EndoTrim™ is a comprehensive endocrine balancing formula designed to promote optimal insulin, leptin and cortisol balance. This formula is for anyone wishing to improve body composition. EndoTrim™ contains the non-stimulating American ginseng for costisol balance. Banaba, chromium and vanadium are included to enhance glucose control and insulin performance. ForsLean™ (Coleus forskohli), Garcinia cambogia, and green tea extract promote lean body mass through ergogenic activity. Activated B vitamins, magnesium and L-carnitine provide nutrients for optimal mitochondrial function and metabolism. N-acetyl-tyrosine supports thyroid function and proper catecholamine balance. The addition of GABA, along with magnesium, provides an element of craving control to this unique product. These nutrients also help keep us calm when stressed.

EndoTrim™ is a comprehensive endocrine and metabolic balancing formula designed to promote optimal body composition by favorably modulating the hormones insulin, leptin and cortisol, balancing blood sugar, optimizing the lipoprotein lipase enzyme, and limiting cravings. Ingredients in EndoTrim™ were chosen based on the latest research in overcoming the challenges of losing body fat while maintaining and even increasing lean body mass and basal metabolic rate. This formula was also designed to control appetite, the stress response, moods and energy. EndoTrim™ contains the non-stimulating American ginseng for cortisol balance. The herbs Banaba and Camellia sinensis (green tea) are included to enhance glucose control and insulin performance along with the minerals chromium, vanadium, zinc and magnesium. ForsLean™ (Coleus forskohli), Garcinia cambogia (Hydroxycitric acid), and the polyphenol EGCg from green tea promote lean body mass through ergogenic activity, stimulating metabolism and allowing for greater fat burning. Activated B vitamins, magnesium and carnitine provide nutrients for optimal mitochondrial function and metabolism. N-acetyl-tyrosine supports thyroid function and proper catecholamine balance. The addition of GABA, along with magnesium, provides an element of craving control to this unique product. These nutrients help keep us calm when stressed which helps reduce stress-related eating.
How do these ingredients work?
Coleus forskohli, a root extract of the perilla plant, stimulates the metabolic messenger, cyclic AMP and its active principle, forskolin, has been utilized to increase lean body mass. (http://www.forslean.com/clinical.htm). Designs for Health chose the only clinically researched Coleus on the market, trademarked as ForsLean®. ForsLean has been documented in 2 open field and 2 double-blind studies for management of healthy body weight and body composition. ForsLean® has obtained the US and EC patents for use of diterpene forskolin in enhancing lean body mass and promoting weight loss (US patent #5,804,596) as well as pending patents in Japan and Canada.

The health promoting value of increasing lean body mass can be appreciated indirectly due to the known benefits derived from physical exercise in building lean body mass and stamina. Consider that lean body mass correlates positively with the performance of an incremental treadmill exercise test and that the fat percentage in the abdomen is significantly less in athletes than non-exercising controls. Because abdominal fatty tissue is a significant risk factor for cardiovascular disease, exercise (as well as any other means) that results in increased lean body mass may have a positive impact on long-term cardiovascular risk and life span.
What is lean body mass?
Lean body mass consists not only of muscles, but also of vital organs, bone and bone marrow, connective tissue and body water. Lean body mass can simply be described as total body weight minus fat. The proportion of lean body mass to fat not only determines the body’s aesthetic look, but more importantly, it determines a person’s physical fitness, health status and the risk of morbidity (disease) and premature mortality due to variety of causes. A person can assess approximately his/her lean body mass by calculating body mass index (BMI), attained by dividing body weight in kilograms by the square of height in meters. The BMI norm is between 18 and 25 kg/m2. A value over 25 puts a person in the overweight category. The increase in lean body mass in an overweight person can indirectly be assessed by a drop in
