Natural Safe Appetite Suppressants

Updated on June 2, 2010

Are you hungry all of the time? Do you feel like you're constantly snacking and if you stop, you feel deprived? If so, you might be thinking about taking appetite suppressants to trick your body into being less hungry than it currently is. If you're sure that what you've got is a physical problem and not a problem with the habit of eating too often, then appetite suppressants could be a great solution for you, helping you to curb that appetite and so to lose weight.

But you don't want to be rash about taking any old appetite suppressants since some of what's out there on the market isn't very good for you. There are a plethora of appetite suppressants that you can be, some of which speed up your metabolism in such a way that creates negative effects in the body. If you've ever taken a caffeine-based appetite suppressant, you might have found that you had jitters and problems sleeping. But there are natural safe appetite suppressants that you can take to curb your appetite without causing harm to your body.

But the first thing you should know is that the companies who sell appetite suppressants know that you have these concerns so they're putting the word "natural" on things that aren't necessarily good for your body. You need to spend some time doing your research if you want to get natural appetite suppressants that are truly safe for your body. An example of what is commonly found by people who do their research is that there are a number of natural appetite suppressants on the market which can say that they're natural because they use all herbal ingredients; however they contain ephedra which is a product that has been found to have negative effects on the body.

As you delve into your research, you'll find that there are a number of plants now being advertised to have appetite suppressant qualities. One of the most popular of these is hoodia, an African cactus that naturally suppresses the appetite and seems to have no side effects that are unsafe. Plants like hoodia are the ones that you're going to want to look for as you look for the natural appetite suppressants that are best for you. And strange plants aren't the only ones that have appetite suppressant effects; many of the green vegetables that you can get in your local supermarket are also great for suppressing the appetite. They help you to feel full without filling you with calories.

You should also know that healthy liquids can have an appetite-curbing effect in the sense that make you feel "full". Water is the best of these liquids of course, but you can also drink healthy teas, such as green tea, to fill up. This is a safe, natural appetite suppressant that doesn't cost you anything. It can help you lose weight because you'll be eating less since you're drinking more. Of course, that's not nearly as appealing as taking a pill to suppress your appetite but many people do think it's the healthier course of action.
