In the ever-evolving landscape of natural health strategies, understanding the metabolic benefits of specific products can be a game-changer. Starting today you can revolutionize your metabolic health journey with two breakthrough products from Provita Nutrition, Berberine TPGS, and Metabolix.
Both formulas are meticulously crafted with science-backed ingredients and designed to optimize your metabolism, enhance energy levels, and support overall well-being.
Berberine TPGS: Turbocharge Your Insulin Sensitivity
Berberine, a natural compound derived from various plants, has gained recognition as a metabolic powerhouse. However, when combined with Tocophersolan,1 Chitosan,2 and Sodium Caprate3,4 in Provita Berberine TPGS, its effectiveness reaches unprecedented heights.
Berberine has numerous benefits including its ability to regulate blood sugar levels along with hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels,5 lower total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol6 (often referred to as "bad" cholesterol), and triglycerides6 while increasing HDL cholesterol ("good" cholesterol)6 and improve gut microbiota disorders.7
Berberine can also ignite your metabolism due to two key benefits:
1. Enhancing Insulin Sensitivity: One of the key metabolic benefits of Berberine TPGS lies in its ability to activate insulin receptor sites.8 Enhanced insulin sensitivity is a critical factor in managing blood sugar levels and mitigating insulin resistance. When insulin sensitivity improves, your body becomes more efficient at using insulin to transport glucose into cells, reducing the risk of elevated blood sugar and related complications, increasing the signal to burn glucose for energy, and reducing the signal to store calories as fat.7,9
2. AMPK Activation: Berberine TPGS is also a potent activator of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), a cellular energy regulator.10,11 AMPK activation is like flipping a switch that encourages your body to burn fat stores and stimulates glucose metabolism (burning glucose (aka carbohydrates) to produce energy through efficient glucose uptake) and lipid metabolism (burning fat for fuel).12 This can lead to increased energy levels, improved metabolic function, and better weight management.13
Berberine has also been found to inhibit the activity of certain enzymes responsible for fat storage (PAPs),14 inhibit the differentiation and growth of fat cells (adipocytes),15 and promote the recruitment and activation of brown adipose tissue which helps burn calories and reduce weight.16
Metabolix: A Metabolic Powerhouse
Metabolix is a comprehensive blend of natural ingredients carefully selected to complement the metabolic benefits of Berberine TPGS:
Gynostemma pentaphyllum 10:1 Extract (500 mg): This adaptogen supports metabolic efficiency, reduces fatigue, and enhances energy levels. Its role in activating AMPK and supporting weight loss further amplifies its contribution to your metabolic health.17,18
Hesperidin (Citrus sp.) (300 mg): Another powerful AMPK activator, Hesperidin also promotes vascular health and circulation, while also supporting healthy weight loss and improved metabolic function.19,20
Goldenseal 10:1 Extract (Hydrastis canadensis) (200 mg): Goldenseal extract aids digestion and helps maintain steady blood sugar levels, vital for overall metabolic balance. It is also a natural source of Berberine.
Fenugreek 20:1 Extract (Trigonella foenum-graecum) (200 mg): Fenugreek is renowned for promoting healthy blood sugar levels and supporting weight management.21
Cordyceps sinensis 10:1 Extract (100 mg): Cordyceps enhances cellular energy production, providing you with the vitality needed for an active lifestyle. It also includes a natural extract called Cordycepin, a potent AMPK activator that helps improve performance and supports weight loss.22,23
Alpha Lipoic Acid (32 mg): This potent antioxidant safeguards cellular health and supports efficient metabolism.24,25
Vitamin B5 (Calcium Pantothenate) (30 mg): Vitamin B5 plays a pivotal role in energy metabolism and overall well-being.26
The combination of ingredients in Metabolix not only help regulate blood sugar and stimulate insulin sensitivity, but also are powerful AMPK activators and have been clinically studied to help fat reduction and weight loss.
When you combine Berberine TPGS and Metabolix, you're creating a powerhouse protocol for metabolic health:
1. Enhanced Insulin Sensitivity: Berberine TPGS optimizes insulin receptor sites, making your body more responsive to insulin, which can lead to better blood sugar control.
2. AMPK Activation: These two products combined are nature’s most powerful AMPK activators, boosting your cellular energy production and supporting healthy weight management.
3. Comprehensive Support: Metabolix's carefully selected ingredients complement Berberine TPGS, offering a holistic approach to metabolic wellness.
4. Improved Energy Levels: AMPK activation enhances energy production, helping you feel more energetic and vital in your day-to-day activities.
The combination of Provita Berberine TPGS and Metabolix can be a game-changing strategy for those looking to optimize their metabolic health. By improving insulin sensitivity and activating AMPK, you're not only supporting better blood sugar control but also taking significant steps toward achieving your weight management goals.
As with any supplement regimen, consult with a healthcare professional to determine the best approach for your individual needs and enjoy the benefits of these remarkable products. Your journey to improved metabolic health starts here!
