Made from a fruit blend called Lo Han, SlimSweet(R) sweetens deliciously without significantly stimulating insulin production. SlimSweet(R) is the finest, healthiest, low-calorie sweetener available. It's great for weight loss, completely natural and safe for children and adults and anyone who wants to improve their diet significantly.
How Is TriMedica's SlimSweet(R) Different From Other Sugars & Sweeteners?
Most people don't realize that common sweeteners, such as table sugar, honey, brown sugar, high-fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners, are all high-glycemic, which means they elevate insulin and blood sugar (glucose) levels. Elevated insulin and glucose levels encourage the body to store fat and greatly increase your chances of developing serious illnesses. SlimSweet(R) differs from other sweeteners because it is low-glycemic and does not elevate insulin or blood sugar levels. SlimSweet(R) also has thermogenic properties, which means that it helps burn stored fats.
Can SlimSweet(R) Help Me Burn Fat & Lose Weight?
Because SlimSweet(R) has thermogenic properties, it can actually help your body burn stored fat; whereas, other sweeteners may actually promote fat storage in your body. A study conducted at the Institute of Physiology at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland showed that meals with an added thermogenic fruit sweetener, like SlimSweet(R), had a "significantly greater" thermogenic response than those meals with a standard glucose sweetener.
Substituting SlimSweet(R) for other sweeteners in your diet will naturally provide a low-calorie supplement that will not add unnecessary calories or fat storage elements to your diet, contributing significantly to any overall weight loss program.
Can Diabetics Use TriMedica's SlimSweet(R)?
Most diabetics can use SlimSweet(R) on the advice of their physician because SlimSweet(R) is low glycemic and does not significantly stimulate insulin production.
How Does SlimSweet(R) Taste?
TriMedica's SlimSweet(R) tastes great. SlimSweet(R) is a crystalline powder, like sugar, and dissolves easily like sugar.
What About Stevia?
Stevia is not recognized as a safe or legal sweetener in the United States by the FDA and may contain adverse high-glycemic maltodextrins.
What About Fructose?
TriMedica's SlimSweet(R) contains fewer calories per serving than fructose, a fact that is particularly important for weight loss and diabetic diets.
How Can I Use SlimSweet(R)?
You can use TriMedica's SlimSweet(R) in all beverages and foods that utilize sugar, such as coffee, tea, bread, Kool Aid(R), cakes, pies, cereal, iced tea, cookies, fresh fruit and lemonade.
Can SlimSweet(R) Cause Significantly Elevated Cholesterol?
The answer is "no." Most sugars cause significantly elevated cholesterol and triglycerides, but TriMedica's SlimSweet(R) does not. Excess carbohydrates, particularly from high-glycemic sugars, can be deposited as body fat or changed into triglycerides or blood fats, which increase the incidence of heart and blood vessel disease. However, in clinical studies using low-glycemic fruit sugar, there was no significant change in triglyceride production or cholesterol following ingestion of low-glycemic fruit sugar such as SlimSweet(R).
