Fat burners work via a myriad of different actions: Pulling more fat from storage, boosting energy to burn more fat and reducing appetite are three. Supplement manufacturers often take advantage of this by including multiple ingredients to attack fat stores in different ways, making for a more successful overall fat-loss program. Consider the following ingredients when you’re looking for a product to support your next fat-burning cycle.
Caffeine anhydrous: This is the most effective form of the powerful stimulant we consume in coffee, tea and other beverages. In fact, research shows the anhydrous form of caffeine is more effective than the beverage form in increasing strength and fat burning.
N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine: The amino acid tyrosine helps the body produce crucial hormones and neurotransmitters, including epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine. The first two boost metabolic rate and break down body fat to be used as energy. Tyrosine also helps elevate mood, increase energy levels and boost sex drive. The N-Acetyl-L form is more quickly absorbed and bioavailable than other forms of tyrosine.
Huperzine A: This extract from the Chinese club moss plant, also known as toothed club moss, has a long history in traditional Chinese medicine as a fever reducer. Modern science has largely revealed the supplement’s role in enhancing brain function by preventing the breakdown of an important nerve stimulator called acetylcholine. The more acetylcholine you have, the more alert your brain is. This can be particularly critical when a diet has your attention flagging.
Yohimbine: The active ingredient in the bark of the West African tree Pausinystalia yohimbe works to reduce body fat by inhibiting specific receptors on fat cells that would otherwise limit the amount of fat that leaves cells and increase the amount of fat that is stored. By enabling the fat cells to release more fat, yohimbine enhances the amount of fat the body burns and decreases the amount of fat it stores. One study confirmed that yohimbine significantly reduced body fat in athletes in just three weeks.
