MAGNESIUM EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Magnesium supplementation in obese patients promotes weight loss and prevents complications of weight-loss regimens. 
Magnesium supplementation reduces cravings as a result of improved glucose control and increased synthesis and sensitivity of serotonin. 
Decreased magnesium levels increase the risk of diabetes. In contrast, magnesium supplementation in diabetic patients decreases fasting plasma glucose, HbA1c, and weight and therefore helps to control diabetes.

GREEN CAMELLIA SINENSIS EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Green Camellia Sinensis decreases body weight (by 4.6%), abdominal fat (by 7.7%), and waist circumference (by 4.5%) as a result of increased thermogenesis and fat oxidation.
Green Camellia Sinensis decreases cravings by improving insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism, protecting brain centers sensitive to dopamine and serotonin from oxidative stress and stabilizing mood. 
Green Camellia Sinensis decreases the risk of diabetes (by 33%) by reducing HbA1C levels, improving glucose metabolism, and increasing insulin sensitivity by 13%.

COFFEA ARABICA EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Coffea Arabica reduces body weight (by 2.5 kg to 8 kg (5.5 lbs to 17.6 lbs)), BMI (by 2.9), and body fat (by 4.5%) through inhibiting fat absorption and activating fat metabolism.
Coffea Arabica reduces insulin resistance and glucose absorption, lowering blood glucose levels and controlling insulin spikes in diabetics.

L-TYROSINE EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

L-Tyrosine is a precursor for dopamine and norepinephrine, which may help to promote weight loss through increased body activity and thermogenesis and decreased appetite.
Tyrosine (aka 4-hydroxyphenylalanine) is a non-essential amino acid used in the synthesis of certain neurotransmitters including dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine, as well as thyroid hormones thyroxine and triiodothyronine (Rosebrough 1994).

FRUCTUS RUBI EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Fructus Rubi decreases body weight (by 2%) and fat mass (by ~8%) due to increased norepinephrine-induced lipolysis and suppresses lipid accumulation. For an average overweight individual of 118 kg (260 lbs), this is a decrease in 2.4 kg (5.3 lbs) weight and 9.44 kg (21 lbs) fat mass.
Fructus Rubi increases insulin sensitivity promoting better blood glucose control.

HIGENAMINE EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Higenamine stimulates fat burning and energy expenditure and reduces energy absorption by slowing gastric motility, resulting in weight loss and a healthier body fat ratio.
Higenamine decreases hormones involved with hunger and cravings such as dopamine, ghrelin, and neuropeptide.
Higenamine improves insulin secretion and sensitivity and blood glucose levels and benefits diabetics by increasing the glucose uptake into cells by up to 200%.

NARINGIN EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Naringin decreases weight by increasing fat metabolism, decreasing inflammation of adipocytes, reducing hunger, and protecting the liver from oxidative stress. 
Naringin decreases cravings by normalizing blood glucose levels, reducing the secretion of ghrelin, and decreasing the sensitivity of brain centers to dopamine and serotonin. 
Naringin improves glycemic control by protecting the liver from oxidative stress, improving glucose metabolism in the liver, improving glucose uptake from the blood, enhancing the secretion of insulin from the pancreas, and reducing insulin resistance.

YOHIMBINE EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Yohimbine is found naturally in the Pausinystalia Yohimbe tree and the Rauwolfia family of plants (Singh 2004). Yohimbine is best known for its fat burning and appetite suppressing properties.
Yohimbine (10mg twice daily) reduces fat percentage by 2.1% over three weeks (Ostojic 2006). In an individual with an average 45 kg (100 lb) overweight, this is 17 kg (37.5 lbs) fat reduction per year before any further dietary or exercise changes.
Yohimbine suppresses appetite and reduces food intake by 38% to 44% (Callahan 1984).

VITAMIN D EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Vitamin D supplementation causes weight loss of up to 12.3 lbs (5.6 kg) in 2 years. Vitamin D status is inversely associated with total body fat percentage, BMI, waist circumference, and skinfolds. 
Vitamin D deficiency is associated with increased cravings for fatty foods. Vitamin D decreases cravings by increasing the ratio of healthy to unhealthy gut flora and protecting brain centers sensitive to serotonin and dopamine. 
Vitamin D deficiency decreases insulin secretion by 48%, disturbs glycemic control, and increases insulin resistance. Vitamin D supplementation improves the secretion of insulin from the pancreas.

VITAMIN B6 EFFECTS ON WEIGHT REDUCTION, CRAVINGS AND DIABETES IN GLOBESITY BOOTCAMP FOR THE OBESE

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) is a water-soluble vitamin, which is best obtained from beans, poultry, fish, and dark leafy greens. Vitamin B6 is significant to protein, fat, and carbohydrate metabolism and the creation of red blood cells. It regulates mood and reduces stress by promoting neurotransmitters (serotonin, dopamine, gamma-aminobutyric acid) production, which in turn decreases cravings, preventing emotional eating, and weight gain. It is also important for thought processing and healthy brain development. Vitamin B6 enhances insulin’s effect on blood glucose and glycemic index in diabetes, which leads to higher glucose-lowering potency and better glucose control.
