Botox is used for many reasons, not all cosmetic. It provides relief for multiple sclerosis patients who have overactive bladders and also helps treat migraines. So because of its wide range of uses, it only seems logical that Botox might stimulate weight loss. After all, it does cause the movement of food to slow down in the stomach.
However, a new Mayo clinic study shows that Botox doesn’t help people lose/control weight.
The study involved giving 60 obese people injections of Botox in their stomachs. After two months passed, their weight was reassessed and NONE of them had budged the smallest bit on the scale. Furthermore, the safety of Botox for weight loss proves questionable.
