WHAT IS IT?
Synephrine or Orange Extract is a naturally occurring alkaloid that is considered to be a stimulant and nootropic due to it’s affect on weight loss and cognitive processes in the brain. Naturally it is found in some plants and animals, specifically most synephrine found in dietary supplements is extracted and synthesized from the Citrus Aurantium Plant more commonly known as Bitter Orange extract. So when you’re looking for a pre workout/fat burner containing this, keep your eyes open for either ‘Synephrine’ or ‘Bitter Orange Extract’.
WHAT DOES IT DO/HOW DOES IT WORK?
Synephrine helps to increase metabolic rate, increase caloric expenditure and elevate energy levels throughout the day. In particular, it is a beta-agonist similar to Ephedrine and acts to increase metabolic rate via increasing lipolysis and BMR (basal metabolic rate).
Combined with a sensible diet and workout regime, it will help elevate your energy and mental focus, and increase your ability to burn calories throughout the day.
HOW/WHEN DO I TAKE IT?
To take advantage of the metabolic and energy properties of Synephrine, it is best taken first thing in the morning or 15 – 30 minutes before exercise. Pre-workout and fat loss supplements containing Synephrine should be taken with water before exercise.
The most efficacious dose is 15 – 30 milligrams per serve.
