Citrus Aurantium - Potential Replacement for Ephedra - in Weight Loss Supplements

Studies show that ephedra/ephedrine can be an effective weight loss agent through its ability to increase thermogenesis and quench appetite. However, the publicity concerning adverse reactions has led to its gradual withdrawal from use by many despite the perceived consequences of obesity. Many weight loss supplements companies are now substituting citrus aurantium for ephedra in their formulations.

Citrus Aurantium & Weight Loss
Citrus aurantium, an agent containing beta agonists, has been reported to aid in weight loss in two studies and increase thermogenesis, at least to some extent, in three studies. Colker et al. (1999) reported that in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study the subjects receiving a combination of Citrus aurantium, caffeine and St John's Wort, lost significant amounts of total body weight while on a strict diet and exercise.

Those in the placebo and control groups who also were on the same restricted diet did not.

However, intergroup analysis showed no statistical significance among the weight changes in the three groups.

Three studies reported increased metabolic rates when ingesting citrus aurantium products, however, at least two of these studies were acute. At present, Citrus aurantium may be the best thermogenic substitute for Ephedrine or Ephedra However, more weight loss health studies are needed to establish this definitively.
