Epitome is a brand new, cutting edge development in fat loss. It works in ways we've only previously been able to fantasize about. Epitome helps control appetite and accelerate fat burning by manipulation of the Leptin pathway. By increasing Leptin sensitivity and keeping Leptin levels within normal range, the brain and body self-adjust to drive your physique where it should be: Lean. Leptin signals will tell your body that it's not hungry while at the same time telling your brain to burn that fat!
With the additon of Queen Bee Acid, a component of Royal Jelly, we boost AMPk signals, literally causing the body to react as if you are smack dab in the middle of a heavy and demanding workout, causing additional acceleration of fat loss. Epitome is exactly what it promises - the epitome of fat loss.
Epitome can offer the following benefits to the endomorph:
Constant Fed State signaling. This allows you to employ a large drop in calories during acute fat loss phases, or gradually keep dropping them lower and lower during long-term fat loss phases without ever hitting a plateau.
Optimal Leptin levels and sensitivity
Reduced appetite and cravings
No re-feeds necessary
Reduced muscle loss during dieting
Increased rate of fat oxidation
Immune system support (the immune system takes a hit due to reduced Leptin during calorie restriction)
Makes your body act like an ectomorph or mesomorph
What is AMPK?
Adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase, or AMPK, is basically the cellular signaling equivalent of exercise. Once activated, it triggers fatty acid oxidation and the generation of ketone bodies, inhibits cholesterol synthesis and lipogenesis, stimulates skeletal muscle glucose uptake, and favorably modulates insulin secretion. Increasing AMPK activation can actually repair damaged insulin signaling.
Fat loss and fat gain are moderated by numerous complex mechanisms, and AMPk is a key player in this flux. Appropriate levels of AMPk activation are great for fat loss.
AMPK phosphorylates, and inhibits the aforementioned SREBP-1c (1). Without adequate AMPK activation, SREBP-1c reacts to glucose elevations causing lipogenesis and lipid accumulation.
When looking at fat loss research, data on Type II Diabetes is an interesting and highly relevant place to look, even for those lacking the clinical symptoms. One of the ways the drug Metformin works (most people with T2DM are prescribed this right off the bat), is through AMPK activation.
To reiterate, activation basically has the same effect as exercise, from a fat loss/metabolic perspective.
Take 1 capsule mid-morning, and a second capsule mid-afternoon.
