It seems like new fad diets, weight loss supplements, and diet plans crop up daily these days. Every company claims to have the best supplements for weight loss, but the question still remains; do weight loss supplements work? And if so, what supplements help with weight loss?
In this write-up, we’ll attempt to navigate the ever-growing supplement industry while discussing some pros and cons of taking supplements for weight loss, and how to lose weight naturally using all-natural weight loss supplements.
Are Weight Loss Supplements Safe?
According to the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Government Accountability Office compiled a report on multiple weight loss supplements. Their conclusion is that some weight loss supplements can be dangerous when abused or overused. Instead, the GAC recommends that if taking weight loss supplements, one should be active in their lifestyle, and implement other changes such as a healthier diet and plenty of exercise in addition to the supplements acting in a supporting role to facilitate weight loss. The best weight loss supplements are those that work with your current diet and exercise plan to facilitate your body’s efforts for healthy weight loss.
Always take your supplements according to the directions on the label. For best results, take your daily supplement with food if it’s a fat-soluble mixture. Fat-soluble vitamins should be taken with a meal containing some kind of fat to aid absorption. You may need to take others on an empty stomach.
If taking medications for unrelated ailments, diseases, or other afflictions, check with your primary care physician before experimenting with weight loss supplements. However, an otherwise healthy individual looking to shed weight should be able to use supplements during their weight loss journey. Read on to determine what supplements are the best for weight loss. Spoiler: There are several types that you can use at the same time!
What are the Best Weight Loss Supplements?
Natural weight loss supplements are those that use elements of natural or organic weight loss stimulators found in fruits (ketones), proteins found in meats (like L-carnitines), and natural energy boosters like caffeine via green tea extract or glucomannan found in the roots of plants. These supplements are generally mild and safe for use without the worry of common allergies, or chemicals being added to them that would have adverse effects on your body. Of course, as with all things, moderation is key. So stick to the instructions on the label! But what are the best weight loss supplements for both men and women?
A man’s body will have an easier time generating muscle by repairing tissue during exercise. Therefore, a key difference between supplements for men and women is often testosterone, which aids in this process. However, Doctor Select Supplements are safe for both men and women and provide essential vitamins that help suppress bloating by aiding digestion, with thermogenic effects that aid in calorie burning.
How Do Weight Loss Supplements Work?
With so many formulas in existence on the market today that aid in effective weight loss, it can be difficult to determine what supplements are good for weight loss and your personal situation. The best weight loss supplements are those that promote your body’s natural processes and abilities to burn fat. The best supplement plan is one where several supplements are used to complement each other, and better diet habits.
Naturally controlling appetite, supporting healthy metabolism, increasing energy and immune function, and almost most importantly - boosting mood, are some of the hallmarks of effective supplements. Obviously, this is a lot to handle in a single supplement, so Doctor Select breaks it down into four options to be taken daily.
In summary, weight loss supplements can be dangerous when severely and suddenly altering the amount of fuel you provide your body, or by taking supplements without following the instructions. Weight loss supplements are not intended to be meal replacements, and shouldn’t be taken if current health conditions make them unsafe.
However, the very definition of “supplement” is “something that completes or enhances something else when added to it.” Regular exercise and a healthy, organized diet is that something that supplements add to. We encourage you to explore supplement options and if you should choose Doctor Select to aid in your personal development, we sincerely hope you reach out with any questions!
