In America today, as well as most other industrialized countries, obesity and overweight levels are a major problem. A staggering 25% to 35% of adults are obese, that number rises close to 70% for overweight adults. There are many claims, diet pills, and special exercise regimens that promise outstanding results. But many donâ€™t have research and scientific study backing it up.
The Natural Grapefruit Diet
Earthâ€™s Creationâ€™s Grapefruit DietÂ® is a perfect natural supplement to spur weight loss and increase your metabolism. The grapefruit for years has been linked to having slimming properties, but in the last decade, more research and clinical studies have been confirming these statements. Our natural product comes with 5 main ingredients, all which work together to help you shed those excess pounds. The ingredients are:
Grapefruit PowderÂ â€“ This is the whole of the grapefruit, including its skin and seeds, grounded into a fine powdered form. This is beneficial because all parts of the grapefruit contain naringenin, an antioxidant that increases insulin sensitivity by accelerating the breakdown of fat in the liver. Multiple studies have tested the effectiveness of grapefruits added to a diet. Many of those studies confirmed more weight loss associated to the patients who ate grapefruit before meals than those who ate nothing. The powdered form ensures you get all of the nutrients found in the grapefruit, and combines it with the other active ingredients to give you an excellent weight loss mixture.
GlucomannanÂ â€“ Glucomannan is a water-soluble polysaccharide that is considered a dietary fiber. It helps provide a â€śsatisfiedâ€ť feeling which makes you feel fuller. In one study lasting 16 weeks, 200 overweight and obese subjects were given a mixture of psyllium seed husks (3g) and glucomannan (1g) twice daily, the same mixture 3 times daily, or a placebo. The psyllium and glucomannan groups lost, on average, 9.96 lbs and 10.14 lbs respectively compared to 1.75 lbs by the control group. The glucomannan group had increased satiety compared to the control group and LDL cholesterol was significantly reduced during the study period. An eight-week double blind trial involved 20 obese patients. A placebo or a glucomannan fiber supplement of 1 gram was given to the subjects one hour before each meal. No changes were made to the diet or exercise habits of the patients. The study found that during the eight-week period, cholesterol levels were significantly reduced, and the glucomannan group had an average weight loss of 5.8 lbs.
Apple Cider VinegarÂ â€“ This product has been said to cure a variety of things, but one thing is for sure, that this active ingredient in our Grapefruit diet has proven in clinical trials to help people lose weight. The most researched and the most promising of apple cider vinegarâ€™s benefits are in the area of type 2 diabetes. Several studies have found that vinegar may help lower blood glucose levels. In 2004, a study cited in the American Diabetes Foundationâ€™s publicationÂ Diabetes CareÂ found that taking vinegar before meals significantly increased insulin sensitivity and dramatically reduced the insulin and glucose spikes that occur after meals. A follow-up study geared at testing vinegarâ€™s long-term effects yielded an unexpected but pleasant side effect: moderate weight loss. In this study, participants taking two tablespoons of vinegar prior to two meals per day lost an average of two pounds over the four-week period, and some lost up to four pounds.
The other two ingredients, Kelp and Soya Lechithin, help with dispersing the vitamin into your system more efficiently and regulation proper thyroid glandular functions.
All of these combine to form a powerful natural weight loss aid that has proven to be effective. Get healthier today with the Natural Grapefruit DietÂ® from Earthâ€™s Creation USA.*
