Have time to prepare for the summer season and say goodbye to extra pounds with food supplements that will help you incinerate the remains of subcutaneous fat.

Summer is a beautiful time. Finally, you can show the whole world why you devote a lot of time and energy to the training process! However, if you really want to ensure that the remnants of fat are removed by the start of the summer season, consider enlisting the support of nutritional supplements. Nutritional supplements affect many physiological processes and help the body burn more fat per unit of time.
To maximize their potential, it is necessary to combine the ingredients with a synergistic effect, which simultaneously accelerate both the release and utilization of fats. In this article we will study the most popular components of thermogenics from the position of the mechanism of action.
Find out what ingredients to look for in branded fat burners or create your own thermogenic complex.
Subcutaneous fat accumulates in adipocytes, also known as fat cells. To deal with the fat mass, you need to make the size of these cells minimal, and therefore you need to remove from fat cells the lion's share of their contents.
I suggest taking on some ingredients that accelerate the devastation of fat cells.
Remembering this popular stimulant, you are most likely thinking about its exciting effect on the nervous system and how it increases caloric intake.
Although caffeine does kindle the flame of energy metabolism, its main advantage is the ability to bind to fat cell receptors. This is especially true if you take caffeine before training, which is confirmed by the results of several studies.
Take 200-400 mg of caffeine between meals two or three times a day, and one serving should be taken for 30-60 minutes before the start of the training session.
The bark extract of a tree growing in West Africa contains an active ingredient yohimbine, which not only increases sexual desire, but like caffeine contributes to weight loss by increasing the amount of fat released from fat cells.
Take yohimbe in a dose providing the body 5-20 mg yohimbine, 2-3 times a day; one dose should be taken for 30-60 minutes before the start of the training session.
Caffeine and yohimbe do contribute to the release of fats from adipocytes, but this does not mean that all fats will necessarily be burned to the ground. To force the body to use free fats as a fuel, you need to dramatically increase calorie intake.
These four ingredients will increase the number of calories burned by the body, and send a farewell kiss to excess kilograms.
With the extract of green tea, everything is extremely simple: it promotes weight loss by increasing the consumption of calories. The active components of green tea responsible for the fat burning effect are catechins, in particular, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).
Take 500-1000 mg of green tea extract standardized for EGCG. One serving should be taken for 30-60 minutes before the start of the training session.
Before us is one of the active components of bitter orange (Citrus aurantium). Synephrine increases the level of basal metabolism (the amount of calories burned by the body).
Take 5-20 mg of synephrine two or three times a day, and one of these doses should be taken for 30-60 minutes before the start of the training session.
Organic compound of vegetable origin, contained in hot pepper. Increases energy consumption due to the ability to increase the level of adrenaline. A study at the University of Oklahoma showed that subjects who take supplements containing caffeine and capsaicin consume more calories both during and after training.
Look for capsaicin or preparations containing cayenne pepper extract, and take them in a dose that contains 40000-80000 units.
Take 30 minutes before meals two or three times a day, and one of these doses should be taken for 30-60 minutes before training.
This is the scientific name of the extract of the leaves of an olive tree, one of the most important ingredients of which is the chemical compound oleuropein.
Oleuropein is not only a powerful antioxidant, stimulating the immune system; studies show that it also increases the level of norepinephrine and thus affects the intensity of energy metabolism.
Take 500-1500 mg extract of olive leaf leaves 2-3 times daily with meals.
So, free fatty acids drift through the bloodstream, and the energy metabolism is transferred to full capacity. But does this guarantee the complete destruction of all fats? Not always. This ingredient will help increase the amount of fatty acids entering the centers of energy generation.
An organic compound related to amino acids is a key component of a complex transport system that transports fats into the mitochondria, where they are burned to the ground. Several studies have confirmed that the intake of carnitine increases the amount of utilizable organisms of fats.
Take 1-3 a gram of carnitine in the form of L-carnitine, L-carnitine tartrate or acetyl-L-carnitine 2-3 once a day while eating; leave one dose for pre-training meals, and one for food after exercise.
Weight loss is an ongoing battle, during which you must burn fat more than accumulates the body. Of course, you need to take drugs that break down fats and promote their utilization, but you should also think about the priority use of nutrients that block the accumulation of fats.
CLA is a group of natural healthy fats, especially rich in omega-6 fats. Numerous studies have confirmed that the CLC enhances the burning of fats and simultaneously boosts muscle mass and strength.
Take 1-3 grams of CLC at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The more we learn about nutrition and food additives, the more clearly we understand what impact they have on our DNA.
Studies have shown that the following ingredients directly affect the expression of genes involved in fat metabolism.
A chemical compound from the class of carotenoids, which is found in brown algae and gives them a brown or greenish-olive color. The intake of fucoxanthin in the form of a dietary supplement activates genes that increase the consumption of calories. At the same time, he turns off the genes that induce the growth of fat cells.
Studies in humans and animals have shown that such a forcing of fat burning and subsequent inhibition of fat cell growth over time leads to a significant reduction in body weight.
Take 200 mg 2-3 once a day.
This source of essential omega-3 fats provides the body with eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA) acids. It has been proven that omega-3 fats activate the expression of genes that boost energy metabolism and turn off genes that contribute to the accumulation of fats.
Take 2-3 a gram of 2-3 meals a day with meals.
