Calorie Control Weight Management Powder Formula
w/White Kidney Bean, Konjac (LuraLean) Irvingia Gabonensis - 402 grams (14.18 oz.)

A review of the scientific literature strongly suggests that healthy life span may be greatly extended if we reduce the calorie burden our body is exposed to each day.1

While eating even a little less is helpful, most of us can benefit enormously if we consume supplements before meals that impede calorie absorption and favorably influence internal regulators of fat storage.

For instance, carbohydrates consumed without calorie inhibitors quickly pass from the stomach into the small intestine where they rapidly absorb into the blood.

This causes a surge in blood glucose and insulin that adversely impacts our health with numerous side effects.2  When gastric emptying into the small intestine is delayed (by certain calorie inhibitors), the rise in glucose-insulin is more gradual and carries fewer risks.

Inhibiting the amylase digestive enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates also blunts the effects of excess calorie intake while augmenting programs designed to shed fat pounds.3  When a meal is ingested, bile acids and the lipase enzyme are released into the digestive tract where they facilitate the break-down and absorption of ingested fats.  Compounds that bind to bile acids and/or neutralize lipase can impede the absorption of triglyceride-rich dietary fats.4,5  Some of these compounds also inhibit absorption through the intestinal wall by forming a viscous barrier around ingested foods.

Few people are aware of how many deadly excess calories they consume each day.  Their bloodstreams are chronically bloated with glucose, insulin, and triglycerides long after a meal is eaten.6,7  These side effects occur not only because they absorbed too many calories, but because their internal regulators of fat storage are impaired as a consequence of aging.  These individuals don't understand why they keep gaining weight even as they try to cut down on calorie intake and exercise more.

In response to mounting evidence that age-associated fat accumulation and associated side effects results from the loss of metabolic capacity to utilize ingested calories, this powdered drink mix has been designed with the following ingredients:

LuraLean (propolmannan) - This proprietary fiber has been developed to swell in the stomach after ingestion with water to help reduce calorie consumption.  Propolmannan binds to bile acids in the small intestine and helps transport them out of the body.8  These bile acids otherwise facilitate the digestion and assimilation of dietary fat into the bloodstream.  LuraLean propolmannan also slows the rapid emptying of ingested food into the small intestine, thereby reducing the side effects associated with the surge of glucose entering the bloodstream.

The reason LuraLean works better than other fibers is that its own enzymes have been removed, thus sparing it from degradation in the digestive tract.9-14  This enables LuraLean to form a stable viscous barrier to help impede calorie absorption and maintain its sponge-like activity throughout the digestive tract.  In placebo-controlled studies, LuraLean (propolmannan) has induced moderate weight loss along with significant reductions in fasting lipid and post-meal glucose and insulin levels.15,16

White Kidney Bean (Phaseolus Vulgaris) - The amylase digestive enzyme breaks down carbohydrates that are then absorbed into the bloodstream as glucose.  Phaseolus vulgaris inhibits amylase and has produced significant weight loss and abdominal fat reductions.3,17,18

Irvingia Gabonensis - Like white kidney bean, Irvingia has amylase-inhibiting properties19 and significant weight loss results in placebo-controlled trials.20  It also favorably regulates:

1.  Leptin to decrease appetite and facilitate triglyceride removal from adipocytes, 
2.  Adiponectin to facilitate insulin sensitivity20 and,
3.  Glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase to inhibit glucose from converting to triglyceride fat in adipocytes.21

Green Tea Phytosome - Aging results in a slowdown of resting energy expenditure.  This means that the more calories we eat convert to stored body fat instead of being utilized for energy production.  This proprietary green tea phytosome has been shown to absorb much better into the bloodstream than conventional green tea and induce approximately 30 pounds of weight loss on average in 90 days when combined with a reduced calorie diet.22  Green tea polyphenols boost resting metabolic rate23 and help impede the lipase enzyme used to facilitate dietary fat breakdown.5

Importance of Taking Calorie Control Weight Management Formula Before Heavy Meals
Americans live in a state of denial as it relates to the effects of excess calorie ingestion.  As a result, most have not yet accepted that they need to inhibit the absorption and effects of excess calories before the two heaviest meals of the day.  Excess calories kill us in four different ways:

1.  Even when we try to eat healthy, it is impossible to avoid mutagens that damage genes needed for healthy cell division.24,25  By reducing the total number of food particles that make it into our bloodstream, we reduce our overall systemic exposure to mutagens.

2.  Excess calories cause our bloodstream to be consistently loaded with triglycerides, glucose, and insulin.6,7  This creates oxidative and inflammatory reactions that can preclude us from maintaining healthy vascular (endothelial) function and glycemic control.

3.  Excess calories contribute to increased body fat storage, which can lead to systemic inflammation by means of pro-inflammatory factors produced by engorged fat cells.26

4.  Genes that control how long we will live are influenced by blood glucose levels.27  By reducing the amount of glucose that surges into our bloodstream, we can more favorably control many of our longevity genes.

Once we accept the danger that each surplus calorie poses to our aging body, it becomes easy to understand the need to impede the absorption and effects of ingested foods by taking the Calorie Control Weight Management formula before the two heaviest meals of the day.

The new Calorie Control Weight Management Formula contains a double-dose of propolmannan (LuraLean) used in the pilot trial of treatment-resistant individuals who shed almost 12 pounds on average after eight weeks.

This supplement should be taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise program.  Results may vary.
