5 VITAMINS FOR WEIGHT LOSS
There must be at least a million different ways to lose weight. At least that’s the impression you may have if you have taken the time to check out the seemingly endless diets and diet pills that have been touted through the years.
We all know that the sensible approach to weight loss is as simple as diet and exercise, but it’s human nature to want fast and easy as opposed to simple. Like almost everything else worth doing, losing weight takes time.
These 5 vitamins and supplements may help speed up your weight loss journey a bit, but you probably shouldn’t expect miracles. When you’re waiting for those pounds to melt away, however, you can use all the help you can get.
1. WHITE BEAN EXTRACT
This one is pretty new on the scene but since it has shown up on some popular television programs, public interest in it has certainly spiked. The benefits of white bean extract are purported to be that it increases metabolism, and also helps to block carbohydrate absorption. As a side benefit, it may also help keep blood sugar levels normal.
Zinc is a mineral that’s essential for good health, although many people are not getting enough of it in their diet. For those trying to lose weight, zinc may cause an uptick in metabolism through the release of thyroid hormones, which play a key role in regulating weight.
3. VITAMIN B12
Although everyone needs to get a sufficient amount of all of the B vitamins, B12 is the one that is most often associated with weight loss. B12 injections have been used by some dieters to boost energy levels which helps the weight melt away faster.
4. GREEN TEA EXTRACT
Green tea has certainly received a lot of attention in recent years due to findings that have demonstrated that it is beneficial to one’s health in a number of ways. Its use for weight loss is inspired by its ability to boost the metabolism and make weight loss easier and faster.
5. VITAMIN C
The benefits of vitamin C have been talked about for years, probably long before most people ever heard about vitamin E or D. Along with its ability to help boost the immune system, some dieters believe that it can also help facilitate weight loss. Some dieters take high levels of vitamin C, but there is no evidence that suggests mega doses will do more good than taking a “normal” amount.
