Natural Fat Control 180 capsules - green tea, curcumin and grapeseed extract with OPC | Power Supplements
Power Supplements Natural Fat Control contains ingredients from the 3 well known superfoods green tea, turmeric and grapes in one single capsule.
This supplement contains high-quality cocentrated plant extracts. These extracts contain the main ingredients of the best known highly valued superfoods :
- green tea with EGCG
- turmeric with curcuminoïds
- grapeseed extract (from red wine grapes) with OPC
A superfood is a type of food which is rich in very special ingredients. A superfood is to be seen as the opposite of so-called ‘junkfood’!
More attention for superfoods
Wholesome foods are the base for a healthy lifestyle. In many parts of the world there are special foods or recipes that are famous for their exceptional nutritional value.
In the land where these superfoods originate from they have a special status. In Japan and China green tea is revered. The French swear by their daily glass of red wine, while in iIndia, curcumin is a spice that is used in many different recipes, even for religious ceremonies.
Because of the special characteristics of these three superfoods, thousands of scientific articles have been written about red wine, curcumin as well as green tea.
The well-known scientific database PubMed gives no less than 2500 hits for articles that contain 'green tea' in the title.
While curcumin is less known, there are even more articles with curcumin in the title, as many as 4000 hits!
Even in science, superfoods are HOT!
Many fat loss supplements contain unnatural substances, which haven't been tested chronically on subjects. The use of such supplements can be equated to using experimental medicin.
Natural Fat Control only contains natural plant exctracts which have been consumed for hundreds of years. The dosage of each individual ingredient in Natural Fat Control has been carefully determined so you will not ingest an overdose of these superfoods.
Of course some other fat loss supplements also contain natural ingredients, but often those are one singular ingredient in a very high dosage. Sometimes this can be too taxing on the liver. This is a well-known problem with highly dosed green tea extracts.
It may be a better idea to take a lower dosage of more different active ingredients that are known to boost the metabolism.
The concentration in a single capsule of Natural Fat Control is not a lot higher than can be obtained naturally by drinking green tea or red wine and eating curcuminrich foods, but without the calories you would otherwise ingest.
There are no risks involved with ingesting these capsules as long as you aren't sensitive to a particular ingredient.
Relation to food
Ingesting 2 capsules of Natural Fat Control can be compared to consuming the following amounts of green tea, red wine or curcumin:
- one to two large cups of green tea
- 5 grams of turmeric
- one glass of dark red wine (without the alcohol)
In theory it is possible to obtain the same amounts of superfoods from nutrition, but for those who aren't easily able to do so, we can offer Natural Fat Control.
Why are we gaining weight and losing health?
The average person is gaining weight and losing health. An unhealthy lifestyal is what contributes to the development of cardiovascular diseases. There are 3 main factors to blame.
1) Lack of exercise
The first factor is lack of exercise. People are creatures of comfort and will sooner go anywhere by car than by bicycle.
People who move more, eat more too, but they are expending that energy as well.
Moving less makes people eat less too, but when you go below a certain threshold. there's an interesting phenomenon uon which we start to eat more, not less, often out of boredom and depression. As a result, we gain weight and become obese!
Unfortunately there are a lot of people who are in that unhappy place of moving too little and having a too large appetite.
2) Lack of high quality sleep
Another main factor for the epidemics of obesity is lack of sleep. On average we slep almost an hour less than 30 years ago, and the sleep we do get is more erratic and more often disturbed with blue light from computer screens, mobilie phones and televisions.
Computer screens emit a lot of light in the blue spectrum, resulting in the idea it is still day-time.
By contract, people spend less time outside in broad daylight, which results in not feeling fully awake, resulting in feeling less energetic. Being less energetic results in less movement and overeating!
Both a lack of exercise and a distrubed day-night cycle results in a sub-optimal hormonal balance. A disturbed hormonal balance also results in a higher body fat% and a decrease in muscle strength and muscle mass.
3) Eating too much refined foods
The third factor that makes us gain weight is the type of food we eat. Most people eat 'empty' refined 'factory' foods, These foods contain a lot of calories, mostly as carbs (sugar and starches) but are lacking in essential nutrients.
Our body needs wholesome nutrition which is rich in essential nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, proteins, good fats and fiber.
Nutrient-dense wholesome foods are vegetables, whole eggs (including the yolk!), fish, full-fat dairy, whole grains such as oatmeal and organ meats such as liver.
These wholesome foods will make you feel full sooner, so it is more difficult to overeat. By contrast, overly refined foods will tend to make you overeat.
Natural Fat Control with 3 healthy and natural plant extracts fits in a diet with wholesome foods.
