Trim your tummy to look and feel good
WHEN it comes to measuring good health, the body mass index may be a less accurate indicator than you think.
Your waistline could be a more precise way to size up your health, according to recent research.
For Asians, a waistline of more than 80cm for women and 94cm for men may point to a higher risk of developing life-threatening diseases, such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
In other words, shrinking your waistline not only helps you fit into that snug pair of jeans, but also gives you a healthier body.
Enter Natural Pharma's 30days Waistline, which can help as part of an overall size-down programme that also involves dieting and exercise.
It is part of the 30days slimming line, which includes 30days Hips, Buttocks & Thighs, a product aimed at reducing fat in those problem areas, and 30days Anti-Cellulite Lotion.
The patented 30days formula combines 100 per cent natural herbal extracts with beta glucans and minerals to support digestion and internal purification.
Beta glucans are known to help reduce fat accumulation, while other ingredients like artichoke extract and dandelion root can aid in breaking down fat and supporting digestion.
In 2012, a 30-day trial involving 60 participants was conducted, in which half of them were given 30days Waistline, and the other half, placebos. Their daily routines remained unchanged.
Those who had taken 30days Waistline lost an average of 1.8cm around their waists, while those who had taken placebos experienced almost no change.
This study appeared in the publication NutraCos, which features trend articles and news from the nutraceuticals, health food and supplements sector.
For optimal results, use the 30days slimming range together with a balanced diet and regular exercise.
The 30days range can be found at selected Guardian and Watsons stores, and all John Little stores.
Both 30days Waistline and 30days Hips, Buttocks & Thighs are priced at $108 each, while 30days Anti-Cellulite Lotion costs $78.
