WHAT IS L-CARNITINE USED FOR?
L-Carnitine is considered a non-essential amino acid because, unlike essential amino acids, it is not used for protein synthesis nor as a neurotransmitter. Its main function is to help transport fatty acids into the mitochondria where they are burned as fuel for the body, producing the energy molecule ATP. ATP is a major source of energy for the muscles. Since L-Carnitine is not found in vegetable protein, vegetarians are more likely to be deficient in L-Carnitine than non-vegetarians.
HOW DOES GREEN COFFEE BEAN EXTRACT WORK TO AID WEIGHT LOSS?
Green Coffee Bean Extract serves as both a natural, safe weight-loss agent and is a powerful insulin stabilizer and antioxidant.
Green Coffee Bean Extract creates fat loss through mechanisms that are not based on over stimulating the nervous system, primarily through the insulin stabilizing action of the chlorogenic acid.
The green (raw) coffee bean contains high amounts of chlorogenic acid, but as soon as you roast the coffee beans you lose most of the chlorogenic acid and other beneficial polyphenolic (antioxidant) compounds.
WHY IS RASPBERRY KETONE IN CARNITINE BURN™
Raspberry Ketone is a phenolic compound found naturally occurring in red raspberries. This substance causes cells to release stored fat into the blood stream where it can be burned as fuel by the body. Raspberry Ketone increases “hormone sensitive lipase” which shrinks fat cells.
WHY IS GREEN TEA ADDED?
A recent clinical study showed that those who took Green Tea Extract three times a day burned more calories per day than those taking a placebo. This points to Green Tea being a safe thermogenic agent, gently speeding up the metabolism. Green Tea also works to stabilize blood sugar levels, which helps to prevent carbs from being stored as fat in the body.
WHY IS L-THEANINE ADDED?
L-Theanine is an amino acid derived from green tea leaves that promotes a calm and relaxed mood. Studies indicate that L-Theanine may encourage alpha brain wave activity, which is associated with mental calmness and relaxation. L-Theanine quickly raises serotonin levels in the body reducing agitation and calming the nervous system. When combined with caffeine, L-Theanine works to promote an alert focused mental state, without the jitters.
WHY IS VITAMIN B1 INCLUDED IN THIS FORMULA?
B-vitamins help the body convert food into fuel, which is used to produce energy and also help the body metabolize fats and protein. Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) plays a crucial role in certain metabolic reactions, and like L-Carnitine, your body needs it to form adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which every cell of the body uses for energy. This B-vitamin serves as a co-factor to the fat burning function of the formula.
WHY IS ASTRAGIN® INCLUDED IN THIS FORMULA?
AstraGin® is a patented extract of two herbs, Astragalus and Notoginseng, clinically shown to dramatically improve nutrient absorption in the body. The increased bioavailability of all the nutrients present in this formula makes it even more efficient at producing the desired effects of fat burning, and increased energy, endurance and recovery.
