Losing weight by using a set of healthy products, should be your priority.
We’ve decided to create a list with the top 5 healthy products that will help you get started.
We аre pretty sure that you can get a discount code or special offers for them if you do your research.
Without further ado, let’s start with the first one.
1. Green Coffee Bean Extract
When we say green coffee beans we actually refer to regular coffee beans that haven’t been roasted. According to the studies we’ve reviewed, the green coffee beans contain two substances that help with weight loss.
We talk about caffeine and chlorogenic acid.
Now you might be interested in what are their superpowers.
Well, we learned that the caffeine speeds up the fat burning processes in our body.
The chlorogenic acid specialty is to slow the breakdown of carbohydrates in the gut.
As an additional benefit, it is shown that the green coffee beans extract can lower the blood sugar levels in our body and sometimes reduce high blood pressure. Also, I’m sure that you know about the richness in antioxidants.
2. Green Tea Extract
The highlight in this product is the EGCG – the main antioxidant in the green tea extract that speeds up the fat burning process in our body.
This is why you probably see the green tea extract everywhere and in many weight loss products.
What does it do actually? Well, it is proven that the extract increases the activity of a hormone in our body called norepinephrine. Apparently, this hormone is responsible for the fat burning “command center” in our body.
I also found out that “its specialty” is the belly area. Which means that if you want to shrink your belly, this is probably something you should start with.
To be honest, the first time I’ve heard about this product was while researching the content for this article.
Apparently, glucomannan is a certain fiber found in the roots of the elephant yam.
The other name for glucomannan is konjac.
It’s superpowers in the ability to absorb water and turn it into a gel-like material. After this process, it remains in your gut and gives you a feeling of fullness. Logically, when you feel full you stop eating, right? Less eating = fewer calories.
According to some studies, it is shown that the consumption of glucomannan should be combined with a healthy diet if you want to see results like losing 8-10 pounds (3.6-4.5 kg) of weight in 5 weeks.
Other glucomannan healthy super powers:
- Can feed the friendly bacteria in the intestine.
- Can lower blood sugar,
- Can lower blood cholesterol and triglycerides,
- Can help with constipation.
If you are planning to try it, be advised that it is recommended to take it about half an hour before meals, using a glass with water.
4. Bitter Orange / Synephrine
This extract can be found in a type of orange called “bitter orange”.
Before you continue reading, please have in mind that because of the significant side effects (like heart issues and addiction), this extract should be used with extreme caution and in consultation with a nutritionist or weight loss specialist.
This extract is connected to ephedrine. I’m sure that you might have seen that name in many popular weight loss pills. But, we found out that the FDA banned ephedrine as a weight loss ingredient since there were serious side effects.
Now, the good news is that synephrine uses similar mechanisms like ephedrine but it is less potent.
Its superpower is that it can reduce appetite and increase the fat burning levels in our body.
The specialists say that it has good short term effectiveness in weight loss.
Good ol’ caffeine.
You know that caffeine boosts our metabolism. But it can also enhance the fat burning levels in our body.
The caffeine is our favorite psychoactive substance. We can find it (naturally) in coffee, green tea, and chocolate. Also, it is manually added to many processed foods and drinks.
Additionally, we can see it as an ingredient in many weight loss products.
Its superpowers lie in the ability to boost our metabolism and with that, speed up the fat burning processes.
As with the other extracts above, when it comes to results, the caffeine’s ability to contribute to losing weight is only short term.
But, before you are going all in for more caffeine, have in mind that there are side effects.
Higher consumption of caffeine can cause anxiety, irritability, nausea diarrhea and other side effects.
To consume it just drink better coffee and green tea. As a bonus, you will get antioxidants and other health benefits.
