According to a health report published by www.virginmedia.com , food supplements that are meant to trigger weight loss do not actually work. The study to find out this fact has been done by experts from Peninsula Medical School at the University of Plymouth.
The researchers came out with the conclusion that a number of supplements with fiber, cabbage and plant extracts are fake and just do not help people in shedding weight. The same study was also conducted by German researchers, only to find out no evidence of the pills working on the human bodies.
According to www.webmd.com, the findings of this research were presented at the International Conference on Obesity in Stockholm. The researchers are of the belief that none of the supplements is recommended for losing body weight.
After carrying out the research on few food supplements, the healthcare professionals were not satisfied with the results and they said that “Few food supplements have therefore been submitted to clinical trials, and many healthcare professionals feel uncertain about their therapeutic value.”
