The supplement is recommended to people, especially in the final phase of weight loss. Dietetic regime is very important and it also encompasses calorie deficit. The preparation should be taken in the morning hours, away from carbohydrate meals, as the substances contained in the product causing the secretion of catecholamines taken in the afternoon-evening hours may cause sleep problems and insulin spike may has inhibiting effect on the initiated process of lipolysis.
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.
Senegalia Berlandieri is a source of numerous alkaloids, among which the most numerous are: N-methyl-N-phenylamine, tyramine and phenylethylamine. Similarly to Acacia Rigidula, Senegalia Berlandieri promotes the required growth of energy and mood improvement, which it owes to its influence on increasing the level of dopamine and adrenaline in the organism. Senegalia Berlandieri extract also intensifies lipolysis and stimulates metabolism.
Phenylethylamine derivatives (PEA) contained in the extract of this plant are responsible for the effect of good mood (they stimulate the secretion of serotonin and dopamine), cause positive attitude to life and increase the willingness to act.
Thanks to its properties stimulating the nervous system, optimizing well-being and intensifying lipolysis, the extract from Senegalia Berlandieri is the component of many extremely effective and strong pre-workout boosters, at the same time being an effective DMAA substitute.
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
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.
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.
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)
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.
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.
EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) - a compound occurring naturally in the leaves of green tea and sage nutmeg. Powerful antioxidant resulting in removing free radicals out of your body. It has the thermogenic potential (enhanced when combined with other substances including caffeine, capsaicin, etc.), allowing a faster fat reduction. Affects preventively in the side effects of the glandular hypertrophy (prostate) and male pattern baldness. Recommended for those who are active physically and professionally, for the maintenance of body composition and body aesthetics. It is a component of fat burners, allowing for faster slimming.
Dosage: 50-500 mg per day.
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.
