Fat Burner Supplements Explained
Fat Burners are a category of supplements that are supposed to aid your body in losing body fat. The formulations very from company to company but for the most part, they have a common goal, to increase your metabolism. For the most part they accomplish this through stimulants. They usually use caffeine, taurine and other ingredients that effectively derive down to a stimulant.
What Fat Burners Work and What Fat Burners Fail?
New fat burner supplements come out every day, so to review all of them is not feasible. Rather I want to give you the information to make informed decisions on your own.
Fat Burner Supplements Effectiveness
Does the supplement that you considering have proven and effective ingredients for what they are advertising or are they only “lab tested”? There is a huge problem with lab tests, they isolate specific functions. They are not looking at how ingredients work within the ecosystem of our bodies.
Raspberry Ketones is a perfect example of this. Isolated in huge amounts, raspberry ketones do cause fat cells to shrink. That sounds great right! No, the amount that it takes to shrink a fat cell is way above the level that your body will ever let that chemical reach inside your body. No to mention how it works to shrink the fat cells. It works a lot like how shaking salt on a slug works.
The slug gets smaller but if you rinse it off, poof, it swells right back up. You are not actually losing any fat, you are only temporarily shrinking the fat cells, just like a belly fat wrap. It is not helping the issue, only hiding it temporarily.

Exercise Caution with Fat Burner Supplements
Heavily marketed fat burners are often times on the edge of what is considered a normal or appropriate dosage with their ingredients. Unlike pharmaceutical medicines, supplements are not subject to the same rigorous testing to determine appropriate dosages, sage dosages or even effective dosages. If you decide on fat burner that is right for you, take a test dose of half of what they recommend the first day. If you feel fine, try the full dosage the next day.
During a testing phase like this, you are looking for signs that you are getting too much stimulant for your system. Everybody has a different level of comfort with how their body reacts.
Signs of Too Strong of a Fat Burner
If you start to feel jittery that is usually a good sign that you have too much stimulant in your system. Other symptoms include: blurry vision, trouble focusing, erratic heart rate and nausea. If you start experiencing any of these symptoms first address their severity. If your heart is beating funny, you should probably get to an urgent care for observation. Drink lots of water to keep your kidneys functioning. ***This is not medical advice just a precautionary statement and general guideline. ***
Side Effects of Fat Burner Supplements
The caution statements above give you a good idea of what side effects are typically associated with fat burners. Struggle focusing is usually one of the biggest side effects with stimulants (unless you have ADD) which is why many companies include ingredients that help you with mental focus. It is really to balance out the effects of the stimulants. The B-vitamins are vasodilators so rosy checks and flushing of the skin is often experienced.
Why Use Fat Burner Pills
This supplement class should be used with caution and definitely should not be the first place some turns to lose weight. It should be used only after or in combination with a solid nutrition plan and routine exercise. They can be very beneficial for people that are struggling to lose weight or just can’t seem to turn the corner.
