Dear Adrenucleo
This supplement contains vitamin C and 8 B vitamins, 2 trace elements namely chromium and vanadium plus an extract of the adrenal glands of a cow and some extract of prickly pear cactus. The vitamins will boost your health esp if you are using a very-low-energy diet which does not contain these vitamins in adequate quantities. The chromium helps to normalise blood glucose levels which may assist weightloss. I cannot comment about the adrenal gland or prickly pear extracts as I have not come across any scientific publications that support their use in health or slimming supplements. Do not take more than 1 tablet a day as the vitamin contents per tablet are very high - far in excess of the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance).
Best regards
