Dear Sue
I do not know what Omnia slimming tablets contain and if they work and/or are safe to use. You can however, judge for yourself by comparing the ingredients to the slimming pill and potion ingredients listed on the DietDoc site. Click on 'Diet & Nutrition' at the top of this page, then on 'Weight loss' and 'Diet Detective' for lists of such ingredients and potential side-effects and/or to see if they are actually linked to weightloss. In most cases these over-the-counter use the same herbal ingredients (some of which have the potential to be harmful and addictive) and then combine their product with a strict diet which is either very-low-energy (less than 800 kcal or 3,200 kJ/day) or an Atkins-type diet which prohibits carbs. Neither of these diets can be recommended, but it is often the starvation diet that causes the weightloss and not the diet product itself.
