Vitamins are not the first thing that comes to our minds when thinking of fat loss. People now a day tend to think more in terms of counting calories, proteins, fats, and carbs; disregarding all the other factors that might be affecting their diets and weight loss process.

In this piece, we will not only break the misconception of vitamins and supplements for fat loss; but also introduce you to some of the best vitamins and supplements that will change your relationship with your body forever.  

There are 13 basic vitamins, including vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K, and others, that not only aid in functioning properly, but are in fact ESSENTIAL for fat loss, digestion, breaking down the food, growing, and developing.

Ultimately, the ideal approach to meet your vitamin needs is to eat a balanced diet that includes a variety of healthy organic foods. However, this is way too unrealistic!  With all the toxins and hormones injected into our foods, even the ones that claim to be organic.

Luckily, we have highly equipped pharmaceutical companies developing daily to give us all the vitamins our body needs in terms of standalone supplements or in a good source of multivitamins.

With no further due, here are the 5 most important dietary supplements that your body needs for optimal fat loss and performance, so take notes:

Note: Since every human body is different from the other, I strongly recommend that you seek medical advice before starting to take any of those supplements.

1. Magnesium:

It plays a very important role in reducing stress, and thus promoting fat loss, given that too much stress leads to fat gain. When taken properly in terms of food or a standalone supplement, it can reduce sugar craving, insomnia, and aids in reducing menstrual pain. Just avoid the ones with large amounts of magnesium oxide as the body doesn't absorb it well.

2. Zinc:

It is essential for breaking down the food properly and its absorption. It aids in digestion, fat loss and muscle building.

3. Vitamin D3:

A lot of women recently have been suffering from vitamin D deficiency. Which can be produced effectively under the exposure to the UltraViolet rays through Sunlight.  This can massively affect their metabolism and performance in a negative way. For optimal results, take a Vitamin D blood test and consult your doctor about the needed dosage in case of deficiency.

4. Omega 3:

It can be mainly found in high-quality fish oils and some seeds such as chia seeds and flax seeds. Proper supplementation of Omega 3 aids in fat loss, antiinflammation, insulin sensitivity, and joints pain.

5. Vitamin B Complex:

A Vitamin B complex mainly includes B6, B9, and B12. They are essential for energy production, fat loss, and detoxification.
