Supplements for weight loss don't usually do anything. They usually come with the following factors: substances that help with sugar metabolism, substances that speed up your metabolism by using caffeine loaded plants or other speedy substances found in nature, and substances that allegedly help with fat burning. Probably the only ones that truly help are the speedy stuff, but taking speedy stuff isn't a great long-term idea because when you stop taking it you will experience a let-down, which will also slow your metabolism again since you did it without changing your life, just by swallowing a pill. There are some supplements that work well along with an exercise program and a change in diet to speed weight loss some, but losing weight slowly is the best way to do it if you want it to be permanent. Even for those who take these supplements, in other words, it's really the exercise program and the dietary changes that provide the bulk of the weight loss over time. Now, when you say best, best means different things to different people. For some it might mean the healthiest. For others, it might mean the one that works the quickest. Best is a value judgment. People also respond differently to supplements. If you're going to try them, I'd only urge you to avoid anything sold multi-level or directly marketed only over the internet -- there is no way for anyone to randomly test these or get accurate feedback and no way to even ask where they're sourcing their ingredients. When something is on store shelves in a health food store you at least know the product is out in the open. One final category of weight loss supplements should be avoided no matter what your intent, and those are the laxatives, such as weight loss teas. Yeah, you can lose weight by shedding water and going to the bathroom a lot, but it isn't really going to stay off and you're losing nutrients as it happens. Also, most of these supplements contain ingredients that affect blood sugar, so be sure blood sugar isn't a problem for you before you take them.
