Washington: Over-the-counter pills that promise to help people suppress their appetite to lose weight may not be as effective as more natural approaches, experts at the University of Alabama at Birmingham have said.UAB Department of Nutrition Sciences Professor and Chair Timothy Garvey, M.D, revealed that a web search of ingredients getting attention recently, like Hoodia gordonii or green coffee bean extract, has exposed countless products that cannot always be trusted."There are little or no rigorous data addressing the efficacy of these sorts of compounds. People buying these products are likely to be wasting money," Garvey said.Instead, Garvey added that patients with obesity complications should seek direction from their health care providers."There are proven lifestyle modification programs and medications that can be helpful," Garvey added.There are steps one can take to naturally lower appetite.
