Generika Drugstore offers safe weight-loss supplement, Lobese
With the number of weight loss drugs and dietary supplements available on the market, consumers are often trying to find the right one to fit their bodies and lifestyles. Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seal of approval is present on many of these drugs and supplements, that does not necessarily mean that they are safe. Many of these weight loss drugs and supplements, or “pampa” drugs—pampapayat (slimming), pampaputi (whitening), etc.—come from other countries in Southeast Asia, such as Thailand and China, and are sold online without FDA approval. The safety of some of these “pampa” drugs have been found by the FDA to cause adverse health effects ranging from skin damage to even death due to some drugs’ high mercury content. However, Generika Drugstore now offers Lobese, a safe and natural alternative to “pampapayat” drugs.
Studies show that 75% of overweight individuals are addicted to carbohydrates. Carbohydrate addiction is caused by an imbalance—an over release of the hormone, insulin. Too much insulin results in a strong impulse to eat. During the digestive process, carbohydrates from starchy foods like bread and potatoes are converted by the body into sugars.
Lobese contains the phaesolus vulgaris seed, or the common bean seed, in 500mg capsules. This means it contains high amounts of starch, protein, dietary fiber, iron, potassium, selenium, molybdenum, thiamine, vitamin B6, and folic acid. Lobese is a starch blocker and works by blocking the alpha-amylase enzyme, which contributes to weight gain by breaking down complex carbohydrates into glucose, which in turn is converted into lipids which are stored as body fat, required for the metabolism of starchy carbohydrates. The phaesolus vulgaris in Lobese will result in some ingested starches passing through the body undigested. This results in lower blood glucose levels, lower insulin levels, and ultimately lower rates of body fat storage.
The recommended dosage according to the Monthly Index of Medical Specialties, a guide to pharmaceuticals for medical practitioners, is 1-2 tablets twice daily, around 15-20 minutes before meals, and should be taken on an empty stomach. One does not need a prescription for Lobese, and it is approved by the FDA as a dietary supplement.
In addition to helping people lose weight, Lobese can also slow the progression of atherosclerosis, prevent heart attacks, reduce the risk of sudden death due to irregular heart rhythms at low doses, and at higher doses, also can treat hyper-triglyceridemia and reduce hypertension. At all doses, it can reduce joint pain, relieve morning stiffness, and can be useful in treating ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Those who took Lobese as compared to a placebo lost an average of 6.45 lb (2.93 kg) as compared to less than 1 lb (0.45 kg) on the placebo.
Lobese is manufactured by Zifam Pinnacle Pty Ltd., an Australian pharmaceutical company with a significant multinational presence in the Asia-Pacific Rim, ensuring that Lobese is a legitimate product distributed locally by an award-winning drugstore chain, Generika Drugstore.
