Dr. Oz revealed thyroid boosters and fat burning supplements that work.

Dr. Oz discussed how you can boost thyroid function to boost weight loss and speed up your metabolism on a recent episode of the Dr. Oz Show.

“If you have unexplained weight loss, feel cold and exhausted, you may have a sluggish thyroid,” said Dr. Oz. “And it could be the cause of your biggest weight loss problems.”

The symptoms of a sluggish thyroid include:

  • unexplained weight gain
  • cold sensitivity.
  • fatigue
  • brittle hair, nails, and skin
  • constipation.

Doctors often fail to diagnose thyroid problems, but they’re shockingly common. Even simple blood tests could miss this disorder.

To combat a sluggish thyroid, you need to get enough zinc, selenium and iodine in your diet.

Foods rich in these minerals include the following:

  1. Brazil nuts. Brazil nuts are high in selenium, which boost the thyroid. Two nuts a day can improve a sluggish thyroid.
  2. Vitamin A. Vitamin A is a proven thyroid booster. Cantaloupes and sweet potatoes are rich in vitamin A, or you can take a daily supplement.
  3. Sunflower seeds. Sunflower seeds are an excellent source of selenium.
  4. Dulse flakes. Dulse flakes, which are made from seaweed, are high in iodine.
  5. Miso soup. Miso soup is high in zinc and enhances the thyroid-boosting properties of iodine.

You should also make sure you get enough vitamin D in your diet. Foods rich in vitamin D include salmon, eggs yolks, cheese, sardines, and beef liver.

Getting sunlight exposure is also helpful for proper thyroid function, so make sure you soak in a few minutes of vitamin D rays every day.

Fat-Burners That Boost Weight Loss and Curb Hunger

Dr. Oz suggested using the following fat-burning supplements to suppress appetite and enhance satiety:chromium weight loss

  • Konjac root powder. Konjac root (also known as glucomannan) is a gluten-free soluble fiber that contains no calories, starch, protein, fat, or sugar. Konjac powder induces a full feeling (so you can’t overeat) and has been shown to control blood-sugar levels, making it ideal for people with diabetes.
  • Chromium. Chromium is a mineral that has been shown to regulate blood sugar and insulin. “If you balance blood sugar, the weight loss is automatic,” said Dr. Oz.
  • Fat-blasting probiotic. The probiotic lactobacillus gasseri boosts metabolism, melts belly fat, reduces inflammation, and blocks fat production.
