What Is Missing From Almost All Weight Loss Supplements Could Be What Is Keeping You From Losing Weight.

There are a lot of weight loss products on the market but there’s one ingredient that many neglect. And that ingredient just may be the most critical when it comes to successfully shedding those pounds.
I’m talking about the digestive enzyme Lipase.

Lipase is an enzyme secreted by the pancreas into the small intestines. Once in the intestines, it breaks down lipids (fats) and triglycerides, which are fatty substances in the body that come from fat in the diet, into smaller fatty acids that can be easily absorbed and used by the body.

One recent study has found that 100% of obese people have a lipase deficiency. What this means to the body is that if you can’t properly break down fats to use as fuel through healthy metabolism, then the fat gets stored in the body as extra weight.

Without lipase, fat accumulates and can see it on your hips, thighs, buttocks and the stomach.

Lack of lipase also inhibits the absorption of nutrients. When the body is lacking nutrients, it creates a craving for more food to satisfy this deficiency.
Supplementing lipase in a weight loss product can greatly improve digestion and metabolism of fats. This can lead to increased energy, satisfaction from eating, stopping cravings, and a reduction in weight.

As a terrific side benefit, lipase has also been found helpful in lowering cholesterol by decreasing fat deposits.

If you are looking to lose weight, adding a weight loss supplement that contains lipase can greatly increase your chance of burning off those stubborn pounds. Look for a product that contains natural ingredients and is free of harsh stimulants like ephedra, also known as mua huang which can increase blood pressure and cause anxiety and restlessness.

Weight loss supplements should always be used as part of a weight loss program that includes a balanced diet of nutritious foods and moderate exercise. It is also wise to see your physician or naturopathic doctor before starting a weight loss program.
