Phyto-LEAN is an advanced nutritional weight loss formula which utilizes the latest clinical research on hormones, metabolism and weight loss. Phyto-LEAN provides powerful ingredients which cause your body to break down and burn fat and even prevent its creation while protecting lean tissue. Phyto-LEAN does this without engaging the central nervous system like stimulant products do. Yet, Phyto-LEAN goes a step further. It gives your body the nutritional factors it needs to operate and utilize energy properly. These super nutrients break the problem of the "eat" cycle, where your body goes on an endless search for the nutrition it needs to operate. These super nutrients work synergistically with the formula's adaptogens, antioxidants, co-factors, and precursors required for your body to manufacture and utilize metabolic hormones. Note: This is a full Complement Formula, see the ingredient list below.

Phyto-LEAN supplies special nutrition for your thyroid gland plus the precursors for it to build the T4 and T3 thyroid hormones. These hormones are a signal to virtually cell in your body to "get going". Especially if you are trying to loose weight or are athletic, or both, the nutritional strain on your body can become severe. Without the correct nutrients, your body’s ability to synthesize metabolic hormones can be limited. Without these metabolic nutrients, your body cannot burn the fat you are trying to loose in the first place. Phyto-LEAN is packed with the necessary nutrition you need to switch your metabolism into high gear.

Ingredient Synopsis:

Alpha Lipoic Acid: is an antioxidant which boosts the levels of glutathione. It is an essential factor taking part in reactions involving the production of energy in the cell. It is used to generate energy in the mitochondria. It helps in eliminating toxic metals and protects against the process of glycosylation. 

Ascorbate (Vitamin C in the form of Niacinamide Ascorbate), is reversibly oxidized to dehydroascorbic acid, thus forming full biologic activity. Ascorbic acid is a reducing agent involved in numerous oxidation-reduction reactions and transfer of protons (as in the production of energy). It is essential in the synthesis of collagen, catecholamines, corticosterone, the metabolism of tyrosine, improves nonheme iron absorption, stabilizes cell membranes, helps to maintain the integrity of connective tissue, osteoid tissue of bone, and dentin of teeth. It is an aldose reductase inhibitor, antihistamine effect, delays the insulin response to glucose challenge, exerts vasodilatory, and anti clotting affects by altering the production of prostaglandin's.

Biotin: is a coenzyme vitamin that is essential in carbohydrate and fatty acid metabolism by increasing levels of carboxylase enzymes which catalyze essential metabolic reactions. Specifically, biotin is involved in the utilization of glucose, the breakdown and utilization of fatty acids in energy metabolism. It is also a component of cell growth and replication. It enhances sensitivity to insulin, and therefore, reduces lipogenesis (fat creation). It is also involved in the transformation of amino acids into protein. Biotin aids in digestion and the breakdown of fats. Biotin is a cofactor in the utilization of protein, folic acid, pantothenic acid, and vitamin B-12

Carnitine fumarate: L- Carnitine is a trimethylated amino acid which is absolutely essential for the transformation of fatty acids into energy for muscular activity. Supplementation can improve fat metabolism aiding in weight loss.  In addition, studies suggest supplementation can improve exercise capacities and endurance, possibly through its vasodilatation property, which both improves energetic metabolism of the muscle and enhances wash-out of algogenic metabolites. L-carnitine supplementation has also shown evidence in preventing cardiovascular disease, reducing serum cholesterol and triglycerides, and improving heart function.

Choline Bitartrate: Choline is a lipotropic substance, which functions in the body's metabolism as an agent that aids in the digestion and emulsification of fats.  It is believed that choline helps the body to burn fat, and thereby acts as an agent supporting weight loss.  As choline increases fat metabolism it has shown that it lowers blood cholesterol. Fats and oils are an essential part of the diet, yet they must function within the watery environment of the body. When choline is converted to phosphatidylcholine it helps to dissolve fats and cholesterol, and therefore functions as the body's emulsifier.

