Weight Loss Supplements
Our supplements are 100% vegetarian and are not available over-the-counter. They are manufactured specifically for our practice, with the highest pharmaceutical standards. The quality of our products cannot be matched by anything over-the-counter.
Our Metabolic Booster contains the potent antioxidant alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) which is found naturally in our body’s cells where energy is produced. It converts glucose (blood sugar) into energy. In other words, it enhances our ability to metabolize food into energy.
African mango (Irvingia)
Irvingia Gabonensis is an extract which is derived from the seeds of the African mango. This extract alone has been shown to assist with weight loss and lowering cholesterol.
Leptin is a protein hormone which plays a key role in regulating energy intake and energy expenditure, including appetite and metabolism. We will select a combination of supplements to increase the sensitivity of your Leptin. As body fat goes down and you are reaching your ideal body weight, Leptin should be low and highly sensitive.
Our Carb Regulator contains chromium picolinate which is essential for normal sugar and fat metabolism. It has been found to help control and reduce excess body fat. When taken in supplement form, it has been found to lower blood sugar and insulin levels as well as raise HDL (“good cholesterol”).
Glutamine is the body’s most abundant amino acid. It keeps muscles functioning properly and helps reduce muscle deterioration. It is made in the muscle cells, and during intense workouts, it is used up quickly and the demand for it exceeds the body’s ability to make it so we need to ingest it from foods or supplements. In an overweight individual it is even more important to ingest enough of it because the body will break down the muscle tissue to get the extra amino acid and this can lead to a loss of muscle mass which is detrimental to health and your weight loss efforts.
Carnitine is critical for energy formation and an active metabolism. It helps the body use fat to turn into energy. Carnitine is made in the liver and kidneys however some people cannot make enough of it.
L-arginine is an amino acid that increases oxygen uptake by the tissues, especially muscle. It is great to take after a work out to enhance muscle recovery. We recomnd it for anyone who is seriously training (i.e marathon, races) you can also enhance sexual function.
Melatonin is a wonderful hormone not just for sleep but also acts as a powerful anitoxident that can aid weight loss.
Probiotics are often overlooked for being the multifaceted supplement they are. Creating a large balance of good bacteria in the gut greatly decreases inflammation. Our Probiotics can enhance progress with weightloss.
People who are overweight often have low levels of vitamin D and this can impede weight loss progress.
