They may in particular be composed of spirulina, konjac, artichoke, guarana, probiotics, green tea, nettle, fruit, mate, chromium, etc. These active ingredients are real allies to accompany you in your slimming routine to help you lose the few pounds that bother you here or there or simply to feel more toned and better in your body.

Today, faced with the multiplicity of slimming products, it is difficult to choose the one that suits you. Depending on whether you want to boost your metabolism, reduce your waistline, fight against water retention, or simply reduce your appetite, the most effective product will be different. We give you some advice just below so that you know which slimming food supplement is best suited to your body.

How to choose your slimming food supplement?

To choose the right slimming food supplement, start by identifying the major problem that is holding you back from achieving your goal, whatever it may be. If you tend to retain water, choose draining products. If you have a big appetite and you can't limit yourself, turn to appetite suppressant food supplements. Finally, if you tend to store fat quickly, choose fat burners.

Fat-burning action

A fat-burning food supplement is formulated with active ingredients that stimulate the body's ability to burn fat stored in the body. It can have a thermogenic action, that is to say it will increase metabolism and therefore burn more energy during exercise and/or rest. It can also have a lipolytic action by attacking fat cells, that is to say it will cause the breakdown of stored fats and allow the body to use them as fuel. This type of supplement targets the entire body for overall weight loss and a reduction in body fat percentage. It is particularly aimed at people who have a slow metabolism. A slow metabolism is characterized by an almost systematic accumulation of fats as energy reserves, which can lead to weight gain. On the contrary, a fast metabolism refers to a category of people whose body burns calories relatively quickly without storing fat.

Metabolism Boost is a food supplement that stimulates lipid metabolism and weight loss. In the form of delicious blueberry-flavored chewable tablets, it is formulated with cola, Moro orange, chromium and choline. This complex of active ingredients is the perfect combo to dislodge already installed fat and reduce its future storage, while detoxifying the liver and regulating blood sugar. In addition to being made in France, Boost Metabolism are composed of 90.7% ingredients of natural origin and are suitable for all diets (gluten-free, lactose-free and vegan).

Draining action

Many women suffer from water retention and circulation problems. They are most often responsible for discomfort such as weight gain, heavy legs, swelling and edema, etc. Food supplements with a draining action are excellent products that promote the elimination of excess water and toxins accumulated in the body. The emunctory organs (liver, kidneys, etc.) are called upon to better evacuate them naturally. You will feel lighter. You should also know that most of the time, cellulite is linked to poor blood circulation or water retention. Using a drainer can therefore help your body better eliminate water, toxins and dimples.

If you are affected by these daily discomforts, you can try the Draining Powder , diluted in a large glass of water. It will help you lose weight while strengthening your metabolism and draining your body. Indeed, the synergy of carefully chosen natural active ingredients, such as spirulina, caffeine, or green mate, allows for complete action. Green mate organic has diuretic properties and therefore helps to evacuate toxins and drain the body. Spirulina organic helps regulate the quantity of sugar present in the blood, fill any deficiencies and limit snacking between meals. Organic guarana is rich in caffeine, a molecule which allows it to promote the breakdown of lipids. Pumpkin seeds help satiate you and reduce cravings for snacking thanks to their high protein content. This powder perfectly complements your diet to help you improve your figure, whatever the season. It is a 100% natural origin formula made in France which is suitable for all diets (gluten-free, lactose-free, GMO-free and vegan).

Action suppresses appetite

It is not always easy to reduce calorie intake on your own. The appetite suppressant food supplement is the best alternative to reduce your appetite. Very often formulated from plants, it will swell in the stomach and trigger the feeling of satiety, helping to limit your appetite and the desire to snack and thus delay the reappearance of the feeling of hunger. Depending on the active ingredients used, it can also slow down the absorption of sugars and fats ingested during the meal. We find appetite suppressants rich in pectins that can absorb large volumes of water in the stomach, thus creating the feeling of satiety. There are also appetite suppressants rich in amino acids with a direct action on satiety. Finally, there are appetite suppressants formulated with exciting substances such as guarana which reduce appetite.

The Weight Loss cure is a 3-in-1 food supplement that helps limit cravings, regulate blood sugar and activate metabolism. The formula is composed of a synergy of active ingredients, zinc, mango seed extract, vitamins B6 and C, which boost metabolism. It is composed of artichoke, a key active ingredient to help lose weight, with antioxidant properties, which will stimulate the liver and gallbladder. Nopal has the capacity to absorb a large quantity of liquid thanks to its fibers, which allows it to both play the role of fat sensor, but also to have an appetite suppressant action once in the stomach. Finally, chromium completes this formula by regulating blood sugar and thus preventing the storage of excess sugar in fat cells. These small slimming capsules with chlorophyll are vegan, composed of ingredients of natural origin and made in France

Are dietary supplements really effective for weight loss?

Be careful, food supplements are not miracle pills. Based on this observation, it is important to emphasize that this is not a sufficient solution for losing weight. On the contrary, they are only of interest if they are associated with a healthy diet – foods rich in essential fatty acids, amino acids, complex carbohydrates, micronutrients – and the practice of regular physical activity. It is important to understand that no food is prohibited to lose weight but it is all a question of proportion and quantity, hence the advantage of a balanced diet. It is important to combine this diet with regular physical exercise to increase energy expenditure.

Thanks to sport, a few good eating habits and food supplements consumed in occasional treatments, you will be able to lose weight in an effective, healthy and sustainable way. Flee at all costs from frustrations and restrictive diets with yo-yo effects and keep in mind that eating should remain a pleasure! If you adopt a healthy lifestyle combined with a course of food supplements, your weight loss will be even more effective.
