Weight loss, fighting with your waist line, has to be one of the most frustrating challenges for most of us. Especially after the holidays!

There is no magic potion or pill that will melt away the fat

Proper diet exercise (its more what you eat than exercise, which will make most of us happy) are the best ways to lose weight safely. However, you can improve your results by adding supplement to help your bio-chemistry balance so that any weight loss program will work at maximum benefit.

RELATED: RECOMMENDED PLANS FOR YOU

Did you know that there are minerals that help you lose weight and maximize your health program?

If you think that weight loss is just about food and exercise, then I have news for you: it’s not! 

Not everyone needs to lose weight but all of us need the right minerals in our daily routine to promote optimal health.

How to lose weight safely?

The minerals I am sharing with you today will help you with weight loss and even help you with other issues.

Chromium

Chromium is one of the top minerals that help you lose weight.

It balances your blood sugar, reduces the rate of the rise and fall of insulin, changes how the body stores carbohydrates, and influences how hungry you are.

This overlooked trace mineral may be the secret to shedding pounds, according to a new research conducted by the University of Vermont.

Yale researchers found that chromium is effective in helping diabetics manage their glucose levels.

And according to the researchers at the University of Vermont, supplementing diets with chromium helped dieters not only lose pounds, it helped eliminate unsightly, excess belly fat, as well.

Chromium helps fight cravings for carbohydrate-dense foods and sugar-filled snacks by promoting balanced blood sugar levels throughout the day. It is interesting that eating foods high in sugar not only increases your chances of becoming overweight due to calorie consumption.

It also accelerates the depletion of chromium by 300%.

It is a derivative of pyridine with a carboxylic acid substituent at the 2-position. It is an isomer of nicotinic acid, which has the carboxyl side chain at the 3-position. Wikipedia), in the compound that is difficult for the body to break down.

With the liquid form you get the Chromium you need.

To get the most out of your chromium supplement, eat a diet low in sugar, lots of veggies, lean meats and healthy fats. Eating healthy not only helps you lose weight, it makes you feel better.

So, if you want to speed up your weight loss, add chromium to your diet.

Magnesium

Magnesium is a mineral that is important for the nervous system, blood sugar, blood pressure, bones and digestive tract, to name a few.

Magnesium is responsible for hundreds of chemical reactions in the body.

Magnesium is the miracle mineral due to its ability to help you sleep, reduce anxiety, get rid of hoer headaches, lower blood sugar, lower blood pressure, balance hormones and so much more.

It can help relieve sore muscles after exercising (part of the weight loss program), improve your energy levels and relax your gastrointestinal tract which is the first thing to be upset when you are stressed.

Zinc

Most of us think of the flu or colds when we think of this powerful mineral. What most don’t know is that zinc promotes hormonal balance in the body, especially testosterone.

It is important for women nearing menopause when their body produces less hormones.

The depletion case lead to weight gain for most women, and some men.

Zinc also helps protein production and assists with enzyme regulation. It even acts as a neurotransmitter, helping your body communicate appropriately, and of course, it helps keep your immune system working efficiently.

By balancing your mood and increasing your libido, zinc supplementation can lead to weight loss.

All of us have heard, at one time or another, that calcium is important to weight loss.

Well, here’s why: it fights fat and calms your nerves. Calcium is vital for bone maintenance in the body and you need a stong skeletal system for a healthy metabolism.

Sulfur

Sulfur is the purifying mineral that detoxifies our body and keeps all of our joints lubricated. Sulfur helps keep our liver functioning properly which aids in boosting your metabolism and fight weight gain.

Selenium

Selenium is known for its cancer fighting properties but did you know that it is necessary for good thyroid function? Many people with slow weight loss will benefit from taking selenium.

Selenium will provide more energy, reduce stress and boost your metabolism.

Potassium

Potassium is a powerful mineral we all need to be consuming, but is also very important for weight management and loss. Potassium is what keeps you from being bloated, helps fight that puffy feeling, and aids in proper muscle contraction.

Sodium

What? You say sodium can help you lose weight?

Doesn’t it cause bloating and weight gain? Well, only if you are thinking table salt which is actually a compound, sodium chloride. If you get elemental sodium from the right sources, it is essential to your body.

You need it for a healthy metabolism, energy, and it is needed for fluid balance, nerve contraction, and muscle coordination.

Try supplementing your healthy diet, exercise and hydration routine with minerals and I am sure you will be amazed at how much better you feel!