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

Leptin, leptin resistance and SIRT1
After demand for resveratrol and pterostilbene went up considerably, due to a remark on tv by a doctor about its' effect on leptin and cardiovascular function, we got a lot of requests to explain how leptin works.
Currently, a major topic in the field of obesity research is the link between obesity and the hormone leptin. Some evidence suggests that obese-prone individuals don’t respond to increasing leptin levels in the same way that non-obese-prone individuals do, which is the reason obesity is now being associated with possible “leptin resistance.” Scientists first discovered leptin in 1994, after years of research focused on hormones that affect body weight and calorie intake. While initially researchers believed the discovery could be used to create powerful weight loss supplements, this has never happened.
How does leptin function in the body and where does the hormone come from? Leptin interacts with areas of the brain that control hunger and eating behavior. The nickname “the starvation hormone” has been given to leptin because levels tend to plummet when someone restricts their calorie intake too much, exercises more and loses body fat. These are all factors involved in what’s called “starvation mode.”
Meanwhile, ghrelin is called a “hunger hormone” that increases your desire to eat.
At your ideal “set point weight,” fat cells produce a given amount of leptin, which maintains the internal energy balance needed for necessary cellular function and proper weight management. In most healthy adults, changes in body weight will trigger changes in leptin, causing appetite to either increase when body fat falls or decrease when body fat rises — although in some susceptible individuals this energy-balance system seems to malfunction.
There’s still a lot to learn about how leptin resistance or decreased sensitivity to leptin’s signals develops, and what can be done to prevent or reverse it. Many experts believe that eating a highly processed diet — especially while also leading a stressful and mostly sedentary lifestyle — is the perfect storm for developing leptin resistance.
Even if someone is genetically susceptible to weight gain or obesity, there’s still a lot they can do to help prevent this from happening, especially eating a nutrient-dense diet, getting enough exercise and taking steps to manage stress.
How to love your body?
With all these standards for beauty, it’s easy to plummet into a spiral of body-hating. Don’t succumb to the pressure! Love your body, no matter what!
Body shaming is, sadly, a trend these days. You have songs that hate on the skinny girls because “real women have curves.” Then you have songs about shaming people who don’t happen to have the body type of a Victoria’s Secret model. We all know that no one is perfect, but there are still some people who insist on telling people how they should look, how they should act, what size they should be, what their hair color should look like.
Everyone has the right to love their own body. Whether you’re skinny, fat, tall, short, missing a limb, dark-skinned, pale-skinned, what have you, every single body in the world deserves to be loved. It’s just a shame that so many people insist on hating on their bodies, simply because they don’t conform to the unrealistic standards set by society.
Why is turmeric such a magical herb?
Recently, it became once again evident how mainstream media is being manipulated by Big Pharma to scare the public away from using well-known and empirically proven supplements towards using pharmaceutical medicine.
One such health scare tactic was aimed towards the use of curcumin, which has become one of the most popular health supplements , among which to support people recovering from breast cancer.
Apparently, one effect of curcumin is that it speeds up detoxification processes in the liver, which results in medicine being broken down more easily.
In this particular health scare, that's an undesirable side-effect because tamoxifen, a frequently used post-treatment drug, is also broken down more rapidly and hence, becomes less effective at lower dosages, when combined with high dosages of curcumin.
While this was touted as proof how dangerous it is to take unproven herbal supplements, this is nothing out of the ordinary. Many other products can speed up the liver detoxification process, with the most famous of them being the mood-enhancing herb St. John's Wort.
However, there are other products that do the contrary, among which grapefruit as well as green tea , which slow down the same detoxification liver enzyme.
Some of you may not be aware yet why both turmeric and curcumin have become such popular condiments as well as food supplements. Therefore we present you a breakdown on what curcumin is about.
How to make a habit out of good intentions
Sometimes you stumble on articles, that are too good to pass up on. For those who have started the year with good intentions, we are sharing an article on how to make a habit out of good intentions. It's written by a guy who changed his habits after he became a father and wanted to be a good parent by setting an example.
“Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones.”
You probably agree with that statement.
But, for you (and everyone else) the problem is that good habits are hard to form and bad habits are easy to keep.
It is certainly true for me. Like most of us, I meant to start exercising for about six years after I started my career.
But it never happened. I’d do it for two or three weeks here and there, but nothing that ever stuck.
Then, all of a sudden, it did.
And it did because something changed for me. I had a son that was old enough to mimic me and that I wanted to be able to keep up with for the next twenty years. That scared me straight essentially.
In a number of areas in my life, including fitness, I realized he was going to base a significant portion of his view of how to live life and what habits were important off of what he watched me do.
So I stopped acting like I was going start exercising and I actually did it.
To create my new habit, I used a combination of the techniques below. You can use them to firm up your new habit and get your good habit quotient up.
