5 Insane Muscle Building Secrets

muscle building secretsHere’s what you need to know…

The double progression system works. It’s the easiest and most adaptable form of planned progression.
Stop listening to the skinny “functional training” gurus who can’t squat 225, especially when it comes to their advice on belt usage.
The big lifts work for most people. But if a big movement isn’t helping you build muscle mass, look for alternatives.
You must hit a muscle at least twice per week for it to grow at an optimal rate.
If you can’t feel a muscle working during an exercise, you won’t stimulate it enough to grow.

1 – The double progression system works… every time.
Lifters who want to get bigger and stronger without the need to peak at a specific time (like a competition) will do best using a double progression method.

First, pick a rep range of about 2 or 3 reps for your work sets – for example, 1 to 3 reps, 3 to 5 reps, 6 to 8 reps, 9 to 12 reps. The goal is to do all of your work sets using the same weight. When you can do that, you add some weight the next time.

Let’s say you select 3 to 5 reps as your training zone. You decide to do 5 sets of bench press and you slap 250 pounds on the bar. The first week you get the following rep count for your 5 sets: 5, 5, 4, 4, and 3.

That’s fine. All of your sets fall in the proper rep range. However, since you did not reach the high end of the zone (5 reps) on all your sets, it means that you have to use 250 pounds again during your next session.

If, at your next session, you’re able to get 5 reps for all of your sets, you can move up to 255-260 pounds.

Remember: The key to becoming more muscular and stronger is to keep on progressing. The double progression system is the easiest and most adaptable form of planned progression you can use. You really can’t go wrong.

2 – Forget what the “functional training” Nazis say, using a belt for your heavy sets isn’t a crutch.
The body should be as functional as possible. That means the body itself should be able to do the required work without the help of any supportive gear.

However, when it comes to belts, there’s no doubt that they can add a few pounds to some big lifts – squats, deadlifts, and cleans, for example – by increasing intra-abdominal pressure more than you can by using only muscle contraction (transversus abdominis and obliques).

The trouble is, you have “functional training Nazis” that label all belt use as a crutch. That is a bit extreme. I do most of my lifting without a belt. I never wear a belt when doing snatches, military presses, or push presses and very rarely when deadlifting.

I do use a belt, though, on cleans, back squats, and front squats when going above 85%. My execution of these lifts with large weights is actually better technically when using a belt and this allows me to lift more weight, with better overall form and more safely.

I’m willing to bet that my “core” is just as strong – if not stronger – than most of the functional Nazis who do everything without a belt and do tons of specific core work.

So yes, most of your work should be done without a belt. But using it on some lifts when going heavy is perfectly fine and will not make your core weak and non-functional. That’s even truer if you do core-specific work on top of that.

Someone who squats 800 pounds with a belt has a much, much stronger core than someone who can squat 225 without one. Period.

3 – There’s no such thing as a king of the exercises.
The big basic lifts will give you more gains than other lifts. However, not everybody will get great results from all of them.

For example, I’ve had a lot of clients fail to gain much leg size from doing back squats. The back squat is a great movement, but it will build the glutes and lower back more than the legs in some people. That’s not bad if you’re an athlete, but it’s not so good if your goal is to build big legs.

I’ve also had people get almost zero pectoral growth from the bench press. Others didn’t get much in the way of “aesthetic” muscle growth from doing deadlifts.

In these cases, is it best to stick to the squat, bench and deadlift because they’re the “kings of lifts” even if these individuals don’t get the results they want? Or should we use movements that give them what they’re training for?

This isn’t an excuse to avoid hard work on the big basics! These big lifts will work very well for most people. At the most there will be one of them that doesn’t do much for you.

However, if, after training really hard on a big movement, it’s not giving you what you want, it’s perfectly fine to look for alternatives to develop the body you want.

4 – If you don’t feel the muscle, you’re wasting your time.
If someone doesn’t feel a muscle working during an exercise, he won’t stimulate that muscle enough to grow at a maximal rate.

Even when training for strength – using heavy weights and low reps – you should feel the proper muscles doing the work. You will not get a big pump in these muscles from strength work, but the target muscles should feel harder after a set.

If you lack the motor skill to optimally activate a specific muscle during a big lift, you should consider using isolation work for that muscle to learn to recruit it and flex it maximally.

When you’re good at recruiting that muscle, it’ll become more involved in the big lifts. So in that regard, doing isolation work for a muscle you don’t otherwise feel properly is an investment in future gains.

This is the progression I prescribe for someone who doesn’t feel a specific muscle working during a big lift. I call it the “isolate to integrate” approach:

Step 1:  Learn to isolate the stubborn muscle using isolation work and constant tension, focusing on the quality of contraction.
Step 2:  Pre-fatigue the stubborn muscle with an isolation movement and then do the big lift. The pump created in the stubborn muscle will allow you to feel it more during the big lift. This will improve the mind-muscle connection with the muscle, which will help you learn to integrate it during the lift.
Step 3:  Do the big lift first by focusing on feeling the once-stubborn muscle. This requires the use of a lighter weight while focusing on proper muscle contraction – not just on moving the weight.
Step 4:  Move on to heavier lifting on the basic lift.
Each step should last 2-4 workouts. Using this approach allowed me to start using my pecs more in the bench press. I used to be all-shoulders in the bench. Despite bench-pressing in the 400-plus range, I had zero pectoral development. Nowadays I’d say that, if anything, I’m a pec-dominant bench presser!

5 – Forget that once a week crap. You must hit a muscle at least twice per week, directly or indirectly, to grow at an optimal rate.
Even though it seems like the norm nowadays, training each muscle only once a week is a fairly recent thing. Up to the late 90’s, each muscle was normally hit 2-3 times per week by bodybuilders seeking maximum muscular development.

People often fall victim to the instinct that tells them to do more in order to grow more. As such, when they train a muscle they feel the need to do a zillion sets during their workout. They’re not satisfied until that muscle is thoroughly thrashed. They will do 5 exercises for biceps, 6 for chest etc.

If you do 20-30 sets for a muscle group, going close to failure on each of them, using drop sets, supersets, rest/pause, etc. to kill the muscles, of course you won’t be able to hit each muscle group 2-3 times a week!

And since bodybuilding tends to attract excessive personalities, it’s understandable that they’ll fall into the trap of doing way too much volume on any given workout. The only way they can “get by” and get some gains is to then train each muscle only once a week.

This is not optimal. It might work if you’re taking anabolic drugs that increase protein synthesis (making each workout stimulate more growth, for longer), but others need more frequent stimulation with less volume per session to get maximal growth.

Get Ripped Fast! Control Water Retention for Extreme Definition

get ripped fastThe body has a natural mechanism for storing water and ions, just as it does for storing excess calories as fat. Learn how to control it!

I hear it all the time… “I do so much cardio, and my diet and training are so on point, yet I still have this layer of fat covering my abs! What’s the matter with me?” Well… that layer of “muscle-masking mess” that you might assume to be fat, could in fact be primarily “subcutaneous fluid”, otherwise known as “water weight”.

