FAT LOSS / BODY COMPOSITION
CLA – The most well-established benefit of CLA is its fat-fighting power. Successful human studies show CLAs unique ability to build muscle mass and promote body fat loss in healthy, overweight, and obese participants. You read that right, no matter where you are starting CLA will burn fat and help you build muscle mass!
TARGET BELLY FAT!
CLA is the powerhouse of TONE because it is exceptionally good at burning visceral fat, the kind hiding in between muscles and organs, and especially helpful for belly fat. Research published in the International Journal of Obesity found that a group of overweight men taking CLA lost mostly belly fat and reduced their waistlines by 1 inch without making ANY diet or lifestyle changes! In a similar study, women lost mostly belly and thigh fat with CLA and reduced their waistlines by 1.2 inches!
The Science behind CLA
CLA (Conjugated linoleic acid) can affect your weight loss through several pathways. Several studies show that the 10,12 CLA isomer acts on PPAR-gamma receptors to inhibit the genes responsible for fat storage and adipocyte (fat cell) production, preventing weight gain from the start. At the same time, CLA increases your body’s energy expenditure, helping you to burn fat faster than you build it.
TRIGGER FAT BURNING / CURB APPETITE
GLA, just like CLA, is an omega-6 fatty acid which triggers fat burning instead of fat storage. Both are good for preventing weight gain after you’ve lost weight, and both help to control appetite. We added GLA to TONE because they accomplish these goals differently. GLA (gamma linolenic acid) raises your metabolism by making brown fat (adipose tissue) in the body burn calories for energy and to keep your body warm. Usually, brown fat is not as active in overweight people and that’s where GLA comes in. It can help activate brown fat and burn off the “white” fat that accumulates under your skin all over your body. GLA is also a good appetite suppressant since it raises the levels of serotonin so you feel full and eat less. A study at the Welsh National School of Medicine in Cardiff, found that participants lost between 9 to 11 pounds in 6 weeks while taking GLA.
THE UNIVERSAL ANTIOXIDANT
ALA (Alpha lipoic acid) is a fatty acid which is often referred to as the ‘universal antioxidant’. Recently, attention has moved to its potential for weight loss and muscle gains. This powerful antioxidant is both water and fat-soluble, which means that it works inside and outside cells to destroy harmful free radicals. Inside cells, ALA works in the mitochondria (the energy producing part of our cells) and is an important cofactor in the conversion of glucose to energy. However, glucose first needs to be attached to insulin before it can be carried into cells. Because ALA mimics the actions of insulin, it helps to improve glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity, which means that more glucose is transported into cells and less glucose is stored as fat.
Alpha Lipoic Acid for Weight Loss
The ALA in TONE works by helping to store carbohydrates from food as glycogen in muscle cells rather than turning it into fat. For this reason, it can be particularly useful for people who consume high-calorie diets rich in carbohydrates. ALA has also become popular with bodybuilders in recent years to help build muscle while losing fat. The increase in glucose uptake means that more glucose is transported into muscle cells rather than fat cells, which works to increase muscle size and reduce fat accumulation.
OMEGA-3s AND FAT LOSS
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential to the health of all human beings. However, the human body is incapable of manufacturing omega-3 fatty acids. Hence, these fatty acids can only be obtained from foods and supplements. That’s where TONE comes in. The DHA and EPA in TONE prevent pre-fat cells from becoming fat cells by killing them. As a result, they may help in weight loss by decreasing the accumulation of fat in the body. In addition, they reprogram the genes so that carbohydrates are broken down by the body and not stored as fat. These Omega-3 fatty acids increase your rate of metabolism and blood flow, which in turn assists in weight loss.
