The Thermogenic Effect of Fat-burning Nutrients

Written By  Go Vita

Get your body to burn more fat and kilojoules, while easily building muscle and supercharging your energy levels.

The old saying, “You are what you eat” is never truer than when it is applied to supercharging a sluggish metabolism, helping to lose weight and revving up your energy.


Your metabolism is strengthened with protein, and certain foods, notably ginger and chilli, help to increase metabolic activity. Amino acids like acetyl l-carnitine help to build muscle and lose weight, while coffee bean and green tea extracts help to corral fat and cholesterol.


Support your fat-burning nutrition program with a sensible strengthening regime, including stretching, high-intensity weight training to take weight off and low-intensity resistance training to build muscle. To add balance, try tai chi for increasing your range of motion and yoga to improve flexibility and stamina.

What is thermogenesis and how it can help in loss weight?

Thermogenesis is defined as the ‘thermic’, or heat, effect generated and expended in the body when you eat, digest, absorb food and eliminate waste. Thermogenesis can play a role in weight loss because it results in a higher expenditure of kilojoules and higher fat-burning, and can lead to ketosis. Ketosis is a normal metabolic state where, if carbohydrate intake is reduced, the body accesses its fat stores and burns glucose from triglycerides for energy rather than using blood sugar. This results in the formation of ketones, acids which are then eliminated in the urine. The popular Keto Diet works by giving the body a diet high in fat and protein and low in carbohydrates, which creates this metabolic state.

Can thermogenic nutritional supplements help with fat burning?

These supplements are effective in curbing appetite and improving metabolism, energy and fat-burning. They are particularly useful at reducing stubborn belly fat.

Can thermogenic nutritional supplements help with fat burning?

Pea and rice protein: These two plant-based protein sources form the ultimate protein combination for performance and recovery. Prana On Phyto Fire Protein is scientifically formulated to optimally fuel the process of muscle repair and growth.


Matcha green tea and green coffee bean extract: These create natural stimulation, via a slow-release, concentrated source of caffeine, but without the anxiety spike. When these two natural caffeine sources are ingested, norepinephrine and dopamine (the brain’s neurotransmitters) increase, leading to positive cognition changes, such as increasing focus and motivation.


Acetyl l-carnitine: This amino acid allows you to train for longer and therefore increase your kilojoule expenditure. Acetyl l-carnitine helps your body produce energy by utilising fat stores, ultimately aiding in fat loss.


Inositol: This is a type of sugar that works with insulin at a cellular level, where it has benefits for weight loss and hormone regulation. Inositol can treat leptin resistance, which is what creates stubborn body fat. Leptin is a hormone secreted from fat cells and when it is dysfunctional, it causes the body to hold onto fat. Inositol lowers leptin levels and keeps them lower after losing weight.


Choline: This nutrient plays an important role in controlling fat and cholesterol build-up in the body, which greatly helps metabolic health and fat-burning.


Lactospore™ Probiotic: Each serve of Prana On Phyto Fire contains a healthy 100,000 cfu of the probiotic Lactospore™ (Bacillus coagulans). This premium strand of healthy bacteria is protected from heat and allows your body to digest the probiotics all the way into your intestines where you need them most. It is well regarded for maintaining gut microbiome stability and diversity, and therefore keeping the gut healthy and happy.


Digezyme® digestive enzymes: Get ready to say goodbye to your bloat with this unique blend of five digestive enzymes - a-amylase, lipase, protease, cellulase and lactase. This combination of digestive enzymes is designed to assist with the digestion and absorption of nutrients; it will also help your body absorb all the potent nutrients from the healthful ingredients found in Power Plant, so you will feel your best every day.


Coconut MCT: MCT oil benefits those wanting to build muscle, by increasing the insulin spike created by a post-workout meal which in turn improves muscle development. Adding MCT oil to the protein mix is the perfect support for growing and strengthening muscle tissue, because it increases the macronutrient content for your muscles to absorb.


Monk fruit and stevia leaf extracts: Phyto Fire is lightly sweetened with naturally-derived monk fruit and stevia leaf extracts to enhance the deliciousness of all the natural flavours in the range.
