XFB AM is a thermogenic formula to promote energy, fat loss, and lean muscle appearance. It's perfect for anyone who wants to decrease their appetite and lose weight. XFBAM provides a premium blend of natural ingredients formulated to promote thermogenesis (fat burning), appetite control, and increased energy levels. The key ingredients in XFB AM work as follows:
Sclareolude: This is a fermented sage compound (derived from Salvia sclarea, and sometimes called Sclareolude or Norambrolide) which activates the enzyme adenylate cyclase involved in the generation of a cellular messenger called cAMP (cyclic adenosine monophosphate). The significance of this is that cAMP is involved in activating cellular enzymes and other substances that help move fat out of the fat cells and promote the weight loss process. Sclareolude bypasses the adrenal glands, increasing cAMP levels directly without stimulant effects. The result is a safe and effective, natural ingredient for weight loss. Sclareolude activates a key enzyme responsible for increasing metabolic rate and the release of fat from fat cells.
Hoodia Cactus Leaves: Hoodia has traditionally been consumed by South Africans for endurance and to suppress hunger. Research on obese rats demonstrated that Hoodia caused up to a 50% decrease and appetite and a 15% decrease in glucose (blood sugar) levels. In addition the rats' body weight dropped significantly, and there was greater than a 50% decrease in fat. Furthermore, there were no negative side effects.
Proprietary Thermo Blend: This blend provides Green Tea and Yerba Mate. The Green Tea and Yerba Mate both contain caffeine, which helps promote the natural thermogenic process of burning fat for energy fuel, as well as helping to control appetite. In addition, in at least two clinical studies, Green Tea has been shown to successfully promote weight loss in overweight individuals. This was not strictly a function of Green Tea's caffeine content, but rather of its collective compounds.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine: Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) is a source of precious acetyl groups which combine with coenzyme A (the metabolized form of the vitamin pantothenic acid) to create Acetyl-Coenzyme A (A-CoA). The A-CoA acts within the Krebs cycle helps to generate ATP and increase endurance. Clearly increased endurance is a benefit for exercising which will help promote weight loss.
Ginger & Cayenne: Research indicates that ginger (particularly the gingerol contained therein) is highly thermogenic. The mechanism of action seems to be that ginger induces the muscle tissue to consume more oxygen which is necessary for burning fat as a source of energy fuel. Likewise, cayenne's constituents have been shown to have thermogenic properties, as well as effecting metabolic rate.
