Diet Supplements: What To Take and What To Stay Away From

Diet supplements have been around for years, but are constantly plagued with inaccurate labels and poor quality testing. But new things continue to come out every year.

Here's what to look out for in your diet supplements.


Caffeine is the basis of almost every single weight loss supplement. Caffeine is beneficial for increasing endurance throughout the day.

Caffeine works by targeting the A1 receptors in the brain, which are normally taken up by adenosine. Adenosine is the chemical our body produces that makes us sleepy throughout the day.
But by caffeine taking its place, it increases the amount of time before we start to feel fatigued throughout the day.

There are different types of caffeine that have different metabolize rates. Caffeine anhydrous has around a 4-hour time frame before it is out of the system. Caffeine citrate has a 6-hour time frame before it metabolizes out, but does take longer to kick in compared to caffeine anhydrous.


Carnitine is an amino acid that is responsible for metabolizing our fat cells. It should be one of the key and first ingredients when looking for a good weight loss supplement.

The way Carnitine works is by bringing fat to the mitochondria to oxidize. It specifically targets long-chain fatty acids, which are the ones that tend to store around our midsection.

Because of Carnitines ability to utilize fat cells and food intake for energy more effectively, Carnitine also helps increase endurance. Anytime we can increase endurance throughout the day, we can continue to be more active and decrease the number of calories needed for these activities.

Green Tea Extract

Green tea extract is another common basis for many diet supplements. This is because of the benefits of green tea catechins, which typically increase the number of calories burned from fat rather than glucose.

Our body will normally use glucose first as the main source of energy because of its readily available usage from being stored in muscles. Because fat tends to store in organs like the liver, it makes it less available.

This is where green tea comes into play. Green tea extract that has a high ECGC count can tell our body to utilize this stored fat more effectively.

Do keep in mind, this seems to be strictly based on being paired with little to no caffeine intake.

Diet Supplements: Always Read the Ingredients

Reading the label is by far the most important aspect of diet supplements. Avoid taking a concoction of different ingredients where you do not know the amount of each ingredient. Be wary of fairy dusting, where a company only puts the ingredient in a product, but at such small dosages that would not impact performance.
