Flavanols extract from Cassia Nomame is a natural lipase inhibitor, which inhibits the lipase enzyme that breaks down fat for absorption. With this enzyme "blocked" from doing its job, fat passes through the body unabsorbed. Cassia Nomame also acts as a natural diuretic providing thermogenesis action to stimulate the burning of fat cells within the body.
Flavanols binds to alpha-2 receptors (which are most abundant in the thighs and buttocks), "drawing out" the fatty acids from the individual fat cell. It dramatically mobilizes stored fat lipids for thermo genesis in preference to carbohydrates. It has also been proven to safely increase hormonal thyroid output without interrupting the body's natural production of thyroid hormone. Flavanols actually inhibits the release of targeted enzymes that control fat storage while also stimulating cellular energy, effectively causing the individual fat cells to burn fatty acids.
