Fat Burners for Women
Whether you are trying to shed some extra pounds or get lean to expose your toned physique for a holiday or even a fitness event, you have probably, at some point, considered or used fat burners. No wonder, at the end of the day we all want to look and feel our best and women have it in their genes to hold on to that little bit of extra fat tissue. That’s why we turn to fat burning supplements. Have you ever encountered or used them? How did they make you feel? Did you have any concerns? There are even special fat burners for women on the market. But you may feel hesitant to use those or have questions. The labels may seem tricky to decipher so let us help!
Most females expect spot fat loss or extremely quick miracle pill. The first is impossible unless you use invasive methods such as lipo or injections. The latter, if it exist, is probably dangerous. Of course, fat burners do show results, especially when paired with a healthy diet and exercise. Research shows that some if not all ingredients of such supplements are effective in speeding up the metabolism and apetite control.
Ingredients in Fat Burners for Women
Since there are specific fat burners for women on the market, which address women’s needs and contain ingredients safe for the female body, it’s worth to look at some of those ingredients to understand how they work. We will also understand why we can rely on fat burners for women.
- Green Tea Extract – for increased metabolic rate
The research is actually quite clear on this one: green tea is good for you. That’s good news since it’s found in many fat burners for women! It protects you from aging and cell oxidation, can prevent cancer and helps you burn fat more efficiently. Avoid consuming too much if you have insomnia or hypertension (high blood pressure).
- Green Coffee Bean Extract to burn fat
Green coffee beans are healthy and safe. They are also a good source of antioxidants and help our metabolism without the stimulant effect.
- Garcinia – to inhibit fat producing enzymes
The extract of garcinia cambogia (tamarind) is used for decreasing appetite, the evidence of its effectiveness is weak, though.
- Razberi-K – for fat cell breakdown
It contains ketones – bodies responsible for processing fat in our food and bodies into energy. Ketones are produced in the body naturally when we are depleted of glycogen (i.e. low carb diets). It’s a good ingredient or addition to a fat burner for women because it really helps dig into those fat stores and it comes from nature (raspberries).
- Caffeine – for increased metabolism
It is a stimulant which increases your heart rate and stimulates your metabolism, but you will develop tolerance after a while. The appetite suppressing effect, however will still help your weight loss. Be careful with large doses of caffeine or any other stimulants, especially when combined with health conditions and/or medical drugs.
Yohimbe is the name of an African tree. It is used for enhancing sexual performance and also for athletic performance and weight loss because its active ingredient – yohimbine increases blood flow and circulation.
To Use or not to Use?
Commercial supplements tend to be safe if bought from a trusted source, including fat burners for women, but remember read the labels, check if it’s safe with any medical condition you may have and, if in doubt, consult your physician. Same goes for side effects – if you experience any worrying ones, stop taking them and go see your doc.
Combine your pills with a healthy diet, plenty of sleep and regular exercise and you will most definitely see results soon enough. Don’t get hung up on fads, don’t expect miracles but work hard and consistently to shift to an overall healthy lifestyle and fat burners will help you get there and look fabulous for the summer or competition time. They are also good mood enhancers and range from mildly to heavily stimulating – so you will have plenty of energy to smash all your daily tasks, workouts and then some.
