Probiotic Hx Weight contains Bifidobacterium breve B-3, backed by clinical research studies and shown to reduce inflammation and body fat.i
In a real-world study, men and women taking Bifidobacterium breve B-3 for 12 weeks showed significant reductions in body fat accumulation and metabolic markers for inflammation. ii
BergacynFF® is a patented extract blend of bergamot citrus and Cynara cardunculus, clinically proven to support normal liver fat levels and promote healthy weight loss in overweight individuals. Native to Italy’s southern coasts, BergacynFF® actives grow in a unique microclimate fostered by the abrupt contrast of the Appinnine Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea.
BergacynFF® was trialed in 2 published, clinical studies. Study #1 evaluated BergacynFF® at 600 mg/day over 12 weeks in subjects with Metabolic Syndrome and increased baseline liver fat levels. BergacynFF® more effectively attenuated liver fat levels and body weight than placebo, even with imposed baseline BMI-assigned caloric restrictions in both groups. iii
A study on Bergamot provided evidence suggesting a potential protective role of bergamot extracts, in particular bergamot flavonoids, in the management of different features of Metabolic Syndrome, due to their anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory and lipid-lowering effects. iv
