The active ingredient in Garcinia Cambogia, called hydroxycitric acid (HCA), derived from its fruit and rind is popular in many natural weight loss products.
Used to suppress your appetite and enhance fat-burning. The theory behind how it works is that the HCA inhibits an enzyme called citrate lyase that helps to turn excess carbohydrates into fat. By suppressing this enzyme, the body increases the carbohydrate oxidation i.e. it burns up the extra carbohydrates. In some human studies using garcinia Cambogia or a placebo, the HCA group doubled or tripled their weight loss results over a 12-week period as compared to the control group
A trace mineral, chromium promotes normal macronutrient metabolism and helps with the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels. Click here, here and here for EFSA scientific opinions.
An essential trace mineral that plays a significant role in normal carbohydrate metabolism, which turns food into sugars. Chromium helps insulin (a natural hormone that is released in response to eating carbohydrates) to properly "transport" these sugars into cells to be stored as energy. It also supports stable blood sugar levels - critical for slimmer’s as high and low spikes can lead to cravings, excessive hunger and binge eating.
Glucomannan is a form of soluble dietary fibre extracted from the root of the konjac plant (Amorphophallus konjac).
Sugar made from the root of the konjac plant, which has been used for centuries in traditional Japanese cooking as a thickener or gelling agent. It is so famous in Japan that it is now widely referred to as “the broom of the intestines". Glucomannan acts to create a sense of fullness (without leaving you feeling gassy or bloated), by absorbing water and expanding to form a bulky fibre in the stomach. It can therefore assist with appetite control and the regulation of cravings. When consumed, glucomannan also “sponges” up water in the digestive tract, reducing the absorption of carbohydrates and cholesterol and thus supporting weight loss.
Green coffee extract
Green coffee beans are beans that have not been roasted. The roasting process reduces amounts of the active chemical, chlorogenic acid. Therefore, green coffee extract (from unroasted beans that have been soaked and then concentrated) have a higher level of this acid compared to regular, roasted coffee beans.
Chlorogenic acid in green coffee beans has been shown in studies to have potential health benefits for the heart, diabetes and weight loss. For high blood pressure, it can affect blood vessels so that pressure decreases.
For weight loss, chlorogenic acid is thought to affect how the body handles blood sugar and metabolism. A study in India found that people taking pills with green coffee bean extract lost an average of 18 pounds - 10% of their body weight - over a period of 22 weeks. The study, published in the journal Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity, tested two doses of extract - 700 and 1,050mg per day. Garcinia Cambogia Complex contains the equivalent of 1,500mg of green coffee powder, along with the other specialist ingredients
Kidney bean extract
Kidney bean extract is a natural ingredient commonly sold in supplement form. Technically referred to as Phaseolus Vulgaris, it is typically referred to in weight loss circles as a “starch blocker”. It works by preventing alpha-amylase (an enzyme that occurs naturally in the body) from breaking down carbohydrates into glucose (sugar). By slowing down alpha-amylase activity, less glucose is present for the body to turn into fat. Kidney bean extract has also been associated with stable blood sugar levels, protecting you from diabetes and heart disease, enhanced athletic performance and increased energy levels
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)
Conjugated Linoleic Acid is a slightly modified form of Linoleic Acid (LA), an omega-6 fatty acid. Omega-6 fatty acids are derived from the foods we eat, primarily from meat and dairy products. It cannot be manufactured by the body.
Conjugated Linoleic Acid is a well-researched fatty acid that is found in red meat and dairy products.
Slimmer’s usually wish to avoid these foods, due to the high levels of saturated fat and calories present in them, but still wish to benefit from the weight loss actions of CLA. Weight loss products containing CLA are therefore popular, as they provide a convenient solution to this dilemma. CLA is a powerful antioxidant, immune system supporter and, as a weight loss aid, helps muscle tissue to burn more fat, so lowering body fat and cholesterol levels. It can also: raise levels of “good” cholesterol (HDL) and lower elevated triglycerides; help improve bone strength and increase muscle tissue, and help the body to regulate fat and protein metabolism.
Cinnamon is widely acknowledged as a metabolism booster, which assists the body in the faster burning of calories and fat stores for use as energy. It also has a regulating effect on blood sugar levels and simultaneously increases insulin levels in the body, helping to control both the appetite and cravings.
It mimics the biological activity of insulin and increases the metabolism of glucose. Since high blood sugar levels can lead to increased storage of fat by the body, cinnamon helps weight loss by helping to prevent this.
- It affects the manner in which sugar is metabolised by the body and prevents the transformation of the metabolised sugar into fat
