How Fat Burning Thermogenic Supplements Work

Updated on April 22, 2015

Plenty of options await consumers interested in fat burning supplements. There are different formulations available in the market today, but they share common active ingredients such as chitosan, caffeine, ephedra, pyruvate, and HCA. As such, one of their main effects is to increase the temperature of the body and induce fat burning. These thermogenic ingredients also decrease a person’s appetite.

A boost in metabolism

Thermogenic substances are helpful to dieters that are serious about losing fat deposits and maintaining the ideal weight. This occurs because they discourage fat storage, and so the person is not prone to gaining weight. Thermogenic compounds increase the overall rate of body metabolism. More specifically, they also boost digestion of foods eaten, and the absorption of nutrients from food. Not all products that are labeled as fat burners work, but those that do are the ones that contain compounds with thermogenic properties.

One of the most sought after products today is the Ubervita W700 Thermogenic Hyper Metabolizer Capsules, which is especially formulated for elite athletes that are keen on attaining their ideal weight at the shortest possible time. The active ingredients used in the hyper-metabolizer pills are all

certified and scientifically proven thermogenic substances that are processed in GMP certified laboratories. Professional athletes stand by the efficacy of this product, which is made in the United States and is now available online to customers worldwide.

How fat burning products work

New companies are joining veteran suppliers of fat burning supplements because the demand for them remains high. The array of available products keep expanding, benefiting consumers who can now avail of high quality products for a more reasonable price. Because of the competition, manufacturers of food supplements with thermogenic and fat loss ingredients such as the popular ECA (ephedra-caffeine-aspirin) stack are financing additional research to develop products that offer better and faster results to the end-user.

Nevertheless, fat burners only work their magic when a person eats the right kind of food at the right time. Fat burners also work when the person engages in regular exercise. If a person eats a lot of junk food and sits in front of the television screen all day, then even the most potent products in the market won’t work. People who use of food supplements must engage in physical activity to maintain good muscle tone and reduce the storage of body fat. Some of the types of exercises that can help dieters achieve their fitness and wellness goals are strengthening activities and cardio-respiratory exercises that address the muscles and the cardiopulmonary system, respectively

Tolerance to fat burner pills

Some people may develop a tolerance to fat burner pills. This can be problematic because when this state is reached, the active ingredients no longer work effectively. The risk of developing tolerance may be higher for certain people than others. This is why it is important for individuals who have been diagnosed with problems related to metabolism, immunity, and chronic debilitating diseases to consult with a medical professional first before taking food supplements on a regular basis. Favoring products made from all-natural ingredients and taking the right dosage can lower the chances of a person developing tolerance to the food supplement.

Thermogenic compounds

The ma huang plant is the primary source of ephedra, which is a key ingredient in most fat burning supplements. Ephedra is a potent compound that induces changes in the body, including an increase I core temperature, increase in heart rate and blood pressure, as well boost in awareness. Essentially, ephedra is a stimulant, and it is an effective fat burner because it can induce changes in the body that leads to burning of calories, not only during physical activity, but also during rest periods.

Caffeine has similar effects as ephedra. It is also a stimulant to the central nervous system. When given in moderate doses, caffeine can induce fat burning and with regular intake of supplements a person can enjoy the physical and psychological benefits of weight loss. Caffeine is a powerful inducer of fat oxidation.

Green tea extract is also an agent of fat oxidation. The calorie-burning properties of green tea extract also boost the overall metabolic rate. This is how this substance and food supplements that contain it, lead the body to burn calories right after food is consumed. The effects of green tea extract takes time before it manifests. This cumulative effect is supported by studies that demonstrate the greater amount of fat loss induced during physical activity compared to other naturally occurring fat burning substances. But, given time, it is one of the most powerful natural fat burners around today.

The human body responds to the effects of the chemical compounds introduced to the system. Food supplements that contain active ingredients that induce thermogenesis, fat burning, and weight loss are readily available to individuals who are keen on losing weight. Learn about the pros and cons of each product and consult a physician before developing a regular habit of taking food supplements.

      I would love this to work for me. Fat burners sound like a good idea if they work. I have gotten rid of the sugar out of my diet.
