I’ve tried everything, the muffin top just won’t go away!
How many times have you said that to yourself or to a friend? Having tried working out, Zumba classes or even Yoga, no matter what you try, you still feel as if there’s something missing.
Am I right? Are you nodding your head?
It’s time to let go of the struggle by adding these supplements into your diet & give yourself a little boost.
10 Best Sassy Supplements For Weight Loss -
These are natural supplements you can add to your regular routine while keeping it simple.
+ Matcha Green Tea —
Matcha is a more potent & concentrated form of green tea. It works as a fat blocker & boosts metabolism that stops the growth of fat cells.
Consuming matcha green tea increases thermogenesis, that is, the body's rate of burning calories, from 8-10% to 35-43% of daily energy expenditure.
Matcha has the ability to boost your immunity, control your stress and assist with weight loss all from one simple drink.
+ Apple Cider Vinegar —
ACV is one of the most popular "go-to" supplements for weight loss. It not only burns fat but also helps your body -
Regulate blood sugar
Decrease insulin level
Reduce Fat Storage
+ Ginger Root Extract —
Ginger helps increase fat breakdown in your body by blocking fat absorption. While ginger helps reduce inflammation & control free radicals in the body, it works best when combined with other sources like - Lemon, Apple Cider Vinegar & Green tea.
Each of these sources has properties that suppress appetite in one form or another thereby keeping you fuller longer & helping boost weight loss efforts.
+ Probiotics —
We often overlook the main aspect when it comes to weight loss, i.e. digestive health. Your digestion plays a critical role in losing weight.
Probiotics are living micro-organisms that help you achieve better digestive health. The better your body is able to digest, absorb & eliminate waste, the less likely you are going to experience bloating & other gut issues thereby supporting you with weight loss.
My favorite probiotics come in pixie stick form and are delicious! You can check them out here (and also grab $10 off your first order!)
+ Cinnamon —
Cinnamon helps your body reduce the bad effects of eating high-fat foods thereby helping in overall weight loss plan. Even though cinnamon alone can not help you with long term weight loss, adding it to your diet along with other supplements from the list can certainly help with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties providing additional help.
+ Protein Powder —
Protein is very essential for weight loss & a better-looking body. It helps you reduce hunger & appetite, boost metabolism.
While replacing the carbs & fat in your diet with protein, you reduce the hunger hormones & boost satiety hormones making you feel fuller & eating less.
PS — You don't need to have protein shakes if you don't like them, you can add them in your smoothies, pancakes or oatmeal to give you a boost.
I love a lightly flavored protein and this is my favorite in chocolate. Even people who don't like chocolate love this!
+ Glutamine —
L-Glutamine, often referred to only as glutamine is a form of amino acid that helps to promote weight loss, fat burning & muscle building. If you are interested in knowing more, you can click here to read the benefits of Glutamine.
+ Fish Oil or Omega 3 Fats —
Fish oil & Omega 3 help with weight loss in several ways including reducing hunger & appetite. You can either consume fish oil through dietary supplements or increase the intake of foods that contain Omega 3 like - nuts, eggs & salmon.
+ Vitamin D —
Even though Vitamin D is associated with improving immunity & building strong bones, there's also been evidence that it helps with weight loss.
Studies have shown that Vitamin D reduces the storage of fat cells & fat accumulation in the body while also preventing any formation of new fat cells thereby triggering weight loss.
+ Vitamin B12 —
Vitamin B12 helps with weight loss in direct & in-direct ways. While the more direct way is by influencing the body's metabolism, it's also believed to have helped by addressing anxiety & stress.
Chronic stress often leads to over-eating, low energy & lack of physical activities leading to weight gain. Vitamin B12 regulates the proper function of the nervous system thereby providing a person with the motivation to engage in physical activities & eventually weight loss.
