A Smart Formula for Less Weight and More Energy


Weight Less is a smart formula that healthily promotes weight loss and sustained energy levels throughout the day.*


A powerful mix of wild crafted brown seaweed extracts of Ascophyllum nodosum (kelp) and Fucus vesiculosus (bladderwrack) are shown in research to manage weight reduction and support metabolic health. Moreover, wild brown seaweeds are found to contain potent marine anti-inflammatory and antioxidant factors. Together with 7-Keto DHEA, the mix turns on fat burning mechanism, lowers the glycemic level of meals, and supports sustained energy. Take 1-2 capsules a half hour before meals.*


Weight-Less is Wild Crafted (seaweeds), Organic (seaweeds), Vegan, Kosher, Non GMO, and Gluten Free.

Suggested Use:

Weight Loss: Take 1-2 capsules 15-20 minutes before meals. The powerful mix of brown seaweed extract and 7-Keto turns on the fat burning mechanism in the body, lowers the glycemic load of meals, and supports a steady energy level.*

Energy: Kelp and Bladderwrack extracts are strong high active antioxidants. This combination offers a great protection against oxidation in the mitochondria, and hence helping a sustained energy level in the body.  Take 1caps first thing in the morning with a glass of water. Take another one in the afternoon, before 3 pm.*

Antimicrobial: Kelp and Bladderwrack are powerful antimicrobial agents, going after one of the most insidious bacterial pathogens, Pseudomonas aerugiosa and Staphylococcus aureus

Our Favorite: The Weight-Less is a great traveling companion as it naturally boosts our energy and at the same time has a powerhouse anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial ability, something we all need on the road. Take with Energy (Ultra Minerals & Apple Extract) to acclimate to time changes and different schedule, and Cranberry Pomegranate to reduce bloating (or achy bladder).*

More Info:

Weight-Less is a smart formula for less weight and more energy. Comprised of wild-crafted brown seaweed, Ascophyllum nodosum (kelp) and Fucus vesiculosus (bladderwrack), along with 7-Keto DHEA, Weight-Less is unique and effective.*

Marine algae, in particular, wild brown seaweed such as kelp and bladderwrack are shown to lower the glycemic load of complex and simple carbohydrates for better insulin management, as well as offer a power-filled phenolic activity for antioxidant and anti-inflammation effect (Roy et al., 2011). 7-Keto has been used for many years to turn on fat burning mechanism and offer an effective and safe way to lose weight (Bobyleva et al., 1997). Together, Weight-Less promotes a sustained energy level throughout the day as it modulates carbohydrate digestion and absorption for better weight management and metabolic health ( Gabbia et al., 2017; Catarino et al., 2017).*

Weight management is essential to our health, yet difficult to achieve. Research has correlated excess body fat with metabolic syndrome, which includes high blood sugar, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and triglycerides. These metabolic syndrome factors are found to increase the risk for cardiovascular issues, obesity, diabetes, and cancer (American Heart Association, 2017; National Cancer Institute, 2017). In fact, metabolic syndrome is now a growing public health concern worldwide (Wright et al., 2017; Calton et al., 2014).*

Inflammation is also shown in research to link obesity and cardio–metabolic risks for obese and non-obese individuals (Phillips & Perry, 2013). Hence, a diet of whole plants rich in phenols is shown in research to offer anti-inflammatory benefits (Wright et al., 2017; McAnulty et al., 2014). Weight-Less is comprised of wildcrafted brown seaweeds shown in research to offer potent phenols with high total antioxidant potency, antidiabetic properties, and anti-inflammatory potential (Gabbia et al., 2017; Catarino et al., 2017; Pantidos et al., 2014; Bahar et al., 2012).*

Studies have linked low glycemic index to improved cardiovascular health, blood sugar control, weight control, and even skin health (McMillan-Price et al., 2006, Barclay et al., 2008, Hare-Bruun et al., 2006; Smith et al., 2007, respectively). For this reason, 250 mg of brown seaweed extracts of kelp and bladderwrack is used half an hour before meals to aid carbohydrate digestion and assimilation; shifting high glycemic index food to one typical of a low glycemic index food (Paradis et al., 2011; Roy et al., 2011; Bérubé et al., 2014). Studies find supplementing with brown seaweed before meals to help slow down the digestion of whole or simple carbs to significantly reduce blood glucose for overall glycemic control (Gabbia et al., 2017; Bérubé et al., 2014; Kim et al., 2014; Lamarche et al., 2010). Glycemic control supports a consistent metabolic health and weight management.*

