Best Fat-Burner Supplements in 2020

Best Fat-Burner Supplements in 2020Dividerimage

Most people, most of the time, would agree that they could lose a few pounds— and we’re not talking about deductions from muscle mass or grey matter.

 

Few would argue that the most important approach to fat-loss is changing what you eat. This is the fuel that drives metabolic change, whether that be supporting lean muscle, promoting fat-gain or anything in between.

 

Limiting carbohydrate intake can be helpful in order to get insulin levels under control and to resensitize cells to insulin again—though you don’t have to go completely ketogenic.

 

In addition, increasing fibre and protein intake are great approaches, as well as shifting the types of fats you consume—think more Omega 3 (Linolenic acid, EPA and DHA).

 

Exercise is an important part of living a healthy life. A combination of resistance and aerobic is a great way to go to support bone density and muscle mass as well as aerobic fitness.

If you’ve been sedentary for some time, you don’t have to jump straight in with intense and exhausting activity. In fact, this may actually spike your cortisol levels and make things worse in the short term.

 

Plus, who wants to regularly engage in exercise that is so extreme that you pretty much want to give up and go home after the first session?

 

Light and easy exercise is the best place to start if you have been sedentary for a while. Finding activities that you enjoy are the ones more likely to stick long-term (over decades) is the best option.

 

You can always work your way up to higher intensity exercise down the track. Starting with light exercise also helps to prevent injuries while you adjust to new movements.

 

In terms of calories, it’s extremely difficult to create a significant calorie deficit just through exercise alone—you would need to run a daily marathon. So a dietary focus is paramount.

In saying this, there are plenty of comorbidities that can make one more susceptible to holding fat-mass. If you suffer with any of these, ideally address them with the assistance of a healthcare practitioner.

 

For instance, hypothyroidism, insulin resistance, hypercortisolinemia and an imbalance in the oestrogen to progesterone ratio, amongst others, make fat-loss much more of a battle than it needs to be.

 

On top of this common nutritional deficiencies contribute to high fat-mass, such as a high Omega 6 to 3 fatty acid ratio, low zinc, magnesium, chromium and more.

 

With a balanced dietary approach and some exercise thrown into the mix, a fat-burner product supports the process and can be psychologically motivating, as well as helpful for keep the metabolism firing.

 

Apart from the caffeine content of theses products, which is a proven thermogenic, there are many others that are proven in quality scientific research to be effective, such as Capsaicin, standardized Green Tea and Green Coffee, L-Carnitine and more.

 

And enjoying a caffeinated flavoured drink can be a nice primer for the training session that is about to start. Caffeine is a powerful natural compound, and can sweep apathy away quite effectively so you can train with more motivation.

Thermal Switch

Switch Nutrition have made sure that their products not only offer an exceptional ingredient range, but also refreshing flavours created with natural sweeteners and flavours.

When it comes to sports nutrition products, this is a rare feat of R&D strength. It means that you can enjoy each guilt-free sip knowing that the product has been created with holisitic health in mind.

 

This product contains 250mg of caffeine per serve, extracted from tea leaf, and may be used before exercise or throughout the day whenever an additional energy, mood or thermogenic boost are required.

 

Thermal Switch supports a healthy metabolic rate, with Green Tea, Acetyl L-Carnitine and Citrus aurantium.

 

This is a quality product from a company that takes sports nutrition and wellness supplementation seriously.

 

X50 Showtime

Since the release of X50 Green Tea, Tribeca Health have been enjoying a popularity that most supplement companies only dream of.

 

X50-Showtime-Thermoshred-Thermogenic-Sour-Gummy.jpgTheir thermogenic fat-burner powder offers a range of amino acids and herbal extracts to help you make the most of your time spent exercising, whilst kicking your metabolism into high gear.

 

Standardised Green Tea and Acetyl L-Carnitine are always welcome additions to a fat-burning powder, even though they don’t exactly inspire innovative awe in the consumer.

 

However, they are more tried and tested than most fat-burners out there. Scientific evidence points to the fact that quality Green Tea, with a high EGCG content, and L-Carnitine supplements improve the rate of fat-loss.

 

Of course, as with most natural sports nutrition supplements, expectations need to be curtailed. The kilograms won’t be falling from you over a matter of days. But with consistent exercise, improvements in the quality of your diet and a more health-focused lifestyle, a product like X50 Showtime can offer welcome support.

 

ON Burn Complex

Optimum Nutrition released this product in both a caffeinated and caffeine-free version. For an in-depth technical discussion, check out the Sporty’s Health ON Burn Complex Review.

 Optimum-Nutrition-Burn-Complex-Caffeinated-Grape.jpg

Optimum Nutrition offer an exceptional range of quality sports nutrition products, with their thermogenics designed to make a real difference to fat-loss, mood, energy and more.

 

These products contain a range of proven fat-burners, including Acetyl L-Carnitine, Cayenne Extract (Capsimax), Green Tea and Guarana (caffeinated version only).

 

These ingredient selections are based on positive scientific studies indicating that they are able to naturally support a healthy metabolism, making it a little easier to create the calorie deficit required for fat-burning.

 

The caffeinated version works well as a pre-workout, offering the often very necessary stimulation and motivation required to enjoy your regular training sessions.  

 

Burnx-Tablets.jpgHerbs of Gold Burn X

Don’t be fooled by this products plain aqua-coloured label. This product packs plenty of punch with the inclusion of standardized ingredients, including Green Coffee, Green Tea, Coleus and a little Carnitine.

 

Okay, so there may not be enough Carnitine in here to do a whole heck of a lot. However, setting this ingredient aside, there are more than enough herbal extracts to make a difference.

 

With Green Tea offering 75mg EGCG, you can be sure that you have antioxidant support and an improved ability to access abdominal fat stores for energy, as long as you are exercising.

 

Then there’s Green Coffee and the famous chlorogenic acids. Again, these potent antioxidants believed to be responsible for improvements in all-cause mortality (except for cancer) also support a healthy metabolism.

 

BurnX can be taken three times daily to support healthy fat-loss, along with appropriate dietary, exercise and lifestyle changes that are always integral.

 

Ghost Burn

Ghost have a product range that excites the senses with funky flavour profiles, exciting colour schemes and concept packaging. Fortunately, their ingredients are just as innovative.

 

Ghost-Burn-Thermogenic-mango.jpgGhost Burn offers quality KSM-66 Ashwagandha (Withania), supporting a healthy testosterone to cortisol ratio and stress response, making it easier to adapt to new exercise programs.

 

This product also offers the power of Grains of Paradise, Neurofactor Coffee, Bitter Orange (Citrus aurantium) Cocoa Bean. Choline Bitartrate and L-Tyrosine.

 

On top of all this, each serve contains 1.5 grams of a combination of Acetyl L-Carnitine and L-Carnitine Tartrate and Bioperine Black Pepper extract to support active ingredient absorption.

 

Ghost Burn tastes great, offers 150mg of caffeine per scoop and certainly can turn up the exercise enthusiasm when you’ve got an upcoming training session that may not look too appealing from the depths of a soft couch cushion.
