According to the product description for Ruin Your Appetite, the ingredients lift up qi causing appetite to be suppressed.

List of Ingredients


  • Platycodi
  • Notopterygium
  • Bupleurum
  • Rehmannia
  • Cimicifugia

Product Features

Platycodi has been tested on lab mice, but not on humans. Lab tests showed reduce fatty stores when mice were given doses of 244 mg per kg and 375 mg per kg. The dose in humans would have to be huge to recreate the same effects. The mice were fed high fat diets during the study. No studies have been completed to prove the same anti-fat storage effects on low fat or reduced calorie diets.

Notopterygium is a natural anti-inflammatory with diuretic effects. Diuretics are commonly found in Chinese weight loss supplements, but have no lasting effect on weight. Diuretics force water from the body causing a temporary change on the scale. When the dieter stops taking the supplement with diuretic ingredients, the weight returns. In the mean time, excessive water loss can cause electrolyte imbalance, particularly potassium loss.

Bupleurum is commonly used to treat fatigue and constipation. There is a chance this ingredient could increase metabolism if it has stimulant effects, but little is known about how the ingredient works in the body. As for the effects on the body in terms of constipation, the ingredient could have laxative effects.

Rehmannia may be useful in dieters with hormonal imbalances, but like other Chinese ingredients, there are no human trials to base these claims on. There is no evidence this ingredient boosts weight loss or reduces appetite.

Ruin Your Appetite also includes cimicifugia. Cimicifugia is another name for cohosh, which could mean the ingredient is black cohosh. There is no evidence cohosh decreases appetite.
