How does it work?
Bitter Orange Peel
Several compounds found in Bitter Orange Peel are structurally similar to ephedrine. However, Bitter Orange Peel is a "calmer" alternative to ephedrine, and is thought to have similar effects in terms of providing an energy boost, suppressing appetite and increasing your metabolic rate. Experts believe that Bitter Orange Peel increases fat metabolism without the cardiovascular side effects sometimes experienced with ephedrine (such as dry mouth, high blood pressure and nervousness). Although Bitter Orange Peel constricts blood vessels and makes your heart beat faster, in people with normal blood pressure at least, it has been shown to be safe [2].

Bitter Orange Peel works in a similar way to ephedrine, stimulating the release of catecholamines. One study cited in the August 2000 edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that an herbal blend containing Bitter Orange Peel extract raises the metabolic rate. One of the unique features of Bitter Orange Peel is the effect it has on your appetite. The extract of Bitter Orange Peel contains tyramine and octopamine. Studies show that octopamine helps you feel full on fewer calories. This makes Bitter Orange Peel very popular with dieters who struggle to control their food cravings.

L-Tyrosine
Tyrosine is a nonessential amino acid. It acts as a "building block" for several important brain chemicals, all of which work to regulate mood [4]. Tyrosine is also involved in the synthesis of enkephalins (pronounced en-keff-a-lins), substances that have pain-relieving effects. Human and animal research shows that tyrosine helps your body adapt to and cope with the effects of physical or psychological stress (such as intense regular exercise) [5]. Tyrosine can also help to offset the negative effects of sleep deprivation, and can leave you feeling more alert and energetic [6].

Caffeine
Because of its high caffeine content, Guaraná is a powerful fat-burning ingredient. Clinical trials show that caffeine will boost the fat burning effects of exercise by up to 30% [7]. More interesting still, research shows that caffeine will improve performance during short term, high intensity exercise, such as weight training [8]. Scientists from the University of Queensland have also found that people using caffeine burn twice as many fat calories in the hour after finishing exercise [9].

Green Tea
Thermobol also contains the strongest Green Tea extract on the market (standardised to 95% polyphenols). Research shows that green tea extract increases the amount of fat calories you burn each day, making weight loss faster and easier. A recent trial at the University of Geneva shows that green tea extract speeds up fat burning by more than 30% [10].

Cayenne
Cayenne contains capsaicin, the compound that produces the "hot" in hot peppers. Cayenne is known to increase your metabolic rate, which is one reason why you get so hot and sweaty after eating spicy foods [11]. One of the additional benefits of Cayenne is its function as a digestive aid. Cayenne increases the secretion of acids in the stomach, which increases the absorption and effectiveness of other herbs consumed with it. Reductions in appetite have been found in healthy Japanese women and white men when they consumed Cayenne pepper along with meals in a double-blind trial [12]. A similar trial shows that Cayenne raises the metabolic rate in Japanese women [13]. These trials suggest that Cayenne can make weight loss faster and easier.

5-HTP
5-HTP is extremely useful for anyone who wants to lose weight without the usual cravings for high-carbohydrate foods (such as bread or cookies), mood swings and an increase in appetite [14]. Your body uses 5-HTP to make serotonin, an important substance for normal nerve and brain function. Serotonin appears to play significant roles in sleep, emotional moods, pain control, inflammation and other body functions. 5-HTP is derived from the seeds of an African plant known Griffonia simplicifolia.

Guarana
Guarana comes from the seeds of a South American shrub - most of which originates in Brazil. The seeds of guarana are known to be rich in xanthines (caffeine) and have been widely used as a tonic in many South American countries (particularly Brazil). It has a powerful effect on increasing the metabolic rate, suppressing your appetite and enhancing both physical and mental performance [15].

Bioperine®
Bioperine® is a standardized piperine extract obtained from the fruits of the black pepper and/or long pepper plants. It has little effect on weight loss, lean muscle gain or sporting performance. Rather, the main effect of Bioperine® is to enhance the bioavailability of various nutrients consumed with it [16].

How do I use it?
Take 3 capsules daily, split throughout the day on an empty stomach, with water.
What results can I expect?
Although Thermobol's main benefit is faster weight loss, most users report increased energy levels. Thermobol works rapidly, and you should feel the increase in energy 30-60 minutes after taking 1 capsule. It's effect on weight loss will take a little longer (7-14 days), but you can expect to lose 1-3 pounds of fat each and every week, until you reach your target weight.
