Known by Nutritionists for its powerfully beneficial effects on the liver and digestive system, primarily due to its high levels of cynarin, a compound that lowers blood lipids (cholesterol etc) and total serum levels, and by doing so, increases the ratio of good cholesterol (HDL) in the blood. Artichokes also boost the production of bile by the liver, which in turn helps to break down fat. This is why the French love this vegetable, and eat it as a starter, to help the liver deal with those richer later courses. Have you heard of the Mediterranean diet? This is a major constituent in that phenomenon that keeps the French, Italian sand Spanish looking good and healthy, and the Northern Europeans, whose diet consists of sugar and fat and quite frankly junk food (marketed as “low fat” alternatives) cannot manage to maintain the same body imnage or health status as their southern European cousins.
Green, black and oolong teas are all derived from the same plant -
The nutrients in these berries have been found useful during weight loss programs, along with normal cholesterol level maintenance due to the high amount of antioxidants they contain. Acai berries have 15-

Cinnamon is widely recognised as a metabolism booster, which assists the body in the faster burning of calories and fat stores for use as energy. It also has a regulatory effect on blood sugar levels and simultaneously increases insulin levels in the body (helping to control both the appetite and cravings). It imitates the biological activity of insulin and increases the metabolism of glucose. Since high blood sugar levels can lead to increased storage of fat by the body, cinnamon helps to prevent this, thereby facilitating weight loss. Cinnamon prevents the transformation of metabolised sugar into fat; makes you feel fuller for longer by delaying the passing of food from the stomach nto the intestine; helps process carbohydrates more efficiently; is rich in manganese, iron, calcium and fibre; helps with stomach troubles; supports healthy cholesterol levels.

This is a herb that grows in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest. It contains significant amounts of guaranine (the active constituent that is virtually identical to caffeine) and has thus been used for centuries by indigenous tribes to help reduce hunger, relieve fatigue and treat obesity. Guarana is a valuable aid for temporarily increasing energy levels. Its ability to "free" fatty acids (fat cells) into the bloodstream in order to be broken down and used up for energy makes it a natural choice for effective fat loss products. It also has a mild diuretic effect. We use an extract form of guarana, enhancing these beneficial actions.
A powerful natural stimulant found in many foods such as tea, coffee, cola and chocolate. Used to offset hunger, appetite, boost energy levels and mental clarity. Combined with the other ingredients in this formula, it has a metabolic stimulating and mild diuretic effect.
The powder and extract of bitter orange (and bitter orange peel) are used in dietary supplements as an aid to fat loss and as an appetite suppressant. For enhanced effectiveness, it is combined with other support herbs to boost metabolic rate and thermogenesis. Bitter orange contains the amphetamine metabolites N-

Kelp is a type of large brown seaweed (algae) -
This vitamin is required for: blood and haemoglobin formation; calcium and magnesium metabolism; conversion of glycogen to glucose (to be used as energy); energy production; metabolism of foods (protein, carbohydrates and fats); and zinc absorption. It has been included in this formula for energy production and as a mild diuretic.
This has been added as a digestive and internal cleansing aid. It is a powerful detoxifying and purifying agent. It breaks down mucous within the body and in so doing, improves the health and function of the vital organs of the body, such as the kidneys, bladder and liver. It also prevents excessively alkaline urine. It oxidizes and thins the blood, which is important in preventing high blood pressure. It also promotes digestion, assimilation and elimination, all the while neutralising any toxic substances that enter the body. Cider vinegar has been found to neutralise harmful bacteria that may be found in certain foods. When a mixture of cider vinegar and water is taken before a meal, it has been known to prevent digestive upsets. As well as helping you to metabolise fat , the vinegar is said to reduce your hunger and cravings and help control blood sugar and insulin levels following a carbohydrate-
This is the only product sourced out of piperine to obtain a patented status for its ability to increase the bioavailability of nutritional compounds. Secondly, it is the only source from piperine to have undergone clinical studies in the U.S. to substantiate its safety and efficacy for nutritional use. It is included in this formula to increase the actions and effectiveness of the other ingredients.
This is an essential trace mineral that plays an important role in our bodies' normal carbohydrate metabolism, which converts foods we eat into sugars. Chromium helps insulin (a natural hormone that is released in response to eating carbohydrates) to properly "transport" these sugars into cells to be stored as energy. It also supports stable blood sugar levels -
Chromium picolinate, the most absorbable form of chromium, is one of the hottest slimming supplements around. It has long been recognised as a natural remedy for elevated blood cholesterol and triglycerides, but it is now more popular for its weight loss effects. Aside from the benefits mentioned above, this is largely because studies have shown that this mineral can help trim fat and build muscle. In one study conducted at Bemidji State University (Minnesota, USA), one group of athletes took 200mcg daily, while another group took a placebo. After 6 weeks, the athletes gained 44% more lean body mass, whereas the placebo group was only 7%.
Similarly overweight volunteers at San Antonio weight loss centre (USA) were given chromium supplements or a placebo for an average of 72 days, without any particular diet or exercise regimen. The volunteers taking the supplements lost an average of 4.2 fat lbs and gained 1.4 lbs in lean mass. While those who were taking the placebo found that their body changes were negligible.
About 90% of the population does not get enough chromium from food (food sources include broccoli and shellfish). To make matters worse, the high-
Many researchers believe that chromium deficiency may be a contributing factor to the increase in type II diabetes cases. New research has examined the role that chromium can play in helping to reduce food intake, suppress appetite and minimise food cravings
Chinese herbalists have relied on rhubarb rhizomes and roots for thousands of years. They contain powerful anthraquinones and tannins that act as mild stimulant laxatives and astringents, respectively. Rhubarb also acts as a mild stimulant for the production of oestrogen, and is of value for the menopause and oestrogen deficiency. It also contains some vital phyto-

Also known to be superfruits due to their wide array opf nutrients, blackcurrant's were used during world war 2 as a replacement for oranges ands other fruits rich in vitamin c. These berries are in fact far superior to those Naval oranges and other fruits that they were substituting (in terms of vitamin C profile). In fact blackcurrant contain more than 3 times as much vitamin C per gram than Oranges-
A recent scientific study revealed that the natural chemicals and compounds found in blackcurrants may help to balance the impact that exercise can have on the body. Researchers n New Zealand also uncovered a compound, which may help to improve breathing in some types of asthma. British scientists are now investigating how blackcurrants may hold the key in helping to slow the progression of Alzheimer's.
Rosehips: The red fruits found on Roses. A fantastic source of both Vitamin C and bioflavenoids. There is as much Vitamin C in a cup of Rosehips as 40 oranges! They also contain Vitamis A, B1 to 3, and K. The Bioflavenoids, present in the pulp and fruit rind, exert a synergistic action to Vitamin C, advancing its absorption rate.
From a health perspective, rosehips are known for their high content of bioavailable vitamin c. There is approximately 1,700 m gof vitamin C in 100g of dried rosehips.
Studies show that rosehips may reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis and help sore, achy joints to function better. This fruit is certainly no stranger to the world of alternative medicine and could be described as a nutritional superstar with its high iron and vitamin content. It has an antioxidant Potential even greater than that of blueberries!
