INGREDIENTS Conjugated linoleic acid CLA is an omega-6 polyunsaturated essential fatty acid (EFA) which is formed from linoleic acid in bacterium via a specific isomerase (a type of enzyme). This EFA is a mixture of positional and geometric isomers of linoleic acid. It is naturally occurring in meat and dairy products. In addition to reducing fat in the body, CLA has also been studied for its anticarcinogenic (anti-cancer) properties. Right now, CLA is of very high interest to scientists and nutritionists. CLA has been quickly growing in popularity in the fitness world. Since its popularity is still relatively new, many people still have never heard of CLA. It is sold at almost all nutrition stores, and it is highly advertised on the Internet. Many competitive weightlifters and fitness performers have started taking this product and speak positively of its effects. Garcinia CambogiaAmPm-StrawbBanana_nutritional label Why does it have scientists and media buzzing? The most exciting new product in natural weight loss is finally here! The revolutionary Garcinia Cambogia breakthrough (also known as brindleberry) is extracted from a pumpkin shaped fruit growing in South East Asia and India. Weight loss is naturally achieved through the key ingredient of Garcinia Cambogia known as HCA (Hydroxycitric Acid), working as a dual action fat buster! It stops fat from being made, while suppressing your appetite, without any major changes to diet and lifestyle. Garcinia Cambogia has been shown to support weightloss by preventing the conversion of energy into fat deposits and helps burn stored fat by breaking down there protective proteins. Acetyl Carnitine An acetylated version of Carnitine base helps supply the brain with energy by improving energetics in the mitochondrion, the cell’s energy generator. Acetyl-L-Carnitine is said to alleviate the effects of aging and disease on mitochondria, while increasing the mitochondria’s potential to burn fat. Acetyl-L-Carnitine (which is reported to be the most effective form of carnitine) has been shown in clinical studies to benefit cognitive ability, memory and mood, however it’s major benefit for those involved in weight training and exercise is that it allows the body to use stored fat for energy more easily, which is somewhat supported in research. Acetyl Carnitine has been shown to assist in lowering blood glucose and improve blood vessel health, this is particularly so for those with weakened cardiac systems. Dandelion Root Besides the nutrients found in dandelion, there are also phytochemicals that are responsible for most of the medicinal effects of the herb. Some of these phytochemicals are taraxacin (taraxinic acid), taraxasterol, beta sitosterol, caffeic acid, pectin, inulin and alkaloids. For example, the taraxinic acid found in dandelion leaves are responsible the diuretic property of the herb as well as some of detoxifying effects. Other potential medicinal benefits of dandelion include laxative, appetite stimulant, digestive aid, immunostimulant and cholagogue (stimulate bile secretion). Most of these effects are only studied in animal models and human studies are still pending. However, the diuretic effect of dandelion is well studied in humans. By increasing the volume and frequency of urination, dandelion is often used to shed water weight and also to reduce blood pressure. This is the most common use of dandelion in traditional medicine. Inositol When consumed in combination with other B complex vitamins, inositol helps your liver break down fats in the body, which is how it got its reputation for aiding weight loss. When taken in combination with choline, inositol forms lecithin and lecithin is known to fight fat. It is also a lipotropic agent, so inositol also might redistribute existing body fat during weight loss. When taken before bedtime, theoretically it might help your body burn fat while you sleep. Choline Bitrate Research shows that using Choline to lose weight can improve results as part of a complete weight loss program including diet and exercise. While it may not be the strongest weight loss supplement on the market, the natural mechanism of action that this nutrient uses means that it comes with none of the side effects typical of diet pills. Choline promotes a faster rate of lipolysis meaning that you burn more fat than you would at your typical metabolic rate. It does this by promoting the transportation of dietary fats throughout the body to your cells so they are promptly burned for energy. This can help to prevent future weight gain while also contributing to steady and reliable weight loss results. Bitter Melon Bitter melon looks like an exceptionally warty cucumber and is commonly used in traditional Asian cuisine. It’s rich in a wide variety of nutrients including calcium, potassium, iron, fiber, beta-carotene, phosphorus, vitamin C, and vitamins B1-3. Bitter melon has been shown in a number of studies to increase glucose tolerance by preventing the absorption of sugar as well as increasing the number of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas called beta cells. Bitter melon also contains blood sugar-lowering compounds that rival those found in prescription drugs. With its insulin-like functions and sugar-blocking capabilities, bitter melon can be used to balance blood sugar levels, making it easier to lose weight. Losing weight also causes insulin-resistant cells to regain sensitivity, further promoting blood sugar balance. Raspberry Ketones Naturally occurring phenolic compound found in red raspberries. They have been shown in lab tests to breakdown fats and specifically lower abdominal fat in test subjects. Methionine One important fat-burning hormone is the growth hormone (somatotropin, STH). We produce this hormone while we sleep. It stimulates protein synthesis and boosts fat oxidation. Overweight patients generally have lower STH concentrations, which often hinders weight reduction.1 Unfortunately, the growth hormone is very expensive (approximately GBP 400–650 for a monthly ration) and must be injected under close and competent medical supervision. It is thus safer to simulate our bodies to secrete this hormone naturally. Certain amino acids have been shown to do this in many cases if sufficient quantities are taken on an empty stomach at night.
