METABOLISM SUPPORT – FAT METABOLISM SUPPORT
DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR THE FEMALE HORMONAL SYSTEM
When it comes to burning fat, most fat burners forget that a woman’s metabolism and hormonal system is different than a man’s. A woman’s unique biochemistry is a balance of multiple hormones that affect her energy, workout performance and ability to burn off fat. Ripped Femme METABOLISM SUPPORT is the first fat burner supplement that’s truly formulated for a woman’s unique endocrine system. It delivers clinically researched dosages of key fat-burning ingredients, including indol-3-carbinol, red pepper extract, green tea extract, caffeine, olive leaf extract, vitamin B12, and a supportive dose of L-carnitine tartrate.
What Makes METABOLISM SUPPORT Unique?
METABOLISM SUPPORT is formulated with two unique complexes that work to support optimal female fat metabolism. Unlike other fat burners that only solve part of the problem, METABOLISM SUPPORT works to balance out the female hormonal system, unlocking estrogen’s hold on your fat-burning potential and allowing you to burn off more fat.
Estrogen Metabolism Complex: The Estrogen Metabolism Complex provides a clinically researched dose of indol-3-carbinol to help reduce harmful levels of estrogen and unlock the female body’s fat-burning potential.
Fat Metabolism Complex: The Fat Metabolism Complex delivers five key fat-burning compounds including sweet red pepper extract, caffeine, green tea extract, olive leaf extract and vitamin B12 to support increases in thermogenesis and metabolic rate. These compounds have a synergistic effect on fat burning when combined. In addition, a supportive dose of L-carnitine is included to support fat metabolism since women have significantly lower total carnitine levels than men. L-carnitine is essential for fat loss as it shuttles long-chain fatty acids, such as triglycerides into the mitochondria, where they can be oxidized (burned off) to produce energy.
HOW DOES METABOLISM SUPPORT WORK?
METABOLISM SUPPORT works by promoting estrogen metabolism and a healthy balance of estrogen in the body, while supporting fat metabolism through increased thermogenesis. When estrogen levels are high, the result is metabolic shutdown. Excess estrogen blocks fat-burning receptors from activating fat metabolism and the burning of fat as fuel. METABOLISM SUPPORT delivers key ingredients to lower estrogen load and ignite fat metabolism via multiple pathways!
SCIENCE BEHIND THE METABOLISM SUPPORT INGREDIENTS
Estrogen & Fat Metabolizer Complex:
Indol-3-Carbinol: Indol-3-carbinol is a unique compound isolated from cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, and it has been shown to have a positive effect on estrogen metabolism, neutralizing harmful estrogen metabolites and balancing the ratio of estrogen in the body.
Fat Metabolism Complex:
Sweet Red Pepper Extract: Sweet red pepper extract is a non-pungent (non-spicy) cultivar of red pepper and contains three known capsaicinoid-like substances that can boost fat burning: capsiate, dihydrocapsiate and nordihydrocapsiate. Sweet red pepper extract can enhance core body temperature, oxygen consumption, uncoupling proteins 1 and 2 (UCP1 and UCP2) and even gene transcription of UCP2 mRNA in fat tissue!
Caffeine: Caffeine has a synergistic effect when combined with other fat-burning ingredients. It blocks the action of phosphodiesterase (PDE), an enzyme responsible for the breakdown of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP). Stopping the breakdown of cAMP results in a prolonged effect of cAMP-dependent pathways, which include regulation of glycogen, blood sugars and fat metabolism. Further to that, prolonging cAMP’s actions increases the release and mobilization of fat from fat cells, allowing them to be burned off during exercise or even while at rest. Increased cAMP activity also results in greater release and availability of norepinephrine, one of the key hormones involved in fat burning!
L-Carnitine L-Tartrate: Carnitine plays a key role in fat metabolism in the body and helps shuttle fat to the powerhouse mitochondria to be burned off as fuel. Carnitine levels are lower in women; therefore, increasing carnitine via supplementation can help increase carnitine levels and support fat metabolism in the female body.
Green Tea Extract: Green tea extract has a twofold effect when it comes to female fat burning. The active compound, EGCG, can help stimulate thermogenesis and norepinephrine release. Green tea extract can also help decrease the aromatization of “bad” estrogen. High levels of estrogen can block fat burning in the body, but green tea’s positive effects can help lower estrogen load and elevate fat burning.
Olive Leaf Extract: Olive leaf extract provides the active compound oleuropein, which has a direct effect on UCPs, upregulating its effects in brown adipose tissue and increasing the expression of the fat-burning hormones norepinephrine and epinephrine.
Vitamin B12: Vitamin B12 is an important energizing vitamin, which helps the body metabolize carbohydrates and fats. Vitamin B12 is also involved in the production of red blood cells, which carry oxygen to muscles during workouts. Low levels of vitamin B12 have been associated with hormone imbalances in the body, not to mention fatigue and depressed mood.
