The Effects of Fitrum
Fitrum is a dietary supplement which according to the labeling contains 25 mg of Teavigo, a green tea extract which is said to be concentrated and contain 90 percent epigallocatechin-3-gallate, and 25 mg of L-carnitine, an amino acid. While the manufacturers and distributors of Fitrum claim a primary health benefit of weight loss, it may have some other effects as well. As with all dietary supplements, seek the advice of a medical professional before using Fitrum
One of the primary sales claims of those selling Fitrum supplements is weight loss and while some believe that green tea may promote insulin sensitivity in some individuals and lead to weight loss, the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center states that these effects were not shown in obese men or in those with type II diabetes who are often overweight. The University of Maryland Medical Center does state that some weight loss attributes have been shown, likely due to the fat-burning presence of polyphenols and possible caffeine content, which may also act as an appetite suppressant.
Green tea is high in ECGC and the contents of Fitrum state that a highly concentrated form of green tea extract, known as Teavigo is used. According to the labeling, Teavigo may contain as much as 90 percent ECGC, which is known to be a potent anti-oxidant. Anti-oxidants may help to prevent diseases of aging and oxidative stress from the environment. The Mayo Clinic published results from a 2010 study of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) which showed that ECGC, extracted from green tea may have some benefit in fighting certain types of cancer, however more studies are needed. In addition, some constituents of green tea may interact with some chemotherapy medications and should not be taken together. Talk to your doctor about all of your medical conditions and medicines, including dietary supplements that you may be taking.
The University of Maryland Medical Center reports that green tea has been shown to be beneficial in lowering bad cholesterol and raising good cholesterol. In addition, the other ingredient in Fitrum, L-carnitine is an amino acid analog that is partly responsible for the transport and utilization of fats as an energy source for the muscles. Increased utilization of these fats may help to lower cholesterol and prevent atherosclerotic plaque buildup in the blood vessels which may decrease the risk for diseases such as heart attack and stroke, though it is not clear whether the dose of 25 mg of L-carnitine is high enough to show results.
Today, with the power of technology, science and medicine has extracted the major health component and active ingredient in Camellia Sinensis or Green Tea – EGCG. Further, EGCG has been purified leading to a natural compound with a purity of 90% known as TEAVIGO, proven to promote health, protect the body system, prevent disease and greatly reduce body fat accumulation and increase fat oxidation.
Rapid-Fire Health Benefits: FITRUM’s EGCG component is a powerful anti-oxidant that deactivates free radical to lessen the odds of cancer, lowers LDL cholesterol levels that reduces the risk of hypertension and prevents a wide array of disease including cardiovascular conditions, gastrointestinal disorders, periodontal disease and dental cavities among others.
Fat-Buster and Weight Loss: The EGCG component in FITRUM has been tested to enhance metabolism that burns fat, reduces body weight and exerts anti-obesity activity. Controlled clinical studies with human volunteers treated with the green tea extract high in EGCG resulted in significant reductions in visceral fat area, body fat ratio, weight and Body Mass Index (BMI). An increase in energy expenditures and rise in metabolic rates speeds up fat oxidation and contributes to weight loss. ECGC strikes to strengthen the body and make it slim and healthy.
L-Carnitine; The Amino Acid like nutrient that’s good for the heart and bad for the fat. Fats that are not burned are stored in the body and this can be a major problem. FITRUM’s L-Carnitine component burns fat and converts it into useful energy for physical exertion and most especially to keep the heart healthy.
Build up the health, Not the fat! L-Carnitine deficiency are manifested as low energy levels and muscular weakness aside from mental confusion, angina (heart pain), and weight gain. Cardiovascular health also suffers a major blow if fat is stored as the supply of energy is insufficient to make the heart perform it’s normal function.
Release the energy, Break down the fat! L-Carnitine found in fitrum has a two-stage complementary action – It burns the fat then turns it into energy that the heart uses to function properly. Since the heart derives 70% of it’s energy from fat breakdown, scientific studies and clinical tests prove that L-Carnitine supplement assures good weight management and healthy heart maintenance.
