Weight-loss has never been easy, but you'll be glad to know there are several herbs that can make weight-loss painless, while improving your general health and aiding prevention of disease. Also, with health concerns over some weight-loss drugs (Phen-fen), herbal stimulants (Metabolife, Herbalife), fad diets and fat burners, losing weight without risking your health is a hot topic!
Due to the new information concerning Atkins style, low carbohydrate diets, we are now suggesting several herbs that will aid those who are using this type of diet.Psyllium will aid in both weight loss and in improved digestive system health if you're following a low carbohydrate diet. And 5-HTP will ease cravings for carbohydrates and help to prevent the irritability that can accompany low carbohydrate levels in the body. All these herbs should be accompanied by moderate exercise (walking is all that's really needed), a slow change away from fat toward more fruits and vegetables, and a general change in your attitude to food; away from denial and toward health.
The herbs in this section are well researched and widely regarded as safe. They boost metabolism levels without the jitters, provide fibre for low-carb diets and help you lose weight naturally. This is a gradual, long term approach aimed at permanent change. The only requirement is a little determination and patience. We suggest you start with the herbs we have put together in the Weight Loss Kit or simply Yerba Mate Tea. For more information on these and other individual herbs click the links below.
