Switch™ is a stimulant-free supplement designed to support the metabolizing of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Switch promotes healthy weight management by activating the AMPK pathway and providing supporting ingredients through its propriety blend of Alpha Lipoic Acid, Leucine, Citrulline, and other synergistic ingredients. Paired with Curb™ to create the Max Meta-Switch™ Weight Management System, this assists your diet and exercise and keeps your body running healthy and clean.
Switch’s core ingredient, Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA), is a powerful antioxidant that helps promote a healthy metabolism. Unlike most antioxidants, ALA is both fat and water soluble. This enables it to effectively penetrate every part of the cell. This ability allows ALA to better stimulate the metabolic “master switch” that responds to how much energy is available to the cells. This master switch, known as “AMPK” (adenosine-monophosphate-activated protein kinase), is a protein based enzyme that regulates cellular energy, metabolism, and even Glutathione levels. AMPK can also reduce fat accumulation in the blood and other parts of the body and can improve insulin sensitivity. Max International’s Switch is designed to interact with AMPK to encourage the metabolic system to burn more fuel. Supporting Energy, Exercise, and Recovery Switch capsules are designed with a proprietary blend of ingredients that are meant to support the process of weight management and lean muscle development. This blend supports the break down of carbohydrates for more energy production, supports muscle protein synthesis, supplements essential vitamins lost while dieting, and supports the removal of harmful toxins and waste products released from fat during the weight management process. The process of weight loss can cause muscle loss and feelings of fatigue which make effective weight management even harder. To counter these effects, Switch contains both Leucine and Citrulline to keep cells operating at their most efficient level. Leucine is a powerful branched chain amino acid (BCAA) that helps stimulate skeletal muscle protein synthesis. Essentially, Leucine deficiency signals that there is insufficient protein available for protein synthesis which shuts down the muscle building activity needed to support healthy weight loss. Since muscle burns three times as many calories as fat per pound, more muscle mass equals more calories burned. Switch also has the powerful amino acid Citrulline to help keep energy levels up and to counteract the negative effects of exercise. Citrulline works by assisting ATP production and helping to increase post exercise Creatine levels in the muscles which gives more sustained energy and endurance. By helping to eliminate metabolic pollutants like Lactic Acid and Ammonia, Citrulline also supports recovery from exercise and exertion.
- Switch is one of the only supplement capsules meant to support metabolism without increasing heart rate or blood pressure.
- Switch supports sustained protein synthesis and ATP production during weight loss, providing energy while reducing exhaustion and fatigue.
- Switch’s proprietary blend includes the patented ingredient RiboCeine to support Glutathione production. Working synergistically with Curb, the Meta-Switch system supports the burning of food and fat at an optimal rate while efficiently removing food and fuel waste.
Switch’s main ingredients comprise a proprietary blend designed to:
- Supports the transformation of food into fuel.
- Support the maintainenance of muscle and protein levels that can be lost while dieting.
- Support the level of glutathione to better remove toxins and support the body’s immune system.
The proprietary blend includes several additional supplements. These vitamins and minerals (Vitamin D2, Thiamine, and Potassium) are found in lower levels in overweight individuals. By normalizing these levels, individuals stay healthy during the weight loss process. Switch is far safer and more effective than HCG diets.
