Acomslia (Rimonabant 20 mg tablets)

Acomslia is a diet pill and it considered as an experimental pill that offers the promise of helping people lose weight and quit smoking simultaneously.

This is the for the first time a diet pill is launched which is to have an additional function as an antismoking drug other than a weight loss drug.

The main component of Acomslia  diet pill is Rimonabant. It works by blocking CB1 receptor, one of two receptors found in a newly described physiological system called the Endocannabinoid System (EC System), believed to play a critical role in the regulation of food intake and energy expenditure.

This anti smoking diet pill is aimed at blocking the CB1 receptors of the brain commonly called the ‘pleasure centre’ of the brain and interfering with the cycle of craving and satisfaction thus making hunger or cigarette pangs more manageable.

These receptors are present not only in the hypothalamus region of the brain, but also throughout the body, notably in fat cells-- which are involved in lipid and glucose metabolism. They work by reducing dependence on tobacco, suppressing appetite and restoring the balance in the system. Some analysts have also started considering Acomslia  Rimonabant as a heart drug. Its medicinal implications on major cardiovascular risk factors – smoking and obesity can be considered a major medical advance for patients at risk of heart disease.
