When it comes to weight loss, there's no lack of fad diets promising fast results. But such diets limit your nutritional intake, can be unhealthy, and tend to fail in the long run. The key to achieving and maintaining healthy weight and BMI isn't about short-term dietary changes. It's about a lifestyle that includes healthy eating, regular physical activity, and balancing the number of calories you consume with the number of calories your body uses.

Relationship between Calories and Fat Accumulation

Excess calories that are not used up by the body are converted to fat and stored in cells called "adipocytes" and through a process known as "adipogenesis." These fat cells can be found throughout the body, but the accumulation of adipocytes in the abdomen area is of great concern because fat storage in the adipose tissues in the abdominal area presents more than a cosmetic problem; the visceral fat in this area of the body is a high risk factor for a number of obesity-related health conditions.

Body fat can be managed in two ways:

  • Adipogenesis - This is the process by which excess calories not used up by the body are converted to fat and stored in fat cells known as adipocytes. Inhibiting the storage of fat at the cellular level is one way of minimizing fat accumulation in the body.
  • Lipogenesis - This is the process by which fat is released from the adipose tissues to meet the body's energy needs. A second way of minimizing fat storage is to consume fewer calories than what the body needs, which will force the body to burn stored fat for energy.

About Meratrim®

Meratrim® is a 100% natural, safe, non-stimulant, proprietary blend of two plant extracts, Sphaeranthus indicus flower heads and Garcinia mangostana fruit rind, with a history of traditional use in the Southeast Asian culture. It is made by combining extracts of S. indicus flower heads, standardized to 3% 7-hydroxyfrullanolide, with extracts of the fruit rind of G. mangostana, standardized to 2% alpha-mangostin. Each plant contributes an essential part to Meratrim’s ability to affect multiple pathways involved in fat cell formation (adipogenesis) and breakdown of stored fat cells (lipogenesis) for ultimate weight management benefits.

Meratrim® - Mechanism of Action

Excess body fat is typically stored in the waist and hip areas. Clinical trials have shown that Meratrim® use is associated with reduced inches off these particular areas, helping to slim the stomach and hips. Meratrim®’s ability to burn fat, reduce fat storage and ultimately reduce hip and waist size may be due to its clinically-proven ability to affect both fat accumulation (adipogenesis) and fat breakdown (lipogenesis).

ANTI-ADIPOGENIC (FAT STORAGE INHIBITION) ACTIVITY OF MERATRIM®

  • Reduces the expression of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR), which is a hormone receptor involved in the creation and growth of fat cells*
  • Reduces the expression of adipocyte differentiation related protein (ADRP), a signaling protein that uptakes fatty acids that form lipid droplets, which are the main lipid store in fat-accumulating cells*
  • Reduces the expression of cluster of differentiation 36 (CD36), a trans-membrane receptor that facilitates fatty acid uptake by adipocytes*

PRO-LIPOLYTIC (FAT BREAKDOWN) ACTIVITY OF MERATRIM®

  • Reduces perilipin expression, which are adipocyte proteins that are localized at the surface of the lipid droplet and inhibit fat break down by restricting access of lipase to the lipid droplet*
  • Increases adiponectin levels, a protein hormone that helps break down fat*

Health Benefits of Meratrim®

In two human clinical studies a 2,000 calorie diet, exercise, and supplementation with Meratrim® showed that Meratrim®:

  • Supports weight-loss in as few as two weeks*
  • Supports reduction in waist size in two weeks*
  • Supports reduction in hip size in eight weeks*
  • Supports a healthy adiponectin level*
  • Burns body fat*

Meratrim® - Summary of Research Evidence

Meratrim® has been shown in two independent, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies to significantly reduce body weight, BMI, and waist circumference within two weeks. Meratrim® appears to achieve this by modulating the accumulation of fat while simultaneously increasing fat burning. Toxicological studies on Meratrim® have demonstrated a wide margin of safety.

