Medicines for weight loss
Excess carbohydrates in the diet, sedentary lifestyle, endocrine disorders - all this leads to the appearance of excess weight.When the body weight increases by 20% or more, they speak about the development of obesity.If a large weight represents a real threat to the life of the patient, the doctor can include medicines in the program of integrated weight loss .
To combat obesity, a group of drugs called anorectics is used. These are psychotropic drugs that reduce appetite.Representatives of this group are such drugs as Sibutramine, Fenfluramine, etc.
How does anoreptics work, in particular, Sibutramine ?Sibutramine is an inhibitor of the reuptake of serotonin and norepinephrine.That is, the drug increases the concentration of these neurotransmitters in the blood.High concentration of serotonin increases, prolongs the feeling of satiety.As a result, the appetite and the amount of food consumed decrease.
It would seem that the ideal scheme of action: a person drinks a tablet and grows thin, without experiencing hunger.But not everything is so simple, because serotonin does not affect only the centers of satiation and hunger.Serotonin receptors are scattered throughout the body and the cardiovascular and nervous systems are particularly sensitive to the action of this neurotransmitter.That is, Sibutramine inevitably affects other body systems. By the way on the action of Sibutramine is similar to amphetamine.The use of Sibutramine is fraught with the development of serious side effects, as will be described in more detail below.
Important! In most countries, sibutramine is used with a restriction.The drug is on the state list of potent substances of the Russian Federation.
Popular Weight Loss Supplements
LindaXa, Li Yes, Yes Lee, Bileit. .. All these are the names of popular Chinese dietary supplements for weight loss.It should be noted that all dietary supplements that are imported into the territory of the Russian Federation must undergo state registration.This procedure confirms that the manufacturer's declared composition corresponds to the true, and the means is safe.
All dietary supplements that have passed the state registration can be viewed in the official register http: //fp.crc.ru/gosregfr/ .None of the above supplements have passed state registration .So it only remains to guess what the ingredients really are in the preparation.
Although these funds do not pass state registration and can not be sold on the territory of the Russian Federation, they can be easily purchased on the Internet.Sellers talk about what kind of miracle cures they are, how they help to lose weight quickly and easily.In general, they do everything to sell more goods and earn money.
Let's look at the detailed instructions for the popular weight loss agent Li Da.The manufacturer promises that the drug will reduce fat deposits, help quickly get rid of personal pounds, while not toxic and does not cause side effects.
Manufacturer's stated Li composition:
- Poria is coconut;
- Fruit of cola;
- Garcinia Cambodian;
- Fruits of tangerine gold;
- Seeds of fenugreek hay.
The manufacturer claims that the herbal composition suppresses the appetite and enhances the sense of satiety. In this case, no clinical trial conducted has confirmed such an effect in these plants.
But that's the paradox. .. People who take popular Chinese dietary supplements for weight loss note that the appetite really decreases and they lose several kilograms per week.So why is the appetite reduced if the composition declared by the manufacturer does not have components that can cause such an effect? The conclusion suggests itself - these dietary supplements contain anorexigenic medicines, which the manufacturer keeps silent about.And in most cases this is Sibutramine .
So, the American government organization FDA conducted its own study, which confirmed the presence of potent substances in certain drugs for weight loss.In particular, in the popular Li da, Sibutramine was discovered.More information about the study can be found here.
