Weight Loss: Natural Supplements

Thursday, 20 Jan 2011 04:22 PM

Most diet pills or weight loss supplements marketed with promising results and exorbitant price tags are either amphetamines that reduce appetite or diuretics and laxatives which produce a temporary, illusory weight loss by causing water loss.

But if chosen correctly and prudently, herbs and natural weight loss supplements can really help you lose those unwanted and unhealthy extra pounds safely. Here are a few proven weight loss tips and natural weight loss supplements which are sure to spell success.

Garcinia Camboja: This small purplish fruit contains an active chemical compound called hydroxy citric acid or HCA. HCA assists in weight loss by regulating metabolism and blocking fat production. HCA inhibits the conversion of sugars and starch into fat. Camboja also alters the levels of a key weight loss stimulating neurotransmitter, serotonin.

Green Tea Extracts: Green tea boasts of an arsenal of essential nutrients, antioxidants, chemical compounds, and volatile oils which possess substantial metabolism boosting and fat burning properties. The polyphenols, especially epigallo catechin gallate or EGCG, play a key role in inducing weight loss and promoting health. These natural supplements are available across the counter in capsules, tea bags, or in dried form.

Psylium Husk: These fiber dense weight loss supplements cleanse toxins out of the system. It also helps improve digestion, reduces appetite, stimulates metabolism, and improves bowel movements. Adding 100 gms of psylium husk provides approx 70 gms of soluble fiber. This is one of the simplest ways to achieve healthy weight loss naturally.

Guggul: A resin derived from an Indian thorny plant, guggul qualifies as a natural weight loss supplement owing to its effect on the thyroid hormone which is involved in carbohydrate and fat metabolism. Guggulosterones present in this supplement are shown to have cholesterol and triglyceride lowering properties.

Hoodia and goji berry: Rich in antioxidants, appetite altering and disease fighting attributes, these natural supplements make weight loss quite easy. Available as juice, gels, powders, or pills, they ward off cravings, build up immunity, and improve liver function.
Eat sensibly, exercise regularly, and add these natural weight loss supplements to your weight loss regime to achieve your dream weight quickly and naturally.
