Top Secret Nutrition - Cal-Trim 1000 Calorie Management Formula - 60 Capsules
Top Secret Nutrition Cal-Trim 1000 contains 100% Natural and Organic NeOpuntia. Top Secret Nutrition Cal-Trim is a cheat meal ally, a calorie management formula to be taken with meals. Top Secret Nutrition Cal-Trim 1000 is a unique combination of ingredients designed to be taken with fatty and starchy meals to support weight management utilizing a novel 3-pronged formulation.
- NEOPUNTIA - Neopuntia is a 100% natural lipophilic (fat attracting) fiber made from the dehydrated leaves of the Opuntia ficus indica cactus. Lipophilic properties refer to Neopuntia's ability to attract and bind to fats when in their presence. Research has suggested the Neopuntia has fat binding properties.
- INNOSLIM - InnoSlim is a proprietary all natural plant derived compound extracted from highly fractionated Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membranaceus. Research shows that in animal studies panax notoginseng has been associated with weight loss. It is believed that this effect was the result of inhibiting the fat digesting pancreatic lipase activity. Additionally, in vitro and in vivo studies have demonstrated that the ginsenosides in InnoSlim may reduce glucose absorption.
- WHITE KIDNEY BEAN EXTRACT (Phaseolus vulgaris) - Research suggests taht Phaseolus Vulgaris inhibits the digestive enzyme amylase. Amylase plays a key role in the digestion of foods. As a digestive enzyme, amylase is required for the metabolism of starchy carbohydrates. Research suggests that Phaseolus vulgaris extract when taken before meals may produce decrements in body weight and decrements in fat mass in the face of maintained lean body mass.
CAL-TRIM 1000 is a unique combination of ingredients designed to be taken with fatty and starchy meals. This supplement supports weight management by utilizing a novel 3-pronged formulation to affect the absorption of fats, starchy carbohydrates, and glucose.
The name of this supplement refers to trimming calories. While the CAL-TRIM portion of the name may be obvious, the 1000 may not be so clear. What we commonly call "calories" are actually called kilocalories in the scientific world. No matter what you call it, a calorie is a unit of energy. A food calorie, or kilocalorie, contains 4,184 joules and represents the exact amount of energy required to raise the temperature of one kilogram of water by one degree Celsius.
So what does this mean for your body? Well, you need a certain amount of calories to survive, but an excess of calories can cause you to gain weight.
HOW DO CALORIES BECOME FAT?
The simple answer is, you eat more calories than you burn, but it is a bit more complex. Digestion and absorption are critical components to this process. Let's look at the digestion and absorption of fat, protein, and carbohydrates.
When we eat food, our body begins the digestion process in the mouth, the food then goes to the stomach, and finally it passes to the small intestine where it is ultimately absorbed into the blood stream. Once in the blood stream, the calories can be: used by the body, stored as fat, or excreted. Top Secret's objective with CAL-TRIM 1000 is to affect the number of calories that are absorbed after a meal.
THE CAL-TRIM 1000 TEAM:
NEOPUNTIA: Is a 100% natural lipophilic (fat attracting) fiber made from the dehydrated leaves of the Opuntia ficus-indica cactus. Lipophilic properties refer to NeOpuntia's ability to attract and bind to fats when in their presence. Research has suggested that NeOpuntia has fat binding properties.1 In more scientific terms, lipophilicity, or fat-liking, refers to the ability of a chemical compound to dissolve in fats, oils, lipids, and non-polar solvents. Lipophilic substances have a strong affinity with fats, which induces interactions between these lipophilic compounds and fats.
In vitro tests have shown that the soluble and insoluble fibers contained in NeOpuntia physically interact with fats:
- Step 1 : Hydrophobic interaction takes place between fats and insoluble fibers
- Step 2 : Primary interactions are stabilized thanks to the soluble fibers (polysaccharides that create a fluid gel, stable at any pH)
NeOpuntia can consequently be introduced to reduce fat absorption into the body. However, how much fat can be reduced and how it will affect each individual is difficult to determine given the number of variables involved.
Fat - Binding of fat to NeOpuntia to affect absorption
INNOSLIM: Is a proprietary, all-natural, plant-derived compound extracted from highly fractionated Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membranaceus. Research has suggested that in animal studies, Panax notoginseng has been associated with weight loss. It is believed that this effect is the result of inhibition of the fat-digesting pancreatic lipase activity. Additionally, in vitro and in vivo studies have demonstrated that the ginsenosides in InnoSlim may reduce glucose absorption.
Fat - Inhibition of the fat-digesting enzyme lipase to affect absorption
Glucose - Reduction of glucose absorption in small intestine
WHITE KIDNEY BEAN EXTRACT: Also known as Phaseolus vulgaris, has been shown to inhibit the digestive enzyme amylase. Amylase plays a key role in the digestion of foods. As a digestive enzyme, amylase is required for the metabolism of starchy carbohydrates. Research suggests that Phaseolus vulgaris extract, when taken before meals, may produce decrements in body weight and decrements in fat mass in the face of maintained lean body mass.
Starchy Carbohydrates - Inhibition of the digestive enzyme amylase to affect metabolism of starchy carbohydrates
