Obesity and overweight are growing epidemics for much of the civilized world, leading to chronic diseases commonly associated with this health condition, such as cardiovascular issues, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, and potentially cancer. Preventing or reversing this debilitating condition has been the focus among complementary and alternative medicines, particularly within the nutraceutical and functional food industries. Many herbal products make claims toward weight loss and weight management, yet scientific research is scanty for these products at best. Researching and reviewing available scientific evidence prior to formulating novel products is ideal to insure the safety and efficacy of natural products.
When formulating Burn + Control Coffee, Javita International made extensive use of available research to confirm their own findings that Burn + Control Coffee is not only safe at the recommended dosages, but that it is highly effective for supporting the body in healthy weight management. It targets multiple functions in the weight management system of the body, including but not limited to increased energy, appetite suppression, and a reduction in fat cell formation. In addition to the functionality of this product for weight management, anecdotal evidence from consumers affirms that due to the taste and ease of use of the product, compliance is relatively easy, and thus the results may be enhanced over supplement-type weight loss products.
This white paper will focus on the scientific evidence used to support the formulation and use of Burn + Control Coffee as a weight management product. It will include descriptions and conclusions from various in vitro and in vivo trials showing efficacy and safety of the proprietary ingredients. This paper is meant to assist in the empowerment of the educated consumer, to determine the best weight management product for their needs.

DIETING SUCKS. It tends to lead to cravings, hunger, unreasonable expectations and let’s not forget empty wallets.
This generally causes people to give up on their diet and gain the weight back.
For this reason, most conventional weight loss methods have a terrible success rate. Very few people keep the weight off in the long run.
This is where healthy coffees and teas with the revolutionary herb Garcinia Cambogia extract step in.
According to many health experts (Dr. Oz included), Garcinia Cambogia can reduce appetite and help you lose weight, pretty much without effort. Let’s take a closer look at the herb that has some of Hollywood’s biggest and brightest stars looking sexy and svelte in record time.
What is Garcinia Cambogia?
Garcinia cambogia comes from a tropical fruit grown in India and Southeast Asia. The active ingredient has been identified: hydroxycitric acid (HCA). It is said to block fat and suppress the appetite. It inhibits a key enzyme, citrate lyase, that the body needs to make fat from carbohydrates. It suppresses appetite by increasing serotonin levels; low serotonin levels are associated with depression and emotional or reactive eating.
It allegedly decreases belly fat, suppresses appetite, controls emotional eating, and changes body composition by increasing lean muscle mass. It doesn’t just produce weight loss, but it improves overall health. It is said to decrease cholesterol, LDL, and triglycerides by 10-30% and to raise levels of the “good cholesterol” HDL.
Research and clinical studies are on going. Below are a few of the most recent findings. Also included are stories from Javita Members and Customers regarding their experience with coffees and teas that feature Garcinia Cambogia.
(-) Hydroxycitric acid (HCA), an active ingredient extracted from the Garcinia cambogia fruit rind, has been commonly used as a dietary supplement for weight management. Given the controversy over HCA related testicular toxicity in animal studies, we investigated changes in serum sex hormones levels as an extension of our previous double-blind placebo-controlled trial in human subjects, in which 44 participants received either G. cambogia extract (1667.3 mg/day equivalent to 1000 mg HCA/day) or placebo for 12 weeks. Compared to the placebo group, administration of the extract did not significantly alter the serum testosterone, estrone, and estradiol levels. Similarly, hematology, serum triacylglycerol and serum clinical pathology parameters did not reveal any significant adverse effects. The results of this preliminary investigation indicate that ingestion of G. cambogia extract at dose levels commonly recommended for human use does not affect serum sex hormone levels and blood parameters.

The aim of present study is to evaluate the effects of Garcinia cambogia on the mRNA levels of the various genes involved in adipogenesis, as well as on body weight gain, visceral fat accumulation, and other biochemical markers of obesity in obesity-prone C57BL/6J mice. Consumption of the Garcinia cambogia extract effectively lowered the body weight gain, visceral fat accumulation, blood and hepatic lipid concentrations, and plasma insulin and leptin levels in a high-fat diet (HFD)-induced obesity mouse model. The Garcinia cambogia extract reversed the HFD-induced changes in the expression pattern of such epididymal adipose tissue genes as adipocyte protein aP2 (aP2), sterol regulatory element-binding factor 1c (SREBP1c), peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma2 (PPARgamma2), and CCAT/enhancer-binding protein alpha (C/EBPalpha). These findings suggest that the Garcinia cambogiaextract ameliorated HFD-induced obesity, probably by modulating multiple genes associated with adipogenesis, such as aP2, SREBP1c, PPARgamma2, and C/EBPalpha in the visceral fat tissue of mice.

