Weight Loss Products Available At Healthy Options

    Weight Loss Products Available At Healthy Options

    Healthy Options has a variety of products for home, health, and beauty. But, what of their weight loss products are worth looking into? What makes these products promising? Find out here.

    Healthy Options Products For Weight Loss (And Why You Might Want To Consider Them)

    Looking for Healthy Options products that can help you lose weight? You may want to check the following:

    Solgar Green Tea Leaf Extract, 60 Capsules

    Reports say green tea extract can modestly help in weight loss. It’s also rich in antioxidants that fight free radicals. Solgar’s product is vegetarian and contains no gluten, wheat, or dairy. On top of that, it has no artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives.

    Green tea extract supplements are good for people who want the benefits of GTE but do not like the taste of green tea.

    Healthy Options Chromium Picolinate

    Studies revealed that Chromium doesn’t appear to significantly reduce weight, but it does help with insulin resistance, which can contribute to weight gain.

    The caveat is that it’s usually hard to determine if insulin resistance resulted from chromium deficiency. Normal chromium level in the blood is so low that it’s not detected. The next best option is to test chromium in the fingernails or hair, but those are not usually part of routine exams.

    If your doctor discusses insulin resistance with you, you might want to talk about chromium deficiency testing and the possible intake of chromium supplements.

    Healthy Options Slim Support with Garcinia Cambogia and Green Coffee Bean Extract 90 Capsules

    Another Healthy Options product for weight loss worth checking out is Slim Support. It contains Green Coffee Bean, which reports say can support weight loss.

    Cambogia Garcinia, on the other hand, is well-known for its “fat-burning” effect. There are even studies showing that it’s useful in not just the reduction of visceral fat, but also its prevention.

    Healthy Options L Carnitine 500mg 60 Capsules

    If you’ve been searching for weight loss products for a while now, you might have already heard about L-carnitine.

    Reports also concluded that L-carnitine supplementation has a “modest reducing effect on body weight, BMI and fat mass, especially among adults with overweight/obesity.”

    Natrol Carb Intercept Phase 2 60 capsules

    Finally, another product for weight loss that’s available at Healthy Options is Natrol Carb Intercept Phase 2. This contains white kidney bean extract, which studies show aids in weight loss.

    Reminders When it Comes to Supplements

    You might really want to kickstart your weight loss journey with one of these Healthy Options products, but please keep the following things in mind:

    1. Supplements are not as tested as medicines

    Before purchasing any supplement, remember that they do not undergo the same rigorous testing as medicines do.

    FDA tests supplements for safety (or that they have been manufactured safely), but they do not ensure they can produce the effects they say in the package. Hence, the term “no approved therapeutic claim.”

    2. They might interact with your underlying condition and or medicines

    Second, remember that supplements might interact with your existing health condition or maintenance medications. For this reason, consulting your doctor before taking weight loss supplements is a must.

    On top of this, they might also cause some side effects.

    3. They can never replace a healthy diet and physical activity

    Finally, weight loss supplements can never replace a healthy diet and exercise. Studies may show that they can support weight loss, but the best way to do it is to improve your overall health through a healthy lifestyle.

    If you’re still keen on taking supplements, consult your doctor for proper guidance. Let them know your goals, illness (if any), and physical activity. That way, they can better guide you into losing weight.
