XANTHOMAX/COFFEE INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
The first ingredient we are going to talk about has been called the “Master Molecule” because it is incredibly powerful and does a lot of things. Xanthohumol is a natural product found in the humulus lupulus plant, which is also known as hops. This is the compound found in beer and it is what gives it its flavor.
Xanthohumol is one of the most versatile and unique molecules, especially in the flavonoid class that has ever been discovered.
Most health conscious people are aware of Resveratrol found in wine and its powerful antioxidant properties. Studies show however that Xathohumol is 200 times more potent than Resveratrol and it’s a great anti-inflammatory.
The liver is the major detoxifier in your body. Xanthohumol aids the liver in the removal of toxins and helps prevent the development of fibrosis and cirrhosis which is known as fatty lifer disease.
It helps maintain a healthy cholesterol levels, blood sugar levels and insulin levels.
It aids in weight loss by lowering triglycerides which plays a part in heart disease. HIgh triglycerides comes from eating too many carbohydrates which deposits as fat in the body. Leptin is a hormone that lets your brain know when you have had enough to eat. High triglycerides lowers leptin levels so that you keeping eating even when you are full. By helping lower your triglycerides Xanthohumol helps raise you leptin levels so you aren’t as hungry. So as a appetite suppressant it helps to lose weight.
Another way Xanthohumol helps in weight loss is that it stimulates brain cells that produce GABA which is an inhibitory neurotransmitter which research shows that it aids in brown fat metabolism which is responsible for metabolic activity all over the body. It also plays an important role in what is called adipogenesis, in other words the beginning of fat cells by keeping the fat cells from loading up with fat by its metabolic activity.
Another feature of Xanthohumol is it helps people to relax and reduces stress allowing people rest better and get a more restful sleep. Research shows that people that get more restful sleep are more apt to get rid of excess weight.
TURMERIC ROOT EXTRACT (95% Curcuminoids)
Turmeric is a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
It boosts levels of the brain hormone BDNF, which increases the growth of new neurons and fights various degenerative processes in your brain. This is the process that helps improves long term memory and makes us smarter. It increases the levels of dopamine and serotonin, the hormones that make us feel better and happy.
It also helps delay Aging and Fights Age-Related Chronic Diseases.
Turmeric is used to treat a host of other ailments such as arthritis, heartburn (dyspepsia), joint pain, stomach pain, Crohn’s disease ulcerative colitis, bypass surgery, hemorrhage, diarrhea, intestinal gas, stomach bloating, Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection, stomach ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), gallbladder disorders, high cholesterol, a skin condition called lichen planus, skin inflammation from radiation treatment, and fatigue. It is also used for lung infections, fibromyalgia, leprosy, fever, menstrual problems, itchy skin, recovery after surgery, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, water retention, tuberculosis, urinary bladder inflammation, and kidney problems.
DIM is a compound that helps the metabolism of estrogen. For Men DIM helps lower the bad estrogen in the liver. As the male body ages it accumulates more estrogen, it becomes estrogen dominate which increases breast tissue, lowers testosterone, and enlarges the prostrate. One of the problems with being overweight is fat cells produce estrogen, the fatter you are the more estrogen your body produces.
Women also suffer from “estrogen dominance” which means you have too much estrogen compared to the progesterone and other hormones. Excessive estrogen generally leads to weight gain, mood swings, irritability and insomnia.
Typically what is happening is there is an enzyme that converts testosterone into estrogen and this is where DIM comes into play, it blocks that enzyme so it helps to balance the estrogen and testosterone levels in your body making for a more healthy body. When estrogen and testosterone levels are correct you feel better and it is easier to lose weight.
PHOSPHATIDYLCHOLINE FROM SUNFLOWER LECITHIN
Phosphatidylcholine is similar to Lecithin but not exactly the same, it is a more concentrated and powerful product. Phosphatidylcholine Increases Fat Breakdown (Lipolysis) and weight loss by breaking down the triglycerides into glycerol and free fatty acids that can be metabolized more easily.
Low levels of phosphatidylcholine are associated with memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease
A study (DB-RCT) of 80 healthy young adults found that phosphatidylcholine supplementation improved memory. The study showed that phosphatidylcholine increases the levels of choline and acetylcholine in the brain and improves memory and protects the brain from dementia.
Phosphatidylcholine helps protect the liver and has been found to even help regenerate it. The chances are if you are overweight you have fatty liver disease, which simply means you have excessive fat in your liver. Serious problems that can come from a fatty liver are fibrosis and cirrhosis. (Cirrhosis can cause death)
Although there is no cure for fatty liver many doctors treat it with phosphatidylcholine because of its strong ability to help remove fat from the body, which definitely aids in weight loss.
Inflammation can decrease the production of new neurons in the hippocampus, a brain region important for learning and memory. Phosphatidylcholine helps prevent this by decreasing TNF-alpha levels. Lecithin, a mixture of fats including phosphatidylcholine, increases antioxidant enzymes damaged by a lack of blood flow and oxygen,
Phosphatidylcholine seems to improve Bipolar Disorder. A case study of a bipolar boy showed that phosphatidylcholine supplementation improved sleep and helped with his symptoms of hypomania (a mild form of mania, which is a period of euphoria or great excitement).
