What is Essential Boost?
Essential Boost is a revolutionary supplement that combines the benefits of a complete multivitamin with fat burning and energy boosting herbal extracts.* Essential Boost uses only proven ingredients and contains absolutely no Ephedra or Ma Huang.*
Why Green Tea Extract?
Green tea is one of the most common beverages in the world, and its health properties are legendary.* Essential Boost's green tea extract contains a high concentration of naturally occuring epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). EGCG has been shown to help increase certain neurotransmitters that signal your body to burn more fat.* Other studies conclude that EGCG increases energy expenditure, helps prevent fat absorption, and helps burn calories.* In addition, green tea extract has wonderful health properties.* EGCG can boost your immune system and is one of the most potent antioxidants available.*
Anti-oxidants: Slows Down Cellular Aging *
Oxidants (also called free radicals) are naturally occuring chemical compounds that can damage your cell membranes.* Essential Boost is formulated to contain powerful Antioxidants such as green tea extract (EGCG), Vitamin C and Vitamin E.* These Antioxidants help prevent Oxidants from harming the cells in your body.*
Herbal Extracts: Boosts Energy *
Essential Boost contains safe, natural and powerful energy boosting herbal extracts.* Guarana contains natural compounds called methylxanthines that gently boost your energy and help your body generate energy from stored body fat.* Unlike many foods that naturally contain caffeine (for example, coffee beans), Guarana's methylxanthines have a sustained energy effect.* Essential Boost also contains a well-known herb called Ginseng. This ancient root, revered by Chinese and Koreans, is legendary in its mental and physical energizing properties.*
Can't I just drink Green Tea?
Regular green tea does contain some EGCG, but only at low levels (about 1%). A recently published scientific study indicates that high concentrations (25%) of EGCG produce the desired fat burning results. Essential Boost was formulated to take advantage of these scientific findings. It's highly concentrated green tea extract contains 50% EGCG.*
Why are Vitamins and Minerals important?
Vitamin and minerals are food components that your body cannot make on its own. Hence they are essential for every biological process in the body, including energy generation and the normal growth and maintenance of healthy tissue. When your levels of vitamins and minerals drop in the bloodstream, critical components of energy production and vital cellular processes slow down. For example, low iron intake has been shown to reduce your ability to process oxygen, which lowers your energy level and reduces your ability to burn calories. In addition, some experts suggest that a daily multivitamin can enhance your overall health, and even slow the cellular aging process by as much as 40%.*
What clinical trials support Essential Boost?
Hundreds of clinical studies support the benefits of vitamins and minerals. That is why the federal Food and Drug Administration (the FDA) recommends specific daily dosages of certain vitamins and minerals. Essential Boost is specifically formulated to give you at least 100% of key FDA recommendations, while supplementing other critical vitamins and minerals. Many studies also suggest the health benefits of green tea. A recent article from Critical Review of Food Science and Nutrition states that tea is rich in catechins (also called polyphenols) which are potent antioxidants, and can help slow the cellular aging process. Other studies have found that ingestion of green tea extracts helps reduce body weight. A recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that a green tea extract increases energy expenditure. Another study, published in the journal Phytomedicine, found that green tea extract helps prevent fat absorption and helps burn calories. The study participants were given a daily dosage of green tea extract (25% EGCG). After 3 months, the average participant reduced body weight by 4.6% and waist circumference by 4.5%. The green tea extract in Essential Boost contains 50% EGCG.*
What is the recommended dose?
The recommended dose of Essential Boost is one caplet in the morning and one caplet at lunch each day. As with all vitamins, you should not exceed the recommended dose. By taking EssentialBoost at breakfast and at lunch, you'll experience a boost of energy throughout the day.*
When should I take Essential Boost?
It's best to take Essential Boost right before meals: one caplet at breakfast and one caplet at lunch. Clinical studies show that taking the supplements right before a meal with a tall glass of water produces the best fat burning results. As with any multivitamin, you can avoid the possibility of mild stomach discomfort by taking Essential Boost with meals.*
Does Essential Boost contain Ephedra or Ma Huang?
We pride ourself on providing the highest quality supplements which are safe and effective. Essential Boost contains absolutely no ephedra (sometimes called ma huang). Although ephedra is a popular ingredient in other energy boosting supplements, it has recently been linked to health problems - which is why there is absolutely no ephedra in Essential Boost. Using Essential Boost is a safe way to burn calories and get more energy.*
Why are there warnings on the label?
Essential Boost contains iron, a very important mineral for your health. Numerous studies show that many women's diets are low in iron, and that taking more iron can significantly boost your energy and improve your mood. However, iron can be harmful if ingested in large quantities by children. Therefore, the FDA requires a child warning statement on all iron-containing supplements.*
