Many slimming pills don’t work

The Hospital Group

More than half of British adults are classed as overweight so it’s no surprise that there’s a large and growing market for slimming pills and supplements, but new research has revealed that many of them don’t work.

 

With many pills boasting attractive results that range from pills which can bind body fat to prevent the body from absorbing it or pills that claim to speed up the metabolism, it’s no surprise that those who want to lose weight are tempted by the large variety of pills on offer.

 

As concerns over the products mount, experts are warning consumers not to be taken in by the claims found on many of the products. With misleading buzz words such as ‘certified medical device’ or ‘clinically proven’ it’s not hard to see why so many overweight people purchase the pills.

 

For those who are worried about their weight The Hospital Group provide a top class service in state-of-the-art facilities.

 

The Hospital Group is the UK’s biggest provider of weight loss surgery, including gastric bands, gastric bypasses and gastric balloons which can give you a healthier lifestyle.

 

David Ross, Chief Executive of The Hospital Group said: “The majority of slimming pills do not give long lasting or dramatic results and leave those who are battling with their weight feeling down.

 

“Many people will have struggled with their weight for years and as a result feel self conscious and have low self esteem. At The Hospital Group we can offer specialist surgeons who have maximum experience in the field of bariatric surgery.

 

“Whilst it is by no means a quick fix or easy option it can give long lasting results which can dramatically change a person’s life and restore their confidence.

 

 “Those who come to The Hospital Group, can be assured of a dedicated, professional service, with astounding success rates and a limited waiting time. This latest news is just another reason to seek an effective weight loss solution with The Hospital Group.”
