Harness the power of Caffeine!
Caffeine has been shown to enhance fat-loss, maximize energy, sustain focus, & increase performance in aerobic & anaerobic events. It works in synergy with many other substances such as Choline and Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR). Caffeine is primarily used as a power focus, & energy booster. It’s perfect to optimize energy production of your body for more powerful workouts. This fast-acting substance delivers the right molecular structure to your energy systems for maximum energy & power output. Caffeine is fast-acting because it stimulates the central nervous system (CNS) so you’re neurologically charged to increased levels of alertness & focus.
What is the story on Caffeine?
Caffeine is a xanthine alkaloid compound that stimulates the central nervous system, temporarily increasing alertness. It is the most widely consumed legal psychoactive agent (a substance that affects brain functioning) in the nation. Caffeine is found in the beans, fruit or leaves of over 60 plants and therefore, some of the following listed: guarana berries, mat, chocolate or cocoa, Camilla sinensis (the leaves of this plant are used to make tea) or kola nut. Some of these plant-based sources of caffeine include other stimulants as well including theophylline and theobromine.
Caffeine Burns Fat
If you’re concerned about reducing your body fat percentage, caffeine can be your ally. Whether you’re at rest or at play, caffeine will increase the level of free fatty acids in your blood, thereby facilitating the use of fat as fuel. More than 20 years ago researchers at the Human Performance Laboratory at Ball State University in Indiana reported that test subjects exhibited up to a 100 percent increase in plasma free fatty acids after taking in 330 milligrams of caffeine. Research has also shown that caffeine increases the rate of fat oxidation, or use, during aerobic activities. In one study fat oxidation was 50 percent greater in participants who took five milligrams of caffeine per kilogram of bodyweight.
Caffeine Enhances Performance
The fat-mobilizing nature of caffeine not only augments your ability to burn fat, but it also improves your total aerobic capacity. During aerobic activities your body burns an abundant store of fat and a limited store of glycogen, or sugar. Once the glycogen in the active muscles has been used up, performance is greatly reduced. By taking in caffeine, you can increase the level of free fatty acids in your blood, which facilitates what’s known as a glycogen-sparing effect. Your body uses more fat as fuel, and the rate of glycogen depletion decreases, which delays the onset of fatigue and allows you to exercise longer.
