ORAL WEIGHT LOSS SOLUTIONS
WHAT IS PHENTERMINE
Phentermine is a prescription medication that has been FDA approved for weight loss. This medication works as an appetite suppressant to help patients ward off cravings and better adhere to a diet and exercise regimen. It is a tool to help with weight loss and used for short term use up to 12 weeks.
In the 1990s, phentermine was combined with other weight loss drugs. This drug combination was known as fen-phen. After several reports of significant heart problems in users, the FDA pulled the other two drugs used in the treatment — fenfluramine and dexfenfluramine — from the market.
Phentermine goes by the brand names Adipex-P, Lomaira, and Suprenza, or you can find it in combination medications for weight loss, such as Qsymia. It’s a controlled substance due to its chemical similarities to the stimulant amphetamine and is therefore only available with a prescription.
Along with diet and exercise, phentermine can help those with a BMI of 27 or a more. I has also been used to help with weight loss in patients with additional condition such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes.
Phentermine helps suppress appetite. Doing so helps limit how many calories you eat which leads weight loss. The drug is thought to act by increasing neurotransmitter levels in your brain norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine. These reduce hunger.

WHAT IS OXANDROLONE
Oxandrolone is also known as Anavar. It is a steroid typically used by professional bodybuilders and athletes who are wanting to decrease fat mass and increase weight without the worry of water retention. It is now being used by many practitioners for men and women alike to aid in weight loss.
HOW DOES OXANDROLONE WORK
Oxandrolone increases muscle mass and reduce body fat in three ways:
- Inducing protein synthesis in the body
- Up regulating the androgen receptor in skeletal muscle.
- Increasing IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor)
Oxandrolone given to healthy men, has been shown to increase protein synthesis by as much as 44% and improve effects of resistance training.
Some studies have shown that Oxandrolone can significantly reduce the thyroid-binding globulin as well as increase thyroxine-binding prealbumin. In other words, it increases the hormone that is responsible for the bodies metabolism, allowing a person to lose more fat than people who may not use this product. It can also help people gain more muscle mass.
Oxandrolone is a steroid that is milder, meaning that you will notice fewer side effects when compared to Testosterone. Oxandrolone can be given to both men and women without many side effects.

There is no evidence to suggest that short term use of Oxandrolone had led to the development of liver function impairment.
Other side effects in males include:
- Testicular atrophy
- Inhibition of testicular function (infertility)
- Impotence (Erectile Dysfunction)
- Priapism (Prolonged Erection)
- Bladder Urgency and Frequency (worsening of lower urinary tract symptoms)

Methionine can also be converted to cytosine, the precursor of glutathione, which is essential in detoxification of the liver.
Inositol supports the transfer of nutrients at the cellular level. It has been shown to convert fat into other useful forms of energy and assists in establishing healthy cell membranes thus facilitating nerve impulses.
Choline assists in controlling cholesterol levels in the blood and in controlling weight gain by maintaining healthy cell membranes. Choline has been linked to and directly associated in the maintenance of the nervous system, assisting memory, and is critical for normal cell membrane structure and function. Choline is the precursor of betaine which is helps in liver function and in the formation of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.
