Nutritionists have long agreed on the idea that weight loss is possible only one way: the calories (that is, energy) that come with food should be less or equal to the energy costs of the body. In other words, or need less to eat, or more to move. There is no third. However, a person is lazy in nature, therefore, every time when tempting advertising promises "harmony without effort," there are those who believe in it. One of such miraculous means are capsules for weight loss "Spirulina". Is it possible to believe advertising?
Diet pills "Spirulina"
Another miracle remedy is created from algae bluish-green, which grows in alkaline lakes, which are in Mexico, Africa and China. It has an amazing nature - it is both a plant and a bacterium at the same time. However, in our days already there are whole spirulina farms, where it is grown in artificial ponds. It grows very quickly, and one small lake is enough to feed about 50,000 people.
In the Chinese diet pills "Spirulina" is actually just pressed dried seaweed. It is 70% vegetable protein, which is easily absorbed by the human body. In addition, it contains about 2000 different active substances - amino acids, vitamins, enzymes, minerals. Among them the following are particularly distinguished:
- glycogen , which as soon as possible supplies the body with energy;
- tyrosine, which prolongs youth;
- cystine, which is involved in the regulation of pancreatic function;
- Arginine, which removes toxins from the blood;
- thiamine, which promotes the health of the nervous system;
- phycocyanin, which is a powerful antioxidant and helps fight cancer cells, and is an excellent prevention of their appearance.
As a result, we see that "Spirulina Tianshi" for weight loss, like other similar tablets, can really bring some benefit. That's just all of it is not directly related to weight loss.
Advertising says that in 20 days without the slightest effort you can lose weight by 5-15 kilograms, and for 40 days almost completely get rid of all fat deposits in the abdomen and thighs. But in fact, alga spirulina for weight loss can have a maximum auxiliary result. Its composition shows that it can somewhat affect the metabolism, stabilize blood sugar, which can somewhat reduce the extra appetite. However, if a person eats sweets every day, he will not get this effect.
Spirulina can help those who have problems with the thyroid gland and serious metabolic disorders . However, this is a rare case. Most often, excess weight is the result of constant malnutrition, and if you eat as usual and take spirulina - nothing will change. And if you switch to proper nutrition, then you will lose weight and without any pills. Thus, the agent for weight loss spirulina - no more than one
How to take spirulina for weight loss?
It is very simple to apply spirulina: it is advised simply to drink two capsules on an empty stomach, with a glass of water. In this case, fasting is not recommended, and the only prescription is the advice to observe the drinking regime (8 glasses of water per day). Advertising means that the pill easily removes the feeling of hunger - but after all, the hunger leaves only when the stomach is filled. So, these words can not be true either.
Recent experiments, which were conducted in 2008 in China, have shown that this agent has virtually no effect on metabolism. In fact, the pills only stabilize blood pressure and blood sugar.
