Classified as foods rather than drugs, dietary supplements are products taken by mouth that contain a “dietary ingredient” intended to supplement the diet. Dietary supplements designed for weight reduction or fat loss are very common. The “dietary ingredients” in these functional food supplements may include: herbs, botanicals, amino acids, enzymes, organ tissues, glandulars, metabolites, vitamins or minerals.
There is very little clinical proof that using dietary supplements alone, causes lasting weight loss. Most recorded weight reduction occurs in people who combine supplementation with a diet and exercise program. Such weight loss may thus be attributed to the calorie-deficit rather than the pills themselves.
US authorities have prosecuted leading manufacturers of diet supplements and issued several health warnings about their products, as a result of health and safety concerns. This follows adverse health reports of heart problems, strokes, shortness of breath, fluid retention, nervousness and insomnia.
