The Magic Of Chocolate Distilled Into A Tablet
Theobroma cacao was named by the 17th century naturalist Linnaeus. Europeans first encountered cacao in the 16th century when Spanish explorers first encountered the Aztec civilization in South America. The Aztecs restricted use of the hot bitter beverage they called chocolati, prepared from the dried cacao bean, to use by warriors, nobility and priests, who revered it for its reputed ability to confer wisdom and vitality.
Chocolate as we know it was developed in Europe in the 19th century, by combining fatty cocoa butter with cocoa powder, sugar, and sometimes milk virtually all the calories come from the sugar, milk, and cocoa butter. Chocolate production and consumption is now worldwide, with the average American consuming nearly 12 pounds a year. It is highly associated with romance, and many have considered it a mild aphrodisiac. Chocolate is craved more than any food, and frequently eaten as a comfort food during times of stress or depression. Women also frequently crave chocolate during their premenstrual time in particular.
Scientists have identified over 300 compounds in the cocoa bean, including all the major vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, as well as saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fatty acids. It is a particularly rich source of the mineral magnesium, and the amino acid tryptophane, precursor to the brain substances serotonin, and melatonin.
Other substances found in chocolate, such as phenylethylamine, theobromine, and anandamide, have been associated with supporting healthy moods. It also contains lots of polyphenolsthe heart healthy antioxidants of red wine and grape seeds.
Cocoa, coffee, tea, guarana, kola nuts, and maté all contain compounds known as methylxanthines, which all have energizing qualities to varying degrees. The predominant methylxanthine in cocoa beans is theobromine, which derives its name from the Latin nomenclature of the cacao tree. Cocoa beans also contain a very small amount of caffeine.
Theobromine is also found in smaller quantities in tea, and the South American stimulating herb known as maté, but it is found in greatest amounts in cocoa and chocolate. Theobromine has only onetenth the stimulant activity of caffeine, but has subtle and sustained effects in support of healthy moods, energy, and appetite. Like the other methylxanthines, it is also thermogenic, meaning that it supports burning of calories to produce heat.?
How does SlenderLean help support weight management and appetite?
Using modern science to unlock the secrets of Natures ancient magic, substances from two tropical trees, the Cacao tree (Theobroma cacao meaning food of the gods), and Cinnamomun zeylanicum, whose dried inner bark supplies the spice cinnamon, along with the amazing extract of Arctic Golden Root (Rhodiola rosea), Life Plus researchers have created
SlenderLean a breakthrough product for the nutritional support of healthy moods, energy, appetite, and weight management, as part of a complete program of diet and exercise. This completely unique and patent-pending product is the culmination of many years of research, which have resulted in a proprietary botanical blend that can never be duplicated.
Like its xanthine cousins caffeine and theophylline (the predominant methylxanthine in tea), theobromine inhibits the enzyme that breaks down cyclic adenosine monophosphate (CAMP), thus increasing availability of this high-energy compound that acts on receptors in many cells of the body, including fat and muscle cells. This is thought to be one of the primary mechanisms by which theobromine supports an increase in metabolic rate and the stimulation of fat breakdown (lipolysis). Each tablet of SlenderLean supplies nearly as much theobromine as a 2 oz serving of sweet dark chocolate
Chemical Structure Of Theobromine
Caffeine has a third methyl group (orange-CH3) bonded to the nitrogen (blue-N) on the left side of the molecule. Each red bond is between two carbon atoms. Oxygen atoms are green.
Cinnamon And Glucose Utilization
Cinnamon is a widely used spice, also known to be rich in antioxidant polyphenols, particularly procyanidin dimers and oligomers (OPCs). One of the polyphenols in cinnamon, known as methylhydroxy chalcone polymer, has been found to have particularly strong activity in the support of healthy blood sugar levels.
Blood sugar that is too high or too low can cause fatigue, mood swings, irritability, and hunger. Eating foods whose carbohydrates are absorbed slowly, such as vegetables, whole grains, beans, meats, and fish are also very helpful in healthy carbohydrate utilization, which is important in reducing craving for sweets and other refined carbohydrates, that can cripple your weight loss program.
