Clinically proven Blood Orange ingredient (MOROSIL) :
“Blood oranges are rich in vitamin C and anthocyanins, which have distinct health advantages. Anthocyanins, red flavonoid pigments, give blood oranges their vibrant color and antioxidant benefits. Nutritionists think anthocyanins contain anti-inflammatory characteristics that prevent cancer, bacterial infections, diabetes, and heart disease. They also protect blood arteries and lower LDL cholesterol."
In a clinical study on MOROSIL (blood orange extract), it was found that MOROSIL reduced body weight, BMI, waist and hip circumferences as well as being safe and well-tolerated when paired with diet and exercise (1).
More specifically, blood oranges are rich in:
- Anthocyanins – aids in combating free radicals and inflammation
- Vitamin C – aids in the treatment or prevention of scurvy
- Vitamin A – maintains the health of the skin and certain bodily tissues
- Folic acid – aids in the prevention of some malignancies and heart disease
- Calcium – promotes bone and tooth health
Clinically proven Apple Cider Vinegar ingredient :
According to research Apple Cider Vinegar has numerous health benefits, including antibacterial and antioxidant properties as well as potential weigh loss benefits.
There is evidence that it may have health benefits, including:
- supporting weight loss
- minimizing cholesterol
- reducing blood glucose levels
- improving diabetic symptomatology
It Works Slimming Gummies Research
MOROSIL (blood orange extract) Research
A clinical trial on the effectiveness of MOROSIL (blood orange extract) was performed to determine the effectiveness of blood orange extract on weight reduction and all health markers.
98 study participants were administered 400 mg or MOROSIL (blood orange extract) or a placebo. All participants were overweight but otherwise healthy adults aged 20 to 65 years old.
A clinical trial on MOROSIL and blood orange extract was performed to measure the effectiveness of MOROSIL on weight loss. The study was organized as a single-site, double-blind, randomized clinical trial in Brisbane, Australia, over a six-month period (1).
MOROSIL was provided to participants in a 400 mg capsule, to be taken with water after breakfast.
The placebo capsule contained maltodextrin which was stored within a matching capsule and administered in the same way as the MOROSIL capsule (1).
Subjects were randomly assigned to either the placebo control group or the MOROSIL test group. During registration, participants were measured for nutritional consumption, physical measurements, blood parameters, and body composition. Participants were also required to walk for 30 minutes three times a week and adhere to a calorie-controlled diet.
The MOROSIL group experienced significant changes in body weight, BMI, and waist and hip circumferences after six months of supplementation and lost more weight than the placebo group.
Also the MOROSIL group, when compared to the placebo group, exhibited a substantial decrease in BMI, fat mass, visceral fat, abdominal fat, and waist and hip circumference after 6-months.
Overall, the MOROSIL (blood orange extract) was found to reduce body weight, BMI, waist and hip circumferences as well as being safe and well-tolerated when paired with diet and exercise.
“Supplementation with the standardized extract may considerably help as a supplemental method in weight management regimens," the researchers conclude.
Apple Cider Vinegar Research
Numerous human studies indicate that apple cider vinegar can reduce hunger and improve feeling of satiety. This can result in consuming less calories resulting in improved weight loss. According to one study, consuming apple cider vinegar with a high-carb meal boosted participants’ feelings of fullness, causing them to consume 200–275 less calories than usual (13, 14).
Furthermore, a research of 175 overweight individuals revealed that daily ingestion of apple cider vinegar was linked to lower abdominal fat and weight loss (15):
The study concluded that :
- consuming 1 spoonful (15 mL) resulted in a 2.6-pound weight loss (1.2 kg)
- consuming 2 tablespoons (30 mL) resulted in a 3.7-pound weight decrease (1.7 kg)
Apple cider vinegar may improve satiety, resulting in reduced caloric consumption (3). In addition to decreasing appetite, apple cider vinegar has been demonstrated to reduce the pace at which food is expelled from the body(4).
A 2009 study found that apple cider vinegar had substantial effects on weight loss and body fat reduction (5). In this 12-week trial, 144 Japanese people who were overweight, were given either 1 tbsp (15 mL) of vinegar, 2 tbsp (30 mL) of vinegar, or a placebo drink every day.
Individuals who ingested 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar every day saw the following benefits:
The study concluded that :
Weight loss: 2.6 pounds (lb) or 1.2 kilograms (kg)
18% reduction in body fat percentage
Waist circumference is reduced by 0.5 inch (in) or 1.4 centimeters (cm)
Triglyceride levels had dropped by 26%.
This is what happened in individuals who ingested 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar every day:
Weight loss: 4.2 lb (1.7 kg).
0.9% decrease in body fat percentage
Waist circumference decreased by 0.75 in (1.9 cm).
Triglyceride levels had dropped by 26%.
The placebo group gained 0.9 lb (0.4 kg), and their waist circumference rose marginally.
According to this study, adding 1 or 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to your diet may help to lose weight. It may also help you shed abdominal fat and lower your blood triglycerides.
