Weight Loss

Obesity is an excess of body fat. Obesity can have a profound negative effect on health and can lead to a host of other chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disease, and premature death. There are sensible solutions to weight loss that involve dietary modification, exercise and fat burning support through supplementation.

 

Supplement Considerations

Fat Metabolizing Supplements

A fat metabolizing supplement should contain three proven metabolic conditioning agents that help the body burn fat. This product is stimulant-free and very safe. The chromium improves glucose regulation, reducing the conversion of carbohydrates to fat. Hydroxy-citric acid blocks enzymes that convert carbohydrates into fat. The decaffeinated green tea catechins have been shown to increase fat-burning by the body’s brown fat. Clinical studies indicate that catechin supplementation, on its own, can result in a 20 pound per year weight loss, even if no dietary or exercise modifications are implemented.

 

Adrenal Support Nutrients

An adrenal support nutrient should contain natural adaptogens, which suppress the over secretion of cortisol from the adrenal glands when a person is under stress. Individuals who are under stress often show high cortisol levels or an abnormal cortisol secretion pattern, which can impair the release of thyroid hormone and/or block the effects of thyroid hormone at the cellular level. This can contribute to an inability to lose weight. Adrenal Support Formula helps to suppress the over secretion of cortisol, and thus, enables the thyroid gland and thyroid hormone to function in a more normalized manner.

 

High Potency Multiple Vitamin and Mineral

A high potency multiple vitamin and mineral should contain important levels of nutrients to keep the body healthy and suppress inflammation, which is strongly associated with obesity.

 

Essential Fatty Acids

An essential fatty acid should contain important levels of essential fatty acids to keep the body healthy and suppress inflammation, which is strongly associated with obesity.

Thyroid Support Nutrients

A thyroid support nutrient should contain nutrients required to synthesize thyroid hormone within the thyroid gland, as well as factors that stimulate increased release of thyroid hormone into the bloodstream. Other ingredients in this product help to convert T4 into the more active T3 thyroid hormone. This product should be used when a person has trouble losing weight and their TSH blood levels are between 2 – 5, which is suggestive of thyroid dysfunction. A TSH level above 5 requires thyroid hormone replacement, in addition to the use of Thyro Support Formula – which can enhance the efficacy of thyroid hormone replacement therapy.
