Boldly named ProVen, this is a dietary supplement that comes in the form of capsules. It is manufactured by NutraVesta, which is a new, relatively unheard-of company.Unfortunately, when trying to find out information about the manufacturer and their company history, we were unable to find much other than NutraVesta is an American company.NutraVesta doesn’t provide much information about their products either, other than a list of ingredients. However, they promise that all of their products are GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice)-certified and made in a facility that has been registered with the FDA.From what we can tell from our research, ProVen seems to be the only product that NutraVesta makes.ProVen uses a pretty complex formula, mostly made up of various plant extracts with a few essential vitamins thrown in as well. Most of these extracts seem to have antioxidant effects.Antioxidants are something your body needs to heal cell damage and remain healthy, but they may also help you lose weight. Some evidence suggests obesity and oxidative damage may be linked, so decreasing your body’s levels of oxidative stress may help you shed a few extra pounds.Fiber also plays a role in this supplement’s effectiveness. It helps keep you feeling full for longer, which is important if you’re on a strict diet. It also prevents your body from taking in excess amounts of fat.In addition, ginseng contains caffeine, which is a well-known stimulant that can boost your energy levels and potentially enable you to get more exercise.However, some of the ingredients, in particular turmeric, may not be effective without an activating agent. An activating agent is any kind of substance that increases the bioavailability of other ingredients.The most common activating agent used in supplements in Piperine, sometimes branded as Bioperine. Piperine doesn’t appear to be used in this supplement, so your body might not be able to absorb enough turmeric to make much of a difference.In addition, ProVen doesn’t provide the daily value for any of their ingredients, so it’s hard to say if this supplement contains enough vitamins and extracts to be effective.
