Metabolaid®

Monteloeder

Metabolaid® is a proprietary formula based on hibiscus and lemon verbena extracts, containing highly purified in anthocyanins and verbascoside, respectively. Clinical studies have shown that the formula decreases fat accumulation in the adipose tissue and liver, while also increasing energy uptake by the muscles, which overall gives rise to a “fat-burning” effect on the body. Furthermore, the ingredient has been demonstrated to help reduce total cholesterol and LDL, triglycerides, as well as blood pressure. Therefore, it is an ingredient targeted to manage excess body weight/ fat and support cardiovascular health.
