SHOT DRENA+ is a practical shot with draining, purifying, slimming, antioxidant and adaptogenic properties, which combines the qualities of 4TEA MATRIX with those of Cacti-Nea™.

4TEA MATRIX exploits the draining and slimming properties of green tea and maté, through their common active ingredients, methylxanthines. Chlorogenic acid and caffeine in particular, help reduce fat absorption and increase the ability to consume excess fats. Chlorogenic acid acts thanks to its ability to inhibit the glucose-6-phosphate (G6P) enzyme that would allow it to reduce the quantity of glucose produced by the body. It can also inhibit the alpha-glucosidase that intervenes in the absorption of carbohydrates. Thanks to these actions, it can reduce the quantity of sugar and fat in the body.  In a clinical study, coffee enriched with chlorogenic acid has been used to prove a 6.9% reduction in glucose absorption. Another clinical study provided for its regular use for 12 weeks. The result was an average reduction in body weight of 5.4kg in overweight persons. Hibiscus and Rooibos have a mainly draining and antioxidant action. They are rich in vitamins, Vitamin C above all, and minerals such as Iron, Calcium and Magnesium. Rooibos has also immunostimulating and adaptogenic properties, a very important aspect to fight diet stress. This property allows it to act as an energizing tonic if taken in the morning or during the day, and have a relaxing effect if taken in the evening. Thanks to its active principles, it is useful to reduce lipids and triglycerides, normalize glycaemic values and prevent arteriosclerosis.  In fact, polyphenol luteolin inhibits the action of the lipases, enzymes that cause its absorption and consequent unwelcome accumulation, while the flavonoid aspalathin seems to activate the AMP kinase that mobilizes fat and cholesterol from the liver and adipose tissue for their use.

To complete the formulation of SHOT DRENA+ we find Cacti-Nea™, a mixture of Opuntia ficus indica. In perfect harmony with the constituents of 4TEA MATRIX, it has remarkable draining and antioxidant properties. In particular, Cacti-Nea™ is able to:

-        increase diuresis in women with BMI <25 by 27%,

-       decrease the feeling of leg heaviness and swollen feet, and

-       induce a positive effect on the fat/lean mass ratio in favour of the latter.


A first clinical study carried out in August 2009 highlighted the diuretic effects of Cacti-Nea™, showing a significant reduction of the liquids already from the first week of treatment. It follows that Cacti-Nea™ is different from most draining agents because it can promote the elimination of excess liquid and toxins from the body, without any negative effects on blood pressure or the balance of the minerals. A very important factor to maintain the balance of the liquids in the body, useful for the metabolic and energy functions and for the concentration of minerals, indispensable for our well-being. 

Water retention reduction & Mineral preservation

In another study a positive effect was shown also on body composition, with a decrease of fat mass in favour of lean mass. When compared with the group treated with a placebo, the group treated with Cacti-Nea™ showed a weight reduction of up to 3.3kg.

Another important effect of Cacti-Nea™ is the antioxidant effect. In fact, it can increase the plasma concentration of antioxidants and particularly of glutathione peroxidase, which is its most powerful representative in our body. This way it can protect the body from the free radicals that are generated in oxidative stress conditions. Moreover, Cacti-Nea™ has a high content of indicaxanthin, a pigment with high antioxidant power, capable of counteracting the damages caused by factors such as the exposure to UV rays or pollution.  A study showed that the bioavailability of indicaxanthin is 20 times higher than betalain.


Unlike other antioxidants, these have high bioavailability, that is translated in a more immediate and effective use by the body.  The defences are increased and more capable of reacting, guaranteeing higher and faster protection. Another effect was noticed at LDL level, with a consequent decrease in ‘bad’ cholesterol and increase in HDL ‘good’ cholesterol.
