● Reduces calorie intake from fats and sugars
● Facilitates weight loss
0 Calorie is an innovative combination of plant extracts capable of reducing intestinal absorption of fats and sugars.
Ficus indica extract (Neopuntia™), awarded with prestigious international awards for its efficacy and quality, binds ingested fats with food, preventing its absorption in the intestine. Scientific studies show that 1 gram of Neopuntia™ binds up to 15-20 grams of saturated fat; this binding capacity exceeds that of any other known substance.
Recent studies, conducted with a mechanical model capable of faithfully simulating all the physiological conditions of the gastro-intestinal tract (pH, enzymatic concentrations, bile salt concentrations, etc.) have in fact shown that 2 g of Neopuntia™ were able to absorb over 28.3% of the overall saturated, unsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids present, limiting their absorption.
The extract is also traditionally used for its good hypoglycemic and lipid-lowering properties.
Phaseolamine is a plant-derived protein obtained from white kidney beans. It is able to influence the absorption of carbohydrates, as it reduces the activity of alpha-amylase enzymes, active in the digestion of starches.
Phaseolamine has a high affinity for pancreatic amylase to which it binds, reducing its enzymatic activity. In this way the complex carbohydrates, no longer transformed into simple sugars, are not absorbed, but eliminated with the faeces.
The new formulation contains Ascophyllum nodosum extract (ID-alG™), a brown algae grown with a 100% green method and which contains a group of substances known as phlorotannins.
These have shown clinically significant enzyme inhibition properties up to 50% on lipase and amylase, the enzymes responsible for the digestion of fats and sugars.
This property translates into the ability to reduce the absorption of calories from these macro nutrients, resulting in weight loss over time, with the continuous use of 0 Calories.
Subjects who reacted most successfully to ID-alG™ treatment had a BMI <32. Another property highlighted by clinical studies carried out with ID-alG™, confirming the inhibitory activity of amylase is the reduction of glycated hemoglobin Hbg. ID-alG™ has no adverse effects, it is contraindicated only in subjects intolerant to iodine intake (content equal to 37.5 mcg per tablet).
The intake of 0 Calorie is therefore effective in those who intend to lose weight, control their sugar intake but do not completely give up some pleasures of the table.
0 Calorie is a supplement used in order to reduce daily calorie intake and promote body weight control.
It can be a useful complement to improve the blood lipid profile.
Take 1 tablet, twice a day, before main meals. The dosage can also be doubled in case of high fat and sugar intake from the diet.
