  • Top 5 Proven Weight Loss Ingredients

    Supplementing your fitness goals is no longer a unique privilege. In fact, you're a rarity if you aren't taking something for fat loss, energy, or muscle building. When it comes to weight loss, there are literally thousands of products to choose and this will understandably make you quite confused, frustrated, and overwhelmed. Let's take a look at the top 5 scientifically proven weight loss ingredients to help you make your decision easier.

     

    1. Caffeine

     

    We'll start the list with a fan favorite and easily the most used weight loss ingredient. Caffeine can be found in all pre-workout and thermogenic supplements. Not only will it boost your energy but it will also increase your body's fat burning potential.

     

    The way caffeine supports fat loss is through ensuring that stored fat deposits are used as a primary energy source and NOT your muscle glycogen stores. (1)

     

     

    1. Green Tea Extract

     

    Green tea has been supporting your overall health and wellness for thousands of years. Only within the last couple decades has science discovered the real benefits of green tea, ensuring it to become one of the most popular weight loss supplements.

     

    Green tea contains a special compound called epigallocatechin gallate or EGCG. This compound ensures the boost in your metabolism, thereby promoting a higher caloric burn. More calories burned gets you one step closer to achieving a caloric deficit for your weight loss. (1, 2)

     

     

    1. Cayenne Pepper Fruit Extract

     

    The same pepper that you put in your meals for the extra kick contains a special fat burning compound called Capsaicin. When you ingest Capsaicin, your body goes into overdrive, converting those stored fat deposits into usable energy. What's more, capsaicin also supports healthy digestion, healthy blood cholesterol levels, and fat burning. (3)

     

     

    1. African Mango

     

    If there's one ingredient that suddenly 'showed up' in all fat loss products across the industry, it's African Mango. Known as Irvingia Gabonensis, this compound encourages fat oxidation through boosting your metabolism and suppressing your appetite. It's also been shown to be effective at improving your cholesterol levels, making it an ideal supplement for those who are overweight with cardiovascular issues. (4)

     

     

    1. Synephrine HCL

     

    More commonly known as Bitter Orange Extract, this unique compound is found in nearly all fat loss supplements on the market. Why is it abundantly used?

     

    Studies have shown that Synephrine HCL provides you with several key weight loss benefits including blocking fat from being absorbed and stored. It helps to boost your body's metabolic response, resulting in MORE calories burned. It's also an effective appetite suppressant. (5)

     

     

    Conclusion

     

    Despite the seemingly unlimited options you have, science can narrow down which ingredients to buy if you're trying to supplement your weight loss. All of these ingredients are simple to find, inexpensive to buy, and proven by science.
