South American Plant Yerba Mat Could Hold The Key To Thrashing Obesity!

Author : Alexander E McLean

The study examined the effects of extracts of yerba pal, a plant indigenous to South America, on overweight mice fed on fatty diets and came to the conclusion that the yerba mat extracts had potent anti-obesity activity.
The study demonstrated that in adipose tissue in overweight mice given the extracts, the expression of one or two genes related to obesity stabilized levels. Additionally high blood cholesterol and glucose sugar levels in the extract treated mice were reduced. This suggests the compounds found in yerba mat extract may act synergistically to suppress body weight gain, visceral fat accumulation, and lessen the serum levels of cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL, cholesterol and glucose.
Professor Anthony Leeds, a leading obesity researcher of the school of Copenhagen said 'the latest research clearly shows that compounds happening in yerba mat extract ( Ilex paraguarensis ) attenuated weight gain in mice on a high-fat diet and improved unnatural blood lipid profiles. Yerba mat treatment acted on adipose tissue to down-regulate several genes ( including leptin the 'eating hormone', and cytokines ) and upregulated those for adiponectin and thermogenesis, giving clues re the mechanism for the weight reduction.
Yerba mat is taken as a hot drink, 'mat', in South America. Yerba mat extract is the main ingredient in natural weight reduction product Zotrim where it is complemented by extracts from guarana and damiana, 2 other South American plants. This synergistic blend of natural vegetable elements has already got a well-established effect on weightloss in humans. Zotrim has been through five thorough, independent investigations. On average people taking Zotrim lost 5.1kg ( 11.2lbs ) matched against just 0.3kg ( 0.7lbs ) with the worthless pill. It helps users to eat less thru inflating satiety, the sensation of fullness.
