The Science behind

NSP Weight-loss Products

By Dr. William J. Keller with Darlyn Britt

Dr. William J. Keller, Vice President of Health Sciences and Educational Services,recently presented a seminar to our TAC trip attendees about our newest weightloss formulas, MetaboMax Plus & MetaboMax Free. It was well-received, and we wanted to share it with a greater audience, along with other valuable information about some of our most popular weight-management supplements.

MetaboMax Plus & MetaboMax Free

White fat (also called adipose tissue or fat) is simply stored energy. When you eat more than you burn, it is stored as white fat. Everyone has it. Some people have more than others. Excess white fat can lead to health problems. As fat builds up, it can lead to blood pressure issues, hardening of the arteries, insulin resistance and blood sugar concerns. All of these are precursors to type II diabetes. White fat can also contribute to inflammation. Therefore, it is logical to decrease extra white fat in the body.

In designing our new weight management formulas, NSP discovered a lot of powerful ingredient synergy that can assist in achieving meaningful weight loss when added to a suitable regimen of diet and exercise.

What Is Thermogenesis?

A lot of people define this as fat burning, which is a pretty apt description. But let's take it a step further. Thermogenesis is the generation of heat in the mitochondria (the cell's energy factory) due to an uncoupling of oxidative phosphorylation.

What does this mean? When food is metabolized in your body, a lot of electrons are produced. As these electrons are processed in the mitochondria, the energy liberated is trapped to form ATP—the cell's energy currency.

Normally electron processing and ATP formation are coupled and the ATP produced provides needed cellular energy. When uncoupling occurs, very little ATP is formed. Most of the energy is released as heat.

Free fatty acids from fat cells activate uncoupling and the thermogenic mechanism. Lipolysis, or the breakdown of fat, liberates free fatty acids(hence the name fat burning). The fat disappears and a lot of heat is produced.

Working together for a Goal

At least five ingredients in MetaboMax Plus combine to synergistically affect lipolysis, which gives the free fatty acids that spark thermogenesis.

Synephrine from bitter orange stimulates the release of noradrenaline (or norepinephrine) that binds to receptors on fat cells, causing lipolysis.

EGCG, the main catechin from green tea, enhances noradrenaline action because it inhibits an enzyme that normally breaks down noradrenaline.

Natural caffeine from guarana and yerba mate interferes with the breakdown of a key mediator in the lipolytic process.

• The other ingredients act together to cause lipolysis and weight loss.

From this we understand that the free fatty acids from lipolysis stimulate uncoupling. This uncoupling results in thermogenesis. So, fat breaks down, the fatty acids cause uncoupling, and foods are oxidized to give only heat, which is dissipated and not used by the body as an energy source. Remember, this process continues at a fairly fast rate as long as the ATP levels are low.

The remaining MetaboMax ingredients benefit weight loss by different mechanisms.

Capsaicin from red pepper decreases appetite through sensory stimulation, as well as binding to the so-called vanilloid receptor. This receptor is important in body temperature regulation.

Guggulsterones increase the conversion of T4 to the more potent thyroid hormone T3, which is known to stimulate thermogenesis.

Chickweed interferes with fat absorption from the gastrointestinal tract.

MetaboMax Free has the same weight-loss benefits as Metabomax Plus. But this formula is caffeine-free. For this reason, the thermogenic effect of Metabomax Free is slightly less.

A solid weight loss program should also include a sensible diet and a reasonable exercise program. And of course, determination is a key component.

Several NSP supplements can give you needed support in your weight management efforts.

MetaboStart® Plus

This program, featuring MetaboMax Plus and its thermogenic ingredients, combines several powerful NSP formulas into one comprehensive package to support weight-loss efforts from many angles. Take one AM packet before breakfast, one NOON packet before lunch and one PM packet before dinner.

• The AM packet contains 1 MetaboMax Plus, 1 7-Keto, 3 Fat Grabbers, 1 Carbo Grabbers with Chromium.

• The NOON packet contains 2 MetaboMax Plus, 3 Fat Grabbers, 1 Carbo Grabbers with Chromium.

• The PM packet contains 3 Carbo Grabbers with Chromium and 2 CLA.

Drink plenty of water throughout the day.

Fat Grabbers®

A blend of chickweed, lecithin, psyllium hulls and guar gum, patented NSP Fat Grabbers can be an important component of any weight-loss program. Lecithin emulsifies fat in water. The fat-binding properties of fiber from guar gum and psyllium hulls interfere with the absorption of emulsified fat from the small intestine, allowing bound fat molecules to be eliminated from the body. Drink plenty of water when using Fat Grabbers.

Carbo Grabbers with Chromium

This popular formula helps reduce the amount of dietary carbohydrates that are digested in the body for energy or storage. An enzyme inhibitor found in a specific type of bean prevents the digestion of some dietary carbohydrates in the small intestine when Carbo Grabbers are taken with water. This mechanism may allow a person to eat some carbs without the body harvesting all of the calories from those carbs.

Now with the addition of the trace mineral chromium, this formula may help the body's efforts to promote metabolic activity and maintain blood sugar levels already within the normal range. Chromium also helps synthesize proteins.

Nutri-Burn® Protein Powder Chocolate & Vanilla

Our popular, protein-rich drink powder features two types of protein—whey and calcium caseinate—and provides 25 grams of it per serving! Whey provides amino acids (building blocks of protein) to help repair and strengthen muscle tissue that is broken down during exercise. Muscle burns more calories than fat does, so a leaner body has a higher metabolism than a fatter body of the same weight. Calcium caseinate also provides important protein along with the mineral calcium.

Nutri-Burn contains a host of nutrients and added herbs for a complete, powerful formula. These include:

Garcinia cambogia slows the conversion of excess calories into fat for storage in the body. It may also promote energy for endurance performance.

L-carnitine increases long-chain fatty acid oxidation. This means less fat is available for deposit in the body. It also promotes the burning of fat for energy production and enhances lean muscle deposition.

Chromium is essential for carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. It helps synthesize proteins and helps glucose get into the cell where it is used for energy.

Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA). In animals, CLA has been shown to decrease body fat mass and increase lean body mass. CLA may have some positive effect on glucose tolerance.

11 Vitamins and four Minerals—60% or more of the Daily Value for all of these!

Lecithin helps to emulsify fat and may aid fat removal from the body.

Fiber—6 grams per serving to promote gut health and to help maintain cholesterol levels already in the normal range.

Decaffeinated Green Tea extract—a source of powerful antioxidants and circulatory support. Green tea may also help boost metabolism.

Vanadium is a trace mineral that may help improve athletic performance by reducing fatigue and the breakdown of muscle for energy.

Weight Loss Booklet (5)

We teamed up with fitness expert, ab model and NSP distributor Max Wettstein to create a brand-new weight-loss instruction booklet. No matter where you are on your weight-loss journey, this 41-page booklet can offer help and information. It:

• Discusses the importance of losing fat (not just weight)

• Tackles realistic goal setting

• Teaches energy equations, exercise, nutrition, heart rate and exercise intensity

• Provides specific fitness and nutritional instructions

• Includes information on the new and improved NSP weight-loss line of products

• Features an expanded section of tips for healthy weight loss

Let this great new tool help you get the results and health you desire.
