calories a day."

Zemel also stressed that customers who take more than two pills a day will only be wasting moneynot burning more calories.

NuShape consists of the amino acid leucine, found in foods like fish, soybeans, beef and lentils, and vitamin B6, found in foods such as bread, meat, poultry, eggs and bananas. The vitamin inhibits fat storage. When combined with leucine, it stimulates fat oxidation in the muscle. The specific ratio of the two allows for fat to be transferred to the muscle to be burned.

The second supplement, NuControl, helps promote healthy blood sugar levels. It works by converging on the same metabolic pathway as the anti-aging nutrient resveratrol. Zemel explained the challenge with resveratrol is that you need an exorbitant amount to reap the benefits. By performing molecular, cellular and animal studies, as well as human clinical trials, Zemel discovered a design that unlocks resveratrol's benefits by adding other nutrients, which lowers the needed concentration.

"Insulin is, of course, a very important hormone, but you would like to operate at low levels of insulin," said Zemel. "As you gain weight, you become less insulin sensitive, and it takes more insulin to produce normal blood sugar control. NuControl helps address this issue by promoting the body's natural ability to metabolize sugar more effectively. In fact, initial in vivo research showed the NuControl blend of leucine and resveratrol improved insulin sensitivity levels in mice by 40 to 50 percent."

Zemel said he aims to shape the future of pharmaceuticals through natural therapies that are based on sound science and are just as effective as traditional solutions, with no side effects. These two products are the first in a line to be released. The next product will tackle cardiovascular health.
