ActiVit® Multivitamins—Metabolism Formula
Beachbody designed ActiVit Metabolism Formula to be safe and effective, sourced with natural vitamins, minerals, herbs, and plant extracts—and then we added extra ingredients to enhance your results from regular fitness training
This unique formulation was designed to give you maximum energy for an active lifestyle, but ActiVit Metabolism is great to take even if you aren't exercising as much as you'd like.
You can take these vitamins even if you never work out! The key is to take ActiVit every day. Aside from the daily essential vitamins you need, we chose the following ingredients because they have been shown to positively affect your metabolism and energy levels while burning off fat.*
We made some inquiries into what scientists and researchers are saying about our ingredients. We invite you to read what they said:
Green tea Green tea extract has been demonstrated to safely increase human metabolism and provide excellent antioxidant activity. Researchers have studied the effects of green tea extract on subjects and found that the number of calories used was measurably higher for participants taking green tea extract than for those taking simple caffeine, a placebo, or no supplement. In clinical trials, green tea extract has consistently been proven to be one of the safest and most validated ingredients
Pyruvate Pyurvate is a compound that occurs naturally in the body, and has been shown to have a profound effect on body fat and endurance. Research has shown that pyruvate can increase fat loss and can minimize the associated loss of lean muscle mass. (This is unusual, because we almost always lose muscle when we lose fat!) Pyruvate has even been shown to reduce fat without exercise.
Pyruvate can improve exercise performance by enhancing the transport of glucose into the muscle cell (muscles need glucose during exercise or they can more easily become fatigued). Subjects using pyruvate reported sustained energy levels without the unwanted side effects of caffeine or other stimulants.
- Is 100% safe because it is a natural product of the body's metabolism
- May decrease cholesterol in subjects on high-fat diets
- Provides unique Super Antioxidant Protection
- Seems to improve cardiac function
Alpha-lipoic acid: the metabolic antioxidant Alpha-lipoic acid is a nonvitamin coenzyme that carries out important metabolic and antioxidant functions in the body. It helps burn carbohydrates, fat, and protein while disposing of free radicals.
Vanadyl sulfate Vanadyl sulfate is a trace mineral and antioxidant. Antioxidants are beneficial because they protect against tissue damage during exercise, helping recovery and maintaining higher energy levels. Vanadyl has been shown to reduce soreness after vigorous exercise. It is being used more and more to help prevent excess LDL cholesterol (the bad kind) and triglycerides (blood fat). Vanadyl sulfate is also popular with bodybuilders because it may improve insulin action or mimic insulin in the body. Insulin helps muscle grow and can therefore help maximize muscle definition.
Thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and pantothenic acid These compounds have been found to boost the body's metabolism, helping convert fat to fuel and increasing muscle strength and tone. By enhancing metabolic energy, you can exercise longer and reduce fatigue. Also, thiamin helps to reduce the onset of lactic acid buildup, so you don't "hit the wall" during strenuous bursts of physical activity as easily. (The "burn" you sometimes feel is the onset of lactic acid.) Reducing lactic acid buildup can also decrease post-workout soreness.
Magnesium Magnesium lets you work out harder while decreasing the likelihood of cramping. It is also recommended by many doctors as a daily supplement for health of the heart. Magnesium is an essential mineral that helps to regulate the heart's neuromuscular activity and maintain normal heart rhythm. Because of this function and its nerve and muscle support, magnesium may also be helpful for fatigue, nervousness, anxiety, insomnia, depression, and muscle cramps.
Cayenne fruit This natural herb can cause dilation of blood vessels in the microcirculation. This process speeds nutrient delivery to the tissues and allows for efficient removal of metabolic waste from the muscles. By eliminating waste and delivering nutrients, muscles can function more effectively.
Chromium chelate Chromium is found in the best exercise supplements because it is natural, it helps enhance muscle tone, and it aids in the reduction of body fat. Chromium is reported to lower cholesterol and help stabilize and regulate blood sugar levels. More than 90% of Americans are believed to be chromium deficient.
Alpha-ketoglutaric acid Alpha-ketoglutaric acid plays a vital role in the Krebs cycle, the system utilized by your body to release large amounts of energy. It also contributes indirectly to the stabilization of blood glucose levels during exercise, fasting, or a very low-calorie diet. Alpha-ketoglutaric acid may be an important adjunct to proper diet and training for the athlete who desires peak performance, and may reduce the loss of lean body mass.
Choline Choline is very important in controlling fat and cholesterol buildup in the body; it prevents fat from accumulating in the liver and facilitates the movement of fats in the cells. It is also thought to help improve memory.
