The ISSN, (2013) found that total body weight, and particularly fat mass decreased when a multi- ingredient supplement containing primarily raspberry ketone, caffeine, capsaicin, garlic, ginger and citrus aurantium was consumed alongside a weight loss regimen. The consistent ingestion of such a supplement saw improved body composition, waist and hip girth, and less total fat mass.
The control group (those people who did not take the supplement) also managed to lose weight through nothing more than calorie restriction and exercise, however the rate and total weight loss was not as much as the experimental group (those that were taking the supplement). This reinforced the theory that such ingredients, when combined in optimal ratios, can boost norepinephrine- lipolysis, increased adiponectin expression and other fat burning processes.
Should you choose to take a ‘fat metaboliser’ or ‘fat burner’, your options include some of the following:
NOTE: Be sure to consult a Doctor before commencing fat burning supplements if you have an underlying medical condition, are on a regular course of medication or you have any intolerance to stimulants such as caffeine. DO NOT AT ANY TIME USE BANNED SUBSTANCES - THESE POSE SERIOUS RISKS TO YOUR HEALTH.
