Herbal Weight Loss


Some of the common problems many people have when they’re trying to lose weight are:

Lack of Energy – Many people choose the wrong diets for themselves, or worse: Try to starve themselves to lose weight, and these approaches deplete the body of energy it needs to go about it’s daily business.

Always Hungry – This is also often caused by the type of diet people choose for their weight loss approach, and this is one of the biggest reasons many people fail in their weight loss goals too. Being hungry all the time is depressing and frustrating. It will make you cranky, and it will often cause you to give up your weight loss plans.

Mental Attitude – This is often weakened and worn down due to hunger and lack of energy, but many people get despondent when they’re trying to lose weight. It’s easy to become depressed when it seems like the weight is coming off way too slowly, particularly if you’re denying yourself even some basic pleasures such as regular meals.

There are various other things that can happen as side effects of losing weight too. For instance many people become constipated when they’re dieting, and many also find themselves retaining water. So the primary herbal approach to successful weight loss, is to manage and control these common side effects. Once you’re able to manage and control these issues, you’re much more likely to continue with your weight loss plans, and reach the goals you’ve set for yourself.

So let’s look at several herbs which can help aid in the overall weight loss process.

Hoodia Gordonii is a plant found in South Africa which has gotten a lot of attention in the past few years. This plant has compounds which naturally supress your appetite. In fact, some studies done show the people have reduced their caloric intake by as much as 2000 calories a day when using Hoodia, with no ill side effects.

There is little to no information so far however, about whether Hoodia also has other health and medicinal properties.

Chickweed is a common herb in the United States which does much the same thing. It reduces your appetite drastically, though some people report it actually makes you feel as if you’re full from a meal which could be considered slightly different.

Chickweed is very high in Vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, and potassium, and helps carry out toxins from your blood. This herb is also excellent for a variety of skin problems, and has been used to treat acne, boils, burns and many other ailments over the years.

Dandelion is another excellent herb to add to your daily weight loss regimine. This herb is most well known for it’s liver cleansing effects. It too is quite high in vitamins and minerals, and it helps correct low blood pressure, build energy, and build endurance.
