Fat Burning Supplements : Helping You Burn Fat... & Continue Burning Fat!

Plateaus… at some point we have, or are likely to hit them in our life time. Plateaus are an unfortunate side effect of being human, just as we begin to get somewhere, mortality brings us back down to earth either in the shape of an injury, fatigue, or hitting a threshold whereby our bodies hit a sticking point that is difficult to overcome.

'We are all limited, but we can move the boundaries of our limitations'

no limits

And that’s where fat burners come into play... New research published in April 2013 in the ISSN demonstrates the mechanism behind fat burning supplements, and how they boost fat burning as well as moving those boundaries further back! Their researchers explained how some of the key ingredients of fat loss supplements (particularly caffeine and capsaicin) increase energy expenditure by up to 13%. There is potential to increase energy expenditure further still when the above ingredients are combined with appetite suppressing agents such as bitter orange peel, metabolic boosters such as green tea extract, green coffee, and cayenne pepper as well as the fat metabolisers CLA and L-carnitine.

What makes fat burners particularly useful is there purported ability to counteract the decrease in metabolic rate that follows a bout of weight loss.

The body can sense weight loss and consequently conserves energy resulting in difficulty shifting the last stubborn layer of fat. So in order to stave this off, moving the boundaries of our limitations back, try opting for a FAT BURNER.

NOTE: Do consult your Doctor prior to commencing a fat burning supplement if you are on any existing medication or have an underlying medical condition. Always follow the directions on the product.
