A powerful energy stimulating properties and it is also one of the most important ingredients in a fat loss product. That is why every product on the market puts it in their formulas. Very few manufacturers know why it is used and what else caffeine brings to the table as a key ingredient in a thermogenic product. The truth is that energy, alertness and concentration is just a part time job for caffeine; caffeine's full time job in a fat loss product is triggering adipocytes to release fatty acids into the blood stream so that the rest of the ingredients in the blend can wipe them out.
Caffeine is well known for its ability to increase your resting metabolic rate, thereby increasing lipolysis of subcutaneous fat cells. Most notably, caffeine has a synergistic effect by increasing the efficiency of the other thermogenic ingredients as well as the effectiveness of the overall blend. This isn't some watered down blend like other products use either, only the highest quality Pure Anhydrous, USP grade caffeine is used in Bliss.
A derivative of GABA that possesses the ability to increase mental focus and brain function.
Stimulates the release of norepinephrine, an excitatory hormone that energizes the body. In addition, hordenine is lipolytic, so it releases lipids from fat cells to be used immediately as energy.
N Methyl Tyramine:
A naturally occurring trace amine derived from the amino acid tyrosine. It acts as a neurotransmitter and regulates dopamine, norephinephrine, epinephrine, and noradrenaline levels in the human body to induce fat loss, increase glucose uptake, as well as elevate your mood.
Naturally contains a small amount of caffeine along with larger amounts of theobromine, the chief metabolite of caffeine. Other plant chemicals naturally occurring in cocoa include phenylethylamine, which increases focus and attention span as well as tyramine whose chemical structure parallels the neurotransmitter hormones epinephrine and norepinephrine.
A phytonutrient that inhibits the enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine, in doing so makes more acetylcholine available to stimulate neurons. This process increases focus and improves that "dialed in" feel we all know and love from Commander & Bliss.
A powerful nootropic compound to help enhance attention, memory and overall brain function. It increases the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, the primary neurotransmitter involved in muscle function.
Chemically similar to choline in that it increases alertness, focus and mental clarity.
A lipophilic compound derivative of thiamine that crosses the blood-brain barrier and plays key roles in enhancing nervous-system function and cognitive function by improving memory, focus and recall. Sulbutiamine also augments carbohydrate metabolism by increasing anaerobic muscle endurance during training so you can bang out more reps with every set and have more overall energy while you train.
Bacopa Monniera (50% bacopasides):
An herb with strong antioxidant properties that enhances focus and cognition as well as improves learning.
Beta Phenylethylamine HCL:
A chemical related to amphetamines and that elevates blood glucose levels resulting in an increased feeling of alertness and an overall sense of well-being. It does this by making the brain release specific endorphins that serve as the driving force behind feelings of pleasure and content.
Standardized for the catechin EGCG and has been shown to drastically increase the overall calories burned when paired up with caffeine, by increasing lipid oxidization; in addition, Green Tea Extract has both appetite suppressing as well as powerful antioxidant properties. The Green Tea used in Bliss is standardized at 45% EGCG, 75% catechins, 90% polyphenols – substantially stronger than the typical dose of Green Tea that many other products employ.
Coleous Forskohli (20% Forskolin):
Extremely important to the complex as it aids in releasing fatty acids into the bloodstream, but operates on a much different channel than caffeine. Coleous Forskohli targets the thyroid directly. The thyroid controls your metabolism. The faster your thyroid runs, the hotter your metabolism will be. Coleous Forskohli keeps your thyroid running at optimal levels to aid in weight loss.
A Chinese herb that has the capability of raising the body's core temperature, thereby elevating metabolism and reducing fat uptake. The synergy of these effects leads to elevated energy levels and increased lipolysis.
Comes from a Greek root meaning "to bite" and it certainly lives up to it's reputation – giving Bliss some bite with it's stimulant properties. It is an extremely potent antioxidant that thins the blood and reduces cholesterol and build-up within the blood vessels. It acts as a vasodilator allowing for increased blood flow during intense training or physical exertion.
Taraxacum Officinale Powder:
Also known as "dandelion root extract"; a very powerful diuretic to help prohibit the storage of excess water weight on the body. In addition it aids the liver and kidneys in eliminating toxins from the body.
A natural herbal stimulant has been shown to bump up your metabolism as well as elevate your core body temperature to a higher level and stimulate specific cell receptors to break down fat. More internal heat generated by your body increases your metabolic rate and literally helps your body melt more fat cells. In addition it delivers a nice, stable energy flow as opposed to the "crash" that you get from other over-hyped caffeine pills!
Green Coffee Bean Extract:
This research mirrors that of the effects of green tea, but with far greater potential. Green coffee bean extract contains two compounds – caffeine and chlorogenic acid. Caffeine you are already familiar with from above, in that it releases fatty acids from adipocytes. Consider chlorogenic acid, its partner in crime; Chlorogenic acid helps the liver become more efficient in processing the fatty acids, and when teamed up with caffeine has been shown in studies to reduce stored fat by as much as 25% over a period of 90 days.
Guarana Seed Extract:
An incredibly effective stimulant native to the Amazon basin in Brazil. It's potency comes from the fact that it contains about twice the concentration of caffeine as found in coffee beans. Because of this it has powerful cognitive effects as well as increasing memory retention and physical endurance. In combination with other herbs it takes on additional thermic effects and proves to be helpful with weight management as well.
A direct precursor to the thyroid hormones T3 and T4 and directly stimulates the thyroid to increase your basal metabolic rate.
Used by native people for years to increase energy levels and to treat the symptoms of low estrogen levels, hot flashes, mood swings and depression, as well as the symptoms of menopause. One rather notable bonus ... damiana is a potent aphrodisiac for the female body.
An adaptogen that works within the female body to normalize hormone function. Female hormone regulation is key to weight loss as it helps manage the symptoms that stand in your way as well as give you an overall sense of well-being while you are making lifestyle adjustments. Along with hormone regulation, it also helps minimize water-retention and mood swings, and has been shown to positively impact the female sex drive.
Useful for balancing blood sugar levels as well as stimulating a healthy nervous system and regulating metabolism. Being deficient in B-3 has been linked to slowing metabolism.
B-6 (Pyrodoxine HCL):
Responsible for many biological processes in the human body, most importantly proper neurotransmitter function and efficient food metabolism.
Aids with energy production, cell repair and the maintenance of our red blood cells. B12 plays an important role in cell metabolism. By improving your metabolic pathways you'll be able to reduce adrenal fatigue often experienced while dieting.
