What are fat burning supplements for?
The Fat Burning supplements have as function as the name suggests to use fats for energy purposes to do this the composition of the supplements contained in it and mainly composed of stimulants and thermogenic as they can be e.g. caffeine, able to increase the metabolism thus increasing the energy expenditure so that the body indirectly uses fats for energy, promoting the reduction of adipose tissue.
Which all this seems very simple but it is not quite so, although these supplements are useful for those who want to decrease excess fat. Supplements alone are not enough because, as already mentioned in other articles, it is very important to follow a correct and healthy eating followed by healthy physical movement with a well-structured workout.
But what are the best fat burning supplements?
We have different types of supplements that Bulk Powders makes available starting from the Cutting Edge of the Pro Series , this capsule supplement contains 10 active ingredients that promote metabolic elevation and loss of fatty tissue, among the main active ingredients we have:
Glucomannan 3000 mg : top quality powder obtained from the konjac plant. This water-soluble fiber promotes fat loss by increasing the feeling of satiety, thus avoiding excessive consumption of snacks between meals. Glucomannan has also been shown to help maintain normal blood cholesterol levels and improve intestinal health.
400 mg green coffee extract : this popular fat loss supplement is made from unroasted green coffee beans and has earned a well-deserved reputation in the world of sports nutrition. Thanks to an exceptional 50% chlorogenic acid content (the active ingredient present in green coffee), this high quality extract is far more powerful than competing products, which generally contain only 20% of it.
L-Phenylalanine 400 mg : this pure form of phenylalanine is present in protein-rich foods. L-Phenylalanine exerts a strong appetite suppression effect, stimulating cholecystokinin (CCK) and thus promoting the digestion of fat and proteins. In addition, L-phenylalanine is effective in improving mood, a feature that helps maintain a positive mental approach when dieting.
Caffeine 300 mg : it is an extremely popular stimulant, which promotes fat loss and appetite suppression. Caffeine has also been shown to reduce the level of perceived physical exertion (how hard a person feels they are exercising), thus allowing them to practice more intensively and for longer, resulting in more fat burning. In addition, caffeine is known for its effects on mental alertness, an extremely useful property for those on a low-calorie diet.
Cinnamon extract 250 mg : cinnamon contributes to the maintenance of blood glucose levels, thus helping to control appetite and burn fat instead of accumulating it.
Powder of peppermint leaves 50 mg : this type of very well-known mint is commonly used to promote digestion by virtue of its soothing effects on the stomach, a property that makes it an ideal addition to this formula with high dosages.
Choline bitartrate 50 mg : choline is part of the vitamin B complex and is an essential nutrient found in foods such as egg yolk and spinach. Choline is a precursor to phospholipids, which contribute to the metabolism of fat in the body.
BioPerine® 5 mg : BioPerine® is a natural thermal nutrient that promotes bioavailability and is extracted from the fruit of Piper Nigrum L. (black pepper). It has been included in the CUTTING EDGE ™ supplement to increase the absorption rate of all the other ingredients.
Chromium picolinate 1 mg (2500% RDA) : included in its form with greater bioavailability, this mineral contributes to improving the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fat.
Selenomethionine 55 mcg (100% RDA) : extremely rapid absorption selenium linked to the amino acid methionine. With its antioxidant properties it helps neutralize free radicals and fat.
In addition to the Cutting Edge , which is a fairly complete supplement from the point of view of the active ingredients in which you can find most of them on sale also individually also on the Bulk Powders website, there are also other supplements that help to contribute to the loss of fat excess body, let’s see what they are:
L-Carnitine : L-Carnitine is an amino acid derivative that is synthesized by the human body both in the liver and in the kidney, the function of this supplement is to transport long chain fatty acids to be able to convert them into energy thanks to the Beta process -Oxidation. In the sports field, L-Carnitine is taken mainly before a training session which can be e.g. Aerobics. The recommended doses are from 500 to 2000 mg per day, possibly divided into several assumptions.
CLA(Conjugated Linoleic Acid): Linoleic Acid is a polyunsaturated fatty acid also defined as essential fatty acid because the human body does not have the enzymes necessary to synthesize it, for which it must be integrated in the form of food mainly and contained in the (meat animal, milk and dairy products) or supplements. In the Sports Area, the CLA has a potential role on how its integration can favor the distribution and improvement of body composition, significantly decreasing the levels of fat mass favoring lean body mass. The recommended doses in which it has been shown to have greater results are around 3.4 grams, but in general the maximum intake of 0.1gr / kg per day should not be exceeded, preferring its intake during meals to improve it L’
TTA (Tetradecylthioacetic acid): Tetradecylthioacetic acid is a synthetic fatty acid used as a supplement in slimming contexts since it is able to act as a regulator of lipid homeostasis. TTA would act by increasing the oxidation of fatty acids favoring a loss of fat mass without degrading the lean mass. The recommended doses are 500 mg taken during meals 2-3 times a day.
Complete Thermogenic : The thermogenic is a supplement capable of raising body temperature thus accelerating the metabolism, this means that the body uses lipids more for energy purposes. Bulk Powders has created a thermogenic with numerous properties with 9 active ingredients at high dosages with a scientifically proven composition to promote the reduction of fat mass, among which we find: Citrus aurantium (450 mg), 95% green tea extract (300 mg), caffeine (300 mg), tyrosine (200 mg), raspberry ketones (150 mg), theanine (150 mg), cayenne pepper (150 mg), BioPerine® (5 mg) and chromium picolinate (1 mg). Even the ingredients contained in this product can be found most of them sold individually.
We have seen some supplements that would contribute to the loss of fatty tissue, and very importantly before using any supplement to hear the advice of your doctor. All supplements do not replace a healthy and correct diet followed by healthy daily physical movement, therefore they must be taken as such in a context of sports integration, and it is important to always respect the dosage recommended by the manufacturer or by your doctor.
