Thread: Best Fat Burning Supplement

    Default Best Fat Burning Supplement

    Fat burner supplements are dietary pills that claim to jumpstart natural fat-burning processes in the body. They typically include natural fat burners such as caffeine, green tea and yohimbine, an ingredient we’ll dive into a bit later.

    Dr. Houman noted that the name “fat burner” is actually not the most accurate way to describe these supplements, or how they work.

    Dr. Houman noted that while the exact ingredients and marketing of fat burners varies from brand to brand, there are two distinct ways you can classify what fat burners do. Some increase your energy levels, some increase testosterone, and some do a combination of both.

    “What fat burners do is they increase your energy levels. They have some kind of stimulant whether it’s caffeine, citrulline which is the amino acid that helps increase blood flow to your muscles, or various vitamins like B vitamins which can increase your energy levels. Essentially, this allows you to exercise harder whether it’s weightlifting, cardio — it allows you to exercise more therefore the idea is you’re burning more fat and burning more calories.”

    He went on to explain “when you boost your testosterone levels you lean out easier, your lean muscle mass increases and your body fat composition, body fat percentage decreases.”

    Fat burners and their effectiveness are controversial, but many men believe they can be an effective weight-loss tool. Before venturing into any new health routine, supplements included, it’s always a good idea to do your research and find the brand with the ingredient list that works best for you. Again, always consult your physician before adding a new supplement to your diet.

    Dr. Houman noted that while fat burners can help you lose weight alongside other, healthy activities, they aren’t going to burn up fat on their own.

    “Anyone who takes these should understand that by taking these it’s not going to burn fat by itself. Obviously you have to do the things that are helpful for fat burning. [Fat burners] could help support those types of things whether it’s eating a lean diet, exercising daily, exercising consistently, etc” said Dr. Houman.

    “These supplements will help support those types of exercises and could complement, further perpetuate and allow for more fat loss when you do the things that are naturally helpful for weight loss.”

    Though fat burner supplements are commonly used for weight loss, there's not a lot of evidence that they're effective. Some studies have found that the supplements can actually increase body weight, while others have not been able to show any real benefits. There is no clear answer when it comes to whether these supplements are really beneficial or not. Find more information
