Body App™ Weight Control provides a complex array of vitamins, herbs, and nutraceuticals that support the normal balance of the deep metabolic systems that are helpful in maintaining healthy weight and blood sugar stabilization.*
Specific Clinical Objectives of Body App™ Weight Control
- Garcinia Cambogia, a small fruit from southern India, contains HCA (hydroxycitric acid) which may reduce the synthesis of fatty acids in humans during a persistent excess of energy intake as carbohydrate. It has been suggested that HCA promotes weight loss by increasing serotonin levels, reducing hunger and appetite, and suppressing carbohydrate conversion into fat by inhibiting ATP-citrate lyase, thus regulating fat and related genes.
- Green Tea Extract (Camellia sinensis) provides powerful antioxidant effects throughout the body. Green tea contains health-promoting polyphenols including epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a powerful antioxidant which has been the subject of extensive scientific research. Research has documented the metabolic effects of green tea polyphenols to inhibit the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
- WellTrim® IG, a patented proprietary extract of African Mango (Irvingia gabonensis), has been clinically studied for its effects on weight management and metabolic wellness. A clinical study using WellTrim® IG demonstrated that this extract can help support a healthy weight and body composition, as well as blood lipids and blood sugar already within the normal range.
- Forskolin’s (Coleus forskohlii) basic mechanism of action is the activation of an enzyme, adenylate cyclase, which increases cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) in cells. Cyclic AMP is perhaps the most important cell-regulating compound. Once formed, it activates many other enzymes involved in diverse cellular functions.
- Capsimax®has been studied in several human clinical trials, all conducted within the U.S. The first trial assessed the impact of a supplement containing Capsimax® on energy expenditure before, during and after exercise in healthy, normal weight individuals. The Capsimax® containing supplement resulted in an energy expenditure that exceeded that of placebo by approximately 200kcal.
