Thermogenic Potentiator Alpha Cuts® is a thermogenic fat burner in powder form. Designed to be both a fat mobilizer and a pre-workout energy-producing supplement that works by triggering lipolysis (fat emulsifying) and increasing mental alertness and physical performance.
Alpha Cuts® works in several different pathways due to it's unique formulation and effectiveness. High potency, purity and a perfect balance of ingredients makes it a great choice for fat burning and pre-workout energy. One scoop a day is all you need!
The Alpha Cuts® formula
Clarinol®, Conjugated Linoleic Acid Only CLA found in Clarinol® can boast the most in-depth and up to date scientific studies that confirm Conjugated Linoleic Acid as a leading “fat melting” fatty acid.
CLA is an improved form on Linoleic Acid, an Omega-6 fatty acid extremely important to our health. It’s well known for it’s anti-catabolic effects on human muscle tissue along with being a potent anti-oxidant.
CLA helps in naturally lowering cholesterol and triglycerides, increasing basic metabolism and boosting your immune system. It inhibits the activity of the enzyme lipoprotein lipase (LPL). LPL transfers fats from the bloodstream to the fat cells and consequently the transport of fat into fat cells is blocked. At the same time CLA also stimulates the breakdown of stored body fat (lipolysis)
CLA increases the activity of the enzyme CPT (Carnitine Palmitoyltransferase). This unique form of Carnitine is present in muscle tissue and is responsible for the transport of fatty acids into the mitochondria where energy production takes place. Fat can now be used as fuel for energy production. With an increased activity of CPT in the skeletal muscle, CLA increases the transport of fat into the mitochondria where it can be used to full benefit.
L-Tyrosine is a multi-functional free form amino acid that has several different benefits to athletes. The two main reasons for inclusion in the Alpha Cuts® formula are 1) Cognitive and focus factors. This amazing amino acid has been reported time and again to increase motivation before exercising, alleviate depression and create an overall sense of well being. L Tyrosine is often called the ultimate mood enhancer. It is also the precursor of several neurotransmitters, including L-dopa, dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine. 2) Thermogenic effect. When administered orally L Tyrosine acts quickly in raising metabolic rate therefore burning more calories when you are at rest. Taken before exercise it will greatly boost your metabolism even more and places your body in an optimal state to burn more subcutaneous body fat.
Taurine is an an amazing amino acid pure and simple. It is an anti-oxidant and physical performance enhancer. It helps the body digest food, especially fats in a particular way by metabolizing fat cells, making them readily available for energy production.
Glucuronolactone Several diverse studies suggest that glucuronolactone can increase mental performance in addition to physical performance. Often noted in these studies are improvements in reaction time, concentration and short term memory. ALPHA CUTS® uses the highest quality grade of glucuronolactone to ensure that all these effects are maximized, not the least of which are it’s impressive abilities in utilizing body fat stores in energy production.
Synephrine Hydrochloride is present due to its appetite suppressant qualities and effects on overall metabolism. It is known to increase the metabolic rate by increasing lipolysis and basal metabolic rate (calories burned at rest) and has the ability to stimulate fat loss .
Higenamine HCl is another integral part of ALPHA CUTS®. It is a catecholamine-like structure that interacts with the same class of receptors that the fat burner Synephrine does. It works by stimulating the activity of specific enzymes that boost the fat-burning effects and activity of chemical messengers involved in the metabolic process of burning fat tissue. It is this stimulant effect that causes your basic metabolic rate to increase and oxidize more fat.
Alpha-Hydroxy-Isocaproic Acid also known as HICA a natural metabolite of the amino acid Leucine. It’s pathway leads to the formation of a key element in creating an anti-catabolic state: Leucic Acid. HICA works by increasing both protein synthesis (anabolic effect), and decreasing muscle tissue breakdown. Leucic Acid may also activate IGF-1 especially during cardiovascular exercise. When HICA enters into the muscle cell it can reduce acid buildup, allowing for longer periods of high-intensity activity before the muscle cell fatigues, clearing the circulation of waste products in particular ammonia and lactate.
N-Methyltyramine is a unique version of the compound L-Tyramine. It’s main mechanism of action promotes the release of Norepinephrine which supports higher energy levels. More importantly it has been shown to work as an Alpha 2 Adrenoceptor antagonist creating a situation with our bodies insulin that allows fat burning. N-methyltyramine significantly increases adrenergic neurotransmitters facilitating focus and mental concentration without jitteriness.
Cassia Nomame has been popular in Asia for thousands of years and and has been used to support healthy fat loss. Dissimilar to other stimulating fat oxidizers present in ALPHA CUTS® Nomame is a natural lipase inhibitor which blocks the lipase enzyme that breaks down fat for absorption.
Naringin is well known for it’s appetite suppressant properties and beneficial effects on fat metabolism. Naringin works as an aldose reductase inhibitor which inhibits the enzyme that turns glucose into sugars that remain trapped in the cell. One of the reasons why Naringin is a must have in the ALPHA CUTS® formula is it’s effect on boosting the efficacy of Caffeine Anyhdrous and Guarana maximizing it’s thermogenic effect. Equally important is it’s ability to prolong all of the compounds in the blend creating a fat burning effect that lasts for hours.
Guarana is added as a potent mental focus enhancer and natural stimulant. Well known for it’s rapid boost in energy and and quick spike in thermogenesis Gurana is perfectly balanced into the longer lasting effects of other ALPHA CUTS fat burning ingredients. Guarana will “jump start” your body getting it ready for a tough workout or strenuous day at work while supporting all the thermogenic properties in the ALPHA CUTS® arsenal.
