The bad news first. People (including us) want a "silver bullet", a pill, that will let us lose weight without changing the basic habits that cause us to gain weight in the first place. In addition to our bad habits, hormone changes as we get older, food allergies, and other factors make it even more difficult for us to lose weight.
The good news. So, while diet and lifestyle changes are vital to achieving and maintain a more ideal weight, dietary supplements may help with factors such as appetite, increasing metabolism, balancing hormones, burning fat, improving digesting, etc.
So here are some of the dietary supplements that have been popular with our customers. Many of them have been made popular on Dr. Oz's TV show.

How It Works:
5-Hydroxytryptophan is a precursor to serotonin, an important neurotransmitter that helps regulate appetite, mood and sleep. 5-Hydroxytryptophan is converted into serotonin in the body, which may help elevate mood, assist in controlling hunger and promote restful sleep. 5-HTP Power blends three adaptogenic herbs—eleuthero, ashwaganda and suma— with 5-HTP to help the body adjust to changes. It also contains vitamin B6 and zinc, which support the action of 5-HTP.
