Experts seem to agree that weight loss can be achieved by:
1. doing each day a reasonable amount of exercise such as Aerobics, Weight Training and Yoga.
2. choosing a suitable diet with a reduced calorie level.
However you might decide to add some supplements to your chosen diet and they, according to the promises, should help you to succeed in a better and faster way with your desired weight loss.
Our goal is to identify some weight loss supplement which could really help and hopefully to find the best weight loss supplements.
There are different categories of supplements as follows:
* Appetite Suppressants
* Carb Blockers
* Cortisol Regulation Products
* Fat Blockers
* Thermogenic Fat Burners and Stimulant-Free Fat Burners
* Thyroid Hormone
Appetite Suppressants have the purpose to reduce your appetite and therefore the calorie level absorption.
Carb Blockers products try to block the absorption of carbohydrates They can be a useful addition especially if you follow a low carbohydrates diet.
Cortisol is a hormone which is produced by the adrenal gland when the body is under stress. Cortisol has an important role in blood sugar regulation, energy production and other important body functions. High cortisol levels seem to be connected to weight gain. There are some supplements such as vitamin C, B5, B6 and other nutrients which affect the production of cortisol and can therefore be used in a weight loss program.
Fat Blockers bind to the fat in digestive tract. The more famous one is Chitosan.
The Thermogenic Fat Burners have the purpose to raise your metabolism in order to burn more calories. The Stimulant-Free Fat Burners are similar, but they they do not contain any type of stimulants (e.g. no caffeine).
Thyroid Hormone products aim to optimize the secretions of your thyroid and this increase together with proper exercise will cause fat burning.
Recently there has been a lot of talk about some superfoods that should help your weight reduction program and your general health. They are the following
a) Acai Berry It is a small, black round berry which has one of the higher anti-oxidant concentration (higher than the pomegranate and blueberries). It causes a weight loss increase, cleanses the body and intestines and improves the digestive function.
b) Resveratrol. It is found in the skin of red grapes and is a constituent of red wine. It is an appetite suppressor with a high antioxidant content and helps to speed up your metabolism.
The conclusion of this investigation are the following:
a) There are many products on the market and it is difficult to make an objective selection of the best weight loss supplements.
b) Many products seem to over promoted and hyped and, according to some statistics almost 95% of them do not produce any serious weight loss results.
b) It is advisable to seriously investigate product reviews before making any choice. Moreover it would be advisable to inform the doctor and ask his opinion. Some products might have side effects for some people.
c) Many products are sold online, but there have been reports of scams such as offers of free products which are later charged at a too high price because of small print conditions which are not explained clearly to the purchaser. The advice is to choose only reliable companies and to read all purchase conditions before placing any order.
