, but I guess that I was REALLY hoping they were a "magic bullet" for helping burn fat! I appreciate the information!
