Our transdermal patch is the science of appetite control.
Natural Counterweight RX® transdermal patches reduce the craving for food by blocking areas that cause a craving for food.
You unconsciously exercise appetite control with this safe, effective, drug free product.
As you wear a fresh patch every day, the natural ingredients diffuse through the skin and are carried to the sensitized sites that cause a craving for food. The Counterweight RX® Patch desensitizes those areas, diminishing the craving for food.
The patch can be worn regardless of any treatment or medication you may be taking because it is all natural and drug free.
Appetite suppression is not an overnight miracle cure. It takes hold slowly, and becomes effective in a healthy sustainable manner. You lose weight because your appetite is restored to a normal, healthy level. There is no urge or craving to overeat. You are in effect going on a diet without consciously dieting. The craving for fatty foods is particularly diminished.
There are many ways to lose weight, but most will prove disappointing. This is because we are dealing with a complex physiological/psychological number of factors. Counterweight RX® is still effective in these circumstances.
People are receptive and willing so why does obesity remain a widespread problem? :
While certain approaches work for some of the people some of the time, many will be frustrated by what seems like an infinite process. In many cases weight loss is soon followed by weight gain.
Counterweight Rx is an approach that does not depend on individual effort, motivation, or lifestyle. It works on the basis of involuntary, continuous appetite suppression. Your determination is an added plus, but on those days when it falters, Counterweight Rx does not- your craving for food is being suppressed.
The hypothalamus is an area in the brain that integrates signals coming from our gut and fat cells, telling us that we are hungry and should eat. In the past, the beta blockers used were potent drugs that blocked the receptor sites that stimulate the craving for food. The most potent of these were amphetamines and amphetamine related derivatives. These powerful central nervous system stimulant drugs are addictive and have side effects which include hypertension and insomnia so doctors are reluctant to prescribe them because of addictive problems, and a range of serious side effects.
Counterweight Rx uses a synergistic combination of natural, safe and effective beta blockers, that are effective transdermally. They diffuse into the blood stream. Oral ingestion runs the risk of even natural beta blockers breaking down by digestive enzymes.
The beta blockers in Counterweight Rx are released in a sustained manner from our clinically formulated transdermal patches; they effectively reduce appetite by blocking receptor sites. Used alone, or in conjunction with any plan, diet or lifestyle, they enhance the ability to eat less, and feel satisfied as the receptor sites in your brain are programmed to reduce the craving for excessive food. You will achieve and maintain your optimal weight by almost unconsciously eating less.
The patches contain:
5HTP-(5 hydroxytryptophan):, a naturally occurring amino acid, is the precursor to serotonin, the neurotransmitter responsible for mood elevation and a sense of satisfaction.
It aids weight loss by increasing feelings of fullness, 5-HTP counteracts hunger-inducing hormones, and works to suppress appetite helping you to lose weight.
GABA (Gamma amino butyric acid): The neuro receptor site closely associated with habitual craving is the GABAa site. Which initiates the craving. That craving is virtually negated ,when the site is occupied by GABA which acts as a competitive inhibitor by blocking the site to hormones that initiate a feeling of hunger.
Leptin: Leptin is a hormone produced in your adipose tissue (fat cells) that sends signals to your hypothalamus suggesting you are full and should stop eating. Leptin cannot be taken orally because it is destroyed during digestion.
Garcinia Cambogia: Garcinia cambogia is a natural extract that has beta blocking properties, and its effect is maximized when used in conjunction with leptin.
Vitamin B-12: B-12 delivered transdermally to your blood system is like an injection by diffusion, but much more convenient. Many people believe that B-12 shots cause weight loss. B-12 shots may help contribute to weight loss, but what they actually do is metabolize your fat and protein, assisting in weight loss. B-12 helps to stabilize your metabolism as you lose weight.
Gymnema sylvestre: is an herb that can help decrease sugar cravings. Its active compounds can help you eat fewer sugary foods, decrease sugar absorption into the blood, and even block the digestion of fats.
The formula also includes: kava-kava, ginko biloba, and piper methysicum.
Directions of Use
The Counterweight Rx transdermal patch is applied anywhere on the body above the waist, usually on the upper forearm, in an area with no hair. The patch should be worn at least 12 hours a day and should be replaced every 24 hours or when removed for any purpose. The location of the patch can be moved if needed to avoid any local irritation, but this is unlikely. Once removed do not re-use the patch.
A new patch should be worn daily for 60-90 days, then every 2nd day for 30 days, and then twice a week to ensure appetite control.
When the beta blockers start to work in several weeks, appetite suppression will become evident and fully effective after 40-60 days. After 3-6 months of use when you feel in control, use the patches only twice a week for maintenance, later use patches as required.
The patch should not be used by children under 16, pregnant women or nursing mothers.
