Vitamin B5, also known as Pantothenic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin from the B group of vitamins. Our bodies do not store it and need to consume it every day to replenish supplies.
We need vitamin B5 to break down proteins, fats and carbohydrates from the food we eat, so that our bodies can use them for energy and rebuilding tissue, muscles and organs. Studies have shown that vitamin B5 is helpful in weight management
Vitamin B6, also known as Pyridoxine, helps with the regulation and production of the thyroid. B6 may ensure the proper functioning of the metabolism system.
People often underestimate the power of vitamin B6 when it comes to weight loss. Vitamin B6 and the mineral Zinc work together to help the body efficiently and properly metabolize food into energy, burning excess fat and speeding up the metabolism along the way. Vitamin B6 may also aid in metabolizing food properly by helping the body to more efficiently and quickly digest food. When the body processes food more efficiently, fat has less chance to collect in the body and create excess weight and other health problems.
Vitamin B6 is also thought to increase thyroid activity, which increases resting metabolic rate. Vitamin B6 can increase energy, support immune system function and improve memory.
L-Carnitine is thought to be one of the most important nutrients for weight loss. Carnitine is critical for energy formation and an active metabolism. Carnitine transports the fatty acids from our blood into the cell for this energy production.
L-Carnitine may enhance the consumption of fat as a source of fuel and has been shown to increase the amount of fat burned during both anaerobic (strength training) and aerobic (cardiovascular) workouts.
It plays an important role in mobilizing fatty deposits found in tissues of overweight individuals.
L-Carnitine has been shown to improve lean muscle strength and also helps to stabilize blood sugar and eliminate cravings for carbohydrates.
Coenzyme Q-10, also called ubiquinone or CoQ10, is a powerful antioxidant/anti-inflammatory thought to have many benefits for treating and preventing obesity. It acts similarly to L-carnitine in that it assists in energy production within the mitochondria. CoQ10 seems to enhance metabolism, giving us greater energy and endurance, a greater ability to lose body fat, preventing the energy decline seen in aging cells. CoQ10 may also maximize the burning of foods for fuel, helping to normalize fats in our blood.
CoQ10 may also protect against hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular problems, including congestive heart failure.
Hydroxycitric acid or HCA is found in the rind of the fruits of the Garcinia cambogia tree.
HCA is thought to help to suppress appetite, resulting in reduced calorie or food intake and cravings. Hydroxycitric acid may also inhibit the production of fats from carbohydrates by promoting the conversion of carbohydrates to glycogen instead of fat.
Adding exercise to weight loss programs can help vitamin supplementation and aid in achieving and maintaining weight loss totals. Individuals should consult a physician to be screened for health problems and vitamin deficiencies before starting a diet and exercise program.