Chromium Nutritional Yeast, a single cell fungi that is fed nutrients including chromium. The yeast then assimilates the nutrients into highly bio-available forms including Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF), a compound of chromium, nicotinic acid, and amino acids. GTF potentiates insulin's action and therefore influences carbohydrate, lipid and protein metabolism, reducing body fat and increasing lean muscle mass, plus decreases serum cholesterol and triglycerides.  Chromium is highest in infancy and decreases steadily with age.  Unless it is in a biological form, it cannot be used in the body.  It is estimated that as many as 90% of American diets are low in chromium. Chromium can be difficult for the body to absorb, however, this form (GTF) is already biologically assimilated and ready for direct absorption into your cells.  Our nutritional yeast also contains high levels of other important nutrients, including all the B vitamins (except for B-12 which we have added separately), 16 amino acids and 14 minerals.  The B-complex vitamins support and optimize carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism.  They also reduce stress, depression, irritability and fatigue and also help protect against aging.  The body does not store B vitamins, so they continually need to be replenished.  Biotin, one of these B vitamins, enhances insulin sensitivity, and therefore helps with fat metabolism as well.

Citrus aurantium: herbal extract; directly stimulates beta-3 receptors on the surface of fat and muscle cells, which cause an increase in the rate of lipolysis or breakdown of fat which then causes an increase in thermogenesis or metabolic rate, which burns calories. This increase in fat metabolism increases the body's available energy. This is important in exercise to minimize loss of lean muscle tissue and enhance physical performance.

Coleus forskolii:  Herbal Extract, has demonstrated the ability to promote lean body mass while reducing body fat and reducing weight Directly activates adenylate cyclase, which leads to the activation of lipase enzyme, which breaks down the triglyceride foundation of fat.  Additionally, it has been shown to stimulate the thyroid whose hormonal signals are central to metabolism. The biochemical mechanism of maintaining or increasing lean body mass is related to the availability of cyclic AMP. By facilitating hormonal action, cyclic AMP may regulate the body's thermogenic response to food, increase the body's basil metabolic rate (BMR), and increase utilization of body fat (since thermogenesis is preferentially fueled by fatty acids derived from body fat and/or food).  These events also correspond to the buildup of lean body mass.

Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA): is a form of linoleic acid in which the double-bonds are closer together. CLA works to normalize glucose tolerance and reduce the production of insulin (insulin inhibits lipolysis). CLA has been shown to reduce body fat, improve muscle tone, improve nutrient usage, and reduce the appetite by improving the way the body extracts energy from less food. CLA is able to block the converstion of Dihomogamma Linolenic Acid (DGLA) into arachidonic acid (AA). DGLA which is not converted, can instead be used to make the "good" prostaglandin PGE1 (as opposed to "bad" prostaglandin PGE2 which is made from AA).  PGE1 stimulates the production of cAMP which leads to accelerated lipolysis (fat breakdown). By maintaining adequate cellular levels of PGE1 you are guaranteed that a certain baseline level of cyclic AMP is always present in a cell. When an additional burst of cyclic AMP is generated by an endocrine hormone (such as glucagon), the overall cyclic AMP levels in the cell will be high enough to ensure that the appropriate biological response (i.e. lipolysis, thermogenesis, release of growth hormone, etc.) is produced.

Cyanocobalamin: ( B-12) is required by the enzyme that facilitates the conversion of L-methylmalonyl-CoA to succinyl-CoA.  This biochemical reaction plays an important role in the production of energy from fats and proteins.  B-12 is essential for the formation of choline-containing phospholipids that emulsify fats in the body's water environment. B-12 is also required for the function of the enzyme, methionine synthase. Inadequate function of methionine synthase can lead to an accumulation of homocysteine, which is a primary indicator of the cardiovascular disease process. B-12 is also important in red blood cell production and preventing erythropoiesis (low red blood cell anemia) which is common with hypothyroidism (as many as 30-40% of patients).

