SLIMQUICK for Women? does it help?

I was looking online for vitamins and came across somthing called Slimquick for women. It claims that it is designed for women in helping with losing weight along with diet and excirse program. Has anyone tried this? And if so is it safe to take and does it really work if you include this into your diet and excirse program? I know pills dont magically make your body lose weight, but I was wondering if they actually do help alttle? I saw these pills have green tea in them and thats suppose to be good. Any advise??

I haven't tried those ones but do take Jamieson Vita Slim.  It has increased minerals that are supposed to help weightloss and may have green tea too.  I think anything that has a good balance of vitamins and minerals is safe.

I know multivitamins can be beneficial in asisting weight loss as they help in the performance of your body..

Has anyone tried Alli? Does it work or is it just another money maker for the diet industry? I've tried Hydroxy cut, and that was a waste of money.

Each of us ultimately has to make our own choice, but a word of caution whenever putting something into your body ...

There is no quick fix ..

Vitamins and Minerals do seem to help make sure we obtain the proper nutrients ..

Remember .. those ingredients listed are thought by many to be harmless herbs .. however, pharmacists and doctors now ask many questions about herbs because they are active ingredients and many comprise, react or are components of other prescription medications.

Do you suppose there is any possibility that smart advertising sells .. and that some of the claims that are made are not easily lived up to?  If they were .. don't you believe they wouldn't have to advertise .. it would be on the 6:00 news?

Best wishes with your decisions.  I personally have chosen a good healthy vitamin and mineral supplement and a balanced diet with exercise.

yes I have tried the slimquick line.  They have several to choose from I tried the one with hoodia and the week before I started that I did the 7 day bady cleans slimquick has.  I excercised and changed my diet.  Two weeks after I started taking the pills I ended up in the hospital and had to have an emergency blood transfusion.  They had to give me 3 bags of blood. Although slimquick and the change in my food diet are the omly things that were really different me and my doc couldnt say what the exact cause of the blood lose was from slimquick.  but she did strongly encourage me to stop taking it. I do know a girl who has been taking slimquick products for about 3 yrs now on and off she takes them for 2 weeks rest one week rotates like that but like I told her she exercises daily eats good so why still take it not to mention 3 years and she has maybe lost 20 pounds hmm.

Thanks for all the comments. I have desided against taking this pill. I am only taking my regular multivitamin and I will start taking flax seed for my digestive system. My diet seems to be well. I have lost 18lbs since 9/14.
