People throughout the world are struggling to lose weight and to maintain their weight. They are trying and using all types of weight loss products and are joining one program after the other. There is now one such supplement that produces slow and consistent weight loss and it contains two natural ingredients Rhododendron Caucasicum and Rhodiola rosea.
People eat all kinds of processed fatty food and have very little activity or exercise. This is the formula for gaining pounds and becoming fatter. Your body is designed to collect and store fat so it can protect your organs from nutritional depletion. The bigger your organs become, the more your body tries to store fat. As you gain weight, you body is trying to protect your organs even more by increasing your appetite.
When you don't have an exercise program you decrease your body's ability to loss weight. This causes you to gaining more weight and you begin to lose the motivation to exercise. Then, when you start a diet program, your body will try to protect itself by slowing down your metabolism, causing you to become fatigue and tired quickly and making it real difficult for you to lose weight.
Fats are digested by pancreatic triglyceride lipase, which are enzymes excreted by the pancreas. These enzymes work in the intestinal wall of the duodenum. This lipase breaks down fat into small molecules - free fatty acids and monoacylglycerols - that can pass through the intestinal wall. When these pancreatic lipase enzymes are not present, fats are not digested and move into the colon where they combined with fecal matter and are excreted in bowel movements.
Scientists and clinical researchers have been studying how to block fat adsorption in the intestines. They have come out with a few drugs that are not recommended - Orlistat and Meridia. Orlistat, known as Xenical, is a drug that partially inhibits lipase action and thereby is considered a fat blocker. It has two known side effects - intestinal gas and poor bowel movement control. Since your body needs fat to maintain good health, fat blockers should only partial block your adsorption of fat to be considered an effective drug or natural product.
Another fat blocking drug is Meridia. It too has side effects - high blood pressure - and is not recommended.
Clinical research has shown that a natural product called Rhododendron Caucasicum extract, which comes from young spring leaves, is an effective partial fat blocker or lipase inhibitor. Studies at the Moscow State Hospital Center of Modern Medicine were performed on 132 volunteers that were given 150 mg of Rhododendron Caucasicum extract three times a day prior to eating. Feces examination showed that volunteers given Rhododendron had 15-20% more fat excretion than those who had a placebo.
The amount of weight loss using Rhododendron Caucasicum was 5 -10 lbs during the three month trail. Even though some may consider this a small amount of loss, it is important to lose weight slowly so that it is not regained and so that health can be maintained. Losing weight too fast can create high blood pressure and other health problems in the following years.
And, one other thing about Rhododendron Caucasicum, Japanese researchers found that a major ingredient in Rhododendron, taxifolins, stimulates fat release from adipose tissue.
Clinical trails with Rhodiola rosea show similar properties of Rhododendron Caucasicum. Tests show that together they provide a powerful combination to give you a safe weight loss supplement. This combination has been found to:
Â· Boost metabolism
Â· Promote weight loss
Â· Promote natural body fat burning
Â· Increase energy levels
In Russia, Rhodiola rosea and Rhododendron Caucasicum have been used to treat depression and anxiety for many years. Rhodiola rosea has been found to increase your serotonin levels giving you a feeling of well being. This could be an addition benefit for those of you that lack motivation or are depressed about your weight.
By using Rhododendron Caucasicum and Rhodiola rosea with a reduced fat diet, increase fiber, and exercise, your weight loss program should be safe and consistent.
