GLX-4T is scientifically formulated to assist with fat and glucose metabolism through multiple biological pathways. The ingredients in GLX-4T have been shown in clinical studies to support natural thyroid hormone production, fat oxidation transcription, glucose metabolism, mitochondrial energy production, appetite regulation, and the activation of brown adipose tissue (BAT) for enhanced metabolic efficiency.
GLX-4 just received a major upgrade!
- Fat & Glucose Metabolism Support
- Potent SHU Thermogenic Blend
- Stimulant-Free Appetite Control
- Natural Thyroid Support
The original GLX-4 launched in December 2010 and was a bestselling dietary supplement for over three consecutive years. During the latter part of those three years, we identified and researched ingredients that wouldn't just amplify the metabolic potential of GLX-4, but when added in very specific doses, would create a potent synergy that would be absolutely defining in metabolic efficiency. We named this new version GLX-4T.Caffeine-free metabolism support
Strong scientific evidence continues to support GLX-4T's non-caffeinated approach toward optimal metabolism. GLX-4T's ingredients assist the body's natural ability to oxidize, or "burn", body fat through various biological pathways. For example, Tetradecylthioacetic Acid, a 3-thia non-β-oxidizable modified fatty acid and pan-peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) ligand, has been shown in numerous clinical studies to efficiently activate specific PPAR receptors responsible for increasing fatty acid oxidation, lowering the concentration of blood lipids, improving insulin sensitivity, and reducing the additional storage of body fat. Other ingredients in GLX-4T promote the activation of brown adipose tissue (BAT), which has been shown to increase metabolic efficiency. This is all accomplished without the use of caffeine or other potentially harmful stimulants.Natural Appetite Control
Let's face it, our appetite can be our worst enemy, and controlling it is often a challenge. Appetite-control supplements are everywhere, but most products never live up to the hype. Well, GLX-4T may provide the solution once and for all, in fact, we are so proud of this accomplishment that we've added the "T" (stands for "thermic") to the name GLX-4. Scientific studies have supported the use of foods with high heat-units, such as cayenne pepper, to help regulate and control the appetite. GLX-4T contains cayenne pepper powder (40,000 Scoville Heat Units) and black pepper extract (100,000 Scoville Heat Units). However, the amount of heat necessary for appetite control can be unpleasant for some, so we've included a very novel delivery system that helps shuttle these ingredients to their intended target without the potentially-unpleasant taste of heat.All-natural thyroid support
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in your neck located just above the collarbone. This endocrine gland makes thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) hormones that help regulate your metabolism (the conversion of food to energy). Millions of people in the U.S. have thyroid diseases. Hypothyroidism is a far more common type of thyroid disease in which your body creates energy more slowly than normal. Hyprothyroidism can cause you to feel fatigued, gain weight, and lead to other health issues.
Iodine is an essential chemical element that the body does not produce on its own. Typically, there's very little iodine in food which makes it necessary to consume either iodine rich substances, like iodized salt, or nutritional supplements that contain iodine. Iodine deficiency is a common world health problem which can lead to numerous health issues. Tyrosine is an amino acid, a building block to protein. Iodine and Tyrosine are required in conjunction to make T4 and T3 thyroid hormones, which is why GLX-4T combines these two micro-nutrients. GLX-4T includes a healthy dose of iodine (from kelp) and L-Tyrosine to help reduce stress on the thyroid gland and maintain healthy thyroid hormone levels.Ingredient Integrity for Maximum Absorption & Utilization
It's not how much you consume, it's how much your body can absorb and utilize. In the nutraceutical world this concept applies to every powder, capsule or tablet you consume. The destructive force of the stomach has always been an obstacle for pharmaceutical companies, and the nutraceutical industry is no exception.
Provata Bioactives employs DRcaps® for our capsulized products. DRcaps® are made from hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) and disintegrate more slowly than conventional HPMC or gelatin capsules, helping protect ingredients in the capsules after swallowing from early activation caused by stomach acid, without adding synthetic chemicals, solvents, or other coating ingredients. In vitro studies show the capsule contents are protected for at least 30 minutes at a gastric pH of 1.2 and release fully at an intestinal pH of 6.8. This helps to ensure that our critical ingredients maintain their full potency. DRcaps® are kosher and vegetarian certified and manufactured in accordance with cGMP guidelines.
