When it comes to taking any form of medication, we also should be aware of their respective side effects so as to avoid any complications. Weight-loss drugs and supplements are no exceptions. This leads us to the questions’ “does Sensa have side effects?” and “is Sensa safe to take?”
Like every other weight-loss product in the market, Sensa has its share of reported side effects and health dangers from its users. The first, most alarming fact that questions the product’s safety is that it is not FDA-approved, although Sensa’s ingredients has been evaluated as safe by the agency and obviously, it’s more of a food and not a drug, thus the less alarming it is, or it seems to be, in terms of safety. Its ingredients’ maltodextrin and tricalcium phosphate are actually found in safe food products such as baby food, salad dressing, and yoghurt. Also, the weight-loss product has no calories, fat, sugar, or sodium in it, which is all weight gainers and can be harmful for your body. But its ingredients can actually be allergic for some and thus is not advised for use. Since Sensa contains lactose and soy, it is a big no-no for lactose intolerants. For people who are actually allergic to maltodextrin, one of the product’s core ingredients, taking the product could result in hives or rashes. Also carmine, a food coloring agent found in Sensa, can cause anaphylaxis, itchiness, and also hives.
The most common side effects associated by Sensa are diarrhea, hives, stomach pain, and vomiting, gas, and a change in bowel movement. Other side effects that may mostly be because of an unknown allergy to the product and its ingredients are difficulty in breathing, dizziness, and swelling. These have all been recognized by Sensa’s manufacturer as true. More serious side effects have been reported by some users of the product such as constipation, dry mouth, gall bladder and kidney problems, recurring headaches, intestinal blockage, and rectal bleeding. These claims have not been acknowledged by its manufacturer and regard these as highly unlikely and untrue.
Sensa’s seemingly innocent side effects can in fact actually lead to more serious medical conditions. Since it suppresses your appetite by convincing your brain that you are full, it has been clinically proven that despite being able to lose weight, you risk developing gastritis and other digestive problems, as well as respiratory problems. These might be the prices you’ll have to pay for trying to lose a few pounds and fat here and there.
But don’t be too harsh on Sensa and make any judgments when you haven’t even tried using it. Unlike many of the other weight-loss products you can buy in the market, it is one of the few that are generally safe. It does not involve any kind of drugs, toxic chemicals, or stimulants. And in the first place, to avoid such side effects from occurring, you should be aware of any allergies or medical conditions you might have that could be triggered or worsened by using Sensa. Also, always seek your doctor’s advice when thinking about getting into any type of weight-loss product.
