V9 Weight Loss Review
What You Should Know
V9 Weight Loss is a Chinese product that contains quite a few interesting ingredients and one ingredient we are unsure of. The product appears to be sold solely on Amazon.com by Herb International, but the manufacturer of the product is Chinese Medicine International. Neither the seller nor the manufacturer has an official website that lists the product for sale or a description of the product. When it comes to losing weight, there are safe and effective ingredients and dangerous ingredients. Just one dangerous ingredient is enough to spoil the entire supplement. V9 Weight Loss contains one potentially dangerous ingredient.
List of Ingredients
- Lotus Leaf
- Senna Leaf
- Immature Orange Fruit
- Yam Rhizome
- Indian Bread?
- Hawthorne Berry
The only weight loss ingredients in V9 Weight Loss are the immature orange fruit and yam rhizome. Immature orange fruit is likely a source of synephrine. Synephrine is a stimulant, commonly used in formulas that previously contained ephedra. The stimulant will increase heart rate and thus increase calorie burn, but there are negative side effects associated with the ingredient. Dieters have reported rapid heart rate and elevated blood pressure after taking products containing synephrine.
Yam rhizome is likely a source of fiber. Fiber is commonly added to weight loss formulas as an appetite suppressant. Because V9 Weight Loss also includes senna – a stimulant herbal laxative – we believe the fiber is added for its laxative effects.
The only information on ingredients is a blurry picture of the product label on Amazon.com. There is an ingredient that looks like Indian Bread, but we found no information on an ingredient by that name. This unknown ingredient could be dangerous.
- We found an image of the V9 Weight Loss label on Amazon.com.
- The label shows all ingredients in the V9 Weight Loss formula.
- None of the ingredients are clinically proven to boost weight loss.
- Immature orange fruit, senna and Indian bread could cause negative side effects.
- Senna is a stimulant laxative and is not safe for long-term use.
- Laxatives are not safe weight loss supplements.
V9 Weight Loss does not appear to be a weight loss supplement at all. The ingredient list reads more like a laxative than a weight loss product. There are tons of new weight loss products on the market that claim dieters need to cleanse before starting a new diet, but there is no indication that cleansing or using laxatives improves weight loss.
