Why TLS CORE is the best!
TLS CORE is the only product on the market created to deal specifically with weight management issues by using four essential ingredients, namely: Lepticore®*, white kidney bean extract, chromium and bitter melon extract in our unique, high quality formula. TLS CORE contains Lepticore®, a clinically-tested, patented ingredient backed by a double-blind, placebo controlled human clinical trial; it is a multifunctional complex that provides support for overall health and healthy weight management. It also includes white kidney bean extract and it also contains chromium (an essential trace mineral) which are both commonly added to natural weight-loss products. Key minerals like Chromium also help contribute to normal macronutrient metabolism and the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels. Lastly, TLS CORE also includes bitter melon extract, which has been shown to have antioxidant and immune-supporting properties.
TLS CORE provides the best combination of scientifically proven herbals and nutrients in precise dosages recommended by science. Other products may contain select ingredients in lower dosages, but with TLS CORE it’s guaranteed that you are receiving a quality herbal supplement to support healthy weight management and more with four essential ingredients: LeptiCore®, White Kidney Bean Extract, Chromium and Bitter Melon Extract.

Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin. Sources of vitamin A include organ meats (such as liver and kidney), egg yolks, butter, carrot juice, squash, sweet potatoes, spinach, peaches, fortified dairy products and cod liver oil. Vitamin A is also part of a family of compounds including retinol, retinal and beta-carotene. Beta-carotene, also known as pro-vitamin A, can be converted into vitamin A when additional levels are required. All the body’s tissues need Vitamin A for general growth and repair. Vitamin A helps to promote normal vision, contributes to normal iron metabolism, contributes to the normal function of the immune system, and has a role in the process of cell specialization.
Dietary chromium is an essential trace mineral assisting in the metabolism and use of carbohydrates and fat. Known as the glucose tolerance factor, chromium promotes the delivery of blood sugar to cells, thereby helping to maintain normal blood glucose levels. Due to the role it plays in metabolism, chromium is commonly added to natural weight management products.
Phaseolus Vulgaris (White Kidney Bean Extract)
Scientifically known as Phaseolus vulgaris, white kidney bean is known as an amylase inhibitor. Amylase is an enzyme that breaks down starchy carbohydrates into more easily absorbed sugars such as glucose. As individuals age, the ability to use carbohydrates from the diet slows down, causing increased glucose in the blood stream, leading to excess storage in the form of fat. Supplementation with white kidney bean extract allows certain carbohydrates to pass through the body undigested, stopping them from eventually being converted into fat.
LeptiCore is a proprietary, complex of plant-based polysaccharides (guar gum, gum Arabic, and locust bean gum), esterified fatty acids, pomegranate extract, beta-carotene, and blue-green algae that may help support overall health and well-being.
Bitter Melon (Momordica charantia) Fruit Extract
Bitter melon (Momordica charantia) grows in tropical areas and is cultivated throughout South America as a food and folk medicine. It has been shown to have antioxidant and immune-supporting properties. Bitter melon contains several natural plant constituents including alkaloids, glycosides, peptides, cucurbitins, charantin, cucurbitacins, momordine, and momorcharins. Charantin, cucurbutanoids, momordicin, and oleanolic acids are thought to be the plant’s primary active components.
Who should take TLS CORE?
Anyone over the age of 18 years who is interested in supporting their overall health and well-being with key vitamins, minerals, and herbals like White Kidney Bean and a special LeptiCore® Blend.
How should I take this product?
Take 2 tablets twice daily, 30-45 minutes before your two biggest meals of the day. Do not exceed 4 tablets daily.
In considering the TLS Weight Management Solution, how important is kilojoule or calorie counting?
The TLS Weight Management Solution is based on low-glycaemic eating and portion control, not kilojoule or calorie counting. Therefore, each person, regardless of size, can follow the system to achieve optimal results. The TLS Weight Management Solution is based around eating the right kinds of foods to help nourish and fill your body. Counting kilojoules or calories is not a priority when you follow the TLS Weight Management Solution.
Are fat free and low fat foods the solution to being overweight?
These foods can definitely play a part in an overall effort to manage your weight, but consuming them will not undo a myriad of other dietary downfalls or make up for a lack of physical activity. Successful weight management depends on achieving the right mix of diet and physical activity. Also, focusing on eating a wide variety of lower-GI foods is a great way to appease the senses, as well as gain a greater range of vitamins and nutrients in the diet. When you consume an assortment of foods, eating healthier becomes easier and more gratifying. Fat free and low fat does not always mean low kilojoule or low calorie, and these foods are usually not very satisfying.
Do I have to exercise to see results?
This product was designed to be taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise. Exercise and healthy eating are essential for optimal results.
How does TLS CORE support weight management?
When you work towards weight management and healthy lifestyle goals, TLS CORE works as hard as you. In the weight management game, starchy carbohydrates can really pack on the pounds. Starchy carbohydrates lead to higher blood sugar levels, causing the body to store fat. White kidney bean extract inhibits enzymes that help break down carbohydrates, allowing certain carbohydrates to pass through the body undigested and stopping them from eventually being converted into fat. Additionally, chromium contributes to normal macronutrient metabolism and the maintenance of normal blood sugar levels, while LeptiCore® may help support overall health and well-being to further support your weight management goals.
TLS CORE contains powerful minerals like chromium, which contributes to normal macronutrient metabolism and the maintenance of normal blood sugar levels. Additional key vitamins and herbals like White Kidney Bean and our LeptiCore® Blend.
Are there any warnings/contraindications associated with this product?
If you are currently using prescription medications for diabetes or have an ongoing medical condition, consult your healthcare provider before using this product. If you are pre-diabetic or diabetic, monitor blood glucose levels closely when using this product. This product can reduce the absorption of amoxicillin so take TLS Core and amoxicillin at least 4 hours apart. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not use this product.
