So you’re thinking about adding fat burners to your daily routine to help you on your way to that slimmer, trimmer body you’ve always wanted. Hey! Every little bit helps right? So why not fat burners? Well, here is the low-down on fat burners that just might help you to understand what they are and how they work for a weight loss program.
While there are quite a number of products on the market today, many of the ingredients will be similar from one product to another. Caffeine is a drug that is used all over the world mostly for its stimulant effects. Caffeine increases alertness, lowers the perceived exertion of exercise, and decreases reaction time.
Caffeine has another effect that few people know about; it also acts as a fat burner! Caffeine works by increasing the rate of fatty acid metabolism and decreasing the rate of carbohydrate metabolism during aerobic exercise. Glycogen is spared after taking in only 150-250mg of caffeine. With an increased reliance on fat and a decreased reliance on glycogen, more calories will be burned from fat if caffeine is taken prior to exercise.
Keep in mind though that caffeine does have some side effects as well. At higher doses caffeine can cause a slowed heart rate, hypertension, nervousness, irritability, insomnia, and gastrointestinal distress. It is also a diuretic that causes the kidneys to excrete more fluid than normal which can dehydrate the body. Caffeine will not help you lose weight on its own, but if taken before aerobic exercise it can help increase fat burning and help you exercise longer.
CLA & HCA CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is a fatty acid that positively affects muscle mass growth. It is needed for fat and weight loss or diet. CLA acts as a barrier - prevents fat from entering fat cells. It is stored directly in muscle cells where it burns in energy production. If your goal is to lose excess kilograms, CLA will help you achieve the desired weight.
HCA (hydroxycitric acid) suppresses the formation of higher fatty acids and cholesterol, preventing sugar from converting to fat stores. Like CLA, HCA protects muscle mass from reduction during fat loss. The advantage of HCA is also the fact that it suppresses appetite, thereby increasing the likelihood of achieving your weight loss goals.
Synephrine is the active compound in the fruit of a plant called Citrus aurantium. Synephrine is chemically similar to the ephedrine found in many cold/allergy medications and a number of weight loss and energy supplements, which contain ma huang. Its purported benefits are to increase the metabolic rate, increase calorie expenditure, promote weight loss, and increase energy.
Cayenne pepper is thought to help you burn calories because it's spicy. When you eat spicy pepper, it causes your body's temperature to rise. When your body's temperature rises, your body goes into a cooldown mode. This causes your body to burn calories.
Yohimbine raises metabolism by increasing the release of norepinephrine, one of the adrenal hormones. Studies have shown that this product did have a weight loss effect but as with most other products of this kind, long term use and side effects have yet to be studied.
Green Tea Extract Increases Metabolism and thermogenesis. In a study reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, it was found that green tea extract resulted in a significant increase in energy expenditure (a measure of metabolism), plus also had a significant effect on fat oxidation. While some of the effects were originally theorized to be due to the caffeine content of green tea, the researchers discovered that the tea actually has properties that go beyond those that would be explained by the caffeine.
The researchers indicated that their findings have substantial implications for weight control. A 4% overall increase in 24-hour energy expenditure was attributed to the green tea extract, however, the research found that the extra expenditure took place during the daytime. This led them to conclude that, since thermogenesis (the body's own rate of burning calories) contributes 8-10% of daily energy expenditure in a typical subject, that this 4% overall increase in energy expenditure due to the green tea actually translated to a 35-43% increase in daytime thermogenesis.
