Restoration of Spirit

Restore Your Home, Restore Your Spirit!

Clearly, Cascara shouldn't be your first choice if you're looking for a natural supplement that can help you lose weight.Another commonly used weight loss herb is chickweed (Stelleria media). This herb is a diuretic, laxative and possibly an appetite suppressant. It grows wild in many parts of the world, and may be one of the weeds attempting to take over your garden. Many people enjoy eating this CLA Safflower Oil Review herb, which is supposed to taste like spinach, and it is particularly recommended as a healthy fresh green food for caged birds and chickens.There appears to be no reason for concern about any bad side effects from either eating chickweed, or using it as a dietary supplement. But there is also no scientific evidence that it will actually help you lose weight.However, the next time you're weeding your garden you might bring some of this flavorful little plant inside for your lunch instead of throwing it on the compost pile.

You can find excellent photos of Stelleria media by using Google's image search.One herb that does have some scientific backing as a weight loss remedy is Citrus aurantium ("bitter orange," or zhi shi).Unfortunately, studies have been done on animals, not people, but one scientific study in 1999 found that rats given an extract of zhi shi in their food ate significantly less, and lost weight. We're still waiting for a study using humans.Marketers who sell this product state that the herb is a rich source of many important vitamins and flavonoids, and they say it contains some alkaloids that have been shown to break down fat and raise your resting metabolism levels. They also state that your energy will increase and your digestion will improve.
