RE·BODY® Meratrim® Fruit & Flower Formula contains the same clinical amount of Garcinia mangostana and Sphaeranthus indicus (800 mg per day) as shown in the published clinical studies to help start weight loss with overweight participants, when combined with a 2,000-calorie per day diet and a walking program of 30 minutes per day, five days per week. Take a look at the results of the randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled research: *†
Derived from Sphaeranthus indicus flower and Garcinia mangostana fruit rind, this non-stimulant proprietary formula powered by authentic branded Meratrim® offers the clinical amount of 800 mg per day.* †
Both Sphaeranthus indicus and Garcinia mangostana have been used traditionally in Southeast Asia.
So why were they specifically chosen for the trademarked Meratrim® blend? Over the course of several years, hundreds of extracts of plants were screened for their anti-adipogenic and lipolytic activities. Two extracts exhibiting potent anti-adipogenic and lipolytic potential were further assessed individually and in combination at various concentrations and ratios.
Sphaeranthus indicus and Garcinia mangostana had among the best inhibitor effects on adipogenesis and lipolysis and were chosen for further clinical evaluation.* †
Let's take a deeper look at these two extracts:
One of the extracts in the Meratrim proprietary blend,Sphaeranthus indicus extract, also called East Globe Indian Thistle, is widely used in traditional Ayurveda to help promote health. Ayurveda, a holistic practice that started in India over 5,000 years ago, reveals that ancient Indians had a rich knowledge of the health supporting value of different plants. Many herbs and blends used in traditional system have now been investigated scientifically.* †
The other extract is Garcinia mangostana, Mangosteen fruit rind extract, derived from the rind of the fruit, not the flesh, an important distinction. It is different than mango or Garcinia cambogia. Mangosteen fruits were mentioned generations ago in Chinese records.* †
