Weight management is best achieved with regular exercise and a proper diet based on your Nutritional Type. Burning fat, however, can be more of a challenge. “Belly fat” or abdominal fat is a type of fat that surrounds your organs. This promotes the release of cytokines, which are cell-signaling proteins that are associated with less-than-optimal health. Belly fat is also the most difficult type of fat to burn.
Thankfully, Dr. Joseph Mercola offers a solution that helps support your weight management efforts.*
But first, have you ever wondered why some people pack on pounds? In order for fat to control their size and number, they secrete three different “command signals.”
This hormone signals your brain that you have eaten enough. Your body is programmed to stop eating once this message is “heard.”
Overweight people often suffer from leptin resistance, which causes overeating and insulin resistance. With weight gain, your fat cells grow in size and pump more leptin into your bloodstream, which the brain finds hard to sense. In an effort to compensate, the fat cells keep on pumping until an overload occurs and disrupts your cells’ ability to respond to the leptin signals optimally.
This hormone helps your body retain insulin sensitivity. When fat tissues increase, levels of adiponectin drop because enlarged fat cells produce less of this hormone. This leads to an increase in belly fat. Studies have seen that adiponectin levels are higher in lean people than in overweight individuals.
Unlike the first two, this is an enzyme that helps convert starch and sugar calories to stored body fat. In order to stay lean and healthy, you need to maintain your levels of this enzyme.
A Mercola Supplement that Supports Your Fat-Burning Capabilities*
Dr. Mercola introduces BioTHIN with Irvingia™, a supplement that will support your weight maintenance efforts when combined with the proper diet and exercise.* It contains powerful extracts and botanicals that contribute to helping you reach your normal body composition.*
Irvingia helps utilize leptin levels in your bloodstream.* A recent study showed that not only does Irvingia have positive effects on leptin sensitivity, but it is also linked to the shedding of fat around the waist area.* This extract also helps:
- Reduce glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase*
- Support a slowing of the rate of carbohydrate absorption*
- Support healthy adiponectin levels and maintain insulin sensitivity*
Studies show that fucoxanthin, a natural carotenoid found in brown seaweed, may help your body’s fat-burning process.* It supports your metabolism without activating your central nervous system.* Fucoxanthin also appears to target a protein called UCP1, which increases the rate at which abdominal fat is burned.*
Because it is an antioxidant, fucoxanthin is also capable of helping protect your body from free radicals, as well as supporting your cardiovascular health, immune system, cholesterol and blood pressure levels already within the normal range, and liver function.*
Pomegranate is known to have antioxidant properties that help defend your body against free radicals.*One study states that this fruit has triple the amount of antioxidant activity of either green tea or red wine.*Pomegranates also contain bioflavonoids that support your capillary walls.*
With pomegranate extracts, BioTHIN with Irvingia™ contributes to better tissue health, heart health, immune system function, and proper oxidative balance in your body.*
With 12 different antioxidants, this health-promoting spice provides free radical protection.* At the same time, it can support optimal cell division, cardiovascular health, healthy immune response, and digestive system health.*
Also known as gambooge, this small fruit possesses a biologically active compound called hydroxycitric acid (HCA) that can prevent the body from storing lipids and fatty acids and the conversion of excess calories to body fat.* It can also help suppress your appetite.*
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) contains the benefits of apples and the added acids and enzymes from fermentation.* Preliminary research states that it can trigger a hormonal reflex that sends a feeling of satiety to your brain.* Evidence also shows that ACV can help suppress your appetite and improve the digestion process.*
ACV can also help in supporting bone health, healthy lipid levels, heart health, circulatory system, healthy immune response, and normal detoxification of your body.*
Cayenne owes its hot and spicy nature to a substance called capsaicin. It is said that with this substance, cayenne increases your body’s production of heat, which may possibly aid in burning more calories and increasing metabolism.* According to studies, cayenne can also help regulate blood sugar and help break down carbs after a meal.*
Cayenne is also shown to be helpful in promoting cardiovascular health, digestive health, normal detoxification, and healthy immune response and in providing energy.*
Dr. Mercola says that you need not worry about exposing your body to potentially dangerous weight management techniques with this natural supplement.* This Mercola supplement offers other benefits with its concentration of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.*
Together with thorough planning of your meals based on your Nutritional Type (using a good nutritional plan) and living an active lifestyle, BioTHIN with Irvingia™ can help you achieve a healthier and leaner body.*
