There was a time when Angelina Jolie was the hottest woman on the planet. The skinny frame was golden, the late 90s and early 2000s were for the model size 4 and below. Ladies starved and literally worked their buttocks off in the gym to fit the acceptable highly appealing skinny girl frame until anti-anorexic chants started. Times have changed; this is the era of the THICK woman, Kim K, Beyonce, Cardi B, Omotola and Princess Shingle. The only part the ladies want skinny is the waist, every other part has to be THICK. Ladies have gone desperate in the search for thickness; enter Apetamine, Maca and all sorts of products notorious for their thickening ability. It is time to break down these substances, dispel some myths and set the facts right.
According to manufacturing labels, 5ml of this syrup contains
- L-lysine hydrochloride: 150 mg
- Cyproheptadine hydrochloride: 2 mg
- Vitamin B6: 1 mg
- Vitamin B1: 2 mg
- Vitamin B3: 15 mg
- An alternative form of vitamin B5): 4.5 mg
The two most important ingredients are the ones in bold. Lysine is an essential amino acid (protein building block) and 150mg sure adds to the weight gain claim. Cyproheptadine on the other hand is sedating antihistamine (not to be taken without recommendation by a doctor or pharmacist) that stimulates appetite as its side effect. Its use as an appetite boost is not exactly recommended except for people recovering from serious illness. So this product enhances thickness (enlarged breasts and buttocks) by basically supplying your body with building block and causing you to eat more than usual. There is no guarantee that the weight would be directed to choice areas, it is actually a gamble totally dependent on body type. An ectomorph would likely get enlarged breasts, a curvy backside and thicker thighs while the mesomorphs and endomorphs might become balls.
The following side effects of consuming these two substances would show that you are better off drinking milk, eating more on your own accord and hitting the gym for squats:
Side effects of lysine:
- Abdominal Pain
- Chronic renal failure
Side effects of Cyproheptadine:
- CNS Depression
- Euphoria & Seizures
- Early menses
- Tightness of chest
Maca or Peruvian ginseng (Peruvian hair-Peruvian buttocks eh) is a plant with so many mind blowing potential benefits (- increasing libido, reducing erectile dysfunction, reducing blood pressure et al) yet it is its ability to produce curvier women that remains its strongest selling point. It achieves this by supposedly increasing estrogen (hormone) levels that helps redistribute fat to the breasts and buttocks and also increasing appetite.
Maca is “natural” yet it doesn’t come without some dangers. The increased estrogen increases chances of developing or worsening estrogen dependent cancers (breasts, uterine and ovarian). Consult your pharmacist before you start that Maca supplementation so a risk assessment can be done for you.
As you strive to fit into society’s standard of beautiful, remember every lady doesn’t have to be exotic-chick-out-the-rain-forest to be attractive. There are still some of us out there that would do with less load, put YOUR HEALTH FIRST in all decision making. I would take questions in the comments section.
