Iodine (from Potassium Iodide)

The healthy functioning of the thyroid is essential to maintaining your metabolism (rate at which the body burns calories) and preventing the accumulation of body-fat. An underactive thyroid gland slows your metabolism and you therefore burn dramatically fewer calories and feel sluggish. Although Iodine makes up only a very small percentage of your body, your thyroid CANNOT function without this trace mineral. If you have too little iodine in your diet, hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) and weight gain will occur. SLIM-ELEMENTS ensure you are provided with support levels of Iodine in effort to support healthy thyroid function.

Chrome-mate™ Chromium (from Chromium Polynicotinate)

Chromium is involved in healthy glucose metabolism and helps enhance the effects of insulin. Why is this important and what does it have to do with weight-loss? Without adequate chromium in the body, insulin cannot properly interact with receptors on the surface of cells and glucose cannot be properly taken up by cells. When this happens, glucose accumulates in the blood stream preventing a fat loss state and, even worse, may potentially lead to type 2 diabetes, and/or weight-gain. WeightOFF® SLIM-ELEMENTS provides the safest most bioavailable form of chromium available in the form of Chromium Polyniconate (niacin bound chromium).

Selenium SeLECT® (L-(+) selenomethionine)

Along with iodine, selenium is a critical mineral for maintaining proper function of the thyroid gland. For the body to produce the most active form of the thyroid hormone, T3 (triiodothyronine) and enhance its conversion from the less active form, T4 (thyroxine), selenium is essential. Selenium also helps regulate the amount of T3 produced by the body helping ensure you synthesize the right level required to maintain a healthy metabolism. WeightOFF® SLIM-ELEMENTS provides the safest most bioavailable form of selenium available in the form of L-(+) selenomethionine. This source is organically bound with the active amino acid, L-methionine, which helps to enhance the bioavailability of selenium in the human body.
