AS-200 and PM-300 by AMS review


ACTION: A-200 stimulates the metabolism; PM-300 strengthens the immune system.

SOLD AS: Caplets.

INGREDIENTS: The AS-200 product contains crtrin (garcinia cambogia [HCA]), 500 mg; chromiumpicolinate, 200 meg; biotin, 150 meg; brindell berry, 500 mg; folic acid, 400 meg; green-tea extract, 50 mg; niacinamide, 20 mg; pantothenic acid, 10 mg; vitamin A, 10,000 IU; vitamin n, (thiamine hydrochloride), 1.5 mg; vitamin B2 (riboflavin), 1.7 mg; vitamin B~ (pyridoxine hydrochloride), 2.0 mg; vitamin BI2 (cyanocobalamin), 6.0 meg; vitamin C, 500 mg; and white willow bark, 100.mg. The PM-300 is advertised .as a “melatonin complex” that contains, in addition to melatonin, valerian root, lemon balm leaf, scullcap, peppermint leaf, hops, chamomile flowers, kava kava, pantothenic acid, biotin, vitamin C, vitamin A, green-tea extract, brindell berry, and white willow bark. The formula is proprietary.

HOW TO TAKE IT: The manufacturer recommends taking AS-200 along with PM-300. The suggestion is to take 1 to 3 PM-300 caplets after breakfast and 1 to 3 AS-200 caplets at several points during the day to curb cravings.

WHAT IS IT SUPPOSED TO DO: Apparently, chromium decreases yearnings for sugar and carbohydrates and helps reduce fat cells; citrin and the B vitamins curb the appetite. Citrin (HCA) also supposedly triggers glucose to convert to glycogen rather than breaking down into fat or cholesterol. It lets you do this by inhibiting citrate lyase, an enzyme in the liver that manages fat metabolism. Green tea supposedly regulates blood-sugar levels, and white willow bark incorporates a calming effect.

COMMENTS: The main components in AS-200-chromium and HCA-have not been shown to enhance weight loss. The PM-300 includes a variety of herbs that are widely used for their soothing effect, including valerian root, hops, and chamomile. Nonetheless, no matter if this mixture of products can lead to fat loss is extremely questionable.

Although AS-200 can be taken along with other medicines, make sure you speak to your doctor prior to taking this or any herbal product. Do not take AS-200 or PM-300 if you are pregnant or breast-feeding, When you have diabetes and are taking insulin or any antidiabetic medications, consult your physician before taking this or any product that contains chromium. Chromium has the ability to lower insulin resistance, alter the type or amount of medication needed to control diabetes, and change the frequency with which blood-sugar monitoring should be done.
