Whether you are looking to drop a few pounds, twenty, fifty, or even one hundred pounds, detox diets for weight loss are extremely popular method of whittling down your waistline and fitting back into that dress hanging in the back of the closet. There are many popular detox cleansing diets - and you've probably heard of them - like the infamous Master Cleanse lemonade-and-cayenne pepper diet. But then maybe you've also heard about Chinese weight loss pills that help you cleanse from the inside out like Ziu Xiu Tang.
What exactly are Zi Xiu Tang Weight Loss Pills?
Zi Xiu Tang does not really literally translate into English as "detox for weight loss," but these are the results you can expect from these detox pills. Zi Xiu Tang uses therapeutic ancient Chinese medicine to combine a number of natural herbs and ingredients to stimulate weight loss. Active ingredients that make Zi Xiu Tang effective include bee pollen, Chinese yam, barberry, wolfberry fruit, lotus seed, and dietary fiber. You may not already be familiar with these ingredients, so let's break down the benefits of these natural supplements.
Bee pollen is a common ingredient used in alternative medicine, such as Chinese herbal products. Its structure is high in protein and natural carbohydrates. Some of its reported effects include increased energy, libido, improved blood pressure, reduction of depressive symptoms, and elimination of acne. As far as weight loss, bee pollen is also full of a natural enzyme called lechitin. Lechitin is said to help remove stored fat from the body and increase the metabolism. The end result for many people is weight loss.
Chinese yams are often used in traditional Eastern medicine. Nutritionally, the yam indigenous to China is full of nutrients - high in vitamin C, dietary fiber, and vitamins B6, potassium, and manganese. Each of these vitamins have been ingested via supplements in Western medicine to promote energy and overall good health. If you've been into "diets" before, you may balk at the idea of ingesting carbs, but consider that yams have a lower glycemic index than white potatoes, which gives you a longer sustained sense of energy without the typical "carb" crash, and the additional fiber helps you to not only feel fuller when eating, but also helps to cleanse your body internally.
Have you heard of Goji? Well, this is another name commonly used for Wolfberry Fruit. The Chinese have used wolfberry as an nutrient-rich ingredient in natural herbal remedies for thousands of years. Typically, this herb is dried and used as an herb rather than eaten as a fruit. There are numerous health benefit associated with this herb including more acute vision, improved liver and kidney function (including prevention of absorption of fat), and has even been used to regulate blood sugar levels as a remedy for diabetes.
Venture over to China and you'll find lotus seeds for sale in many marketplaces. Commonly used in Chinese cuisine, lotus seeds are believed to have medicinal properties that support good health. Medically, the use of lotus seed has reported benefits to the spleen, kidney, and heart. It has also been used to improve sexual function.
Are These Weight Loss Pills Safe?
Rightfully so, you're concerned with side effects and potential dangers of Zi Xiu Tang. Of course, you should consult with your doctor before taking any weight loss pills (or even take it a step further and consult someone who is familiar with Eastern medicine as well!). Some of the potential dangers are self-explanatory - if you're allergic to bee pollen, it's not a good idea to take them, no matter what kind of weight loss you're anxious to achieve. Wolfberry fruit may work a little too well in regulating blood sugar levels - and some people have reported dizziness due to low blood sugar, but overall these Chinese weight loss pills have been found to be safe and effective, detoxing the body to stimulate weight loss, even without changing your diet or exercise.
