White Kidney Beans (Phaseolus Vulgaris) and Fat Loss
A new weight loss product has shown potential in a recent study. White beans, or Phaseolus vulgaris, may increase the amount of weight lost during dieting, as well as helping keep it off during maintenance diets. The beans are known as a carbohydrate blocker, meaning less carbs are absorbed in the intestine and hence used as calories. After 12 weeks of supplementation, the participants lost an extra 2kg of weight when taking white bean extract along with a mildly reduced calorie intake, compared to placebo. They also found that it reduced cravings for sugary and fatty foods, whereas the placebo group experienced an increase.
If you're a person who finds themselves craving sugary and fatty foods and let's be honest, who isn't; a fat loss supplement with white kidney bean extract may be exactly what you're after. Try something like BSc Hydroxyburn Pro Clinical 2.0.
New Zinc Form Increases Zinc Absorption
A recent study has found a new formulation of zinc that increases the bioavailability, meaning more is absorbed from your supplement. Compared to the traditional zinc oxide absorption rate of 49.9%, zinc citronate has 61.3% absorbed. This means that when included instead of zinc oxide, you will gain more of the benefits associated with zinc despite ingesting the same amount. Zinc is one of the minerals associated with testosterone boosting effects, and is included in many testosterone related products, as well as increasing fat metabolism.
Zinc is one of the most important minerals in the human body and no doubt plenty of ZMA supplements will begin to use the more bioavailable zinc citronate over the current zinc glycinate and zinc amino acid chelate.
Green Coffee Bean and Heart Health
As well as the benefits associated with its fat loss abilities, green coffee bean extract also improves the functioning of the cells lining your blood vessels. This has direct implications for heart health, reducing risk of high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries and stroke. A study conducted in Japan found a significant increase in endothelial function after only one dose of the green coffee bean extract, compared to placebo.
Lose fat and protect your heart. It seems like green coffee bean extract can do it all. Perhaps soon, we'll see more health supplements containing green coffee bean extract rather than just seeing them in fat burners and fat loss proteins. Remember, it's the chlorogenic acid in the extract that is considered to be the active component and not the caffeine. In fact, Green Coffee Bean extract has minimal amounts of caffeine.
