Fat Melting just got easier!

Here are 5 supplements that will help you on your fat-melting quest

Fish Oil Supplements1. Omega 3s or Fish Oil

How They Melt Fat: omega-3s enable weight loss by switching on enzymes that trigger fat-burning in cells. They also help to boost mood, which may help reduce emotional eating. And omega 3s might improve leptin signaling in the brain, causing the brain to turn up fat burning and turn down appetite.

2. Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)

How It Melts Fat: CLA is a fatty acid that is created when bacteria ferments the food in the first part of the stomach of cows, sheep, and other ruminant animals. The CLA that is created through fermentation then makes its way into the meat and milk of these animals.

When we consume these foods, the CLA helps blood glucose enter body cells, so CLA can be burned for energy and not stored as fat. CLA also helps to promote fat burning, especially in muscles, where the bulk of our calorie burning takes place.

Note: To get a therapeutic dose of this supplement from food, you will have to eat about 20kg of organic grass fed beef! (Isn’t this article about weight loss?!) Taking a capsule 3 times a day will be a lot easier for you to manage. 🙂

Green Tea3. Green Tea

How it Melts Fat: Green tea contains a vast amount of Polyphenols, which are the antioxidants that give it its metabolism-boosting punch. Research shows it can boost resting metabolic rate by up to a whopping 17 percent, helping the body to burn more fat. One recent study done on rats found that EGCG, the polyphenol in green tea, blocked weight gain and prevented metabolic syndrome when rats were fed a high-fat diet. You can actually feel this effect after you drink the tea. Your body will literally heat up as your cells waste calories as heat.

Note: To get the recommended dose of EGCG, you will have to drink 25-30 cups a day. Don’t let us stop you from doing that! You might, however, want to consider green tea in capsule form to get easier results.

4. Whey protein

How it Melts Fat: The sports nutrition department at Mr Vitamins has been promoting the benefits of whey protein for years – but mainly for building muscle, which it appears to do. However, whey protein also suppresses appetite, thus helping you eat less. Whey protein, which as you can guess is derived from the whey of milk, is an easily digestible form of protein. It contains high levels of the amino acid cysteine.  And having more muscle helps you to lose weight too.

5. L-Carnitine

How it Melts Fat: L-carnitine, an amino acid, is directly responsible for transporting long-chain triglycerides, or fat, into the cells for energy production. It works with an enzyme called CPT-1, which comes from omega-3 fatty acid intake, to shuttle fat into the cell mitochondria, where it is burned in a process called beta-oxidation.
