Synetrim® CQ: A Menopause Secret Weapon

Low Estrogen Means a Slower Metabolism

Menopause weight change is something that can make even your most valiant exercise efforts a drudgery. It all starts with estrogen: as your ovaries stop producing it, your muscle mass begins to decrease, and because muscle burns more calories than fat, less muscle means fewer calories burned.1Hence: a slower metabolism. But the good news is that menopausal women are not alone; not when they have the secret weapon, Synetrim CQ.

The Science Behind Synetrim CQ

Synetrim CQ, derived from Cissus quadrangularis (CQ) comes from the vine of the veldt grape, an indigenous plant of Africa and Asia. Scientists had noticed it contained weight management properties*, but until recently there were not many studies done.

Synetrim CQ on Weight Management

In 2008, Dr. Julius Oben focused on specific properties derived from the stems and leaves of this grape. His studies showed a powerful ability to reduce the absorption of dietary fat, carbohydrates and starch-derived sugar by blocking the activity of the fat digesting enzyme lipase.*2 This means Synetrim CQ lowered the caloric contribution, ultimately lowering overall calorie intake.*3 In his latest study on Synetrim CQ, Dr. Oben concluded that it demonstrated benefits for weight management.* Music for a menopausal woman’s ears!

Synetrim CQ and Estroven

What makes Synetrim CQ stand out as the go-to for menopause weight management is its ability to enhance serotonin levels.* Menopausal women tend to struggle with an imbalance of serotonin, causing mood instability and occasionally, stress eating. This is why Estroven Weight Management specifically includes the safe, drug-free properties of Synetrim CQ, to help stabilize serotonin levels and contribute to the weight management goals every menopausal woman sets.*

So the next time you think of resorting to harmful chemicals for a quick-fix weight management solution, think about the naturally-sourced Synetrim CQ in Estroven Weight Management.*
