Weight Management Formula
Usage of Douglas Labs Metabolic Lean™:
Metabolic Lean™ by Douglas Laboratories is a novel weight management formula that includes three branded
and clinically studied ingredients:
- Meratrim™ plant extract
- Capsimax™ capsicum extract
- Zychrome® chromium complex
This special combination of ingredients may improve lipolysis, thermogenic activity, and
insulin function†. The ingredients in Metabolic Lean™ also help to increase adiponectin levels which facilitate
proper fat metabolism and glucose regulation†.
Meratrim™ is a proprietary plant extract blend for weight management derived from two plants, Sphaeranthus
indicus and Garcinia mangostana, traditionally used in Southeast Asian culture. Meratrim has been shown in
two independent, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies to significantly reduce body
weight, BMI, and waist circumference within 8 weeks when used in combination with a diet and exercise plan†.
Meratrim appears to achieve this by modulating the accumulation of fat while simultaneously increasing fat
burning†. Toxicological studies on Meratrim have demonstrated a wide margin of safety.
Capsimax™ capsicum extract is a proprietary encapsulated form of premium, highly concentrated natural
capsicum fruit extract manufactured from hot red peppers. Capsaicinoids are a group of compounds which
cause the “heat” found in hot peppers. In fact, over the past 30 years, studies including animal and human
subjects support the potential of red hot capsicum and capsaicinoids as a safe, effective ingredient to aid in
weight management†. Benefits of capsicum and capsaicinoids in animal and human studies have shown that
it helps manage appetite, supports healthy metabolism to burn calories, and helps induce thermogenesis.†
Capsimax™ is a patent-pending encapsulated form of premium, highly concentrated natural capsicum extract.
Using a proprietary matrix, Capsimax capsicum extract gives users the maximum effectiveness of
capsaicinoids without any oral or gastric irritation, thus solving the problem of capsicum compliance.
Zychrome™ is a unique, patent-pending chromium complex consisting of chromium, niacin and L-cysteine
(chromium dinicocysteinate). Seventeen chromium complexes were screened in preclinical studies in order to
arrive at the complex found in Zychrome™. In vitro and in vivo studies demonstrated that Zychrome is more
efficacious than other forms of chromium in supporting healthy fasting glucose levels, glycated hemoglobin
levels (HbA1c), insulin levels, CRP, MCP-1, ICAM-1 and oxidative stress levels†. These effects of Zychrome
are mediated by the regulation of cell signal transduction pathways associated with insulin function, glucose
control and vascular inflammation†. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study showed that
Metabolic Lean™Zychrome significantly modulated the levels of insulin and insulin resistance as well as the inflammatory cytokine TNF and protein carbonyl content, a marker of oxidative stress. Toxicological studies have
demonstrated a wide margin of safety.
Metabolic Lean™ is indicated as a dietary supplement for individuals desiring weight management support.
Adults take 1 capsule 30 minutes before breakfast and 1 capsule 30 minutes before dinner, or as directed by
