The active ingredients
CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) is a naturally occurring, polyunsaturated fatty acid found in the meat of ruminants (cows, sheep, etc.) and dairy from these animals. CLA is also a natural part of our diet. It is formed in the rumen of grazing cattle in a process where linoleic acid from grass is transformed into CLA. Some of the best sources of CLA are beef and dairy products like milk, cheese, and yoghurt. There are many different variants of CLA which also have different effects in the body. BioActive CLA 24/7 contains the CLA isomers T10, C12 & C9,T11. The CLA used in BioActive CLA 24/7 comes from the herb Safflower. CLA is a GRAS-certified (Generally Recognized as Safe) food additive.
About Green tea extract
Green tea extract is particularly popular among dieters. It has a high content of the active compound epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Natural green tea extract with EGCG helps to enhance metabolism and contributes to fat oxidation.
Carnitine is a non-essential, water-soluble amino acid. "Non-essential" in this context means that the body, under normal circumstances, is able to synthesize carnitine in the liver and kidneys using the amino acid lysine. If the body was not capable of producing carnitine, it would be a B vitamin.
The body's own production of carnitine is assisted by another amino acid, methionine, and vitamin C. In addition, iron, vitamin B6, and niacin are involved in several enzymatic processes. The L-form of carnitine is the only one that is of value to humans.
Most of the body's carnitine supply is stored in muscle tissue, including the heart muscle. Normal seminal fluid also contains carnitine.
Our carnitine levels drop with increasing age.
One of the roles of carnitine in the body is its contribution to the mitochondrial oxidation of long-chain fatty acids.
75% of our carnitine is obtained from the diet. The largest contributing dietary source of carnitine is dairy and red meat, with lamb, game, and beef containing the most. Carnitine is only found in limited quantities in plant protein and for that reason vegetarians (and vegans) often have much lower levels of this amino acid.
The carnitine used in BioActive CLA 24/7 is pure, nature-identical L-carnitine.
Avoid sugar cravings
Chromium supports normal blood sugar levels. Chromium is a trace element involved in the normal turnover (metabolism) of macro-nutrients from the food, which is a key factor in the conversion of sugar and fat in the body.
Blood sugar is a common term for blood levels of glucose, which is the body's energy source. The glucose content rises after a meal and subsequently decreases as the glucose is absorbed by the cells. The risk of sugar cravings are greatest when the blood sugar is low. Therefore, it is desirable to achieve a daily blood glucose curve without excessive volatility.
Bio-Chromium is organically bound chromium from chromium yeast (ChromoPrecise®) with up to 10x better bioavailability than other chromium sources.
Avoid the “yo-yo effect” of dieting
Dieters often find that their weight bounces up and down like a yo-yo. The weight they lose is quickly gained. They try a new attempt at losing weight, and the same happens. It can go on like that for ages.
A CLA supplement with green tea extract, however, can enhance your metabolic rate and help your body oxidize fat more easily. This will eventually help you to a firmer and leaner body.
Combine with exercise
It is generally a good idea to combine green tea extract with regular exercise. With exercise, you stimulate your muscles to burn fat, making it easier for you to see results. It is important to focus less on weight and more on firmness and appearance. Do not forget, muscle weighs more than fat. When you replace fat with lean muscle, you may not lose much. In fact, you may gain a little. But since it is muscle mass, it looks good and helps you stay lean in the future. After all, muscle mass burns fat, whereas fat just sits there.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has evaluated the evidence behind green tea and has acknowledged the following claims:
- Natural green tea extract with EGCG helps to enhance metabolism and contributes to fat oxidation.
