Snacking is known to be really bad for the figure but some people find it difficult to resist. If you’re one of them, carob powder and gum could be the answer! They contain a high level of soluble fibre which in the presence of water expands in the stomach to produce a feeling of satiety. In other words, the hunger pangs disappear and with it, the overwhelming urge to snack. Carob supplements are therefore perfect for controlling hunger!
Opinion of the SuperSmart experts: among the appetite-suppressant options on the market, carob extracts are currently proving very popular. However, it’s important to choose a good quality product since the extraction processes used are by no means all the same. The supplement CSAT®, which combines carob powder and gum, guarantees maximum traceability with multiple quality controls: no pathogenic germs, pesticides, or heavy metals …
Indigenous to Asia, the tree Garcinia cambogia produces a fruit which has attracted considerable interest over the last few years. This is because its rind contains a compound called AHC which appears to have a triple slimming action. According to researchers, this natural active principle reduces fat storage by inhibiting the enzyme ATP-citrate lyase, encourages fat elimination by increasing its oxidation and regulates appetite by inducing activation of glucoreceptors in the liver. What more can we say except that supplementing with Garcinia cambogia offers numerous advantages as summer approaches!
Opinion of the SuperSmart experts: though it remains little known in Europe, the benefits of Garcinia cambogia fruit should soon be receiving increasing recognition. The fruit itself is rarely eaten due to its high acidity, but the rind offers significant potential for weight loss. With this in mind, an extract of Garcinia cambogia standardised in AHC is now available from the SuperSmart dietary supplement catalogue.
Behind the scientific name Agaricus bisporus lies a familiar food: the button mushroom. Surprising as it may seem, this mushroom offers benefits for weight loss. Spanish scientists have identified and extracted compounds called mucopolysaccharides which are able to capture fats present in the diet, reducing their absorption and encouraging their elimination. Suffice to say that with summer round the corner, presenting as it does so many opportunities for appetisers and al fresco dining, a natural fat-trapper is a timely aid!
Opinion of the SuperSmart experts: the discovery of the slimming benefits of mucopolysaccharides opens up promising new horizons! Research suggests these compounds are effective at combatting weight gain. You can benefit right now from this new development with the supplement H2O Slim®, an extract of Agaricus bisporus standardised in mucopolysaccharides.
You may already know this African spice for its stimulating action but did you know that grains of paradise also offer significant slimming benefits? They contain a powerful fat-burning compound called 6-paradol. This active principle stimulates the mechanism of thermogenesis in the body which has the effect of encouraging the elimination of fats, particularly in the stomach.
Opinion of the SuperSmart experts: the 6-paradol found in grains of paradise has been consistently shown to be effective at reducing fat mass. Such results have led to the development of the natural fat-burner Paradoxine®, a dietary supplement formulated from an extract of grains of paradise standardised in 6-paradol.
