Ingredients

Herbalean Proprietary Blend

Dietary SupplementChromium
is an essential trace mineral that aids in glucose metabolism, regulation of insulin levels, and maintenance of healthy blood levels of cholesterol and other lipids. Chromium forms part of a compound in the body known as glucose tolerance factor (GTF), which is involved in regulating the actions of insulin in maintaining blood sugar levels and, possibly, in helping to control appetite.
·  Lowers blood sugar
·  Increases insulin sensitivity
·  Reduces body fat
·  Controls hunger / suppresses appetite
·  Reduces cholesterol and triglyceride levels
·  Increases lean body mass / muscle mass


Citrus Auranthim,
and its various herbal cousins, functions as a sympathomimetic, meaning that it mimics some of the effects of the body's own sympathetic (stimulant) hormones such as epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine (either by increasing the levels of these hormones or by reducing their breakdown). Mahuang is a non-selective sympathomimetic, which means that it acts as a general stimulant on many parts of the body simultaneously (lungs, heart, blood vessels, adrenal glands, etc.). It is most often used as a central nervous system stimulant (for alertness or energy), as a decongestant (for asthma/breathing aid) and as an appetite suppressant in a wide variety of weight loss and thermogenic type products.           

  • Increased alertness
  • Speeds up metabolism
  • Aids weight loss
  • Enhanced athletic performance
  • Mental sharpness

Paullinia sorbilis
comes from the seeds of a South American shrub, most of which originates in Brazil. Traditional uses of paullinia sorbilis by natives of the Amazonian rain forest include crushed seeds added to foods and beverages to increase alertness and reduce fatigue
·  Increases energy levels / Reduces fatigue
·  Enhances physical and mental performance
·  Promotes weight loss
·  Suppresses appetite


Lotus Leaf
helps to suppress appetite and promote lipolysis (the process of breaking down fat into free fatty acids and glycerol). Lipolysis must take place before fat can be burned.
·  Suppresses appetite
·  Enhances immune system
·  Promotes weight loss


Hoodia Gordonii,
is the botanical name for a cactus like plant that grows in Southern Africa. The chemical constituents in Hoodia, P57, work within the satiety center by releasing a chemical compound similar to glucose, but are up to 100,000 times more powerful. The hypothalamus receives this signal as an indication that enough food has been consumed and this in turn stunts the appetite.   
·  Enhances physical and mental performance
·  Promotes weight loss
·  Suppresses appetite


Garcinia Cambogia
is a natural form of Hydroxcitric acid (HCA) which can inhibit an enzyme in cells, citrate lyase, which is needed for the conversion of carbohydrates into fat. In the cell, carbohydrates are broken down into citrate compounds, which are then converted (by citrate lyase) into another compound; acetyl coenzyme A (acetyl CoA) – the metabolic building block for fat synthesis.  Garcinia can inhibit fat production and suppress appetite.
·  Promotes weight loss
·  Suppresses appetite
·  Reduces blood lipids
·  Increases fat oxidation/mobilization
·  Promotes glycogen synthesis
·  Increases energy levels


White willow bark
is a source of salicin and other salicylates – compounds which are similar in structure to aspirin (acetyl salicylic acid). Native Americans are thought to have used ground willow bark and bark steeped for tea as a medicinal remedy for everything from pain relief to fevers.  White willow is thought to extend or increase the activity of several thermogenic ingredients in elevating energy expenditure and promoting fat metabolism.
·  Pain reliever (headaches, arthritis, minor injuries)
·  Fever reducer
·  Anti-inflammatory
·  Enhances weight loss (only in combination with other ingredients)


Citrus bigardia
in traditional Chinese medicine is used to help stimulate the Qi (energy force).   Through its stimulation of specific adrenergic receptors (beta-3, but not beta-1, beta-2 or alpha-1), citrus bigardiai is theorized to stimulate fat metabolism (which stimulates all beta-adrenergic receptors).
·  Increases metabolic rate
·  Increases caloric expenditure
·  Fat burner
·  Promotes weight loss
·  Increases energy levels


