How can Re-set help with healthy weight loss?
Re-set has been designed to be a potent combination of herbs and vitamins to help you to achieve a natural healthy weight.
The herbs and vitamins we choose are all from 100% natural sources and blended to give the best results. Our vitamins and minerals within the formulation are used because they have very scientific claims confirmed by the European Food Standard Association. We have looked at how these ingredients can assist with metabolism and the maintainnce of blood glucose levels.
Chromium has been selected as it contributes to normal macronutrient metabolism and the mainentance of normal blood glucose levels.
Copper contributes to nomral energy-yielding metabolism and to normal iron transport around the body. It also supports normal connective tissues helping with skin and muscle.
Zinc contributes to normal acid base metabolism, carbohydrate metabolism and protein synthesis
Does Chlorogenic Acid give an added boost to weight loss?
Green coffee extract (GCA) is derived from raw, unroasted green coffee beans which are naturally low in caffeine,
The following study PMID: 25248334 has shown 'direct evidence in support of CGA as a potent compound in preventing diet-induced obesity and obesity-related metabolic syndrome. Our results suggest that drinking coffee is beneficial in maintaining metabolic homeostasis when on a high fat diet.'
White Mulberry Leaf
A traditional herb from Chinese medicine. Mulberry Leaf has been associated with strengthening your immune system, recent work has indicated that it may assist with reducing carbohydrate absorption and maintaining a healthy blood sugar level. Mulberry Leaves contain high levels of magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and calcium which are essential for bone strength, hair and nail growth as well as many other associated health benefits.
What is gynostemma pentaphyllum?
Gynostemma pentaphyllum is a chinese herb of the Cucurbitceae which is known as 'a little herb of immortality'. It has been associated with many health benefits.
How can gynostemma pentaphyllum help with weight loss?
AMPK or 5' adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase is an enzyme that plays a role in cellular energy regulation. Once AMPK is activated it tells the body to start buning energy instead of storing it. Recent research by NASA linked Gynostemma pentaphyllum to the activation of AMPK.
Old proteins are broken down and replced with new ones to improve muscle condition and an added benefit is that it may help to improve insulin sensitivity.
Activated AMP increases fat burning and reduces cholesterol formation, the combined effects are improved muscular performance, visceral and other fat reduction and an overall reduction in weight.
Recent research by NASA and others have shown the effects of AMP some of which has just been published in the prestigious journal Obesity (8).
In this double-blind trial, 80 subjects with a BMI between 25 and 30 were randomised to active or placebo groups and treated for 12 weeks. The active group received capsules containing 450 mg ActivAMP per day; no recommendations were made regarding dietary or exercise. At trial end, total abdominal fat area, body weight, body fat mass, percent body fat, and BMI were significantly decreased (p=0.044, p<0.05, p<0.0001, p< 0.0001, and p< 0.05, respectively) in the active group compared to the placebo group. Interestingly, the reductions in visceral adiposity were particularly marked, as they are following exercise
The summary from the work read as follows: We can use to help activate the profound energy switching enzyme AMPK, and replicate the metabolic and health benefits of exercise.* It also clearly has a role in sports and athletics, where its ability to improve muscle fitness is creating intense interest in professional circles*.
