Top 5 Natural Weight Loss Supplements

  Top 5 Natural Weight Loss Supplements 

With swimsuit season around the corner, now is the time to get back in shape and lose the extra weight gained over winter. The quickest way to lose weight is to eat a clean, exercise each weekday for at least 30 to 45 minutes and take natural weight loss supplements. 

By adding supplements to your daily nutritional regimen, you will see the scale go down sooner as your body becomes leaner faster. Below are 5 of the best natural weight loss supplements to help you get rid of the stubborn fat around your belly and hips. 

 Top 5 Natural Supplements to Shed Weight

These supplements have been proven through years of study to induce weight loss and improve health, wellness and vitality.


CLA has been the subject of a variety of research in the past several years, studies show that CLA increases metabolic rate, decreases abdominal fat, enhances muscle growth, increases fat loss, lowers cholesterol and triglycerides, and has a positive impact on thyroid health.


Adding calcium to your diet will increase weight loss. New research suggests you should eat 3 to 4 servings of low-fat, calcium-rich foods if you want to lose weight. The study shows that calcium can help adjust your body's fat-burning metabolism.

In a 2009 a study was published in the British Journal of Nutrition stating obese women who were put on a 15-week diet and took 1,200 milligrams of calcium a day lost six times more weight than women who followed the diet alone. 


Vitamin D is a most helpful for weight loss. V-D keep hunger and cravings in check, as well as to pump up levels of the mood-elevating chemical serotonin. V-D also optimizes your body's ability to absorb other important weight-loss nutrients such as  calcium and magnesium.

When your body lacks calcium it increases fatty acid synthesis, an enzyme that converts calories into fat. By fueling your body with the V-D nutrients, it needs to get out of a fat-storage state and into a fat-burning state. By taking a V-D supplement, you may potentially increase your body's ability to shed weight faster by up to 70 percent--how great would that be!


Chromium picolinate increases the body's ability to metabolize fats and carbohydrates in the body, which helps keep blood sugar level and helps the body to utilize glucose as energy rather than storing it as fat. Chromium picolinate improves the signaling action of insulin and lowers the amount of glucose that are left to circulate in your bloodstream--which aids in weight loss.


L-carnitine plays an important role in metabolizing carbohydrates and fats and the reduction of triglycerides in the bloodstream. It transfers fatty acids into energy rather than fat stores. L-carnitine and its derivative, acetyl-l-carnitine, are two important nutrients for fat loss. 

L-carnitine is highly beneficial for energy formation and an active metabolism. L-carnitine transports the fatty acids from the bloodstream into the cell for needed energy. By increasing l-carnitine in your diet, you will increase your body's ability to burn fat and it will help increase your energy as well.  Take an omega-3 supplement with l-carnitine to increase effectiveness.


Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) increases weight loss and is potentate antioxidant. It is a natural supplement which your body synthesis, it reduces inflammation in fat cells, which enables fat cells to release fat. ALA enhances our ability to metabolize food into energy which will keep fat stores at bay.

I've taken these supplements and have had great success in aiding my fitness goals. I'm a firm believer in taking supplements; I also take high quality a multi-mineral and an omega supplement daily for optimal health and to maintain my ideal body weight. 

By taking these supplements, you will feel better, have more energy and will shed weight faster than with dieting and exercising alone.
