This comprehensive formula contains four plant-based ingredients that are each scientifically shown to promote weight loss … plus a fifth that helps inhibit after-meal glucose surges. All in one stimulant-free, natural blueberry-flavored, powdered drink mix.
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.1 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.2-8 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.9,10
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.11-13
Irvingia gabonensis (African mango extract) – has amylase digestive enzyme inhibiting properties.14 Irvingia also favorably regulates leptin to decrease appetite and facilitate triglyceride removal from adipocytes (fat cells). It also regulates adiponectin to facilitate insulin sensitivity,15 and glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase to inhibit glucose from converting to triglyceride fat in adipocytes.16 Irvingia has demonstrated weight loss of 20 pounds on average in 10 weeks in placebo-controlled trials.15
Green Tea Phytosome – boosts resting metabolic rate17 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.18
CoffeeGenic® Green Coffee Extract – is standardized to 50% chlorogenic acids for maximum potency and effect in helping to maintain healthy glucose levels already within normal range.19 Chlorogenic acids have been shown to inhibit excess activity of glucose-6-phosphatase,20,21 the enzyme that triggers glucose formation from noncarbohydrate substrates and glycogen release from the liver, both of which can create excess glucose in the blood.22 Chlorogenic acids also target inhibition of alpha-glucosidase, an intestinal enzyme that breaks apart complex sugars and enhances their absorption into the bloodstream.23 A 200 mg clinical dose of this extract was shown to induce a 14% drop in after-meal glucose spikes within 30 minutes.24
This stimulant-free, natural blueberry flavored, powdered drink mix will help cut your appetite; block absorption of starches, dietary fats and calories; boost your resting metabolic rate; help break down stored body fat; and even help you manage your blood glucose level already within normal range.
This supplement should be taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise program. Results may vary.
