I PRINCIPI ATTIVI
The bark of the white willow (a plant native to Europe and Western and Central Asia) contains a substance called salicin, which in addition to being a very potent anti-inflammatory ingredient, extends and prolongs the effects of weight loss supplements. It has been found to be particularly effective in expanding the activity of thermogenic ingredients, increasing their lipolytic function.
Ginger (a herbaceous plant native to the Far East) makes it easier to burn calories and also gives a sense of satiety. The positive effects on mood are known, probably due to the considerable antioxidant effect it has on the brain. Ginger increases the burning of calories through the production of heat and increased metabolism, improves the use of stored body fat as an energy source.
Preliminary evidence suggests that ginger can inhibit the absorption of food fats.
Schisandra (a climbing plant native to Asia) provides metabolic increases, but without any increase in blood pressure. For this reason, it is often used in dietary programs as an aid to weight loss and mental coordination. In addition, reducing cortisol peaks can prevent the body from storing excess fat. It is also a supplement to improve concentration, fights both depression and anxiety, prevents excess cortisol, fighting hypertension and accelerated heartbeat.
Citrus aurantium (bitter orange) has an effective thermogenic action, because the synephrine contained in it promotes the use of fats for energy purposes, activates the process of lipolysis of fats in adipose tissue, contributes to the increase in basal metabolism and the consequent increase in daily calorie consumption. Synephrine is an absolutely safe substance in healthy subjects, taken in the recommended doses has no specific side effect. Like other substances that affect the metabolism, however, its intake is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Garcinia Cambogia (Indonesian subtropical plant) suppresses appetite by optimizing serotonin levels. Low levels of serotonin are linked to depression and anxiety, which push many people to eat emotionally. It helps relaxation and mental well-being, improves digestive function and contributes to the elimination of intestinal gases. It is an exceptional natural thermogenic that allows you to burn more calories than normal and thus facilitates weight loss. Garcinia has the ability to promote a positive and serene mood, not to feel anxiety, exhaustion and nervousness. This is due to the fact that Garcinia Cambogia acts at a neurological level producing endorphins, which stimulate well-being and good mood.
Turmeric (herbaceous perennial plant) prevents the accumulation of fat and accelerates fat loss. It suppresses the inflammation associated with overweight, due to excessive accumulation of fat mass. In this case, an increase in pro-inflammatory substances called adipokines has been observed. Some of these substances such as IL-6 and TNF-α have an inflammatory action that leads to the production of oxidative stress. Turmeric promotes liver health, helps the body metabolize fats by reducing the storage of fats within liver cells. It interrupts the supply of blood to lipid cells, making it difficult to multiply them and thus promoting weight loss. Turmeric also improves memory and mood and could be a valuable ally in countering the effects of Alzheimer’s, according to a study published in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry.
Forskolin (Coleus Forskohlii, mainly found in India, Africa and Southeast Asia) is a bioactive compound extracted from the root of the plant. It has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine to manage heart conditions, spasms, seizures and painful urination. Forskolin can also help burn fat and prevent weight gain by increasing lipolysis. At its most basic level, forskolin is known to cause increases in a chemical called cyclic adenosine monophosphate, or cAMP for short. This compound is involved in helping to regulate many vital functions in our body and is known to offer benefits in the treatment and prevention of many important diseases. By activating cAMP, forskolin can increase the degradation of fat cells and decrease their production. Recent medical research suggests that low levels of cAMP can lead to adverse health complications such as asthma, chest pain, hypertension and psoriasis.
Forskolin has been shown to have a marked ability to influence muscle/fat ratios in the body, regulate lipid levels, promote blood pressure, and promote the development of newer, healthier lipids.
