Policosanol

Policosanol is a natural type of plant wax that is use in nutritional supplements because it is believe to lower the “bad” cholesterol which is known as Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) and help increase the level of good cholesterol called High Density Lipoprotein (HDL). Cardiologists and researchers believe that having a higher level of HDL will help prevent the formation of atherosclerosis, which are plaques that build up on the heart arteries that reduces the passage of oxygenated blood into the heart.

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)

The Alpha Lipoic Acid or ALA is classified as an organosulfur compound that is extracted from octonoid acid. This compound is incorporated into weight loss supplements because its chemical properties induce the human metabolism to breakdown body fats. ALA comes in two forms, R-form and S-form. The R-form of ALA can be found in nature and the human body can produce it but in very small quantities. The S-form does not exists naturally but it was successfully synthesized back in the 1950. The amount of R-ALA that we obtain from the food we consume on the daily basis is generally not enough to induce high rate of fat breakdown. Therefore this compound must be synthesized so that sufficient quantity can be added on the supplements in able for it to be effective.

Green Tea Flavanols

The flavanol on Green Tea has made the extract from this popular hot drink very attractive throughout the weight loss supplement industries. Its been less than twenty years that scientists realized and appreciate the effects of flavanol to the human body. Researches discovered that flavanol consists of Epigallocatechin gallate or EGCG which act as a potent antioxidant against free radicals that are created from human metabolism. The EGCG neutralizes free roaming radicals and prevent it from causing point mutations on body cells that can eventually result into cancer formation.

Aged Garlic Extract

Age garlic extract is also one of the important ingredients that were included in PAGG stack because it help suppresses appetite and it has special compound called Allicin. Aged garlic has been used in many weight loss supplements for many decades now because it reduce the person’s urge to crave for food and at the same time it also enhances the person’s metabolism which help breakdown stored body fats. Additionally, garlic extract also has allicin, a compound that directs consumed carbohydrates towards the skeletal muscles instead of getting stored in the body as fat.

Biotin

Biotin is a Co-enzyme and it is classified as a water-soluble B-complex vitamin. This compound consists of two amino acids that include valine and isoleucine which are both attached to fatty acids. Biotin is also incorporated into PAGG Stack because it an enzyme that plays an important role in human metabolic pathway during gluconeogenesis. During this metabolic process, Biotin induces the body to produce glucose from substrates such as glucogenic amino acids, glycerol, and lactate to produce glucose in which the body can utilize for energy.
