More about the ingredients:
This mega-powerful antioxidant has been given the credit for being one of the most intense, concentrated forms of an antioxidant for it’s size discovered up to now; and Lean & Hot delivers 1000mg in each serving! It is very similar to a blueberry in size, color, and taste; but in benefit, it compares to no other. It’s ability to neutralize the damage of free radicals that cause disease and speed up the aging process, is where is gets most of it’s praise. Some of the other major benefits of this miracle berry are:
Increases energy levels, Improves digestive function, Improves mental clarity/focus, Helps regulate sleep patterns, Cleanses and Detoxifies the body, Boosts immune system, Enhances sexual desire and performance, Slows the aging process, Promotes healthier and younger-looking skin, Helps regulate cholesterol levels, Helps maintain healthy heart function, Minimizes inflammation, Improves circulation, and Supports weight loss.
Ephedra Extract (active ephedra alkoloids)
The purest grade ephedra, containing 27mg of actual ephedra alkaloids in each serving. The scientifically proven ability of ephedra to help with weight control, weight loss, and increased intensity is unsurpassed. In this active form, it is the most effective weight loss supplement in history.
Pure Caffeine Anhydrous
This acts as a stimulant and thermogenic and is commonly taken to boost energy or mental concentration. It stimulates the central nervous system and the metabolism. Once metabolized, caffeine can increase lipolysis, or fat breakdown, in the body. It may also increase the effectiveness of other substances such as ephedrine (ephedra).
White Willow Bark Extract (salicin/acetylsalicylic acid)
White Willow Bark Extract (salicin)-which the body converts to salicylic acid when ingested. This active ingredient has a synergistic effect when combined with Ephedra to promote the thermogenic process. Thermogenesis is the rapid conversion of the food we digest into heat before the calories can be stored as fat. Aspirin (today’s version of salicylic acid) is very similar, actually made from a different salicin-containing herb, but works in the same way. Salicin has the same pain relieving medicinal effects as aspirin, but doesn’t have the common side effects of today’s aspirin (GI bleeding and discomfort). It is an effective addition to widely used herbal weight-loss supplements.
Synephrine – Citurs Aurantium
Synephrine, or Citrus Aurantium, is a well-known bronchial dilator, and is used medically to treat chest congestion and indigestion, stimulate gastrointestinal functions, and improve circulatory and liver functions. It’s regularly used in combination with diet pills and weight loss formulas since it increases the metabolic rate without affecting heart rate or blood pressure; thus, causing thermogenesis, which burns calories. It functions to burn fat, increase physical performance, and build lean muscle mass.
Acacia Rigidula is a rare, natural source of norepinephrine. The alkaloids from the Acacia Rigidula are biologically and physiologically similar to those found in ephedra, and possess properties that are shared with ephedra alkaloids. One such property is the ability to pass readily into the brain. The most powerful of these alkaloids is phenylethylamine. It is responsible for effects on mood, appetite and sense of well-being. It is one of the strongest and most effective thyroid stimulating compounds in the world. It has the ability to increase the metabolic rate by stimulating your thyroid gland and inducing a powerful thermogenic effect through the conversion of fats into heat. This compound is truly a scientific breakthrough in the world of fat loss and fat burning.
Clarity Complex—a combination of pharmaceutical grade compounds for brain health and mind focus:Gingko Biloba
Gingko has been used for many years for increasing vascular circulation to and throughout the brain and nervous system. The primary therapeutic property of ginkgo is to increase the flow of blood into areas previously deprived of this life-giving substance to one degree or another, including the brain, the lower limbs, all arteries, veins, even the smallest capillaries. Decreased blood flow to the brain can adversely affect memory, concentration, intellectual ability, vision, equilibrium and balance. It may also lead to symptoms such as headaches, depression, mental confusion. Stroke can occur because of lack of blood flow and oxygen to brain tissue. Ginkgo is used to prevent and even treat all of these conditions.
This herb is known for it’s ability to decrease forgetfulness, and improve retention of new information. It has beneficial effects on mental deficiency, Alzheimer’s disease, anxiety, depression, ADHD in children, and memory.
DMAE bitartrate increases mental cognition by boosting the levels of the chemical messengers choline and acetylcholine; both boost cognitive function and enhance memory. They also improve focus and attention by improving sleep and acting as a brain stimulant. For best results, DMAE should be used along with other mental cognition boosters such as gingko, ginseng, or choline. Ironically, gingko is already in Lean & Hot, so these two will work synergistically together to even further increase blood flow to the brain improving mental clarity and sharpness.
This is a lipid-soluble form of thiamine, or Vitamin B1. It functions exactly the same as B1, except, unlike B1, it is fat-soluble and therefore may be stored in the body. All B vitamins help the body to convert food to fuel. They also help the body to metabolize fats and protein. They are necessary for healthy skin, hair, eyes, and liver; and they also help the nervous system function properly (all associated with brain functionality and health). Vitamin B1 is considered the anti-stress vitamin because it strengthens the immune system and improves the body’s ability to withstand stressful conditions.
This is the coenzyme form of Vitamin B12, which is biologically active. This means that your body can use it as is, and does not require any metabolic steps to make it “body friendly”. Vitamin B12 is one of the B vitamins, functioning similar to benfotiamine (B1), playing an important role in energy production, maintaining a healthy nervous system (including mental health), and production of good DNA.
Vitamin B6, also called Pyridoxine is essential in the functioning of the nervous and immune systems, the body’s conversion of food to fuel, and the metabolism of fats and proteins. This B vitamin helps with depression, skin problems and hormonal changes that plague the aging. It helps the body make several neurotransmitters, chemicals that carry signals from one nerve cell to another. It is essential for normal brain development and function, and helps the body make the hormones serotonin and norepinephrine (which influence mood) and melatonin (which helps regulate the body clock).
Free Radical Shield—immunity and antioxidant blend:Green Tea
Green tea itself has been the drink of choice for centuries in many Asian countries. It contains chemical compounds called polyphenols, specifically epigallocatechin (ECGC), which act as powerful antioxidants. These antioxidants neutralize destructive free radicals (that can lead to cancer) and support cardiovascular health by preventing the oxidation of cholesterol. This helps to maintain the integrity of arterial cell walls. Using tea extracts allows for the standardization of the polyphenol content assuring a consistent concentration of these compounds is in each dose.
Grape Seed Extract
Grape seed extract is derived from the seeds of red grapes. It contains powerful flavonoids, which are phytochemicals that contain antioxidant properties. It’s vitality is compared to that of vitamins C and E in maintaining health. These flavonoids not only fight diseases and free radicals in the body, but they also improve circulation, which, in turn, improves heart function and cardiovascular health.
Pine Bark Extract
The use of pine bark extract originated from southwest France in the form of tea. Asian medicine has used it for centuries as an anti-inflammatory agent and powerful antioxidant. It boosts the effects of vitamin C while extending the time vitamin C remains in the body. It also improves circulation and increases oxygen in the blood, giving the user increased energy, clarity and a refreshed feeling.
Vitamin C has an antioxidant-rich reputation. It has reparative qualities when ingested and applied topically. It seems to do wonders for just about whatever it is used for. It fights free radical damage, both before it occurs and correcting damage that has already been done. It rejuvenates the skin, boosts the immune system, and adds vigor and energy to all cells of the body. It is water-soluble, so it must be ingested daily and it is highly bio-available. Supplementing your diet with this vital nutrient should be imperative.
