What You Should Know
Liddell Laboratories is the maker of VITAL Weight Loss XL. It is a spray that dieters use to increase fat burn and decrease appetite. According to the label, dieters as young as 12 can use the spray, but many of the ingredients are far from safe for young dieters. Dieters under the age of 18 should not use weight loss pills, sprays, patches, creams or any other form of product to boost metabolism. The official website lists all ingredients in the supplement and a brief description of what the ingredient does in the body. Some of the descriptions make it clear that this supplement is not created for children and it may not be effective for adults.
List of Ingredients
Antimonium crudum, Apis mellifica, Capsicum, Fucus vesiculosus, Galium aparine, Gambogia garcinia, Hamamelis virginica, Hepar, Histaminum hydrochloricum, Nux vomica, Pancreatinum, Petroselinum, Thuja occidentalis, Thyroidinum and Zingiber officinale.
The first thing we noticed about VITAL Weight Loss XL is the list of scientific names. Many of these names correspond to everyday diet pill ingredients, but they look more natural and professional in scientific form.
Antimonium crudum is a mineral supplement often used to stop burping. This has no effect on weight loss. Apis mellifica is otherwise known as bee venom. Dieters who are allergic to bees should not take this supplement. There is a long list of potential health benefits, many of them mental, but none are proven. Capsicum is another name for hot pepper extract. It may help boost metabolism slightly, but not enough to cause pronounced weight loss.
Fucus vesiculosus or Bladderwrack is a natural diuretic. Diuretics cause water loss but not weight loss. Galium aparine is also known as coachweed and works as a diuretic. Gambogia garcinia is garcinia cambogia, a fat burner that could be associated with liver damage. Hamamelis virginica is also known as witch hazel. Witch hazel has no weight loss benefits and is typically used as an astringent.
Hepar is another word for liver. This ingredient could be used to cleanse the liver, but we have no idea what the actual ingredient is so that is hard to tell. Histaminum hydrochloricum is commonly used to treat allergic reactions. This ingredient could be used to counteract the effect of bee venom. Nux vomica is a natural treatment for constipation. This means the ingredient is a laxative. Pancreatinum may help fat digest. Petroselinum is otherwise known as parsley.
Thuja occidentalis is commonly used to fight headaches and constipation – another laxative. Thyroidinum may induce sleep or calm the user. Zingiber officinale is another name for ginger.

VITAL Weight Loss XL is nothing more than a list of laxatives and diuretics in spray form. The dieter should choose a different product for weight loss and never give this product to a child.
