If you want to know anything about supplements, get a copy of the "Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements" by Dr. Lyle MacWilliams. He has tested over 2000 different supplements for content, purity, and bioavailability. This is real testing, using scientific methods, not just reading the blurbs on the packaging. It will amaze you how low most of the big name supplements score.
If you are serious about losing weight, and keeping it off longterm, you have to change your dietary habits, which includes your drinking habits, get execise on a regular basis, and maintain that program over the long term.
I wouldn't trust any "magic bullet" claims made for weight loss by a pill. Supplements are regulated under food regulations, not drug regulations, so are liable to contain just about anything, including ingredients which are illegal for dietary use, and some which may actually be harmful. Again, I recommend the Comparative Guide.
There is a system offered by Usana Health Sciences which basically retrains your digestive system to want less of the foods which are fattening and unhealthy. If you want more information, look at this website - www.myelaine.usana.com
Also, google "Glycemic Index" for information on how different foods are converted to sugars and stored or used by your body.
I hope this helps.
