Support for Healthy Weight Management
Metabolic Lean™ by Douglas Laboratories is a novel weight management formula that includes three branded and clinically studied ingredients-- Meratrim™ plant extract, Capsimax™ capsicum extract, and Zychrome® chromium complex. This special combination of ingredients may improve lipolysis, thermogenic activity, and insulin function. The ingredients in Metabolic Lean™ also help to increase adiponectin levels which facilitate proper fat metabolism and glucose regulation.
Meratrim™ is a proprietary plant extract blend for weight management derived from two plants, Sphaeranthus indicus and Garcinia mangostana, traditionally used in Southeast Asian culture. Meratrim has been shown to significantly reduce body weight, BMI, and waist circumference within 8 weeks when used in combination with a diet and exercise plan. Meratrim appears to achieve this by modulating the accumulation of fat while simultaneously increasing fat burning. Toxicological studies on Meratrim have demonstrated a wide margin of safety.
Capsimax™ capsicum extract is a proprietary encapsulated form of premium, highly concentrated natural capsicum fruit extract manufactured from hot red peppers. Capsaicinoids are a group of compounds which cause the “heat” found in hot peppers. In fact, over the past 30 years, studies including animal and human subjects support the potential of red hot capsicum and capsaicinoids as a safe, effective ingredient to aid in weight management. Benefits of capsicum and capsaicinoids in animal and human studies have shown that it helps manage appetite, supports healthy metabolism to burn calories, and helps induce thermogenesis. Capsimax™ is a patent-pending encapsulated form of premium, highly concentrated natural capsicum extract. Using a proprietary matrix, Capsimax capsicum extract gives users the maximum effectiveness of capsaicinoids without any oral or gastric irritation, thus solving the problem of capsicum compliance.
Zychrome™ is a unique, patent-pending chromium complex consisting of chromium, niacin and L-cysteine (chromium dinicocysteinate). Seventeen chromium complexes were screened in preclinical studies in order to arrive at the complex found in Zychrome™. Zychrome is more efficacious than other forms of chromium in supporting healthy fasting glucose levels, glycated hemoglobin levels (HbA1c), insulin levels, CRP, MCP-1, ICAM-1 and oxidative stress levels. These effects of Zychrome are mediated by the regulation of cell signal transduction pathways associated with insulin function, glucose control and vascular inflammation. Zychrome significantly modulates the levels of insulin and insulin resistance as well as the inflammatory cytokine TNF and protein carbonyl content, a marker of oxidative stress. Toxicological studies have demonstrated a wide margin of safety.
