Pacific Health Labs Forze GPS Bar Caramel Chocolate (40g)
Pacific Health Labs Forze GPS Bar Caramel Chocolate is the first weight management tool designed specifically for athletes. Forze GPS uses a patented blend of healthy fats, protein and calcium, plus added fiber to activate the body's natural appetite control signal. Forze GPS is designed to be taken between meals, as a snack replacement and to leave you feeling satisfied longer. Forze GPS helps control your hunger so you achieve your performance goals.
Forze GPS is the first and only nutrition tool formulated especially to help athletes reach and maintain their optimal performance weight. The key to getting leaner is appetite regulation. Specifically, your objective is to sustain a diet that satisfies your appetite each day without supplying more calories than you need. Most people, and even many athletes, find it difficult to satisfy their appetite each day without eating more calories than they need and consequently accumulating excess body fat stores.
Forze GPS solves this problem by satisfying your appetite in a calorically efficient manner. Simply put: Forze GPS provides more satiety (or appetite satisfaction) with fewer calories than any other food. By adding Forze GPS to your diet you will naturally eat less over the course of the day without feeling hungry, and as a result you will become leaner and perform better.
To understand how Forze GPS works, you must first know a little about how the body regulates appetite. The physiology of appetite control is complex and multifaceted, and scientists still have much to learn about it. What we do know is that the two main centers of appetite control are the gut and the brain. The presence of food, and specific nutrients, in the gut generates chemicals and signals that travel to the brain, where the feeling of satiety emerges, resulting in the loss of the desire to eat.
The most important chemical in appetite control is cholecystokinin (CCK), a natural protein produced by the body. The primary action of CCK is to close down the valve from the stomach to the GI tract, slowing the movement of food from the stomach. When food stays in the stomach longer you feel fuller for extended periods of time. Additionally, CCK acts in the appetite centers of the brain to extend the feeling of satiety.
One of the key discoveries that researchers have made since CCK was discovered more than 40 years ago is that certain nutrients stimulate CCK, hence satiety, more effectively than others. For example, you have to consume 10 times as many sugar calories as fat calories to get the same level of satiety. The nutrients that act most powerfully on CCK are soy and casein proteins, calcium, and certain unsaturated fats. A food or beverage that contains adequate amounts of these nutrients, and few calories from simple carbohydrates and saturated fats, will satisfy the appetite with the fewest number of calories possible. And that’s exactly what Forze GPS does.
Gastric Peptide Stimulators
The “GPS” in Forze GPS stands for “Gastric Peptide Stimulators,” which is a fancy name for nutrients that affect CCK in special ways. There are three main ways that nutrients can affect CCK to enhance satiety. A specific nutrient may:
- Stimulate the release of CCK in the gut
- Extend the action of CCK
- Increase the sensitivity of the brain to CCK
Each of the active GPS ingredients works in a different one of these three ways. Specifically, soy and casein proteins act primarily to stimulate the release of CCK in the gut, which slows the emptying of food from the stomach and sends a signal to the appetite control center of the brain. Certain unsaturated fats act primarily to keep CCK levels high after food is consumed, so that hunger doesn’t return as quickly. And calcium increases the sensitivity of tissue cells to CCK, so that the same amount of CCK produces more satiety.
Because it contains optimal amounts of each of these nutrients and few carbs and saturated fats, Forze GPS yields as much satiety as a large snack with much fewer calories. The results of numerous studies on the Forze GPS formulation have demonstrated that it:
- Extends the feeling of fullness for up to 3.5 hours after eating
- Decreases food intake up to 20%
- Slows gastric emptying
- Acts on the appetite centers of the brain with 4-6 minutes.
Best of all, Forze GPS achieves all of these results with ingredients from real foods. In Forze GPS, nature and science have come together to create the ultimate nutrition tool to help athletes get leaner and perform better.
