On Weight And Beauty

On Weight and​ Beauty
Beauty is​ what most,​ if​ not all,​ people want to​ have . ​
in​ fact,​ billions of​ dollars are spent every year just to​ attain the​ elusive dream of​ physical perfection . ​
Surgical procedures have been designed to​ improve and​ alter the​ nose,​ chin,​ mouth,​ and​ even the​ entire face and​ body of​ a​ person who would be willing to​ spend for​ it . ​
of​ course,​ not everyone can afford these highly expensive medical procedures . ​

Manufacturers of​ beauty products offer a​ cheaper alternative through the​ various brands and​ concoctions they feed to​ a​ large market . ​
Beauty soaps,​ astringents,​ lotions and​ a​ host of​ other beauty products are packaged and​ sold to​ an​ eager army of​ customers . ​
These products all promise to​ make a​ womans skin more soft,​ smooth,​ and​ silky . ​

These products are not only limited to​ toiletries and​ tabletop skin cleansing preparations . ​
it​ extends to​ a​ wide range of​ pharmaceutical items as​ well . ​
Some of​ these pharmaceutical products include acne pills,​ growth pills,​ and​ slimming pills . ​

While it​ is​ true that beauty is​ in​ the​ eye of​ the​ beholder society has already set some standards on​ what constitutes beauty . ​
People have differences in​ terms of​ what is​ beautiful in​ terms of​ skin,​ hair color,​ shape of​ the​ eyes,​ or​ the​ fullness of​ ones lips . ​
Still,​ most people agree on​ one thing the​ shape of​ a​ womans body . ​
for​ this reason,​ weight loss pills are among the​ most bought beauty products in​ the​ market . ​

Weight loss pills contain different chemicals and​ ingredients that either reduce a​ persons appetite or​ prevent the​ absorption of​ fat in​ the​ body . ​
for​ example,​ ephedra is​ still being used as​ an​ ingredient in​ some weight loss pills . ​
Ephedra is​ a​ botanical product widely used to​ enhance alertness and​ as​ a​ weight loss aid . ​
it​ is​ actually a​ low stalky shrub with jointed green to​ brown stems and​ tiny unnoticeable leaves . ​
it​ is​ the​ source of​ ephedrine alkaloids and​ has a​ long history of​ medical use in​ China . ​
Reported adverse effects led the​ Food and​ ​Drug​ Administration FDA to​ ban ephedracontaining products in​ the​ United States in​ 2004,​ although it​ can still be legally sold as​ tea . ​
Despite the​ ban,​ many ephedra products are still being sold over the​ Internet . ​
the​ main slimming effect ephedra is​ appetite reduction . ​
Possible side effects of​ longterm ephedra use include high blood pressure,​ heart rate irregularities,​ sleeplessness,​ seizures,​ heart attacks,​ strokes,​ and​ even death . ​
Other weight loss pills uses different kinds of​ chemical contents . ​
Some dietary pills block the​ absorption of​ dietary fat,​ which is​ relatively safe,​ but can cause constipation,​ bloating and​ other stomach ailments . ​
Other weight loss pills reduce body fat and​ builds up muscles . ​
These products are relatively safe . ​

Green tea extract is​ also used for​ slimming purposes . ​
the​ extract increases calorie and​ fat metabolism and​ decreases appetite,​ although there is​ limited evidence to​ support the​ claim . ​
However,​ long term use of​ green tea extract can cause vomiting,​ bloating,​ indigestion,​ and​ diarrhea . ​

With all these weight loss pills easily available on​ the​ market,​ one can easily think of​ a​ dieters dream where every single fatburning product is​ within reach . ​
Dietary supplements and​ weight loss aids are not subject to​ the​ same rigorous standards applied in​ the​ regulation of​ prescription ​Drug​s or​ medications sold overthecounter . ​
Thus,​ they can be marketed with limited proof of​ effectiveness and​ safety . ​
Vendors can make health claims about products based on​ their own review and​ interpretation of​ the​ studies without the​ authorization of​ the​ FDA,​ however the​ FDA can pull a​ product off the​ market if​ its proven dangerous . ​

A persons scrutiny and​ curiosity would be their best protection . ​
Reading labels and​ consulting doctors or​ pharmacists about the​ dietary supplement they are taking or​ considering taking is​ advised . ​
