Important steps to physical fitness
include eating the right foods and then ensuring that
those foods are properly digested. The next step,
metabolism, is also crucial, since it determines whether
the nutrients we derive from our foods are stored as fat
or are put to good use for energy production.
Metabolism is a series of complex
physical and chemical processes which occur within the
living cell or organism and are necessary for the
maintenance of life. In metabolism, some substances are
broken down to yield energy for vital processes, while
other substances necessary for life are synthesized. Royal
5 Metabolism Formula includes ingredients shown to enhance
metabolism. In particular, these important nutrients help
the body digest fat, maintain blood sugar levels, and help
support beneficial cholesterol levels.
Don’t Store Fat, Digest It!
Fat has been viewed as the enemy. Yet, many people have
restricted their fat intake and still have high
cholesterol or have trouble losing weight. The problem is
not fat itself, but whether the fat is digested. Fat is
needed in the body, yet if not digested and properly
metabolized, fat may accumulate in the tissues, arteries,
blood vessels and circulate in the bloodstream.
Processed fat (any fat that has been
heated) is devoid of lipase, the enzyme that breaks down
that fat into glycerol and useable fatty acids. The body
has a limited supply of lipase; but as more and more
enzyme-deficient fat is consumed, that supply is depleted
and the body is left unable to properly break down fat.
The metabolism of fat is an important factor in
maintaining your ideal weight.
Unlike fat blockers on the market,
lipase does not interfere with the body’s natural
processes. Instead of blocking fat and keeping it from
doing its job, the lipase in RBC’s Royal 5 Metabolism
Formula allows fat to be digested and put to good use.
Count on Chromium!
Diets high in fat and refined sugar seriously deplete the
body’s chromium supply. Chromium is an important
nutrient for the heart. It is responsible for the
structural and functional integrity of the cardiovascular
system. Chromium deficiency jeopardizes the body’s
ability to properly metabolize sugar and, therefore, to
maintain normal blood sugar levels. The body relies on
insulin – which can’t work without chromium – for
energy, to utilize sugars & for burning fat.
Again, the culprit is diet and
lifestyle. Many Americans are chromium deficient because
of the lack of chromium in our soil and water supply and
because of diets high in empty foods such as refined white
sugar, flour and processed fats.
The chromium included in Royal 5
Metabolism Formula is safe and highly absorbable. This
patented, amino acid chelate form of chromium is absorbed
50% better than any form on the market today, without
harmful side effects.
Tocotrienols, Selenium and
Tocotrienols are a form of vitamin E with an unsaturated
side chain, rather than a saturated side-chain of the more
common tocopherols. The tocotrienol in Royal 5 is from
palm fruit. Tocotrienols have demonstrated strong
antioxidant potential. They also help the body metabolize
cholesterol, strengthen capillary walls and protect red
Selenium and vitamin E work
synergistically. Both nutrients work together to benefit
the function of the heart muscle. Selenium is frequently
deficient, particularly in diets high in fat and sugar.
Royal 5 Metabolism Formula contains the patented amino
acid complex form of selenium.
Garlic rounds out our formula of
heart-healthy ingredients. It helps in maintaining blood
vessels and supports healthy cholesterol levels.
The nutrients in Royal 5 Metabolism Formula are
biologically available because of Royal BodyCare’s
unique Flanagan Microcluster Technology ® delivery
system. Utilizing Flanagan
Microclusters ® and chelated amino acids, this
delivery system transports nutrients directly into the
cells. A full spectrum of digestive enzymes and a specific
combination of chelated minerals, patented by Albion,
promotes optimum digestion and absorption of vital
