7 supplements for fast fat loss

  1. 1. 7 Supplements for fast fat lossImage by 2day929Although there are a ton of supplements out there which can aid with fat loss, thereis no substitute for eating right and exercising smart. Once you have taken the stepof overhauling your diet and incorporating exercise in your daily routine, you canleverage the use of supplements to enhance and speed up your fat loss goals.Top 7 supplements for fast fat lossFollowing are top 7 supplements for fast fat loss, which I added to my arsenal to lose30 lbs and achieve my goal weight.1.Krill Oil2.CLA3.Whey Protein Isolate4.BCAA powder5.Leucine Powder6.L-Carnitine7.B complex
  2. 2. 1. Krill OilBoth fish oil and Krill oil contain Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. But the Omega 3in Krill Oil are bound to phospholipids. Krill oil contains specialized fat moleculescalled phospholipids which help emulsify fatty acids and enhance their absorptionand retention. Our cell membranes are also made of phospholipids. So Krill Oil takesto our cell membranes quickly and easily as the phospholipid forms of EPA and DHAfound in krill oil are identical to the phospholipids in our own cell membranes. HenceKrill Oil is 48 times better absorbed than fish oil.Krill Oil also contains a naturally-occurring antioxidant called astaxanthin, along withsmall amounts of vitamin E and A that keeps it from oxidizing and becoming rancidin the gut.Research conducted in a group of overweight rats found that krill oil provoked a 42%decrease in fat (triglyceride) build-up in the hearts of the test rats. Fish oil only leadto a marginal decline in cardio-lipids of 2%. When the authors of the study examinedthe livers of these animals, they discovered a 60% reduction in fat in their livers, asopposed to 38% in the livers of rats fed fish oil.2. CLAWhat is CLA? CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acidthat has been shown in research and clinical studies to reduce body fat and increasemuscle mass. This is an essential fatty acid only obtained through our diet. CLA wasprimarily found in beef and dairy products. CLA work as a body fat reducer is tomake sure that you take it every day and that you give it a minimum of 12 weeks, atthe very least, for satisfactory results to show.3. Whey Protein IsolateStudies have shown that a whey protein supplement increases fat loss and reducesmuscle loss on a reduced-calorie diet compared to a control supplement with equalcalories.To increase the metabolic rate, lean proteins should be consumed at the amount of1-1.5 grams per pound of lean bodyweight. It is easier to get the protein I need inthe form of whey isolate. Whey protein isolate is a great source of essential aminoacids which are building blocks for healthy muscles, skin, nails and other bodytissuesProtein reduces hunger by lowering insulin levels, making it easier for the body toburn fat. Look for a protein powder which is low in fat, low is carbohydrate andprovides 25+ grams of protein per serving.
  3. 3. 4. BCAA powderThe Three amino acids - valine, isoleucine and leucine - are collectively known as thebranched-chain amino acids, so named because of their molecular structure, whichfeatures branched chains of carbon extending from their primary carbon structure.The BCAAs are part of the 8 essential amino acids - meaning that we must consumethem from food because the body cannot manufacture them.BCAAs are unique because theyre not metabolized in the liver but in muscle instead.Thats why theyre called muscle aminos. They account for approximately 33% of theAmino Acids found in muscle protein.BCAAs may help diminish muscle damage during exercise and block what is calledDelayed-Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) following intense training.[2]Free-form BCAAs are great because theyre almost instantaneously digested and sentinto your bloodstream. Taking a BCAA supplement before, during, and after you trainis important because BCAAs can help prevent muscle breakdown.BCAAs can help you maintain energy and minimize protein breakdown.Source:1.1. “Exercise promotesBCAA catabolism: effects of BCAA supplementation on skeletal muscleduring exercise”2.2. “Branched-chainamino acid supplementation before squat exercise and delayed-onsetmuscle soreness”5. LeucineThe most abundant of all 3 BCAAs. Research has shown that Leucine is the mosteffective BCAA in in fighting fat and maintaining muscle. Supplementing with Leucinepowder may give you an extra edge in your fight against fat.6. L-Carnitine
  4. 4. is a non essential amino acid made from lysine and methionine. L- carnitine isresponsible for transferring the fatty acids across the cell membranes to themitochondria where they are burnt(oxidized) as fuel. If carnitine levels are notadequate, the mitochondria cannot absorb and metabolize fatty acids. Thus the levelof fat in blood stream may be high, which may interfere with our ability to burn fat.Take L carnitine 30 minutes before starting your workout.7. B-complexis a grouping of all B vitamins. B vitamins are water soluble just like vitamin C. Othervitamins A , D ,E and K are fat soluble. Water soluble vitamins get dissolved in waterand your body naturally depletes them faster than other nutrients. (Through urineand perspiration. B- Complex boost metabolism which helps the body shed fat. Itspecifically helps with weight loss because it breaks down fats, proteins andcarbohydrates by restoring healthy digestion. Healthy digestion is crucial for weightloss. Take B-100 vitamin every day for general well-being.Supplments can get very expensive so chose them wisely. My favourite supplementswhich I take on a regular basis are Krill Oil and B-complex. Whey protein powder isgreat for fast convenient protein. Always try to cycle your supplements and takebreaks from them to ensure that the body is not getting used to
