12 Important Vitamins for Weight Loss

How vitamins work?

Before we get to the vitamins you need to consume, let’s talk about how vitamins and minerals help you lose weight, and how they work.

Losing weight can become a real challenge if you do not have optimum levels of vitamins and minerals in your body.

You need to understand that your body needs specific and key nutrients that produce enzymes that break down fat and burn calories.

Deficiency in some of these vitamins, and you might find the scale is moving slower than you want.

A blood test can be a good way to check whether you have all the vitamins and minerals needed for weight loss.

But how vitamins help?

We talked about enzymes that our body produces.

The process of breaking down fat is a step by step process, and each step requires an active enzyme.

Think of it as a worker that makes things happen inside and outside cells.

In most cases, these enzymes are activated by a vitamin or a mineral.

If there is no vitamin to turn it on, the enzyme will not work.

The vitamins needed for the weight loss process are pantothenic acid, vitamin B3, vitamin C, and vitamin B2.

In addition, you need a healthy liver, because one of the primary roles of the liver is breaking down fat.

With low vitamin and minerals levels, your liver will not work properly.

Before we get to the important vitamins for weight loss, you need to understand that vitamins do not actually provide energy.

They assist our body in unlocking energy from stored energy sources, such as fat, for example.

Who says “There’s no such thing as a quick workout”

Compound Exercises Will Burn More Calories And Increase Muscle Tone
 
Here are some conventional exercises and a compound alternative that will make your workout much more effective…
The main difference between the old exercises and the new is the amount of muscles being activated at one time.  Sure, running is great exercise, and your working your heart, lungs, and legs.  But if you replace running with a high knee jog, while moving your arms back and forth, you’ll find its just as much cardio as running, but with much more muscle activation throughout your legs and especially abs.
