To help, there is products like Top Shape SciTec Nutrition claiming to help you lose weight and fat mass without touching the muscle mass to help you get a slimmer and toned look. But does it really work? Is it safe? We take a look below.
Glucomannan, the main ingredient of Top Shape, is a natural fibre that becomes a gel and forms a lining in the stomach when taken in with large quantities of water. Because the stomach is full of this gelatinous substance, it feels full and can prevent the users from ingesting too many calories. Aside from its appetite-suppressing properties, glucomannan is thought to help reduce cholesterol.
Glucomannan is a natural dietary fibre but it can still cause some mild side effects such as gas, bloating, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhoea.
There is a big difference in prices depending on where you are buying from. The SciTec Direct website sells the products for £16.95 but American customers buying from Amazon have to disburse a hefty $108.00 to buy from Amazon.
By minimising caloric intake and reducing the storage of fats, Top Shape SciTec Nutrition may help users lose weight but it doesn’t mean that the results will last; you could probably get the same result by following a diet plan without pills. The side effects can also be very unpleasant, but the main problem is the absence of money-back guarantee… Most companies confident with the result of their product will offer a guarantee but it is not the case here. For these reasons, we have to reject Top Shape SciTec Nutrition.
Manufactured by the European company Scitec Nutrition, Top Shape is the latest of their weight-loss products. The brand is known for their line of dietary supplements, both for athletes and dieters. They are the creator of some well-known products such as Big Bang 3.0, Balanced Recovery and Hot Blood. Top Shape is slightly different as it contains only one ingredient and it focused on weight loss and appetite control.
Each capsule of Top Shape SciTec Nutrition contains 500 mg of glucomannan. Typically administered before meals, this soluble fibre gorge itself with water and forms a gelatinous substance in the stomach. By sticking to the stomach lining, it makes the users feel full faster thus reducing caloric intake. It can help prevent overeating and may help some people stick with a diet reduced in calories but it doesn’t have any fat burning properties.
For weight loss, take two capsules three times a day before meals. Drink plenty of water to obtain the full effect and ensure the capsules reach the stomach.
For cholesterol management, take two capsules, four times a day.
It will obviously be more effective when paired with an energy-restricted diet. Feeling full quicker will also make maintaining a diet lower in calories easier, which may lead to weight loss. There has been a few studies regarding the effects and benefits of glucomannan and it does look promising. SciTec Nutrition took advantage of this and created Top Shape.
Top Shape SciTec Nutrition can be used for weight loss but also to help cholesterol levels management. People looking at managing their cholesterol will need to take eight capsules a day instead of the six required for weight loss. It is always preferable to consult a doctor before starting this treatment, to ensure there will be no interactions with your current medication.
Top Shape SciTec Nutrition claims to help users lose weight […]
[…] in the context of an energy-restricted diet when administered as a pre-load before meals, and that the mechanism by which Glucomannan could exert the claimed effect is established: this soluble-type of fiber forms a viscous, gel-like mass in the stomach when hydrated, and this “mass effect” could delay gastric emptying and induce satiety leading to a decrease in subsequent energy intake. Therefore the conclusion is that a cause and effect relationship can be established between the consumption of Glucomannan and the reduction of body weight in the context of an energy-restricted diet.
When ingested before meals, it could lead to a feeling of satiety and fullness which may cause the users to eat less so it could help weight loss, in the context of a calorie-reduced diet. Similar result can be achieved without the help of a supplement.
Other ingredients include gelatin, titanium dioxide, colour, microcrystalline cellulose and magnesium sterate.
