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 of at which
unwanted fat is released from body stores (lipolysis). It also safely increases
the resting metabolic rate (thermo genesis).
Another cutting edge
nutrient, RiboCell™, has been shown to initiate and speed up the metabolic
process responsible for creating ATP (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 also shown that chromium may reduce high blood
pressure and reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
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.
