Diet patch for weight loss

A diet patch is a kind of peel-on-peel-off bandage that can be used on the skin of the individual. Claims made by diet patch manufacturers state that rapid weight loss can take place within three days of applying the patch on the skin. Diet Patch manufacturers also claim that there are active ingredients in these patches that assist the weight loss. Apparently these active ingredients get absorbed by the skin and seep in the body thus suppressing the individual's appetite and enhancing metabolism. However manufacturers claim that active ingredients are also commonly found in oral weight loss pills.

It seems almost utopian for any dieter to lose weight in such a short span of time without the hassles of exercise and diet menus. However even though they may come across as exceedingly favorable and dim-witted solution, these diet patches are in actuality, highly controversial and dangerous.

Even though constituents such as guarana, chromium, garcinia cambogia fucus vesiculosus also known as bladderwrack or brown seaweed and green tea extracts are been clinically studied and shown to aid in weight loss, it happens when these ingredients are consumed orally. There are no indications to show that applications of these ingredients on the skin will make the individual to lose weight.
