Chewing Gum & Weight Management

A recent study found that chewing gum prior to eating a snack both significantly cuts calories and significantly reduces hunger later in the day (compared to not chewing gum prior to eating a snack.) Marion Hetherington and Emma Boyland, the University of Liverpool researchers leading the study, concluded that, "Chewing gum could be a useful tool to suppress appetite and reduce food intake as part of a strategy for weight management."

Why Nutra-Trim Gum? While all chewing gums offer some weight management benefits, Nutra-Trim is the only chewing gum combining green tea extract (EGCG), L-carnitine, chromium picolinate and guarana to provide both immediate and long-term weight management benefits. These ingredients work together to create an effective weight management tool.

Green Tea Extract (EGCG) - Green tea has been known by Far Eastern cultures for thousands of years to offer exceptional health benefits. In addition to being a great source of anti-oxidants, green tea extract increases the body's rate of metabolism in a natural and safe way. An increase in metabolism means your body burns more calories, even while at rest.

A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition1 demonstrated that consuming green tea extract after meals can result in a 35-43% increase in metabolism.

Also, the researchers compared the effects of green tea extract to the effects of caffeine alone and found that green tea is much better than caffeine at increasing the rate of metabolism; additionally, green tea consumption aided in fat oxidation where caffeine alone generated no effect at all. Please note that Nutra-Trim has no artificial stimulants.

EGCG also aids in curbing appetite. Another well-documented report to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition2 demonstrated that the administration of green tea extract to laboratory animals reduces their food consumption by 15 - 60%.

Thus, from reducing caloric intake to boosting metabolism to reducing appetite, green tea extract (EGCG) offers the complete spectrum of weight management benefits. And Nutra-Trim Gum is the only chewing gum that contains EGCG - go figure!

L-Carnitine - L-carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid that is essential to the body's conversation of fatty acids to energy. People who do not get enough L-carnitine in their diet do not metabolize at their maximum rate. Recent research has also shown3 that, even in individuals without a deficiency, taking an L-carnitine supplement orally results in "an increase in long-chain fatty acid oxidation."

In other words, adding another source of L-carnitine to your diet helps to improve the rate of fat metabolism! And Nutra-Trim Weight Management Gum is the easiest way to add another source of L-carnitine to any diet.

Chromium Picolinate - Chromium is an essential mineral that increases the effectiveness of insulin, aiding in the transfer of glucose and protein into muscle cells while minimizing the creation of fat. Numerous studies have found that most North Americans are chromium-deficient, meaning that their insulin is not working as efficiently as it could.

Because chromium helps in the maintenance and correction of blood sugar levels, a chromium-deficiency can result in a "sweet tooth" or the over-consumption of sugar. That is, sugar that is consumed but doesn't properly enter the blood stream will not contribute to a sense of fullness. That, of course, will lead individuals to consume even more sugars in order to achieve satisfaction. Adding another source of chromium to your diet may result in a decrease in appetite, especially cravings for sweets - a big help to any weight management strategy!

Chromium may also aid in the development of muscle and, as a result, lead directly to an increase in metabolism. As reported in a 2002 cover story in Natural Health Magazine4 ,

If your insulin works efficiently, your body turns fewer calories into fat and more into muscle, says Richard Anderson, Ph.D., lead researcher at the Beltsville Human Nutrition Research Center at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Beltsville, Md. The more muscle you have, the more calories your body burns. In an eight-week study of 83 overweight people presented at this year's meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine, half took 400 mcg of one of two forms of chromium daily and the other half took a placebo. Those who took plant-based chromium supplements lost 3 pounds more body fat than the placebo group, and those who took chromium picolinate lost 1 1/2 pounds more body fat than the placebo group. All subjects ate less than usual and exercised.

Just in case there's any question, we should point out that Nutra-Trim is the only chewing gum to provide the active ingredient Chromium Picolinate. Try Nutra-Trim today and find out what it can do for you!

Recommended Use

Nutra-Trim Weight Management Gum is not a diet - it's an effective and delicious addition to any weight management strategy. It can supplement an existing program or be the first step as you begin one. We recommend that individuals chew two pieces of Nutra-Trim at least three times per day in order to receive significant benefit; however, all levels of use will aid in weight management. The best times to chew Nutra-Trim are immediately before meals, immediately after meals, and during periods when you are most prone to snacking.

Health experts generally agree that by combining a balanced diet with a program of regular, moderate exercise, most individuals can achieve their weight management goals. Adding Nutra-Trim Gum to such a plan helps to maximize its results. It is recommended that individuals consult a physician before beginning any new diet or exercise program.
