Slim Support combines the clinically studied extracts of the Piper betle leaf and Dolichos biflorus seed (a patent-pending combo called LOWAT), with acetyl-L-carnitine to support proper function of three metabolic hormones: adiponectin, leptin, and ghrelin. These hormones can become imbalanced by genetic mutations or chronic stress, leading to inappropriate appetite and weight gain.
LOWAT works by targeting fat formation and accumulation and by increasing fat burning. The combination of the two herbs has also been clinically shown to boost adiponectin by 15% and reduce grehlin by 17% to support healthy weight management and regulate appetite. Adiponectin is a homone that initiaties the breakdown of fatty acids and regulates blood glucose. Ghrelin is a hormone that acts on brain cells to increase hunger. Study results on LOWAT at 300 mg 3 times daily combined with diet and exercise showed significantly reduced body weight -9.4 lbs compared to -3.9 lbs, a loss 2.4 times greater than placebo at eight weeks.
Acetyl-L-carnitine acts as a shuttle in the mitochondria, bringing in fatty acids to be utilized as an energy source. It also may support glucose tolerance, which in turn may support leptin hormone levels. If a decreased sensitivity to leptin occurs, the result may be an inability to detect satiety despite high caloric intake, which could lead to obesity. Therefore, Slim Support may help control appetite, satiety and fat metabolism as part of a healthy weight management program.
