Two Top Belly-Blasting Supplements


www.ironmanmagazine.comDaytime TV is pretty much a crapfest for the most part during the week. Granted, that’s a male perspective, but even with satellite service and a gazillion channels, there’s still “nothing on.” Every so often, however, I go to the program guide and check out what Dr. Oz is covering on his show. It can be very interesting, especially when he’s discussing supplements.

Now, Dr. Oz isn’t always right—even he admits that—but I happened to record his show on over-the-counter fat-loss aides and found it to be right on, especially his top two belly blasters.

7-keto is a natural by-product of DHEA, a youth-enhancing hormone that decreases as we age. The reduction begins at around age 30 and accelerates. A loss of 7-keto slows your metabolism and promotes fat gain, so supplementing with it “raises your metabolic set point [so] your body’s engines can begin burning faster, resulting in less weight gain and a trimmer belly, especially when combined with diet and exercise.” Dr. Oz suggests 200 milligrams a day, 100 in the morning and the other 100 at night.

Forskolin is an herb from the mint family that has been shown in research to help promote the breakdown of stored fat. We’ve also reported here in IM on studies showing that forskolin can raise testosterone, which could be one of the reasons it helps in fat reduction. Dr. Oz says that “it may also release fatty acids from adipose tissue, which results in increased thermogenesis.” He suggests 125 milligrams in the morning of 20 percent forskolin—be sure it’s 20 percent potency.

As for daytime TV, watching too much can make you fat—and those supplements won’t do much unless you hit the gym or at least take a walk.
