When your metabolism is on point it’s easier to keep off extra weight. But inflammation can negatively affect your system so try these anti-inflammatory supplements to give your body an extra weight loss boost.
Omega-3 Fish Oil
An omega-3 fish oil supplement helps your body burn extra fat and reduces your appetite, says Dr. Luiza Petre, MD, director of the Medi-Weightloss Clinics. A clinical trial found that women who supplemented their diet and exercise routines with omega-3 fatty acids lost a greater amount of weight, whether or not they followed a restricted calorie diet.
The burning hot sensation you feel after eating a potent pepper comes from the capsaicin. But you don’t need to munch on cayenne to get the beneficial side effects. Dr. Petre says that fiery sensation speeds up metabolism, curbs your appetite and prevents fat from building up on your body.
Green tea is naturally high in anti-inflammatory catechins that inhibit body fat from accumulating. It also has caffeine that pairs with the catechins to up metabolism and increase fat burn. Take a supplement containing green tea extracted from the leaf or drink the recommended daily dose (10–50 mg) in 2 cups.
Probiotics are live “good” bacteria that keep body inflammation at bay, especially in your gut. A cup of keifr or yogurt tastes great but Dr. Douglas Lord, M.D of the Nava Health & Vitality Center says the level of probiotics in dairy are limited. He recommends a pill that gives you a variety of probiotic strains in the billions.
