When you think about fat loss supplements, chances are that ‘natural’ is the last word that comes to mind. Instead, it likely makes you think of a chemical concoction that either sends you on an energy rollercoaster or leaves you glued to the toilet for hours.
It’s not hard to see why fat loss supplements have earned a less-than-glowing reputation. Traditionally, they come in three varieties — diet pills, fat burning powders that have frightening names like ‘Thermoshred Max XXX’ or skinny teas (aka. laxative teas.) These tend to contain powerful stimulants that give you a serious energy crash or other ingredients that can damage your gut.
That said, when used in conjunction with a solid diet and exercise plan, fat loss supplements can be useful (you can read more about that here.) And with a growing amount of companies releasing fat loss supplements that instigate thermogenesis (fat-burning) without the nasty side effects, there are more natural alternatives on the market.
