THE EPITOME OF FAT LOSS
Epitome is a clinically studied, cutting-edge development in fat loss. Epitome helps control appetite and accelerates fat burning by manipulation of the leptin pathway. By increasing leptin sensitivity and keeping leptin levels within normal range, the brain and body self-adjust to drive your physique where it should be: Lean. Leptin signals will tell your body that it's not hungry while at the same time telling your brain to burn that fat!
With the addition of Gypenosides we boost AMPk signals, literally causing the body to react as if you are smack dab in the middle of a demanding workout, causing additional acceleration of fat loss. Epitome is exactly what it promises — the epitome of fat loss.
Betulinic Acid - The herbal extract will be blended with a Betulinic Acid / Ascorbic Acid cocrystal, which increases solubility and absorption over 20 fold.
Chitosan forms a mucoadhesive which will increase time in contact with the intestinal wall, also increasing absorption.
Stem Bromelain inhibits an enzyme called PDE3B. PDE3B is activated by insulin, and contributes to the blunting of lipolysis through elevated insulin levels. This means Epitome, in addition to all of the potent effects, will also not be affected as bad by food intake/elevated insulin.

Magnolol - potent Magnolia compound which suppresses Cortisol induced visceral fat accumulation (belly fat), inhibits aromatase, as well as inhibiting PTP-1b (same as BA)
Semen Cassiae - is an ingredient that boosts lipolytic function. Working with the rest of the formula, SC acclerates release of fatty acids from fat cells to be burned, as well as boosting fat burning pathways.
What is AMPK? Adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase, or AMPK, is basically the cellular signaling equivalent of exercise. Once activated, it triggers fatty acid oxidation and the generation of ketone bodies, inhibits cholesterol synthesis and lipogenesis, stimulates skeletal muscle glucose uptake, and favorably modulates insulin secretion. Increasing AMPK activation can actually repair damaged insulin signaling. Fat loss and fat gain are moderated by numerous complex mechanisms, and AMPk is a key player in this flux. Appropriate levels of AMPk activation are great for fat loss. AMPK phosphorylates, and inhibits the aforementioned SREBP-1c (1). Without adequate AMPK activation, SREBP-1c reacts to glucose elevations causing lipogenesis and lipid accumulation. When looking at fat loss research, data on Type II Diabetes is an interesting and highly relevant place to look, even for those lacking the clinical symptoms. One of the ways the drug Metformin works (most people with T2DM are prescribed this right off the bat), is through AMPK activation. To reiterate, activation basically has the same effect as exercise, from a fat loss/metabolic perspective.
