TropiSlim is a natural slimming supplement made from the tropical cactus ‘pitaya’, also known as ‘dragon fruit’. This fast-emerging exotic ‘superfruit’ promotes weight loss via several unique mechanisms of action: it modulates appetite, increases satiety, inhibits the body’s production of fats (lipogenesis), has a thermogenic ‘fat-burning’ effect, and reduces water retention.

It also contains raspberry ketones to reduce the body’s general resistance to losing weight and bromelain to make the active principles more bioavailable.

What unique weight loss effects are offered by TropiSlim?

There are a number of mechanisms behind TropiSlim’s weight loss effects:

  • modulation of appetite and increased feelings of satiety as a result of its high content in tyramine and N-methyl-tyramine, two enzymes involved in the secretion of glucagon (a satiety hormone).
  • an increase in general metabolism ( thermogenic effect) and lipolysis (breakdown of fats) from its raspberry ketones and extract of dragon fruit.
  • a reduction in production of fats from sugar due to the anthocyanins in dragon fruit (1-2).
  • the natural diuretic effect of dragon fruit which minimises water retention.
  • decreased absorption of carbohydrates as a result of exposing the gastrointestinal tract to high levels of anthocyanins (3-4).

Together, these mechanisms contribute to a rapid reduction in weight and abdominal circumference. Their range and diversity maximises the chances of successfully achieving weight loss.

What is in TropiSlim?

TropiSlim combines two natural compounds that are widely scientifically-documented, as well as bromelain to increase their absorption.

An extract of dragon fruit standardised in anthocyanins for satiety and purging of fat cells

Like acai or goji berries, ‘dragon fruit’ (or pitaya) is considered a ‘superfruit’. It is a little like kiwi fruit, but brighter in colour and with more flavour. The natural dragon fruit extract in TropiSlim is rich in antioxidants (polyphenols and flavonoids), vitamin C, fibre, polyunsaturated fatty acids (particularly omega-3) and B vitamins (5-6), essential for normal carbohydrate metabolism. But its real advantage is its high anthocyanin content.

Anthocyanins are antioxidants scientifically recognised for their benefits in supporting weight loss (7) and in particular for their ability to reduce carbohydrate absorption (they inhibit sugar-specific digestive enzymes) (8). They also increase cells’ sensitivity to insulin, which improves the cells’ use of sugars circulating in the blood and reduces the conversion of these sugars into fats. Lastly, they inhibit factors that contribute to lipogenesis, the process whereby the body produces fat reserves (9-10).

TropiSlim also contains two enzymes involved in the secretion of glucagon (a satiety hormone): tyramine and N-methyl-tyramine. By increasing glucagon levels, they quickly help reduce appetite and promote a sensation of satiety.

Dragon fruit is also an excellent diuretic which encourages the elimination of fluid and toxins. Clinical trials (11) have also demonstrated its ability to reduce levels of triglycerides and LDL-cholesterol in the blood.

These multiple mechanisms of action make dragon fruit a natural, powerful and original slimming aid.

Raspberry ketones to make the body less resistant to losing weight

Raspberry ketones are natural phenolic compounds derived from red raspberries (Rubus idaeus L.). They are similar in structure to capsaicin, a natural molecule known for its lipolytic effect, which means it promotes the breakdown of fats in adipocytes (fat cells) (12)).

The ketones increase secretion by fatty tissue of a messenger called adiponectin, which promotes oxidation and breakdown of fats (13-14). It’s an important hormone which controls metabolism of fats and the body’s equilibrium.

In overweight individuals, secretion of this messenger decreases, helping to maintain excess fat (15) and making the body more resistant to weight loss. By increasing adiponectin levels, raspberry ketones help restore normal secretion of this messenger and thus promote weight loss (16). Regulating adiponectin secretion is one of the most important ways of preventing obesity (17).

Ketones activate the process of ketogenesis in the absence of sugars: they serve as an alternative source of energy and thus discourage snacking.

5 good reasons to choose TropSlim over other slimming supplements

  1. It’s formulated from two exceptional, natural products which encompass all the mechanisms of action involved in weight loss. Other such supplements normally offer just one or two.
  2. It’s 100 % natural, and rich in active compounds: anthocyanins.
  3. It produces rapid, progressive weight loss, with no side-effects, and also improves other factors conducive to good health: blood lipid levels, the immune system, stabilisation of blood sugar and skin renewal.
  4. It contains bromelain, a compound rich in proteolytic enzymes which boosts the bioavailability of the pitaya extract.
  5. It comes in the form of DR Caps, the very best capsules available. They protect their contents against stomach acids, remaining intact until they reach the gut.

When and how should TropiSlim be taken in order to burn fat naturally?

We recommend taking one capsule in the morning, and one in the evening, around 20 minutes before eating.

It can be combined with goBHB™, a source of ketone bodies which act synergistically with raspberry ketones, and with Green Coffee Extract 200 mg, a slimming supplement based on green coffee to reduce blood sugar levels and prevent sugars from being converted into fat reserves (a function performed here by the anthocyanins in pitaya).

Diabetics should seek advice from a therapist before taking TropiSlim because of its effects on glycaemia.

Beta-hydroxybutyrate, a ketone body with remarkable effects

The new dietary supplement goBHB™ is formulated from beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB), one of three ketone bodies present in the human body. These are produced by the body under quite specific conditions in a process called ketogenesis which only occurs when our carbohydrate reserves are too low to produce energy. Synthesised by the breakdown of fatty acids, ketone bodies then serve as alternative energy sources so that the body can function properly.

Alternative source of energy for the body

Once present in the body, ketone bodies including beta-hydroxybutyrate are transported to various cells to provide the energy they need. Some cells, such as those in the muscles, heart and brain, have very high energy requirements. That is why BHB supplements are becoming increasingly popular with sports people whose energy needs are considerable. A number of studies show that supplementing with beta-hydroxybutyrate can help preserve energy stores in the form of glycogen. This can then be used as a secondary source of energy, thus helping to improve sports performance.

Benefits of BHB when dieting

Beta-hydroxybutyrate dietary supplements may also play a central role in the success of a weight loss programme. A dieter’s carbohydrate intake is often very low and an alternative source of energy can help prevent the urge to snack by providing fuel to support the body’s activity. By reducing the risk of failure, beta-hydroxybutyrate supplementation may therefore constitute a valuable aid to weight loss.

Protective effects of beta-hydroxybutyrate

As well as offering a source of energy to enable the body to function properly, beta-hydroxybutyrate may also be a powerful neuroprotective agent. A number of researchers have suggested that this ketone body may help increase levels of certain neurotrophic factors, including BDNF (Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor). BDNF plays a key role in the nervous system, contributing to neuron growth and survival.

goBHB™, beta-hydroxybutyrate sachets

The benefits of BHB can now be obtained through dietary supplements. Providing optimal efficacy, the goBHB™ product we offer is formulated from magnesium beta-hydroxybutyrate. It comes in sachets, each one containing an optimal amount of 5mg of goBHB™, with a suggested dose of two sachets a day, to be dissolved in water. This dose can, of course, be adapted to your needs and the advice of your therapist. As part of a weight-loss regime, BHB’s benefits can be combined with those offered by our wide range of effective slimming products, such as Advanced Fat Burner and the powerful Weight Loss Formula.
