Weight loss and fat control are huge industries,
and thermogenics products continue to be extremely popular - because
they work. These supplements contain Ephedrine, caffeine, and
other types of stimulants designed to increase your metabolic
rate, thus helping you lose a few pounds.
As the name suggests, thermogenics has to do
with temperature - these supplements raise your body temperature,
and the number of calories burned. Thermogenic fat loss products
have proven to be effective helping people lose weight; however
We included this article on thermogenics and
fat loss primarily because Xenadrine uses this thermogenics technology,
and there are some key issues with using thermogenic products
which you should know about.
Athletes, bodybuilders, and people from all
walks of life are pitched at with diet and weight loss products.
In recent years, Xenadrine RFA 1 appeared on the scene and gained 'superstar' popularity for the
weight loss results it was delivering, and recently, Cytodyne
came out with Xenadrine EFX promising even more weight loss with less side effects. Thermogenics
plays a key part in Xenadrine, helps with weight loss.
Thermogenic compounds tend to stimulate the
central nervous system, like caffeine and ephedrine. Like all
supplements/drugs, if not used responsibly, thermogenic products
can lead to abusive behavior. Short term use of these products
can produce excellent weight loss results; however, long term
use can lead to adapted tolerance to these substances leading
to little and/or no fat loss benefit. Worse yet, prolonged use
can lead to chemical dependence...
Studies have shown thermogenics to effectively
reduce fat when used for less than five to six weeks, after which
time, the effectiveness begins to disappear over the next four
to five weeks. With over eight weeks of continual use, tolerances
establish and you see very little weight loss improvements. At
this point, you should stop using such a product since it's not
going to do you much good. If you insist continuing using thermogenic
products, it's recommended you take some time off, then continue.
The use of Xenadrine has proven results in promoting
fat loss and weight loss. There's no doubt that Xenadrine works
effectively help you lose weight; however it's always a good idea
to consult your personal physician beforehand since this may not
be for everyone. If you have a few pounds you'd like to get rid
of, try Xenadrine. Do so responsibly.
Ephedrine Side Effects You Should Know
Ephedrine is derived from plants of the genus
Ephedra. It's most used to prevent attacks of bronchial asthma.
Ephedrine acts to relieve nasal congestion, and it can also raise
your blood pressure. Ephedrine comes from Ma Huang which is a
Chinese herb used medically in China for hundreds of years.
Ephedrine (Ephedra) side effects include: insomnia,
high blood pressure, stroke, heart attacks, restlessness, euphoria,
and there have been reported death with ephedra. Ephedrine triggers
a mild burst of energy, due to its similarity with epinephrine
(adrenaline). It can also increase the feeling of alertness (a
high), and reduced appetite.
A research conducted by New England Medical
Center found that in 926 reported cases of problems associated
with use of ephedrine (ephedra, or ma huang), there were 50 that
were heart related, 14 sudden deaths, 13 strokes, 9 heart attacks,
and 6 cases of rapid heart beats.
