Reverses Leptin Resistance :by lowering C-reactive protein in fat cells, Irvingia is able to improve leptin sensitivity in the brain. Leptin is very important in weight management as leptin signals to the brain that the body has had enough to eat. This helps prevent consuming excess calories.
Suppresses Fat Converting Enzyme Glycerol-3-Phosphate Dehydrogenase –by suppressing this enzyme, Irvingia reduces the glucose conversion to fat.
Reduces Carbohydrate Absorption –by inhibiting the action of the amylase digestive enzyme, Irvingia reduces the amount of carbohydrates that will be converted and absorbed as sugar.
Increases the Secretion of Adiponectin –increased adiponectin secretion has been linked to shrinkage in fat cells. Adiponectin is a very important hormone that also aids in insulin sensitivity.
