As mentioned in our previous post about the most important fat burning hormone, there are 6 odd flat-belly herbs that together have been shown to tackle Leptin, the fat burning hormone, from 2 problematic angles: production and sensitivity and help you to burn fat faster.
The 6 Herbs that support Leptin levels
#1. Irvingia Gabonensis, a powerful extract from the African mango that has been shown to support leptin sensitivity by inhibiting the production of C-reactive protein (CRP), a chemical in the body that has been linked with the development of leptin resistance, by up to 52%.
And check this out…
To further support this extracts dramatic effect on weight loss, in one double-blind study, 102 otherwise-healthy overweight volunteers received either 150 mg of Irvingia extract or a placebo, twice daily prior to meals, for a period of 10 weeks.
At the end of 10 weeks, the Irvingia group lost an average of 28 pounds (13.1% decrease in body weight), shed 6.7 inches from their waistline, and had reduced their total body fat by an average of 18.4%!
Furthermore, it was found that those who supplemented with Irvingia experienced a 26% decrease in total cholesterol, and blood sugar levels dropped from an unhealthy fasting blood level of 85.5 to a much healthier 66.3!
As expected, those receiving the placebo experienced no measurable difference in scale weight, girth measurements, body fat percentage, or health markers
#2. Oleanolic Acid.
This compound extracted from olive tree leaves has a stimulatory effect on a specific gut peptide called Glucagon-like Peptide-1 (GLP-1). Research shows that an oral dose of this extract can increase GLP-1 by 48%, which has in turn been closely linked to increased leptin production.
#3. Modifilan, a potent seaweed extract harvested from pristine Arctic waters off the coast of Iceland, has been shown to stimulate increased leptin production in fat cells by up to 18% through its ability to stimulate Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) in the adrenals. Stimulation of TSH in turn stimulates the production of leptin in fat cells.
#4. Panax Notoginseng, a well-known and commonly used traditional Chinese herb called “Shan Qi” by master herbalists was recently shown to also have unique metabolic properties, including naturally suppressing appetite and increasing leptin sensitivity.
#5 & 6. YerbaX™, a potent blend of a rare green tea extract and South American yerba mate extract which together have been shown to synergistically increase resting metabolic rate and mobilize fatty acids from fat cells to be burned, all while suppressing appetite and increasing energy and alertness.
So what does all of this mean to you?
It means that with the help of these 5 research-backed ingredients you can ensure your body’s #1 fat burning hormone, leptin, is working for you, not against you—an utter impossibility with traditional calorie restriction.
The end result?
You burn more fat, in less time, and without the struggle.
So what if this still doesn’t work?
If you are already using one or more of these fat burning herbs, and do not see enough result yet, in our next post we will share one of the best tips for burning belly fat by increasing the function of Leptin, the hormone that helps you burn fat:
