Manuscript: Metabolaid® Combination of Lemon Verbena and Hibiscus Flower Extract

We are happy to announce that a new study with our weight loss product Metabolaid has been recently published.

In this report, our experts Dr. Nuria Caturla and Dr. Jonathan Jones identify the mechanisms of action of the ingredient, as well as the synergisms of its components.

Specifically, Metabolaid was shown, in mice, to increase AMPK expression in the adipose tissue and liver, which acts as a metabolic switch in the cells, activating lipid degradation and inhibiting adipogenesis. Also, the ingredient acts upon the appetite-regulating gut hormones adiponectin and leptin.

These effects resulted in the treated mice, which were on a high-fat diet, to weigh less, present less body fat, improved lipidic and glycemic blood profile, and less proinflammatory markers when compared to control mice on the same diet. A

Correlation between Depression and Heart Disease, and how Exercise cures both

There is a strong correlation between depression and heart disease. Several studies have shown that those with depression have increased risk of arrhythmia, while individuals with heart disease are more likely to be depressed. So how can this vicious cycle be stopped? Well, recent studies have shown that exercise can be as effective as anti-depressant drugs, and cuts the risk of heart disease by half. This is especially relevant at mid- and advanced age, where the prevalence for these two conditions are higher.
