Supplements that make you lose weight

There are different types of supplements on the market related to weight loss. Obviously, the best and essential thing is that you discuss it with your doctor or nutritionist, and that he or she recommends one or the other. It should be noted that some interfere with taking some medications.

1) Garcinia cambogia extract

Garcinia cambogia extract is a plant that contains hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which, along with a healthy diet and exercise, can help maintain a healthy weight.

The plant is native to Asia, Australia, southern Africa, and Polynesia. Its fruits have been consumed by local populations for centuries. Plus, it helps you lose weight, as found in a 2011 review that looked at 12 studies and found that it caused a weight loss of approximately 0.5 pounds over several weeks.

2)   Caffeine

Caffeine is the most widely consumed psychoactive substance in the world. It is found naturally in coffee, green tea, and dark chocolate, and is added to many processed foods and beverages.


Caffeine is a metabolic booster and is often added to commercial weight loss supplements.

Numerous studies have shown that caffeine can speed up metabolism by 3-11% and increase fat burning by up to 29%.

As for its side effects, it should be noted that some people produce anxiety, insomnia, nervousness, irritability, nausea, diarrhea and other symptoms.

3) Raspberry ketones

Raspberry Ketone is a substance found in raspberries and is responsible for their distinctive smell. It is sold as a weight loss supplement.

Raspberry ketones increase the breakdown of fat and also the level of a hormone called adiponectin, which is linked to weight loss. There are no overt side effects beyond the fact that your breath may smell like raspberries.

4) Green coffee bean extract

Green coffee beans are just normal coffee beans that have not been roasted. They contain two substances that are believed to help with weight loss: caffeine and chlorogenic acid. It is sold in supplements.

Several human studies have shown that green coffee bean extract can help people lose weight. In addition, its consumption can help reduce blood sugar level and blood pressure. It is also rich in antioxidants.

Regarding side effects, they are the same as those of caffeine, previously mentioned.

5) Glucomannan or Konjac

Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fiber extracted from the root of the konjac plant that can become a good ally when it comes to losing weight.

Glucomannan has an extraordinary ability to absorb water (due to its nutritional structure) and it is this mechanism that gives it the ability to aid in significant weight loss. Once consumed with water or in the form of a drink, glucomannan expands in the stomach and therefore promotes the feeling of fullness, which reduces the feeling of hunger and the intake of sugars and carbohydrates.

As for its side effects, it can cause bloating, flatulence, and loose stools, and it can interfere with some oral medications if taken at the same time.

6) Guarana

Guarana is a native Amazon shrub, known for its fruit seeds, exceptionally rich in caffeine. They give it a strong slimming and anti-fatigue power.

In addition, it promotes the feeling of satiety in the body, which benefits weight loss and is very energizing.

7) Green tea extract

Green tea extract is a popular ingredient in many weight loss supplements, and there are some that only carry this. Many studies have shown that it helps burn fat, especially that of the belly area, hence its success.

Digestion begins in your mouth, where saliva starts to break down food when you chew. When you swallow, your chewed food moves to your esophagus, a tube that connects your throat to your stomach. Muscles in the esophagus push the food down to a valve at the bottom of your esophagus, which opens to let food into the stomach.
