Dr Rosemary’s Tea Therapy is a nonprescription dieting supplement that comes in the form of a beverage. This is appealing to people who don’t like to take pills or who have a hard time swallowing them. In this particular case, this product is designed to work as a detox supplement, under the notion that eliminating built up toxins within the body will help to kickstart a diet or revitalize one that is already underway.

The herbal ingredients in Dr Rosemary’s Tea Therapy are all caffeine free and organic. This is also good news for many dieters who are sensitive to stimulants and who are looking for an alternative that will provide them with results but that won’t leave them struggling with side effects such as jitters, nervousness and headaches.

This is sold as a loose tea as opposed to one that comes in bags, but every purchase is given (randomly) either an infuser or a measuring spoon to help to equip the dieter with some of the items that will be needed in order to properly prepare a loose tea.

At the time of the writing of this review, the ingredients that were listed on the official webpage for this product were 100% Organic: Chamomile, Peppermint, Senna Leaf, Black Pepper, Cinnamon, Cardamom (which was misspelled as “cardamom”), Fennel Seeds, Ginger Root, Hibiscus Flowers, Lemongrass, Milk Thistle, Rooibos Tea.

From the look of this tea, it appears that it was designed to be very soothing to the mind and body and easy on digestion. It also looks as though it has some ingredients that are known for their anti-inflammatory properties. While it is unlikely that this product will directly promote weight loss, it could be a calming beverage to enjoy at the end of a long day, after eating dinner as it can help to ease digestion and calm the user down before bedtime.

According to the website, this tea will also help to reduce cravings for sweets, which could also be beneficial if it is enjoyed in the evening, as it could potentially help to reduce evening snacking before bedtime.

Therefore, while this tea may actually have a range of enjoyable benefits, it is not likely that actual measurable weight loss or even the reduction of toxins from the body will be among the direct results of drinking it. Anyone choosing this beverage should do so simply because they enjoy it and would like to have it as a part of an overall healthful lifestyle.

Miracle Diet Drops are an over the counter weight loss formulation that have been designed to be administered as a liquid instead of as a pill such as a capsule or tablet. While this doesn’t change the nature of the product in terms of the type of the type of benefit that it claims to provide, it could be more appealing than pills to dieters who find it challenging to be able to swallow tablets and capsules.

The official website explains that when a dieter purchases this product, he or she doesn’t just end up with a product but he or she also gains a membership to the dieting club through the company’s website. Whether or not this is actually considered to be a feature to buying the product is up to the individual dieter, as the website is quite rough, it is not regularly updated and maintained, and portions of it are quite hard to read as the background and text colors often approach one another. The text is filled with various types of mistakes and errors, to the extent that it may be believed that it was written in another language and translated with some form of software. If that is not the case, the people who are being the writing of the content did not take much care in terms of its accuracy and they have never gone back to repair it.

The website and membership aside, what most people would want to know about Miracle Diet Drops is whether or not they will actually work to help speed up weight loss or make it easier to accomplish.

After consulting with a doctor, the next thing that a dieter should do is look at the ingredients that make up the formulation. Although it took some searching on the website, the list of ingredients was finally located in the FAQ section. They appear to have been added as a kind of afterthought, as the entire format of their entry is different from the rest of the site.

At the time that this review was written, they were listed as: l-Carnitine, L-Omithine, L-Arginine, L-Glutamine, Tryosine, Tryptophan, Beta-Alanine, Green Tea Leaf Extract Panax Ginseng, Ginger Root, Garcinia, Eleuthero (Siberian ginseng), Capsicum, and Raspberry Ketone.

No research was cited in order to help to back up the claims that are made about these ingredients and any ability that they might have to make fat loss faster and easier. All of these substances are found quite commonly in the over the counter weight loss industry, but only some have been researched with weight loss in mind. Among them, only a small few have shown positive results in promoting weight loss in limited research.

Metabosyn is a type of diet pill that is designed to help people to be able to lose weight. The company behind this product is NutriPharm, LLC, which is a large manufacturer of supplements within this category and that is based in Salt Lake City, Utah. That particular location is known to be a hub for very low quality health and weight loss category supplements. That said, just because this product is made in a certain city, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it will not work. It is important to give these diet pills a fair examination before discounting them, altogether.

To start, the company, itself, has had many different customer complaints registered against it, online. However, those complaints appear to be focused primarily on products other than Metabosyn, so there is still a chance that this could be the diamond in the rough.

The product is manufactured in the United States and it can be purchased exclusively within that country. The official website for the product does not offer international shipping options. At the time that this review was written, each bottle contained a month’s supply of the product and it cost $69.95, in addition to the $4.95 domestic shipping fee.

The ingredients that make up the Metabosyn formula were listed as being: green coffee bean extract, Chromax, raspberry ketone, lipolide SC, phenyethylamine, caffeine anhydrous, evodiamine, humulus lupulus, methyl synephrine, ginger root, quercetin, vitamin B12, and bioperine.

