Top Fat Burner and Weight Loss Supplements Reviewed
| Written by Jeff Behar, MS, MBA |
There are many types of fat loss and weight loss supplements out there. The key to maximizing fat loss is using the right supplements at the right time, with of course hard training and a proper diet. The following are a few of the more popular supplements used for fat loss and appetite control on the market right now:
Tyrosine and Caffeine. The amino acid tyrosine, when consumed on an empty stomach, can increase levels of noradrenalin (norepinephrine) in the body to act as a mild appetite suppressant. Caffeine can enhance the effect because it compounds the noradrenalin-boosting proclivity of tyrosine and also helps free free fatty acids from fat cells. Both free fatty acids and glycerol--the byproduct of fat breakdown--help short-circuit the appetite control center located in the brain. Consider taking 2 g of tyrosine and a cup of coffee in the morning 45 minutes before eating and repeat the process in the early afternoon to maximize the fat burning and appetite suppressant effect.
5-HTP (or 5-Hydroxytryptophan): A supplement that help balance neurotransmitters responsible for regulation of mood and appetite, such as serotonin, norepinephrine and/or dopamine. Low levels of the brain chemical serotonin is responsible for depression and increase in appetite. Serotonin levels drop during a dieting phase, and this may lead to increased cravings for carbohydrates. 5-HTP is a natural supplement that is converted in the brain into a chemical called serotonin and thereby helps control the appetite. 5-HTP should not be used by individuals who are currently taking SSRI or MAOI antidepressants. Try 50-100 milligrams (mg) daily, in split doses, shortly before your largest meals.
ZMA (a formulated zinc product). People who have zinc deficiency tend to have less leptin, and leptin is associated with appetite control. By bumping up zinc, you increase your leptin levels, giving you better command over your eating. ZMA is known to help improve training recovery.
Histidine. Histidine helps suppress appetite by influencing the hormone leptin, which helps control hunger. Consider taking 500 mg of histidine three times a day to help control appetite.
Thermogenics supplements are supplements that work to increase metabolism, causing the body to burn more calories while boosting energy. Many thermogenics also help suppress appetite. The two main categories of thermogenic supplements on the market are stimulants and thyroid regulators.
Ephedera (or Mahaung): Ephedra increases metabolic rate and caloric expenditure by targeting tissues such as fat stores as sources of energy. It can have an effect on heart rate and blood pressure and can cause "jitteriness".
Synephrine (or Citrus aurantium, bitter orange): Physiological effect is similar to the banne...
