Food Additives

Aug 25th 2014 at 2:14 AM

Overweight - a problem for millions of people. But to date, the Ministry of Health reported a few drugs for the treatment of obesity. Nature, as we know, abhors a vacuum - as a result of the market there are a variety of supplements.

Most of these "miracle" drugs that promise in advertising "fine-tune the body," are common laxative. With such "miracles" very great opportunity to completely disrupt the intestinal flora itself. But to lose weight with laxatives difficult.

Another way we offer sellers of dietary supplements. Many supplements contain psychotropic or harsh elements. The most dangerous to health - the so-called "

Thai tablets" that are banned in many countries. They really discourage human appetite. Not only. Since their structure includes at least a couple of drugs such tablets impair memory and disrupt calcium metabolism affect the cardiovascular system.

Medicine, as it is known, should be treated human. Manufacturers of dietary supplements are fond of saying that they are a means for weight loss, usually registered under the guise of tea or tonic collection, still is "almost real medicine", and it is called "tea" for one reason only - it all natural, without chemicals.

But whether such approval argument? Say, Socrates was poisoned hemlock - the most that neither is a natural, but deadly to humans plant. Today, any biological dictionary full of descriptions of dozens of deaths to humans "herbs". So that the "natural and natural" does not mean "useful".

Ephedra - herb of Chinese origin similar to Russia's growing horsetail. In the list of raw materials used for the production of drugs, it often appears next to the opium poppy and cannabis. Its "therapeutic" effect is due to the fact that it stimulates the release of adrenaline into the bloodstream, accelerating fat breakdown and metabolism. Price emissions - increased blood pressure.

A significant amount of dietary supplements promise a tonic effect. This ginseng and Siberian ginseng and Chinese magnolia vine, and Pantocrinum and rantorin.

Use of these compounds allows for greater energy consumption and therefore increase the effect of diet. The most serious results they achieve in another area - increasing blood pressure and causing a rapid pulse.

There are also additives, caffeine. On the market are mostly present in the form of extracts from the leaves of the tropical plant guarana. Caffeine is known to stimulate energy expenditure and thereby enhances the flow of fat mass. However, caffeine increases the workload on the heart and can cause high blood pressure. Moreover, long known that caffeine improves appetite. It is a vicious circle.

There are vitamins, such as ascorbic acid and B vitamins that are involved in the oxidation of fat. But multivitamin preparations are usually applied for this purpose, and may contain vitamins, blocking fat breakdown, particularly vitamin PP or nicotinic acid.
