Physician’s Weight Management Formula

Optimised Irvingia with Phase 3 Calorie Control Complex

This formulation provides a combination of natural compounds that combat age-related fat accumulation. By helping to slow the absorption of starchy food or sugars, it reduces their caloric impact.

Phase 3™ Sucrase Modulator

Sucrase is the name given to a number of enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of sucrose to fructose and glucose in the small intestine for absorption into the bloodstream. It can help support healthy insulin metabolism and blood sugar levels in those already within normal range.

Green Tea Phytosome Cellular Energy Enhancer

The ability of green tea extracts to inhibit the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat has been the subject of research studies. Mounting scientific research has documented the metabolic effects of green tea polyphenols. A proprietary phytosome complex has shown an ability to increase the absorption of green tea polyphenols into the bloodstream better than conventional tea extracts, resulting in peak plasma levels of the critical green tea polyphenol epigallocatechin-3-gallate.

The Alpha-Amylase Enzyme

Aging reduces our ability to utilize the carbohydrates (and fats) that constitute what most would consider part of a healthy diet. Emerging scientific research suggests that the alpha-amylase enzyme plays an undesirable role in the digestion of dietary carbohydrates and subsequent absorption of calories from starch and sugar.

A natural bean extract (Phaseolus vulgaris) seeks to moderate alpha-amylase activity.

The Alpha-Glucosidase Enzyme

Another intestinal enzyme that enables carbohydrate absorption is alpha-glucosidase. A patented seaweed extract (InSea2™) has demonstrated the ability to help maintain healthy levels of both alpha-glucosidase and alpha-amylase.

By taking nutrients before each meal that reduce the activity of carbohydrate and fat digesting enzymes, the calorie burden is significantly reduced.

Leptin Sensitivity

Fat cells (adipocytes) secrete a hormone called leptin that tells our brain we have eaten enough.  An extract from an African mango called Irvingia gabonensishas been shown to help support leptin sensitivity in overweight people.

An article published in Lipids in Health & Disease setting out the study evaluating the effects of IGOB131 (an extract of irvingia gabonensis) on body weight and associated metabolic parameters in overweight human volunteers[1]. Results showed significant improvements in body weight, body fat and waist circumference, as well as plasma total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, blood glucose, C-reactive protein, adiponection and leptin levels compared with the placebo group.

Conjugated Linoleic Acid Blend

Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) has been shown in a number of studies to have a wide variety of benefits with regards to the immune system, cardiovascular protection, blood sugar maintenance, lipid profiles and body composition.

The monograph on the Natural Standard, The Authority on Integrative Medicine on CLA, grades CLA a “B” (good scientific evidence) in assisting in obesity and weight loss.
