Six natural foods that act as fat burners

Natural fat burners: an appreciation article

Fat burners are a great complement to a healthy diet and physical exercise plan. They have a favorable effect on our well-being if it’s combined with high-quality nutrition along with a balanced caloric intake. 

There are different types of fat burners but the most appropriate are the ones containing natural ingredients.

Also, several formulations have other beneficial components, such as fiber.

Some of the natural fat burners are:

  • Raspberry ketones
  • Bitter orange
  • Green tea
  • Guarana
  • Garcinia cambogia
  • Green coffee

Let’s take a closer look at each one of them:

1. Raspberry ketones 

Ketones are responsible for raspberry’s characteristic aroma. Due to their ability to accelerate metabolism, increase thermogenesis, and satiety feeling; ketones are widely used in weight control products.

Ketones are also involved in adiponectin hormone production, responsible for regulating metabolism rate. Usually, under high concentrations of adiponectin, there is a higher risk of type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, and obesity.

2. Bitter orange

Hesperidin is a flavonoid glycoside, that can be extracted from the bitter orange peel. This glycoside is thermogenic, reduces cholesterol levels, and has antioxidant properties, strengthening the vascular system. It also has anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. 

With its thermogenic properties, the bitter orange can regulate adipogenesis contributing to the caloric balance. 

3. Green tea

Thanks to a high caffeine concentration, Green tea activates the central nervous system, boosting thermogenesis and physical performance.

Widely known for its antioxidant power and decrease of free radical amount, green tea also prevents several types of cancer and Parkinson’s disease. 

In addition, it has a good concentration of polyphenols such as EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) that impacts positively on fat loss and body weight control.

4. Guarana

Native from Brazil, Guarana increases general body stimulation and weight management due to a high caffeine concentration in its seed. 

Caffeine, encourages triglycerides and glycogen degradation, increasing fatty acid and glucose in plasma concentrations.

Caffeine also impacts the nervous central system, boosting adrenaline. Also improves: 

•Physical exercise performance 

•Intellectual and mental capacity

•Well-being sensation

•Decreasing fatigue

Other benefits of guarana seeds are their antioxidant, antibacterial, and digestive properties. 

The intake of Guarana seeds increases satiety feeling, improves digestive system function while reduces abdominal bloating.

5. Garcinia cambogia

It might sound familiar: these fruits are one of the many curry ingredients. The peel presents a natural fat burner: hydroxy citric acid.

This acid activates calories burning and decreases body fat. 

Also has a synergic effect when is combined with physical exercise. It promotes the body to obtain energy from fatty tissue instead of extracting it from muscle glycogen. This contributes to the depletion of fat sources.

6. Green coffee

Green coffee is the traditional brown coffee without roasting. It has an antioxidant effect thanks to high chlorogenic acid concentration.

This acid also promotes thermogenesis and fat oxidation, reducing body mass, plasma glucose, blood pressure, and lipid levels. These effects help prevent and treat cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Since all previously named ingredients accelerate metabolism, trigger thermogenesis and contribute to weight management; couldn’t be left out from our Giovegen Slim formulation. Daily intake helps support a healthy diet and physical activity.