Konjac
has the ability to absorb up to 200 times its weight in water.  It can bind with a variety of substances in the digestive tract to slow digestion, relieve constipation and reduce the absorption of fat and carbohydrates. As such, Konjac is often used in products intended to reduce blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels as well as blood sugar.
·  Lowers cholesterol and triglyceride levels
·  Reduces fat absorption
·  Promotes blood sugar control
·  Promotes feeling of fullness (satiety)
·  Promotes weight loss


Bearberry
leaves contain compounds that have antibacterial and diuretic properties. These compounds are absorbed via the gastrointestinal tract, transported to the kidneys via the blood and excreted from the body via the urine. If the urine is alkaline (pH 8) these compounds are active, antibacterial agents. It is theorized that these compounds also act as mild diuretics and result in an increase in urine output.
·  Urinary antiseptic (antibacterial effect in the urine)
·  Diuretic (increases urine output)
·  Treatment of cystitis (Inflammation of the bladder, typically following a urinary tract infection)
·  Treatment of pyelonephrititis (inflammation of the kidney)


Eleutherococcus senticosus
is termed an adaptogen. An adaptogen is defined as a therapeutic and restorative tonic generally considered to produce a “balancing” effect on the body.  In general, an adaptogen can be thought of as a substance that helps the body to deal with stress. Its action in the body is due to its stimulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary axis to secrete adrenal corticotropic hormone (ACTH). ACTH has the ability to bind directly to brain cells and can affect a variety of behaviors in the body. These behaviors might include motivation, vitality, performance and arousal.
·  Relieves stress
·  Enhances athletic performance
·  Tonic for well-being
·  Immune enhancer
·  Stimulant
·  Hypoglycemic (reduces blood sugar)
·  Improves cognitive function


Bee Pollen
is used as a natural "energy food" –probably due to the combination of small amounts of various vitamins and minerals involved in energy metabolism.
·  Increased energy
·  Prolonged endurance
·  Promotes weight loss
·  Immune system stimulation


Green tea
contains catechins, which are known to possess potent antioxidant activity, they may provide beneficial health effects by protecting the body from the damaging effects of oxidative damage from free radicals. The powerful antioxidant activity about 25-100 times more potent than vitamins C and E.  A number of chronic disease states have been associated with free radical induced oxidative damage, including cancer, heart disease, suppressed immune function and accelerated aging.
·  Anti-atherogenic / Reduces cholesterol & triglycerides
·  Reduces blood clotting
·  Enhances immune function
·  Enhances weight loss


Piper Longum
is often recommended as a "thermogenic" compound for increasing metabolic rate – an effect that may be related to its ability to dilate blood vessels and cause a local sensation of "warming."  It has also been used for stimulating circulation, aiding digestion, and relieving pain.
·  Digestive aid (stimulates gastric secretions)
·  Arthritis pain reliever
·  Raises metabolic rate
·  Reduces allergic symptoms
·  Prevents migraine headaches


Pyruvate
is a "salt" form of pyruvic acid - a 3-carbon molecule derived from the breakdown of glucose.  In the body, glucose (6 carbons) is split into 2 pyruvic acid molecules (3 carbons each) in the end stages of cellular glycolysis. When enough oxygen is present, pyruvic acid can be converted into acetyl CoA in the mitochondrion of the cell to produce energy. Because glucose (the chief sugar used by cells for energy) is broken down body into pyruvic acid, an increased level of pyruvic acid in the body can enhance a cell’s ability to generate energy.
·  Enhances weight loss and reduces weight regain
·  Decreases appetite
·  Elevated energy levels
·  Increased endurance levels
·  Increases muscle glycogen
·  Reduces fatigue


77 Trace Minerals
plant derived minerals play an important role in providing the essential minerals our bodies are missing from poor eating habits and depleted foods. Minerals initiate, regulate and control every organ and function in our bodies. Minerals are the catalysts that support enzyme function, protein digestion, metabolism, cellular electrolyte impulses, and billions of chemical reactions that keeps the body functioning properly.
