What are the Problems With Trim Spa Diet Pills?

Trim Spa side effects have been the subject of much recent controversy, spurred on by the recent FDA banning of ephedra due to its possible role in causing heart problems and even death.

It is one of the most popular diet pills on the market. By now we have all seen the Anna Nicole Trimspa commercials (the site still mentions her name this many years after her death), where she gets out of the limo and claims the noticeable weight loss she experienced was due to "Trimspa baby!".

The problem with this is there is no way to be sure her weight loss had anything to do with the supplement, or even if she was taking it at all. We all know Anna Nicole would do just about anything for money.

But more troubling than this is not only the fact that those results are not typical (something the company admits), but Trimspa and similar weight loss pills can be dangerous to your health for many reasons.

Let's take a closer look at this diet pill

One of the main ingredients of Trim Spa, up until the recent ban we mention above, was ephedra. Ephedra has been a popular weight loss supplement for years. However, due to the fact that high doses could elevate heart rate to dangerous levels, and even cause heart attacks, it was banned by the Federal Drug Administration.

As a result, the manufacturers developed an ephedra-free product called X32 with a new substance called Hoodia Gordonii. However, there was a lawsuit (February 2004) which accused the company of misleading consumers. The suit claimed that the new TrimSpa X32 product does not contain the active ingredient found in the Hoodia Gordonii plant, and therefore is not the appetite suppressant it claims to be. The company, Goen Technologies, agreed to pay $750,000 to settle the suit.

According to the official Trim Spa website, some of the Trim Spa side effects may include swelling and blocking of the throat or esophagus and may cause choking if not taken with adequate fluid.

It also warns that "If you experience chest pain, vomiting, or difficulty in swallowing or breathing after taking this product, seek immediate medical attention."

You may experience Trimspa side effects if you are allergic to shellfish or are taking anticoagulant (blood thinning medications) and if you are sensitive to caffeine they suggest that you take a lower dosage or not take the product at all.

The Lasting Effects of Diet Pills

More important than the possible Trim Spa side effects is the fact that some diet pills can be detrimental to your long term health. You can end up in worse shape than you were to begin with, and put the fat back on quicker for the following reasons:

  1. A significant proportion of the weight that you lose in the early stages of dieting is water and lean muscle. Only a small amount of the lost weight is fat. This means your muscles get smaller and as a result you lose part of your body's natural ability to burn fat.

  2. Artificial appetite suppression is not healthy. It is merely a temporary fix to fool your body into thinking you're full, and actually sets off mechanisms which can damage your long term health.

  3. When you stop taking certian diet pills, your weight will quickly return to what it was except this time you have more fat tissue and less muscle tissue.

Although these diet pills can help you lose weight in some cases, the negative effects on your body offset the temporary weight loss you might experience.

Also, each time you diet it becomes harder to lose the weight and you will gain more when you stop the dieting. You have certainly seen the results of people who diet on a regular basis... it's almost always the same.
