If you’ve ever been on a weight loss journey, you know how much commitment it requires. You also understand that failure generally means, there’s no one else to blame but you…

Or, could it be that you’re just missing some steps in your journey? Sure, consistent exercise and a healthy diet are key, but not all bodies are the same. While someone may achieve a goal weight and body shape by simply following a strict diet and exercise plan, it may not work for someone else.

Other people may need the assistance of supplements, along with their diet and exercise.

Why Supplements?

Take a moment to think about your problem area while dieting and exercising? Which area tends to stay the same, even though the rest of you has gotten in shape? If your answer is the belly area (usually lower belly), then know you’re not alone. This is one of the most stubborn areas of your body when it comes to weight loss --- especially if you’ve dropped 20 or more pounds. Fat loves to concentrate in this region, and getting it to move out permanently is a struggle. But, it’s not impossible.

Hello, gut health! When we gain weight, fat stores in the lower belly area. And if there’s a high concentration of it, diet and exercise may not be enough to get rid of it completely.

You have to literally clean it out. The way to do this is by targeting your gut. The reason these fats enjoy concentrating in our lower belly areas is due to bacteria that accumulates in the gut and provides support to the belly fat.

So, the question is, how do we clean our gut out and put an end to that stubborn belly fat?

The best options are anti-inflammatory supplements. Some of the most effective ones (and most popular) are probiotic, ginger, and fish oil capsules.

How Does It Work?

The main reason why bad gut health and stubborn belly fat work hand-in-hand is because they both thrive in inflammation-rich environments. Therefore, you need anti-inflammatory supplements.

Probiotics

Probiotics are made up of good bacteria that helps keep your body healthy and working efficiently. This good bacteria helps you in many ways, including fighting off bad bacteria when you have too much of it, while helping you feel better. Essentially it keeps the balance in your gut and prevents the bad bacteria from taking over.

Ginger

Ginger is key for proper digestion. It especially helps with the proper digestion of fats, so they don’t get too comfy in your belly. It also decreases gas production, and helps digest protein and bile by stimulating hydrochloric acid.

Fish Oil

Fish oil is oil derived from the tissues of oily fish. Fish oils contain the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid, which can help reduce inflammation in the body. Plus, they also help probiotics work better when taken together.

If you have been having issues losing stubborn belly fat, pick your favorite anti-inflammatory supplements and watch the belly fat finally pack its bags!

BONUS: You’ll also notice an increase in energy levels, and immunity. People usually look past gut health, but it’s a true epicenter of your overall health. And of course, the secret ingredient to eliminate that pooch!
