Hourglass Fit:
Ingredients

It’s no secret that women face unique challenges when it comes to losing weight.

With hormones, cravings and the hustle and bustle of modern life getting in the way, dropping a few pounds is no easy task. Believe us, we’ve been there too!

When we sat down to design Hourglass Fit, we knew we didn’t want just another standard fat burner - there are enough of those in the world already. Instead, we wanted to create the perfect women’s fat burner.

Our goal was to craft a diet support system that allows women to face each of these unique challenges head on and overcome them. And we wanted to empower other women to combat hormonal cravings, take control of their diet, say no to temptation, fight fatigue and, most importantly, burn more fat. These objectives are at the heart of the Hourglass Fit

After weeks of diligent research, we landed on nine highly researched ingredients. Each carefully chosen for their compatibility with the female physiology and their capacity to support each element of the weight loss process.

This simple yet powerful formula is designed for women like you - to optimize your weight loss results. As a woman, you won’t find a better fit in a fat burner. Let’s take a closer look at what’s inside.

Vitamin
B6

This water-soluble nutrient plays an essential role in maintaining a huge number of metabolic processes.

With optimal amounts in your body, vitamin B6 has been proven to help you process carbohydrates more efficiently and heighten fat oxidization [1]. In terms of weight loss, this means your body will use glycogen more efficiently, so there’s less stored as fat. On top of that, you’ll be able to draw on fat for fuel more quickly. All of this adds up to one thing – less fat on your frame.

It works in practice too. In a 2005 study, scientists discovered that women who regularly took multivitamins, B vitamins and Chromium over ten years experienced less weight gain than those who didn’t [3].

As a bonus, this vitamin is also a key player in promoting women’s health. One study found that it helped to regulate elements of the menstrual cycle by significantly reducing the symptoms of PMS [2].

A better mood throughout the month means a more positive outlook and a lot less comfort eating

Vitamin
B12

This is another key B vitamin every woman needs in her system whilst dieting – and for more than just fat burning. Vitamin B12 works alongside B6 to help keep your metabolic processes ticking along nicely, and has been linked to reduced weight gain over a ten year period [1].

However, we’ve added this ingredient for another, very important reason. Every woman knows what it’s like to be ‘hangry’ on a diet. It’s that feeling where you’re tired, angry and, most importantly, you want to give up.

Let’s face it, overcoming the mental obstacles of a diet is 80% of the challenge. But don’t fear, Hourglass Fit has your back. We’ve taken this into account with the addition of vitamin B12. It’s been proven in several studies to help combat the symptoms of depression [2][3].

By adding this powerhouse vitamin into the mix, we’ve given you an extra buffer against the damaging effects of fatigue. Instead of wanting to throw in the towel, you’ll feel positive and empowered on your weight loss journey!

Vitamin
D3

Also known as the ‘sunshine’ vitamin, D3 is a potent ingredient when it comes to both weight loss and maintaining female health. According to a review of vitamin D3 studies, almost half the population of the world are deficient in the nutrient [1].

In the same review, scientists found a correlation between low D3 levels and obesity [1]. When the vitamin was at optimal levels, they identified a link to leaner body compositions.

Other studies support these findings too. A 2014 study found that women who enjoyed healthy levels of D3 alongside diet and exercise lost more weight than those who didn’t supplement with the vitamin [2].

More D3 equals less fat – we had to make this vitamin part of our formula. And with so many of us deficient in the nutrient, we couldn’t afford to leave it out.

Optimal levels of the vitamin are also intrinsically linked with healthy female functions. D3 can help to reduce the likelihood of pelvic floor disorders and can even make for a healthier pregnancy [1].

Glucomannan

One study found that 50% of women in America crave chocolate at the onset of the menstrual cycle [1]. So many of us feel the pull of the sugary treats when Mother Nature visits, and these cravings can often mean the end of an otherwise amazing dieting effort.

To counteract that - and to give you more control over your hormonal urges - we’ve added a powerful, natural appetite suppressant: glucomannan.

One of nature’s most exciting creations for the world of fat burning, this is a soluble fiber found in the root of the konjac plant. When consumed, it expands in the stomach, slowing the emptying process and helping you stay fuller for longer [2]. By helping boost satiety (that ‘full’ feeling), it gives you the power to say no to treats and control your portion sizes more effectively [3]. It really works for weight loss, too. Check out the science:

This ingredient plays a fundamental role in helping women lose weight. Don’t just take our word for it - the experts love it too. One nutritionist claims it could be “the solution to the obesity epidemic in America” [5].

Capsimax®

This is the latest in supplementation technology. Using OmniBead™ developments, we can extract and deliver just the bioactive capsaicinoids from cayenne peppers, without the heat that usually comes with it.

