Herbal diet pills, or non-prescription diet pills, have really popped onto the weight loss scene within the last few years. Unlike prescription diets pills, which can only be obtained from your GP, herbal diet pills are freely available to buy online or over the counter. Walk into any chemist or big supermarket and there will be a section devoted to slimming tablets, diet pills, weight loss supplements or whatever else you want to call them. On the internet there are well over 400 different slimming pills. Whether we like it not, herbal weight loss supplements have made their way into mainstream society and the number of people using them is on the rise.
But the big question is, are herbal diet pills safe and effective? The answer to this question is yes and no. Yes, because a small percentage of slimming tablets are safe and effective. No, because around 90% of slimming tablets available are not effective and within that 90% around 20% are dangerous.
So in total that leaves us with around 70% of diet pills being ineffective, 20% being dangerous and only 10% being safe and effective.
The question probably on your lips now is “why is it that so many ineffective and dangerous slimming tablets are freely available to buy online?” The answer is a simple but infuriating one; unlike prescription diet pills that are governed by strict rules and regulations, the herbal diet pill industry has no governing body to monitor and regulate the production of diet pills. What this prima diet pills uk is that quite literally anybody can go and make a herbal weight loss supplement and sell it.
Over the years, there have been many reported cases of people experiencing very bad side-effects after taking herbal weight loss supplements, and this is because there have been a few cases in which diet pills have been homemade in the garage or garden shed, by amateurs wanting to make a quick buck out of the diet pill craze. These diet supplements have often contained nothing more than fillers such as sawdust, or other bulking agents than have led to adverse side-effects. However, these cases are very rare.
The vast majority of slimming tablets, the 70% that fall into the ineffective category, are made by companies wishing to cash in on the diet pill market which is worth over a billion worldwide. The lack of rules and regulations enables these companies to get away with filling their tablets with cheap ingredients that either don’t work or are not used in high enough amounts to have any effect. The companies are then allowed to lie and claim that their diet pill contains the best weight loss ingredients.
