BOCA RATON, Fla., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Smart for Life(R), the trailblazing company featuring weight management products will begin adding Lepticore(R) to its product line this month. Lepticore(R) has been created by a leading pharmaceutical research company which has conducted randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical trials, which is considered the "Gold Standard" in product efficacy validation, and has appeared in the peer-reviewed journal Lipids in Health and Disease.
The structure and functional claims, substantiated by the company's FDA and FTC Counsel at Baker & Hostetler, are as follows:
- Supports healthy cardiovascular function
- Promotes healthy inflammation response
- Helps diminish the aging effects of pro-oxidative cellular damage
- Helps promote weight loss
- Helps boost metabolism
- Helps control hunger
- Helps you feel fuller longer
This is a brief overview of the study:
The study was an 8-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled design involving 92 obese (mean BMI > 30 kg/m^2) participants (37 males; 55 females; ages 19-52; mean age = 30.7). The participants were randomly divided into three groups: placebo, Lepticore(R) formula A (low dose) and Lepticore(R) formula B (high dose). A total of 12 anthropomorphic and serological measurements were taken at the beginning of the study and after 2, 4, 6, and 8 weeks of treatment.
Compared to the placebo group, the two active groups showed statistically significant differences on all 12 variables by week 8. These included four anthropomorphic variables (body weight, body fat, waist and hip size) and eight measures of serological levels (plasma total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, triglycerides, blood glucose, serotonin, leptin, C-reactive protein). The two active groups also showed significant intra-group differences on all 12 variables between study onset and week 8.
Lepticore(R) is a great addition to provide efficacy and safe weight loss for the entire family. It complements the current Smart for Life(R) Cookie Diet product line that also includes these health-improving ingredients such as HeroFiber(TM), Inulin, Plant Sterols as well as flax seed and fish oils.
Smart for Life(R) weight management products are made without toxic preservatives and include a proprietary Super Fiber blend known as HeroFiber(TM). HeroFiber(TM) is also used in a drink its sister company Better Health Beverage launched called underWAY(TM). Many people use the cookies not just for weight loss but as a healthy meal replacement that is easy, convenient and actually costs less than they currently spend on food.
