The tablet Zotrim is an over the counter slimming pill that claims to suppress appetite. Zotrim claims to be a herbal supplement in tablet form, which helps you feel full, and in doing so causes you to eat less.
In theory, by taking Zotrim, it will lower your daily calorie intake, and you will indeed lose weight. Zotrim states it's active ingredients as being all natural rain forest herbs called Guarana, Yerbe Mate and Damiana. The make up of the Zotrim tablet is broken down and stated as 27.5% Mate extract, 23.2% Guarana, 9% Damiana extract, and also dicalcium phosphate, talc, sodium carboxymethylcellulose, magnesium Stearate and hydroxypropylmethylcellulose. It should also be known that the Guarana contains caffeine.
The makers of this product claim that a study has indicated that the product may suppress your appetite and so help to reduce overall food intake. The results of this study were published in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics and The British Dietetic Association Journal on June 1st 2001. It's important to remember, however, that no studies have been completed detailing the long term effects of this product. The makers of the product put forth that even after target weight is reached the product can be put to continued use to maintain the weight. However, users should be cautious, because prolonged exposure to high level caffeine can be harmful to health. This product's other difficulty is that it creates a dependency because it doesn't teach slimmers how to eat healthily on their own.
This product is not recommended for anyone under the age of 18, pregnant women, nursing mothers, individuals suffering from a chronic health problem, or those looking to lose more than 40 pounds or 20% of their body weight. If you are thinking of using a diet aid, consult your doctor.
