- Contains 45% chlorogenic acids for antioxidant action.
- Has benefits for the heart and arteries.
- Has a beneficial effect on weight control.
Green Coffee Extract is a specific polyphenol extract of green coffee of the Coffea arabica variety. It's standardized to contain at least 45% chlorogenic acids and a maximum of 2% caffeine. Green coffee contains many more chlorogenic acids than roasted coffee because the roasting process largely destroys these delicate substances.
Coffee contains tannins and antioxidants which are good for the heart and arteries. Studies suggest that moderate coffee-drinkers have an 80% lower risk of Parkinson's disease, a 25% lower risk of colon cancer, a 50% lower risk of kidney stones and an 80% lower risk of cirrhosis of the liver.
Green Coffee Extract 200 mg is a powerful antioxidant which protects fibroblasts 100% from irradiation-induced cyto-toxicity. Similarly, production of malondialdehyde (a marker of oxidation) was reduced by 46% following exposure of keratinocytes to a powerful pro-oxidant, TBHP. The antioxidant activity of chlorogenic acids, their hepato-toxicity and proliferative activity inhibitory role have been supported by a number of other studies.

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.
There are a number of mechanisms behind TropiSlim’s weight loss effects:
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.
TropiSlim combines two natural compounds that are widely scientifically-documented, as well as bromelain to increase their absorption.
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 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 the 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.
We recommend taking one capsule in the morning, and one in the evening, around 20 minutes before eating.
It can be combined with other supplements available to buy at Supersmart such as 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.

The keto diet, high in fat, produces rapid weight loss. Here’s a quick rundown of what you need to know before launching into a diet of this kind.
Lipolysis is the body’s mechanism for breaking down fats to make them absorbable and usable. There are two types: gastrointestinal lipolysis, which takes place during digestion, and adipocyte lipolysis, concerned with stored fat, which is often referred to as ‘fat-burning’. How can you use it to help achieve your slimming goals?
You may have heard that thermogenesis helps you lose weight, but what exactly is it? How does it work and how can you stimulate it to enhance a diet plan? Supersmart has the answers.
