Hi there,
NuvaGenic & Solpria are being promoted on women's health website as effective weight loss pills and they are herbal hence no side effects. I need you to confirm if the information claimed by these website or companies are true and these products are safe to use with no negative / side effects. Also are these products really effective to whatever extent they claim??
looking forward to hear form you !!!
Thank you !!

Hello XXXXXXX and welcome to XXXXXXX

Thank you for writing to us.

The medications you have mentioned in your query are herbal products, and as they are still new in the market, you can never be sure about the possible side-effects they can have. At present, the companies manufacturing them claim they have absolutely no side-effects, but this is only a fresh claim, and will change soon, as no drug is available without side-effects. It all depends on how severe or mild these side-effects will be.

There are no documented studies or researches conducted to prove that either of these products is safe or effective for weight loss. Thus, I would not be able to comment on their efficacy. In majority of cases, these herbal products have not been effective.

I would just like you to know that herbal products are released in the market without any prior license from Drug Control Centers, as these centers only study and control non-herbal medications. Thus, this could mean that herbal drugs could carry a risk-free release of a product to the population.

I would also like to add that not just in India, but even internationally there are only 2-3 medications (eg. orlistat, lorcaserin, phentermine, etc.) that have been approved for treating obesity (but all these drugs have a long-list of serious side-effects), which is why they are avoided to a large extent.

I hope you found my response helpful and informative. Do write back to me for any further clarifications, or you could rate my answers after closing this discussion.

Best wishes.
