Weight loss supplements are a tool that can help you speed your metabolism, curb hunger, or even absorb some of your calories which come from carbs.
Here is a brief introduction of weight loss supplements and the different types:
- Thermogenics and Fat Burners
Thermogenics are usually a stimulant which contains one or more of the following: Ma-Huang, Caffeine, Green tea, Synephrine, or Guarana. The goal of thermogenics is to accelerate fat burning past the point of diet alone as well as give you energy and decrease appetite. Thermogenics such as Ma-Huang, Guarana and Caffeine are not for everyone especially if you are sensitive to stimulants or have any type of medical or heart condition. Always check with your doctor first.
- Carb Blockers
Carb blockers reportedly prevent the body from absorbing some of the unwanted starches. The active ingredient is phaseolus vulgaris otherwise known as white kidney bean extract. I don’t think anyone believes that taking a carb blocker will give you free access to all the carbs you want to consume but may be of benefit if you are an occasional cheater.
- Appetite Suppressants
Hoodia is the name you will hear come up when you are talking about suppressing your appetite. It has been said that tribesman used hoodia gordonii before a long hunt in order to control their appetite. It is said that hoodia sends signals to the brain leading the brain to think that the body is full. If your weight loss efforts seem to be hindered by a massive appetite – then perhaps hoodia is for you. Look for pure hoodia gordonii on the label.
