Use on an empty stomach and away from carbohydrates should provide the best results. Value drink large amounts of water during supplementation.
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.
Synephrine is an organic compound from harvested on an industrial scale the fruit of bitter orange (Citrus aurantium). Citrus auratuim extract (extract of bitter orange) is widely used in the process of weight reduction, both among athletes, active individuals, as well as leading the so-called. "sedentary lifestyle". It is a source of synephrine and octopamine, which in combination with caffeine and polyphenols contained in green tea affect lipolysis, releasing fatty acids adipocytes, by causing increased energy expenditure, burning them in the sources of vital energy cells (mitochondria). It is popular on the banning of ephedra by WADA (dangerous for the body). Contraindication to use preparations against people with hypertension. In the sports supplementation is available in body mass reduction and sculpting programs, as a thermogenic, creatine stacks and nitrogen boosters ingredient.
Dosage: No standards unit consumption. In the supplementation - customarily - 10-30 mg
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.
Yohimbine is a natural component of the indole alkaloid yohimbine, ingredient of bark of yohimbe (Corynanthe yohimbe), a recognized aphrodisiac and increasing potency mean. It stimulates the nervous system by blocking the adrenergic receptors alpha-2. Tree bark of yohimbe is also a source of alkaloids (isoyohimbine, aloyohimbine), which can enhance its performance. With the right dosage, taken with caffeine on an empty stomach and a longer period before taking a meal, it enhances the process of lipolysis due to increased levels of norepinephrine in the body.
In the sports supplementation it helps to reduce body fat (especially in programs of weight control and its composition), taken before physical activity. It comes in the form of mono-preparation supplements, extracts from yohimbe tree bark, synthetics and in supplements with thermogenic effect. Available for purchase at muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: No specific dosage standards. Some sources give optimal dose of 0.2 mg / kg of body weight (usually used at 5-10 mg per day).
Evodiamine is an alkaloid with thermogenic and stimulating effect, allowing for faster burning of lipids, with an action similar to capsaicin. Source of evodiamine is plant of the family Rutacea. In the sports supplementation, its thermogenic potential is used in the combination with caffeine and green tea, as part of enhancing body fat reduction, improveing the body composition and aesthetics. It is also used by people with low physical activity in the weight loss process. It is a component of stimulating supplements (boosters and pre-workout creatine stacks)
Yerba Mate extract - from the leaves of yerba mate (ilex paraguariensis), a drink popular in South American countries. The extract contains caffeine (as metaine) and is a powerful antioxidant. Teas and extracts of Yerba Mate leaves are slimming by causing a feeling of satiety and fat absorption, increase immunity of DNA through the binding of free radicals, reduce LDL cholesterol levels.
In the sports supplementation, the ursolic acid contained in the yerba mate, may be important, as it is an aromatase inhibitor, capable of lowering estrogen levels of men, thereby affecting the aesthetics of the figure. Yerba mate extract is a component of fat burners. In combination with green tea, bitter orange and black pepper (piperine) it increases thermogenesis.
Dosage: the lack of standards for daily consumption.
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).
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.
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.
Theophylline is a natural compound from the group of methylxanthines, which is currently obtained also in a synthetic way. In natural conditions, theophylline can be also found in i.a. tea leaves and cocoa beans.
It has anti-inflammatory and relaxing effect, therefore as a drug it finds application in the treatment of asthma. In case of theophylline - as an ingredient of dietary supplements - the mechanism based on inhibiting the activity of phosphodiesterase is the most important here - an enzyme responsible for cAMP breakdown. Theophylline, by being an inhibitor of this enzyme, contributes to the increase of intracellular concentration of cyclic AMP, at the same time increasing thermogenic and lipolytic processes and increasing the ability to concentrate as well as reducing the feeling of fatigue.
Therefore, theophylline demonstrates similar activity to caffeine, additionally positively influencing respiration and improving blood flow through kidneys. These properties makes theophylline a valuable ingredient of fat burners and pre-workout supplements.
