Most of are well aware by now that probiotics can help improve digestive issues, food intolerances, immune function, and general well-being. But what's much less well known is that certain strains can help lower cholesterol and produce significant weight reductions, either in general (for that, please see the related product, HMF Metabolic), or to reduce abdominal fat in particular, especially when bolstered with certain plant extracts, in the combination featured here.

Most of are well aware by now that probiotics can help improve digestive issues, food intolerances, immune function, and general well-being. But what's much less well known is that certain strains can help lower cholesterol and produce significant weight reductions, either in general (for that, please see the related product, HMF Metabolic), or to reduce abdominal fat in particular, especially when bolstered with certain plant extracts, in the combination featured here.

Product Notes:

As we age, not only do many of us develop a "spare tire" around the middle even if we exercise and eat right, but the number of some of the more beneficial types of bacteria in our digestive system may also start to drop off, which could lead to problems like inflammatory bowel disease. Genestra HMF Fitness tackles both those issues at once with a solid combination of effective human-sourced probiotics and a special blend of food-based extracts clinically proven to be able to reduce abdominal body fat.

The other half of the HMF Fitness combination is a special blend of concentrated extracts from a several types of citrus fruits and guarana seeds (an Amazonian plant). There have been at least three published placebo-controlled trials to date (two in North America, and one in Korea) showing this specific combination decreased total body weight, abdominal body fat, and the circumference of people's waist and hips significantly more than the placebo group after 12 weeks of use, when both groups also followed a calorie-reduced diet and engaged in regular physical activity.

Part of the explanation for this supported by other research is likely that the bioflavonoids in these types of citrus fruits can help support a metabolic process called lipolysis, where the triglycerides (lipids) stored in your fat cells get broken back down into the glycerol and free fatty acids which formed them. If you are also restricting your calories and exercising, those can both be taken up to be used as energy by your body (rather than getting converted back to fat again); this is the same sort of metabolic process which goes on among those following a keto or ketogenic diet.
