The Role Of Fat Metabolisers In Bodybuilding

The Role Of Fat Metabolisers In Bodybuilding

Less fat and more muscle is the number 1 thing all starting bodybuilders focus on, and it’s a motivation that keeps them going for as long as they lift. Bruce Lee’s nonexistent body fat has been a fascination of many a fitness enthusiast from their earliest days. Cardio exercises in particular are meant to burn through the fat, with strength exercises to rebuild muscles when room has been made. Luckily, there are supplements out there as well, that can help your body turn food into energy more efficiently and at faster rates. Think of them as catalysts to better food-to-energy morphing.

  • Green tea extract – Hailing from Asia, this metaboliser is derived from Camellia sinensis and is recommended by health experts from every corner of the world, due to its fat burning properties. The catechins (epigallocatechin gallate, especially) in the plant’s leaves are water-soluble compounds. Green tea enhances the metabolism, thus insuring more fat is burned, but it is also a diuretic. Additionally, it improved the release of carbohydrates, thus preventing insulin levels from rising, which further promotes fat loss.
  • L-carnitine – This amino acid, found in foods such as meat and dairy products is so natural, that it is produced within our bodies as well. With the purpose of helping carry the fatty acids into a cell’s mitochondria, where fats are oxidized through beta-oxidation, this metaboliser is of prime importance when it comes to burning fat – without l-carnitine, fats are unable to enter the cell and burn up there.
  • Chromium picolinate – This compound is derived from chromium and picolinic acid and, as such, can be used for glucose utilization by insulin, in normal health. In addition to being used to treat type 2 diabetes, this supplement is also used as a metaboliser and it provides the body with a healthy glucose metabolism, helps metabolize carbohydrates and promotes fat burning.
  • Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) – As salt derived from rinds of dried fruit, HCA is supplied to the global market as brindleberry or brindal berry and garcinia. Not only does this compound work as a metaboliser, but it reduces absorption of fat, suppresses appetite and lowers levels of bad cholesterol, in addition. A derivative of citric acid, the HCA is found in tropical plants such as Garcinia cambogia and Hibiscus subdariffa. Both Hydroxycitric acid and l-carnitine, as well as Chromium picolinate, are compounds that can be found in vital strength hydroxyl ripped, a supplement developed with extreme muscle growth in mind. This product is designed for athletes who are looking to achieve lean, ripped, muscular bodies.
  • Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) – Just as in the case in carnitine, CLA can be found in cow, sheep or goat milk and meat. As an unsaturated fatty acid, CLA has been a well known weight loss aid for quite some time now. The effects of the compound in question are increased metabolism rates and prevention of the storage of extra fat. In addition, the CLA rids the fat cells from lipoprotein lipase, the enzyme protecting them.

Metabolisers contain ingredients used to stimulate the body to turn fat into energy, rather than store it. Supplements such as l-carnitine result in losing more fat than with a ‘diet and exercise only’ focused lifestyle. Although many people stay clear of this type of supplements, it is a common misconception that all of them are dirty and dangerous pharmaceuticals, the products of harmful chemical processes.

Most elements found within fat metabolisers are obtained from natural elements, such as plants and are therefore, harmless.
