Due to the content of banned substances, the supplement cannot be used by professional athletes taking part in contests controlled by the World Anti-Doping Agency.
According to some sources, the supplement’s components can reduce both appetite and thirst. Because of that, special attention should be paid to adequate fluid intake during supplementation.
Due to the content of stimulants, do not take other agents with such effect.
The preparation cannot be used by individuals with any neurological and cardiovascular disorders.
The supplement is designed for advanced athletes who are aware of their needs and the body’s response to strong stimulants. It should not be taken by inexperienced users.
Proprietary blend - is a complex of bioactive ingredients in the proportions, which are covered by the manufacturer's patent. According to the law in force in Poland, the components of the blend are known, and , by the place on the packaging, you can identify which components are in bigger amount (the components are listed in the decreasing order of amounts).
Proprietary blends are used in many food supplements, such as creatine stacks, no-boosters, fat burners and pro-testosterone supplements, improving libido.
Rigidula Acacia (Acacia Blackbrush) belongs to the Leguminosae family. The most commonly used in the form of plant extracts, affecting the metabolism rate and strain (activating strength and endurance), affecting the intensity of lipolysis and inhibiting appetite. Is a dietary supplement recommended for martial arts athletes.
Citrus aurantium extract (Bitter orange extract) is widely used in weight reduction process, among athletes, active individuals and people with so called sedentary life-style. It is a source of synephrine and octopamine, which in combination with caffeine and polyphenols contained in green tea affect lipolysis, releasing fatty acids from adipocytes, causing increased energy expenditure, burning them in the sources of cells vital energy (mitochondria). It became popular after the banning ephedine (dangerous for the body) by WADA .
The extract of bitter orange is part of the weight loss supplements (I.e. thermogenics), pre-workout creatine stacks and nitrogen boosters.
Dosage: No specific standards of daily consumption. At high hypertension and with medicines containing a statin, extract of bitter orange should not be used.
Theobromine (3,7-Dimethylxanthine) is a purine alkaloid, poorly soluble in water, present in cocoa beans, as well as the leaves of yerba mate, tea, coffee, cola and peanuts. It is a diuretic, lowers blood pressure and improves brain function (dilates the blood vessels of the brain). Also expands the blood vessels throughout the circulatory system, preventing atherosclerotic changes. Sometimes it is used in slimming diet. Combined with caffeine and polyphenols becomes thermogenic. In the sports supplementation formulations containing theobromine are used diuretics and fat burners. It is a component of thermogenics, pre-workout creatine stacks, as well as nitrogen boosters.
Green tea extract is a concentrate that contains biologically active compounds: polyphenols (e.g. catechin, in the form of EGCG - epigallocatechin gallate), having antioxidant properties and a small thermogenic potential, modifies the action of testosterone metabolites, DTH. Green tea extract is an ingredient of many sports supplements containing fat burners, having pro-health and vitaminizing effect; also for those with low physical activity as an antioxidant and slimming supplement. Available either as mono-preparations, ready drinks, and above all as an extract.
Dosage: 200-500 mg per day (depending of the content of other active bio-components).
Cassia Nomame – wild herbaceous plant, willingly used in traditional Chinese medicine. It demonstrates dehydrating and laxative properties and has been used in problems with constipations. It was noticed that one of side-effects of its application is weight loss, therefore it started to be used as an element of weight loss supplements.
However, according to the current knowledge on this plant, its abilities to stimulate fatty tissue reduction do not result from its laxative properties. Cassia Nomame provides compounds which are natural inhibitors of lipase, therefore it limits the absorption of fat in the human organism.
There are also sources which indicate that Cassia Nomame may have thermogenic effect and may stimulate metabolic rate. It makes the extracts from this plant an ideal ingredient of fat burners.
Apart from this, the plant has pro-health properties. It may have anti-inflammatory effect, due to which it is recommended in the therapy of arthritis. Some sources also suggest positive influence of Cassia Nomame among people suffering from migraines.
Importantly, Cassia Nomame cannot be taken by pregnant and breast-feeding mothers and people below the age of 18.
5-Methoxytryptamine - a compound naturally occurring in the human organism. Enriched in one acetyl group, it creates a hormone melatonin and it is structurally similar to serotonin. It is also known as mexamine.
Biological activity of 5-metoxytryptamine should be considered due to its structural similarity to serotonin. It is an agonist of serotonin receptors 5-HT1, 5-HT2, 5-HT4, 5-HT6 and 5-HT7. Because of this, it has stimulating influence on the functioning of the organism and increases the level of cyclic adenosine monophosphate in cells. Thanks to this, it stimulates metabolism and increases the effectiveness of stimulating catecholamines. Because of this activity, it is used in fat burners in order to maximize the pace of weight loss.
Some source also suggest the ability of 5-methoxytryptamine to promote cognitive functions.
Caffeine (1,3,7-trimethylxanthine, 1-methylotheobromine) is a purine alkaloid occurring in the natural state in plants (Coffea arabica, Camelia sinensis, Paulinia cupana, Ilex paraguariensis), which acts as a natural pesticide, acting toxic to insects. Peculiar smell and taste also deters herbivores. Caffeine in the body inhibits the adenosine receptors in the brain, fighting fatigue and allowing for action activation. It has a beneficial effect on the metabolism of oxygen, which increases the exercise capacity (strength and endurance) and rapid post-workout recovery. In the sports supplementation, caffeine is used as a stimulant nervous system. It has the thermogenic potential and in combination with other substances (e.g. Polyphenols, both occurring in coffee beans, such as cocoa beans, tea leaves and mate) can effectively participate in the reduction of body fat. It is included in many dietary stimulants (creatine stacks, no-boosters, beverages). It is a component of fat burners. It is also in the form of mono-preparation supplements.
Dosage: 100-600 mg per day. Due to the long release of activity should not be used in the evening, before sleep.
