It also provides extra energy while supporting muscle growth and the body’s natural healthy inflammatory response.
Exclusively endorsed by Dr. Johari Saad, “The King of Tongkat Ali,” AlivEL® 100 is created utilizing a proprietary natural water extraction process that produces one of the most effective, biologically active, and highest potency Tongkat Ali extracts available.
This proprietary formula of patented AlivEL® 100 with Citrus PMF-Source® and eriocitrin delivers all the benefits of AlivEL® 100 we desire…
Plus the added potential benefits
Metabolism is defined as the aggregation of life sustaining chemical reactions that take place in the human body and can be divided into anabolism and catabolism. Catabolism is the part of metabolism that involves the breakdown of large molecules into smaller pieces to produce and at the same time save, energy. Physical stress such as during a weight loss program, can force the body into a catabolic state, in which the body experiences muscle wasting, lower resting metabolic rate (RMR- with corresponding reduced calorie expenditure and lower perceived energy levels) and weight gain in the form of fat. High cortisol (catabolic stress hormone) levels and low testosterone (anabolic hormone) levels is a characteristic sign of the catabolic state. On the other hand, in the anabolic state the body experiences opposite effects, namely muscle growth or maintenance, optimal metabolic rate and weight loss in the form of fat. Also the anabolic state can be characterized by relatively low cortisol level and high testosterone level.
A research-validated combination of AlivEL® 100 with citrus PMF-source and eriocitrin (for maintaining cortisol/testosterone balance and for inhibiting excessive abdominal fat storage) utilizes the mechanism of ‘metabolic balance’ to help ensure belly fat reduction, simultaneously enhancing mood and stamina naturally.
Promotes healthy weight loss, maintains healthy cholesterol levels, and helps dieters maintain high energy levels by reducing the body’s normal shift to a catabolic state during weight loss.
AlivEL® 100 with Citrus PMF-Source® and eriocitrin particularly tangeretin, sinensetin, and nobilitin, are known to have health benefits in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels and promoting cardiovascular health.
AlivEL® 100 “Eurycoma longifolia”, also known as Tongkat ali and Malaysian ginseng, is known to increase energy levels and enhance libido. Eurycomanone the main active component of properly-extracted eurycoma longifolia roots, enhance weight loss and maintain high energy levels by maintaining normal levels of cortisol and testosterone during weight loss. More particularly, Eurycoma is used to help maintain normal (low) cortisol and normal (high) testosterone levels during the stress of weight loss.
Metabolically, the primary effect underlying the weight loss and mood/energy-boosting effects of AlivEL® in combination with patented PMF-Source® and eriocitrin are due to a significant maintenance of cortisol/testosterone ratio during “dieting stress” (compared to the elevation in cortisol and fall in testosterone that is anticipated during dieting for weight loss). In studies among endurance athletes, cortisol levels were 32.3% lower and testosterone levels were 16.4% higher compared to non-supplemented athletes. These results, presented at scientific conferences including the International Society for Sports Nutrition (ISSN), suggest that Eurycoma extract (alone or combined with PMF-Source® and eriocitrin) may help to maintain normal levels of cortisol (low) and testosterone (high) and thus promote an overall “anabolic” hormonal state (versus a “catabolic” state characterized by elevated cortisol and suppressed testosterone) during intense endurance exercise or dieting for weight loss.
In the graph below the benefits are clearly illustrated.
This metabolic hormone control provides energy to a person in a weight loss phase while simultaneously helping them lose weight. As a result, effective doses of AlivEL® 100 with Citrus PMF-Source® and eriocitrin help prevent the body from seeking to gain weight by storing fat and increasing appetite, thereby help stop the “yo-yo” effect where a dieter’s initial weight loss of a few pounds sends the body into a catabolic state, leading to increased appetite, binge eating, and fat storage. Similarly, it is believed that controlling the cortisol and testosterone levels helps prevent the body from increasing fat storage and increases a person’s baseline energy.
“These results hold significant potential for the sports nutrition, metabolic syndrome, and weight loss markets,” asserted Dr. Andreas Supersaxo, Director of Research and Development for Vesifact of Baar, Switzerland, and member of SourceOne’s Medical and Scientific Advisory Board.
“This placebo-controlled study has delivered strong evidence of the many benefits this ingredient delivers alone and potentially in combination with other SourceOne proprietary ingredients. This bodes well for athletes and dieters alike because the incidence of visceral obesity is directly associated with high cortisol output that contributes to the deposition of fat in adipose tissue that surrounds the stomach — also a primary indication of increased risk for heart disease. Obesity in America is a huge issue and we now have more natural products we can offer to help support healthy triglycerides, cholesterol, weight management, visceral fat, and all the key components of metabolic syndrome.”
Obesity and metabolic syndrome (Syndrome X) is reaching epidemic proportions in the United States and around the world. Abdominal fat accumulation has been suspected to be caused by elevated levels of glucocorticoids, mainly being cortisol. Scientific studies have shown directly proportional results between metabolic syndrome and adipose tissue. In many adults undesired formation of adipose tissue occurs due to changes in hormone balance. Specifically, there is an increase in sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) and a decrease in anabolic hormones (DHEA , Testosterone, etc.). Majorly these hormones are associated with sexuality but they also act in association with other endocrine hormones to control a wide array of metabolic functions especially those linked to perceived feelings of energy/fatigue, mood/anxiety/depression and weight gain/loss/maintenance.
