There are many things to think about when you want to add something to your diet to help you to lose weight. How will it be beneficial to you? How do they actually work? Here are a few of the most popular choices and how they can help you to achieve your goal.

Garcinia Cambogia

is a pill that can help you to lose weight. This diet supplement works in two different ways; It prevents fat from being made and it suppresses your appetite. That's why it works exceptionally well if you are an emotional eater. This pill actually raises the level of serotonin in your body which makes you much happier and less likely to eat more. It has been proven and published in the Current Therapeutic Research¨ journal, and also in The Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism Journal that

Green Coffee Bean Extract

works great in many different ways. There is a significant decrease in Subcutaneous Fat, Visceral fat and Total Fat Area. The studies also show how a new component of 60% Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA) is important to making this one of the fastest and best diet supplement. On the other side of the spectrum there is a great organic choice.

Yacon Syrup

is completely different, but works just as well to eliminate fat. They key ingredient other than the vegetable (found in South America) is Fructooligosaccharide (FOS). This addition to Yacon syrup or powder acts like a prebiotic that helps control certain bacteria found in your intestines; it slows down your metabolism naturally by helping bacteria to transform into short-chain fatty acids. These enhance tissue sensitivity to insulin which means that it helps to regulate insulin levels therefore stopping the food cravings. Another added benefit is that it also helps with your immune system and is a great anti-inflammatory.

Purpose and Mission

The Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation is an independent Federal government agency established to "encourage and support research, study and labor designed to produce new discoveries in all fields of endeavor for the benefit of mankind." Governed by a Presidential appointed Board of Trustees, the Foundation seeks to nurture and recognize pioneering individuals and programs which reflect the visionary spirit and pioneering heritage of Christopher Columbus.

History of the Christopher Columbus Foundation and its Funding

In 1992 Americans celebrated the 500th anniversary of the discovery of the Americas, and the United States Congress joined in the commemoration by passing Public Law 102-281, the Christopher Columbus Quincentenary Coins and Fellowship Foundation. The initial funding for the Christopher Columbus Foundation was derived from the sale of three denominations of specially minted coins sold by the United States Mint from August 1992-June 1993. The coin sales surcharges constituted the Foundation's endowment thus establishing a living legacy of explorer Christopher Columbus.
