There are now a few weight loss pills made for women that can be found online and even in local stores.¬† The truth is that most weight loss pills and supplements can be used for men or women and have about the same results.
Slim Quick is an over-the-counter fat burner capsule that claims to be specifically for women.¬† This product is sold online for $39.99 per 120 capsules.¬† Slim Quick also comes with a diet and exercise program for you to follow.¬†
The ingredient list for Slim Quick includes:¬†
- Folic Acid
- Vitamin B-12
- Vitamin B-6
- Vitamin D
- Green Tea
- Hoodia Gordonii stems
- Chaste Tree
- Asian Ginseng
- Brown Seaweed
- Yerba Mate¬†
So what does this mean?¬† This means it is not much different than many other over-the-counter diet pills.¬† It does have Green Tea, which has been shown to increase metabolism and curb your appetite.¬† It also contains soy, which is a good protein for women, although the amount is probably not significant enough to have a real effect.¬† It also has some good basic vitamins, which is a benefit.¬†
Fat Burners for Women
Fat Burners for Women is the name of another over-the-counter weight loss pill that can be found online.¬† The average price is $19.99 for a bottle of 120 pills.¬† This product claims to be a metabolism accelerating pill.
The ingredient list for Fat Burners includes:¬†
- Chromium Picolinate
- White Willow Bark
- Gotu Kola
- Essential Fatty Acid Complex
Fat Burners for Women is also not very different than other products on the market.¬† It does have some ingredients that may be helpful and healthy for your body, but nothing significant that stands out as being any different or more beneficial for women.¬†
The Bottom Line
There are basically three categories of weight loss pills for diet and obesity.¬† These categories are natural herbal products, over-the-counter products, and prescription products.¬† While prescription options are a little safer because they are monitored and prescribed by a doctor, they are very addictive and have some of the same side effects as the others.
Over-the-counter varieties are the riskiest type of pills for women to take, because there are no regulations and no guarantees of the true ingredients.¬† Really, the best thing you can do is to monitor your calorie intake closely, adopt a regular exercise program, and use diet products very sparingly, if at all.
