My 10 favourite Vitamins, Minerals and other beneficial remedies to assist you in losing weight


When I turned forty, it seemed to me that I gained weight just by looking at food. Now that of course, is not true, but it feels like it. The following vitamins, minerals and herbal remedies can really help you to lose weight.

  • Vitamin B6

A vitamin B6 deficiency is common amongst insulin resistant and diabetic patients. Vitamin B6 can reduce insulin resistance and boost the immune system.

  • Vitamin C

A vitamin C deficiency will enhance insulin resistance – more vitamin C will improve insulin resistance and can be beneficial in weight loss.

  • Vitamin D

Vitamin D regulates insulin secretion and sensitivity and balances blood sugar.

  • Vitamin E

Vitamin E will reduce insulin needs. It is also a heart protector and keeps blood thin.

  • Chromium

Chromium will reduce insulin resistance. Low chromium levels are common in a high refined carbohydrate and high sugar diet. If you combine chromium with vitamin B3 – chromium efficacy improves. High chromium doses like 400-1000 microgram prove to be beneficial, the effect of which kicks in after 4 months – do it for 12 months and then reduce dosage.

  • Fiber

It is a common problem in insulin resistant patients that blood glucose rise sharply after a meal.  The inclusion of more complex carbohydrates reduces this effect.

  • Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha Lipoic Acid can improve insulin sensitivity in patients with pre-diabetes and type-2 diabetes. Alpha Lipoic Acid prevents the development of glucose-induced insulin resistance in 3T3-L1 adipocytes and accelerates the decline in immunoreactive insulin during cell incubation in humans. Alpha Lipoic Acid prevents hypertension, hyperglycemia, and the increase in heart mitochondrial superoxide production in rats.

  • Progesterone

Check levels – breast feeding mothers lose weight fast because progesterone levels are high.

  • Probiotics

Gut bacteria helps to balance hormones. Dysbiotic bacteria produce amines, indoles and phenols and they are all toxic. They can interfere with neurotransmission and other hormone signals.   Keeping your gut healthy does not only support your immune system, protect your gut lining but also helps to balance your hormones.  Altered bowel ecology will enhance catabolic maladaptation.

New research claims that there is a huge difference between GUT flora of thin and fat people.  These GUT bacteria boost the thin persons digestion more than the fat person by extracting nutrients from undigested food (they also eat your food). By boosting or supplementing with GUT flora you can fight obesity because of better digestion of undigested food.

  • Bitter melon

Decrease insulin resistance and reduces adiposity.
