3 Fat Loss Supplements

Three effective fat loss supplements

With the amount of supplements there is to lose fat, it is difficult to choose those that really bring some benefit.

We've chosen three supplements with a good price/benefit ratio to help you achieve your goals, whether by increasing energy, reducing appetite or increasing metabolism.

The famous Fat-Burners were not included, as in addition to the fact that the formulas are constantly changing, many of the ingredients used do not have studies to prove their effectiveness.

We will then present the chosen three.

Tyrosine

tyrosine
Tyrosine / Tyrosine is a non-essential amino acid, essential for the production of catecholamines dopamine and norepinephrine.

It is also a precursor of thyroid hormones, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3).

Being a precursor amino acid of both dopamine and norepinephrine, one of the main effects for those looking to lose fat is the increase in energy levels, usually lower in diets hypocaloric, and concentration levels.

It proved to be effective both physically and mentally in situations of stress and in reducing fatigue. (1)

It is also possible to have a slight appetite suppression with this supplement, since the increase in catecholamines can have this effect.

In addition, Tyrosine, being a precursor of thyroid hormones, can optimize the metabolism of nutrients in case of deficiency, leading to a greater consumption of calories by the body.

Tyrosine works very well in conjunction with caffeine, increasing its effectiveness.

Recommended dose: Between 500mg to 1.5g before training, start with the smallest dose and increase if necessary.

5-HTP

5htp5-HTP stands for 5-hydroxytryptophan, or also known as oxytriptan.

It is an amino acid and is a precursor of serotonin, being effective in increasing the levels of this neurotransmitter.

Bearing in mind that the 5-HTP's mechanism of operation is simply based on the increase in serotonin, it is important to know the role of this neurotransmitter and what its functions are.

Serotonin is responsible for regulating various functions in the body, from sleep to appetite and going through well-being.

Low levels of serotonin are associated with depression, insomnia and the so-called 'cravings', that is, an above-average craving for sweets.

5-HTP works by increasing this neurotransmitter, being a useful tool in diets for weight loss, since promotes satiety, and it becomes easier to control the food that is consumed (2) (3) (4).

In other words, it is easier to follow the diet without slipping because 5-HTP reduces your appetite.

In addition, diets hypocaloric they are associated with mood swings and sometimes difficulty falling asleep. This supplement, by promoting the increase in serotonin levels, manages to maintain a more stable mood, a feeling of relaxation that can help to fight insomnia and general well-being.

Recommended dose: Between 50mg to 100mg 30 minutes before the main meals, start with the lower dose and increase if necessary up to a maximum of 300mg per day.

Caffeine

caffeineCaffeine is an alkaloid in the xanthine group, and we all know it from difficult mornings or long nights to keep us awake, but it can also help us when our goal is to lose fat.

The three main benefits are:

Increased energy and concentration

Whether before training to increase performance or in the middle of the day when sleep strikes, caffeine removes drowsiness and promotes an active lifestyle, leading to burning more calories than those burned if we chose to take a nap.

In addition, by increasing energy and concentration levels, it leads to better training performances and consequently better results.

Increased metabolism

Caffeine has a thermogenic effect and promotes an increase in metabolism, leading to burning more calories both at rest and during exercise (5).

Appetite reduction

Although caffeine slightly reduces appetite, helping to follow a diet hypocaloric where hunger normally becomes one of the main enemies.

Together with Tyrosine this effect becomes much more evident, and leads to greater control not only of the quantity, but also of the quality of the food eaten.

Recommended dose: If you have never drank coffee in your life, or are not used to it, start with 50mg to 100mg before training, but if you are already used to 200mg coffee it is usually the ideal dose.

Meetings available on here, or at the nearest cafe.

Conclusion

Two amino acids and the most well-known, studied and used stimulant in the world.

These were our three choices, no dark ingredients, no magic tricks, just little energy aids, appetite control and increased fat burning.

Needless to say, don't expect miracles, and without a good diet and training, you might as well leave supplements aside, as they won't have much of an impact.

On the other hand, if you use them in conjunction with a good fat burning plan, they will be good allies to achieve your goals.

  1. Good afternoon, I am taking a supplement that is CARNIVOR, and the results have been fantastic, however I am not managing to lose the fat mass that I would like with my diet and training plan and I would like to know your advice for the using a supplement to achieve that goal!

    1. Hi Mario, the supplement has little impact on fat loss, if you are looking to lose fat the most important thing is the diet.

  2. Hi, I bought thermogenics (thermopure) from My Protein and I would like to know your opinion regarding the benefits of this product please. I train 4 to 5 days a week (bodybuilding and group classes), I eat a balanced diet and in terms of supplementation I take an isolated whey shake after training and before training I take these thermopures (2 to 3 capsules).

    1. Hi Rita, it's a reasonable thermogenic, which will, above all, give you an extra boost in your workouts and help you burn more calories.
