Eroved CB-7 Review
Eroved CB-7 contains Chromium and Glucomannan, which is consider to be advantageous for weight loss. Chromium may aid in metabolism while Glucomannan is a water soluble dietary fiber that may provide a feeling of fullness.
Eroved CB-7 also contains another key ingredient, Phase 2 White Kidney Bean Extract, which is a commonly used carb blocker.
Ingredients: (Serving Size: 4 Capsules)
|Chromium (as chromium polynicotinate)||150mcg|
|White kidney bean extract (Phase 2)||1250mg|
|Gymnema sylvestre 75% extract||400mg|

Chromium is an essential mineral that may stabilize blood sugar levels.
White Kidney Bean Extract (Phase 2)
White Kidney Beans have been used in traditional medicine systems. The only scientifically verified benefit of white kidney bean seeds is the ability of white kidney beans to act as a “starch blocker” – a blocker of the alpha-amylase enzyme.
Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fiber that’s derived from the Konjac root (Amorphophallus konjac). Because glucomannan is found in negligible amounts in food, supplementation is necessary. Because it is a fiber, glucomannan can assist with weight loss and healthy weight maintenance by expanding in the stomach and absorbing fats. Absorbed fats are eliminated from the body and do not undergo digestion, thus nullifying their caloric effect. Also, glucomannan occupies space in the stomach and provides feelings of fullness. You’ll eat less when this happens, and this will direct your body to tap into body fat stores for energy. Simply, you’ll have a better chance of burning fat and losing weight when you use glucomannan.
In exactly two 8-week scientific studies in which all groups followed a diet and exercise plan, subjects specifically using the major ingredients in Smart Burn (Garcinia cambogia extract, chromium polynicotinate, and Gymnema sylvestre extract) lost, on average, significantly more weight than subjects who were actually using a placebo (14.99 vs. 3.06 lbs. and 12.54 vs. 3.53 lbs.). These actual clinical studies show how quickly you can actually lose up to 450% the weight than regular diet and exercise alone.
R-Alpha Lipoic Acid
R-lipoic acid is the biologically active form of alpha lipoic acid. It has been called the mitochondrial antioxidant because it is a key component of mitochondrial dehydrogenase complexes. R-lipoic acid is directly involved in cell metabolism and redox states. R-lipoic acid crosses the blood brain barrier, and helps regulate neuronal calcium homeostasis, scavenges a variety of reactive oxygen species (ROS) while recycling vitamins C, E and glutathione. R-lipoic acid has been shown to regulate pro-inflammatory cytokines, and alter the expression of “toxic genes”. R-lipoic acid has been used to treat diabetes and has been recommended as a “neuroprotective agent”
If it is naturally occurring within our bodies, then why do we need to take lipoic acid as a supplement? There are at least four good reasons. First, as we age, our bodies lose the ability to synthesize enough Lipoic acid, right at the time when we most need it. Secondly, you cannot get sufficient quantities from your foods. Third, the body produces small amounts of R-Lipoic acid for metabolism that may not be of sufficient quantity to neutralize rising free radical concentrations. Fourth, a minimum amount is necessary for normal metabolic processes. Taking larger amounts, can have pronounced therapeutic effects.
Banaba is a medicinal plant that grows in India, Southeast Asia and the Philippines. Traditional uses include brewing tea from the leaves as a treatment for diabetes and hyperglycemia (elevated blood sugar). The hypoglycemic (blood sugar lowering) effect of banaba leaf extract is similar to that of insulin – which induces glucose transport from the blood into body cells.
Banaba leaf extract contains a triterpenoid compound known as corosolic acid – which has actions in stimulating glucose transport into cells. As such, banaba plays a role in regulating levels of blood sugar and insulin in the blood. For some people, fluctuations in blood sugar and insulin are related to appetite, hunger and various food cravings – particularly craving for carbohydrates such as bread and sweets. By keeping blood sugar and insulin levels in check, banaba may be an effective supplement for promoting weight loss in certain individuals.
The blood sugar regulating properties of banaba have been demonstrated in cell culture, animal and human studies. In isolated cells, the active ingredient in banaba extract, corosolic acid, is known to stimulate glucose uptake. In diabetic mice, rats and rabbits, banaba feeding reduces elevated blood sugar and insulin levels to normal. In humans with type II diabetes, banaba extract, at a dose of 16-48mg per day for 4-8 weeks, has been shown to be effective in reducing blood sugar levels (5%-30% reduction) and maintaining tighter control of blood sugar fluctuations. An interesting “side-effect” of tighter control of blood sugar and insulin levels is a significant tendency of banaba to promote weight loss (an average of 2-4 lbs. per month) – without significant dietary alterations. It is likely that modulation of glucose and insulin levels reduces total caloric intake somewhat and encourages moderate weight loss.
Human and animal studies indicate vanadium can potentially help stabilize blood sugar levels and may help the efficiency of glycogen storage in the liver and muscle tissue.