The body has a natural mechanism for storing water and ions in the body, just as it does for storing excess calories as fat. Ions are basically charged particles which float around in your body, having various functions. You may have heard the term “electrolyte” before. An electrolyte is basically a molecule with a certain electric “charge” in your body, such as potassium (K+), or sodium (Na+), for example.

Take this test: See that skin covering your lower abdominal area? Give it a pinch, pull it, and let it go. If it shakes with a sort of quick “rippled” motion, you are probably carrying a lot of fluid which you were assuming to be fat.

A lot of bodybuilders get very lean, and achieve vascularity in areas such as their arms and legs, yet still cannot get their lower abdominal muscles to appear. This is usually due, not to fat, but to fluid and excess sodium ions being deposited in the lower abdominal region, thereby masking the well-sculpted muscle that lies underneath. This is why you hear a lot of people saying things such as “I’ll never get this thick skin to go away”; when in fact they are misunderstanding a major concept that underlies achieving a truly striated and well-defined look: flushing subcutaneous fluid and excess sodium from underneath the skin.

“But how do I get rid of that excess fluid?” you might ask. I’m going to outline the steps I follow when I have a little extra fluid to lose, so that you also can get rid of that stubborn water weight, and achieve the thin skin, and truly striated look of competitive bodybuilders and fitness models. Before you start to drop water weight though, it is wise to know if you are lean enough to even begin considering it.

If you are above 7 or 8% body fat and you’re looking to get extremely lean from water loss, it probably won’t happen. But if you can already pretty much see your abdominal muscles, but have thick skin overlying them, and want to thin it out a bit, then these steps should be what you need to achieve the look you desire. Stick with it for a prolonged period of time, and give it a dedicated try. Nothing works overnight.

1. DRINK MORE WATER

That’s right. You’ve probably heard this one before, and it is definitely true. This is the most important advice I can give, and I cannot stress its importance. Besides flushing out your kidneys and entire digestive system, hydrating your body, and brain, thereby allowing your metabolism to function more effectively, and just making for a nicer skin tone and appearance, drinking more water causes you to release more water through excretion, thereby dropping “water retention”.

Aim for 1-2 gallons of water a day, but be sure to take a complete multi-vitamin, as drinking a lot of water causes you to excrete many ions which may result in a deficiency of certain vitamins.

2. SWEAT, SWEAT, SWEAT

Sweating is a way of “evaporative cooling”, a mechanism by which the body regulates its temperature. If you are sweating, it means your metabolism is probably in high gear, since a higher metabolism equals a higher resting body temperature for the most part. Also, water retention is not simply “water”, but sodium ions trapped underneath the skin. This is why your sweat tastes salty. A trick I use is to sit in the sauna, and keep drinking water. In the beginning, your sweat will taste salty, telling you that you are retaining sodium.

After a while, your sweat will begin to taste like water. This tells you that you have sweat most of the sodium out that was being retained underneath your skin, which means you have lost a good portion of muscle-masking fluid. Once again, whenever sitting in a sauna, be sure to have water handy, and be sure to supplement with a vitamin, as you sweat out many of your essential vitamins.

3. POSE OFF!

A lot of people don’t like to sit in front of the mirror and squeeze their muscles, but I have found this to be one of the most important factors in truly achieving great detail deep within the muscle bellies. Besides causing you to sweat out subcutaneous fluid, posing allows you to gain greater control of your muscles. Try to flex just your posterior deltoid muscle, or just one muscle of your quadriceps.

It is a good method of practice for establishing a mind-muscle connection which will both enhance definition while posing, and allow you to better control your muscles during resistance training. The more you pose, and keep your sodium and water level low, the more cuts you will begin to see in your muscles over time, providing that your diet is on point as well.

4. DON’T GORGE ON THE SALT!

That’s correct, eating foods such as french fries, potato chips, and various other foods loaded with unnecessary amounts of sodium, will cause you to retain water. The body only needs between 2000-2500mg of sodium a day to complete its metabolic functions.

If you go way over that mark, you are indulging in a mineral which the American population has been using in excess for quite some time now, creating many health problems and concerns. Keep your sodium moderate, and replace excess salt with spices such as garlic, ginger, fresh vegetables, black pepper, chives, cilantro, Ms. Dash, hot sauce, or anything else your taste buds desire.

5. EAT MORE FIBER

Most Americans, and even more surprisingly, most “bodybuilders”, do not consume adequate amounts of fiber in their diet. Similar to water, which cleanses the urinary tract and kidneys, fiber cleanses the colon/intestinal tract, keeping things moving smoothly, and mores, aiding in the removal of excess fluid. In the morning, if I find that I need to drop some fluid, I will take 2 tablespoons of Psyllium Husk Orange Natural Colon Cleanser, mixed with water.

During my meals, I include fresh vegetables, and I steam the ones I cook very lightly or eat them raw with Balsamic Vinegar and/or garlic powder to make sure I don’t boil out all of their nutrients. I also include fresh fruits such as blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries, all of which have plenty of fiber and many antioxidants which help prevent against cancer and other ailments. When in doubt, berries are a great way to go.

6. DANDELION ROOT & BLACK COFFEE OR TEA!

I have found the natural herb dandelion root to be a good naturally occurring diuretic, when taken in conjunction with the previous methods I have outlined. Always make sure to drink PLENTY of water and watch your sodium levels, otherwise you will be wasting your time. Coffee and tea are naturally occurring diuretics as well, although some people might not like the jittery feeling caused by stimulants.

7. TANNING

Tanning helps to tighten up the skin, and drop excess fluid through sweating as well. Always use some sort of SPF level, and make sure to consume antioxidants (such as berries), on a frequent basis to fight off free radicals which can be carcinogenic (cancer causing).

8. GIVE PREPARATION-H A TRY!

If you’ve followed all of my previous steps, but still find that you are retaining a little more fluid than you’d like, I’ve found that rubbing preparation-H on my stomach before doing cardio, and/or tanning helps me to drop excess fluid from stubborn areas.

Once again, this won’t work if you aren’t already lean, or if you are slacking on your diet and/or consuming too much sodium. But if all of the above are in control, then this might just be the little spark to ignite the rest of that water releasing fire. Think about it…this stuff is used to shrink fluid out of swollen hemhorroidal tissue. It’s worked for me, but once again it takes time.

So I’ve outlined the steps you should take in order to achieve the look you desire, minus the water-retention. As always, the first step to achieving that balanced physique is a proper nutritional and training regiment. If those are in check, and you find that you are 1 or 2 steps away from dropping that last bit of water, then this should be all you need to get to where you desire.

Can Mesothelioma be Cured Naturally?

mesothelioma curesMesothelioma is a type of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos, a group of minerals used in building insulation and other commercial applications. Long-term exposure to, and inhalation of asbestos fibers leads to the buildup of scar tissue in the lungs. These fibers can cause mesothelioma as well as almost any other type of cancer. Mesothelioma is a very serious form of cancer, which may cause those affected to believe that the only possible cures are those that are accepted in modern western medicine.

The truth; however, is that, like any other type of cancer, mesothelioma can be cured naturally without the use of drugs, chemotherapy, surgery or radiation. Unknown to many is the fact that holistic cancer treatments are fully capable of reversing even the most severe forms of late stage cancer. Through the application of a variety of treatments including nutrition, mediation, detoxification, herbal medicine, and others, mesothelioma, like any other cancer, can be conquered.

