L-carnitine is a water-soluble nutrient that helps support healthy fat utilization and energy production.
Carnitine has an important role in weight-loss because it is anti-inflammatory and aids in transportation of fats into the mitochondria to be burned to generate energy. Carnitine enhances the sensitivity of insulin receptors, helping to decrease blood sugar and circulating levels of insulin.
Green tea is extremely rich in polyphenol, an highly antioxidant plant substance that is produced by lightly steaming the fresh cut leaf, which inactivates the enzymes responsible for oxidation.
The polyphenols in green tea can block the intestinal absorption of cholesterol and promote its excretion from the body.
Studies suggest that EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate, the most significant active component of green tea) may boost metabolism and help burn fat. It helps increase the metabolic rate, prevents the digestion of some carbohydrate and helps reduce appetite.
Green tea traditionally has been used to control blood sugar in the body and may help prevent the development of type 1 diabetes and slow the progression once it has developed. EGCG may help regulate glucose in the body because it has a slight inhibition on carbohydrate digesting enzymes.
Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is a type of unsaturated fatty acid that is found in meat and dairy products of ruminant animals, such as cows and sheep.
CLA has been shown to prevent cancer, improve insulin resistance and regulate blood sugar, improve immune system function, reduce inflammation in the system and promote weight loss.
It can improve body composition, with reduction in body fat and sometimes increases in muscle mass.
Lecithin is a natural substance, which can be found in plants, for example soy. Lecithin consists of two main active ingredients: choline and inositol.
Lecithin contributes to normal homocysteine metabolism and takes part in normal fat metabolism.
