Green Coffee Bean:
Green Coffee Bean contains a compound called Chlorogenic Acid. Chlorogenic Acid is a precursor to caffeine. It is a stimulant or a metabolism booster but it is not caffeine. Chlorogenic Acid is renowned for its ability to boost the metabolism. Of course as we all know metabolism is defined as the conversion of food and stored fat into energy for the body to use. People who are overly sensitive to caffeine can usually tolerate Green Coffee Bean because the Chlorogenic Acid is a milder boost than caffeine.
Green Coffee Beans also contain Caffeoyl Derivatives, Saponins and Polyphenols. Caffeoyl Derivatives are the main source of antioxidants. Saponins are bitter compounds that have certain anti-inflammatory characteristics.
Bitter orange (Citrus aurantium), also known as Seville orange, is a citrus fruit with a multitude of uses. One of the most common uses is as an herbal weight loss supplement, and as a flavor enhancement in exotic recipes.
Bitter Orange contains several potent compounds that are extracted to make dietary supplements. The plant compounds in bitter orange, (protoalkaloids) have been used for decades in supplements for weight loss, athletic performance, skin care, appetite control, and brain health, and even as an ingredient in perfumes. One of the main active compounds in Bitter Orange is synephrine. It has a similar structure to ephedrine and produces similar reactions as well. Synephrine is structurally similar to your flight-or-fight hormones, epinephrine and norepinephrine, which also increase your heart rate
Glutamic acid is an amino acid that is formed from breaking down protein in the body.
Glutamic Acid is the precursor for glutamine. The human body uses this for several different bodily functions. Glutamate is an excitatory neurotransmitter, meaning that it supports the nervous system at the cellular level, (it helps nerve cells in the brain send and receive information from other cells). Glutamic Acid is used by high performance athletes as a training supplement because muscles need glutamine to perform during exercise. Athletes use glutamine as a supplement to increase strength and speed.
Aspartic Acid is another amino acid that is naturally produced by the human body by breaking down protein. As a supplement Aspartic Acid is used for fatigue, athletic performance, and muscle strength/ development. Some athletes claim aspartic acid improves stamina. Aspartic Acid is a precursor for the production of testosterone. Testosterone is a hormonal stimulator. It is produced in the adrenal cortex, the testes in men, and also the ovaries for women. This may be why athletes use Aspartic Acid as a temporary booster.
