Nutraceuticals International Group is the exclusive supplier for the newest concept in weight management: Slimpro.

Nutraceuticals International Group is the exclusive supplier for the newest concept in weight management. Slimpro, which is patent-pending, is a fish peptide derived from blue whiting fish that is fortified with branched-chain amino acids. According to the company, Slimpro improves and amplifies a natural physiological mechanism already occurring during the digestion process. Naturally, ingestion of foods, especially food protein, induces production of intestinal hormones called satiating hormones. Among these, cholecystokinin (CCK) and glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) are well known for their satiating properties and their involvement in the regulation of food intake. These hormones send a signal proportional to their concentration to the brain indicating the end of the meal. The second effect is to delay hunger for the next meal. This direct action on the hunger process targets many different subjects for weight control, including individuals who simply want to manage their weight and stop snacking.
