Getting a good night sleep, exercising moderately, and preparing nutrient dense foods like fruits,
vegetables and whole grains, are all corner stones of a good weight loss plan. Supplements may help
support your weight loss efforts by reducing carbohydrate cravings and supporting healthy blood
sugar levels. Use this guide to find out which energy support supplement might be right for you.
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant that may help support weight loss and healthy blood sugar levels. Your body produces alpha lipoic naturally, but it can also be found in foods such as spinach, broccoli and red meat. Supplementing with Alpha Lipoic Acid may help support weight loss over time, possibly by decreasing feelings of hunger.
Our Blood Sugar Balance supplement combines two powerful ingredients, Benfotiamine and alpha lipoic acid. Benfotiamine is a form of vitamin B1 that is found in foods such as onion, and garlic. Alpha lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant. Alpha lipoic acid works to support healthy blood sugar levels while Benfotiamine may help lessen the damage caused by high glucose levels.
5-HTP, or 5-hydroxytryptophan, is naturally produced by the body and is used to make serotonin. Serotinin is known for being the 'happy hormone' but it also plays an important role in appetite and digestion. Supplementing with 5-HTP may help improve feelings of fullness.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine is naturally found in the body and is made from an amino acid and plays a role in the metabolism of fat. Acetyl-L-Carnitine is converted from L-Carnitine which may aid in weight loss.
Our appetite support contains a blend of proprietary ingredients that support healthy appetite, blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Phase 2® carb controller™ is made from white kidney beans and may reduce the digestion and absorption of starches. It works alongside NeOpuntia®, a powder sourced from cactus, and chromium picolinate to help support healthy cholesterol levels. Gymnema sylvestre® may help reduce sugar cravings.
Chromium is an essential mineral that supports normal blood sugar levels by enhancing the action of insulin. It is directly involved in carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism. Supplementing with chromium may help support healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
Our green tea extract is sourced to contain 90% total tea catechins and 70% epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), for supporting optimal cellular function and antioxidant protection. Green tea may support weight loss in individuals who have a BMI in the overweight or obese category.
How else can you support your goals? Here are some
additional tips to get you started on your weight loss
Rather than starting with what you imagine your 'ideal diet' will
be, base your changes off your current eating habits. Could you
be adding more nutrient dense options to some of the meals you already eat?
Explore the reasons why you are looking to lose weight. Do you
want to reduce your prescription medications, chase around your grandkids easier, have more energy? Often times, you can meet your goals by focusing on choosing nutrient dense foods rather than cutting calories.
Demonizing foods, or labeling some foods 'good' and others
'bad' can lead to guilt or a restrictive mentality. Allow yourself to enjoy all foods in moderation.
Our weight support supplements may help support healthy blood sugar levels, healthy cholesterol and some may even support a healthy appetite. Rather than supporting rapid weight loss, which can be unsustainable, our weight support supplements help support your weight loss journey over time. Research suggests that those who lose 1-2lbs a week have better success at maintaining their weight loss than those who lose weight more quickly. Take our assessment for recommendations tailored to your personal goals.
When it comes to your health, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Our nutritionists look for the most bioavailable versions of nutrients making them optimal for your health and goals. We focus on what makes you unique—your lifestyle, your diet, even your medications—and uses that insight to tailor a supplement plan to your one-of-a-kind health profile.

In addition to diet, exercise and stress management, supplements may help support your weight loss goals.
Sustainable weight loss can take time. Rapid weight loss usually results in future weight gain. Slower weight loss (1-2 lbs per week) is more sustainable and you're more likely to keep it off. In addition to diet and exercise, getting enough sleep and managing stress can also play an important role in weight loss.
Weight loss supplements can help support your weight loss but they won't do all the work for you. Its also important to remember that you can still lose weight without the use of supplements. If you do choose to take a supplement for healthy weight support, be sure to continue to choose nutrient dense foods and daily moderate exercise.
The majority of the research on our weight loss supplements is conducted over a 12-week period. We would recommend trying out a weight support supplement for 90 days to evaluate its effectiveness. Keep in mind that other factors like lifestyle changes, can also effect your weight.
More isn't always better when it comes to supplements. We recommend starting with one weight loss supplement at a time so that you can evaluate its effectiveness. Additionally, some of the supplements serve similar functions (like curbing hunger), so it's best to try one at a time. There is no strong research to support that combining multiple weight loss supplements will lead to increased weight loss.
