the slim whey™ supports appetite control and maintenance of lean body tissue, particularly when used in combination with regular exercise, to promote healthy body composition and weight management.
• synergistic ingredients to support healthy body composition and weight management
• synergistic ingredients to curb hunger and support lean body mass

Jarrow Formulas the slim whey™ combines whey protein concentrate with HCActive™ (hydroxycitric acid) from the fruit of Garcinia cambogia, stabilized as a potassium-magnesium salt. the slim whey™ supports appetite control and maintenance of lean body tissue, particularly when used in combination with regular exercise, to promote healthy body composition and weight management. Whey protein has been shown to promote greater satiety than an equal number of calories from carbohydrate.
In the mocha flavor, Coffeeberry® Whole Coffee Fruit Powder is a source of chlorogenic acids.
Protein is the primary nutrient group involved in repairing and building muscle tissues. It is also the only nutrient group that contains an appreciable amount of nitrogen. This is important since the body must be in a state of positive nitrogen balance in order for muscle growth to take place. On the flip side, negative nitrogen balance can cause the body to break down muscle tissue as a source of protein for other uses, resulting in decreased muscle mass. While any source of protein can provide protein, whey protein has some distinct advantages.
Benefits of Whey Protein
Whey is a valuable by-product of cheese manufacturing because it contains a complete amino acid profile as well as other beneficial factors such as alpha-lactalbumin, beta-lactoglobulin, glycomacropeptide, lactoferrin, serum albumin, lysozyme, and immunoglobulins A, G, and M. Whey protein also tends to provide a higher concentration of essential amino acids than other protein sources.
Typically, about 25% of the amino acids in whey are branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). BCAAs are readily oxidized as an energy source during and after stress and exercise.
Whey protein is also rich in cysteine, a precursor to the vital intracellular antioxidant glutathione (GSH). GSH is depleted by oxidative stress that occurs during exercise, immune defense, and healing. In fact, some researchers think that whey protein may help play a role in promoting immune health by providing GSH precursors and increasing levels of GSH in the tissues.
HCActive™ is a unique potassium-magnesium stabilized form of (–)-hydroxycitric acid (HCA) that is protected by nine issued US Patents and multiple pending patents. It is used for weight loss and other purposes and is an extract of the active component of Garcinia cambogia, one of several closely related Garcinia species from the plant family known as Guttiferae. The organic acid known as (–)-hydroxycitric acid, i.e., HCA, is the primary acid found in the fruit and the rinds of G. cambogia, G. atroviridis and G. indica. In G. cambogia, from 10 to (rarely) 30% of the weight of the dried pericarp (rind) is HCA.
Mechanisms of Action
HCA first was studied in relation to weight gain, especially weight gain from the consumption of too many calories from carbohydrates.
Whenever the rate of cellular carbohydrate availability (as glucose via glycolysis) exceeds energy requirements and/or the capacity to produce and store glycogen, the resulting acetyl-CoA units derived from carbohydrates are turned into fatty acids and cholesterol. HCA inhibits the synthesis of fat from carbohydrates by inhibiting the enzyme ATP:citrate-lyase.
The process of making fat from carbohydrate slows or even significantly inhibits the ability to oxidize stored fats for energy. In contrast, HCA disinhibits the ability to use fats for fuel.
In athletes, HCA may improve the rate of metabolism of fatty acids for energy within less than a week. In untrained men and women, HCA also increases the rate of fatty acid oxidation during moderate exercise.
Athletes and weekend warriors alike are benefitted by the ability of HCA to speed recovery after workouts and increase glycogen stores.
HCActive™ in 3 different pilot clinical trials using different forms of delivery has demonstrated weight loss benefits ranging from approximately a pound per week to greater than three pounds per week in morbidly obese test subjects. Various HCA salts have been clinically tested for weight loss and weight loss in the more successful studies usually averaged a little more than one pound a week.
However, the weight loss results have varied widely from study-to-study with calcium- and potassium-calcium-based HCA salts and even with the same HCA salt in different studies. Major authorities blame the poor bioavailability of commercial calcium and potassium-calcium HCA salts for these failings.
