Anybody who has tried to lose weight knows there is a lot more to healthy weight management than simply dropping pounds. Lasting and healthful weight loss may need to include consideration of everything from metabolism to lean body mass percentages to stress levels. But don’t get overwhelmed, NSP has a full line of complementary natural products to support every aspect of your weight-management goals.
Conjugated Linoleic Acid, or CLA, is a mixture of important fatty acids with health and weight benefits. CLA can help modify body composition by sustaining lean muscle tissue and enhancing lipolysis. CLA is a patented ingredient for fat reduction. It has also been shown to be effective in maintaining cholesterol levels already within the normal range.
Every dieter knows the dreaded weight plateau. After consistent progress your body hits a “set point,” and no matter what you do, you can’t seem to drop any more weight. 7-Keto is a safe, natural metabolite of the hormone DHEA that stimulates the thyroid to boost metabolism. Supplementing with 7-Keto may help increase production of T3, a thyroid hormone that plays a role in determining the body’s basal metabolic rate.
No matter your size or shape, chances are you have some unsightly fat deposits, and you want to get rid of them. As we age, the skin and fat tissues age as well, leading to trapped fluid and fat and resulting skin puckering and stretch marks. Cellu-Smooth with Coleus provides nutrients that may support circulation, help mobilize fat for better distribution, and protect against free radical damage to structural skin proteins. One ingredient in this formula, Coleus forskohlii root extract, may cause a shift from a more fatty body mass to a more lean body mass. Cellu- Smooth with Coleus also contains bladderwrack, milk thistle, ginkgo, rhodiola root extract and rhododendron root.
Collatrim Plus powder and Collatrim capsules provide nutrients that help increase lean muscle mass, which can lead to increased fat burning. These formulas contain collagen, which can be broken down into amino acids used to build lean muscle mass.
Garcinia cambogia is the principal ingredient in this herbal formula. Garcinia contains hydroxycitric acid, which inhibits an enzyme that helps the body synthesize fat for storage. Hydroxycitric acid also has been used to promote energy and help to satisfy appetite.
Cortisol is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands in response to stress. Increasing evidence shows a link between cortisol levels and weight gain. Nature’s Cortisol Formula contains Relora® to help the body manage stress and maintain cortisol levels already within the normal range. Other key ingredients—banaba, holy basil, chromium and vanadium—help maintain blood glucose levels already within the normal range. This product also contains DHEA, decaffeinated green tea extract (60% EGCG), l-theanine and calcium ascorbate.
SF is an herbal blend designed to aid your weight-management goals by supporting the body’s intestinal, urinary and digestive systems. SF contains cascara sagrada bark, hawthorn berries, papaya fruit, licorice root, safflower flowers, black walnut hulls, chickweed leaf extract, fennel seeds, parthenium root, gotu kola aerial parts and dandelion root.
