Initial Posting: 6/7/14Weight Loss Supplements Tested by ConsumerLab.com (Herbal Stimulants and 7-Keto DHEA)       

Sections: Jump to a section by clicking on its name. What It Is:
Many ingredients have been touted for weight loss. These ingredients include bitter orange, calcium (see separate Review of Calcium Supplements), chitosan (from shells of crustaceans), ephedra (an herbal ingredient also known as ma huang and which contains ephedrine and other stimulant alkaloids), green tea, 7-keto DHEA, hydroxycitric acid (HCA) from the fruit Garcinia cambogia (see separate Review of Garcinia (HCA) Supplements), green coffee bean extracts (see separate Review of Green Coffee Bean Supplements), hoodia (from the cactus-like plant Hoodia gordonii — see separate Hoodia Review), pyruvate and L-carnitine (both of which are found and made in our bodies), the essential mineral chromium naturally found in animals, plants, and soil (also see separate Review of Chromium Supplements), raspberry ketones (from red raspberry fruit) and herbal stimulant blends.

Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) may help with slimming by increasing the proportion of lean body mass (muscle) to fat and possibly modest weight loss (see separate Review of CLA Supplements).

What It Does:
The amount of evidence supporting the various weight loss ingredients varies, and, for many, is not very strong. There are also safety concerns regarding the use of some. Below is a summary of information about several of the most popular ingredients used for weight loss (see ConsumerTips™ for more information specifically about the forms, dosage, and safety for 7-keto DHEA and green tea):
