3 Fat Loss Supplements That Actually Work

Published

Fat Loss Supplements

Exercise and diet combined still don’t show improvement in your weight, and with that, you think only a miracle would cut off your fats. Now, maybe that miracle you’ve been longing for comes in capsules brought to you by science.

Here are three supplements that can help you lose weight and will not leave you in despair.

Yohimbine

Often sold in capsules, yohimbine is a fat burner that is recommended to be taken in 0.2 mg per kilogram of bodyweight to successfully cut fat without harming heart health.

One study observed 20 obese females who were asked to eat a diet composed of 1,000 calories for three weeks. Half of the participants received 5 mg of yohimbine supplements, while the other half were given placebo and they will have to take them four times daily.

The group of women who took 5 mg of yohimbine remarkably lost more weight by nearly eight pounds compared to those who took placebo who only lost five pounds.

Twenty soccer athletes also participated in a study analyzing the effects of yohimbine. Some of them were assigned to take 20 mg of the supplement twice a day for 21 days, while some were provided placebo.

Results showed that the individuals who took yohimbine had 1.8 percent less of body fat than those who took placebo.

Forskolin

Coleus forskohlii is a herb that is used to treat certain diseases in the gastrointestinal, cardiovascular and central nervous system. However, the plant is now used as a fat burner because of its forskolin content.

Forskolin, an active ingredient of Coleus forskohlii, enhances cellular levels of a certain molecule known as cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP). The increase in the cAMP levels has shown to affect the increased rate of weight loss.

One study where 23 females supplemented on forskolin twice a day for 12 weeks showed that the component didn’t induce weight loss but rather helped in mitigating weight gain.

In another study, 30 men who are overweight and obese were divided into two groups where the first group is assigned to take 250 mg of Coleus forskohlii extract twice per day for 12 weeks and the other 15 took the same amount of placebo.

It was found that the group of men who took forskolin supplement significantly lost more fat, though their total body weight remained the same.

Therefore, supplementation with forskolin may not induce weight loss, however, it appears to prevent weight gain in women and improve body composition in men.

A 250 mg of Coleus forskohlii supplement containing 10 percent of forskolin twice a day or a daily dose of 500 mg is recommended to burn those unwanted fats.

Synephrine

Synephrine is a compound present in bitter orange, native to Asia, that can reduce the appetite, thus leads to weight loss. It is also assumed to trigger thermogenesis, which can cut off weight by boosting the body’s metabolism.

According to one study, 50 mg of synephrine increased the basal metabolic rate without altering the heart rate or blood pressure, thereby causing weight loss from the fat breakdown activity.

However, it is difficult to determine the effectiveness of synephrine since it is being combined with caffeine in weight losing agents used in studies. Therefore, it is hard to really interpret that thermogenesis and weight loss are direct outcomes of synephrine supplementation.

Although these supplements has shown effectiveness in several studies conducted, it can still potentially interact with many medications especially those for the heart. It is still better to consult with your doctor before taking such supplements.
