Fat Burning Supplements

When your most hyper exercise plan and weight loss diet strategy seems to be not enough, this is the time when supplements come in.

A food supplement is a preparation intended to supply the diet and provide nutrients that may be lacking or may not be consumed by an individual in sufficient quantities.

According to Jaime Filer’s article entitled Different Types of Fat Loss Supplements from BodyBuilding.com, there are 7 types of supplements for weight loss. These are thermogenics, stimulant-free fat burners, carbohydrate blockers, fat blockers, thyroid regulators, appetite suppressant, and cortisol blockers.

Thermogenics help raise your body temperature internally so that your body heats up and ends up burning more calories overall at the end of the day.

Stimulant-Free Fat Burners are fat burners minus the stimulants –  ingredients of other supplements which have side effects such as agitation, palpitation and nervousness.

Carbohydrate Blockers prevent the digestion of carbohydrates that you ingest, therefore limiting the amount of carbs that you absorb, and also the fats that you store.

Fat Blockers are the somewhat the same as carbohydrate blockers, but what is not absorbed by your body is the fat in the food that you ingest.

Thyroid regulators stimulate your thyroid gland to increase your body’s metabolism. The thyroid gland is responsible for secreting hormones which are responsible for your body’s metabolic rate.

Appetite suppressants reduce your appetite and cause you to eat less.

Cortisol blockers regulate the hormone cortisol, and increase metabolism to ensure weight loss. Apart from helping to shed some extra pounds, cortisol blockers are believed to assist in muscle building, for which they are used by a large number of people as muscle building supplements.

Just like fat burning pills, these supplements have side effects and certain actions to your body which can benefit you and harm you at the same time. So it is best to consult a physician before you try to use them, and follow directions. Remember, supplements only help you, and they are not the major things with regards to your weight loss plan. Exercise and a proper diet is still the best and the safest for anyone who wants to look good and feel good.
