Now for those of you hungry for knowledge and eager to learn more here is the detailed summary of the top 10 extracts for shredding and why. Enjoy!
Green tea extract:
The main health benefits of green tea extract are primarily due to its phenomenally high antioxidant content.
Green tea extract can also reduce stress which is a known cause of weight gain. Stress reduction can significantly assist fat reduction, a core benefit of the Green tea extract.
Green tea extract is also very rich in catechins, and it contains a good amount of caffeine. Interestingly, it seems that this combination of ingredients is responsible for its incredible weight loss properties and benefits.
It has been shown that catechins and caffeine can assist in weight loss by regulating the hormones that can enhance thermogenesis which is the process by which your body burns calories to digest food and produce heat.
Green tea has been shown to boost this process by making your body more effective at burning calories, which can lead to advanced and sustained weight loss.
Garcinia is a new age compound that although it has been around for some time has recently exploded in popularity for its weight loss capabilities!
Garcinia can support weight loss by giving a feeling of fullness, speeding up the body’s metabolism and increasing the amount of time to exhaustion thereby enhancing athletic performance and reducing fat, making it a premium addition to the blend and a sought-after compound that is highly effective when combined with the remaining key ingredients used in enhanced melt.
Green coffee is a product that is not only loaded with antioxidants but that can also produce a desirable weight loss benefit by boosting metabolism up to 11%. In addition to this, green coffee has been associated with decreased absorption or carbohydrates making it an exceptional two-pronged compound for fat loss, fat regulation and diet assist.
White kidney is known to many as a ‘carb broker’ and is an essential ingredient. White kidney works as a carbohydrate blocker that inhibits the digestion of starches such as pasta, bread, potatoes, and more. The enzyme inhibited is called ‘alpha-amylase’ which is responsible for breaking down starches.
Amazingly, white kidney bean extract only allows your body to digest small portions of the carbohydrate you eat allowing you to lose weight without significantly receding calorie intake.
White kidney throws a carb blocking element into the appetite suppression and reduction elements attributable to any blend in which it is included.
Carnitine is a potent fat burner due to the fact that it is responsible for the transport of fats into the cells to be used for energy in the body. By raising the level of muscle carnitine, one can support the fat burning process and as your body becomes more efficient at burning fuel, it will in turn increase energy levels.
Carnitine has also been shown to fight the hardest fat too loose, visceral belly fat. It does this by raised carnitine levels which in turn fight this fat specifically which, when reduced, has phenomenal impacts on overall fat loss and specifically stops the spread and compounding of fat around related areas including key organs including the liver and heart. A phenomenal benefit indeed.
Synephrine is a naturally occurring substance known as an alkaloid that’s found in plants. It’s chemically similar to the compounds found in many over-the-counter products and weight loss and energy supplements.
Synephrine impacts the adrenal system of the human body and increases basal metabolic rate, which accounts for up to 70% of your daily caloric expenditure.
Studies have shown that synephrine can speed up the metabolism, which contributes to fat loss and weight management.
L Tyrosine is a is an amino acid required for the syntheses of various proteins in the body. It is notable for being the precursor of the hormones released from the thyroid glands. The thermogenic effects of L tyrosine are due to the increased thyroid hormone synthesis it causes and as such it has become a powerful addition to many if the highest-grade shredding compounds on the market today
D-aspartic acid (D-AA) is an amino acid regulator of testosterone synthesis and acts on a stimulatory receptor.
Specifically D-aspartic acid works in the central brain region to cause a release of hormones, such as luteinizing hormone, follicle-stimulating hormone, and growth hormone and in turn is an exceptional shredding product used world wide.
We all know about caffeine and its amazing ability to stimulate the mind and suppers hunger! Rule of thumb with caffeine is too little isn’t enough, too much will not have a positive effect but just the right amount will hit that sweet spot required to not only the on the day but regulate hunger and wright too!
Ginko is amongst one of the oldest living tree species with Ginko Biloba being one of the most extensively used products for vitality and well being! But did you know it has very unique weight loss specificity too? Ginkgo biloba contains flavonoids, an antioxidant also found in green tea. Studies have shown green tea flavonoids produced weight loss elements desirable in healthy adults and for this reason Ginko is a key addition onto our list!
