What Vitamins and Minerals Should I Take To Lose Weight?
Hunger is a major impediment to successful weight loss, leading to overeating and consuming too many calories. But hunger is about more than just calories—it’s about vitamins and minerals too.
Research increasingly shows that hunger is influenced not simply by the amount of calories consumed but also by nutrient intake, suggesting that nutrient intake is a key factor in successful weight loss.

a lower body weight compared with men who don’t take supplements, independent from physical activity level and dietary factors.2
