As an acupuncturist, I treat a lot of patients for weight loss. One of the first things I ask my patients to do is take Vitamin B6.
Your Liver is in charge of metabolizing fats. Not only dietary fat, but all types of fat, including hormones. Vitamin B6 is essential to break down larger lipid molecules into smaller fatty acids, which can then be excteted or used for other bodily functions.
B6 is a cheap supplement, usually around $5. It is water soluble, meaning that your body will use what it needs, then excrete the rest through the urine. It does not build up in the body. Although everyone may need different doses under the guidance of their practitioner, I usually reccomend my patients to take 100mg with each meal, so three times daily. Make sure to source it naturally and stay away from a synthetic version.
I lost over 10 lbs. in 3 months with the only change in my day was adding Vitamin B6. Watch out Dr. Oz, I have a real supplement for you, which has years more research than green coffee bean or raspberry ketones!
Have a peaceful day!
