The start of each New Year brings with it a renewed sense of optimism and endless new possibilities. For those trying to lose weight and lead a healthy life, the New Year is a great opportunity to revitalise your weight loss efforts and start new weight loss and healthier lifestyle plans.
Several factors such as a balanced diet, regular exercise and supplements can assist you in achieving your weight loss goals if maintained. Below are some supplements that may assist you during your weight loss journey.
Green Tea Extract
Many research studies have shown that green tea extract can have a positive effect on our body weight but also on our general health. One of the four main weight loss functions green tea plays is that it helps increase our metabolism. By increasing your metabolism, the rate at which your body burns calories also increases, helping with weight loss. Green tea may also prevent fat absorption and may also act as a glucose regulator as it helps to slow your blood sugar from rising after a meal. This prevents a high insulin spike which leads to fat storage. Taking a natural supplement containing green tea extract may assist you in managing your weight.
Chromium is a trace mineral that your body needs to regulate your blood-sugar levels. Chromium may promote weight loss by reducing your body fat and increasing your lean muscle mass. Chromium may also improve your resistance to insulin, the hormone in your body that controls blood sugar levels. Proper insulin functioning promotes burning calories by raising body heat. When your body is deficient in chromium, your blood sugar levels become elevated and you begin craving sugary foods. Taking a supplement containing chromium may assist weight loss efforts by regulating your appetite and reducing cravings.
