Do Vitamins Help Weight Loss?

Almost a third of the U.S. population is overweight and excess weight increases the risk for many different diseases. If you’re serious about losing weight, you need to start eating healthy and exercising. The key is to burn more calories than you eat in a day. That’s the way you lose weight. It’s really that simple. Weight loss and gains are mathematical events. If you want to aid in your weight loss goals taking a weight loss vitamin would be very helpful.

When you have a reduction of calories, you could potentially lose nutrients. Diets that are low in total calories may not contain adequate amounts of various vitamins and minerals. For that reason, taking a weight loss vitamin/mineral supplement would be a good thing to keep your body healthy.

The human body requires a diet of over forty-five nutrients to maintain good health. These can be divided into six categories: vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates, fats, and water. Regular intake of all vitamins and minerals is necessary to supply and store nutrients for all bodily functions. Multivitamins, minerals and specifically, a weight loss vitamin, will provide a convenient way to take a variety of these nutrients from a single product to prevent deficiencies and aid you in your weight loss goals. They also can help achieve a higher intake of nutrients believed to be beneficial if taken above typical dietary levels.

Taking chromium may also be beneficial since it plays an essential role in the metabolism of carbohydrates and fat and in the action of insulin. Pantothenic acid (B5) also aids in the processing of carbohydrates and fats. Both would be considered a weight loss vitamin and could potentially aid you in reducing body fat and calories.

If you plan on taking a weight loss vitamin, be sure it helps to increase your energy level. Our body's energy levels are directly related to the amount of certain nutrients active in our body. A minor deficiency of any nutrient can lead to feelings of fatigue. Lack of sleep, stress, infection and disease can also lead to a lack of energy. Diets that restrict calories also increase the risk of fatigue.

If you lack energy the first thing you should do is make sure you are getting the 100% recommended daily dosage of vitamins and minerals. That’s why you need to be sure to take a weight loss vitamin that provides you with the 100%. Any less just isn’t worth it.

You could call the B Vitamins the weight loss vitamins. They are essential for converting food to energy. Iron is helpful carrying oxygen in the blood. Magnesium is also necessary as it helps convert carbs, proteins and fats into energy as do many Amino Acids. Also, maintain proper fluid levels in the body as even mild dehydration can result in fatigue. Drink at least eight glasses of water a day, and more if you have a rigorous workout routine.

Herbs that may help weight loss are spirulina, royal jelly, and green tea.

Don’t fall for scam weight loss pills that claim to increase your metabolism, block fat, and reduce cortisol. All you need is a quality multivitamin.
