Amino acids also provide a readily available form of nitrogen, a critical element that forms various compounds such as neurotransmitters and creatine. Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12 is also critical in the production of neurotransmitters.
Neurotransmitters help various parts of the brain communicate with each other; this includes the hypothalamus. In fact, you can actually control and change hunger and fullness patterns, naturally by regulating a person’s hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is a section of the brain responsible for the production of many of the body’s essential hormones and chemical substances that help control different cells and organs. The hormones from the hypothalamus govern physiologic functions such as temperature regulation, thirst, hunger, sleep, mood, sex drive, and the release of other hormones within the body. This area of the brain houses the pituitary gland and other glands in the body. The hypothalamus steers the body to keep a certain "set point" weight. Therefore, if the hypothalamus is not working appropriately it will crave foods and increase hunger levels, falsely.
Leptin is produced by your body’s fat cells. The more body fat they carry, the more leptin they produced. Leptin is carried by the bloodstream into your brain, where it sends a signal to the hypothalamus — the part that controls when and how much you eat. The fat cells use leptin to tell your brain how much body fat they carry. High levels of leptin tell your brain that you have plenty of fat stored, while low levels tell your brain that fat stores are low and that you need to eat. So, essentially high leptin levels decrease the amount of fat you store Modify set-point weight by adequately nourishing the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus also steers the body to keep a certain set point weight as it controls and regulates hunger and fullness patterns in response to the body’s true or falsely perceived weight.
Decreases the amount of fat you store. By controlling the leptin levels in your body, these metabolic drops may control the amount of food that you store as fat as well. Leptin is the messenger that tells the body to start or stop storing fat. So, in controlling your leptin levels you can potentially control and decrease the amount of fat you store. Once your stored fat is reduced, you decrease leptin signals as well, which may lead to less stored fat.
Leptin Resistance = More Stored Fat
lso improves digestion and energizes the adrenal/thyroid complex
CLA conjugated limoleic acid - family of at least 28 isomers of limoleic acid which may support a reduction in body fat while preserving muscle tissue.
Ginger Root Extract - Contains properties that aid in digestion and reduces inflammation
Maca Root- a medicinal root rich in antioxidants that aids in increasing energy, mood and memory, among other things.
African Mango- Can help regulate leptin levels, as well as being a powerful anti-microbial and antioxidant.
Rhodiola Root Extract- a medicinal root that can increase energy, and aid in stimulating your body’s metabolism
Astragalus Root- The herb works on the aging process by protecting the cells in the body from the degradation that occurs with the passing of time.
7 Amino Acids (L-ornithine HCI, L-gycine, L-tyrosine, L-serine,L-carnitine base, L-arginine HCI, L-glutamine, beta alanine) - Essential amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. They have important benefits including reducing fatigue, increasing fat loss, boosting cognitive function, lowering inflammation, speeding up muscle growth, extending endurance, and supporting the bodies repair process.
Niacin (Vitamin B3), Vitamins B6 and B12- B Vitamins are also essential in energy metabolism and are important for energy and fighting infection. They also play a role in cognitive function. Vitamin B6 helps make neurotransmitters needed for brain function, and Vitamin B12 keeps your nerve and blood cells healthy. B3 or niacin is vital for DNA synthesis, tryptophan metabolism, oxidation-reduction reactions, and energy production.