Fennel Essential Oil: stimulates the thyroid to burn fats. This effect, coupled with its diuretic and expectorant properties, explain fennel's reputation for cleansing the body, including the liver and spleen, of toxins and poisons, and its use for weight loss and reduction of cellulite.

Folic Acid: is converted to methyl tetrahydrofolate (Me-THF), and as such, provides labile methyl groups used to recycle homocysteine to methionine. With an insufficiency of Me-THF, more homocysteine is converted to cystathionine instead of being recycled into methionine. This undercuts methylation metabolism and the reproduction of methionine. Methionine is required for the production of S-adenosylmethionine (SAM), the "active methyl donor" that is a vital part of countless metabolic reactions throughout the body. An under-activity of the folate cycle coupled with overproduction and diversion to the cystathionine pathway diverts the homocysteine from the SAM cycle. Also homocysteine in all but low quantities can damage the endothelial cells of arteries. Folic acid supplementation improves arterial endothelial function and has potential implications for prevention of atherosclerosis in people with hyperhomocysteinemia. Folic acid is also important in red blood cell production and preventing erythropoiesis (low red blood cell anemia) which is common with hypothyroidism (as many as 30-40% of patients).

Garcinia Cambogia: herbal extract; contains HCA (hydroxycitric acid), which inhibits the conversion of glucose into fat by the enzyme citrate lyase, thereby effectively preventing the creation of fat (lipogenesis). HCA also boosts basal metabolic rate, which is usually suppressed during a reduced calorie diet. This keeps weight-loss from slowing down when you restrict carbohydrates.  

Gugulipid (Guggulsterones): an extract of the exudate (gum guggul) of Mukul myrrh tree (Commiphora mukul), contains phytosterols named guggulsterones, organic acids, aromatic acids, diterpenes,  lignans, and fatty acid alcohols. Its effect is to lower lipid levels in the bloodstream and stimulate the thyroid gland. Specifically, gugulipid lowers VLDL and LDL cholesterol and triglycerides while simultaneously raising HDL cholesterol. This indicates Gugulipid's primary use for providing a protective effective against atherosclerosis. These effects are due to gugulipid's action on the liver and thyroid. The thyroid is stimulated to increase the body's metabolic rate,  and the liver is stimulated to metabolize LDL cholesterol, effectively lowering the amount in the bloodstream.

Gugulippid's effect on serum cholesterol  and triglycerides, is comparable to that of other lipid-lowering drugs, but without significant side effects or toxicity.

In addition to protecting against the formation of atherosclerotic plaques, gugulipid provides regression of preexisting plaques, plus mildly inhibits platelet aggregation and promotes fibrinolysis, which are  factors involved in stroke and embolic events.

Iodine: Iodine is needed to make thyroid hormones, which are necessary for maintaining normal metabolism in all cells of the body.

Thyroid hormone synthesis is: dependent on Iodine and L-tyrosin (see below).  

Iodine is an essential component of the thyroid (metabolic) hormones T3 and T4.  Most of ingested iodine is absorbed by active transport into the blood from the gastrointestinal tract and converted to iodide (ionized form) in the process. Iodide is then actively transported into the thyroid cells and incorporated into thyroglobulin (~1% metabolized per day).  Iodide is converted back to iodine and used with tyrosine for hormone synthesis.

Thyroid Hormone's Effects

  • METABOLIC RATE: Increased BMR (Basil Metabolic Rate)
  • CALOROGENIC: Increased heat production (oxidative metabolism)
  • SYMPATHOMIMETIC: Flight or Fight response
  • CARDIOVASCULAR: Increases responsiveness of heart.
  • GROWTH: Essential for normal growth 
  • (PERMISSIVE OR SYNERGYSTIC WITH Growth Hormone, Insulin-Like Growth Factor, CNS, ANS
  • NERVOUS SYSTEM: Development and adult activity.

