  4. 4. What is BMI <ul><li>BMI stands for B ody M ass I ndex </li></ul><ul><li>The BMI is a statistical measurement derived from your height and weight </li></ul><ul><li>Drawback: It does not measure the percentage of body fat. </li></ul><ul><li>A muscleman may have a high BMI but have much less fat than an unfit person whose BMI is lower. </li></ul><ul><li>However, the BMI measurement can be a useful indicator for the 'average person'. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Calculation of Your BMI <ul><li>BMI (kg/m²) = Weight in kg/ (Height in meters) ² </li></ul><ul><li>BMI (lb/inch²) = Weight in lb *703 / (Height in inches) ² </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/info/obesity/bmi-calculator.php </li></ul>

  8. 8. Ginseng Helps Weight Loss <ul><li>Ginseng may also be used to supplement a weight loss diet. </li></ul><ul><li>Ginseng has the ability to act as a thermogenic. </li></ul><ul><li>It increases bodily heat therefore increasing metabolism and the conversion of fat into muscle. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Ginsenoside Stops Fat Formation <ul><li>Phytotherapy Research Journal reports: </li></ul><ul><li>Ginsenoside Rg3, a ginseng saponin, focuses on its ability to inhibit differentiation in the cells that store energy as fat. </li></ul><ul><li>Rg3 makes the cells less able to complete the fat storage process. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Research on Ginseng and Weight Loss <ul><li>Ginseng was administered orally to the mice for 4 weeks. </li></ul><ul><li>The mice showed a loss of body weight and a decrease in blood glucose levels when compared to the control mice. </li></ul><ul><li>The anti-obesity effect of ginseng may result from inhibiting energy gain. </li></ul><ul><li>It related to the control of weight gain. </li></ul><ul><li>For more info: www.ginsengcare.com </li></ul>
