"Effect of Litramine (IQP-G-002AS) on Weight Loss in Overweight and Obese US Population: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study"
SALT LAKE CITY, UT (March 15, 2016) A randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study (published in Enliven: Journal of Dietetics and Nutrition) reports that Litramine™, the patented ingredient in bmiSMART I-REMOVE™, has been demonstrated to produce "significantly more" weight loss than a placebo group.
Not only did the placebo group not lose weight, they actually gained weight.
I-REMOVE has been scientifically developed to removefat from the digestive process. The Litramine in I-REMOVE binds fat into molecules too large to be absorbed, thus optimizing the Weight Wellness benefits of a reduced fat diet.
The introduction to the study of Litramine published by Enliven states:
Since 1980, worldwide obesity has more than doubled with an estimated 10% of world population classified as obese . It is projected that by 2048, all American adults will become overweight or obese based on 2012 trends . In 2010, overweight and obesity were estimated to cause 3.4 million deaths worldwide . This epidemic has also placed higher burdens on healthcare systems, as those who are obese are at higher risk for many serious health conditions…. .
While the study evidenced that Litramine produced weight-loss benefits without behavioral modification, the researchers counseled:
…we recommend the intake of the product in combination with a slightly hypocaloric dietary regimen, similar to the conditions applied in the previous clinical trial to achieve a better weight loss effect.
Which is precisely the bmiSMART approach to Mindful Weight Wellness: Eat healthy meals, exercise, be mindful of calories, and make I-REMOVE the last course of any meal high in dietary fat.
The additionalproducts of the bmiSMART Weight Wellness Group—I-BLOCK™ (for reduced carb and sugar calorie absorption) and I-CONTROL™ (for reduced appetite and between-meal cravings) — also have been scientifically tested for effectiveness in double-blind placebo-controlled trials.
In fact, the bmiSMART ingredients are so effective that they have been the number one weight loss solution in Europe for the past four years. And now they are available for the first time in the US from bmiSMART.
All three products are available for purchase at www.bmiSMART.com.
