Slimming Down Naturally

a) Diuretics:
Some slimming pills are said to contain diuretics which will stimulate water-loss. Water loss is indeed dangerous and can prove detrimental to the human body because water makes up almost 70% of the human body and is very important for the cells to carry out processes. Furthermore, diuretics are also known to increase potassium loss in our body. Potassium is needed in our body for many functions. Potassium depletion can lead to adverse effects such as mental confusion and muscle weakness which includes the weakening of the heart muscle.

b) Appetite suppressants:
Slimming pills often contain appetite suppressants that suppress the body’s appetite. An example of an appetite suppressant is Fenfluramine. This substance suppresses appetite by interacting with receptors located in the brain. Latest research has showed that Fenfluramines have detrimental effects on health. An example of a fatal disease is PPH which is a life-threatening disease that causes heart failure and death. Studies have shown that people who take fenfluramines run a greater risk of up to 20 times to developing PPH than those who do not take this chemical substance. In addition, fenfluramines have also been linked to the damage of brain receptors, which may be irreversible.
