Weight Loss Home > Akavar

Akavar is a non-prescription weight loss supplement that claims to cause weight loss, regardless of what you eat. However, there is a lack of scientific evidence supporting this claim. Several ingredients in Akavar contain caffeine, so it is reasonable to assume that these ingredients may suppress the appetite and possibly increase metabolism. Possible side effects include insomnia and a rapid heart rate.
