It’s that time of year again!

With bathing suit season upon us, many are trying to shed a few pounds, so I thought I’d share some of my favorite supplements for supporting healthy weight loss, and optimizing your metabolic efficiency.

Leyla Weighs In: Top supplements for supporting healthy weight loss and metabolic efficiencyCombined with a healthy diet and regular exercise, these supplements can help augment your fitness goals!

EGCG – Containing the highest-potency pure green tea extract available, EGCG enhances thermogenesis (fat-burning) and is a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.

L-Carnitine – Carnitine ushers fat into the mitochondria (the “powerhouse”) of cells, enhancing fat-burning.

NT Factor– Promotes metabolism, maintains the integrity of cell membranes, and supports optimal mitochondrial function.

Orthomega – Essential fatty acids are depleted by the standard American diet, which contains unhealthy fats. Orthomega provides EPA and DHA, crucial to proper biochemical functioning; it has been shown to combat insulin resistance which leads to fat accumulation around the mid-section.

Metasol – A polyphenol derived from lychee, Oligonol confers its benefits by supporting healthy metabolic biomarkers derived by reduction in belly fat and healthy weight maintenance.

Chromemate Chromium GTF – A critical trace element which helps facilitate uptake of glucose into the cells, stabilizing blood sugar and cravings.

Dimpro – A dietary supplement that restores hormonal balance which may help to reverse hormonal weight gain.

L-Glutamine – A critical amino acid in the maintenance of gut integrity with the added bonus of helping to alleviate sugar cravings.

PGX Fiber – A proprietary soluble fiber complex and sugar blocker.

5 HTP – 5 hydroxytryptophan is a direct metabolic precursor of serotonin, a neurotransmitter responsible for mood regulation and satiety.

You can access any of these supplements in Dr. Hoffman’s Fullscript dispensary.