There are a few concerns that should start to rise when looking at this list of ingredients. The first is that this is a relatively long list, so it is hard to tell whether or not it is possible for enough of the ingredients to be used to produce any benefit – if there is any to be had. However, the second problem is that there is a potentially dangerous combination within this list. That combination is between the methyl synephrine and the caffeine anhydrous.

Caffeine anhydrous, on its own, is usually considered to be a well tolerated stimulant that is safe to use for most dieters on a regular basis. In fact, it has been extensively researched and it has been connected with a number of weight loss supporting benefits such as a metabolic boost, increased alertness, and even appetite suppression for some people.

On the other hand, synephrine is an ingredient that has been associated with some potentially dangerous side effects, to the point that the FDA has warned dieters not to use supplements that contain that ingredient. Furthermore, a growing body of research has shown that when synephrine is combined with other stimulants, especially caffeine, the risk of those dangerous side effects – such as stroke or heart attack – climbs significantly.

Prescopodene is an over the counter weight loss supplement pill that has been designed to assist dieters in their effort to drop their excess pounds more easily and rapidly than would be possible with diet and exercise alone. The official website lists three different company names behind this product. These are Drop Down Ltd, Fittiny Health Ltd. and JC Arnica Corp.

When looking into those companies, JC Arnica Corp is a business based in Panama that has locations in the United States, New Zealand, Australia, Panama, Philippines, Canada, Romania, and the United Kingdom. This was the only company among the three for which an official website could be found. The Prescopodene diet pill is listed among the products it produces, on that official website, as well as on the pill’s own official website.

Fittiny Health Ltd. is a company based in the United Kingdom. It was first registered on February 8, 2013. Drop Down Ltd. is also registered in the United Kingdom and was created on the same day as Fittiny Health, though their addresses are entirely different. Both Fittiny Health and Drop Down are currently registered as active but dormant.

Therefore, the information for this review was gleaned from the official Prescopodene website, as well as the official website of JC Arnica Corp. Typically, after speaking with a doctor, the first step in reviewing a diet pill is to look into its ingredients. What was interesting about this process in the case of Prescopodene is that the ingredients are listed differently on the official pill website and the official manufacturer’s website.

The pill’s website lists the ingredients as being: green tea, grape seed extract, vitamin C and B6, quercetin, magnesium, L-tyrosine, hordenine, octopamine, tyramine, ginger root, and pantothenic acid.

On the other hand, the manufacturer’s website lists the ingredients as: green tea extract, DMAE, tyrosine, pyridoxine HCP, yerba mate, vitamin C, magnesium, pantothenic acid, ginger root, grape seed extract, cocoa extract, and Avantra Z.

Oddly, neither one of those lists is all that impressive, as there is only one ingredient on both lists – the green tea – that has any substantial scientific or medical evidence to suggest that it will produce the outcomes that it promises. That said, the list on the pill’s site is favorable to that of the manufacturer’s site, if only because it does not contain Avantra Z, which is made from bitter orange (citrus aurantium). That substance contains synephrine, against which the FDA has released a consumer safety warning.

It is notable that the official website of the manufacturer said that this product was created with “extensive testing and landmark clinical trials,” but it did not provide any of the details of that research.

System-Six, created by Irwin Naturals, is one of those odd weight loss pills that is mentioned in many different places online, but isn’t actually all that easy to find in terms of actually making a purchase. This is just one of the reasons that makes it important for you to get to know whether or not it will be worth your while to try to hunt it down and buy a bottle for yourself. Also called Diet System 6 and a handful of other names, it has become available at a selection of websites under its various names for approximately ten dollars for thirty pills.

Upon reading the marketing materials for System-Six, it doesn’t seem to offer much in terms of unique benefits when compared to other diet pills which may be less expensive and easier to procure. Its claims are that while you build your overall body muscle, you will also burn away excess fat and will have help doing it through a notable energy boost.

According to an online herbal remedie store that sells System-Six, these diet pills contain the following primary ingredients: St. John’s Wort Extract, Advantra-Z Citrus Aurantium Extract, Guarana, Yerba Mate, 5-HTP, Betaine, Chromium Picolinate, Garcinia Cambogia, Cayenne, Ginger Root, L-Carnitine, L-Tyrosine, Green Tea Extract, Spirulina, Kola Nut Extract and Bioperine.

Sytem-Six diet pills contain a few ingredients that are known to aid weight loss. For example, citrus aurantium, guarana, yerba mate, garcinia cambogia and green tea extract are all used to enhance metabolism, which is beneficial when you are trying to lose weight. These ingredients are very common in other non-prescription diet pills.

Overall, System-Six diet pills may be beneficial in helping your body burn more fat and they may even noticeably decrease appetite, however positive customer reviews are hard to come by. One of the major drawbacks of taking these diet pills is the shear amount you need to take. It is recommended that you take up to 6 capsules with every meal. If you eat three meals a day then you will be taking 18 pills a day, which seems excessive. At this rate, you will be taking a bottle of pills (130 gelcaps) every week and this can get expensive since it retails at approximately $20 for a bottle.

