Sometimes the hardest part of dieting is losing those last few stubborn pounds. Everyone carries their weight differently, but for most they hang around your mid-section and cause unwanted belly fat.
If you feel like your weight loss routine could use a little boost, doctors say that taking a daily supplement can help give your body the vitamins and minerals it may be missing. That’s not the say that supplements will magically erase fat, but they can definitely help kickstart your metabolism, especially when you’re eating right and exercise daily.
Not sure which supplements you should be taking? Anti-inflammatory supplements are great for weight loss and reliving the body of inflammation.
Many doctors recommend taking fish oil supplements as a first step to burning more belly fat. Fish oil is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and its role in promoting a healthy metabolism and body.
These supplements can even help reduce visceral fat by reducing inflammation in those with high belly fat. This is also why it’s recommended to eat a diet with fish high in omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon. They loaded with healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
"Fish meat taken along with a balanced diet of fruits and vegetables can be effective in losing weight as it has less saturated fats as compared to other meats. But this study cannot be taken as final proof of fish oil affecting obesity. More research is required to see that if there is any direct impact of fish oil on obesity.” said Dr. Rupali Datta, the chief clinical nutritionist at Fortis-Escorts Hospital. “Omega-3 fatty acids derived from fish oil are definitely beneficial. Vegetarians can add more almonds to their diet to derive these essentials fats.”
But for anyone who’s not too big on eating fish, especially if you’re vegetarian or vegan, taking a fish oil supplement can be good for you.
