Meratrim® was shown in two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies to be safe and effective for weight management. Meratrim is a combination of Sphaeranthus indicus and Garcinia mangostana. Research data shows that Meratrim may help people reach their weight-management goals in as little as two weeks. The studies also showed that participants receiving Meratrim instead of the placebo steadily experienced better weight loss over an eight-week period.
Judith Stern, Sc.D, Distinguished Professor in the Departments of Nutrition and Internal Medicine/Division of Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism at the University of California, Davis, oversaw the final analysis and communication of these clinical results. Dr.Stern credited the patent-pending mixture of Sphaeranthus indicus and Garcinia mangostana for the weight loss benefits.
MeraTrim Is Comprised of Two Main Plant Extracts, Sphaeranthus indicus extract (East Globe Indian Thistle) has properties which help control lipids (possibly lowering them or preventing formation) and blood sugar/glucose levels. Each part-the leaf, stem, and root-have different properties and effects. Using a non-branded version of the ingredients within MeraTrim may not actually get the extract that helps with weight control. Garcinia mangostana (mangosteen) fruit extract-despite the name, this ingredient has no connection to either mango or Garcinia cambogia. It has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-oxidant effects which may play a role on overall weight management. Additionally, it may reduce C-Reactive Protein (CRP) levels, a key component of adipose cell formation, which can reduce the ability to control body weight. There is a high correlation between obesity and increased CRP levels. Reducing CRP may help with weight management.
The powerful combination of ingredients found in Meratrim cover every angle of fat utilization, helping to increase overall calorie expenditure, reduce the appearance of fat, and preserve lean muscle mass. The specific extract levels of each ingredient along with a patented combination of super ingredients in MeraTrim itself ensure that with a proper diet and exercise, fat will be begin to disappear.?? Additionally, all of the ingredients used in MeraTrim have no stimulant or stimulant-type effects
While it's not the first time Oz talks about health hacks for rapid weight loss, it is one of the few times he has publicly approved a weight loss supplement, like Meratrim. According to Oz, the pill contains fat-fighting properties of the herb sphaeranthus indicus and the flower Garcinia mangostana, and is the first to combine these ingredients together to enhance their well-known benefits. Supplementation of the herbal blend claims to significantly reduce body weight, body mass index (BMI), and waist and hip circumference, exceeding those achieved through diet and exercise alone.
