Optimax Body Slim
TO STIMULATE METABOLISM AND MAINTAIN WEIGHT BALANCE.
Stimulating the metabolism mainly means increasing the use of certain components, such as fats stored in adipose tissue, to produce energy. This process is called thermogenesis, or energy production from the oxidation of body fat. Temogenesis is called adaptive, as it can be modified by certain factors, such as exposure to cold, or foods introduced with the diet. Thus, increased thermogenesis corresponds to increased energy production from the oxidation of body fat, resulting in weight reduction.
BODY WEIGHT BALANCE
Maintaining body weight generally parallels the stimulation of metabolism. Some substances, such as caffeine, have a direct effect on the metabolism, stimulating lipolysis, but also indirectly by stimulating the release of catecholamines, which in turn induce a thermogenic effect, thus helping to lose weight but also to maintain it.
Water retention is defined as a condition in which the body has a tendency to retain and accumulate fluid.
A poor diet, a sedentary lifestyle, stress, hormonal imbalances, weight gain and cellulite can all contribute to a situation of retention, leading to the appearance of oedemas, which make the skin less toned and compact, and of course also to a widespread feeling of bloating, felt most strongly in the abdomen and legs.
