~ 061609 Safe, Natural Weight Loss Product Now Works Even Harder to Fight Fat

Business Wire

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jun 12, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Life Extension(R) has combined the patented plant extract, Integra-Lean(TM) Irvingia, with a new Calorie Control Complex to fight fat using seven biological mechanisms.

Irvingia, an extract of the West African mango fruit Irvingia gabonensis, functions via four biological mechanisms to promote weight loss.

-- Irvingia shuts down the appetite and shrinks bloated fat cells by reversing resistance to leptin. Leptin signals the appetite control center in the brain to shut down when sufficient calories have been consumed.

-- Leptin resistance inhibits the body's natural ability to break down fat; Irvingia reverses this resistance, allowing fat cells to shrink in size.

-- Irvingia increases fat cell secretion of adiponectin, a hormone that supports insulin sensitivity and heart health.

-- It cuts the amount of sugar converted to fat in the body by blocking activity of the glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase enzyme.

-- And Irvingia limits the amount of carbohydrates the body can absorb by inhibiting the amylase digestive enzyme.

In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled human study, participants taking Integra-Lean(TM) Irvingia lost 28 pounds and 6 inches of belly fat in just 10 weeks. By increasing the mechanisms of action involved, Enhanced Irvingia with Calorie Control Complex provides even greater ammunition for fighting the battle of the bulge.

New Enhanced Irvingia with Calorie Control Complex pairs the patented Irvingia extract with white kidney bean, seaweed and green tea extracts. The seaweed extract inhibits the absorption of consumed sugars. The kidney bean extract further blocks starch breakdown and sugar absorption. And the green tea phytosome boosts metabolism to burn fat faster, without the side effects of stimulants.