This is important as capsaicins are the some of the most potent, and highly researched, natural thermogenic fat burners available. Capsimax® allows us to provide them in a highly concentrated serving.

A thermogenic works by heating up your body a little, which requires energy – hello higher metabolism! Science shows it can really help you burn more calories and melt away fat. Take a look:

One study found those who took the fiery ingredient experienced an increase in energy expenditure – that means more calories burned than you normally would, even at rest [1].

Another study on a group of women found that ingesting the capsaicins resulted in heightened fat oxidization. So, while you’re using additional calories, you’re also turning directly to fat over carbohydrates to fuel these extra energy requirements [2]. Remember how important it is for women to get a handle on those pesky cravings to lose weight? Well Capsimax® helps out with that, too.

Another study shows that adding capsaicinoids to your diet can suppress appetite [3]. We’ve chosen this ingredient to not only elevate your calorie burn, but to work alongside glucomannan and give you full control over your cravings too.

Green Tea Extract

When it comes to proven fat burners, Green Tea is unrivalled.

It’s one of the most popular and highly researched ingredients you’ll find, because it takes an all-encompassing, three-pronged approach to melting away fat stores.

The first line of defense against fat comes in the form of catechins called ECGCs. These have been proven to provide thermogenic benefits, which can boost energy expenditure during moderate exercise by up to 17% [1].

Secondly, it can elevate fat oxidization by 16% [2]. This works alongside vitamin B6 and Capsimax® to ensure your body is drawing on fat for energy as efficiently as possible.

Lastly, it can help to boost energy and endurance. Maintaining an active lifestyle, while essential to healthy weight loss, isn’t easy when you’re on a low-calorie diet. This is where you can lean on Hourglass Fit.

Green tea naturally contains a small amount of caffeine, which is enough to give you a clean energy lift, increase the output of your workouts and keep fatigue at bay [3].

All this combines to create an exceptional fat burning ingredient, that supports your dieting efforts. The results check out too. In a huge review of 11 individual studies, the overwhelming result showed that green tea can help to reduce body weight and maintain lower levels of fat [4].

Not only will it help you say goodbye to those unwanted pounds, it’ll keep them off too.

Guarana

This is the unsung heroine of the Hourglass Fit formula.

Guarana is rich in antioxidants, including the catechins that make green tea such a powerful fat burner [1] – which allows the two to complement each other beautifully.

To add to that, it also contains a portion of caffeine, which can ward off fatigue and enhance endurance during a workout [2]. This, coupled with the stimulants in green tea, provides a small yet powerful energy boost which can support your active lifestyle.

This combination of caffeine and catechins has been shown to heighten metabolism and contribute toward weight loss [3]. By combining guarana with green tea and Capsimax®, your metabolism should be in overdrive, your energy levels should be high and your ability to burn fat should be maximized. We’ve left nothing to chance with this formula.

What’s more, opting for guarana allows us to adapt Hourglass Fit to the female physiology even more.

Research shows that women are more negatively affected by high levels of caffeine than men and can often feel uncomfortable side effects [4]. By offering an alternative to pure caffeine anhydrous and providing a smaller serving, the Hourglass Fit formula delivers a more comfortable experience for females.

Chromium®

This trace nutrient has been added to the Hourglass Fit formula to further support the weight loss journey of women.

When compared to a placebo, Chromium has been shown to reduce food intake and cravings, too [1]. We’ve got a couple of ingredients like this in the formula. However, this one is special.

It’s been proven to limit the cravings associated with carbohydrates [2]. This is especially powerful in a women’s fat burner formula, as research shows it’s the sugary treats we crave the most [3].

With this ingredient in the mix you’ll find it easier than ever to say no to temptation.

If that wasn’t enough, Chromium has also been shown to reduce the accumulation of visceral fat compared to a placebo [4]. All this combines to help you consume less calories and create a healthier, happier body.

Bioperine®

This is another essential supporting star in the Hourglass Fit formula. By adding Bioperine® to the formula, we’re giving you access to a highly bioavailable form of piperine.

When introduced to a high-fat diet, piperine is shown to reduce weight gain, without altering your food intake [1]. Piperine can also initiate fat regulating receptors TRPA1 and TRPV1. When this happens, these receptors can elevate your metabolism and suppress the growth of fat cells [2].

Aside from helping you drop the pounds, this ingredient works in perfect harmony with the rest of the formula by amplifying the effectiveness of every other ingredient.

Research shows piperine helps to increase the absorption of nutrients through the intestinal tract, giving the other ingredients in this formula the best possible chance to work their magic [3].


Bioperine ties off this formula beautifully by elevating Hourglass Fit and taking its effectiveness to the next level.
