providing an optimization of slimming and weight reducing effects when brought together in a significantly high dosage (15,860mg per daily dose).
Green tea possesses numerous virtues. It has traditionally been used as a diuretic (facilitating the elimination of water) and a lipolytic (encouraging the elimination of fats). Besides its antioxidant properties, it has also been recognized for stimulating thermogenesis (increased energy expenditure by accelerating the metabolism).
The leaves of the blackcurrant have been traditionally used for increasing urine output and therefore encouraging the elimination of water and toxins. In animals, the leaves have shown a certain anti-inflammatory, diuretic and hypotensive activity. In 2010, the European Medicines Agency recognized the traditional use of blackcurrant leaves for increasing urine output. The blackcurrant leaf contains flavonoids of which the polyphenols have a diuretic effect.
The numerous active ingredients in Guarana seeds (in particular guaranine and caffeine) make them an efficient physical and intellectual stimulant. In fulfilling such functions, Guarana is helpful in ensuring proper conditions for the smooth running and completion of a diet, especially if accompanied with physical exercises. Guarana is also traditionally used for facilitating weight-loss by acting on the lipolysis of triglycerides stored in the adipocytes, by inhibition of the phosphodiesterase. The caffeine component present in Guarana accelerates the “burning” of body fats, increases basal cell metabolism and thus encourages the elimination of fats stored by the body. In addition, caffeine increases glycolysis.
Caffeine is traditionally used to combat short-term fatigue. It also stimulates the central nervous system and serves to increase attention span while contributing to the fight against sleepiness. It acts on the heartbeat by accelerating it, and stimulates the intellect such that it can contribute to improve cognitive performance. In fulfilling these functions, it can be of great help in ensuring an efficient diet while maintaining full mental and physical performance in everyday life, particular when said diet is associated to physical exercises. In addition, caffeine possesses slimming virtues. Indeed, it acts on lipolysis by the inhibition of the phosphodiesterases. Similar to the caffeine present in Guarana, it enhances the “burning” of fats, increases the basal cell metabolism which encourages the elimination of fats.
Carnitine plays an important role in the transport of long-chain fatty acids which enables energy production. It is therefore essential for the proper functioning of muscles, including the heart. As part of a low calorie diet, L-Carnitine encourages the burning of fats and the production of energy by muscles.
Recognized for their diuretic and cleansing power, cherry stems enable the body to get rid of all accumulated toxins. Cherry stems are also effective in combatting water retention problems, urinary infections and gallstones. These actions are due to the flavonoids and potassium salts that they contain. These elements stimulate both urinary and digestive elimination, enabling the “cleansing” of accumulated toxins from the entire body.
Vitamin C is involved in a large number of biological reactions. It is especially known for its general stimulus effect as it increases intellectual and physical capacity. Vitamin C occurs in the transport of hydrogen (reducing role), activating cellular metabolism, encouraging the formation of muscle glycogen. Vitamin C also increases work and output capacity by increasing the blood’s free fatty acid level, this growth coinciding with a mobilization of catecholamines (noradrenaline and dopamine that are neurotransmitters). Vitamin C is an activator of the adrenal cortex that secretes aldosterone, cortisone and steroids. When blood glucose drops and fats are not completely burned, this causes the accumulation of ketone bodies, acids that are the cause of fatigue, and which vitamin C contributes to overcome by purifying the body. Vitamin C plays an important role as an anti-infective agent to neutralize the microbial toxins.
The black elderberry (Sambucus nigra) has been valued for its numerous therapeutic uses since ancient times. Elderberry berries have laxative and purgative properties whereas the bark is mainly used for its diuretic effects. The flowers and the bark of the black elderberry contain mucilage (a substance that calms inflammation), tannins, flavonoids, as well as potassium nitrate and phenolic acids that appear to be responsible for their diuretic effects. In Italy, Belgium, France, Germany and England, it is recognized for its diuretic, diaphoretic (that causes sweating) and anti-inflammatory virtues. Elderberry is used in phytotherapy and herbalism as an alternative to help in eliminating the waste accumulated through the kidneys, bowel, skin and mucous membranes.
CAYENNE HOT PEPPER
Cayenne Hot Pepper is renowned for its very characteristic spicy taste. Capsaicin is responsible for the pepper’s sensation of spicy heat and antioxidant effect. In addition, studies on humans revealed that the pepper’s capsaicin leads to an increase of basal metabolism after dietary intake. It has also been demonstrated on humans that capsaicin can increase the sensation of satiety and decrease food intake. Combined with a healthy lifestyle, the pepper’s short-term effects can be an additional asset for people wishing to reduce their body weight.