Yerba mate has shown up in a lot of different supplements lately. If you’ve ever wondered how it helps you burn and lose weight, and what other health benefits might you observe, then this short article can help you sort it all out.
How Yerba Mate Helps You Burn Fat
Yerba mate is a stimulant with an ingredient known as mateine, which is similar to caffeine, without some of the known side effects. The mateine in yerba mate can help increase your metabolism and increase your energy, thereby burning fat in the process.
Yerba mate also has a relaxing effect that can calm your emotions and make you less prone to fall into overeating while stressed—a condition known as stress eating. This effect of yerba mate has also been known to stop cravings you may have for unhealthy foods. In addition, yerba mate has been found to slow down the rate of gastric emptying. This leads to dieters feeling fuller longer and less likely to overeat. It’s easier to burn fat when you’re not burning off all the excess food you’re eating.
Yerba mate’s weight loss properties were discovered during a study in which dieters consumed yerba mate along with guarana and damiana. It is unknown at this time whether the weight loss properties are from yerba mate, the other herbs in the study or the combination of all three. Yerba mate has also been known to delay the onset of lactic acid in your muscles—a condition that many exercisers know as “the burn.” A delaying of “the burn” allows you to work out for longer than usual, thereby also increasing your ability to burn more fat.
Other Benefits of Yerba Mate
The Positive Effects of Yerba Maté In Obesity
Cellular studies demonstrate that yerba maté suppresses adipocyte differentiation and triglyceride accumulation and reduces inflammation. Animal studies show that yerba maté modulates signaling pathways that regulate adipogenesis, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and insulin signaling responses. In summary, the data presented here showed that the use of yerba maté might be useful against obesity, improving the lipid parameters in humans and animal models. In addition, yerba maté modulates the expression of genes that are changed in the obese state and restores them to more normal levels of expression. In doing so, it addresses several of the abnormal and disease-causing factors associated with obesity. Protective and ameliorative effects on insulin resistance were also observed. Thus, as a general conclusion, it seems that yerba maté beverages and supplements might be helpful in the battle against obesity.
Anti-obesity and anti-diabetic effects
Our data from in vivo studies revealed that Yerba Mate treatment affects food intake, resulting in higher energy expenditure, likely as a result of higher basal metabolism in Yerba Mate-treated mice. Furthermore, in vivo effects of Yerba Mate on lipid metabolism included reductions in serum cholesterol, serum triglycerides, and glucose concentrations in mice that were fed a high fat diet. In conclusion, Yerba Mate can potentially be used to treat obesity and diabetes
Antiobesity effects of yerba maté extract
After treatment with yerba maté extract, we observed a recovery of the expression levels. In conclusion, our data show that yerba maté extract has potent antiobesity activity in vivo. Additionally, we observed that the treatment had a modulatory effect on the expression of several genes related to obesity

According to the Mayo Clinic, Metabolism is the process by which your body converts what you eat and drink into energy. During this complex biochemical process, calories in food and beverages are combined with oxygen to release the energy your body needs to function. Even when you’re at rest, your body needs energy for all its “hidden” functions, such as breathing, circulating blood, adjusting hormone levels, and growing and repairing cells.
Unfortunately, weight gain is most commonly the result of eating more calories than you burn. To lose weight, then, you need to create an energy deficit by eating fewer calories, increasing the number of calories you burn through physical activity, or both.
Yerba mate is a central nervous system stimulant containing caffeine, but it also contains a number of other nutrients, including antioxidants, amino acids, polyphenols, vitamins and minerals. The chemical compounds and nutrients in yerba mate tea affect your metabolism to make your body use carbohydrates more efficiently. This means you’ll get more energy from the food you eat. You’ll also burn more of the calories your body has stored in fat cells as fuel when you drink coffee with yerba mate regularly. Regular yerba mate consumption also helps keep lactic acid from building up in your muscles so you can decrease post workout soreness and cut your recovery time.Yerba mate has stimulant qualities to help you feel full sooner after you begin eating, and it slows your digestion so that your stomach stays full longer. Combining yerba mate with a healthy diet and regular exercise can help boost your metabolism to burn more calories, and it can help you eat less by curbing your appetite slightly.
Controlling portion size may be the single most effective thing you can do to promote lasting weight loss, a new study shows. Researchers found overweight people who spent the most efforts in controlling the portion size of what they ate were more likely to lose weight and keep it off. Although increasing planned exercise also help people shed pounds, researchers found portion control efforts seem to offer the biggest payoff.
Garcinia Cambogia is found naturally in India and parts of Asia, and also on the Pacific coast of South and Central America all the way from Peru up to Mexico, and likes a humid forested environment. Also known as Brindall berries, garcinia is believed to act as an appetite suppressant and allows you to lose weight by diminishing your desire for food. Not only does Garcinia Cambogia suppress your appetite, but it also limits the body’s ability to turn carbohydrates into fat. This factor, combined with increased calorie burning and a suppressed appetite, prohibit the body from converting excess carbohydrates into stored body fat. In fact, instead of increasing your body fat, you’ll increase your energy.
“I LOVE the energy Javita has brought to my life. It is what got me started as a member. I am 41, a mother of a 2 & 3 yr old, own a preschool, life is busy. I start my day at 4 am and go until 10pm, I don’t know how I survived before Javita. Actually, I tried by drinking 4-5 sometimes 6 cups of coffee a day. I was not a coffee drinker before having children of my own. Now I drink 1, sometimes 2 cups of Javita Burn+Control, and for the last week I have been enjoying my Lean+Green Tea in the late afternoon/early evening. I have focus and less stress when dealing with my busy toddlers all day. I’m less grumpy and actually enjoy my afternoons more and play more with my children. It’s made me a better mommy! It’s been great having this new found energy with the bonus of weight loss. I lost 20 lbs in 3 months and 5.5 inches around my ‘mommy tummy’. In the last week of adding the Lean+Green Tea, I’ve lost an additional 3 lbs. I’m sleeping better and waking up feeling rested. I feel less stressed. I’m feeling better, looking better and much happier!! Thank you Javita!!” ~Veronica
