L-carnitine is an amino acid whose role in the body is to transport fatty acids to the mitochondria of our cells, which convert them into energy. Carnitine is indicated in diets for weight loss associated with cardio sports activity. With carnitine, the more you exercise, the more fat you burn!
It is the favorite fat burner for people looking to lose belly fat. CLA is a fatty acid that reduces fat storage, reduces the size of fat cells and promotes the mobilization of stored fat to be converted into energy. Too, it is the only fat burner to target the abdominal area.
Hydroxycitric acid comes from the Garcinia cambogia plant. It effectively burns fat and prevents its storage. Many people use it during parties to store as little fat as possible. Often, HCA is combined with fat and sugar scavengers like nopal and chitosan.
Green tea is often present in fat burners. It contains caffeine, theine, theanine, polyphenols and is indicated for weight loss, water retention and insulin sensitivity problems. Green tea is a key asset for weight loss, the fight against water retention and cellulite. In addition, it is naturally basifying and contributes to the pH balance in the body.
Beware of false promises
Fat burners make slimming candidates fantasize, and it’s easy to succumb to the temptation of impulse buying when advertising campaigns feature lean, well-toned bodies. But don’t trust it.
A fat burner accompanies a suitable diet
For your fat burner to be truly effective, you must first follow a diet plan for weight loss or muscle definition. Fat burners, like all food supplements, are intended to supplement the diet. They are neither miracle products nor ineffective placebos. They do their job if the conditions are met to achieve a good cut and a body weight that suits you.
Follow the instructions
It is common to see people double or triple the dosages so that their burner acts faster. By doing so, you risk emptying your bottle very quickly and especially to put you in danger. If your burner contains caffeine, you put yourself at risk of anxiety, sleep and heart problems in the worst case. The recommended dosages are always listed on the label. Just follow these tips.