Laminaria digitata (kelp): Kelp is an excellent source of B vitamins, calcium, magnesium and iodine. Iodine is essential for the formation of the thyroid hormones. One of the key symptoms of Iodine Deficiency is fatigue. It's certainly not the only one, but it may be a key indicator that your thyroid gland is not functioning properly. And that can have very significant impacts on your health. Some of the other symptoms of under active thyroid is weakness, lethargy, weight problem, edema, and shortness of breath. The thyroid gland is considered to be the 'thermostat' of the body, controlling the metabolism (rate at which food or nutrients are utilized) of the entire system. If it is not working properly the entire system is affected. About 1 out of 6 people in the world are at risk of iodine deficiency. 

Niacinamide Ascorbate: Niacin (vitamin B-3) has been used for many years to treat hyperlipidemia. It has been shown to reduce coronary death and non-fatal myocardial infarction. It reduces total cholesterol, low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and triglycerides and increases high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C). Niacin also favorably influences other lipid parameters. The active form of this coenzyme, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), is essential for glycolysis (the enzymatic breakdown of carbohydrates.)

Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) is a water-soluble vitamin, that consists of a heterocyclic isoalloxazine ring attached to a sugar alcohol side chain, ribitol. Riboflavin is phosphorylated into the coenzyme flavin mononucleotide (FMN) and ultimately converted to flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD). FMN and FAD participate in oxidation-reduction reactions and in energy production via the respiratory chain through electron transfer. Riboflavin is crucial for the metabolism of carbohydrates, amino acids, and lipids.

Selenomethonine: ( Selenium) In animal studies, selenium deficiency causes a markedly reduced serum level of glutathione peroxidase (Glutathione is a tripeptide and when combined with vitamin E and selenium, forms glutathione peroxidase which is one of the key antioxidants that protects the body and is critical for protection of the thyroid gland from oxidation damage. Low levels of glutathione (along with low levels of vitamin E and selenium) may be a factor in the genesis of thyroid disease. Excessive intake of sugars and starches may reduce glutathione and thereby damage the thyroid gland.) Selenium-deficient animals had lower concentrations of the thyroid hormones T3 and T4 than selenium-adequate animals. In the elderly, reduced peripheral conversion of T4 to T3 with a lower T3/T4 ratio and overt hypothyroidism are frequently observed. Iodothyronine 5' deiodinase, which is mainly responsible for peripheral T3 production (the more active form), has recently been demonstrated to be a selenium containing enzyme. The activity of hepatic type I 5'deiodinase was decreased by 47% by selenium deficiency compared to controls, demonstrating that selenium also plays an important role in thyroid hormone metabolism.

Tyrosine: (L-Tyrosine) is an amino acid precursor for synthesis of the bodies neurotransmitters and thyroid hormones. Tyrosine acts in the thyroid gland to support metabolic function, reduce body fat and suppress ones appetite. Low levels can lead to depression, low blood pressure and temperature, and hypothyroidism.

Zinc acetate: Zinc helps normalize blood sugar. This is important, because high blood sugar stimulates over production of insulin, which besides inhibiting lipolysis (fat breakdown), also reduces a hormone called leptin, which regulates appetite and causes satiety (turns off hunger). Zinc supplementation tends to keep leptin from being suppressed even when sugar is consumed. Zinc is stored primarily in muscle but high concentrations are also found in red and white blood cells and the retina. In men, the prostate gland contains more zinc than any other organ. Dietary zinc restriction in normal young men has demonstrated a significant decrease in serum testosterone concentrations, therefore zinc may play an important role in modulating serum testosterone levels. Zinc is a part of some important antioxidant compounds, including superoxide dismutase (SOD) and zinc monomethionine. It protects the liver from chemical damage, helping with detoxification of the body. It is required for a healthy immune system and is essential for proper growth and development including muscle growth. In animal studies, Zinc deficiency decreased concentrations of the thyroid hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and free thyroxine (fT4) in serum by approximately 30% and the activity of hepatic type I 5'deiodinase was decreased by 67%, demonstrating that zinc plays an important role in thyroid hormone metabolism. The structure of nuclear thyroid hormone receptors contains Zinc ions which are crucial for the functional properties of the protein.
