I have heard about a very effective natural fat loss alternative to losing body weight without having to go to the doctor for perscription drugs that has bad side effects. I think it comes from oranges, but I am not sure. I have heard your fat loss supplement contains it. What is it?
In Australia, 50% of women and 66% of men are regarded as overweight, with this figure increasing everyday. Excessive consumption of dietary Carbohydrates because of misleading dieticians, processed and fast foods have increased Obesity to an all time high - Simple Sugars such as Glucose and Sucrose plus high glycemic foods have especially exacerbated Obesity (by substituting for dietary Fats and body fat in the body's production of Energy). Dietary Carbohydrates that are not used in the production of Energy are eventually stored as body fat. To think around 400g of human body fat contains 3,500 calories, a whole day’s eating! Reversing this trend is no easy job and that’s where supplements that enhance fat loss come into play. The fat loss supplements contain ingredients which aid your body into using stored fat for energy. It has been scientifically proven that the most powerful fat loss supplement is one that increases the Thermogenesis of the body. Heat can be quantified using a variety of physical units of measure, one of which is the calorie. Thermogenesis is the term used to describe the "burning" of calories from fat stored in your body to increase body temperature and provide Energy to the body. It has been found that a substance called Synephrine can increase the Thermogenesis of our body quite effectively. Synephrine is a constituent of Citrus aurantium, also known as Bitter Orange. It comes from the peel of Oranges. But before you go eating orange peel; The quantity of Synephrine in the parts of Oranges normally eaten is almost negligible (i.e. approximately 0.000001%). Therefore it is usually necessary to purchase Citrus aurantium supplements (standardized in terms of their Synephrine content) in order to obtain any meaningful quantity of Synephrine.
How does Synephrine work?
Thermogenesis is the generation of heat, especially by physiological processes. In the human body, thermogenesis occurs primarily by a series of chemical reactions in which carbon dioxide and water are produced from fat . The reactions liberate thermal energy (heat) - some of which is dissipated to the outside world, along with the carbon dioxide and water. This loss occurs mainly via our lungs, skin, and excretory systems. Synephrine increases Thermogenesis in our bodies therefore increasing the rate at which our body uses fat as energy. An increase in Thermogenesis goes “hand-in-hand” with increasing the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). It has also been found that adding caffeine and salicin to Synephrine, amplifies its effects and keeps it working longer. Extreme Cuts 750 is a fat loss supplement that has the highest allowable levels of Synephrine per capsule, plus it has also caffeine and salicin. The formula uses standardised herbal extracts to provide natural active ingredients. Synephrine is obtained from Bitter Orange while caffeine is obtained from the herb Guarana. Salicin is obtained from the Salix alba herb and is also known as willow bark. Further enhancement of these three fat burning ingredients comes from the addition of two amino acids, phenylalanine and tyrosine.The combination of these ingredients makes this formula the most potent fat loss supplement in the world with added health benefits.It has a 100% money back guarantee for quality, purity and performance
On the Xtreme Cuts and Xtreme Energy label it has a warning about Phenylketonurics and to seek medical advice if symptoms persist. What is Phenylketonurics and should I be concerned about it?
Phenylketonurics or Phenylketonuria (PKU) is a genetic disorder that is characterized by an inability of the body to utilize the essential amino acid, phenylalanine. Amino acids are the building blocks for body proteins. 'Essential' amino acids can only be obtained from the food we eat as our body does not normally produce them. In 'classic PKU', the enzyme that breaks down phenylalanine, phenylalanine hydroxylase, is completely or nearly completely deficient. This enzyme normally converts phenylalanine to another amino acid, tyrosine. Without this enzyme, phenylalanine and its' breakdown chemicals from other enzyme routes, accumulate in the blood and body tissues. Although the term 'hyperphenylalaninemia' strictly means elevated blood phenylalanine, it is usually used to describe a group of disorders other than classic PKU. These other disorders may be caused by a partial deficiency of the phenylalanine breakdown enzyme or the lack of another enzyme important to the processing of this amino acid. A normal blood phenylalanine level is about 1 mg/dl. In classic PKU, levels may range from 6 to 80mg/dl, but are usually greater than 30mg/dl. Levels are somewhat less in the other disorders of hyperphenylalaninemia. Chronically high levels of phenylalanine and some of its breakdown products can cause significant brain problems. Classic PKU is the most common cause of high levels of phenylalanine in the blood. Classic PKU and the other causes of hyperphenylalaninemia affect about one of every 10,000 to 20,000 Caucasian or Oriental births. The incidence is declining and in African Americans it is far less. These disorders are equally frequent in males and females. PKU and the other causes of hyperphenylalaninemia are inherited in a recessive fashion. This means an affected person inherited two traits for the disorder (e.s., one from each parent). A person with one trait for the disorder, is called a 'carrier' for PKU. Carriers do not have symptoms of the disorder. By law we must state this disorder on the container if the supplement contains phenylalanine, even though a very small amount of the population may have this genetic defect. If you have not got PKU, then disregard the warning on the label.
I have found when I take Xtreme Cuts, my trips to the toilet increase. ( Makes me pee more.) Is this normal and should I be worried about this?
In some people it may be normal and you have nothing to worry about. One of the effects of taking Xtreme Cuts is that it increases your metabolism and the rate in which you burn body fat. One of the main by-products of fat metabolism is carbon dioxide and water. The carbon dioxide is expelled through your lungs while the excess water produced can be expelled either through your skin as sweat or be transported into your bladder to be excreted as urine. Because of the increase in energy expenditure you also have an increase in by-products resulting from the burning of those calories. This can increase the number of trips to the toilet. It is totally natural and there is nothing to worry about. But remember any fluids that are lost also contain electrolytes. We recommend while on Xtreme Cuts to keep your fliud and electrolyte levels up. This can be easily done by having a small drink of NANO HPC during exercise.
