The green tea in OptimHealth contains EGCG, and has been show to improve metabolic rate and raise the body’s thermogenesis processes. Increases in metabolism and thermogenesis require energy, which can prompt the body to burn stored fat. Studies have also shown green tea with EGCG to reduce the body’s ability to absorb fat.
Chromium is a trace mineral found naturally in whole-grain breads, fish and poultry. This mineral helps support healthy blood sugar levels by increasing sensitivity to insulin. The body uses insulin to move blood sugar through cell walls and into cells in order to generate energy.
Cocoa extract supports weight management by promoting fat burning and by boosting serotonin levels in the brain, which can enhance mood. Mood is a critical factor in sustaining a long-term weight management program and cocoa extract can help counter the mood declines that are sometimes associated with restricted caloric intake.
Ginger helps expand the blood vessels and increase thermogenesis. Ginger also helps stimulate circulation and detoxify the body, which can mean less water retention.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does green tea extract reduce the amount of fat absorbed or increase the amount of fat burned? Answer »Both. Studies using green tea extract with EGCG helped reduce the amount of fat absorbed by the body as well as increasing thermogenesis, which raises the body’s burn rate. Studies on green tea extract indicate that it increases metabolic activity and thermogenesis.
What’s the relationship between thermogenesis and metabolism? Answer »Thermogenesis raises the body’s temperature, or energy output. When thermogenesis increases, metabolism is raised and fat cells are converted into energy to support this metabolic increase.
How does cocoa bean extract help suppress appetite? Answer »In addition to boosting energy levels and elevating mood, cocoa extract also acts on the central nervous system to help curb your appetite.
Why is it harder for older adults to lose weight? Answer »Aging is a natural process that affects hormonal and metabolic processes and alters body composition. Most older adults lose a pound of muscle per year as they age, which lowers their Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), making it harder for them to lose weight.
Why does mood matter? Answer »Restricted calorie diets have been associated with a decline in feelings of general well-being and positive mood. To help counter this tendency, OptimHealth’s Weight Control Formula contains cocoa extract, which increases serotonin levels to help improve mood.
