Is there a safe and natural Reductil alternative?
Reductil was once a commonly prescribed appetite suppressant which helped users cut calorie intake by as much as 40%.
Now however due to a blanket ban on EU sales, many patients have been left wondering if there’s a suitable, yet safe Reductil alternative.
Why has Reductil been banned?
The active ingredient found in Reductil – sibutramine has been linked to over 1100 cases of severe reactions and is believed to be responsible for an astonishing 17 deaths. Sibutramine is a drug based chemical which acts on the central nervous system and decreases regular appetite.
Are there any safe Reductil alternatives?
While there are some alternatives to Reductil which do indeed suppress the appetite, none will offer the same level of appetite suppression of the drug sibutramine. However one particular appetite suppressant does come highly recommended time and time again, owing to its 100% natural composition and reputation for long term safety – Hoodia Gordonii.
While many dieters will have no doubt heard of this natural plant extract before, Hoodia can often be overlooked because of its “herbal” nature. However, Hoodia has been the subject of a £20 million study by Pfizer which proved beyond reasonable doubt that the extract can strongly suppress appetite for hours at a time.
Hoodia Gordonii is actually a cactus plant which grows on the plains of the Kalahari Desert in South Africa. It’s extract contains an organic chemical known as P57 which when consumed mimics the natural chemicals our hypothalamus gland produces when we eat a large meal. The hypothalamus is the part of the brain which regulates appetite.
Hoodia – A great choice for natural appetite suppression
First identified in the 1960’s by a team of African scientists, Hoodia remains a key ingredient in many weight loss formulations around the world.
As more and more drug based prescription diet pills are taken off the shelves each year, Hoodia continues to gain popularity for it’s ability to safely suppress appetite without negative side effects.
