Solving the Weight Loss Puzzle: The Benefits of Herbs

We all choose our own solutions to the challenges that are affecting our current lifestyle and how we adapt to the results depend on whether they meet our expectations. We live in a world of vanity and the marketing frenzy on weight loss programs appear to be thriving off celebrities who too are battling with weight loss. Establishing a balance between, diet, exercise, and sleep to maintain a healthy weight has always been easier said than done.This effort recalls more than just genetics or what we eat, but the chemistry behind what we eat. Our body is its own puzzle with its own chemical makeup, but we continue to rest our laurels on a one size fits all philosophy. Many “accredited” resources will warn you that natural supplements aren’t necessary safe, but you must do your own research and determine what works for you.


Guarana

The caffeine stimulant in this herb will increase your metabolism to start burning fat, but if you have heart problems (and on medication), you are encouraged not to take this supplement. Risk factors for heart disease tend to be additional hurdles to weight loss.The caffeine stimulant in this herb will increase your metabolism to start burning fat, but if you have heart problems (and on medication), you are encouraged not to take this supplement.

Coleus Forskohlii

Coleus forskohlii is an Ayurvedic herb that contains a potent natural fat-burning substance known as Forslean, but it is safer than guarana because it contains no stimulants. You would typically find this herb mixed with others in a weight loss supplement. Research, research, research….you may not need any of those extra substances to help your cause.

Fucoxanthin

Many of the latest weight loss systems on the market contain this herb and what makes this herb different is the fat burning effect similar to caffeine and yohimbe. but without the side affects. Fucoxanthin is a natural carotenoid from brown seaweed has shown promise for boosting fat burning with no stimulant effects.

What makes this herb more attractive than the previous is that you take a brown seaweed extract with fucoxanthin as a supplement alone and this natural thermogenic is a great option for those who cannot take caffeine because of risk factors for heart disease such as high blood pressure.

The debate over herbs and supplements become a moot point when you consider chronic conditions, like hypertension,  and you can’t ingest enough of the herb to be effective. Guarana not only neutralizes blood pressure medications, but it serves to remedy hypertension. This is a case for little to moderate hypertension cases, but you know most physicians consider holistic medicine to more of money lost , as opposed to cheaper and just as effective treatment for their patients. Do your own research and take charge of your #health and #wellness. The reliance on synthetic drugs leads to this opioid crisis that some how became more important than the meth and crack epidemics, but I will save this for another post.
