Whether you’re looking to shed those stubborn pounds, lose the body fat, or just feel more energized throughout the day without the jitters, truWEIGHT & ENERGY has you covered. With no special diet required, this low maintenance, multi purpose supplement may be just what you’ve been waiting for!*
Excess weight has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. Over 50% of Americans carry excess weight and over 30% of Americans are clinically obese. What caused this? Simply put; lifestyle. We overeat, we eat “fast sugar” foods, and we don’t exercise enough. The tragedy is that obesity is affecting children more than ever before. More and more children begin carrying excess weight as early as elementary school. By the time they are teens, many of them are clinically obese. Many times these children have the odds against them. Over 50 years ago the trend, especially among children and teens, of eating larger portions of unhealthy “fast sugar” foods combined with less exercise began taking hold. Now, 3rd and 4th generations of overweight parents are passing on their negative lifestyle habits and digressive genetics that encourage obesity in their children. Excess weight is a major cause of diabetes, cardiovascular disease and many other debilitative and life-shortening diseases. 1 out of every 3 cancer deaths is linked to excess body weight.
We are dedicated to stopping the trend of carrying excess weight. Our objective is to help people lose their excess weight in a manner that is both healthy and realistic. Modifying diet, sleep habits and exercise habits is the best way to shed excess pounds. The reality is that most people are unwilling to stick with these kinds of changes. Even if they start out with a program that modifies these behaviors, sooner or later they usually “fall off the wagon”. And when they do, they not only gain back the weight they lost but usually put on additional weight. Our method involves optimizing the body’s metabolic processes in a way so simple that there is no “wagon” to fall off of and so undemanding that anyone can do it. We are able to accomplish this through our product: truWEIGHT & ENERGY. Two capsules twice a day is the simple regimen.
Our objective in engineering this formula was to provide a healthy means for individuals to lose excess weight and experience increased energy. There are some stimulants in this formula because they are necessary to effect the systemic and metabolic changes required to lose excess adipose tissue (fat). However, we have been very careful not to use substances or dosages that could result in addiction or compromise the cardiovascular system. This formula has been engineered to be beneficial in enhancing the health of those who use it. Following are descriptions of the key ingredients.
AMP (4-Amino-2-Methylpentane Citrate) is a substance produced in Pouchung Tea. It acts as a metabolism “booster” and assists the body in metabolizing fatty tissue. When combined with other ingredients, such as nominal amounts of caffeine, bitter orange and Phenylethylamine (PEA), it enhances the body’s ability to shed adipose tissue in a healthy manner without the side effects of jitters or cardiovascular complications. As the body metabolizes excess fat stores a subtle increase in energy is usually experienced.
Green Tea EGCG extract:
Green tea enriched in Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) shows significant results in helping individuals maintain their weight. Green tea has long shown promise in helping individuals maintain a healthy weight and, after significant green tea research, it is now believed that the EGCG compound is what contributes to the reduction in weight. There are three hypothesis on how Green Tea EGCG helps in promoting a healthy weight: 1) Supports healthy blood flow. By maintaining healthy blood flow throughout the body, there is increased oxygenation to muscles and thereby increasing caloric demands; 2) When combined with a nominal amount of caffeine it allows for fat oxidation (Dulloo et al, 1999); and 3) Encourages insulin effect by regulating the signaling of insulin in response to carbohydrate consumption which allows one to not be as susceptible to blood sugar spiking (Li et al, 2006). Green tea is also a rich source of anti-oxidants.
Dendrobium is one the fifty of fundamental herbs in traditional medicine. It is found in certain species of the Orchid family. The complexity of the plant is largely attributed to its unique profile of alkaloids, such as: Dendrine, Nobiline, Nobilonine, etc (Dr. Duke Phytochemical Database). Extracts enriched in dendrobium alkaloids show many beneficial effects including focus, confidence, and energy. Unlike other stimulants, these effects are not typically seen with an increase in blood pressure. Because of Dendrobiums unique properties it is considered to be highly effective in helping individuals obtain their weight loss goals when coupled with synephrine (Bitter Orange) and nominal amounts of caffeine.
The combination of Bitter Orange peel and caffeine is a safe alternative to thermogenic products. The active ingredient in Bitter Orange is Synephrine, which is a primary amine similar to ephedrine and phenylethylamine (PEA) (Figure 1). However, synephrine shows none of the negative side effects that eventually limited the sale of ephedra(Stohs et al., 2012). Bitter orange works by increasing the amount of glucose consumption by binding to adrenoreceptors, but at a much lower and healthier Kd than ephedrine (Stohs et al., 2011; Hong et al., 2012; Vinson et al., 2012).
One of the active stimulants found in chocolate is Phenylethylamine (PEA). PEA is an alkaloid that encourages increased release of dopamine that creates the “Chocolate High” we all know and love. The euphoric feeling associated with PEA usually lasts between 5-20 minutes, but allows for enhanced motivation from the release of dopamine. The increase in mood can often be found to encourage exercise and other activities associated with increased caloric expenditure. Because of the ability to enhance mood and promote exercise, PEA is found in a variety of top selling weight management products.
This formula does contain a low dose of caffeine. The formulators generally do not advocate the use of caffeine and, in fact, refrain from consuming beverages that contain caffeine. However, the use of caffeine in moderation and in the right application (i.e. the caffeine contained in aspirin) has a positive impact on one’s health. This formula does not contain a sufficient amount of caffeine to cause addiction or withdrawal symptoms. There is just enough used to act as a catalyst in activating other key ingredients in the formula.
Bioperine (Black Pepper):
Piperine, the active ingredient in black pepper, has been patent proven to encourage the absorption of molecules into the body (Majeed et al., 1996). This is critical since many compounds are prematurely metabolized into inactive forms through oral ingestion. Black pepper extract thereby triggers the active absorption of these compounds into the body allowing for enhanced and sustained effects of the active ingredients. Furthermore, piperine, has been shown to act as a fat burner similar to capsaicin by increasing basal metabolic rates (Diepvens et al., 2007; Hursel and Westerterp-Plantenga, 2010).
B-6 supports the metabolization of fat and is a natural diuretic, which helps the body avoid water retention. B-6 also helps to maintain normal blood sugar ranges. It can also have a stimulating effect on the thyroid. It is a water soluble vitamin that functions as a co-enzyme and is essential in the breakdown and utilization of carbohydrates and proteins. It also aids in the repair of tissues and cells.
B-12 can normalize appetite and give greater levels of energy which helps in fighting fatigue. It is also known to ease minor muscle aches and promote better sleep. It can enhance mood, contribute to clarity of thought and focus and it contributes to overall motivation to maintain an active lifestyle.
The body uses chromium in the digestive process and helps maintain nominal blood sugar levels. It is also reported to aid in building muscle tissue and burning fat. It may also slow the loss of calcium thus helping to prevent osteoporosis. Supplementing with chromium may support triglycerides and total cholesterol levels in people with high blood sugar and diabetics.
