Let’s Examine Lean Edge’s All-Star Cast of Ingredients: Chromium Picolinate: Chromium is an essential mineral which helps regulate insulin in the body and blood glucose. Due to its role in the regulation of blood sugar, a deficiency in Chromium may result in glucose intolerance, fatigue, and anxiety. Chromium supplementation may also assist in the reduction of snacking behavior and binge eating. L-Carnitine (Tri-Carnitine Specialized Fat Loss Complex): Lean Edge’s Tri-Carnitine Specialized Fat Loss Complex contains 3 different forms of L-Carnitine. L-Carnitine is one of the most popular and widely used stimulant free fat loss ingredients on the market and works through transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria of cells (where energy is produced) to be burned off and used for energy to fuel the body and keep you going throughout the day (think cellular energy instead of stimulant like energy). In simple terms, L-Carnitine helps convert fat to energy. Without adequate carnitine, most dietary fats can’t get into the mitochondria and be burned for fuel. Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR) is a form of L-Carnitine that goes a step further than regular L-Carnitine due to its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. Once it crosses the blood-brain barrier, Acetyl L-Carnitine helps promote the synthesis of Acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter whose primary role is to allow for communication between nerve cells. Due to its unique ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, Acetyl L-Carnitine supports brain energy and function, healthy memory, focus, alertness, concentration, improved mood and sense of well-being, and more. Green Tea Extract: Green Tea Extract, primarily through its active constituent EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate), is perhaps one of the most widely known fat burning ingredients on the market. It has a variety of well-established fat loss effects including reducing the absorption of dietary lipids (fat) and modulating their subsequent metabolism, increasing glucose utilization, increased oxidization of fatty acids, and lipolysis (releasing stored fat). If you drink green tea, you may be asking yourself why you haven’t seen much, if any fat loss? The reason for this is likely two-fold. One, you would have to drink a lot of green tea to get the amount of EGCG possible through supplementation. Two, many people that drink green tea sweeten it with a variety of sugar based sweeteners and the increased calories and sugars offset the potential fat loss benefits. Lean Edge solves this problem by providing you with an astounding 500 mg. of Green Tea standardized to a very high 60% EGCG extract for maximum results. Prickly Ash Bark: Prickly Ash Bark Extract is a novel little known but very promising fat loss ingredient that appears to have similarities to capsaicin and aframomum through its methods of action. Prickly Ash Bark may also support fat loss through PPAR-gamma modulation and through activation of the TRPV1 channel which has been shown in studies to improve visceral fat loss (visceral fat is the body fat stored in the abdominal cavity and is commonly referred to as the most unhealthy type of body-fat). Olive Leaf Extract: Olive Leaf Extract is commonly used in supplements designed to help improve immune function and may also support blood sugar regulation and fat loss. Olive Leaf Extract may support fat loss through a variety of pathways. Olive Leaf Extract has been shown to increase thermogenin (also called UCP-1), an uncoupling protein found in brown adipose tissue (BAT), leading to greater thermogenesis (fat burning). Olive Leaf Extract has also been shown to help support improved insulin sensitivity, blood sugar regulation, and thyroid function. Ever hear of the Mediterranean diet and its host of benefits for overall improved health? The Mediterranean diet is heavy on olive oil. Olive Leaf Extract, just as the name sounds, is derived from the leaves of olives and the type used in Lean Edge is standardized for a very high concentration of Oleuropein, which is the main constituent of Olive Leaf Extract that is responsible for many of its associated health benefits. Rhodiola Rosea Extract (3% Rosavins and 2% Salidrosides): Rhodiola Rosea is an adaptogenic herb that is commonly used to help promote weight loss, burn abdominal (belly) fat, lower cortisol levels, decrease stress, support positive mood and improved sense of well-being, reduce brain fog and mental fatigue, and much more. Adaptogenic herbs are herbs that can help increase the body’s ability to handle stress and resist the damaging effects of stress and to promote or restore normal physiological functioning. So much could be written about Rhodiola to fully explain the incredible benefits of this ingredient that it would be a full length article or series of articles all unto itself. Our Rhodiola Rosea Extract is extracted for 3% rosavins and 2% salidrosides. This is important because research shows it’s these two ingredients that are responsible for the adaptogenic effects of Rhodiola Rosea. Some companies use generic Rhodiola Rosea root powder, which is not standardized for any certain active ingredients. Extracts that are not extracted for a specific ingredient are unreliable (you don’t know what it is that this generic extract contains) but many companies use them because they are much cheaper than those extracted for effective ingredients. Paradoxine® Grains of Paradise (Aframomum Melegueta): Paradoxine® is a standardized extract of the Grains of Paradise seed, also known as Aframomum Melegueta, which is a spice native to West Africa that belongs to the same family as ginger. Paradoxine® is ideal for those looking for improved body-composition and enhanced fat loss. To understand how Paradoxine® works, it requires an understanding of the different types of adipose tissue (fat) in the body: White Adipose Tissue (WAT)/White Fat Cells – are your body’s energy storage cells; basically, they are fat that your body stores as stored energy (leftover unburned calories from the food that you eat). Large amounts of white fat around the abdominal area is associated with a higher risk of metabolic disease. Brown Adipose Tissue (BAT)/Brown Fat Cells – are used for diet and cold induced thermogenesis (maintaining your body’s normal temperature when exposed to cold). Brown fat generates heat by burning calories. Paradoxine has the unique ability to help convert White Fat to Brown Fat, thereby converting the energy