Promises are made and broken every day in the world of weight loss. It is easy for people who have pursued diet promises and had them snatched away by reality to be skeptical of new claims? The only way to really address concerns, however, is to look at the science behind the promises that are being made. Plexus Slim promises to help you lose weight, without meal replacements, through a proprietary blend of ingredients that control appetite, regulate blood sugar, and boost levels of healthy lipids. Here is the science behind those claims.
Appetite and its regulation (sometimes called appestat) have been the subjects of much research in recent years. Breakthroughs have included the discovery of leptin, a hormone that reduces appetite, and the realization that more than one gut hormone controls appetite. In fact, appestat may be one of the most complex control mechanisms in the human body. It is this complexity that has made it difficult to develop a magic bullet to control appetite.
Despite the fact that no magic bullet has been developed, science has still learned enough to make some headway in appetite control. Plexus Slim uses the latest scientific findings to control appetite through the use of several different. Starting with compassion and solid science has led to a blend of chlorogenic acid, alpha lipoic acid, and several other ingredients that work and work well.
The first component in Plexus Slim is chlorogenic acid, an antioxidant found in green coffee beans, potatoes, peaches, and prunes. Research suggests that chlorogenic acid regulates glucose levels and thus insulin levels, thereby helping to level out glucose release after a meal. Preventing glucose spikes has been shown to not only help to control appetite, by avoiding the crash after the spike, but to also help to ensure that the body converts the glucose to energy rather than fat. Research further suggests that chlorogenic acid may help to modulate gastrointestinal hormone levels, thereby reducing hunger directly.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
The next ingredient that Plexus Slim employs to improve weight loss is alpha lipoic acid (ALA), a compound naturally found in all animals and marketed as an antioxidant and even as a pharmaceutical in some countries. ALA plays a key role in metabolism, helping the body convert carbohydrates into energy rather than fat. It is obvious, given its role in metabolism, how ALA supplementation can aid in weight loss, but there is more to how this natural compound works than was first suspected.
New research indicates that ALA may help to regulate insulin levels by increasing insulin sensitivity. This is especially important in preventing or even reversing the development of type 2 diabetes and the weight gain associated with the disease. As an added benefit, ALA has been shown to fight off the effects of aging, particularly as they apply to cognitive decline. Some studies even suggest that ALA can help to protect against Alzheimer's disease. ALA is not only an appetite suppressant, it is also an insulin regulator and perhaps even an anti-aging compound.
The benefits of Plexus Slim are enhanced through the addition of Stevia and Luo Han Guo (alternatives to sugar) and through a precise, proprietary blend of garcinia camboiga and the ingredients discussed above. The bottom line is that research supports the use of Plexus Slim as a dietary supplement and weight loss aid. There may not yet be a magic bullet for weight loss, but proper use of Plexus Slim, combined with diet and exercise, can get individuals closer to a miracle weight loss solution than just about any other product on the market.
