If one thing puts me off a topic, it's dropping Yohimbine out of a U.S formula and expecting the NZ version to yeild the same effect. However, Im not really a fan of yohimbine myself, as it has quite a dark / gritty type of stim and frankly, I dont miss it, regarless of its effects on weight loss.
Another thing is random as sounding herbs, twigs and puppy dog tails with no explanation of what they are in for. This was the first conclusion I jumped to with this product. I was pleasently surprised to see that they have actually provided explanations to the ingredients:
AMLA FRUIT EXTRACT
Amla Fruit Extract is a natural source of Phyllemblin. Phyllemblin may help support an adrenaline rush resulting in an increase of cellular energy and mental alertness.
Phyllemblin may promote vasodilation, opening up the blood pathways into the muscles resulting in a temporary increase in overall muscle volume and contraction speed. *
WHITE WILLOW BARK EXTRACT
White Willow Bark Extract is a natural source of salicin. It is a traditional ingredient in diet and energy products, as it may help amplify the thermogenic effects of caffeine.*
Evodiamine is a plant extract that may support normal levels of fat storage, increase metabolism, and promote positive energy.* Evodiamine may also increase body heat production and raises resting core temperature, increasing the calories and fat that are burned for energy. Evodiamine is a mild diuretic.*
PASSION FLOWER EXTRACT
Passion Flower Extract is a natural plant extract that may help minimize anxiety, jitters, and 'the crash' traditionally associated with weight loss supplements.*
Caffeine is a powerful psychoactive stimulant. Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system, warding off fatigue and promotes increased alertness and energy levels.*
Sclareolide is a natural extract of the clary sage plant that may promote healthy levels of energy and lean muscle mass during weight loss. Sclareolide increases ATP conversion to cAMP, an intracellular messenger that expedites several cellular processes including lipid metabolism and thyroid production.*
N-Acetyl-L-tyrosine is a more rapidly absorbed and bio-available form of L-Tyrosine that is less prone to urinary excretion. L-Tyrosine is an amino acid precursor to the adrenal and growth hormones epinephrine, dopamine and norepinephrine. These hormones support HGH release.*
I'm taking this as a break from Detonate. I have 2 caps at once and honestly wasn't expecting a lot. I'm happy to report that the energy feels great, like actual get up and move energy (felt it most when driving to work this morning.. dat morning commute)
In regards to the appetite suppression, it's hard pressed to compete with Detonate but I managed to hold my fast out till 10am this morning - even by that stage I wasn't starving, but hungry enough to have some cereal and fruit.
This also really picked up my mood on the 3 occasions I've had it as well. Again, not to the same degree as detonate, but still worth mentioning.
This is a low low $49 on xplosiv at the moment and also comes free with HyperWhey. You cannot afford to pass up on a deal that good.
