Dr Oz: A Bigger Butt With Pills
Butt enhancement pills seem to be popping up all over the internet. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Nicki Minaj have many women desperately trying to achieve a bigger backside without going under the knife. Dr Oz was hoping to keep his viewers from getting duped by fake products or online scams, so he brought in Dr Jennifer Caudle to take a closer look at some of the pills being sold today.
The big question is whether those butt enhancing supplements really work. One of the most common words used in the advertising of those products is “natural.” They also try to make it seem as if you’ll feel more beautiful and get all kinds of attention, without having to spend time in the gym.
Dr Oz also noticed that if you look at the reviews for the products, you’ll see thousands of positive ones. Shockingly, it turns out that sellers will actually pay people to buy their product and write positive reviews about it.
Dr Oz: Fake Before & After Pictures
Dr Oz then explained that his team did a little digging to find out where some of the before and after pictures promoting the products were coming from. He was able to track down the Instagram handle from which one of the pictures came from, and got in touch with the woman in the pictures. She responded by saying that she had never used the product her photos were being used to promote.
So what exactly are in those pills so many people are taking?
Dr Oz: What’s In Butt Enhancing Pills?
It turns out that there is no research to support that the ingredients found in most of the pills can help give you a bigger butt. The truth is that most of them contain a random combination of herbs and roots that can all act differently in the body. Some examples include saw palmetto, which is used for urinary symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate.
Fenugreek is a spice that is typically used for digestive issues or diabetes management, as well as to aid in milk production for breastfeeding mothers. There’s also maca powder which is typically used to increase energy and for hormonal conditions. Wild yam can work like estrogen in the body but doesn’t contain estrogen and aguaje fruit has been nicknamed “the curvy fruit” but there’s no evidence to support the fact that it could make your butt bigger.
The reality is that estrogen can have major side effects in the body, including increasing your risk of cancer.
Dr Oz: Fake Supplements
As Dr Caudle explained, butt enhancing pills full under the category of supplements and the supplement industry is poorly regulated. The products aren’t necessarily tested which is why companies are making outrageous claims and getting away with it. Dr Caudle reminded viewers that if it seems too good to be true, it likely is.