Though Irwin Naturals does have an official webpage, System-Six doesn’t seem to have its own official site or page, which is odd as it does seem that the drug is still being manufactured and made available elsewhere for sale.

Yellow Jacket

Yellow Jacket is a type of ephedra diet pills that is also being marketed as an energy supplement. The formula for this product consists of 25 mg of ephedrine in addition to 200 mg of caffeine. The official name for this drug type is barbiturates. It is important to note that as of April 2004, all dietary supplements containing ephedra have been banned by the FDA.

What this means is that the manufacture, purchase, and sale of Yellow Jacket is illegal in the United States. That said, they are also not legal in Canada and many other countries around the world that have found the potential side effects of ephedra to be too dangerous. The only approved uses for ephedra are in its synthetic form as a nasal congestion, asthma, or minor eye irritation treatment.

Other active ingredients in the Yellow Jacket formula include sida cordifolia, citrus aurantium, ginseng, kola nut extract, capsicum, and ginger root.

The main ingredient in Yellow Jacket is ephedra, which is a natural plant substance. Ephedrine is the actual ingredient within the formula, and is the main component of ephedra that gives it properties that are similar to amphetamines. This type of substance acts as a stimulant within the body which impacts the blood pressure and heart rate so that the result is an energy boost and appetite suppression.

The reason that Yellow Jacket and other ephedra (and ephedrine alkaloid) containing products were banned as dietary supplements is that there were reports of dangerous cardiovascular effects. Irregular heart rhythm and elevated blood pressure were among these concerns. Moreover, the FDA determined that any weight loss that resulted from the use of products that contained ephedra was only short-term. Moreover, the FDA also determined that ephedra supplements cause the blood pressure to increase, placing additional stress on the circulatory system. This stress to the circulatory system was associated, by the FDA, with heart disease and strokes. The result of this ban was that all dietary supplements containing ephedra, including Yellow Jacket, were banned from sale. That said, they are still being sold in countries outside the United States.

In order to compensate for the illegality of ephedra in the United States, many diet drug manufacturers started to alter their formulations to use herbal stimulants, such as bitter orange, instead. However, it is important to note that the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine has declared that these substitutes for ephedra in diet pills are not any safer than the ephedra itself.

Following the ban, other drug manufacturers started to produce supplements that do not contain ephedra under the name Yellow Jacket Energy Pills, with a formula that includes B-complex vitamins, caffeine, ginseng, guarana, and yerba mate, instead.

The Herbalean formula has been designed by its manufacturers to be used as a weight loss and energy supplement. This drug contains a number of extremely powerful ingredients that, while they have been known to assist in weight loss, are also very well known to cause potentially dangerous side effects. In the case of ephedra, for example, the ingredient has been banned outright by national health organizations such as the FDA and Health Canada, making it illegal to produce, buy, or sell in those and many other countries. This being said, while Herbalean does contain illegal and unsafe ingredients, it can still be purchased online.

The ingredients of Herbalean include Chromium, Ma Huang extract, Paullinia sorbilis extract, Lotus root extract, Hoodia Gordonii, Garcinia Cambogia, White willow bark, Citrus bigardia extract, Konjac root, Uva Usi, Ginger root, Eleutherococcus senticosus, Bee pollen, Green tea, Pyruvate, and 77 trace minerals.

To take a closer look at some of the primary ingredients in the product, let us start at the beginning. Though Chromium has been researched using many studies, the results have been highly conflicting and therefore there has been no true conclusion as to whether or not it has any impact on weight loss at all. That being said, the Mayo Clinic states that it is likely harmless.

Ma Huang, on the other hand, is included for its ephedra content. Though it may help with weight loss, it can also be highly dangerous to the health and is banned by the FDA.

Hoodia Gordonii, though popularly believed to help with weight loss has never been shown in any reliable clinical studies to have any statistically significant impact on a dieter’s ability to lose weight.

Garcinia Cambogia is an ingredient used for its hydroxycitric acid (HCA) content. This ingredient has been shown to be able to help with weight loss but it also has the potential to be exceptionally hazardous to the health. So much so that in May of 2009, the FDA issued a warning against another brand of pills called Hydroxycut, which had produced 23 reports to the FDA over health concerns related to the liver which are suspected to be linked to the HCA ingredient in the drug. The manufacturer of that drug voluntarily recalled its product and many responsible websites no longer carry any product that contains HCA.

Green tea can help with weight loss when taken at a dose of at least 300mg per day. Though the precise concentration is not provided, its place on the ingredient list suggests that there is not enough green tea in this product to make any difference.

The cost of Herbalean is rather steep at $49.95 per 60-capsule bottle, especially considering the number of health risks and the fact that one of its ingredients has been banned in many countries.

Therefore, this review of Herbalean finds that the supplement provides too many dangerous ingredients combined with too many ineffective or inadequately concentrated ingredients to be worth using for weight loss.
