Whether it’s for fat loss, weight loss, toning, aiding recovery or boosting energy and exercise performance you have in mind; there is bound to be a supplement out there for you that can fit into your daily life. Hellenia Healthfoods have put together four of the best diet and fitness supplements we could recommend to help you work towards making your body goals a reality. On their own each has their own merits but put them together and you’ve got a powerful combination with the potential for achieving real results.

Green Tea Capsules

Green tea is a superfood, and is one of the most potent naturally occurring plant antioxidants, that studies have shown plays a role in promoting good health, but it also has real promise as a natural fat burner and weight loss aid. Green tea naturally contains caffeine which can help us to feel alert, improving concentration and focus. Caffeine can also temporarily rev up the metabolism which boosts thermogenesis and helps the body to burn calories and fat. A healthy metabolism is important, assisting us in our weight loss efforts.  

L-Carnitine Capsules

L-Carnitine is an important amino acid like substance. It is synthesised from the amino acids Lysine and methionine, and is a major source of energy for the muscles, being involved in the metabolism of glucose. It also plays an important role in the oxidation of stored body fat for the release of energy in the cells. It is responsible for transferring long chain fatty acids such as Triglycerides across the cell membranes of mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cell that produces energy). Being a major source of energy it can enhance athletic performance and boost endurance by reducing fatigue whilst exercising, thus increasing your aerobic capacity to help you burn more calories, and lose more body fat. It is becoming popular in supplement form for its fat burning potential.

Raspberry Ketone Capsules

Raspberry ketones are powerful antioxidants, and are the compounds found in fresh raspberries, giving the fruit their aroma and flavour. Research suggests they can be beneficial and a natural weight loss support when taken alongside a healthy diet and exercise regime. Studies show that they may help to regulate the metabolism and curb our appetite due to effects on the levels of a hormone called Adiponectin. Adiponectin is produced by fat cells, and regulates your glucose bloodstream levels, enhancing your muscle’s ability to use carbohydrates for energy, as well as increasing the amount of fat that is broken down for fuel. As low levels of the hormone Adiponectin have been linked with the overweight this compelling evidence means that raspberry ketones in supplement form have become a popular weight/fat loss supplement.

  CLA Capsules

Conjugated Linoleic Acid, or CLA as it is commonly referred to, is a naturally occurring fatty acid of the Omega 6 group. It has been subject to a number of studies into the potentially beneficial effects on human health. In these studies, focus has centred on why it is becoming increasingly popular as a slimming supplement for those looking to achieve fat loss. Studies have shown taking CLA can lead to a decrease in overall body fat, and an improvement in muscle tone, and gain in lean muscle mass. When taking CLA for weight loss you may not see huge reductions in weight, however you will see a reduction in clothes size, this is because it helps to cleanse your muscles of fatty deposits and promote lean muscle growth, and muscle actually weighs more than fat.
