Lipophedrine fat burner ingredients
Lipophedrine contains 3 main ingredients, 2 of which are patented.
The main substance making up Glavonoid™ is glabridine, a polyphenol derived from licorice root.
Glabridine has the ability to reduce fat synthesis while increasing the activity of enzymes responsible for breaking down adipose tissue.
What’s more, this ingredient is said to inhibit the production of cortisol, a catabolic hormone which promotes fat mass to the detriment of muscle mass.
By inhibiting the release of cortisol, which is instead synthesized in the cells of the abdominal girdle, Glavonoid™ is said to have the particularity of stimulating fat melting there.
This ingredient is a combination of biopeptides and heme iron, designed by French laboratory LTEV (Laboratoire Technologique d’Extraction Végétale).
It consists of 22 amino acids and iron, and is said to act as a natural anabolic.
Among the amino acids present in Biaminoée™ are:
- Valine, named after the valerian plant.
It is involved in muscle metabolism, stimulates muscle growth, supplies energy to the body and acts on the sensation of hunger;
- Alanine, which stimulates blood glucose levels, and Glutamic Acid, also known as glutamate, which fights sugar cravings, helps metabolize fats and accelerates the burning of fatty tissue;
- Glycine, involved in the body’s sugar management process;
- Cysteine, a powerful detoxifier involved in fatty acid synthesis and fat burning;
- Methionine, a powerful antioxidant, anti-fatigue and anti-toxic agent, helps lower cholesterol levels and plays a role in lipid breakdown.
For more detailed information on this patented ingredient, we invite you to consult the following document: Biaminoée™, cellular health activator: extract from APB scientific report no.: Biaminoée 1127034.
3. Green tea:
Green tea contains 3-4% caffeine, as well as catechins.
This ingredient is now well known for its fat-burning properties, as it increases lipolysis and thermogenesis.
In addition, green tea raises levels of noradrenaline in the body, a hormone that increases metabolism and the fat-burning process.
Given its ingredients, Lipophedrine should have no side effects or contraindications.
Scientific studies on Lipophedrine
The 3C Pharma website mentions a study carried out by the Kaneka laboratory, the originator of Glavonoïd™.
The link available on the site leads to the laboratory’s official website, entirely in Japanese! Not a very readable piece of information!
Still, we managed to translate some of the information, and in particular that concerning a study carried out in 2012 on 80 people with a BMI of 24 to 30.
Different groups ingested different doses of Glavonoid™ (100 mg/day; 200 mg/day or 300 mg/day), in addition to a placebo control group.
The results of the study showed that people who consumed Glavonoid™ increased their muscle mass, as well as their basal metabolic rate.
These people also consumed more energy during physical exercise.
A measurement of oxygen consumption during exercise revealed that this ingredient increases lipolysis and could have greater effects if combined with long-term exercise.
Indeed, given that the muscle uses the oxygen at its disposal to produce energy through fat combustion, it is understandable that greater oxygen consumption would promote better utilization of adipose tissue.
Testimonials from Lipophedrine users
There are many testimonials from people who have tried lipophedrine for weight loss, with rather mixed results.
Some have observed moderate results, others mention changes at the start of the treatment and then nothing, while others report no weight loss at all.
However, consumers are unanimous in saying that the capsules are too big, and therefore difficult to swallow.
Lastly, it seems that lipophedrine works best when used in conjunction with a balanced diet and exercise regime, and can, in this context, help achieve weight loss, particularly in centimetres.
