Pills That Burn Fat

Even if your diet and workout plan are in order, losing weight and burning stubborn fat can be a difficult task. Reshaping your body is all the more difficult when you have to juggle your family, friends, work and school. In many cases, taking a fat-burning supplement can help you stay on track.


Yohimbine is a fat-burning supplement that seems to specifically target abdominal fat. When you take yohimbine, it stimulates the release of chemicals in your body known as catecholamines. These catecholamines work to enhance fat loss. A study from the journal “Research in Sports Medicine” found that yohimbine supplementation led to reductions in body fat percentage and overall fat mass (See References 2).

Green Tea Extract

Another powerful natural supplement that comes in pill form is green tea extract. Green tea extract has many benefits, thanks to the antioxidants it contains. One of the benefits, according to the Journal of Nutrition, is enhancing the loss of abdominal fat. According to the researchers, green tea’s ingredients increase fat oxidation and energy expenditure. Green tea prevents your body from reducing levels of norepinephrine, a fat-burning hormone.

AllMax Nutrition RapidCuts Hardcore

AllMax Nutriton’s RapidCuts Hardcore pills combine quite a few ingredients to maximize fat-burning and control appetite. Ingredients include green tea extract, capsicum, white willow extract and caffeine. These pills also contain an anti-cortisol complex to offset any increased cortisol levels caused by caffeine. You should try to keep your cortisol levels down, as they can cause abdominal fat gain.

VPX Meltdown

VPX Meltdown is another supplement that contains a blend of ingredients to induce fat loss. Among its ingredients are yerba mate, yohimbine and caffeine. A study from the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition tested Meltdown and found that it significantly increased resting energy expenditure and fat oxidation for a few hours after each dose.

Nutrex Lipo 6 Black

Nutrex Lipo 6 Black is a potent fat-burning supplement that contains ingredients such as caffeine, yohimbine, and synephrine. The blend is designed to stimulate the metabolism and increase fat-burning.
