苦橙减肥安全有效吗?

回答 Brent A. Bauer, M.D.

尽管一些研究表明,当与节食和运动相结合时,苦橙(酸橙)可帮助适度减肥,但也许不值得去冒险。这是因为苦橙可能会导致严重的健康问题。因此,如果您想减肥,应坚持更健康的方法,不要使用苦橙。

苦橙提取物常被用作减肥补充剂。苦橙中含有辛弗林,它与麻黄中的主要化学物质十分类似。麻黄已被美国食品药品监督管理局禁止使用,因为它会升高血压,并与心脏病发作和卒中有关。

与麻黄一样,辛弗林可能会加快心率并升高血压。据报告,某些人在单独服用苦橙或与咖啡因等其他兴奋剂同时服用后,会发生卒中和心脏病发作。此外,苦橙可能与一些处方药发生相互作用。

请记住,虽然草本补充剂可能是天然的,但这并不代表它是安全的。在服用草本补充剂前,请咨询医生。