7-Keto DHEA, or 7-oxo DHEA is named after the compound 3-acetyl-7-oxo dehydroepiandrosterone, a substance found naturally in the body that is metabolized from the hormone DHEA (Marwah et al., 2002). Studies have indicated that 7-Keto is stable (does not convert to testosterone or estrogens), safe and effective as part of a weight loss program (Lardy et al., 1995, Davidson et al., 2000; Humanetics Corps, 2005, respectively). In fact, 7-Keto has shown in studies to activate 3 thermogenic enzymes, known to help the body convert stored fat to energy (Zenk et al., 2007, 2004). But since levels of DHEA and 7-oxo decline in our body with age, supplementation with 7-Keto helps maintain healthy levels for weight management (Lardy et al., 1998; 1995).*

In the pre-clinical development (see Bobyleva et al., 1993), 7-Keto was found to behave similarly to the thyroid hormone which also activates the thermogenic enzymes in our body. 7-oxo DHEA showed similar ability to restore mitochondrial function (Bobyleva et al., 1997) and support weight loss by enhancing thermogenic enzyme activity.*

Clinical trials have been ongoing since 1999, in specific, two randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled (“RDBPC”) in 1999 and 2000 have shown that 7-keto significantly increased weight loss over a period of eight weeks compared to the placebo group (Zenk et al., 2002; see also Kaiman et al., 2000; Bobyleva et al., 1997).*

Thermogenesis is the creation of heat in the body; a form of energy that is produced when we eat and metabolize food. Kaiman et al. (2000; see also Zenk et al., 2002) conducted a RDBPC study of 30 healthy overweight adults for 8 weeks. The group taking the supplement of 7-Keto showed a significantly reduced body weight. The study included exercise (three times a week) and a reduced caloric diet for both placebo and 7-Keto groups. Zenk et al. (2004; 2007) similarly found that 7-Keto increased metabolism, which is shown in research to promote weight lose and support the management of weight overall. By up-regulating the activity of fat burning enzymes (the thermogenic effect), energy expenditure is increased, enhancing the process of weight loss (Gomez et al., 2002).*

Moreover, 7-xox DHEA is also shown in research to enhance memory in young and old rats (Shi et al., 2000), immune modulation in older men (Hampl et al., 2000), and significantly enhance depressive symptoms and hypo-immunity of mice when induced by chronic mild stress (Liu et al., 2003).*

What is an ideal diet for weight loss and good health? Research studies link the emerging global pattern of metabolic syndrome and weight gain to the prevalence of Westernized diet: the daily consumption of meats, dairy, eggs, simple and processed carbohydrates, and too much sugar (Chai et al., 2017; Azadbakht & Esmaillzadeh, 2009; Lutsey et al., 2008). Although there are conflicting views on dietary guidelines, many scientists and health organizations have come to the conclusion that a focus on whole food, plant-based diet is the healthiest guideline for metabolic syndrome and weight loss (Yokoyama et al., 2017; Satija et al., 2017; Kahleova et al., 2017; Hever et al., 2017; Turner et al., 2017; UN Report, 2016; Wang et al., 2015; Tilman & Clark, 2014; WHO/FAO, 2003).*

In fact, low carbohydrate diets with high fat content is shown to increase metabolic syndrome (Lamont et al., 2017; UN Report, 2016). Hence, the type and nature of carbohydrates we chose for our diet is important. To improve our metabolic health (and guard against obesity, cardiovascular, and diabetes), our carbohydrates should be comprised of whole plants with fiber (Wright et al., 2017).*

The Plates, Pyramids, Planet report, compiled in collaboration with the Food Climate Research Network (FCRN) at the University of Oxford, concludes that a plant-based diet has many advantages for our health, the environment, and our planet (UN Report, 2016). Many organizations teach and support the transition into a whole food, plant-based diet.*

Weight-Less offers a unique combination of wild brown seaweed extracts of kelp and bladderwrack with 7-Keto DHEA. The formula is potent with antioxidants, smartly supports weight loss and management, enhances the body’s ability to burn fat more efficiently, creates energy, and promotes metabolic health. Together with a focus on whole food plant-based diet and a reasonable exercise program, managing weight becomes effective, healthy, and even joyful. *
