Solgar Thermogenic Complex with Svetol is a specialised formula containing several nutrients and botanicals targeted on supporting the body’s metabolism.
This blend contains ingredients such as choline, inositol, chromium and L-methionine which support the process of converting nutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and fats) into energy. The added botanicals (green coffee, green tea, cayenne and black pepper) provide a holistic approach to help support an optimal working metabolism.Choline is a water-soluble micronutrient which supports the process of metabolizing fats (lipids) into energy. Transporting fat, both cholesterol and triglycerides, from the liver to the cells in the body also requires choline and it is responsible for keeping the liver clear from fat build-up.
Choline further contributes to normal homocysteine metabolism.
Inositol, also known as vitamin B8, is another water-soluble structure and it forms a component of every cell membrane in the body. It functions in a similar way to choline. Inositol, although technically not an essential B vitamin because it can be synthesised in the body, is still a very important nutrient.
L-Methionine is an essential amino acid playing an important role in the making of proteins and peptides. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are needed in several internal functions of the body. They are classified as “essential” or “non-essential”, with essential amino acids meaning they cannot be manufactured by the body and must be supplied in the diet to maintain good all-round health. Amino acids can be further used by the body to create hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters, antibodies and nutrient carriers.
Chromium is a trace mineral which is required by the body for healthy functioning. Minerals, just like vitamins, support your body to perform many different functions. Chromium plays a role in the metabolism, where it converts nutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins and fats into energy. Furthermore is has an important role in balancing blood glucose levels.
Chromium contributes to:
- Normal macronutrient metabolism
- Maintenance of normal blood glucose levels
Apart from key nutrients, this potent formula contains the botanicals green coffee, green tea, cayenne and black pepper.
Green coffee bean extract comes from coffee beans which have not been roasted of processed, making them a source of polyphenols.
Green tea leaf comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant and, other than black and oolong teas, its leaves have not been fermented.
Cayenne has been used for millennia as an herbal remedy as it contains capsaicin which is a phytochemical.
Black pepper is one of the most widely used spices, as well as being believed to have benefits outside of bringing flavour to foods.
Solgar Thermogenic Complex has a 2 a day dosage, to be taken as easy to absorb vegetable capsules, providing a rich blend of nutrients and botanicals, supporting a healthy metabolism.