Treatment options

Most traditional western doctors will likely give a very poor prognosis to those diagnosed with mesothelioma. This is only because traditional cancer treatments have a very low rate of success for curing this, and most other, forms of cancer. This is why it is advisable to instead see a holistic health practitioner that has experience with treating cancer. You can then discuss natural treatment options that have much higher success rates.

Gerson therapy

The Gerson therapy is a vegetable juice based cancer treatment program founded by Max Gerson. The program concentrates on removing toxins from the body and providing it the nutrients it needs to heal naturally. Gerson therapy has been successful in curing many severe cases of cancer in which traditional treatments have failed miserably. Treatments can be done at a Gerson treatment center or in your own home. To see for yourself what Gerson therapy is capable of, watch the documentary The Gerson Miracle. Gerson is just one example of the many alternative cancer treatment programs available.

The Healing Code

One aspect of healing that is all too often overlooked is the mental aspect. The subconscious is vitally important in overcoming any form of disease. The Healing Code, a bestselling book by Dr. Alex Loyd and Dr. Ben Johnson, provides the tools that allow the mind to conquer disease. Reading this book is a very important first step towards healing. Only once the mind is in the correct state can the body begin to heal.

Success Stories

The asbestos.com website features the names and survival stories of many mesothelioma survivors. This site does not necessarily advocate alternative medicine, yet most of the survivors listed on this page attribute their healing to natural and alternative cures. Some of the treatments mentioned by these survivors include “meditation,” “nutrition,” “mind-body therapy,” “massage therapy,” “holistic treatments,” “homeopathy,” “antioxidants,” and “herbal therapy.” By reading the success stories of other mesothelioma survivors you can begin to gain hope and the knowledge that the natural treatment of this cancer is not only possible, but the best option.

mesotheliomaNatural Cures for Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a rare cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. Is it possible to cure mesothelioma the natural way, given its poor prognosis? The answer is a resounding yes! In recent years, Paul Kraus, Rhio O`Connor and others chose to avoid conventional cancer therapies, feeling that they would have a better chance of survival by using supplements, herbs, rest and a nutritious diet. In so doing, they have provided living proof that curing this malignant cancer and living a long and healthy life is possible.

What Exactly is Mesothelioma Cancer?

A person may have been exposed to asbestos at work and inhaled asbestos dust or fibers. The fibers then become lodged in the membranes that surround the lungs, heart or abdomen. Over a period of time, these fibers cause tissue abnormalities, resulting in mesothelioma cancer.

Symptoms of Mesothelioma

Many people are not too worried when mesothelioma symptoms first appear, since the symptoms are vague and are sometimes thought to be nothing more than a bad case of flu. Symptoms can include shortness of breath, chest pain and/or a persistent cough.
Once diagnosed, mesothelioma carries a very poor prognosis particularly because it is a cancer that is often diagnosed late. Many people diagnosed with this disease are told to “put your affairs in order”.

Conventional treatments include chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.

Hope comes in the form of those who have survived mesothelioma. A closer look at their methods of fighting cancer the natural way can encourage others who have contracted the disease and help them to see that life can be extended for many years.

Mesothelioma Survivors

Mesothelioma survivor Paul Kraus was determined to fight his peritoneal mesothelioma cancer the natural way. He became a vegetarian and started a rigorous anti-cancer diet which included organic fresh fruits and vegetables, grains, nuts and rice. In addition, he added many vitamins and supplements to his daily routine, consumed freshly squeezed juices and tried a treatment known as “ozone therapy”. The rationale for ozone therapy is that cancer cells do not thrive in an oxygenated environment.

Paul Kraus’ prognosis was very poor and he was told by his doctors, very honestly, that his chance of success with chemotherapy was not high at all. In addition, he was informed that the quality of his life would be severely compromised by the heavy chemotherapy treatments that would be prescribed. He was given a year to live but has survived a further eleven years by going the natural route.

Mesothelioma survivor Rhio O’Connor contracted pleural mesothelioma after asbestos exposure in his youth. He decided against surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Instead, with some help from physicians, he developed a regimen that included consuming more than 100 supplements daily, following a nutritious diet and practicing holistic, mind-body medicine.

O`Connor was inspired by Hippocrates who, more than 2,000 years ago, said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”. O`Connor is the published author of the book “They Said Months, I Chose Years: A Mesothelioma Survivor`s Story.”

Told that he had less than a year to live and to take his wife on a cruise, he fought mesothelioma the natural way and lived a further 7 years to tell the tale.

Conclusion

It is a fact that many malignant mesothelioma survivors have taken steps to improve or enhance their immune system. Certain herbs have been used throughout history for the treatment of various cancers. Because natural substances are difficult to patent, drug companies will typically not invest money to research and develop these substances.

With careful investigation and research, the mesothelioma victim can make an informed choice as to the best way to fight the cancer and prolong life.

How To Eat To Lose Weight

eat to lose weightAnyone remember those diets or supplements that claimed to “let you eat what you want and still lose weight” or told you how to eat to lose weight by eating whatever you wanted? Yeah me too. I’m sure that panned out very well for those that heard that and decided to eat 10 cheeseburgers a day… Funny thing about all that is, in some ways they were right. I know, I know, scams being right sounds like an oxymoron but they say that every myth/rumor/wild claim has a kernel of truth in it. So exactly how can you eat to lose weight? Let’s explore that with 5 tips on how to eat to lose weight!

How To Eat To Lose Weight

1. Eat More…Frequently

Yeah the whole “3 square meals a day” adage actually needs to be bumped up to about 5 meals per day. Eating 5 meals a day will help your metabolism stay elevated (higher metabolism means more fat burned) and keep your blood sugar levels in check (no bad energy crashes like you get after a big meal). These meals still need to be nutritious (a Big Mac won’t cut it) but eating meals that contain between 300-500 calories, depending on your individual calorie needs which you can find here, 5 times a day will go a long way in you reaching your weight loss goals.

2. Keep Right Ratios

The ratio of nutrients in your meals is critical to ensuring that you get all the nutrition you can from your meals. It’s typically recommended that if you’re wanting to lose weight maintaining a ratio of 40% protein, 40% carbs and 20% fats (healthy fats, no Big Macs!) is ideal. This is by no means a concrete ratio and you may find that you need to make some minor tweaks here and there based on the feedback that your body gives you.

3. Everything Counts

Remember that everything counts! Milk in your coffee, the glass of wine with dinner, the small snack at work…it all counts. This is not a starvation thing, but it is important that as you start to eat more frequently to increase your metabolism that you keep track of all the little things that add up and might keep you from losing weight.

4. Eat Every Few Hours

This step conveniently goes hand-in-hand with eating 5 meals a day in that eating about every 3-4 hours will also help in keeping your metabolism up! The human body will actually start to slow its metabolic rate if there is no food in it for more than a few hours. This happens because the body perceives a period of “famine” is occurring and triggers the brain to slow down the body’s metabolism to preserve fat and energy stores. This is also why starvation diets won’t work long-term!

