But most of these products are useless and instead of causing weight loss cause immense harm to the body. Various other products are still undergoing research in order to determine whether they are actually helpful in causing weight loss. Laxatives have also been considered by many as being an efficient means of losing weight.

However, one must remember that while the taking of considerable quantities of laxatives can facilitate weight loss, it can also cause certain damaging effects to certain organs of the body. For example, it can cause weakening of the bones of the body resulting in a disease known as osteomalacia and can permanently harm the GI tract. Moreover, it is necessary to keep in mind here that weight loss can have negative effects in the form of bulimia or anorexia and in various cases it has been noticed that those victims of these diseases have adopted the consumption of laxatives to ensure rapid weight loss. Usage of laxatives is considered detrimental to the health of pregnant women.
