Women's Supplements for Weight Loss
5 ways supplements can kickstart and help you lose weight fast and effectively.
1. Protein Makes You Less Hungry:
Protein has so many wonderful effects on the body, but if you're looking to lose weight, protein intake should be your focus. Not only are you burning more calories just by processing protein, you're also sending signals to your body to suppress your hunger hormones causing you to consume less. What should your protein intake be? 25-35% of your total calorie intake.

Pro Tip: Your calorie intake can either be calculating your BMR or taking your goal weight and multiplying by 12. (150 lbs. x 12= 1800 calories/day)
2. Pre-Workout Aids Fat Loss and Preserves Muscle Mass
STAMINA, our pre-workout formula contains beta-alanine which helps develop carnosine in your body and combat the excess hydrogen created during exercise. In combination with intense cardio, beta-alanine not only aids in fat loss due to an increase in the ability to workout longer, but studies show it helps keep your muscle mass that can be lost during cutting periods. STAMINA contains beta-alanine to help us push through our workouts, but also caffeine to give us that energy we need to get up and get going.

3. Magnesium for Digestive Health & Less Bloat
Shape magazine states, "a 2013 study in the Journal of Nutrition found that higher magnesium intake was associated with lower levels of fasting glucose and insulin (markers related to fat and weight gain), and one study from England found that a magnesium supplement may have some beneficial effects on reducing fluid retention during the menstrual cycle, meaning you’ll feel less bloated." Magnesium also helps the intestines release water in order to soften stool, reduce bloating, and also relieve heartburn, constipation, and irregularity. A healthy digestive tract hasn't been proven to cause weight loss, but it can cause weight gain.

4. Vitamin D Keeps Hunger Cravings Down
Vitamin D is important in almost every single process in the body, but over 70% of the population is deficient in it! According o=to this article from Women's Health, "special receptors for D signal whether you should burn fat or simply store it; when D plugs into these receptors, it's like a key that revs your body's flab-melting mechanism." If you're getting your Vitamin D, you're getting your body out of a fat storage state and into a fat-burning state, which could speed up weight loss by 70%!

5. BCAAs Reduce Fatigue and Regulate Blood Sugar
One of the main jobs of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) is to reduce muscle soreness and fatigue by repairing muscles faster. If doing this, it allows you to workout more often leading to and increase in weight loss when combined with a healthy diet. Deeper into this weight loss, research suggests that BCAAs leucine and isoleucine are thought to increase insulin secretion. This increase in insulin secretion uses more sugar from your blood stream, reducing blood sugar levels overall.
