Natural Herbal Slimming Tablets

Herbal diet pillsIf you are thinking of introducing or employing the use of a  diet pill to aid the weight loss process – the choice is either the chemical based prescription only route or the more natural and herbal based products.

Chemical or pharamaceutical diet products cannot be purchased and are not available to everyone. To qualify for a prescription you will have to be classed as very over weight or obese.

Your GP will assess your lifestyle, dietary habits and current situation and after he or she has underlined the potential health risks associated with what is in essence a drug, possibly offer you a prescription.

For everyone else, who are not considered dangerously over weight or obese – the non prescription market beckons.

Non Prescription Herbal Diet Pills

A majority of the diet pills that are freely available to buy over the counter in health stores in the high street and via the internet are herbal based and come from the natural world.

There may be minor interference from a chemical perspective on a few herbal based products by the majority remain completely natural.


Herbal diet pills account for approximately 90% of the non prescription market – diet products that you will find in high street stores such as Superdrug, Holland and Barrett, Boots and supermarket chains will be herbal in the majority.

Popular Herbal Diet Pills

Two of the most common herbal diet pills found in the high street are Lipobind and Adios – both are completely natural and both claim to be the best selling natural diet pill in the UK.

The major problem that the herbal diet pill industry faces especially in the UK is the influx of so called wonder or miracle diet pills from across the Atlantic.

The herbal diet pill market is not governed as strictly as the prescription market and so producers of natural products have pretty much carte blanche so they can pretty much say what they want and make outrageous claims in respect of the efficacy of their products.

Some of the stand out culprits are the much publicized Lipovox and Orovo that lead with the superfood ideology.

Herbal Diet Pills And Side Effects

The advantage a majority of herbal based diet pills have over their chemical cousins is that they are least likely to cause side effects. The herbal diet pill genre most likely to cause a side effect, although not severe, is the fat burner

Herbal Fat Burners

Herbal fat burners usually are based around stimulants such as caffeine – many a comment has been made in connection to a restless feeling, nausea, headache or insomnia. Image drinking several large cups of coffee throughout the day – welcome to the fat burner.

Fat burners are considered to be the less effective of all the diet pill genres.

Most Effective Herbal Diet Pills

Two of the most effective types of diet pill are the fat stopper (blocker or binder) and the appetite suppressant.

Xenical is quite possibly the most effective prescription only diet pill – it is the most likely to be prescribed if you qualify for a GP administered diet drug. Xenical is a fat blocker and stops the absorption of fat from being digested into your stomach. More about Xenical

The natural world have products that can replicate the success of Xenical by binding fat – fat binders. These work in similar way and are equally effective. Read More about Fat Binders

Appetite suppressants are another very effective method for reducing not only body weight but body fat. Appetite suppressants can provide the will power often lacking in people who want to reduce or cut down on the amount of food consumed or calories taken on daily.

The most popular natural appetite suppressant is Hoodia Gordonii – Hoodia capsules should contain raw Hoodia powder taken from a cactus like plant that is native to Southern Africa.

There are hundreds of brands of Hoodia available to purchase but only a few remain true to its origin. Luckily the UK has tow Hoodia product that contain legitimate authentic produce –

Adios Max Natural Diet Aid

Adios Max Review

Adios Max Diet PillsAdios is one the most familiar herbal diet pill brands in the UK.

It is sold in most of the major high street stores that stock weight management products including Boots, Superdrug, Asda, Sainsburys, Morrisons as well as many leading high street chemists and pharmacy outlets.

The Adios brand  competes with Lipobind as the UK’s best selling diet pill

What Is Adios Max

A slightly higher, more potent version than Adios original – even with the the increased dosage Adios still remains a very cheap diet pill aimed at providing the most subtle of weight loss results.

It is a  natural slimming supplement that contains a herbal active ingredient called fucus dry extract that is a byproduct of a type of algae.

This fucus dry algae can aid weight loss by increasing the body’s metabolic rate. In essence Adios Max is a fat burner.

Adios Max Side Effects

It is unlikely to produce any nasty side effects and equally as unlikely to provide any significant weight loss.

Adios Max Summary

There is not an awful more that can be said about Adios Max – it is just a slightly higher strength version of the original – Read Adios Original Review

Where To Buy Adios Max

This is very much a diet pill at the budget end of the market and can be purchased more or less anywhere. You may be able to find an online outlet that sell the product slightly cheaper than the high street.

But in reality as most of the major supermarkets stock the product it could be easier to pick up a packet the next time you do your weekly shop.

Alternatives Natural Diet Pills

Proactol PlusAdios targets the lower end of the market whereas Proactol Plus targets the higher end. Adios costs around £10 for one month whereas Proactol costs around £40.

Proactol Plus is certified and approved and has accreditation for effect and safety – Adios is not blessed with documentation.

Buying cheap uncertified diet pills is and always will be a false economy.

Adios Natural Diet Pills

Adios Slimming Tablets Review

Adios Diet TabletsAdios is one of the better known and respected diet pills available to a UK consumer.

Adios has been around for an eternity compared to other slimming supplements that arrive onto the over the counter diet pill market with a fanfare of hype and fail to deliver.

The UK diet pill market does not seem to suffer from the hype and over exaggeration that products across the Atlantic are guilty of – the blue and green box is familiar to anyone who has browsed the diet supplements and slimming products available in high street stores such as Boots the Chemist, Superdrug and Asda.

If you are looking for a cheap diet pill these are the tablets for you. Hunting around on eBay we have found 100 tablets for around £5 – great value, or would be great value if they were as effective as they are perceived to be.

The official website claims it is the number diet pill in the UK – Lipobind may have something to say about that!

What Are Adios Diet Tablets

Billed as a natural aid for slimming – but when the reputation is peeled away it is just a fat burner.

Key Ingredients

  • Butternut
  • Dandelion root
  • Foldo
  • Fucus (a type of seaweed)

How Does Adios Work

Adios comprises of all natural and herbal ingredients that when combined supposedly speeds up the body’s metabolism and burns fat. Just how this actually does this given the vague list of ingredients is anyone’s guess.

The one saving grace for Adios is that is does come with a sensible slimming plan in the packaging and draws the attention to the fact that a change of diet and exercise should be applied in conjunction with the dietary supplement.

Side Effects Of Adios

Should not pose a risk to health although it advised from using if you are pregnant of breast feeding.

One of the ingredients used is the bark from the butternut tree – although this is extract from the tree and not the nut itself it is still recommended to avoid if you have a nut allergy.

This product is gluten free – the starch included is from potatoes and not wheat.

Does Adios Work

The real problem with Adios is that it is very cheap – under a fiver in some high street stores. Some dieters have claimed weight loss success but it could be argued that it is the change of diet and introduction of exercise that could be responsible.

Cheap does not equate to effective.

Fat burners are possibly the least effective of all the non prescription slimming tablet available to buy.

Where To Buy

As mentioned above, a UK customer is spoilt for choice with the major high street outlets such as Superdrug, Boots and Asda among its premier stockists.

Alternative Natural Diet Pills

Proactol compared to AdiosProactol – a natural fat binder that has been voted “best diet pill” for the second year in succession by readers of the Telegraph newspaper.

Proactol can stop the absorption of over a quarter of dietary fat from food consumed and does not cause any side effects.