STUDY 1

  • Treatment Group: Restricted Calorie Diet (2,000 calories / day) + Moderate Walking Exercises (30 minutes, 5x a week) + Meratrim®
  • Control Group: Restricted Calorie Diet (2,000 calories / day) + Moderate Walking Exercises (30 minutes, 5x a week) + Placebo

Study Results:

  • Individuals in the treatment group had a significant weight-loss of 11.2 lbs after eight weeks, 3.8-times more than the placebo group
  • Individuals who took Meratrim® saw significant reduction in body weight of 4.1 lbs in as early as two weeks, 3.3-fold better than individuals in the control group who took a placebo
  • Individuals in the treatment group saw a significant reduction of 1.66 inches in waist size after two weeks
  • At eight weeks, individuals in the treatment group had significantly reduced waist circumference (4.66 inches) & hip circumference (2.57 inches), at least 1.8-fold better than individuals in the control group who took a placebo

STUDY 2

  • Treatment Group: Restricted Calorie Diet (2,000 calories / day) + Moderate Walking Exercises (30 minutes, 5x a week) + Meratrim®
  • Control Group: Restricted Calorie Diet (2,000 calories / day) + Moderate Walking Exercises (30 minutes, 5x a week) + Placebo

Study Results:

  • Individuals in the treatment group had significantly reduced body weight by 11.5 lbs after eight weeks, 3.5-fold better than placebo
  • A significant reduction in body weight of 4.5 lbs was seen after two weeks for those in the treatment group, 2.7-fold better than those in the control group who took a placebo
  • By the end of the study, individuals in the treatment group had significantly reduced waist circumference by 4.7 inches and hip circumference by 2.5 inches

  • Meratrim® is derived from plants with a long history of traditional use in Southeastern Asian culture
  • Clinical research demonstrates no side effects attributed to the blend
  • The minor adverse events reported were evenly distributed between individuals who took Meratrim® and those who did not
  • A comprehensive safety profile on Meratrim®, including a 90-day broad spectrum safety evaluation, indicates no adverse effects even at acute oral dosages
  • Meratrim® appears to be a safe and effective supplement that supports healthy weight loss and BMI in humans

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the active ingredients in Meratrim™ Gold™?
The active ingredients in Meratrim™ Gold™ are 3% 7-hydroxyfrullanolide from the flower heads of S. indicus and 2% alpha-mangostin from the fruit rind of G. mangostana. Each of these plant extracts contributes an essential part to Meratrim’s ability to affect multiple pathways involved in fat cell formation (adipogenesis) and breakdown of stored fat cells (lipogenesis) for ultimate weight management benefits.

Does Meratrim™ Gold™ contain anything other than the active ingredient?
In addition to the active ingredients, Meratrim™ Gold™ contains the following inactive ingredients:

  • Microcrystalline cellulose and vegetable stearate - These two ingredients are part of the Meratrim® proprietary blend and were added by the ingredient manufacturer (and NOT NutriGold®) to ensure product integrity during manufacturing and are listed on the label as part of our commitment to transparency so customers can make informed purchasing decisions. It is against NutriGold®'s philosophy to include any stearates, laurates, sulfates, or dioxides to a product during manufacturing.
  • Vegetarian Capsule - This is made of non-GMO plant cellulose and is used for encapsulating the product.

What is the recommended dosage of Meratrim®?
The recommended dosage of Meratrim® is 400 mg two times daily, 30 minutes before breakfast and dinner. This is the same dosage that was shown in two human clinical studies to support fat metabolism and reductions in waist and hip size measurements when taken in conjunction with a restricted calorie diet and moderate exercise program.

Is Meratrim™ Gold™ free of allergens and non-GMO?
Meratrim™ Gold™ has been verified free of egg, gluten, milk, peanut, shellfish, and soy by an independent lab. This product is also verified non-GMO by the Non-GMO Project™.

Is Meratrim™ Gold™ suitable for vegans / vegetarians?
Because Meratrim™ Gold™ does not contain any animal-derived ingredients, it is suitable for vegans / vegetarians.

How long do I have to take Meratrim™ Gold™ before I see any benefits?
Some participants in the two clinical studies saw weight-loss in as early as two weeks when they took Meratrim® in conjunction with a restricted calorie diet and exercise program, but participants, overall, saw reductions in weight and hip and waist size measurements in about 8 weeks. Because individual results can and do vary with any weight-loss supplement, it reasonable to conclude that it can take between 2 weeks and 8 weeks to experience noticeable weight-loss benefits.

Is Meratrim® suitable for individuals with a medical condition?
Individuals with a known or suspected medical condition should always talk to a licensed medical professional before beginning any form of supplementation. It is never advisable to self-diagnose or self-treat a medical condition.

Does Meratrim® have any side effects or interactions?
Meratrim® does not have any known side effects. However, it is always recommended to consult your healthcare provider before taking any nutritional supplements, especially if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or currently taking any OTC or prescription medications for a health condition.

Is Meratrim® safe for long-term use?
Yes. Meratrim® is safe when used as recommended and under the guidance of a qualified healthcare professional because it is completely natural and does not contain any stimulants.