The trace mineral chromium is important to the healthy regulation of glucose utilization, and therefore also an important component of SlenderLean. It is an essential mineral (i.e. it must be supplied in the diet) found in concentration of 20 parts per billion in the blood. Chromium supports the activity of certain enzymes, which help in the utilization of glucose and the synthesis of essential lipids in the body. It is necessary for the proper activity of insulin in its function of moving glucose from the blood into cells.
This mineral may also be involved in the synthesis of protein through its binding action with RNA molecules. Chromium is poorly absorbed from the intestinal tract. Only 3% of dietary intake is retained. The amount of chromium stored in the body decreases with age. Diets high in sugars and other refined carbohydrates increase utilization and excretion of chromium from the body.
Chromium supplements may - help maintain lean body mass when used while exercising regularly, although research in this area has been controversial, with some conflicting results between different clinical trials.
Arctic Golden Root (Rhodiola Rosea) And Hormone Sensitive Lipase (Hsl)
Like Theobroma cacao, Rhodiola rosea was named by the great Swedish naturalist Linnaeus, who first published its description in 1725. Traditional systems for supporting health in Asia have used the golden root since the time of the Chinese emperors, who sent expeditions to Siberia to obtain it. Siberians transported the herb down ancient trails to Georgia (in the Caucasus mountains) where they traded it for Georgian wines, honey, garlic, and fruit.
The Vikings were reported to have used the herb to enhance their endurance, and physical and mental strength. Research since World War II has revealed that the roots of this plant are a treasure chest of powerful adaptogensdefined as substances that nonspecifically support innate resilience to physical, mental, emotional, and environmental stress, without disturbing normal biological measurements or functions.
Only plants of the proper species (there are many species of Rhodiola), grown in the proper cold, mountainous environment, harvested at the proper time, and carefully extracted to exacting specifications contain the precise ratios of six distinct groups of complex phytonutrient components necessary for full activity.
Research in Russia and Bulgaria have suggested that Arctic Golden Root extract has the ability to activate a fat breaking down enzyme called hormone sensitive lipase. This enzyme is activated by exercise, and normally requires at least an hour of moderate exercise, such as brisk walking, to be activatedafter which its activity persists for about 12 hours. Soviet clinical studies have shown that the combination of Rhodiola rosea extract together with physical exercise can be a powerful tool in the activation of this lipase enzyme, resulting in enhanced breakdown of stored fat.
A clinical trial done in Bulgaria randomized 121 subjects to either Rhodiola rosea extract or a placebo, and tested serum free fatty acid levels at rest, and after one hour of exercise. The Rhodiola group had a 6% greater serum fatty acid level at rest, and a 44% greater level after exercise, indicating increased activation of lipase (fatbusting enzyme) by the combination of Rhodiola and exercise vs. exercise alone.
The extract also has shown synergy with calorie restricted dietanother placebo controlled clinical study done at the Georgian State Hospital (in the former Soviet Union) with 130 overweight patients showed that the intake of tablets of R. rosea extract led to a mean weight loss of 19 pounds (11% reduction of body fat), compared to only an 8 pound loss by the placebo group on exactly the same diet.
Further research needs to be done to confirm these exciting initial findings. Because theobromine also activates lipolysis (fat breakdown) and thermogenesis (cellular heat production), the precise combination of these phytonutrients in SlenderLean (along with cinnamon and chromium) produces unprecedented synergyso unique that patent protection has been applied for prior to unveiling of this amazing product.
Diet And Exercise*
Although many weight loss supplements claim that they work to cause weight loss without diet or exercise, only potentially dangerous ones, actually are capable of that. SlenderLean helps facilitate adherence to your weight loss program by helping you feel like exercising, by enhancing the effects of moderate exercise on hormone sensitive lipase and by supporting healthy levels of energy, and appetite. Its also very important to drink lots of water (at least a pint before meals, and 2 pints before, during, and after exercising), map out an exercise program you can stick to, and find out what is the best mixture of carbohydrate, fat, and protein for YOUR particular type of metabolism.
Exercise also builds muscle, which burns more energy than fat, even at restwhich is why exercise, which maintains muscle mass, is so crucial to maintaining weight loss, once it has been achieved. Now, with the power of diet, exercise, water, and the help of natural compounds in the unique patent pending phytonutrient blend of SlenderLeanthat can help you stick to your programvitality, energy, and a new you are easily within your grasp. Give yourself and your loved ones the gift of healthy weight, energy, and well-being - with SlenderLean!
