What You Should Know
Applied Nutrition Weight Control Liquid is packaged in a soft-gel, not a liquid as the brand name suggests. When we look into a supplement, we base much of our judgment on the ingredient list. In the case of the Weight Control Liquid by Applied Nutrition, the ingredient list is lacking much of the ingredients needed to boost weight loss. Applied Nutrition no longer lists the Weight Control Liquid for sale, but it may be available from other vitamin retailers.
List of Ingredients
Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Magnolia Bark, Betasitosterol, Hoodia Extract, Green Tea Extract, Epimedium Extract and Bioperine.
The first seven ingredients work to produce energy in the body. When taken in supplement form, the dieter will likely feel a boost in energy, but that boost is not going to last more than a few hours. B vitamins are washed out of the body as soon as the body uses what it needs. The body does not store extra B vitamins so there is no toxic level.
Hoodia extract is a useless appetite suppressant. Many supplement manufacturers choose to add hoodia on the belief that dieters will not known current research findings. According to research studies, hoodia has no effect on hunger. The active ingredient, P57, is metabolized long before it sends a signal to the brain to stop hunger.
Green tea extract is a great ingredient for weight loss, but we have no idea how much green tea is included. Only three ingredients are part of a proprietary blend and green tea extract is one.
There is naturally occurring caffeine from the green tea, but the amount is not listed on the product label. There is also a warning associated with Applied Nutrition Weight Control Liquid. Dieters with heart problems, including increased blood pressure, should not take the supplement before talking with a physician.
Magnolia bark supports mood function. This could be a problem for dieters taking mood-altering medications like anti-depressants.
There is no pricing information.
- Green tea is backed with clinical studies supporting weight loss claims.
- Green tea contains caffeine, another proven ingredient.
- The dieter has no idea how much caffeine is in Applied Nutrition Weight Control Liquid.
- There is no amount listed for green tea.
A dieter needs proven weight loss ingredients to lose weight and feel great. Applied Nutrition Weight Control Liquid contains one proven ingredient – green tea, but no amounts. There needs to be a minimum of 300 mg to support weight loss. Hoodia is not an effective appetite suppressant so dieters may feel hungry after taking this supplement. There is also a concern that dieters on mood-altering medications may feel the effects of magnolia bark.
