How do thermogenic fat burners work

Most Americans have tried to loose weight at one point in their life and have turned to dietary supplements to help them. With so many brands and products, it has become increasing hard for customers to distinguish what products actually help and which do nothing. In this little article we will start with the basics of what is a thermogenic fat burner and how it works.

Basics of Thermogenic Fat Burners

Thermogenic supplements are those that may help slightly increase the metabolism for a few hours after you take them, thus resulting in the body burning more calories even when at rest. Fat-burning supplements aren’t necessarily all thermogenic, as some supplements with this label affect fat metabolism by limiting the amount of fat that gets absorbed rather than causing it to be burned more quickly. It takes key ingredients and specific dosing to get a true thermogenic and that is something we will discuss in another post.

Thermogenic supplements are one of the most common types of weight-loss supplements. The banned dietary supplement ephedra was a thermogenic supplement; others include ma huang and bitter orange extract to name just a few more.

Most Effective Thermogenic Fat Burners

 Caffeine and green tea are the thermogenic fat-burning supplements with the most supporting evidence, according to a review article published in Obesity Reviews in 2011. Caffeine appears to have dual benefits, both increasing metabolism and making it so you eat less to start with. The same article noted that the benefits of green tea are most likely due to the combination of beneficial substances called catechins and caffeine and that the catechins appear to have similar effects to caffeine by reducing caloric intake and speeding up metabolism. Catechins and caffeine may have synergistic effects when combined, providing more benefits for weight loss than either of these two substances when consumed separately, according to a review article published in The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry in 2011.
