While most of the claims for weight loss with other supplements tend to be over hyped there are actually some supplements that can help you lose weight.

So you're interesting in using Magnesium Citrate?
Maybe you've heard that Magnesium can help with weight loss, or maybe you found out that your serum levels are low.

Up to 40-50% of the population in the US is deficient in vitamin B12.
That number gets even worse if you have hypothyroidism (up to 50% of these patients have B12 deficiency).
It gets even more important when you realize that vitamin B12 is vital for cellular energy production and detoxification systems via the glutathione pathway.
What you may not realize is that many simple over the counter medications may be blocking your ability to absorb vitamin B12.
I'm talking about acid blockers, H2 blockers and even non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications.
Because of this it is very important to understand if you are deficient and to replace your levels if you are.
There are some nuances to replacement which make sublingual B12 and vitamin B12 shots superior to other forms of B12 which we will talk about below:Continue reading

Can magnesium citrate actually help you lose weight?
This is a question I get from a lot of patients...
And I have some news for you:
Weight loss is far more complicated than just taking 1 pill or 1 supplement.
And we are going to talk about that, but let's back back to your main question:
Yes, Magnesium citrate may actually help with weight loss.
But that's not really what you want.
It may help you lose water weight and/or stool weight, but it won't help your body burn fat mass.
And that's really what everyone wants when they say they want to "lose weight".
They are interested in losing FAT.
So let's talk about how Magnesium citrate in combination with other therapies create an environment where your body can become a fat burning machine...Continue reading
