As we all know, it is tough to lose fat. Fat
loss is not to be confused with “weight”
loss. Anybody who has tried knows that it is
much less difficult to lose muscle or water
weight. We also know that muscle is not what
we want to lose. The key to healthy weight
loss is to reduce fat in the body while
protecting healthy muscle and water levels.
When anybody discusses fat loss, the
conversation generally steers towards
caffeine/stimulant based thermogenics,
appetite suppressants or diuretics. However,
another option is available.
Thyroid hormones control metabolic rate.
When metabolic rate slows down, which
sometimes occurs when a person diets, the
body burns fewer calories each day. The body
senses a phase of calorie deficiency and it
slows/stops the conversion of thyroid
hormone T4 into a more active T3 form. T3
plays a role in accelerating metabolism,
leading to a slower rate at which the body
Guggul may change thyroid hormone
metabolism due to the increased conversion
of the inactive thyroid hormone T4 into its
active part T3 in the liver. This process
increases levels of circulating T3, a
thyroxine metabolite known to raise overall
metabolism. Moreover, guggulsterones may
also stimulate the thyroid directly by
enhancing TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone)
Maintaining a high thyroid output creates
a strong thermogenic (fat burning)
metabolism. The result is the body burns
more calories, and fat loss increases. Is
this some sort of magic pill? Of course not.
Diet and exercise are important for any
successful weight loss. Guggul works to help
reach that goal by increasing the body’s
metabolism that dieting may have slowed
down. It is a natural thermogenic
alternative to harsher stimulant products.
