L-ARGININE: L-arginine is a semi-essential amino acid that aids in weight loss by burning excess fat & improving muscle mass. It aids in the formation of nitric oxide and nitric oxide, has the following implications on obesity and metabolic health: It increases the activity of AMPK, a protein that controls energy balance. It decreases the expression of genes that favor the production of fats and glucose. It increases the sensitivity of hormone lipase that facilitates the breakdown of fats. It increases the activity of biological molecules that favor the burning of fat by brown fat tissue. Arginine acts on a genetic level to inhibit fat deposition. Apart from overall fat loss arginine is found to specifically get rid of abdominal fat. Arginine works well in combination with other amino acids to reduce weight. A study shows that arginine and caffeine combination strongly prevents fat deposition.
DAMIANA: Has appetite suppressant effects, encourages loose stools which helps promote internal cleansing. Damiana combined with Guarana produces thermogenic activity to burn calories.
GUARANA: guarana promotes weight loss by mobilizing stored fat and burning it up as energy to fuel the increased activity of its stimulant and thermogenic effects. It serves as a diuretic and promoting the elimination of water from the body (note: this is beneficial for someone who suffers from Edema which is water weight gain) appetite suppressant.
HORNY GOAT WEED: helps build muscle mass and burn fat. WARNING: Horny goat weed must be avoided by individuals who are already taking medications for treating high blood pressure as well as those that slow down blood clotting. Taking a med for high blood pressure together with horny goat weed can cause dangerously low blood pressure. Horny goat weed slows blood clotting so taking anticoagulant or antiplatelet drugs with horny goat weed can cause bruising as well as excessive bleeding.
GREEN COFFEE BEAN EXTRACT: Green coffee bean contains polyphenols, including chlorogenic acid, which, like grape seed extract and green tea, have antioxidants that help the body neutralize harmful free radicals. Research has also shown that the chlorogenic acid in green coffee bean promotes normal blood pressure. Chlorogenic acids support the weight loss benefits of green coffee beans in a couple of different ways. First, it promotes balanced blood sugar by inhibiting the release of glucose within the body. Secondly, chlorogenic acids boost the metabolic output of the liver, which burns fat. This dual mechanism works to support lean body mass by hindering the absorption of fat and weight gain.
Green Tea Leaf Extract: Clinical studies suggest that green tea extract may boost metabolism and help burn fat. One study confirmed that the combination of green tea and caffeine improved weight loss and weight management. Some researchers speculate that polyphenols, specifically the catechins, are responsible for the herb’s fat-burning effect.
CAFFEINE: Caffeine plays an important role in freeing up the fat cells from its storage units. This process is called Lipolysis, which allows these fats to be used for energy, instead of piling up in your body. Along with that, Caffeine also increases the rate of metabolic burn that is present during weight loss, which is called the thermogenic effect. This helps in better burning your calories. Caffeine is a diuretic agent, which can flush out the water through urine or sweat, which can be a temporary way to lose weight. Caffeine stimulates the metabolism.
Glucuronolactone: Boosts metabolism
