Lime Oral Drop

Weight loss and weight maintenance

Reduction in appetite

Unnatural or excessive accumulation of fat is known as obesity or overweightness, which can be a threat to an individual’s health. Diffuse obesity and abdominal obesity, both entail higher risks of mortality. Generally, Body Mass Index (BMI) is a convenient indicator for categorization of overweightness and obesity in adults, which can be calculated by division of body mass (kg) by square of height (m) (kg/m2). According to the definition by World Health Organization (WHO), BMI≥25 is considered overweight and BMI ≥30 obese. In 2005, 1.6 billion individuals over 15 years of age were overweight and at least 400 million obese and at least 20 million children younger than 5 were overweight. Currently, overweightness and obesity is on the rise in low and middle income countries.

The main cause of obesity and overweightness is an imbalance in caloric intake and output. Obesity can have dangerous consequences like cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, musculoskeletal disorders, especially osteoarthritis and some types of cancer, like cancers of endometrium, breast and colon.

To lose weight and treat obesity, several pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments exist, none of which have definitive results. Based on the carried out researches, to lose weight and maintain it, also to physically improve the body and increase muscle mass without fat, substances extracted from citruses can be orally used in human. Also, to reduce or control weight, these substances can be used while simultaneously limiting calorie intake or not. The mechanism of action has been proposed to be thermogenesis (increase in rate of metabolism and facilitation of lipolysis) and hunger suppression, the latter being more evident with intake of larger doses and in individuals in whom active ingredients penetrate the Blood Brain Barrier more easily.

3 times per day, take 15 drops each time with some fluids after meal.
