Most important in fat loss is diet, but some supplements can help speed up that process. Here are my top 5 fat loss supplements.
It’s no secret that protein is a gym junkie’s best friend. But it actually does more than just carve cut muscles—a 2014 meta-analysis in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition found that people lost roughly 10 pounds after incorporating whey protein into their diet. And the milk derivative actually outperforms other protein sources: Overweight individuals who drank one whey protein shake a day lost more weight than those who drank a soy protein shake, according to a study in the Journal of Nutrition.
Caffeine is the most popular fat loss stimulant on the market and, while it may not be the most popular fat loss supplement overall, it’s popularity is still very high (credit coffee for that) and it is found in most fat burning supplements with multiple ingredients.
The reason for this is all traced back to it’s main action, the ability to block adenosine receptors.
Adenosine receptors normally cause sedation so, when they are blocked, wakefulness occurs.
Now, there are a few adenosine receptors and some do different things than others. While wakefulness will always happen with caffeine for a short time, until you become tolerant to caffeine, adrenaline can also be released.
Green Tea seems to be all the rage these days. As well as being packed full of antioxidants, it’s also a potent metabolism booster.
Green Tea contains Epigallocatechin Gallate (usually referred to as EGCG), which is a potent ingredient shown to increase your metabolic rate and get your body burning more fat.
The other good thing about Green Tea is that it’s believed to boost endurance, meaning that you’ll be able to train harder and for longer.
The most abundant amino acid naturally produced by your body, glutamine is found in the largest amounts in your muscles, helping repair them, maintain a healthy gutOpens a New Window., and stabilize your blood sugar. A study last year in the European Journal of Clinical NutritionOpens a New Window. found that without changing their diets at all, people lost weight after taking glutamine supplements for four weeks, likely because it helped boost glucose metabolism.
Along with Green Tea, we place Cayenne Pepper as one of the top two best fat burning ingredients around right now.
Just like Green Tea, Cayenne is a potent metabolism booster shown to increase your metabolic rate and get you burning more calories even while resting.
Cayenne contains a substance called Capsaicin, which has been shown to boost energy consumption and therefore help you to burn more calories.
And to double up, Cayenne has also been shown to help suppress appetite at the same time, so it can also help to make it easier to stick to your diet.
