TropiSlim is a natural slimming supplement made from the tropical cactus ‘pitaya’, also known as ‘dragon fruit’. This fast-emerging exotic ‘superfruit’ promotes weight loss via several unique mechanisms of action: it modulates appetite, increases satiety, inhibits the body’s production of fats (lipogenesis), has a thermogenic ‘fat-burning’ effect, and reduces water retention.
It also contains raspberry ketones to reduce the body’s general resistance to losing weight and bromelain to make the active principles more bioavailable.
What unique weight loss effects are offered by TropiSlim?
There are a number of mechanisms behind TropiSlim’s weight loss effects:
- modulation of appetite and increased feelings of satiety as a result of its high content in tyramine and N-methyl-tyramine, two enzymes involved in the secretion of glucagon (a satiety hormone).
- an increase in general metabolism ( thermogenic effect) and lipolysis (breakdown of fats) from its raspberry ketones and extract of dragon fruit.
- a reduction in production of fats from sugar due to the anthocyanins in dragon fruit (1-2).
- the natural diuretic effect of dragon fruit which minimises water retention.
- decreased absorption of carbohydrates as a result of exposing the gastrointestinal tract to high levels of anthocyanins (3-4).
Together, these mechanisms contribute to a rapid reduction in weight and abdominal circumference. Their range and diversity maximises the chances of successfully achieving weight loss.
What is in TropiSlim?
TropiSlim combines two natural compounds that are widely scientifically-documented, as well as bromelain to increase their absorption.
An extract of dragon fruit standardised in anthocyanins for satiety and purging of fat cells
Like acai or goji berries, ‘dragon fruit’ (or pitaya) is considered a ‘superfruit’. It is a little like kiwi fruit, but brighter in colour and with more flavor. The natural dragon fruit extract in TropiSlim is rich in antioxidants (polyphenols and flavonoids), vitamin C, fibre, polyunsaturated fatty acids (particularly omega-3) and B vitamins (5-6), essential for normal carbohydrate metabolism. But its real advantage is its high anthocyanin content.
Anthocyanins are antioxidants scientifically recognized for their benefits in supporting weight loss (7) and in particular for their ability to reduce carbohydrate absorption (they inhibit sugar-specific digestive enzymes) (8). They also increase cells’ sensitivity to insulin, which improves the cells’ use of sugars circulating in the blood and reduces the conversion of these sugars into fats. Lastly, they inhibit factors that contribute to lipogenesis, the process whereby the body produces fat reserves (9-10).
TropiSlim also contains two enzymes involved in the secretion of glucagon (a satiety hormone): tyramine and N-methyl-tyramine. By increasing glucagon levels, they quickly help reduce appetite and promote a sensation of satiety.
Dragon fruit is also an excellent diuretic which encourages the elimination of fluid and toxins. Clinical trials (11) have also demonstrated its ability to reduce levels of triglycerides and LDL-cholesterol in the blood.
These multiple mechanisms of action make dragon fruit a natural, powerful and original slimming aid.
Raspberry ketones to make the body less resistant to losing weight
Raspberry ketones are natural phenolic compounds derived from red raspberries (Rubus idaeus L.). They are similar in structure to capsaicin, a natural molecule known for its lipolytic effect, which means it promotes the breakdown of fats in adipocytes (fat cells) (12)).
The ketones increase secretion by fatty tissue of a messenger called adiponectin, which promotes oxidation and breakdown of fats (13-14). It’s an important hormone which controls metabolism of fats and the body’s equilibrium.
In overweight individuals, secretion of this messenger decreases, helping to maintain excess fat (15) and making the body more resistant to weight loss. By increasing adiponectin levels, raspberry ketones help restore normal secretion of this messenger and thus promote weight loss (16). Regulating adiponectin secretion is one of the most important ways of preventing obesity (17).
Ketones activate the process of ketogenesis in the absence of sugars: they serve as an alternative source of energy and thus discourage snacking.
5 good reasons to choose TropSlim over other slimming supplements
- It’s formulated from two exceptional, natural products which encompass all the mechanisms of action involved in weight loss. Other such supplements normally offer just one or two.
- It’s 100 % natural, and rich in active compounds: anthocyanins.
- It produces rapid, progressive weight loss, with no side-effects, and also improves other factors conducive to good health: blood lipid levels, the immune system, stabilisation of blood sugar and skin renewal.
- It contains bromelain, a compound rich in proteolytic enzymes which boosts the bioavailability of the pitaya extract.
- It comes in the form of DR Caps, the very best capsules available. They protect their contents against stomach acids, remaining intact until they reach the gut.
When and how should TropiSlim be taken in order to burn fat naturally?
We recommend taking one capsule in the morning, and one in the evening, around 20 minutes before eating.
It can be combined with goBHB™, a source of ketone bodies which act synergistically with raspberry ketones, and with Green Coffee Extract 200 mg, a slimming supplement based on green coffee to reduce blood sugar levels and prevent sugars from being converted into fat reserves (a function performed here by the anthocyanins in pitaya).
Diabetics should seek advice from a therapist before taking TropiSlim because of its effects on glycaemia.
