At some point, you have to trust your instincts, and if something smells a little fishy, you should assume that it probably is. It’s not that the Demograss Plus advertising is so outrageous. Well, actually it does try to target a lot of medical conditions, which just isn’t going to happen. But most of it is pretty tame and at best vague. So you have no choice but to move onto the ingredients to find out all that you need to know.
The Ingredients in Demograss Plus
Aloe ferox – Aloe vera, which flies under several different names, can stop stomach upset and heal skin. But that’s about it.
Aloe barbadensis – This is just another name for aloe vera.
Erythreaca stricta L – This has been used as a digestive tonic, liver cleanser, and blood purifier. But it doesn’t actually promote any weight loss benefits.
Paulinia cupana – Guarana, which is the more common name for this, has been though multiple studies, all showing that it doesn’t actually help you to lose weight.
Citrus aurantium – Citrus Aurantium is another name for the famous synephrine, which has been used to replace ephedrine as a fat burner, appetite suppressant, and energy supplement
Linum usitatissimun – More commonly known as flax, this superfood is rich in fiber and other nutrients. But it doesn’t actually promote weight loss
Marrubium Vulgare – White horehound, which is found in many popular old fashioned candies, has been used to reduce stomach upset. But that’s about it.
Alisma Plantago – As a Chinese herbal remedy, this has been used to fight edema, diarrhea, strangury, vaginal discharge, dizziness, painful urination, night sweating, and other problems, but not weight loss
Citrus limetta – Another name for lime, it is rich in vitamins and minerals, and it does have plenty of antioxidants. But that’s about it.
Achillea millefolium – Used as a diaphoretic, astringent, tonic, stimulant, and mild aromatic.
Smilax pseudo cactus – Some have used this to fight premenstrual syndrome. But it does not promote weight loss.
Pickil pear cactus – Some say that this, can block fat, which is the most common reason why it is used. But this has not actually been clinically proven.
Opintia ficus indica – Another name for the prickly pear cactus, the names technically sound different enough to fool most
Zarzaparrilla – Zarzaparrilla is the Spanish name for sarsaparilla, which has been used for a number of different problems in traditional medicine. But it doesn’t promote weight loss
Dandelion – Dandelion has been used as a mild diuretic in the past
Red tea – Red tea is another name for rooibos tea, found all over the world. But while rich in antioxidants, this is one tea that has never been clinically proven to promote weight loss results.
White tea – White tea is a “baby tea leaf”, and it’s the mildest in terms of its caffeine content and fat burning benefits. But it still has plenty of antioxidants.
Artichoke – Rich in healthy vitamins and minerals, this food may be healthy, but not a weight loss supplement
Bromeline – This pineapple extract has been used to tenderize meat. But medicinally, it works mostly as a healthy anti-inflammatory.
It’s amazing what lengths some companies will go to in order to hide the truth. Zarzaparrilla tries hding ingredients by using everything from the Spanish names to names that somebody just made up along the way (names that aren’t in any official text). And yes, Demograss Plus does repeat the same ingredients multiple times, all tactics to try to distract you from the truth.
