Weight loss is an uphill battle. You lose some, you gain some. Then, you lose some and gain some more. If it were easy, everyone would be able to reach their target weight loss goals, but unfortunately, it isn’t that easy. Luckily, there are a few natural ingredients that actually work in helping you to lose weight. These are ingredients that have been clinically studied and proven to work.
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), a naturally occurring fatty acid that is found in meat and dairy products, with pasture raised being the best sources. It is a fatty acid similar to omega 6 fatty acids, however, with a few more benefits. CLA has been shown to increase metabolism and reduce body fat. Your body cannot produce CLA on its own, therefore, the best ways to get it is through food or supplementation. Even though CLA works well on its own, it is even better when coupled with a low carb diet.
Green Coffee Beans are coffee beans that have not been roasted, they are completely green. These beans, particularly, have high amounts of Chlorogenic acid. Chlorogenic acid has been shown to not only regulate blood pressure, but also aid in regulating blood sugar. It is thought to help with the utilization and absorption of carbohydrates. Many studies have shown that it has been able to effectively reduce body fat. If you are looking to supplement with it, 200 to 400 mg, per day, is what has been shown to work.
Garcinia Cambogia is a tropical fruit grown mostly in Indonesia and is known for its effectiveness on fat loss. The main component in Garcinia is hydroxycitric acid. This acid has been shown to decrease appetite and increase metabolic rate. It also showed promise when it came to controlling blood sugar, decreasing insulin and regulating triglyceride levels. Not bad for a fruit!
Green Tea Extract EGCG has been used for centuries and is known to help increase energy levels.

EGCG is rich in the polyphenol, epigallocatechin-3-gallate, which is also an extremely powerful antioxidant. The active constituents in green tea can boost the effects of some hormones. These hormones can aid with decreasing fat and increasing metabolism. Although supplementing with it in higher doses is very effective, drinking it daily can give you a good boost, as well.
