A Sneak Peek into the World of Fat Burners

Updated on November 12, 2020

Trying to burn fat for maintaining a lean but healthy body or losing weight is one of the most common goals among health and fitness enthusiasts that are creating a culture of good health. Both men and women of all ages have understood the importance of maintaining good health and, besides exercising and dieting, are picky about what they eat to melt fat faster and with assured results. This has increased the attraction of several food ingredients rich in caffeine and antioxidants responsible for fast fat burning. However, depending on food alone limits the progress because of the limited availability of the ingredients that help in fat burning and weight loss. It has resulted in people turning to some fat burner supplements for men and women and can help achieve their health goals faster and in a more assured way.  

What are fat burners?

Fat burners are supplements packed with antioxidants, caffeine, and other ingredients that can burn fat faster rather than depending on the body’s natural metabolism to burn fat. The fat burners enhance the metabolism and rapidly remove excess and unwanted fat while the supplements become a part of your daily diet. Fat burners differ from other supplements like cleanses and detox that focus on losing weight faster by restricting their food intake. Fat burners work alongside your diet but help to achieve the goal of weight loss by burning fat.

The basic about fat burners

Numerous fat burners are available in the market, each having a composition of its own and some common ingredients well known for its fat burning abilities. Whether it is powder or pill, the brand and the type of fat burner determine the kind of ingredients. However, every fat burner claims to be highly effective, which can be confusing when you are trying to find the best one for you. Since fat burners are unregulated products, you must be cautious about the safety of the product or brand you select. 

Regardless of the ingredients used, fat burners have a design that stimulates hormonal reactions in the body that accelerates the process of breaking down fat. At the same time, the supplement provides the fuel for it. Caffeine is one of the most common ingredients in fat burners that increase epinephrine, a hormone that aggressively breaks down fatty acids in the blood, which acts like fuel when released in the bloodstream.

The ingredients in fat burners

Besides caffeine, fat burners use L-Carnitine Tartrate, Garcinia Cambogia extract, green tea extract, and green coffee bean extract, which aid in fat burning but different ways.

  • L-Carnitine Tartrate is an amino acid that helps in producing energy by transferring fatty acids into cells.
  • Green coffee bean extract can inhibit fat accumulation due to the presence of Chlorogenic acid.
  • Garcinia Cambogia extract is a substance found in tamarind, which, despite helping in burning fat, invites some unwanted side effects.
  • Green tea extract is the most potent fat burning ingredient rich in antioxidants and boosts metabolism to facilitate fat burning.

Besides making you more energetic, some fat burning supplements can even suppress your appetite.
