‘reach weight loss goals faster’
Chromium plays a role in the insulin-signalling pathways that allow our bodies to control the amount of sugar we take in, helping balance blood glucose levels and giving us stable energy. Research also shows that chromium can help protect DNA chromosomes from damage, which means chromium may be able to halt cell mutations that can lead to various chronic diseases. In addition, chromium is associated with longevity and improved cardiovascular health due to its role in metabolizing fats, in addition to proteins, carbohydrates and other nutrients
Carnitine plays a critical role in energy production. It transports long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria so they can be oxidized (utilized) to produce energy. It also transports the toxic compounds generated out of the mitochondria to prevent their accumulation. Given these key functions, carnitine is concentrated in tissues like skeletal and cardiac muscle that utilize fatty acids as a dietary fuel.
Capsaicin is found in chili peppers and acts as a natural fat burner, by speeding up the metabolism and acting as an antioxidant. It is known for its natural anti-inflammatory properties and helps regulate blood sugar levels. It helps in repairing damaged brain tissues, reduced risk of oxidative stress, paediatric asthma, cancer and improved bone health. Capsaicin helps reduce the symptoms of menopause.
When you eat hot peppers, or take capsaicin as a dietary supplement, the capsaicin may improve your digestion by increasing the digestive fluids in the stomach and by fighting bacteria that could cause an infection. It may also help fight diarrhoea caused by bacterial infection. Capsaicin antioxidant properties protect the cells of the body from damage by harmful molecules called free radicals. Capsaicin also may help prevent bacterial infections. Capsaicin may also make mucus thinner and help move it out of the lungs. It is also thought to strengthen lung tissues and help to prevent or treat emphysema.
Green-tea extract is a great source of antioxidants that help support the Immune function, cardiovascular health, and fat loss, improved brain function, and lower the risk of cancer. Green tea’s massive range of antioxidants… being loaded with potent antioxidants called catechins. The most important of these is EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate), a substance that can boost metabolism. Keep in mind that these benefits can be derived both from drinking green tea as a beverage, as well as taking green tea extract as a supplement. Most of the studies used extracts.
In order to burn fat, it must first be broken down in the fat cell and moved into the bloodstream. The active compounds in green tea can aid in this process by boosting the effects of some fat burning hormones. The main antioxidant in tea, EGCG, can help inhibit an enzyme that breaks down the hormone norepinephrine. When this enzyme is inhibited, the amount of norepinephrine increases. This hormone is used by the nervous system as a signal to the fat cells, telling them to break down fat. Therefore, more norepinephrine leads to a stronger signal being sent to the fat cell and more fat gets broken down. The end result is that more fat is broken down, which is released into the bloodstream and becomes available for use as energy by cells that need it, like muscle cells.
Caffeine stimulates the nervous system, which sends direct signals to the fat cells to tell them to break down fat. Caffeine also increases our blood levels of the hormone Epinephrine, which is also known as Adrenaline. Epinephrine travels through the blood, to the fat tissues and send signals to break down fats and release them into the blood; making it available for use as free fatty acids in the blood. Studies show that caffeine can increase the metabolic rate by 3-11%, with larger doses having an even bigger effect. Most of the increase in metabolism is caused by an increase in the burning of fat. Caffeine can improve athletic performance via several mechanisms, one of those being increased mobilization of fatty acids from the fat tissues. Studies show that caffeine can improve exercise performance by 11-12%, on average.
As your neurons fire throughout the day, a neurochemical called adenosine builds up in your body. As the day goes on, more and more adenosine passes through those receptors—and it makes you sleepy. It’s one of the reasons you get tired at night. Caffeine, however, is the same size and shape as adenosine, and when you sip your morning coffee, your adenosine receptors can’t tell the difference. Specifically, caffeine attaches to the A1 receptor. With caffeine docked at the receptor, a lot of your body’s adenosine molecules can’t enter. It creates a build-up. With all that adenosine blocked, the caffeine keeps you from getting tired. With the adenosine receptor clogged, neurotransmitters like dopamine and glutamate can get a head start. It takes about four cups of coffee to block half of the brain’s A1 receptors. With that many receptors clogged, the adenosine mounting in your body has nowhere to go; so, when the caffeine wears off, all that extra adenosine rushes through your receptors causing a crash.
Citrus Aurantium (Synephrine)
Synephrine is and akaloid molecule, that can be found in the fruit of a plant known as Citrus Aurantium. It is one of the main active compounds found in the fruit and is also known as green orange, or sour orange or bitter orange in other parts of the world. Chemically speaking, synephrine is chemically similar to the pseudo-ephedrine and ephedrine compounds that can be located in many of the over-the-counter cold and allergy medications. It is also found in a variety of weight loss and energy supplements.
