F1rst Nutrition - Purpose Lipoxanthin Metabolism Support - 90 Vegetarian Capsules

First Nutrition Purpose Lipoxanthing Metabolism Support is a patent-pending, multi-action nutritional formula that stimulates thermogenesis in two complementary pathways while supporting normal blood sugar metabolism.

Your metabolism is responsible for burning calories and creating energy from food and stored glycogen and fat (lipids). Thermogenesis is the process of heat "thermo" creation "-genesis". Within the body, this leads to increased calorie and fat burning. Lipoxanthin's patent-pending thermogenic blend of fucoxanthin from seaweed and natural caffeine from coffee beans stimulate thermogenesis in two different pathways, while the Gluco Support blend with berberine plus patented Cinnulin cinnamon extract and Chromax chromium picolinate to help maintain blood glucose within a healthy range and the LipoCRP blend provides antioxidant cell protection.

What is Lipoxanthin?Lipxanthin is designed to be used in conjunction with the Live with Purpose program for maintaining a health metabolism.

What Does It Do?Lipoxanthin is a patent pending, multi-action formulation to support metabolism by creating thermogenesis, supporting blood sugar metabolism, and providing critical antioxidant support in both fat and water soluble tissues. When used in conjunction with the Live with Purpose meal and exercise plan, Lipoxanthin's patent-pending, multi-action formula supports metabolism three ways:

  1. Creating thermogenesis in two complementary pathways so that you burn more calories. Fucoxanthin, a carotenoid compound found in seaweeds, can generate thermogenesis with in the cell via UCP-1, a non-stimulant pathway within the fat cell. Caffeine from coffee beans, guarana and green tea is one of the most researched thermogenic compounds, working within cells to stimulate thermogenesis and helping maintain the cells' energy burning processes.
  2. Supporting healthy blood sugar response and blunting blood sugar spikes, with the Gluco Support blend of berberine, Cinnulin PF, and Chromax chromium picolinate. These ingredients work together to blunt blood sugar spikes and to increase insulin sensitivity, and important mechanism in fat storage.
  3. Providing antioxidant support in both water and fatty tissues, with the LipoCRP blend of water-soluble vitamin C and patented Hidrox hydroxytyrosol from olives, a universal antioxidant active in both water and fatty tissues. Antioxidant support can reduce markers of silent inflammation, used by fat cells for signaling.

Effective weight loss requires a sophisticated, multi-pronged approachOnce, we believed that fat cells were simple warehouses for excess calories and being overweight or obese was seen as failing to expend as many calories as a person consumed. Our modern understanding, however, is that fat cells, also called adipose tissue, secrete a variety of biomarkers to influence numerous bodily functions such as metabolism. In overweight and obese people, this endocrine response largely works to preserve the body's body-fat set-point, which is why people typically return to their pre-diet weight even after weight loss.

Obesity and overweight conditions are now known to be chronic, systemic inflammatory conditions where energy contained in the adipose tissue cannot effectively be moved out of the fat cells or into the other cells of the body as necessary to provide cellular energy and consume excess body fat.

There are three main challenges to address in aiming to treat obesity as a chronic, systemic inflammatory condition:

  • Reducing inflammation so that energy can be moved from the fat cells into the bloodstream;
  • Blunting blood sugar spikes and restoring insulin sensitivity so that glucose and lipids in the bloodstream can be moved into cells to be burned as fuel;
  • Stimulating thermogenesis so that the body recruits excess energy to be burned to create heat and therefore consume more calories than would be necessary for basal body functions and exercise alone.

Purpose Lipoxanthin addresses all three of these necessary functions with a targeted blend of nutritional supplements that support each challenge from multiple pathways.

Antioxidant protection to reduce inflammation with LipoCRPTM BlendTo reduce inflammation, Lipoxanthin includes LipoCRP a blend of powerful antioxidants that includes clinically demonstrated levels of vitamin C with hydroxytyrosol from organic olives, a super-antioxidant and the most powerful component of olive oil. Together, these antioxidants protect cells and potentiate other components of Lipoxanthin. Further, these components have been shown to reduce serum levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) a primary diagnostic biomarker for inflammation within the body.

Improve glucose and insulin sensitivity levels with Gluco Support BlendTo blunt sugar spikes and manage insulin resistance, Lipoxanthin includes three powerful glucose management supplements: Berberine, Cinnulin PF cinnamon extract and Chromax brand chromium picolinate. Each of these tackles insulin resistance and blood sugar management via different pathways.

Berberine is an alkloid compound found in numerous plants. Studies have shown that it can be as effective at clearing glucose from the blood as the leading prescription diabetes drug Metformin. Berberine may also help to restore insulin sensitivity.

