Curb Appetite Suppressant is marketed as a “natural appetite control formula”. Designed to help you naturally reduce your appetite and hunger, VH Nutrition’s Curb is a dietary supplement that supposedly does not rely on a single ingredient to deliver results. Instead it is “formulated on a proprietary matrix of natural herbs and extracts.”
All the being said, here are the ingredients that were a part of the Curb formula when this review was written: Yerba Mate, Green Tea, Garcinia Cambogia, Hoodia Gordonii, Dandelion Root, Bitter Orange and Irvingia Gabonesis.
The recommended dosage is to take 2 capsules with water every 4 to 6 hours or as needed to control appetite. Users are cautioned to avoid using stimulants in excess while taking Curb because this could cause sleep disturbances, anxiety and nervousness.
With the exception of dandelion root, which reduces water retention, all the other ingredients in this formula are believed to aid in appetite suppression. That being said, more research needs to be conducted to determine the effects these herbs have on the body as well as how safe they are. What’s more, even if the blend of these ingredients should reduce your appetite (although there is no proof that this will happen) this doesn’t mean that you will experience weight loss. You still need to adhere to a calorie-controlled healthy diet and engage in regular exercise if you want to see measurable fat loss occur.
It should also be noted that while on the manufacturer’s official product page for Curb Appetite Suppressant it says that “Curb does not rely on intense stimulants such as Caffeine to control hunger,” this doesn’t mean this product is without stimulants.
On the contrary, the formula contains bitter orange, also known as citrus aurantium. This herb naturally contains a stimulant called synephrine. It is believed to function as an appetite suppressant, metabolism booster and thermogenic (enables the body to burn fat at a faster rate).
That being said, this stimulant can be unsafe, especially when it is combined with other stimulants like caffeine or herbs containing caffeine, such as Yerba Mate and Green Tea (both of which contain caffeine and are used in this product). When taken with caffeine, synephrine can increase a person’s risk of high blood pressure. Combined with caffeine, it can also boost the risk of other stimulant-related effects and, depending on the dosage, may increase the risk of fainting, heart attack and stroke.
Prior to taking Curb Appetite Suppressant, consider speaking with your healthcare professional.
