Life Extension launches AMPK Metabolic Activator

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Dec. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- If you didn't know, belly fat can be hazardous to your health. Certain types of fat create more health concerns than others, and abdominal fat can be one of the worst offenders.

Life Extension®, one of the dietary supplement industry's foremost research and product development companies, has introduced AMPK Metabolic Activator that combines the citrus flavonoid hesperidin with ActivAMP® G. pentaphyllum extract, two natural ingredients that safely trigger AMPK, and in effect informs this unique enzyme to start burning unwanted fat, particularly around the abdomen.

AMPK is an enzyme found in every cell in the body. But the natural, age-related decline in AMPK is a major cause of unwanted abdominal fat. And with studies showing that increasing AMPK activity can encourage cells to stop storing fat and start burning it for energy, Life Extension created AMPK Metabolic Activator.

"You're only as healthy as your gut, plus, belly fat is more than unsightly," says Michael A. Smith, M.D., senior health scientist and spokesperson for Life Extension in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

"And belly fat can speed up natural aspects of the aging process throughout the body, because abdominal fat can create compounds that can cause inflammation and oxidative stress," says Dr. Smith.

In addition to reducing abdominal fat and activating AMPK, hesperidin helps inhibit circulating hsCRP levels, a major inflammatory factor and helps maintain already-healthy cholesterol levels and promotes healthy vascular function.

Suggested retail price for 30 vegetarian tablets of AMPK Metabolic Activator is $38. For special pricing call 800-540-4440 or visit
