Todays’ healthcare system has recognized the advantages of using big data to improve the quality of healthcare.
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
nother relevant result is that Metabolaid presented similar or better results than Garcinia cambogia, which was used at 2.5 times higher dosage.
There is an enormous amount of information and news regarding the risks of being overweight for your health, especially due to recent studies indicating that the prevalence has dramatically increased in the past 30 years.
Our first branded ingredient PLX is a botanical extract powder from Lippia citriodora (Lemon Verbena, Aloysia Triphylla) that contains the highest verbascoside content with lemon verbena in the market. Lemon verbena have been reported in traditional medicines. The leaves of Lemon verbena are used for the treatment of fever, neuropathic and stomach pains, dizziness, headaches, hypnotic, anemia, migraine, and cold symptoms (1)
A new report by the World Health Organization (WHO) has recently published a study regarding the prevalence of obesity in children around the globe (related post). One of the more remarkable results indicates that the highest rates in child obesity is ironically in the countries where one of the healthiest diets in the world is born: the Mediterranean.
The reason for this is mainly due to what is observed worldwide; the increasingly sedentary lifestyle, and the high amount of processed, high fat/sugar foods in the daily menus of the children. Our lifestyle has changed dramatically in recent years, and our children have suffered the consequences.
Fortunately, the intervention programs implemented in recent years seem to working. In this sense, a 2-7% decrease has been reported in Spain, Italy, Greece and Portugal. But rather than celebrate, we must work harder in lowering this prevalence, as it is still of the highest in the world. Although it can be a daunting task, we must make a special effort at home with our children, to increase their daily physical activity, and add more fruits, vegetables and healthier alternatives in their diet. We must do this, for the sake of their future health.

That tobacco consumption has side effects on your cardiovascular system, lungs, and overall lifespan are well-known. Smoking has been described by the World Health Organization as the single greatest preventable cause of disease, disability, and death globally. It is estimated that tobacco kills more than 7 million people every year and only in the EU is responsible for nearly 700,000 deaths every year. Around 50% of smokers die prematurely (on average 14 years earlier).
Monteloeder has coined the concept of “Digital Nutraceutical”, which combines food & nutrition supplements with digital technology, resulting in a complete, personalized health solution.
