Eight Fat Busting Supplements Backed by Science

(NaturalNews) Although specified quantities are a little vague, there are a few supplements that are gaining support (from research in mainstream studies!) as fat busters. These are not diets and quick fixes; but these supplements have been shown to be advantageous in the fight against fat.

Vinegar - "Modern scientific research suggests that acetic acid, the main component of vinegar, may help control blood pressure, blood sugar levels, and fat accumulation." Apple cider vinegar has long been an alternative health staple, even a cure-all, with claims ranging from weight loss to the elimination of gout, arthritis, and acne. It`s nice to see a powerful folk remedy finally tested in its claims and undoubtedly validated.

Lignans - This link is only a correlation, but pretty strong. "High intake of lignans was associated with lower body fat mass and BMI, compared to women with the lowest average intakes." The highest amount of lignans are found in flax seed, and some other notable lignacious foods are sesame seed, sunflower seed, kale, broccoli with red wine topping out the best of the beverages. So can you eat as much food with lignans as you want? Probably not. Calories cannot be ignored, though these foods may lead to a feeling of fullness that could help you eat less. For a more complete list of foods with lignans, see http://www.dietaryfiberfood.com/lignan.php

White Tea - While green tea may be the most publicly touted for weight loss (with an equal amount of controversy), white tea`s anti-fat nature has been tested and proven in the lab. Researchers found that white tea actually stopped the development of new fat cells and increased the fat use of old cells. But why white tea? Well, white, green, and black teas can all be made from the same tea leaves, white tea is just picked earliest. It`s made from the first buds of the plant and is "less processed than the other teas and contains more of the ingredients thought to be active on human cells."

Curcumin (in Turmeric) - When fed a high fat diet, mice fed curcumin gained less weight. BONUS: These lucky mice also showed lower cholesterol levels and separate studies show curcumin can lower rates of dementia!

Red Pepper - Capsaicin, the hot part of hot peppers stopped immature fat cells in the lab from growing up and filling with fat. Just like some diners with timid tastebuds, capsaicin can also cause some fat cells to self-destruct. Extra hot sauce, please.

Melon Extract - The study was carried out on hamsters because they experience cholesterol build up similarly to us. Two groups of hamster were fed high fat diets, but by the end of the studies, the hamsters that also took melon extract had lower body weights, by 29%! Bonus: This supplement has also been proven to lower perceived stress and improve quality of life which makes sense it would also help with weight gain since added stress can mean added weight.

CLA & Safflower oil - Fellow Natural News writer Sherry Baker has the scoop here: http://www.naturalnews.com/026599_body_fat_w...

These are not get thin quick schemes and are certainly not diets on their own. None of this research says if you add these supplements to your diet you will immediately drop massive amounts of weight; they do not cure obesity. When added to a high fat, high calorie lifestyle, these diet accessories will allow you to gain less weight than overeating without their help. It is more realistic to think they can help you maintain a healthy weight and help balance out those occasional days of overconsumption. Most people know when they`ve overeaten. If you`re trying to lose weight, intuitively find your baseline for satiation and stay true to yourself.
