Hardly weight loss

Hello everyone my name is Lita and i am 25 years old. I tried to lose weight doing exercises last 6 month, but there is no effect. My metabolism is too low and it's very hard to lose even a little weight. Two days ago i started to take some medical product called Lipovon. Anyone know it? If yes tell me something about it?

It's never a good idea to use weight loss products like this.  First off, you don't really know what you're getting and secondly, it's almost a given that you will gain back any lost weight as soon as you stop using the product -- IF you manage to lose weight on it to begin with!

You'd be far better off to implement a healthy eating regimen, along with moderate exercise.

I prefer to lost weight doing exercises, but sometimes i don't have enough time. I read their website and i think this is a natural product, so it can't be dangerous...

I think a very common misconseption is that just because something is "natural" or "organic" means it is safe. There are countless "natural" things that are unsafe, a whole lot more than are safe. Are eating leaves and bark healthy? No, but their "natural". I would be cautios when a company tries to push a product because it is "natural"

I don't think all the evidence is in, regarding Hoodia yet.  Look at how many people lost weight with ephedra, only to find out, after it had been on the market for years. that it was very likely to cause fatal heart attack.

I think there is a difference between ephedra and hoodia,  they've got different origin

Yes, hoodia and ephedra have different origins; I was merely using them for comparison.  Often something comes on the market that appears to be safe, only to be found years later, that it's not.

I fully understand that hoodia comes from a cactus, but when you buy a product in the store, you really have no idea if it's authentic or not.  You also, don't know about other ingredients in the product.  

Aside from that, those who lose weight with aids like that, are much more likely to gain back the weight, once the weight loss aid is stopped, and none of them are intended for continuous/indefinite use.

It's much safer to lose weight by implementing a healthy diet with moderate exercise, losing approx 1-2 pounds/week; you'll be much more likely to keep off the weight, by making lifestyle changes vs a "diet".

I think these kind of products are made for people who don't  have enough time to do exercises, people who work all day... i used to train in the gym 3 days weekly, but sometimes i don't have much time too.
