Do you want to speed up your weight-loss? Are you looking for ways to burn calories faster? There may be natural as well as artificial supplements to speed up the process of weight loss. Most of the weight loss supplements are not backed up by evidence, and the authorities ban a few supplements. These banned supplements tend to have prohibited ingredients that may lead to organ damage.
Generally, weight loss supplements have a bad reputation but a few natural ones may actually assist you in this process. This article will help you make informed decisions about weight-loss supplements. The following are different weight loss supplements which will be explained in detail:
- Green Tea;
- Raspberry Ketones;
- Bitter Orange;
- Apple Cider Vinegar;
- Whey Protein;
- Garcinia Cambogia.
For a long time green tea has been believed to aid weight loss and help in food digestion. Indeed, research shows it is beneficial for the proper functioning of the digestive tract. Recent studies have shown that theanine and catechins (substances in green tea) speed up the body’s metabolism and aid in curbing down the appetite. However, avoid going overboard on the consumption of green tea as it might be detrimental to health due to the caffeine content.
Recently, glucomannan has been discovered to act as a weight-loss supplement. It is derived from the konjac plant and is believed to fill up the stomach by turning water into a gel, hence reducing appetite.
Red raspberries contain a chemical called ‘Raspberry Ketones.' This chemical is used as a dietary supplement that aids in weight loss by stimulating the fat burning process.
‘Citrus Aurantium', commonly known as Bitter Orange, is a natural weight loss supplement. It is believed to help weight loss by speeding up the process of burning calories. Nonetheless, it has serious adverse effects, including being a cause of heart problems and anxiety.
Apple Cider Vinegar
A few studies have shown that acetic acid aids in burning calories and suppressing appetite. It is also beneficial in regulating sugar levels in the body. However, these studies are still in the preliminary stages and it is important to note that undiluted acetic acid consumption might lead to problems associated with the digestive system.
The milk derivative ‘Whey Protein’ is believed to be a good protein source. According to a study, drinking whey protein shake has proven to be more beneficial than consuming a soy protein shake. It is believed to enhance athletic strength and build muscle mass. It also speeds up the recovery process from strains that occurred during strength training.
Garcinia Cambogia is a tropical fruit and has recently gained popularity as a weight-loss supplement among athletes. It does this by having the ability to curb down the appetite. Additionally, this supplement disintegrates citrate lyase, an enzyme involved in producing fatty tissues.
Many people doing strength training or athletes also use prescribed weight-loss supplements. However, it is important to note that an individual can only lose weight after adopting a healthy lifestyle, including a healthy diet and exercise. No supplements can assist in weight loss on their own. Remember to consult your dietician to get medical advice before starting to take any weight-loss supplements.
