Slim Complex Capsules - 30 count
More than two-third of adults in the United States are overweight or obese. Forty-five percent of overweight Americans and 67% of those who are obese are trying to lose weight on any given day. Each year Americans spend billions of dollars on diet products yet they continue to gain weight rather than lose weight. The main reason is that most of these diet products are simply ineffective or have far too many ingredients in too small amounts to be helpful. The average diet product contains 10 different ingredients, but some contain as many as 96. The better products employ less ingredients in more biologically active strengths.
Garcinia Cambogia: Garcinia Cambogia fruit rind, high in hydroxycitric acid (HCA), has been extensively studied for its anti-obesity activity. It has been demonstrated to reduce food intake and body fat gain by regulating the serotonin levels related to satiety, increasing fat oxidation and decreasing lipogenesis. When used in its raw form, the crude extract also exerted hypolipidaemic, anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and hepato-protective activities.
Cacao: Cacao is the raw plant ingredient that chocolate is derived from. Interestingly, cacao helps in weight loss in many ways. First, and most importantly, it works by improving mitochondrial biogenesis; that is, increasing the total number of mitochondria and the mass of each. What that means is it can assist the body in pulling fatty acid chains out of the blood and using them for energy. Cacao has also been shown to stimulate serotonin production in the brain which suppresses the appetite, resulting in fewer calories consumed. Interestingly, cacao also contains extremely high amounts of OEA (N-oleolethanolamine) and 18:3 NAE (N- linoleoylethanolamine). These two chemical cousins of anandamide are powerful cannabinoid breakdown inhibitors. What this means is that cacao will enable the various cannabinoids, including CBD, to stay active in the body far longer providing even more benefits.
CBD: The CBD contained in this product is Hydro Hemp ™, a completely water soluble true Full Spectrum Hemp Oil Powder which retains all its cannabinoid, terpenes and phytonutrients in their natural state. Hydro Hemp™ sets a new standard for solubility and bioavailability in that it is a true micelle preparation, hydrophobic on the inside yet totally hydrophilic on the outside.
Although there has not been a lot of research done on CBD and fat loss, the research that has been done is conclusive. CBD has been found to promote fat loss, first, by stimulating genes and proteins that stimulate the breakdown and oxidation of fat. Second, CBD increases the number and activity of mitochondria which increases the body’s ability to burn calories. Overall, CBD converts white fat in the body to brown fat, which improves glucose tolerance and fat burning.
