EDEN PRAIRIE, MN - June 21, 2006 – TRIMSPA recently announced the introduction of its newest product, METABOSPA™, a non-Hoodia based weight loss supplement containing METABONEX™ (7-oxo DHEA). 7-oxo DHEA is a thermogenic, clinically proven ingredient, supplied by Humanetics, which promotes weight loss by increasing metabolism without the use of stimulants. .
“Time and again studies have shown that American adults are among the most overweight in the world,” said Alex Goen, CEO of TRIMSPA. “When it comes to consumer health solutions, Humanetics Corporation is well-respected and their ingredients are well developed and clinically proven. That was and is vital to us because every person’s body is different. This alliance allows us to offer consumers another weight loss option.”
METABONEX, the key ingredient, enhances the activity of three thermogenic enzymes – Glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, Malic Enzyme & Fatty Acyl CoA Oxidase – which promote the burning of body fat. In two independently conducted clinical trials, the effectiveness of METABONEX for weight loss was supported; specifically, that it promotes 3 times more weight and fat loss than diet and exercise alone. Both trials were double-blinded and placebo-controlled and have been published in peer-reviewed journals.
7-oxo DHEA is naturally found in humans and is known to decline with age, as does the body’s metabolic rate. Published studies show that 7-oxo DHEA levels drop by nearly 50% between the ages of 20 and 40, and further decline to negligible amounts by age 70. The physiological effects associated with this decline include decreased activity of fat-burning enzymes, a significant decrease in basal metabolic rate and subsequent weight gain. METABONEX, which is protected by several U.S. patents, increases these levels and induces thermogenic enzymes at multiple levels to promote caloric efficiency.
“Many people find that it’s hard to lose weight the older they become, even after they’ve reduced calories and started to exercise more,” said Scott Steil, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Humanetics Corporation. “In fact, many consumers find that they need something more to jumpstart their metabolism as they get older but are cautious about stimulant-based ingredients. METABOSPA is non-stimulant based, and provides a safe and effective weight loss option for today’s weight conscious consumer.”
About the alliance between the two industry leaders, Steil shared that Humanetics Corporation is excited to have the opportunity to work with a company like TRIMSPA who can educate a large number of consumers on the benefits and positive impact of 7-oxo DHEA on their diet and exercise program.
“TRIMSPA is certainly one of the leading and well-respected companies in the weight loss industry and we welcome the opportunity to partner with them and provide a solid foundation towards their commitment to using solid science as the driving force behind product development. METABOSPA provides consumers with a safe and highly efficacious product that will help them maximize their weight loss goals,” expressed Steil.
