Let me start off by saying I am not one to talk a lot about weight loss supplements but when we received this one in our store (nutrition house) I was very impressed. It’s called CLA Burn by Alora. The reason I love this product is because it has all of the ingredients that I would recommend by itself and this product has them all! Let me start by saying that this product has fat burners, energy boosters and stress busters! I am going to break it down a little for you and why I love this product. First it is All natural, Soy free, GMO free, Gluten free and sweetened with Stevia not artificial sweeteners. Let’s look at the ingredients and know that they are all standardized extracts which means they guarantee their potency:
CLA (2000mg): CLA is derived from 100% pure safflower oil. It inhibits the absorption of fat by blocking an enzyme called lipoprotein which helps the body absorb fat into cells. Think of fat melting this way: When you put fat in a frying pan and turn on the fire, what happens? The fat heats up and melts. This process happens in the body when fat is broken down or lipolysis occurs (lipo = fat; lysis = break down), and energy is made to create heat, or thermogenesis. That’s how exercise works to melt fat: Exercise expends energy, which creates heat. It reduces body fat while maintaining lean body mass.
Green Coffee Bean (350mg): Extracted from the green coffee bean (unroasted coffee beans) this contains the active ingredient Chlorogenic Acid (CA), which helps to burn fat. (Most of the CA is removed when roasting coffee beans.) Studies show that it can reduce the absorption of carbohydrates from the digestive tract, which lowers blood sugar and insulin spikes. Some studies have shown that CA can reduce fat absorbed from the foods you eat as well as reduce fat stored in the liver. It can also improve the function of the fat burning hormone adiponectin. On top of this CA has also been shown to drastically improve cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
Cissus Quadrangularis (250mg): This supplement has been shown to decrease body fat composition, decrease waist circumference, improve blood sugar control, and reduce appetite in humans. It may also reduce the absorption of fats and carbohydrates, blocking these calories from entering the blood stream through the intestines. It also may further increase lean muscle mass and promote muscle building, helping to support increased metabolism.
Green Tea Extract (200mg): I talk a lot about green tea for its anti-oxidant properties as well as to reduce stress and increase energy but it is well known for its fat burning properties. Know that you would have to drink 5-7 cups of green tea to get somewhat close to this amount.
L-Theanine (50mg): Extracted from green tea, L-Theanine helps to reduce stress levels. Remember that it is difficult to lose weight when you are stressed because your body is in a fight or flight response and it stores fat automatically because it doesn’t know how long you are going to run or fight so it HAS to store fat for future energy. L-Theanine is also a known fat burner.
Astragin (50mg) (Astragalus & Ginseng): Increases bioavailability of the above ingredients as well as increase energy and support the immune system. The increased bioavailability of all the nutrients present in this formula makes it even more efficient at producing the desired effects of fat burning, increased energy, endurance and recovery.
What a great synergistic combination of ingredients to help you lose weight! If you are interested in trying this, let me know and I will let you know what nutrition house store carries them that is closest to you.