5. Stay Hydrated

Tip #5 on how to eat to lose weight is as simple as that. Drinking water and staying hydrated is critical to losing weight, especially when you’re changing your eating habits to help you lose weight. Dehydration is actually the primary cause for hunger pangs so the next time you start feeling the munchies come on, don’t automatically reach for the nearest food. Try drinking a glass of water and see how you feel after about 20 minutes. Additionally, it’s not excessive to drink 8-10 glasses of water especially if you’re going through an intense workout program like Insanity or P90X.

So there you have it, 5 easy tips on how to eat to lose weight. Hopefully you got some value out of this and will help you on your weight loss journey. IF you did get something out of this then pass it on to your friends and family, especially those that are ready to get their health on track or improve their fitness and need a place for tips, motivation and support.

Foods That Boost Metabolism

boost your metabolism foodsFoods that Boost Metabolism – Metabolism can be a real trickster for a lot of people and as you age it starts to gradually slow down over the years, especially for anyone with a more stationary lifestyle. And that sucks…because a slower metabolism means; your body is more likely to store extra calories as fat, you can’t eat as much as you used to, and your energy levels will suffer.

The solution seems simple; just kick your metabolism back up…but how? With so many companies promising their product will “boost your metabolism overnight” it’s hard to know who to trust so here are seven metabolism boosting foods that will help you jump-start your metabolism naturally! (That means no nasty side effects or using chemicals that will cause your metabolism to crash after you stop using them).

7 Foods That Boost Metabolism

1. Chili Peppers & Spicy Foods

If you like to be adventurous with your diet then this will be one of your favorite metabolism boosting foods. Not only are peppers and spicy-based foods delicious they’re also good for you! Chili peppers contain a compound called capsaicin which is what gives peppers their natural spicy taste. Capsaicin and their less spicy relative, capsinoids, act as a thermogenic meaning it will help you literally burn off calories. As those compounds begin to metabolize in your body it starts to put off energy in the form of heat so you know that “heat” you feel when you eat something spicy? That’s the thermogenic properties of capsaicin and capsinoids at work!

Pretty much any pepper will work as a metabolism boosting food so pick your peppers based on whatever your preferences are. If you like lower & slower burns jalapeƱos might just be for you or if you normally avoid spicy items then give the sweet tasting bell pepper a try. Should you be feeling particularly brave you could attempt to brave the infamous Ghost Pepper but don’t say I didn’t warn you. That one burns deep…

2. Yogurt

Trying a few too many of those spicy peppers might have been a little bit much for your tongue and you’re in luck! The next item on our list of metabolism boosting foods is yogurt & other probiotics! (Dairy helps counteract the thermogenic response in capsaicin so keep some milk or chocolate handy if you’re spicy sensitive.)

Probiotics are remarkable little strains of healthy bacteria that help your body digest and process food more efficiently. Even though the idea of intentionally putting bacteria into your body sounds disgusting, anything that helps your body naturally digest food better is a good thing because the nutrients in your food are getting into your system more effectively. Not to mention, you’ve likely consumed probiotics at some time in your life and you didn’t even know because they’re natural! Probiotics are typically found in things like; kombucha, tempeh, Shakeology, and of course yogurt!

3. Grapefruit

The third item on this metabolism boosting foods list is, personally, a tough one to swallow. That being said I know tons of people that adore grapefruit and it’s citric & somewhat bitter taste! More importantly, though, grapefruits have a large body of evidence that show grapefruits can boost weight loss.

Eating a little grapefruit or drinking some grapefruit juice before a meal can really help boost the metabolism and encourage weight loss, especially as part of a calorie restrictive diet. However, unless you know you’re overeating, a calorie restrictive diet should not be used if you’re going through an intense fitness program like Insanity, P90X, or Les Mills Combat – instead you should make sure you follow your specific calorie and nutrition needs which you can find here: Calorie Calculator. Additionally, grapefruit is also a great source of vitamin C, vitamin A, and a host of other antioxidants!

4. Caffeine

SODAS DO NOT COUNT! Ok, just thought I would make sure you know before I delve into this metabolism boosting food : – ) While caffeine isn’t technically a food (it’s really classified as a chemical) it’s still a natural and healthy metabolism booster!

Similar to capsaicin, caffeine is proven to have thermogenic properties to help you burn calories and slim down. Be careful though, after amphetamines were outlawed in the creation of diet pills many manufacturers switched to using concentrated doses of caffeine to help their consumers lose weight without any concern for their clients’ health. So don’t overdo it with the caffeine!

 

5. Raspberries

To be 100% honest, the science on this one is fairly new but the evidence from recent studies is pretty convincing. If you’re a Dr. Oz fan then you may know that raspberries contain an organic compound called “ketones” and have been shown to help burn fat – most notably liver fat, which can be difficult to shed.
Not only do raspberries provide you with a great tasting tool in your arsenal of metabolism boosting foods, they also give you excellent nutrition. Besides ketones, raspberries are an amazing natural source of vitamin C and fiber. Try adding a handful of raspberries to your next helping of yogurt and your metabolism & body will thank you!speed metabolism

6. Eggs

Eggs and other high-protein breakfast foods are powerful additions to your set of metabolism boosting foods to help you slim down. Protein-dense foods for breakfast won’t flood your body with glucose first thing in the morning so your energy levels will stay balanced. Protein also takes longer to be broken down in the body so you’ll feel more satisfied for a longer period of time after eating.

And while eggs have gotten a bad rap in recent years, an ever-increasing body of evidence shows that a moderate intake of eggs (roughly 2 a day) has no negative effect on cholesterol. In fact, some studies show that eating eggs might even improve your cholesterol so be sure to stock your fridge with a dozen of these metabolism boosting foods!

7. Water

This is the mother of all metabolism boosting foods. The chosen one. The one metabolism booster to rule them all. The…well you get the idea. While you may not know it, you probably struggle with hydration problems because most Americans just aren’t drinking enough water. It’s unfortunate because water really is one of the best metabolism boosting foods out there.

Drinking water promotes satiety – creating a feeling of being full. So drinking some water before a meal means you’re prone to eat less (according to one study, 75-90 calories less!). How much water should you drink? It’s typically recommended that you drink half your body weight in ounces per day so, for example, if you weighed 150 lbs. take 150 ÷ 2 = 75 ounces of water per day, every day. Pretty easy stuff!
Now that you’re armed to the teeth with these metabolism boosting foods it’s important to be consistent with them. Keep them a part of your daily nutrition and you’ll see a boost in your metabolism before you know it. And if you’re ready to really kick your metabolism into gear then be sure to sign up to get your free workout video at the top right of the page to get a tighter body today!

Libido Boost Plus

Libido Boost PlusLibido Boost Plus advertisements are fairly convincing. The advertisements claim this all-natural formula will work with your body to increase sexual stamina and erection size. The ingredient descriptions are informative. And, the 90 day guarantee makes it look like a steal of deal at first glance.

However, many products look good on the surface but offer few, if any, sexual benefits. Rather than giving into the hype, let’s take a closer look at Libido Boost Plus to see if it can give you the results you want. As with all supplements, results may vary from individual to individual.