It was previously used for treating gastrointestinal infections in ancient Chinese medicine. In Europe, the flowers and oil of the bitter orange have been used as a prophylactic and a sedative. While in Brazil, it was used for treating insomnia and anxiety in the folk medicine. It facilitates the absorption of amino acids for muscle build-up. The extract from bitter orange contains powerful alkaloids which include tyramine, octopamine, hordenine, N-methyltyramine and synephrine. These alkaloids target alpha and beta-adrenergic receptors in the body which promotes the breakdown of fat. The activation of these receptors also reduces gastric motility which results in reduced intake of food.
Guilt Free Nitric Oxide Boost (NO3)
‘improve your energy, performance and recovery’
While not exactly an “essential” amino acid — meaning an amino acid that the body cannot make on its own and, therefore, must get from external sources — L-arginine is considered somewhat essential because it’s highly important for many functions; yet it is usually present in low quantities, especially as someone gets older. One of the biggest benefits of L-arginine is its ability to improve blood flow and circulation. In the body, L-arginine is converted into nitric oxide, which causes blood vessels to open wider (vasodilation).
This has multiple benefits, including improving immune function, fertility, detoxification and brain power. Another important aspect of L-arginine is that it stimulates the production of certain hormones, especially beneficial growth hormones and insulin that help usher glucose into cells to be used for growth and energy output. This is one of the reasons it’s believed to enhance physical performance, stamina and strength.
L-citrulline is a substance called a non-essential amino acid. Your kidneys change L-citrulline into another amino acid called L-arginine and a chemical called nitric oxide. These compounds are important to your heart and blood vessel health. They may also improve immune function. L-citrulline boosts nitric oxide production in the body. Nitric oxide helps your arteries relax and work better (through vasodilation), which improves blood flow throughout your body. This may be helpful for treating or preventing many diseases.
Evidence suggests the supplement could possibly help lower blood pressure. L-citrulline supplements may ease symptoms of mild-to-moderate erectile dysfunction (ED). Scientists say L-citrulline does not work as well as ED drugs such as Viagra. However, it appears to be a safe option. Animal studies suggest L-citrulline might also help people with blood vessel problems such as slow wound healing due to diabetes. Other animal research says L-citrulline might improve muscle protein levels and prevent malnourishment in the elderly; research also suggests L-citrulline may help treat intestinal problems (ie. Short bowel syndrome, Celiac disease, Radiation-caused small bowel damage.
Valine is a branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) that works with the other two BCAAs, isoleucine and leucine, to promote normal growth, repair tissues, regulate blood sugar, and provide the body with energy. Valine helps stimulate the central nervous system, and is needed for proper mental functioning. Valine helps prevent the breakdown of muscle by supplying the muscles with extra glucose for energy production during intense physical activity. Valine also helps remove potentially toxic excess nitrogen from the liver, and is able to transport nitrogen to other tissues in the body as needed.
Valine may help treat liver and gallbladder disease, as well as damage to these organs caused by alcoholism and drug abuse. Valine may help treat or even reverse hepatic encephalopathy, or alcohol-related brain damage. Valine is an essential amino acid, which means that the body can’t produce it by itself and needs be obtained through food sources. Natural sources of valine include meats, dairy products, mushrooms, peanuts, and soy protein. A deficiency of valine may also affect the myelin covering of the nerves, and cause degenerative neurological conditions.
If you feel lethargic and drained constantly, there may be an underlying reason that you’re not aware of, you might be lacking in iron — especially if you’re a woman. Although many people don’t think of iron as being a nutrient, you might be surprised to learn that low iron is the most common nutritional deficiency in worldwide. Iron is an essential mineral, the major reason we need it is that it helps to transport oxygen throughout the body. Iron is an important component of haemoglobin, the substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs to transport it throughout your body. Haemoglobin represents about two-thirds of the body’s iron.
If you don’t have enough iron, your body can’t make enough healthy oxygen-carrying red blood cells. A lack of red blood cells is called iron deficiency anaemia. Without healthy red blood cells, your body can’t get enough oxygen. If you’re not getting sufficient oxygen in the body, you’re going to become fatigued. That exhaustion can affect everything from your brain function to your immune system’s ability to fight off infections. If you’re pregnant, severe iron deficiency may increase your risk for complication during and after birth and may affect your child’s development. Iron is also necessary to maintain healthy cells, skin, hair, and nails.
