Losing weight can be a huge struggle. But FIT can help you finally win the battle of the bulge. Being overweight increases your chances for health problems and decreases your ability to do things. Overcoming it isn’t easy, but using FIT as part of your weight control program can help.
Fits perfectly with your weight control program.
To reduce your weight, you have to eat less and move more. But FIT can also help. If you take FIT gels before two meals, you may increase the effectiveness of your weight control program. That’s because it contains an active ingredient called hydroxycitric acid (HCA) that comes from the fruit and rind of Garcinia cambogia.
Prevent your body from storing unused carbohydrates
Clinical studies have shown that HCA prevents your body from storing unused carbohydrates and inhibits fat production. In other words, it helps you win the battle between how many calories you consume and how many calories you burn. Whenever you win this battle, you lose weight.
Eat less, move more, and lose weight
Another benefit of HCA is that it is a mild appetite suppressant. If taken 30-60 minutes before a meal, it can help you eat less. If you eat less and move more, you can win the battle of the bulge. And few things benefit your health more than losing those extra pounds. Studies show that weight loss helps maintain healthy blood pressure, improves sleep, and can add years to a person’s life.

Some Facts about the Ingredients in FIT
The primary active ingredient in Agel FIT is Super CitriMax®. It is the patent pending form hydroxycitric acid (HCA) which comes from the extract of the fruit and rind of the Asian fruit called Garcinia cambogia.
HCA has been shown in clinical trials to decrease body weight by reducing appetite, inhibiting fat synthesis, and increasing fat metabolism, without artificial stimulation of the central nervous system. The HCA in Super CitriMax® is bound to calcium and potassium, which maximizes its solubility, thereby, increasing its bioavailability. Research has shown that HCA potency, bioavailability, timing of ingestion, and dosage are the essential requirements for optimal results. In addition, the safety of Super CitriMax® has been confirmed in recently published studies.
HCA has been found to produce multiple physiological effects. One of these effects is appetite suppression. Recent clinical studies show that Super CitriMax® increases levels of serotonin (5-HT) by blocking its re-uptake in the brain. This neurotransmitter has been found to play a vital role in a wide range of behavioral functions in the body, including mood, sleep and appetite control. Studies show that serotonin levels are closely related to eating behavior and body weight. There is a significant correlation between increased plasma levels of serotonin and decreased food intake, reduced weight gain and increased energy expenditure. In addition to its effect on appetite, increased serotonin levels may also play a beneficial role in helping overweight people face some of the related emotional issues, including binge-eating and depression.
HCA also inhibits the production of fatty acids by inhibiting the biochemical action of an intra cellular enzyme called ATP citrate lyase. ATP citrate lyase controls the biosynthesis of cellular Acetyl CoA (a carbohydrate-derived building block for fatty acids). Acetyl CoA is originally synthesized in the cellular mitochondria, but since the mitochondrial membrane is impermeable to Acetyl CoA, it is converted into hydroxycitrate, pumped across the mitochondrial membrane then reconverted from hydroxycitrate into Acetyl CoA and Oxaloacetate via ATP citrate lyase. However, in the presence of adequate HCA, ATP citrate lyase is deactivated, thereby blocking the synthesis of fatty acids from carbohydrates and their subsequent storage in the liver. This also prompts biochemical changes in the liver that promote fat burning. By switching this enzyme off, HCA effectively blocks the conversion of starch and sugary foods into fat, and consequently, HCA is known as a lipogenesis (lipo — fat, genesis — creation) inhibitor. In other words, with Super CitriMax®, fatty acid synthesis is switched off.
Super CitriMax® has also been found to help maintain existing normal cholesterol levels.
There are many weight management products on the market that use HCA as the active ingredient. However, most of them do not use Super CitriMax®. This patent pending form of HCA is bound to the minerals calcium and potassium. Consequently, the HCA is virtually 100% soluble, and therefore more bioavailable than regular calcium-based HCA ingredients. Super CitriMax® also contains 20% more HCA than ordinary HCA products. In its new formulation, Super CitriMax® has been shown to be significantly more effective as a weight management aid than previous formulations of HCA.
Super CitriMax® in and of itself is a well-proven weight management aid. However, now that it is formulated as an integral part of Agel FIT, its true potential will be realized.
Agel FIT is a wonderful component of the initial line-up of Agel products. This weight management aid will be a huge help to those who struggle with “the battle of the bulge.” And, because it is formulated as a gel preparation, it can easily be taken when it is most effective (see below).
We all know that being overweight is a common, frustrating problem for people in all parts of the world, and it would be wonderful if there were a magic pill that would melt away the extra pounds without any physical effort. Unfortunately, there is no “magic bullet”. Let’s face it. Losing weight involves a simple equation; the calories expended must exceed those that are consumed. In other words, we have to ’eat a little less’ and ’move a little more’. Now, this equation sounds easy, but the execution of a reasonable diet combined with a regular exercise program maintained over the long-term is sometimes not an easy process. Therefore, many people trying to lose weight will benefit from supplemental support as they face the inevitable obstacles along the way.
So let’s talk about Agel FIT. This great tasting gel can help play a role in this frustrating struggle, without the harmful effects of stimulants. The active ingredient in Agel FIT is a well studied, patent pending form of HCA (hydroxycitric acid), called Super CitriMax™. It comes from the extract of the fruit and rind of Garcinia cambogia, and it has been shown in clinical trials to decrease body weight by reducing appetite and inhibiting fat synthesis without stimulating the central nervous system. There are other products on the market that use HCA for weight management, but not all of them contain Super CitriMax™. What makes this form of HCA so good is that it is bound to calcium and potassium, which maximizes its solubility, thereby, increasing its bioavailability. Add that to the fact that it is now suspended in a gel formulation and we have the makings of an awesome weight management aid.
Research has shown that HCA potency, bioavailability, timing of ingestion, and dosage are the essential requirements for optimal results. According to the studies, the Super CitriMax™ works best if it is ingested 30 to 60 minutes prior to eating meals, three times each day. This will allow time for the absorption of the HCA and suppression of appetite. With the convenience of a gel pack, timing the ingestion of this product in the 30 to 60 minute window will be a breeze.
The revolutionary gel technology used to deliver this formulation not only improves the availability of Super CitriMax™, but also offers a convenience factor that can maximize the timing of its ingestion. Although nothing can replace a healthy diet and regular physical activity, Agel FIT will be an excellent addition to a successful weight management program.
