"Here are my top 7 herbs for weight loss... lose those extra 10 pounds fast"
It is spring and summer is right around the corner... and it's time to lose that extra 10 pounds.
Devils Backbone - Studies with Devils Backbone over eight weeks showed increased weight loss compared to the normal group. In fact, they lost 187% more weight than the placebo group. Devil's Backbone works by blocking cortisol from interfering with fat loss... and when we are stressed we produce lots of cortisol which is a stress hormone.
Because Devils Backbone helps with fat loss, but it's also been used by bodybuilders to increase fat loss and increase lean muscle mass. Some feel it's a good stress compound that also helps as a good anabolic agent to build lean muscle mass. Some also use Devil's Backbone in conjunction with green tea and chromium for bodybuilding. And studies show that because Devils Backbone increases calcium absorption it helps with osteoporosis.