The Science Behind Libido Boost Plus…

Libido Boost Plus stands out from other dietary supplements due to its all-natural ingredients. Manufacturers were kind enough to provide a basic breakdown of key ingredients, so users know exactly what they’re putting into their bodies.

I did a little extra research and was impressed with the science behind the Libido Boost Plus formula:

  • Vitamin B6. An essential B vitamin, this ingredient is crucial for the proper breakdown and utilization of carbs, fats, and proteins. It also plays a key role in hemoglobin production, which carries oxygen to healthy tissue. Experts believe vitamin B6 stimulates the thyroid to regulate hormones. It may also be useful for weight loss.[1]
  • Tribulus Terrestris. Tribulus contains steroidal saponins which are said to have a positive effect on testosterone production. According to research, tribulus terrestris is an effective aphrodisiac due to its “androgen increasing property.”[2]
  • Oat Straw. This ingredient may relax blood vessels to improve circulation and flow. With more blood flowing to the penis, you’ll experience firmer erections. Unfortunately, further studies are needed to verify claims of improved sexual performance.
  • Eurycoma Longifolia. This herb is so popular for its sexual enhancement that it is now considered a “protected” species. It contains chemicals which are said to increase testosterone levels and improve sexual prowess. Studies show eurycoma longifolia promotes the growth of both ventral prostate and seminal vesicles, making it an effective aphrodisiac.[3]
  • Yohimbine HCI. This chemical increases blood flow while stimulating nerve impulses to the penis. It is popularly used to treat erectile dysfunction and increase energy levels. Experts recommend taking 15-30 mg yohimbine to improve sexual performance, but taking larger doses may increase side effect risk.[4]
  • Arginine HCI. Arginine is a nutrient precursor to nitric oxide. Nitric oxide relaxes blood vessels and temporarily reduces high blood pressure. Recent research shows arginine increases HGH levels by as much as 100%, and when combined with exercise that amount doubles![5]
  • Epimedium. Also known as horny goat weed, this ingredient contains phytochemicals which increase blood flow and improve sexual function. One chemical in particular, icariin, mimics testosterone’s effects and may treat hypoandrogenism.[6]
  • Catuaba. This traditional Brazilian aphrodisiac is used to heighten sexual arousal and treat impotence. However, there is no clinical research validating its performance and safety.

The results in the clinical studies may be atypical and overall results may vary.

Are There Any Side Effects to Worry About?

When I first looked at the label, I was concerned about Libido Boost Plus’ yohimbe usage. Yohimbe may be safe and effective in small doses, but larger doses have been linked to severe negative side effects such as hallucinations, seizures, and stroke.

However, judging from the consumer reviews, Libido Boost Plus does not cause any severe or long lasting negative side effects.

It contains the right ingredient combinations in clinically proven and safe concentrations.

How to Use Libido Boost Plus

Manufacturers recommend that you take 2 to 3 capsules 30 minutes prior to sexual activity. For best results, take Libido Boost Plus on a regular basis for at least one month.

What if Libido Boost Plus Doesn’t Work?

Approximately 98% of Libido Boost Plus users are satisfied with their results. However, a small fraction of users do not experience the results they are looking for.

Fortunately, Libido Boost Plus is backed with a great guarantee. If you are not satisfied, simply return the product within 90 days to receive a full refund. No hassles. No fuss.

There are no expensive auto-ship programs and customer service is friendly and willing to help.

To learn more about Libido Boost Plus and its guarantee, simply contact customer service.

Final Thoughts

Libido Boost Plus has a lot to offer when it comes to improving sex drive and stamina. Although it might not work for everyone, Libido Boost Plus contains ingredients clinically proven to promote reliable results.

The money-back guarantee and great customer service make it worth trying at least once. After all, the only way to know if a product works is to try it yourself. It’s completely risk-free, so I think it deserves two thumbs-up.

In conclusion…

Libido boost plus is for two types of people:

Those looking for a libido only pill
Those looking for an economy male enhancement pill
If you’re short on cash, Libido Boost Plus is the abosolute best choice for a male enhancement.

Maxx Test 300 Helps You Avoid Low Testosterone

Maxx Test 300Maxx Test 300 – If there is something men should be afraid of the most, it must be their age. Why? Because there is nothing a man can do to prevent aging condition of his body. Definitely it is a natural phase that from time to time you get older, yet the main problem you may be worried about is actually not this one. As you are no longer young, your body system changes as well thus do not be surprised if you feel like you are not as strong and fab as you used to be.

Physical appearance with wrinkles and shiny grey hair? Not a big deal; dye it and you are going to look fresher. However, what about the hormonal changes that make you lose your passion and other important things you should have as a man? This is a big problem considering the effects of low testosterone that possibly happen to you, for example losing confidence, terrible sex life, hard to focus, loss of muscles, and many more. The good news is you are not the only one who has the problem, you are not alone. But the bad news is that many people do not know how to deal with this situation and as the result, they just live with it.

Maxx Test 300 for low testosterone

Low testosterone happens to all men as they age so basically there is nothing wrong with it. The problem arises when it falls more than it is supposed to be, below the normal level of 300-1000 ng/dL. How do you know you have this condition? Medical check-up helps although you can also check whether you have the symptoms of low testosterone, for example:

Low sex drive

Different from women who can naturally lose their passion due to menopause, men generally stay the same over years though the testosterone level is not as high as when they are young. However, you can dramatically lose your sex desire when your testosterone drops more than it normally does. Do some reflection on this matter and find out the answer.

Difficulty achieving erection

As the hormone stimulates a man’s sex drives, it is also responsible for making you achieve an erection by stimulating the receptors in your brain to produce nitric oxide. Therefore, when the testosterone levels are too low, you are going to find difficulties in achieving erection before sex or experience spontaneous erection.

Hair loss

When hair loss is basically normal in men who age, low testosterone will make it worse. Men with low levels of the hormone may experience a loss of body and facial hair. Obviously it is something every man does not want to happen; they still want to look good even though they are no longer young.

Fatigue

You are going to be tired after doing your daily activities, it is clear. However, you had better suspecting yourself to have low levels of testosterone when you get tired too easily. Extreme fatigue and noticeable decrease in energy levels are the signs of it. You will have less motivation to go to the gym and still feel exhausted even after getting plenty of sleep.

Loss of muscle mass

It is quite interesting to see that when you have too low testosterone, you will lose your muscle mass but gain more body fat. No wonder that as you get older, your body no longer look fabulous. This is going to happen as well to your bone for you have a higher chance to suffer from osteoporosis.

Mood changes

Who says mood changes only happen to women who have pre-menstrual syndrome or menopause? Even men can experience mood changes especially if the testosterone levels are too low. Testosterone influences many physical processes in the body; it can also affect mood and mental capacity.

Decrease in hemoglobin

Surprisingly, low levels of testosterone also give impacts to your blood as your hemoglobin can goes down and you possibly suffer from mild anemia. What will happen if you have this? Getting tired easily, losing appetite, feeling weak, and having no energy.

As an all-natural dietary supplement, Maxx Test 300 is proven to increase the production of testosterone in men whose bodies are deficient.