storing fat tissue into the type of fat tissue than helps increase thermogenesis and total calorie expenditure. Unlike many fat loss ingredients, Paradoxine is backed by human studies. One study on Paradoxine in humans showed that subjects who consumed Paradoxine® had a significantly greater increase in energy expenditure, seemingly due to the increase in brown fat activity versus the placebo group. Another study showed that subjects (non-obese women) that consumed Paradoxine had greater decreases in body-fat around the lower abdominals as well as lower levels of visceral fat in the same area as compared to those who consumed a placebo; and very significantly this was with both groups NOT making any changes in diet or exercise. Sensoril® Ashwagandha: Sensoril® is a clinically researched ashwagandha extract that has been studied in more than ten human clinical trials and has been shown to help manage and reduce stress, boost energy levels, reduce fatigue, support improved sense of well-being, enhance focus and reaction time, and improve cognitive mental health, mood, and vitality. Numerous scientific studies have established a link between stress and cortisol induced overeating and weight gain. Sensoril® is clinically tested to lower cortisol levels which can help reduce stress induced cravings and over-eating and lead to fat loss and improved body composition. GS4 Plus® Gymnema Sylvestre: GS4 Plus® Gymnema Sylvestre is a licensed branded form of Gymnema Sylvestre that is included in Lean Edge for its glucose control properties and to help possibly reduce sugar cravings. Gymnema Sylvestre is a vine that grows in the tropical areas of Southeast Asia that is commonly used for blood sugar control, weight loss, and appetite control. It also has glucose disposal agent properties, meaning that it can help make carbohydrate metabolism more efficient. L-Theanine: L-Theanine is a calming, relaxing amino acid that is found naturally occurring in tea, especially in green tea. Due to its ability to affect brain function, it is considered to be a nootropic (cognitive enhancing) amino acid and is also considered to be an adaptogen. Adaptogens are ingredients that can help increase the body’s ability to handle stress and resist the damaging effect of stress and to promote or restore normal physiological functioning. L-Theanine is commonly associated with reduced feelings of stress and anxiety, improved mental focus, clarity, & concentration (less brain fog), increased motivation and energy, improved sense of well-being, positive mood, & much more. L-Theanine is included in Lean Edge for its nootropic (cognitive enhancing), adaptogenic (stress relieving), mood support, and appetite control benefits. A note on L-Theanine and Appetite Control – Appetite control is important for weight loss for obvious reasons and many people find Theanine to be particularly effective for appetite control and for reducing cravings and binge eating. When stressed, many people find themselves far more likely to break from their diets and crave more sugary, high calorie foods. The practical reason for this is associating those types of foods with making you feel better or as a quick happiness fix but the scientific side supports this as well because sweet treats can release serotonin, changing your mood chemistry to make you feel better. The problem is that this can be disastrous for your diet and also start a cycle of guilt and binge eating. Capsimax® Capsicum: Capsimax is a concentrated highly active natural capsaicin extract designed to deliver effective levels of capsaicinoids without the negative side effects (oral and gastric burning sensations) associated with regular capsaicin extracts. Capsaicinoids have been shown to promote energy production and support fat loss and healthy metabolism through thermogenesis (production of heat in the body) and lipolysis (mobilizing fats for energy production). Gamma-butyrobetaine HCI (GBB): Gamma-butyrobetaine is a precursor to L-Carnitine that has the ability to increase the body’s production of L-Carnitine and help improve energy levels, fat loss, athletic performance, and more. GBB is referred to by some as ‘Super Carnitine’ and functions similarly to other L-Carnitine supplements but at a dramatically lower dosage and takes things a step further due to its ability to raise plasma levels of L-Carnitine so incredibly high. In addition to having a potent synergistic action with L-Carnitine, GBB can also lead to thermogenesis as evidenced by the increased sweating that some feel when using GBB which has lead some people to say that they ‘feel the fat melting off’. Of course that is an exaggeration but is a good indication of the great fat burning results that many feel from GBB. AstraGin®: AstraGin® is a natural patented ingredient complex comprised of highly fractionated Astragalus membranaceus and Panax notoginseng and created using pharmaceutical grade extraction and processing technology and designed to help enhance nutrient absorption. In short, AstraGin® is designed to help make sure you properly absorb the other great nutrients in Lean Edge for maximum results. Bioperine®: Bioperine® is a standardized extract from the fruit of Piper nigrum L (Black Pepper) containing 95% piperine. Piperine has been shown to enhance the oral bioavailability of many supplements. Bioperine® is included in Lean Edge to be the perfect one-two punch with AstraGin® to help ensure that you properly absorb and get the maximum benefits out of all of the awesome ingredients in the comprehensive Lean Edge formulation. Huperzine A: Huperzine A is a potent and well-rounded nootropic ingredient for cognition and brain health and has an extensive list of potential physical and mental health benefits. Huperzine A is known as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor which means that it stops an enzyme from breaking down acetylcholine which can result in increases in acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is known as the ‘learning neurotransmitter’ and plays a primary role in the communication between nerve cells. Huperzine A supports brain function, memory, recall, improved memory retrieval, mental energy, and maximized learning potential. It may also support increased cognitive performance and decreased fatigue while training/working out. Huperzine A is particularly important and included in Lean Edge because even though Lean Edge is a stimulant free fat burner and you may not want the stimulant type of energy, how many of us in today’s world don’t want or need extra mental energy?
