LeptiTrim6 is hands down the very
best weight-loss formula today. But
I did not realize how good it is until
I signed up to become a volunteer call firefighter.
I needed to lose 20 to 25 pounds for my medical
test. Don’t get me wrong: I wasn’t fat. But
I did have a paunch. I don’t anymore.
I told Immune Tree’s president Anthony
Kleinsmith, PhD, about my dilemma,
and he urged me to try the company’s
LeptiTrim6, which I began several
months ago—and the results have
been phenomenal. I’ve lost all the
weight I needed. I did it without
stimulants. And it wasn’t that difficult.
Just two Lepti-Trim6 shakes a day and
sensible eating was all it took.
APPETITE HORMONE SPURS DRAMATIC WEIGHT LOSS
The LeptiTrim6 miracle is based on leptin, a weight loss
molecule that researchers are learning plays a
critical role in fat loss.
“Leptin is the key hormone involved with the
storage of fat,” say Mastering Leptin authors Byron
J. Richards, CCN, and Mary Guignon Richards.
“Problems with leptin center on the inability of the
brain to properly perceive the hormone. When this
happens, an individual is prone to a metabolic rate
that is stuck in slow motion and significant hypothyroid
symptoms. All the while fat progressively accumulates
in all the wrong places.”
Meanwhile, the Journal of the American Medical
Association has reported on the leptin-weight
loss connection. In a randomized, double-blind,
placebo-controlled, multicenter study, it was found
that weight loss “increased with increasing doses
of leptin among all subjects.” At the highest leptin
dose, more than 95 percent of the subjects’ weight
loss was from fat.
Manufactured in the fat cells, leptin tells the
brain whether the body has sufficient energy stores,
or fat. The hormone sends satiety signals to the
hypothalamus—the brain’s eating control center—
and tells us when we can stop eating, says Dr. Julio
Licinio, a professor of psychiatry and medicine at
the UCLA School of Medicine.
Purdue University Professor Ki-Han Kim is also at the forefront of research on leptin. His research
provides new information about how this weight-reducing
protein works. All of the reports and research
on the obese (ob) gene and leptin thus far
have assumed that the protein acts by causing a
hormonal response in the brain, causing the body
to feel satiated.
Kim has discovered that these findings are only
partly correct. He was able to show that production
in fat cells also was slowed by leptin. The finding
gives scientists the first indication that leptin suppresses
biochemical reactions in fat cells without
the participation of the brain.
Kim has found that the ob gene causes the
muscle cells to produce leptin and suppresses a
gene that produces an enzyme known as acetyl-
CoA carboxylase, or ACC, which is essential for
UNDERSTANDING LEPTIN-BASED SUPPLEMENTS
The idea of using leptin as a supplement is to add
just enough of the hormone to your system to support
your body’s natural leptin response.
“When a person loses weight, leptin concentration
in the blood is reduced,” notes researcher
Jeffrey Friedman, MD, PhD, of The Rockefeller University.
“Low leptin levels cause the human body to
go through changes that reduce the rate the human
body burns its calories. The result is a decrease in
the rate of weight reduction and increased appetite.
Leptin may be involved in regulation of these processes,
and low leptin levels may explain the high
failure rate of dieting. Leptin treatment may change
these effects and result in an increased rate of
weight loss and increase the success of maintaining
a reduced weight.”
In order for the body to properly utilize leptin, it
also requires both insulin and insulin-like growth factor
1 (IGF-1). In fact, if you are obese and producing
less leptin you are also low in IGF-1, says colostrum
expert Al Fox, PhD. “Without insulin and IGF-1, both
of which are present in colostrum, the triggers that
enable your body to use leptin effectively don’t occur,”
he says. “You need the combination. Colostrum
provides all of the factors that enable the body
to use leptin. In order for the body to use leptin, the
cells of the pancreas must fi rst bind to insulin. In
this sense, colostrum, which is already a source of
leptin, makes the most efficacious choice.”
