Dietary Supplements for Weight Loss
  • Green tea
  • White kidney bean
  • Ephedra
  • Yerba mate
  • Licorice root
  • Garcinia cambogia
  • Mangosteen
  • East Indian globe thistle

These are all dietary supplements that claim that they are able to aid for weight loss, however, apparently, they do not have enough evidence to support this claim.

Most of these are just soluble fibers and complex sugar products that manufacturers will claim to promote feelings of fullness or block fat absorption.

The fMRI employs a magnetic field to collect information about the body. It is one of the most prominent methods in neuroscience for studying the structure of the brain, including differences in the structural characteristics of different people's brains.

It works with a system that produces images of the brain's functions that indicates whether the activity of neurons is increased or decreased in specific parts of the brain and under which conditions.

We don't exercise, even if we know it is good for us

We all know exercise is good for us but we don't do it. A 2018 survey showed that 50 percent of adults and 73 percent of high school students report that they don't meet the minimum levels of physical activity.

Coffee beans are first softened in hot water or steam. Then caffeine is dissolved from the beans by using a solvent such as methylene chloride, ethyl acetate, or a gentler solvent such as water itself.

Liquid carbon dioxide is a much more expensive alternative, but has the added advantage that it does not remove the flavour molecules.
