What You Should Know
LV Shou is a weight loss supplement that claims to help “fat” people lose weight. The reference to dieters as “fat” people shows from the start that this supplement is just not up to par with other slimming formulas. In addition to using unacceptable language in regards to dieters, the product description claims the supplement can help people who are fat because of marriage or pregnancy and keep the weight lost from rebounding.
We found no official website for LV Shou, though that is not a huge surprise. The ingredient list is cryptic, at best, but we think we can find a few recognizable ingredients. Dieters are assured that this supplement will not cause anorexia and they do not have to change how they eat to lose weight.
List of Ingredients
- Bamboo Vinegar
- Gymnosperm Pentasyllabic
- Lotus Leaf
- Polygonum Multiflorum Thunb
- Fomes Japonica
- Licorice Flavor
The ingredient list for LV Shou offers no proven weight loss ingredients – that is the most important aspect of this supplement no matter how disturbing the product description may be. We did find, however, a few common ingredients found in many Japanese and Chinese slimming pills.
Bamboo vinegar is a common ingredient in detox foot patches. Supposedly bamboo vinegar contains more than 200 ingredients, according to some websites, but we could find no verification for the exact 200 ingredients in the vinegar. It is more likely that the bamboo vinegar is extracted from bamboo plants.
Gymnosperm Pentasyllabic could be another name for gymnema sylvestre, but the only information we found on this ingredient was several references to the LV Shou diet pill.
Lotus leaf is commonly used to cleanse the liver and spleen. There are also claims it can reduce fever and treat dizziness. Like many alternative or herbal ingredients, there are no proven effects on the body and no connection was found between lotus leaf and weight loss.
Haw is likely hawthorn. Hawthorn has been tested for its use as a treatment for certain heart conditions. It is thought that this ingredient supports healthy heart function, but we found no support for using hawthorn as part of a weight loss supplement.
Polygonum Multiflorum Thunb is a plant extract that is extremely dangerous. According to the National Institutes of Health, this extract can cause liver damage to the point where healthy people suffer jaundice and need emergency hospitalization.
