Thermo Speed Hardcore is powered by a blend of eight standardized botanical extracts, plus tyrosine, caffeine and niacin, that support healthy levels of thermogenesis and feelings of energy and alertness.
Garcinia cambogia extract standardized to contain 60% hydroxycitric acid (HCA) – from the point of view of fat loss, the most desirable aspect of HCA is that it functions as a competing inhibitor for ATP citrate lyase enzyme, and, as a result, inhibits the synthesis of fat. Additionally, this compound is believed to decrease the level of sugar in the bloodstream and to decrease insulin levels.
Coleus forskholi extract standardized to contain 10% forskolin – forskolin's basic mechanism is to activate the adenyl cyclase enzyme, to increase the cyclical level of AMP (cAMP) and to activate related functions. Studies on humans show that in the case of obese people the activity of this enzyme is lowered. Taking Coleus forskohlii extract, standardized to contain 10% forskolin, two times a day for 8 weeks resulted in an 8% reduction of body fat. Additionally, forskolin is believed to stimulate the release of thyroid hormones that greatly influence basal metabolic rate and fat loss.
Cayenne pepper extract standardized to contain 8% capsaicin – increases the amount of heat produced in the body, at the same time slowing down the rate of fat synthesis in fat cells (adipocytes), thus inhibiting their growth.
Black pepper extract standardized to contain 95% piperine. This highly energetic active substance intensifies thermogenesis and the oxidation of the products of the breakdown of the fat tissue, and increases the metabolic rate. At the same time, research shows that piperine may increase the level of serotonine and beta-endorphins in the brain.
Green coffee bean extract standardized to contain 50% chlorogenic acid (CGA) – limits the range of the fluctuations of the glucose level by inhibiting its absorption from the intestine, resulting in limited secretion and prolipogenic effect of insulin. Additionally, it inhibits the accumulation of fat by decreasing its absorption in the intestine and limiting the effectiveness of liver metabolism.
Caffeine in its pure, waterless, crystalline form is absorbed much faster when crossing the blood-brain barrier, instantly stimulating the central nervous system, and quickly accelerating metabolism,
Ginger extract standardized to contain 5% gingerols – research shows that active substances contained in the extract, the most valuable of which are gingerols, may increase the rate of metabolism by up to 20%, this is possibly the result of the improved utilisation of oxygen in muscle cells which means that free fatty acids can be used better as a source of energy. Additionally, ginger increases the feeling of fullness after a meal, lowering the caloric intake during the day,
L-tyrosine – acts as a precursor for adrenaline and noradrenaline securing their level growth and the mental and physical activity thus helping to increase caloric expenditure. At the same time, as a precursor of cholecystokinin ("fullness" hormone), it may have a significant influence on limiting the amount of food eaten, thus lowering the caloric intake during the day.
Guarane extract standardized to contain 50% caffeine. This alkaloid acts as a stimulant, blocking the breakdown of cyclical AMP in a cell, and as such it may prolong the activity of catecholamines, such as adrenaline. It accelerates metabolism by increasing thermogenesis and caloric expenditure. Because caffeine contained in guarane is tied by cell elements, its release in the gastric tract is much slower, and the level of pure caffeine in the bloodstream is lower but lasts longer providing longer mental and physical stimulation.