No exaggeration to say that age does not make a man, but Maxx Test 300 does. You must be curious about the supplement and therefore it is a good idea to stay in your seat and read the following Maxx Test 300 review.

In the situation where your testosterone levels are lower than it is supposed to be, the only thing you probably want the most is how to make it better as you appreciate your life and for you, age should not make you look poor.

Providing Maxx Test 300 review only with the description of how good it is for elder male adults seems not enough as everyone can say that something is good or not. What you need to know more is what it can give you and why you should take it, at least try it out for a month. Therefore, let’s go deeper on what magic the supplement can give you which becomes the reason to grab it fast:

Increased energy

How do you get your energy? Eating well and having enough rest. True, even when you are older this is the general ways to gain more energy. But when the case is low testosterone levels, supplement to boost the hormone is highly needed, Maxx Test 300. You know, the male hormone does not only deal with sex drive as it also gives the fuel to stay active and full of spirit. Although it is good to increase your energy when your age is no longer young with this supplement, do not take it excessively. Do follow the suggested dosage for the maximum results.

Increased passion and libido

That is what most people know that testosterone has something to do with the libido, the desire to have sex. It is great to know that Maxx Test 300 has the magic to make you as passionate as when you are a young man along with the increased levels of the male hormone. If you look further, the better sex desire brings positive effects for both you yourself and your partner. No matter how long you have been with her, you are still awesome in bed and definitely she loves it. And for you, a good sex life leads you to a better health condition which makes you the happiest man on earth.

Easier to get an erection

Closely related to sex drive, it has been mentioned that testosterone stimulates the brain to produce a particular substance that helps you to get an erection before sex and the spontaneous ones such as in the middle of your sleep. Now when you have no more problem with the low levels of the hormone, you are going to be fine with erections. This is one of the most important thing for men, isn’t it?

Better-built muscle

Age that is no longer young is not the reason to have loose muscle and fatty body. There are elder men out there who still have well-built body although they already have grey hair. What does it mean? The hormone works well on their body system and fortunately you can have it too with Maxx Test 300. It helps your body to build your muscle and burn the fat quicker thus flat and muscular belly is not impossible for you to have. Psst, be ready to see the amazement from your surroundings, you are impressive.

Better focus

It is amazing to know that for men, the ability to focus and concentrate to something is not only affected by their behavior and intelligence. The chemical inside the body called testosterone also plays a key role here. Maxx Test 300 gives you another chance to have a sharp mind by being able to concentrate more on what you are doing due to the increased hormone. To sum up, the supplement does good to both your physical and mental performance so do not hesitate to order for the trial bottle and see what happens. Spread the good news to everyone around you as all men deserve to feel forever young.

Spartagen XT – Best Testosterone Booster on the Market?

spartagen xtSpartagen XT Review – Many men have reported experiencing the side effects of declining testosterone levels, especially as they reach the age of 40 and beyond. Some men even begin to experience these same side effects as early as their early 30’s. Many experts blame our poor nutritionally dense western diet, our sedentary lifestyle and lack of exercise, and environmental factors such as poor air quality and poor food quality compared to years ago.

I am a little embarrassed to admit that I began experiencing these issues fairly early in my 30’s. It took some time to pinpoint the source of these issues. I first addressed my diet and began exercising faithfully. I did feel a little better at that point, but was still suffering from an overall lack of energy and stamina, and a distinct difficulty in losing weight and building muscle no matter how hard I worked out.

So I did some research and found that I may benefit from a natural testosterone booster. I wasn’t ready to anything quite as drastic or expensive as talk to my doctor about a prescription for testosterone injections, so I figured I would go the natural route first. I did a ton of research and tried a few products, but overall was quite disappointed in the results, or lack thereof. That all changed when I was talking to a friend and he recommended Spartagen XT. Normally I don’t take advice from friends, especially regarding my health, but this guy is really a man’s man. He was always dating some hot, young girl, working out, and he was very successful. Now I wasn’t looking to emulate his exact lifestyle, but I was more than intrigued when he told how great he felt after taking this supplement.

Spartagen XT’s website claims that the product will support healthy testosterone levels and restore all of those things that make a man feel like a man: energy, stamina, a feeling of well-being, and better workouts in the gym. It all sounded a bit to good to be true, but I figured it was worth a shot. So I ordered a couple of bottles for myself. I decided I was going to go all in try one last product before I gave up completely. And I have to say I am glad I did. I have never felt better. In fact I would go so far to say that I feel better than I did ten years ago!

So let’s go into a little more detail about this excellent supplement and I will let you decide for yourself.

Spartagen XT Overview

Spartagen XT is a men’s health supplement specifically designed to support healthy testosterone levels. It is targeted to men who are suffering the sife effects of decreased testosterone levels that come with aging. Spartagen XT aims to increase libido, sex drive, energy, confidence, and self-esteem. It will also aid in muscle building and fat loss when taken as directed.

The only place to purchase this product is directly from the manufacturer. The company, Edge Bioactives, offers a free trial of 14 days as well as discounts when you make more orders. The price for one bottle is a bit high at $99.99; however, it can usually be bought at a discounted price of $69.99 with manufacturer coupons available on the site. I was also impressed with the 90 day buyer protection safeguards that the company offered. Knowing that this was not some fly by night operation that was going to charge my credit card without my consent like other companies that sell these types of products made me feel like it was worth the slightly higher price.

Spartagen XT Contains 100% Natural Ingredients

Tongkat Ali 100:1 – Reported to be a sex hormone binding globulin, which basically means it prevents globulin binding. Globulin binds to free testosterone molecules which renders it unusable by the body. In laymen’s terms Tongkat Ali is reported to increase free testosterone.

Korean Red Ginseng Extract – Reported to signal release of the luteinizing hormone (LH), which spartagen xt ingredientssignals the release of your potent natural testosterone.

Butea Superba Extract – Used as an aphrodisiac in several other countries, also boost androgenic activity across the board.

Zinc – Has many different important functions in the body specific to testosterone production, too many to list here in fact.

Chrysin – Reported to inhibit the conversion of testosterone to estrogen which will no doubt increase your muscle growth, as estrogen is the enemy of muscle production and fat loss in men.

Maca – Another ancient aphrodisiac designed to prevent conversion of testosterone into estrogen.

Also included in Spartagen XT:

  • Vitamin D – 4,000IU
  • Vitamin E – 80IU
  • Vitamin B6 – 12mg
  • Magnesium – 50mg

Spartagen XT Product Details and Recommended Use

The label contains all of the ingredients of the supplement along with the amounts of each ingredient. There are no cheap proprietary blends included in Spartagen XT. The product website also lists the ingredients along with a brief explanation of each one. The product is also tested randomly for purity, safety, and freshness. The three main products are Tongkat Ali, Caltrops, Vitamin B6, Vitamin D, and Magnesium. Tongkat Ali has shown promise in studies for increasing libido and semen quality and quantity. Caltrops has been shown to be an overall immune booster that also has a positive effect on the endocrine system. Vitamin B6 can help males become more aroused and also has countless benefits to the entire body. Vitamin D promotes hormones, muscle growth, and benefits the immune system. Finally, the mineral Magnesium has countless benefits as well, and is a crucial mineral for every cell in the body.

