In today's world, there is nothing more important and precious than having good health. To maintain a healthy body, one needs to balance exercising and consuming a nutritious diet. Burning body fat by just doing regular exercise and not working on the diet plan might be difficult.
Choose foods that taste good but are also suitable for you, and practice portion control. You can opt for yogurt instead of mayonnaise in salads and bake your chicken instead of deep-frying it. The options are endless, and there is no room for excuses.
Overeating (too many calories in) and lack of physical activity (too few calories out) is the simplest explanation to weight gain. However, research also shows that a diet high in simple carbohydrates is a leading contributor for weight gain. 1
So, how does the body use carbohydrates?
- Carbohydrates are consumed via rice, bread, etc.
- Digestive enzymes break down these carbohydrates into glucose, which enters the blood.
- Cells absorb glucose and produce energy.
- Excess un-used glucose is stored in the liver and muscles as glycogen.
- The liver converts excess glycogen to fats.
- This fat gets transferred to adipose tissue, mainly in belly and thighs, for storage.
One of the healthy and recommended ways to manage weight is by combining exercise and a healthy diet with good, natural supplements.
But not all weight loss supplements are equal. The nature of your body and the ingredients used in the supplements are factors that dictate how well the supplements work for you.
Scientists have long known that cinnamon is a metabolic powerhouse that can help prevent blood-sugar spikes and protect against insulin resistance. How exactly Cinnamon helps these metabolic issues has been debated. However, one possible pathway was discovered by the scientists at Aberdeen University’s Rowett Institute. They have found that Ceylon Cinnamon extracts can help your body absorb fast digesting carbohydrates similar to healthier low glycemic carbohydrates.2
Clinical studies conducted by other researchers have shown that it could be the polyphenols contained in Cinnamon that acts to inhibit carbohydrate metabolizing enzymes, thereby slowing digestion, essentially helping your body process carbohydrates more healthily.3 4
Now for the first time in Sri Lanka, a nutraceutical brand called SaaraLife has developed a 100% Ceylon Cinnamon supplement, standardised to 30% polyphenols. This is the first product of its nature that has been standardised, thereby ensuring each capsule provides you with the same amount of active compound.
It reduces the absorption of sugars and starches after meals and helps with your weight management goals by accelerating your results from exercise and diet.

Dietary supplements do not face the same scrutiny as drugs approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), so their safety is not always fully understood. Before taking any supplement for weight loss, it is best to talk with a doctor or other healthcare professional. The best bet for people trying to lose weight is to reduce portion size, eat lean protein and veggies, and get regular exercise.
We understand that, even with a healthy diet and regular exercise, some need a little extra help maintaining nutritional body composition. Our targeted selection of diet and weight-management products can help - with quality ingredients, many of which are backed by clinical research. We keep up with the latest research on nutritional weight management to ensure you’re always getting a contemporary formulation with natural ingredients.
