Clinical Research

Past and present clinical trials that researched the effect of specific chemicals, occurring naturally in various food/plant sources, on specific biochemicals partly responsible for fat metabolism and energy expenditure have concluded the following:


Green Tea Extract (95% Polyphenols)

Increased the action of Noradrenaline and the potential to increase fat loss. Dulloo, et,al,,1999. Dulloo, et,al,,2000

Combining polyphenols with caffeine may increase the action of Noradrenaline alone. Dulloo, et,al, 1999. Dulloo, et,al, 2000

Recent studies indicate that a green tea extract can increase thermogenesis and promote fat oxidation beyond that explained by its caffeine alone (Dulloo, et al., 1999). Thermogenesis and fat oxidation are controlled by the sympathetic nervous system and its neurotransmitter norepinephrine (NE). The catechin polyphenols found in green tea act to inhibit catechol-O-methyl-transferase (the enzyme responsible for degrading NE) (Dulloo, et al.,) resulting in a prolonged effect of NE on thermogenesis and fat metabolism (Dulloo, et al., 1999).


Chromium chelate

Chromium is an essential trace mineral required for normal protein, fat, and carbohydrate metabolism. Research shows that the typical diet is low in chromium, and that chromium supplements can often help control blood sugar. The correct regulation of blood sugar can assist in promoting weight loss.


Caffeine (Extracted from Guarana)

Inhibits Adenosine (camp) to create lyptopic (fat burning) and metabolic boosting via the actions of Noradrenaline. Colker, C Cur thir res res.. 60.

Early research by David Costill in the late 1970's suggested that caffeine increases levels of epinephrine (pronounced ep-in-eff-rin) (Costill, et al., 1978), serving to increase the number of fat calories burned for energy. In fact, there is evidence that caffeine can increase the number of fat calories used for energy by around 30% (Spriet, 1995). Because the muscles have more fat to use, carbohydrate metabolism is reduced. Specifically, increases in muscle citrate, acetyl-CoA, and glucose-6-phosphate act to inhibit phosphofructokinase, pyruvate dehydrogenase, and hexokinase, respectively.

Although many individuals believed that coffee or tea will have the same effect, there is evidence suggesting that coffee does not offer the same beneficial effects as caffeine (Graham, et al., 1998). It appears that some component of coffee interferes with the performance enhancing effects of caffeine. This isn't surprising, considering that when coffee beans are roasted, ground, and extracted in hot water, there are literally hundreds of other compounds dissolved along with caffeine.
