Here’s What You Need To Know About Diet Pills (And Why You Should Avoid Them)

Diet pills; sometimes also referred to as weight loss pills, are weight-loss inducing medications that are available as both over-the-counter treatments or through prescription-only access, depending on the type of diet pills in question. Whilst weight loss pills are available in this range of forms, their usage, effectiveness, and even safiety is regularly called into question – and the list of potential side effects that could be acquired through usage, makes them a very controversial area in the health and wellness community and with health professionals alike.

In a study published in Health Education that describes the use around diet pills in young women of college (or university) age, researchers discovered that diet pills are particularly popular (and attractive) to women of this age and status… but this doesn’t mean that it is this demographic that uses diet pills for weight loss exclusively.

How do diet pills work?

Diet pills work by the drug – frequently Phentermine, being absorbed. These pills are taken orally, and so the drug is absorbed into the gastrointestinal tract, with the drug suppressing your appetite with the aim of decreasing the amount of food required to feel satisfied.

On the other hand, other diet pills work by increasing your… frequency. To put it simply: many diet pills are quite unpleasant. AKA – you’re going to find yourself going to the toilet a lot more often than usual.

Are diet pills safe?

For starters – and this goes for all medication, never buy medication online, diet pills or otherwise. Ensure that any medication is approved and licensed (and this regulation may depend on what country you are in).

Overall, studies have shown that diet pills are heavily linked to detrimental health effects such as insomnia and anxiety, as well as addiction and even long-term illnesses related to heart health, too.

So then… what should people use?

The long answer? At Innermost, we’re always ones to encourage you to adopt natural, healthy patterns, techniques and strategies that allow you to reach your fitness goals – whether that be weight loss or otherwise. But if you are looking for a little extra something to help you reach your goals, we recommend natural supplements.

The short answer? The Tone Capsules.

How can I lose weight?

If you're looking to speed up the weight loss process, don't run straight to the pharmacy (or even worse, the internet) to find the latest fad diet pill. First, consider natural ingredients and products that prioritise your health (and maximise your performance), such as The Tone Capsules, to make a real difference. 

Aside from supplements and similar, there are plenty of great ways to lose weight. Take Matcha green tea, for example.
