Herbal weight loss supplements contain a number of possible ingredients that will lead to weight loss: For instance some of these are:

  • Green tea extract. Green tea extract will aid the metabolism in the body as well as provide additional energy so that the person will exercise as well as feel better in general.
  • Herbal diuretics. Various diuretics will help you to lose excess water retention in your body, by making your kidneys produce urine.
  • Hoodia. Its Latin name is actually hoodia gordonii. It is often found in weight loss supplements and comes from a desert cactus grown in Angola, Namibia, Botswana and in South America in general. What hoodia does is to act as a natural appetite suppressant.
  • Starch neutralizers. The body naturally converts starches into fat through the use of amylase that is produced in the body. Neutralizers work by stopping the amylase from converting starches into glucose.
  • Hydroxycitric acid (HCA). A natural appetite suppressant found in the Garcinia cambogia plant's fruit.
  • Chromium. Found in many fruits and vegetables. It is a mineral that acts with regard to the metabolism of food in the body.