Spartagen XT works extremely well at the recommended does of 2 capsules per day. Results can be seen fairly quickly (about 2 weeks) and the product does not need to be cycled on and off unlike prescription and illegal testosterone products. Spartagen XT is completely safe for long term use.

Advantages of Spartagen XT

  • Spartagen XT offers full 90-day customer protection.
  • All ingredients are listed on the bottle (no cheap proprietary formulas).
  • Substantial discounts with larger orders and free trial offer included.
  • Many customer reviews have shown this to be an effective supplement.
  • All active ingredients are 100% natural.
  • Product is shipped in discreet packaging.

Disadvantages of Spartagen XT

  • Spartagen XT is only available for purchase online directly from the manufacturer.
  • It takes a couple of weeks to see and feel results, but this is typical of natural supplements.
  • Price is a bit high at $69 per bottle (like most things in life, you get what you pay for) but it decreases the more you order.

Spartagen XT – The Bottom Line

Spartagen XT is a high-end testosterone boosting product that includes only the best ingredients. All these ingredients have all been shown to have a positive effect on healthy testosterone levels and male sexual health. This is one product that can replace up to three different supplements in your arsenal. It can replace whatever you are taking to boost testosterone. It can also replace anything you take for sexual health as well as for boosting your results in the gym. There are other products you could buy for these purposes; however, none that will fulfill all the goals that Spartagen XT can fulfill.

Personally, I felt the results myself so I feel very good about recommending this product. After many unsuccessful ventures into men’s health products of all kinds, only Spartagen XT actually delivered on its promises. The price is a bit higher than other supplements, but not only does it work better, it also gets significantly cheaper the more you order. So if you are looking to feel like you used to in your 20’s, in and out of the bedroom and the gym, then Spartagen XT is the right choice for you. If that isn’t enough, they are one of the only supplements in this industry that offer and back up there refund policy. So order Spartagen XT risk free and enjoy the results.

MMUSA Male Reviews – Expert Reviews and Honest Results

mmusa maleMMUSA has been around for years, offering all-natural supplements for improving physical performance. Consequently, when I heard MMUSA released a new male enhancement supplement I had to know more.

MMUSA Male is said to “stop time in its tracks.” According to advertisements, it’s engineered to block estrogen, progesterone, and dihydrotestosterone to effectively boost testosterone levels.

Supposedly, Male will enable you to “keep the best body you can” by fighting signs of age.

What Does MMUSA Male Offer?

According to the official website, Male offers the following benefits:

  • Natural anti-aromatizing agent
  • Blocks DHT/estrogen
  • Suppresses male breast growth
  • Preserves alpha male vitality
  • Supports healthy hormone balance
  • Promotes uro-genital function

Assuming MMUSA Male could really achieve all these benefits then this would make a great supplement for men. However, I can’t help but be a little skeptical.

When a product sounds too good to be true, it probably is . . . can MMUSA Male deliver its promises?

Ingredient Information

Male contains an 1869 mg proprietary blend of the following ingredients:

  • Coenzyme A This enzyme acts as a catalyst to accelerate chemical reactions. It initiates hundreds of important processes in the body, including metabolism and digestion. CoA, combined with certain B vitamins, is necessary for energy production. While CoA is essential for numerous roles in the body, there are no clinical studies verifying CoA supplementation has a positive impact on sexual health and performance.
  • Calcium D-Glucarate Calcium d-glucarate is a naturally occurring chemical called glucaric acid. It is believed to lower estrogen levels and prevent prostate cancer. However, there is not enough evidence to support this use.
  • Diindolymethane (DIM) DIM is an amino acid involved in protein production. It boosts the immune system and may be an effective immunity booster. DIM may support enzyme activity for improved estrogen metabolism. Some experts believe DIM increases the levels of “good” estrogens while reducing “bad” estrogens. This aids in the elimination of active estrogen in the male body, increasing free testosterone levels. Studies even suggest DIM may protect against prostate cancer. [1]
  • Chamomile Extract Said to be the world’s most soothing herb, this ingredient is commonly used to relieve anxiety and insomnia. MMUSA male contains standardized extract containing 5% apigenin. Apigenin is a flavonoid which may prevent renal damage and treat neurological diseases. While animal studies are promising [2] [3], further human research is needed to confirm these uses.
  • Green Tea Extract Green tea is a natural source of caffeine and antioxidants. It increases energy levels while eliminating toxins, making it a reliable fat burner. [4] While these two traits are useful to maintaining overall health and wellbeing, there is not enough clinical evidence linking green tea with sexual performance.
  • Bioperine Bioperine increases the bioavailability of other nutrients. Although it does not have a direct impact on your health alone, it enhances the effectiveness of the other ingredients in MMUSA Male by increasing their absorption.

I can’t help but be a little skeptical of proprietary blends. Although some of the ingredients are useful for improving overall health, other ingredients may cause negative side effects when used incorrectly.

Since I don’t know the ingredient concentrations, it’s impossible to tell if MMUSA Male contains too much or too little of a particular ingredient to be safe and effective.

Side Effects and Safety Concerns

Many ingredients inside MMUSA Male lack the necessary research to determine their full effects, both positive and negative.

However, consumers should be aware that caffeine found in green tea is known to cause negative side effects such as dizziness, nausea, anxiety, insomnia, and mood swings.

Additionally, some medications are known to interact with the ingredients in MMUSA Male. If you are taking medications, consult your doctor to ensure it’s safe for you.

How to Use MMUSA Male

MMUSA Male, like many other MMUSA products, is fairly easy to use. Simply take 3 capsules daily with water, preferably on an empty stomach.

Product Pricing

I shopped around for the best MMUSA Male distributors and here’s what I found:

  • AllStarHealth.com: $29.99
  • SupplementCentral.com: $30.95
  • Amazon.com:$36.64
  • MMUSA.com:$44.99

More About the Manufacturers

MMUSA was originally established in 1995, and since then, the company has tested “100’s of formulas in search of the most powerful performance enhancers known to science.”

Although MMUSA is not accredited with the Better Business Bureau, the company received an A+ rating on a scale of A+to F. Zero complaints were filed in the last 3 years, which is impressive to say the least.

Pick It or Pitch It?

MMUSA Male offers a few good ingredients for improving overall health. However, these few ingredients are not strong enough to compensate for the lack of clinical research on the remaining ingredients.

The undisclosed ingredient concentrations and the lack of consumer reviews make me hesitant to recommend the product, as there is no evidence to show that it actually works.

Although the price is affordable, MMUSA Male is not the best supplement available. Why waste your time on a less-than-superior product?

Lipofuze

lipofuzeThe diet pill Lipofuze is here to change the way you think about weight loss. No doubt you’ve heard effective, maintainable weight loss only comes about with eating fewer calories and burning more of them. But, with Lipofuze, that adage doesn’t have to be true anymore.

With typical weight loss, people mostly lose water and muscle mass. But with Lipofuze, you’ll not only burn fat cells but allow muscles to grow instead of shrink. Lipofuze also keeps appetite low and amps up metabolism, further improving weight loss.

