In response to mounting evidence that age-associated fat accumulation results from the loss of metabolic capacity to utilize ingested calories, this powdered drink mix has been formulated with these four key ingredients each individually shown to promote weight loss:
LuraLean® (propolmannan) – a proprietary fiber that swells in the stomach after ingestion with water to help reduce calorie consumption. It binds to bile acids in the small intestine and helps transport them out of the body. These bile acids otherwise facilitate the digestion and assimilation of dietary fat into the bloodstream. LuraLean® propolmannan also slows the rapid emptying of ingested food into the small intestine, reducing the surge of glucose entering the bloodstream. And LuraLean® works better than other fibers because its enzymes have been removed, sparing it from degradation in the digestive tract. This enables LuraLean® to form a stable viscous barrier to help impede calorie absorption and maintain its sponge-like activity throughout the digestive tract. In placebo-controlled studies, LuraLean® (propolmannan) induced moderate weight loss of up to 7.92 pounds on average in 8 weeks along with significant reductions in fasting lipid and post-meal glucose/insulin levels.
White Kidney Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) – inhibits amylase, the digestive enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates to be absorbed into the bloodstream as glucose. Phaseolus vulgaris has produced weight loss of 6.5 pounds on average in 30 days and abdominal fat reductions.
Irvingia gabonensis – has amylase digestive enzyme inhibiting properties. This African mango extract also favorably regulates Leptin to decrease appetite and facilitate triglyceride removal from adipocytes (fat cells). It also regulates Adiponectin to facilitate insulin sensitivity, and Glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase to inhibit glucose from converting to triglyceride fat in adipocytes. Irvingia has demonstrated weight loss of 20 pounds on average in 10 weeks in placebo-controlled trials.
Green Tea Phytosome – boosts resting metabolic rate and helps impede the lipase enzyme used to facilitate dietary fat breakdown. This proprietary green tea phytosome has been shown to absorb much better into the bloodstream than conventional green tea. It induced 30.1 pounds of weight loss on average in 90 days when combined with a reduced calorie diet.
Take one scoop twice daily with 8 to 16 ounces of water 15 to 30 minutes before the heaviest meals, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
Stir briskly and consume immediately.
