Artificial weight gainers vs Herbal weight gainers.

Some young boys and girls come with the problems of underweight body built and often seek suggestions for Dexona and Practin and B complex

Honestly saying Dexona and Cyproheptadine should not be used for weight gain which is side effect of these medicines. These hormonal and anti allergic medicine also have fatal reactions sometimes by in discriminatory use of these medicines. Side effects are imminent.

Becosules supply vitamins to your GIT and supplements the shortage of such elements in body but is not responsible for weight gain.

If at all weight gain is required, be active, take good food with iron and other essential constituents. Adequate exercise, maintain good digestion. Yes you may take safe herbals which are slow but do not interfere with normal physiological activities in the body.