Four studies (DB-RCTs) of 316 patients with ulcerative colitis found that phosphatidylcholine supplementation reduced disease severity and improved quality of life. It also decreased dependence on corticosteroids in patients taking them.
In a few studies phosphatidylcholine seems to help prevent gallstones.
COFFEE INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
JUGLANS REGIA EXTRACT
It is a psychoactive (substance having a profound or significant effect on mental processes:) central nervous system stimulant which is used to enhance levels of both energy and mental alertness. Jugians Regia Extract also improves cognitive function, decreases appetite, and increases levels of oxycitin, dopamine, seratonin and endorphins your ‘feel good’ hormones.
Espresso is coffee brewed by expressing or forcing a small amount of nearly boiling water under pressure through finely ground coffee beans. Espresso is generally thicker than coffee brewed by other methods, has a higher concentration of suspended and dissolved solids.
L-theanine is an amino acid found most commonly in tea leaves and in small amounts in Bay Bolete mushrooms. Researchers found that L-theanine helps reduce stress and promotes relaxation without drowsiness.
Combined with caffeine L-theanine helps increase focus and clarity of mind. Paired with caffeine, L-theanine may help increase focus and attention. A 2013 study found that moderate levels of L-theanine and caffeine helped a group of young adults to focus better during demanding tasks. The participants said they were much more alert and felt less tired.
The benefits of green tea are endless. Green tea improves mental alertness, aids in digestive health, promotes weight loss, and even anti-aging effects. Also, studies are finding the green tea can have positive properties on chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. In this article we will be exploring the beneficial effects of green tea.
Helps control blood sugar, works as an anti-inflammatory, aids in weight loss, memory improvement, helps prevent infection, healthier teeth and anti-aging.
PEA BETA PHENYLETHYLAMIN HCL
Phenethylamine stimulates the body to make certain chemicals that helps combat depression and other psychiatric conditions. It plays a role in increasing cognitive function. (Cognitive functions encompass reasoning, memory, attention, focus and language which leads greater creativity thought processes.
Beta Phenylethylamin HCL helps increase dopamine and serotonin which reduces stress, anxiety and depression.
GREEN COFFEE EXTRACT
Green coffee extract aids in weight loss. A few years ago Dr. Oz did a show on Green Coffee Extract. He recruited 100 women who were divided into two groups. One group received 400 mg of green coffee extract and the other group received a placebo. The women were told not to change their eating habits, but to keep a journal of what they ate. After two weeks, the placebo group averaged a one pound loss while the group that received the coffee extract lost an average of two pounds.
KIGELIA AFRICANA EXTRACT
Kigelia Africana Extract contains iridoids, phenylpropanoids and phenylethanoids which have antioxidant power, which is believed to be much greater than those of traditional flavonoids or polyphenols from plant sources. It has also been linked to lowering blood glucose levels.
Caffeine anhydrous is made from the seeds and leaves of coffee plants. The word “anhydrous” means “without water.” After harvesting, caffeine is extracted from the plant matter and dehydrated. This produces a highly concentrated caffeine powder. When you ingest caffeine, it hitches a ride to your brain via your bloodstream. There, it mimics adenosine, a compound that’s present throughout your body.
Adenosine works like a depressant, slowing you down and making you sleepy. Caffeine mimics adenosine so effectively that it’s able to take the place of adenosine in your brain and liven things up.
The stimulant properties of caffeine are increased further because it enhances the effects of natural stimulants, including dopamine, norepinephrine, and glutamate.
This ingredient has several benefits such as improving the control of blood sugar for people that are prediabetes or have type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It has also been found to lower bad cholesterol, raise good cholesterol in people that are taking beta blockers (heart medication), for obesity, bipolar disorder, heart attack, binge eating disorder, hypoglycemia. It is use in many weight loss supplements.
Lecithin is a fat molecule composed of inositol and choline which is found in the body’s living cells. What it does is it breaks down fat and disperses into your blood stream instead of letting the fat remain in the body. Then it is burned up or eliminated from the body.
Nearly all Lecithin supplement are derived from soybeans which is not the best source. To extract Lecithin from soybeans requires harsh chemicals but Lecithin derived from sunflowers doesn’t, the process for sunflower is much gentler and not genetically modified.
Lowering Cholesterol: Researchers have discovered that Lecithin can contribute to the lower of LDL (bad) cholesterol and raising HDL (good) cholesterol
Improves Digestion: The emulsifying work of Lecithin helps reduce digestive distress for many people that have Ulcerative colitis, an inflammatory bowel disease. Some research results suggest that Lecithin improves the mucus in the intestines because it contains phosphatidylcholine a component of the mucus in our gut.
Enhances Cognitive Function: Choline plays an important part of brain development and Phosphatidylcholine contains choline, one of the ingredients. Choline has been known to improve mental clarity, focus and memory.
Improved Immune Function: Studies show Lecithin may increase immune function, particularly in people with diabetes. A Brazilian study on rats found that daily lecithin supplementation increased macrophage activity by 29 percent. Macrophages are white blood cells that engulf debris, microbes, cancerous cells, and other foreign materials in the body. Also, the number of natural killer cells called lymphocytes, which are vital to the immune system, increased by 92 percent in non-diabetic rats. Although research is limited, many claim Lecithin is a good for treating, liver disease, bipolar disorder, gallbladder disease, anxiety, eczema dermatitis.
