How it works
Let’s quickly recap the benefits of the three Active ingredients of Fo̱tiá.
The HCA extract from Garcinia Cambogia supplement aids in weight loss by doing two things: It helps to block fat and it suppresses your appetite. HCA blocks fat by inhibiting a key enzyme that your body needs to make fat from carbohydrates – Citrate Lyase. In order to control weight gain and aid in weight loss in a healthy way, controlling Citrate Lyase enzyme is the key. Citrate Lyase functions by converting unutilized carbs into fat and storing it for future use, thus leading to weight gain.
How then does Citrate Lyase cause fat accumulation? – A reaction in the human body called fatty acid biosynthesis is catalyzed by Citrate Lyase. In this reaction, Citrate Lyase is turned into Acetyl CoA. Later, the body uses this Acetyl CoA for making fat. Thus, blocking the enzyme Citrate Lyase translates to less fat in the body.
HCA also increases the amount of a brain chemical called serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter which helps to control appetite. Most food cravings are related to emotions rather than actual hunger and by increasing the levels of Serotonin, these emotional cravings are successfully suppressed by HCA. Thus, the need to consume more food and calories is reduced.
Another benefit of HCA is that it makes it easier for our bodies to use glucose efficiently. Glucose is the sugar that cells need for energy. When glucose is used more efficiently, we have more energy and better endurance.
HCA also helps to regulate, or lower levels of cortisol within the body. Cortisol is a steroid hormone that is produced by the adrenal glands which sit on top of each kidney. When released into the bloodstream, cortisol can act on many different parts of the body and can help:
- Your body respond to stress or danger
- Increase your body’s metabolism of glucose
- Control your blood pressure
- Reduce inflammation.
Elevated levels of cortisol can result in increased weight gain (especially belly fat), elevated blood pressure, as well as an increase the risk of heart disease.
Coffee beans are a great source of two phytochemicals – Caffeine and Chlorogenic Acid. Caffeine has the ability to increase alertness, focus and reduce fatigue. It can also help you feel less hungry, boost the fat burning process by increasing thermogenesis, and help you to get more out of your exercise routine by improving your performance. Chlorogenic acid helps improve insulin sensitivity by downregulating the genes responsible for inflammation-induced weight gain. It also prevents fat absorption and boost fat metabolism in the liver, thereby aiding weight loss. Apart from improving fat metabolism, Chlorogenic acid also normalizes the obesity-related hormones and decreases the absorption of sugars and carbohydrates from the digestive tract, which lowers blood sugar and insulin spikes.
- Inhibiting 11-βHSD1, an enzyme involved in making hormones that raises blood pressure [R]
- Increasing Glucagon-like peptide 1, a hormone that increases blood insulin levels and lowers glucose [R].
- Activating Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptor alpha, leading to increased heat production and body fat loss [R].
- Lowering body fat content by reducing levels of triglycerides, LDL–cholesterol, and VLDL [R]
- Preventing the absorption of fats, the production of fats (inhibition of fatty acid synthase), and increasing beta-oxidation, leading to the breakdown of fats [R].
- Inhibiting acetylcholinesterase, resulting in improved cognition and memory [R]
The harmony between Chlorogenic acid and HCA is magnificent in providing a synergistic impact on fat burning and weight loss:
Hydroxycitric Acid, the key element in Garcinia Cambogia, helps prevent carbohydrates from turning into fat; helps decrease appetite, and may help reduce fat accumulation.
Chlorogenic Acid, the key element in Green Coffee Bean extract has been shown to improve glucose and fatty acid metabolism; promote fat burning and increase overall metabolism.
Potassium chloride plays a major role in various muscle, cellular, cardiac and other functions in the body. It serves as a reliable and necessary middle man that makes multiple weight loss functions possible. So how does potassium chloride help you shed those unwanted pounds? Let’s take a look:
- Potassium chloride gives your body the components necessary to provide energy for physical activity by aiding in its use of metabolism-boosting nutrients, including iron, magnesium and calcium.
- It combines with magnesium (from supplements or the food you eat) to aid in muscle contraction, control and growth. Bigger, stronger muscles burn more calories.
- As an electrolyte, potassium chloride combines with sodium to help regulate fluids around your cells and keep you from retaining too much water. This is important because at any given time, you may be holding on to three to five pounds of water weight.
