17 Jun The Low-Down On 6 Natural Weight-Loss Supplements
Sometimes referred to as “the holy grail of weight loss”, Garcinia Cambogia is a 100% natural fat-fighter. It boosts your metabolism, curbs your appetite and blocks fat absorption, helping you get lean in a healthy, sustainable way.
Garcinia Cambogia is abundant in hydroxcitric acid (HCA) which is an appetite suppressant. There is a time lag between our brains and stomachs realising that we are full, and hydroxcitric acid diminishes this delay, preventing us from over-eating. Ayurvedic medicine is a very big fan of Garcinia Cambogia, because it helps to promote digestion, eliminates stomach infections, cleanses the kidneys, helps with high blood pressure and regulates cholesterol. It is abundant in antioxidants, hence it has many cleansing and rejuvenating benefits. Garcinia Cambogia also strengthens the immune system, boosts the metabolism and cleanses the colon. HCA reduces the amount of carbohydrates your body converts to fat, by inhibiting certain enzyme processes and is thus particularly useful in helping to lose stomach fat. It aids the body to sustain high levels of activity for longer periods. It also diminishes exhaustion and promotes relaxation.
We have several sources of Garcinia Cambogia available:
GREEN COFFEE BEAN EXTRACT
Green coffee is fast becoming one of the best-loved natural weight loss supplements out there, offering a healthier, safer and more sustainable way to keep those extra pounds off. Green (raw, unroasted) coffee beans are rich in chlorogenic acid, which signals your body to burn fat quicker and more efficiently, and also slows down the process of turning sugar into glucose. It helps in slowing down the ageing process, improves blood circulation in the body and aids muscle tone. It further inhibits the release of the G6P enzyme which has been shown to significantly stabilise blood sugar levels; this makes green coffee a popular supplement even among diabetic patients.
Check out our 2 sources of green coffee bean extracts, both with svetol, which slow the body’s release of glucose, boost energy levels and improve metabolism to combat fat accumulation: Garden of Life fücoTHIN GREEN and Dr. Boxall’s Green Coffee Bean Extract.
Sports fanatics have been touting the benefits of whey protein for many years, but emerging findings demonstrate that whey influences several critical pathways related to weight management, such as supporting one’s feeling of fullness, slowing down the absorption of glucose to reduce hunger, and optimising muscle mass (which reduces fat in the body). Moreover, research suggests that whey may help reduce stress, moderate cortisol, and support healthy serotonin levels, thus imparting feelings of overall wellbeing. These findings add to whey’s already well-established benefits, which include boosting glutathione levels, facilitating immune function, and aiding in the fight against cancer.
What is really interesting to consider is that whey protein is more effective than red meat in reducing weight gain and increasing insulin sensitivity. This is because it’s a low-calorie, low-fat product, unlike meat. So if you were to use whey protein to replace meat in your diet completely, or even for a few meals a week, you’ll find that your fat and calorie intake is greatly reduced while still getting the protein that your body desperately needs.
Helianthus is native to North America and is a member of the sunflower family, sharing their ability to swivel around to follow the path of the sun. Helianthus slows down the rate at which sugars are broken down in the body. This means that your food will give you energy for a longer period of time, slowing down hunger pangs. Better metabolism of sugars also balances out spikes in blood sugar levels, reducing sugar cravings that occur when blood sugar levels drop.
Helianthus contains plant sugars that feed friendly bacteria in the gut, and these bacteria break down undigested food particles. As Helianthus also contains water soluble plant fibres, it helps to bulk up waste matters traveling through the colon, and thus improves bowel regularity.

GREEN TEA EXTRACT & TEAS
Studies show that regular consumption of green tea helps to stimulate your metabolism, and to dissolve excess triglycerides (a substance that gets turned into fat). Both these benefits help with healthy weight control. It also stimulates the activity of several antioxidant and detoxifying enzymes in the body.
DANDELION EXTRACTS & TEAS
Although dandelion will not help you reduce fat, it will help your body reduce excess water, which is often what heavier people struggle with. By increasing the volume and frequency of urination, dandelion is often used to shed water weight and also to reduce blood pressure. This is the most common use of dandelion in traditional medicine.
