Extended Release Energy Complex
We utilise a stimulant complex in Alpha Shred, which was designed to provide you with the energy & drive for you to attain you weight loss goals. This complex improves energy, mood, appetite suppression, metabolism & ignites thermogenesis; leading to greater fat loss and overall feeling of Alpha Shred and it’s mood enhancing properties.
Caffeine Anhydrous, no longer seen as merely a stimulant; studies have shown that it can increase energy expenditure as well as strength, endurance and anaerobic performance (I.e resistance training). Caffeine also increases focus, mental alertness and increase fatty acid oxidation
Juglans Regia is a psychoactive central nervous system stimulant which is used to enhance levels of both energy and mental alertness. This offered a much needed kick without resorting to synthetic chemical ingredients. Juglans Regia also has potent focus and mood elevating properties.
TeaCrine® is a patented form of Theacrine, which possesses a similar molecular structure to caffeine. TeaCrine is a pure alkaloid, which is derived from the leaves of the Camellia Kucha plant and like caffeine TeaCrine boosts energy, increases focus and elevates mood. TeaCrine however, differs as it doesn’t possess the side effects associated with caffeine, nor does it cause a tolerance build up usually experienced with long term caffeine consumption all whilst providing long lasting energy.
Theobromine is a methylxanthine compound found in cocoa. Theobromine is related to caffeine, however theobromine is not a central nervous system like caffeine. Theobromine has a high bioavailability and a longer half life than caffeine thus providing longer lasting energy. As Theobromine is found in chocolate it is touted responsible for the improved mood often associated with consumption.
KannaEase™ Is a patented extract of the South African herb Sceletium tortuosum. Kanna has traditionally been used for it’s mood enhancing properties, improving cognition, decreasing anxiety and stress relief. Kanna is a psychoactive herb with various bioactive constituents including alkaloids that increase monoamines like serotonin, dopamine and adrenaline. Kanna supplementation is associated with improved focus, mood enhancement and anti-anxiety. Kanna works as a selective PDE-4 inhibitor, thus increasing cAMP levels leading to the beneficial effects such as mood improvement, improved sense of well-being and increased energy.
Theophylline Anhydrous is a methylxanthine constituent of and naturally occurring in Green Tea. Theophylline is a PDE-4 inhibitor (like Kanna) and a adenosine receptor antagonist (like Caffeine & TeaCrine) and also increases cAMP. Theophylline Anhydrous works synergistically with caffeine and other components of Alpha Shred, providing a long lasting sustained release of energy and fat burning.
Isopropyloctopamine is a derivative of the alkaloid Octopamine, found in citrus aurantium. Isopropyloctopamine is a strong lipolytic agent, with a profound effect on freeing fatty acids to be used as energy. Studies have shown that even in low doses this fat loss alkaloid, Isopropyloctopamine demonstrated a potent fat burning capacity. The isopropyl form we use is considered superior, to octopamine; often seen in fat loss formulas. This inclusion further improves Alpha Shred’s thermogenic capabilities.
But, we didn’t just stop there.
Alpha Shred Thermogenic Complex
The second complex consists of numerous licensed branded ingredients at clinical doses, to take fat-loss to the next level, all of which are non-stimulant.
Mitoburn™ is a patented ingredient from NNB Nutrition and is based on the ingredient L-BAIBA. Firstly, a brief explanation of BAIBA and it’s role in the body. When we exercise compounds are released from skeletal muscle during muscular contraction, these compounds are known as myokines and are the body’s response to muscular stress. BAIBA is a myokine generated by the body in response to exercise stimulus and thus increased during physical activity. Research has shown BAIBA acts as a signalling mechanism for a myriad of physiological effects in the body such as thermogenesis and other related fat burning mechanisms. Early research also indicated that supplemental BAIBA _without_ exercise, could initiate the effects of exercise in terms of the body's physiological response to exercise in regards to thermogenic mechanisms; thus potentially mimicking exercise. BAIBA has been shown to impact the following metabolic processes such as
* Improved insulin sensitivity & glucose tolerance. * Increased fatty acid oxidation * Increased conversion of white adipose tissue to brown adipose tissue.
BAIBA was shown to positively impact the above and showed great promise, however it was found to be unstable and difficult to obtain the biologically active form, L-BAIBA as opposed to the inferior D-BAIBA or R-BAIBA. Enter MitoBurn, a stabilised, HPLC tested and verified form of the naturally occurring amino acid L-BAIBA. MitoBurn is a great addition to the formula, working synergistically with the next ingredient.
AfraLean® Grains of Paradise (Aframomum Melegueta) Seed Extract (std. to 12.5% 6-Paradol)
AfraLean® is a patented extract of Grains of Paradise seed, also known as Aframomum Melegueta. Aframomum Melegueta Is native to West Africa and belongs to the same family as ginger. AfraLean has the ability to convert white adipose tissue (white fat) to brown adipose tissue (brown fat). This is significant as brown fat is the fat stored that is not immediately needed by the body and white fat is the fat your body uses for maintenance of body temperature. AfraLean activates this brown fat, increasing thermogenesis leading to greater energy expenditure and eventually weight loss. Unlike many fat loss ingredients, AfraLean has been studied in humans demonstrating its effectiveness at fat loss and energy expenditure, interestingly all without any changes to diet or exercise in the subjects. AfraLean is ideal for those looking for improved body-composition and enhanced fat loss. As you can see, the positive affect of AfraLean on increasing the conversion of white adipose tissue to brown adipose tissue, this works in tandem with MitoBurn for a great synergistic combination.
ProGBB™ (Gamma-Butyrobetaine Ethyl Ester Chloride)
ProGBB™ also known as Gamma-Butyrobetaine Ethyl Ester Chloride is a licensed ingredient we use to further attenuate the effects of the formula. This patented form of Gamma-Butyrobetaine Ethyl Ester Chloride Or GBB is a carnitine precursor. Due to its affects, many have referred to this as “Super Carnitine” and be warned, it will increase sweating if taken prior to exercise. Supplementation with ProGBB will significantly increase plasma carnitine levels leading to increased benefits associated with carnitine supplementation and further yet; greater fatty acid transport. ProGBB allows the body to have optimal carnitine available and increases endogenous production in the body.
AstraGin® Is a licensed patented natural ingredient complex from NulivScience. This natural ingredient is comprised of highly purified and fractioned Astragalus membranaceus and Panx notoginseng extract shown to dramatically enhance nutrient bioavailability & absorption by supporting a favourable microbiome environment
The patented absorption enhancer developed by the Sabinsa corporation. This greatly enhances bioavailability of all of the aforementioned. Bioperine has been shown in clinical studies to improve bioavailability drastically.
3,5 Diiodo-l-thyronine is a derivative of thyroid hormone (T3) that exerts thyroid-like effects such as increasing the metabolic rate and increased energy expenditure. 3,5 Diiodo-l-thyronine Has a positive effect on uncoupling proteins (this causes energy release as heat) which has a profound effect on the metabolism. We use a optimal dose that will further amplify the rest of the formula.
