More about the Ingredients:
Cinnamon can support weight management in a number of ways. For example, it has the unique ability to imitate the activity of insulin in the body, thereby helping to regulate blood sugar levels so that excess fat does not build up and the body is less likely to experience hunger surges and cravings. But it's not only sugar metabolism that cinnamon has the ability to alter; it also positively affects the body's ability to use its carbohydrate storage, so that carbohydrates are not converted into excess fat. The consumption of cinnamon itself, also causes a metabolic reaction. Similar to when you eat hot peppers, the presence of cinnamon in the body speeds up the metabolism because it takes a little extra energy to metabolise. This boost in metabolism allows the body to burn more calories and therefore assists with weight loss. We have used cinnamon extract in Green Coffee Bean EXTREME (a concentrated form of the actives in cinnamon powder).
Kelp is a natural superfood packed with trace minerals, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. As such, it provides a broad spectrum of nutrients, which help to ensure the body is working optimally (which is essential for any successful, long-term weight loss program). For example if your digestion is compromised, your metabolism could be affected and weight loss hindered. Amongst its wide array of nutrients, kelp is one of the best natural sources of iodine and it can provide adequate levels to stimulate a sluggish thyroid and encourage a healthy metabolism. An efficient metabolism is key for maintaining ideal body weight and iodine is the catalyst that can jump-start metabolic processes. The thyroid gland absorbs iodine, which is usually obtained by diet or supplementation, and subsequently releases the hormones that control metabolic function. We have used kelp extract (a concentrated form of the actives in kelp powder).Kelp also contains alginate, which can help to keep you feeling satisfied - ideal for slimmers, who often experience hunger, cravings and appetite control issues in the early stages of weight loss.And finally, kelp is rich in fucoidans (molecules found exclusively in seaweeds). These support both the immune system and cell function.
The red cayenne pepper has been shown to curb appetite, stimulate circulation, speed up metabolism and help the body to burn extra calories - cayenne can increase the metabolic rate by as much as 25%. When you eat a spicy food such as cayenne, it causes your body's temperature to rise. Your body then goes into a "cool down" mode, which results in the burning of calories. Capsaicin is the main active ingredient in cayenne pepper. Research has shown that it is a thermogenic agent (i.e. one which helps speed up your metabolism and decrease your appetite). Increasing metabolism helps to burn fat faster, which in turn enhances energy production - ideal when levels of physical activity increase as part of an exercise program to support slimming efforts!
Chromium is a trace mineral that enhances the action of insulin in the body, which is how it plays an important role in metabolising sugar and maintaining normal blood glucose levels. The body also needs chromium for healthy protein and fat metabolism. Chromium picolinate, the most absorbable form of chromium, is one of the hottest slimming supplements around. It has long been recognised as a natural remedy for elevated blood cholesterol and triglycerides, but it is now more popular for its weight loss effects. Aside from the benefits mentioned above, this is largely because studies have shown that this mineral can help trim fat and build muscle.
