Sinetrol - Fat Shredding technology - weight management

Sinetrol® I Weight Management

Sinetrol® is a citrus extract standardized in polyphenols and clinically proven to reduce the excess of fat mass. The action of Sinetrol® relies on its unique and patented mechanism of action, the Fat Shredding Technology®: the active compounds of Sinetrol® naturally enhances the release of free fatty acids from the fat cells; triglycerides stored in excess in the adipocytes are cut into free fatty acids + glycerol which are then released into the plasma to be burned by the metabolism.
