Top 7 weight loss supplements we must have


Top 7 weight loss supplements we must have

Let’s admit, we get impatient sometimes and depressed a lot of times during our weight loss journey. We need all the motivation to help us keep going.  I have faced plateaus when I don’t shed a gram, although I sweat my life out! Then, the churning wheels of my brain go cranky 😛 The majority of the times when I have faced this situation and I go for checkups, I get to know I have messed up with something or the other. You see, our bodies are really complex. We need more if we sweat more, it’s as simple as that!

Last time I remember when my weight loss stopped, I realized I was anemic and then I gained weight more than the speed of rocket 🙁 So when trying to lose weight, you should never miss out on the nutrients your body needs!

Below are the best 7 weight loss supplements which I feel help and are a must to have. No, I am not talking about any magical pills that people claim to have used and they shed some 30 kgs of weight and 20 years of life :P. I don’t believe in them!

So, Let’s talk about Top 7 Weight Loss Supplements everyone must try.

top 7 weight loss supplements 

  1. Omega -3 fish oil capsules –

If you are a strict veggie, give it a skip. One of my doctor friends said many people are deficient in Omega -3. Omega-3 causes fat burning.

2. Vitamin B –

These help in increasing metabolism, promoting cell growth, and healthy skin. Must have!

3. Multi-Vitamin –

The body’s efficiency to burn fat increases when you take a multivitamin. You need more multivitamins if your lifestyle is active. This helps a lot in burning belly fat. If your multivitamin supplement has enough Vitamin B, you can skip the latter.

4. Probiotics –

We have already discussed probiotics and our gut here. Probiotics are important for our immune system and healthy digestion. Since we have so much pesticide in veggies and fruits, the probiotics that we receive from them is not sufficient. Yakult is one easily available probiotic, I will write more about it soon. Curd is rich in probiotics and it is yummy too :). Try having curd, 2 small bowls with meals every day.

5. Protein powder – Protein powder is available in various varieties – soy, whey, etc. Whey is so far the most popular protein supplement. I found whey protein to be the most effective for me. Soy is not good for health, read here. While whey protein is one of the products from cheese manufacturing protein. Cheese is rich in protein. Whey proteins contain all the amino acids. This helps to do the following.

  • to improve our gut flora

  • to strengthen and repair muscles which is much needed when you work out

  • to improve metabolic rate and fat burning.

6. Green Tea / Chamomile tea – Rich in antioxidants, these boosts our immune system and makes us burn fat. Now it’s not mandatory to have green tea hot. I am not kidding :P. I take green tea in my water sipper to the gym and it works great. Gives me the energy I need in the gym! Chamomile tea is also a good option. It also rich in antioxidants and relaxes our bodies. You can have it at night too!

7. Fiber supplement – This is not very popular amongst common people. I know of a few sportspeople who take a fiber supplement. Fiber is extremely important for cleansing your body. It is said that we need 30-40 gms of fiber a day. I have not tried any fiber supplements to date. Have you?

That was my list of top 7 weight loss supplements, Are you using any other? Do share with us.


  1. ri8 now iam using fiber supplements and probiotics, my primary doc suggested, i usually drink 8-10 litres of water in a day, so i increased my weight, doctor said that water getting retained in body, by using this supplements i vl reduce my weight as well as water it seems, started just 3 days back

  2. I have had the fish capsules and it gave lot of glow to my skin …although don remember about any weight loss as such may be I should start continuing with it again 🙂

  3. Thanks Gowthami. I am glad the post made you comment :).
    Which protein powder are you using ? M hunting for one.

  4. Yeah. Fish capsule is too good for skin ! I just have difficulty in swallowing it. But can’t help na. My iron tabs are also not veggie, what to do , i need them !

  5. lovely post, very useful one, when i started taking fish capsules, my skin broke out horribly, I mean that was a disaster which i will never forget, my skin got totally all right when I stopped taaking those, now for omega 3 fatty acids, i have started taking walnuts, pista and all , where can i get whey protein???? any brand name can u suggest?

  6. Taps, for oily skinned beauties, fish capsules do cause breakouts. I was taking herbalife last year, it did help me a lot. Will start again.
    Biotrust nutrition is a very good brand with no sugar added. I am planning to get one from them. When you select a protein, make sure it has no additives n sugar.

  7. Na Taps. We need to import it 🙁
    I will let you know when I place the order. I am checking with them if they parcel to India,

  8. Very nice post Tarun..!! I have started taking green tea and White tea last 6 month and i observe weight loss 😛 Omega 3 fish oil good for dry combination skin kya ??

  9. Yes Sravanthi, you are right :). Fish is a staple food for Bengalis. Have you noticed how beatuful hair n skin Bengali gals have 🙂

  10. Sushmita, thanks and welcome here 🙂 .
    I am glad that I am getting to see new faces here 🙂 . Fish oil may suit oily skinned ppl if it doesn’t cause breakouts. For any other skin type, generally there is no problem faced. Dry combi skin should not have any problems.

  11. Janavi , weight loss can be done with diet and exercise. I cannot give you recommendations only on the basis that you wish to lose weight. I need to know what you eat, do you have medical ailments, how much you weigh, how much physical activity you have etc etc.
