TrueTHERMO capsules contain a synergistic blend of ingredients specially selected to support a healthy metabolism and to aid the fat-burning mechanisms in the body. In addition, True Thermo has an energizing effect which can increase mental alertness and help maintain energy levels over a period of time.
Fat-burning involves the mobilization of fat stores to the muscle cellsí mitochondria (the energy production unit of cells) to be burned as fuel. For fat to be mobilized from storage, proper hormonal balance must be in place such as low insulin, high glucagon, as well as the proper balance of the stress hormone cortisol which causes destruction of muscle proteins at higher levels. Since muscle is the major fat-burning tissue of the body, any activity which destroys muscle fibers will damage fat-burning capacities. There are a host of biological processes involved in the fat-burning process, many which can be altered with exercise, proper nutrition and supplements.
TrueTHERMO contains ingredients to support this process through various mechanisms:
- L- tyrosine:
- Has an effect on fat metabolism.
- Tyrosine is an important building block for the production of the brain regulating hormones dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine integral to the body's fat-burning processes as well as its effects towards mood, cravings and energy levels.
- Necessary for the production of thyroid hormone which affects the metabolic rate of every cell in the body. Low levels of thyroid hormone may slow down the metabolic rate causing difficulties in losing weight, depression, anxiety, increased cholesterol levels, plus many other symptoms.
- Guarana and Yerba mate:
- The main ingredient of guarana, guaranine, is identical to caffeine.
- Yerba mate is also a mildly stimulating herb which contains caffeine.
- Caffeine impairs the appetite, which may aid the weight loss process.
- Caffeine is also a mild diuretic and encourages the release of fat into the blood stream to be burned as fuel (increases lipolysis or fat breakdown).
- Research has shown that using caffeine prior to a workout or walking will increase fat breakdown.
- Green tea extract:
- Recent research has found that catechins, the antioxidants in green tea, help increase fat-burning and reduce the risk of cancer, high cholesterol and diabetes.
- Green tea may lower blood sugars by inhibiting enzymes that allow the absorption of starches and may decrease the absorption of fat from the intestine.
- In addition, further studies have found that daily intake of green tea may result in weight loss without a change in diet or exercise.
- Coleus forskohli:
- The main active constituent responsible for the health benefits of coleus may be a compound called forskolin. Forskolin is responsible for triggering thermogenesis causing the breakdown of fat to be used as an energy source.
- Forskolin also stimulates the production of thyroid hormone, the modulator of a healthy metabolic rate, making it an excellent addition to a weight loss program.
- Hydroxycitric acid (HCA):
- HCA reduces the conversion of carbohydrates into stored fat by inhibiting certain enzyme processes.
- This process will result in suppression of appetite and promote weight reduction.
- HCA is not a central nervous stimulant and will not lead to any type of side effects.
