More Information: Anti-aging & Energy

Fiit-ns® is a proprietary combination of extracts from grapefruit, grape, guarana, green tea, and black carrot, selected for their powerful antioxidant properties and for their ability to equilibrate various metabolic functions.Fiit-ns® Contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and Contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism.

Thanks to its content of polyphenols, Fiit-ns® delivers benefits from a synergistic formulation to improve quality of life (QOL) by rejuvenating metabolic functions* and thereby limiting metabolic aging processes. Fiit-ns® is also enhanced with vitamin B3, which works synergistically to balance the energetic metabolism.

Niacin is water-soluble so it can not be stored in the body and it is needed in our diet everyday; Fiit-NS® is an all natural option to fill that requirement.  Two forms of Niacin, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP), are essential coenzymes in the process of cellular respiration where nutrients (carbs, fats, proteins) are converted to ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the body’s energy “currency”.(1)  There are also low levels of caffeine in Fiit-NS®, a well known stimulant that initiates the release of adrenaline, a hormone that causes you to feel awake and alert.  The effects of caffeine are typically short lived, however, Fiit-NS® also contains Naringin, a polyphenol found in grapefruit which has been found to extend the activity of caffeine (3).  A long lasting low dose of caffeine can help you to feel invigorated throughout your day.

Dallas et.al., conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled clinical study was performed to confirm the action of Fiit-ns® on metabolic anti-aging and improvement in QOL;17 obese subjects (BMI=30.1-33.3) with moderate metabolic disturbances took a 12-week supplementation of Fiit-ns® (0.450g twice daily at breakfast and lunch) or a placebo and maintained a normal diet and 30min/week of physical activity (3).

The results found (3):

  • On a Visual Analog Scale, the subjects taking Fiit-ns® reported a 52% higher level of “vitality” and a 53% higher level of “well-being” compared to subjects who took a placebo

 

  • After 12 weeks, metabolic markers improved, leading to a significant improvement in QOL*.
  • Fiit-ns® enhanced vitality and well-being, as shown by a significantly higher rating in the Fiit-ns® group versus the placebo group (p<0.0001).
  • Metabolic functions significantly improved in the Fiit-ns® group with significant impact on TG, MDA, HbA1c and hs-CRP.

Among bioactive compounds in Fiit-ns®, four complementary subclasses of polyphenols within the flavonoids family constitute the main biological activity of the product: flavanols, flavanones, procyanidins and anthocyanins. Procyanidins from grape have been widely described to lower various blood lipid parameters including triglycerides and LDL-cholesterol [13-16]. In the study by Dallas et al.,results demonstrated that both LDL-cholesterol and triglycerides respectively decreased by 10.1% (p<0.01) and 14.0% (p<0.05) while the healthy form of cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, significantly increased by 8.8±% (p<0.001) (3).

Flavanols such as EGCG from green tea have been widely described to inhibit  digestive enzymes such as lipases and amylases (5 6,7), therefore restricting calorie intakes from the two main exogenous energetic sources in the diet, fats and carbohydrates. Flavanones from grapefruit have been demonstrated to inhibit adipogenesis and, when associated to caffeine from guarana, to enhance endogenous lipolysis which consequently increases calorie expenditure from abdominal area and provide the metabolism with more available energy as fat (3; 4, 5). Those two complementary mechanisms of action of polyphenols from both green tea and grapefruit may contribute to the weight loss and abdominal fat decrease effects of Fiit-ns® thanks to a synergistic action that limits calorie absorption and enhances calorie release.

The Dallas, et al., study also showed that Fiit-ns® may support weight loss and reduction of hip and waist circumference;body weight was significantly decreased in the Fiit-ns® treated group* (-6.1kg – p<0.005), and it appeared that this was associated with a significant abdominal fat decrease (-7.1% – p<0.005). Among the Fiit-ns® there was a more significant reduction in waist size (2cm) and hip size (3cm) compared to placebo (p<0.05) (3).
