Losing weight is and can be a real struggle. And it seems it is usually women who are the ones trying to accomplish that. In a recent survery at least one sixth of the women were trying to lose weight. That’s interesingn as almost 37 per cent of men are overweight to obese compared to 24 per cent of women.
Imagine the numbers of people trying to lose weight or at least trying to get down to a healthy weight from what they currently are at. This might be difficult for those trying to shed pounds, but it certainly isn’t all that bad for the diet industry – which has literally quadrupled since 1988.
Diet books still are still on book best-seller lists. Tabloids trumpet 10 Day Wonder Diets, and sales sky rocket as millions search for new ways to beat the bulge. What’s new in the weight loss world?
A brand new kid on the block (patent pending in fact), Citricoma comes from the maker of Cortislim. Apparently Citricoma is a new patent-pending blend of Citrus PMF (polymethoxylated flavones) and Eurycoma longifolia, for the healthy weight loss/management market.
Reading the theory behind this new product would lead one to believe they may have a good idea. The question will be if it is as effective as they indicate it may be.
Citrus peel extract includes Polymethoxylated Flavones (PMFs), particularly tangeretin, sinensetin, and nobilitin, which maintain cholesterol level and promote cardiovascular health. These super flavonoids have 3-fold potency in reducing cholesterol levels as compared to other citrus flavonoids. Citrus flavonoids reduce liver and adipose tissue, promoting healthy blood sugar control and weight loss.
Eurycoma (Eurycoma Longifolia, aka Tongkat ali and Malaysian ginseng) is known to increase energy levels among other things. It is used to help maintain normal (low) cortisol and normal (high) testosterone levels during the stress of weight loss. Effective doses of Eurycoma help stop the “yo-yo” diet effect when a dieter’s initial weight loss of a few pounds sends the body into a catabolic state, leading to binge eating and fat storage. Inhibiting or reducing the cortisol spike associated with weight loss can make it easier for a person to control their appetite. Controlling the cortisol and testosterone levels helps prevent the body from increasing fat storage and increases a person’s baseline energy.
It seems the jury is still out on this new product, but research results should soon be coming back from various groups who have tried this new product.
