Neither: Neither otc substitutes or quick weight loss center supplements work long term. No one knows what's in them or what they might do to your body. The only thing that gets smaller is your wallet. Invest in healthy diet and exercise to find a way to lose weight and keep it off the rest of your life. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet.

Oxyelite pro: It contains 6 active ingredients; caffeine, bacopa monniere, bauhinia purpurea, rauwolfia, cirsium oligophyllum, & geranium. They stimulate the thyroid gland & boost metabolism. It can lead to overstimulation, heart trouble, sweating, & menstrual cycle changes. I personally would not recommend it.

None: Supplements aren't going to help you lose weight. But if you're on a diet, it would be a good idea to take multivitamins to make sure you receive y our minimum daily requirements of your vitamins. No other food supplement is going to help you lose weight. The way to do it through regular exercise and watching your diet.

There are none: There are no over-the-counter weight loss supplements that have good clinical studies showing that they work. Billions of dollars are spent each year by for supplements that do not work. The fda does not control this industry because they are considered food supplements, not drugs. Read the disclaimer on all of these products that says "these statements have not been evaluated by the fda, etc.".
