|Facts About Weight Loss and Fat Burning
Nine out of ten Americans today want or need to lose weight. As a nation, we are 30% heavier than we were 20 years ago. The fat-free, low calorie hit or miss programs advocated in the past have obviously not worked, and people are looking for other answers. In response to this demand, a number of amazing new nutrients have recently come to market.
Advantra Z, a patent-pending extract of zhi shi (the immature dried fruit of citrus aurantium, or bitter orange) is a perfect example of this. Zhi shi has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine with great results and absolutely no reported adverse effects. Advantra Z is the only form of zhi shi on the market with a pending formulation and use patent for burning fat, increasing physical performance, and building lean muscle mass. Research shows that it stimulates the beta-3 receptors, thereby increasing the rate at which unwanted fat is released from the body stores (lipolysis). It also safely increases the resting metabolic rate (thermogenesis).
Another cutting edge nutrient, RiboCell, has been shown to initiate and speed up the metabolic process responsible for creating STP (adenosine triphosphate) which leads to enhanced muscular energy and rapid recuperation.
Chromium, an important trace mineral that is badly depleted during processing or refining of grains, is essential for proper carbohydrate metabolism, fat burning, and insulin regulation. Studies have shown that chromium may reduce high blood pressure and reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
There are also several well-known herbs, such as Ma Huang and Guarana, which help to speed up metabolism and provide increased energy. However, if these herbs are not appropriately buffered they may enter the system too quickly and result in the jitters and other possible side effects.
Finally, for anyone struggling with food cravings, Gymnema Sylvestre extract is a must. This herb has an exciting reputation for reducing the desire for sweets. Eating too much sugar-together with chromium depletion-is the cardinal cause of America's increasing diabetes and hypoglycemia epidemics.
