Product Description : Meridia Weight Loss
Meridia works by boosting levels of certain
chemical messengers in the nervous system, including
serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine.
The appetite control center in the brain regulates
the amount of food eaten through feelings of hunger
and fullness. Unlike many other appetite suppressant
drugs, Meridia is not a releasing agent. It does not
get inside the cells to boost the release of neurotransmitters,
such as serotonin. Instead, as an uptake inhibitor,
Meridia works outside the cells to stop these neurotransmitters
from being reabsorbed and thereby, allowing appetite
control to last longer.