Cinnulin PF is a proprietary water-soluble extract of cinnamon bark (Cinnamomum burmannii). It is extracted in a process that conserves the active type-A procyanidin polymers that are key to the extract's metabolic function while eliminating the coumadin in some cinnamon that may build up in the body when taking theraputic doses. Cinnulin PF is a powerful antioxidant that has been shown to reduce fasting blood glucose levels and systolic blood pressure and to improve body composition by lowering body fat and raising lean body mass in test subjects with prediabetes and metabolic syndrome. Cinnulin PF improves insulin sensitivity by regulating protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP-1) that can block the insulin receptors which normally allow insulin to shuttle glucose into healthy cells but have become blocked by PTP-1 in insulin-resistant cells.

Chromax brand chromium picolinate also improves insulin signaling and insulin sensitivity in resistant cells. Chromium picolinate has limited effect on normal weight individuals, but in those who are overweight and obese or suffering from insulin resistance, diabetes and metabolic syndrome, chromium picolinate has been regularly observed to to improve metabolic health by normalizing glucose and insulin levels and improving serum lipid levels into healthier ranges.

Enhance Thermogenesis with Lipoxanthin Thermogenic BlendThe patent pending Lipoxanthin Thermogenic Blend combines two powerful thermogenic compounds that work through different metabolic pathways to encourage cells to burn more glucose and lipids than they need for energy alone. This excess energy is converted to heat. Thermogenesis means "heat" (thermo) "creation" (genesis). Converting excess energy to heat allows more stored fat to be burned than would be needed for basal metabolic functions and exercise alone.

The Lipoxanthin Thermogenic Blend combines the stimulant caffeine from green tea leaves and coffee beans with the powerful non-stimulant thermogenic compound fucoxanthin a carotenoid found in various seaweeds including those common in Japanese cuisine. Fucoxanthin has been shown to exert a thermogenic action by inducing the expression of uncoupling proteins.

Mitochondria are the power plants of mammal cells—converting energy in the form of sugars and lipids into ATP, which is the fuel that muscle cells use to contract. Normally, the consumption of energy is directly tied or "coupled" to producing ATP rather than creating heat. Uncoupling proteins trigger certain cells (i.e. uncoupling protein 1 or UCP1 in "brown fat" cells) to uncouple or separate cellular respiration from energy production. Instead, the sugars and lipids are turned into heat. This is thermogenesis.

Brown fat thermogenesis requires UCP1 in order to occur. In rodent studies, rats with genetic obesity were found to have low levels of UCP1 which led to low energy burning through thermogenesis. By increasing UCP1, thermogenesis could be restored and genetic obesity treated. The rats' bodies regained the ability to "waste" some energy as heat to maintain a beneficial body composition.

Consuming fucoxanthin has been shown in two rodent studies to increase the amount of UCP1 in white adipose tissue., UCP1 primarily exists in brown adipose tissue, or brown fat, which is a form of fat that helps rodents generate heat rather than store energy as white adipose tissue does. Humans don't have much brown fat. But by increasing the amounts of UCP1 in white adipose tissue, it's believed that it can create thermogenesis like brown fat.

The first human study of fucoxanthin provides evidence that this may be the case. In one 16-week study, obese women on fucoxanthin supplements lost an average of 11 pounds more than the placebo group.

By stimulating thermogenesis with fucoxanthin and caffeine, Lipoxanthin makes more rapid weight loss possible.

Why Lipoxanthin MattersWith its multiple-pathway, coordinated approach to weight loss and metabolism support, Lipoxanthan offers a new approach to weight loss for anyone who is overweight or obese and wants to find an effective supplement to help them lose weight.

Lipoxanthin addresses multiple causes of inflammatory fat conditions to facilitate weight loss. It is especially appropriate for anyone who:

  • desires to maintain a healthy weight
  • is overweight or obese
  • is insulin resistant or prediabetic
  • suffers from metabolic syndrome or Type 2 diabetes
  • has elevated CRP levels
  • can't lose weight despite having tried multiple approaches in the past
  • has been on yo-yo diets

ThermogenesisLipoxanthin combines multiple approaches to weight loss. The Thermogenic Blend uses caffeine and fucoxanthin to stimulate thermogenesis. Thermogenesis allows cells to convert energy to heat rather than muscle motion. It essentially makes the body less efficient at using food for muscle energy so that this wasteful use of the energy helps eliminate fat from the system.

Gluco SupportMany people who are overweight or obese are insulin resistant meaning that their bodies no longer properly respond to the hormone insulin to clear sugar from the blood. This can create a vicious circle of inflammation, and more insulin resistance that makes it very difficult to lose weight.

Lipoxanthin's Gluco Support Blend contains supplements like Cinnamon, Berberine, and chromium picolinate, which each addresses insulin resistance via a unique mechanism of action.

Antioxidant SupportObesity is an inflammatory condition that increases inflammation markers like CRP throughout the body. Lipoxanthin's LipoCRP is a blend of powerful antioxidants (vitamin C and hydroxytyrosol from olives) that can reduce inflammation markers. These antioxidants may increase fat burning during exercise.
