Tried And Trusted Supplements To Aid Weight Loss

Tried and tested supplements

Every day there’s someone trying to sell you the next greatest supplement, the one that will cause the pounds to simply melt off your body. In truth, there’s no silver bullet for losing weight.

However, there are some supplements that can help you feel full after eating for a longer amount of time, others that can help suppress an over-active appetite, and still others that can help your body burn a little more fat. In this article, we’ll review the most promising supplements from each of these types.

Let’s look at supplements that can help you to feel full for longer

In technical terms, this is called “increased satiety.” The intuitive reason why supplements of this kind can help you lose weight is that by feeling full longer, you’ll have less motivation to eat more calories. And the key to losing weight of course, is to eat less calories than you burn in a given day. So, what compounds have been shown to have an effect on satiety?

The most evidence exists for a supplement called 5-HTP. 5-HTP is a natural compound, and has been shown to increase a chemical in your brain called serotonin, which is related to personal happiness. As a result, 5-HTP is most commonly used for stress relief. However, when it’s taken with food, 5-HTP makes you feel fuller for longer. In fact, in one study it reduced how much food was eaten by 40%.
