Garcinia Cambogia is a small fruit that is native to Indonesia. Many cultures use this fruit to aid in weight loss, stomach ulcers, and digestive problems. The extract of this fruit is very helpful for weight loss. It is known to be a fat blocker, appetite suppressor, and metabolism booster, as well as lowering blood cholesterol, and improving immune function.
Coffee beans are originally green, before being roasted and sold to consumers. Green coffee beans are full of antioxidants and pharmacologically active compounds. Caffeine and chlorogenic acid are two of the most important active compounds in green coffee beans. Chlorogenic acid is believed to be the main ingredient that produces weight loss effects, but it is removed once the coffee is roasted. Because of this, regular coffee beans won't produce the same effect as green coffee beans.
Green tea is one of the most popular types of tea, loved for it's wonderful taste and plethora of health benefits. Not only does it pack a lot of caffeine, making it a great alternative to coffee, but it is also teeming with antioxidants that are called catechins that help support fat loss, immune function, and cardiovascular health. Elements of Nutrition stocks many different kinds of green tea, but for those who just want the benefits, we also have green tea extract supplements.
If you're planning to hit the gym, consider a protein powder to see the most results. Protein is used for the production of muscles. The best time to consume protein is right after a workout because it helps to heal the micro-tears you create in muscles while working out. Since food takes longer to digest and break down protein, it's faster to drink a protein shake, which will deliver the protein to your muscles within 30 minutes. Elements of Nutrition carries many different varieties of protein powder, so we have something for everyone!
