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.
