Patient One MediLean supplies a synergistic combination of three clinically supported ingredients—Meratrim®, Capsimax™ and chromium picolinate—in a convenient 1 capsule dose. This multi-functional formula supports lean muscle mass and reduced body fat by promoting lipolysis (fat breakdown) from improved adiponectin levels, thermogenesis (fat burning), and insulin-modulating activity. The natural ingredients in MediLean promote healthy weight management without the use of stimulants.
This unique ingredient is a proprietary blend of extracts from Sphaeranthus indicus flower heads and Garcinia mangostana fruit rind.
Meratrim® demonstrated positive weight management outcomes in three randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical studies. An 800 mg daily dose of this ingredient resulted in statistically significant reductions in body weight, BMI, waist and hip circumference that exceeded those achieved via diet and exercise alone. The botanical blend’s effect on body weight and body composition parameters occurred as early as 2 weeks and continued to increase during an 8-week trial.
Capsimax is a concentrated extract of capsaicinoids from red chili peppers (Capsicum annuum)—the naturally occurring compounds that cause the sensation of heat when consuming spicy foods. Capsimax targets several key areas of weight management, including appetite control, breakdown of fat stores, resting energy expenditure (metabolism) and thermogenesis.
Capsaicin stimulates thermogenesis in three ways. By triggering a burning sensation, tissues contract rapidly, leading to the burning of more calories. Capsaicin also stimulates the release of adrenaline in the body. This speeds up the metabolism and pushes the body to burn more calories and fat. Thirdly, its powerful burning sensation also cuts down on appetite, promoting reduced calorie consumption.
Capsimax is produced with a controlled-release technology that delivers effective levels of capsaicinoids without stomach irritation. This patented ingredient is backed by multiple studies supporting its role in effective weight management.
An essential mineral, chromium picolinate provides chromium that is bound to picolinic acid, which facilitates its absorption. In a study, chromium picolinate supplementation helped reduce carbohydrate intake and mood fluctuations. Studies suggest chromium helps maintain already normal glucose levels and insulin sensitivity.
