SafSlim and Baum’s Brand Supplements

Have You Tried the Belly Fat Buster Seen on Dr. Oz?

Saf Slim is backed by science!

In a 16-week, double-blind controlled study conducted at Ohio State University, researchers compared Safflower Oil (SAF) and conjugated linoleic acids (CLA) with 55 overweight, diabetic and post-menopausal women. The findings showed: CLA participants lost more total adipose, however SAF outperformed CLA in measurements of trunk adipose (belly fat). Adiponectin, the hormone that increases metabolism by telling the brain it is not hungry, increased by 20 percent and SAF significantly decreased fasting glucose. These results were obtained with no exercise or diet!

Before you rush out and buy Safflower oil at the grocery store, check your labels! You probably won’t find a high-linoleic safflower oil in the grocery store. The safflower oil commonly found in the grocery store is an oleic oil, a non-essential fatty acid generally used for cooking. It has a higher smoke point for cooking purposes. The safflower oil high in linoleic acid is not designed for cooking because it has a low smoke point.

Saf Slim contains the high-linoleic, essential fatty acid, safflower oil used in all of the studies.  It’s also important to remember that safflower oil is an Omega 6. It’s very important to balance out your 6’s with Omega 3!

Could Losing Weight Really Be This Easy? Dr. Oz Thinks So!

Raspberry ketone is a natural, phenolic compound that is found in red raspberries and is responsible for the distinct aroma of raspberries, and is commonly used as a fragrance and/or food flavoring. When it’s taken as a dietary supplement, raspberry ketones have a variety of health benefits, including fast weight loss. When it comes to weight loss, results can be seen after a week or two depending on lifestyle. It has been reported by users that a loss of ten, twenty, and even over thirty pounds is really possible!

Raspberry Ketones help produce the hormone adiponectin which is a regularity hormone that tells the body that you are skinny and it begins to break down the fat cells within the body. Adiponectin will begin to produce in your body in as little as 5 days and begin to shrink the fat cells within your body. Consumers who have used Raspberry Ketone for more than 1 month have seen an increase in fat loss by as much as 140%! Raspberry Ketones help you lose weight by telling your body to use your fat for energy rather than store it in the body.

When doing research , I always look for studies that will support any information I find. While Raspberry Ketones are relatively new to us, I did find some evidence to support the claims recently made by Dr. Oz on his weekday talk show.

Here’s what Dr. Oz said:
“Raspberry ketone is probably the most effective fat burning extract known. This powerful enzyme tells your body to automatically burn fat as energy without exercising.”

“miracle in a bottle”

“tricks your body into thinking it is thin”

“works for all body types”

“never understood how powerful this was until I researched”

Fitness expert Lisa Lynn was also on this show talking about this supplement and how well it has been working for her clients.

Not only can Raspberry Ketone help promote fat loss, adiponectin is a powerful insulin lowering hormone which is good news for diabetics and metabolic syndrome.

As an excellent source of antioxidants, raspberry ketone also removes dangerous free radicals in the body. These dangerous free radicals can damage cells and DNA causing aging and disease.

Could This Really Be the Magic Pill?

While there is evidence that Raspberry Ketones will help you lose fat, it’s not going to happen overnight.  Most people saw a loss of approximately 8-10 pounds per month. The trick is, you need to start taking it and not stop.

Some of the companies we were able to stock, have combined Raspberry Ketones with some other proven fat burners & metabolism boosters in their formulas, such as:

  • African Mango– Fat burning, Appetite control, Detoxifying
  • Green Tea– Fat burning, Metabolism, Antioxidant
  • L-Carnitine– Fat burning, Energy

Any of these ingredients alone would be a great addition to a weight loss plan, but combining them into one powerful formula not only costs you less money, but keeps you from popping pills all day long!

Remember too, that CLA is a great partner to this product! CLA helps to burn off that dangerous belly fat! It has been proven safe and has many other health benefits than just as a fat burner. Stop in and ask us for more information on CLA, Raspberry Ketone, and other ways you can trim up in time for swimsuit season!
