Formula S/B

  • Non-GMO
  • Gluten Free
  • Vegan

• We recommend using our Formula S/B metabolism booster if you are or will be consuming more sugar than usual, such as desserts, wine, and carbohydrates, or if you experience hunger and energy crashes throughout the day from blood sugar spikes following carbohydrate-rich meals.

• Our Formula S/B metabolism booster helps the body process sugar, carbohydrate, fats and proteins, while also supporting the maintenance of bones and good health overall.

• Each bottle contains 60 Capsules, giving you a 10 day supply of Formula S/B.


Our Formula S/B metabolism booster is formulated with a unique combination of ingredients that are designed to promote healthy glucose and carbohydrate metabolism.

Formula S/B is also a source of antioxidants that offer protection from free radicals within the body. Pollutants and toxins are released throughout the body during weight loss, as they're typically stored in fat cells. So, when you lose weight more toxins are released throughout the body, which antioxidants help eliminate to reduce damage.

Our Formula S/B is designed to complement our Weight Loss Plans, as it'll help enhance your body's ability to process sugar. This metabolism booster will also work with any other diet plan to support the body's metabolic process. Essentially, whether you're on a Herbal Magic Weight Loss Plan or not, if you're going to be indulging in sugars over the weekend, on vacation, during a holiday or have been enjoying more sugar than normal then this is the metabolism booster you need!

Research & Resources

Research suggests alpha lipoic acid is best known for its unique antioxidant properties, free radical scavenging abilities and participation in the effects of other antioxidants. Alpha lipoic acid is also known to ameliorate the effects of fructose by improving glucose homeostasis.[i] Scientific investigations have shown alpha lipoic acid supplementation is effective in helping with weight management, demonstrating positive effects on satiety, weight decrease and changes in fat and lean mass. Alpha lipoic acid exerts these weight management effects by suppressing hypothalamic AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) activity which is important in the central regulation of food intake and energy expenditure.[ii],[iii]

Chromium is an essential trace element and chromium (III) is the form of chromium found in supplements and in food. Chromium has been shown to be useful in its ability to support insulin thereby assisting in healthy glucose metabolism. It is thought that chromium potentiates the action of insulin by increasing receptor numbers and increasing insulin binding to cells.[iv] Chromium is widely used for weight loss, to increase muscle mass and fat-free mass, and decrease body fat. Results from scientific investigations have indicated that chromium supplementation increases muscle gain and fat loss associated with exercise and improves glucose metabolism and the serum lipid profile in patients with or without diabetes.[v],[vi],[vii],[viii],[ix],[x]

Manganese is an essential trace nutrient that plays a role in various physiological processes. Manganese is required for the regulation of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism, reproduction and normal brain function. Manganese is also an important co-factor in the brain for several enzymes, such as the anti-oxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase and is involved in neurotransmitter synthesis and metabolism.[xi] Manganese may affect thyroid hormone homeostasis.[xii]

Life saver 😊

I love all the products because they are helping me to fulfill my goals of weight loss. But the S/B and F/B really helped to maintain my weight when I went away for two weeks on a trip. I know it is really hard to stay on track when traveling and living in hotels but I honestly believe those two products kept me maintaining my weight while away. Love love these products 😍😍
