When you are unhappy with your body and looking to lose weight, it’s tempting to search for anything that can help expedite the process. It’s not uncommon to turn to weight loss supplements or herbal remedies, but with thousands of options out there, how do you know which is best for you?
In this article, we uncover natural weight loss products and the benefits of a healthy approach compared to big-name weight loss pills, often with hidden ingredients and false promises.
Greenbush Natural Products is the home for natural weight loss products that contain the purest herbs, without any dangerous stimulants, and supported by current research. Listed below are the various natural weight loss products that we provide, detailed with information regarding how they help support natural weight loss and healthy habits.
Yerba Mate Extract
Yerba mate is made into an herbal tea by the use of its dried leaves and twigs. It’s considered an antioxidant powerhouse and contains nearly every vitamin and mineral your body needs, however, it contains a small amount of these nutrients, therefore, it’s unlikely to have a large impact on your diet alone. When paired along with a healthy diet and exercise, yerba mate can help you naturally lose weight.
In a 12-week study conducted by PubMed Central, a group of overweight people were given 3 grams of yerba mate powder every day and resulted in losing an average of 1.5 lbs and reduced their waist-to-hip ratio by 2% at the end of the study. Another group was given a placebo and gained an average of 6.2 pounds as well as increased their waist-to-hip ratio by 1%.
Greenbush Natural Weight Loss Products offer the purest yerba mate herb in the form of a concentrated extract for a more effective, easily digestible, and higher absorption effect on the body. At full medicinal strength (1ml = 1000mg), Greenbush offers an alcohol-free, concentrated strength herb.
Green Tea Extract
Green tea is a type of tea made from the leaves and buds of Camellia Sinensis, the same plant black tea and oolong tea are made from, however, green tea has not gone through the withering and oxidation process. Because it is loaded with antioxidants and various plant compounds, many believe that green tea can increase metabolism and ultimately help you lose weight naturally.
This healthy extract is loaded with epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), an antioxidant that can help burn calories, boost metabolism, and ultimately break down fat cells. Green tea also contains caffeine, and when caffeine is combined with EGCG, it creates a synergistic effect. When your fat cells break down, it is released into the bloodstream for use as energy by cells like muscle cells. As if this didn’t sound impressive enough, studies have shown that with the use of green tea, the increase in metabolism shows even when not exercising.
Our alcohol-free, liquid green tea extract works in the way that you absorb all of the nutrients rather than discarding some as you do when you brew tea. Greenbush Natural Product’s extracts are always alcohol-free, at medicinal strength, and holistically balanced. Each is manufactured in the US and inspected by the FDA because your health depends on it.
Ginger Root Extract
Ginger is a flowering plant most commonly used for its roots. Ginger’s antioxidant properties can reduce inflammation leaving people feeling fuller for longer, which can ultimately lead to weight loss. A meta-analysis of studies done by PubMed Central looked at ginger’s benefits to weight loss and found that ginger has a significant effect on body weight and hip-to-waist ratio.
While ginger offers a long list of health benefits for the entire body, it is often used as a natural weight loss product and has benefits of a healthy approach for many. Ginger aids in:
Digestion – Relieves bloating, constipation, and other gastrointestinal disorders. When everything moves more smoothly, you benefit by losing weight more easily.
Boosts Metabolism – Ginger is a thermogenic food, which means it raises your body temperature by burning stored body fat, which ultimately boosts your metabolism. Ginger is also high in fiber which can play a part in raising your metabolism.
Appetite Suppressant – Ginger can improve leptin levels, which is a hormone that takes a part in you feeling full and satisfied after a meal.
Reduced Cortisol Levels – Consuming ginger can help restore your internal balance, promote overall wellbeing, and weight loss.
Ceylon Cinnamon Capsules
Cinnamon is derived from the inner bark of various tree species from the genus Cinnamomum. Natural weight loss products like cinnamon is a healthy approach to boost metabolism, increase insulin sensitivity, and decrease blood sugar – all key components for losing weight and controlling type-2 diabetes. Cinnamon is also full of fiber, which helps to reach that “full” feeling.
As one of our top-selling herbal supplements, our Ceylon Cinnamon capsules contain very low levels of coumarin. Unlike most types of cinnamon, this can be consumed on a daily basis without detrimental effects.
Cayenne powder is made from a dried, moderately hot, chili pepper. While many often think that spicy foods complicate digestion, that simply is not true. In fact, cayenne has been used to aid in digestive health for centuries. Aside from busting that myth, it is said to be the most powerful natural ingredient for weight loss.
The main ingredient in cayenne pepper is capsaicin, which is a thermogenic chemical (remember that term? *hint* ginger root). A thermogenic chemical can increase your metabolism and decrease your appetite, all while increasing your body’s temperature and burning fat cells.
You might improve the effectiveness of capsules and extracts by combining them together. For example, combining cayenne with green tea has proven benefits of weight loss. To learn more about combinations of natural weight loss products, contact the Greenbush team here.
Chickweed is, in fact, a weed. It’s an annual and perennial flowering plant. However, to herbalists, it’s an alternative medicine that offers significant health benefits. Chickweed is often listed as an ingredient in common weight loss supplements, so why is it considered a natural weight loss product?
In studies conducted with chickweed as a natural weight loss product, test subjects that had consumed chickweed orally had experienced suppressed progesterone-induced obesity. In addition, chickweed has anti-inflammatory properties and aids in digestion, further promoting the benefit of a healthy approach to natural weight loss products.
Psyllium is a plant that produces seed husks that is high in fiber. It is most often used as a laxative as it soaks up the water in your gut and makes bowel movements much easier without creating flatulence. Being able to easily pass bowel movements is essential for weight loss. This characteristic of psyllium that soaks up water also offers the feeling of being full.
This seed husk is a great option for those on low carbohydrate diets. Psyllium capsules are one of the simplest, healthiest, and most effective herbs for weight control. Just be sure to take with sufficient water.