Lipofuze’s Ingredients

How can Lipofuze bring about weight loss that doesn’t rely on the old standbys of diet and exercise? Here’s the scoop on Lipofuze’s weight loss ingredients.

Green Coffee Bean Extract. Before they’re roasted, coffee beans are green. In this natural state, green coffee beans contain high concentrations of chlorogenic acid. This component increases metabolic action while decreasing glucose release.

A long-term study of green coffee bean extract confirmed chlorogenic acid’s weight loss capabilities. Over 22 weeks, study participants took various green coffee bean extract dosages. At the end of the study, average measured weight loss was 17 pounds. [1]

Irvingia Gabonensis. Irvingia gabonensis has dual weight loss effects: it decreases appetite while it burns fat. Multiple human studies show irvingia gabonensis powerfully encourages fat loss.

Lipofuze Supplement Facts

In one study, people taking irvingia gabonensis lost 5.26% body weight on average, compared to only 1.32% in the placebo group. And that study only lasted one month! [2]

Another irvingia gabonensis study produced even more dramatic results. Using just 150 mg irvingia gabonensis extract twice daily, people lost not only pounds but inches around their waist. Even more significant, their body fat decreased by 6.3%! [3]

GreenSelect Phytosome. GreenSelect Phytosome is a standardized green tea extract. That means it contains a potent concentration of the chemicals that make green tea an excellent fat burner.

Although some brand-name ingredients aren’t independently tested, GreenSelect Phytosome is different. Over 90 days, 50 people using GreenSelect Phytosome lost nearly 3 times as much weight as the placebo group. Men in this study also achieved a smaller waistline thanks to GreenSelect Phytosome. [4]

Coenzyme Q-10. Coenzyme Q-10 plays vital roles in many organs and chemical reactions. Though it’s not a true vitamin, coenzyme Q-10 is required by mitochondria to create ATP, an important energy molecule. [5] Thus, metabolic efficiency relies on coenzyme Q-10.

Caffeine Anhydrous. In addition to boosting energy and improving focus, caffeine encourages the body to spend energy from fat and calories. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition even published a study showing caffeine’s ability to increase energy expenditure. [6] So, caffeine further increases Lipofuze’s fat-burning power.

What Makes Lipofuze A Top Diet Pill

The Lipofuze formula consistently produces results and receives high praise from people who used it to shed their extra pounds. The following reasons make it clear why Lipofuze is a trusted diet pill.

1. Clinically proven ingredients.
Lipofuze’s ingredients aren’t just random natural herbs only tested on rats. People taking these ingredients in quality scientific trials lost weight. Consequently, the ingredients produce the same results in Lipofuze they did in those clinical studies.

2. Ingredients in tested dosages.
Of course, proven ingredients only work in tested dosages and potencies. That’s why each Lipofuze serving contains dosages that resulted in weight loss during clinical trials.

3. Targets multiple weight loss goals.
Even with just 5 ingredients, Lipofuze affects multiple weight loss needs. Green coffee bean extract, irvingia gabonensis, and Green Select Phytosome all attack fat cells. But at the same time, they reduce appetite to prevent calorie intake that cancels their fat-burning effects. Plus, Lipofuze contains caffeine to boost energy and further stimulate metabolism.

4. Money-back guarantee.
Lipofuze stands head-and-shoulders above other diet pills when it comes to getting more bang for your buck. But in case you don’t get the results you want, Lipofuze makers offer a 90-day money-back guarantee. They honor this no matter a customer’s reason for requesting a refund.

5. Fast results that work long-term.
People taking Lipofuze don’t have to wait long to see their weight drop on the scale. Most users experience noticeable weight loss right away. Even better, these results don’t diminish over time. People using Lipofuze for 6 months or longer keep losing weight.

Lipofuze Pricing

To qualify for the money-back guarantee, it’s best to purchase this diet pill at Lipofuze.com. A 1-month supply sells for $49.95.

But, purchasing 2 or 3 months’ worth of Lipofuze is more economically friendly. It’s only $79.95 for 2 bottles and $109.95 for 3.

How to Get Optimum Results with Lipofuze

A Lipofuze serving is 2 capsules per day. Because Lipofuze contains caffeine, it’s best to use it earlier in the day to avoid unnecessary wakefulness at night.

On its own, Lipofuze is a potent diet pill. Some Lipofuze users lost weight without altering their diet or exercise habits. Of course, eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly while taking Lipofuze enhances weight loss. Plus, those are good habits to maintain health.

Occasionally, Lipofuze users lose weight fast—dropping more than 1 pound per day. Though it sounds nice, this weight loss rate is unhealthy. If this happens to you, decrease the dosage to 1 capsule per day.

Lipofuze, A Dependable Diet Pill

With amazing ingredients, reasonable pricing, and proven results, Lipofuze is a diet pill you can depend on to get you to your weight loss goals. And, thanks to the generous 90-day money-back guarantee, there’s no risk to your wallet in trying Lipofuze. If you’re ready to say goodbye to unwanted fat forever, give Lipofuze the opportunity to make that happen.

Liponox

liponoxXtreme Pharmaceutical Innovations wasn’t kidding around when it created Liponox. Loaded with fat burners, energy boosters, and appetite suppressants, Liponox is a serious diet pill for people who are serious about weight loss.

How many other diet pills can boast 99.3% user satisfaction? Liponox may be the only one.

With a statistic like that, Liponox is clearly not a diet pill to be taken lightly. Inspecting Liponox up close reveals why its formula satisfies so many users.

What Ingredients Give Liponox Its Weight Loss Powers?

Liponox uses only ingredients that caused dramatic weight loss when tested against placebo in human volunteers. Consequently, these ingredients make Liponox a powerful, reliable fat burner.

Irvingia Gabonensis
Irvingia gabonensis comes from Africa and Southeast Asia where people have used it for centuries to prevent weight gain. More recently, scientists began studying irvingia gabonensis’s weight loss effects.

In a 10 week study, 50 participants taking 150 mg irvingia gabonensis twice daily lost an average of 28.2 pounds, including a significant percentage of body fat. They even saw their waistlines shrink by 7 inches on average.[1] Those numbers are even more amazing when you consider their daily calorie intake was still around 2700 calories.

Cissus Quadrangularis
This plant is popular in both African and Ayurvedic traditional medicine.[2] Studies show cissus quadrangularis contributes greatly to weight loss on its own. But, it is even more effective when combined with irvingia gabonensis.

The most promising cissus quadrangularis weight loss study tested both cissus quadrangularis and a cissus-irvingia combination against a placebo.

Those taking 150 mg cissus quadrangularis twice daily lost approximately 20 pounds in 10 weeks. That represented a nearly 15% body fat reduction.

But, the best results occurred in those taking both cissus quadrangularis and irvingia gabonensis, for a total of 250 mg twice daily. They dropped an average of 26 pounds over 10 weeks, nearly 3 pounds per week! That was a 20% body fat loss.[2]

Phytosome Green Tea
Green tea by itself has many health benefits. Scientists boast it fights or prevents cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and dementia.[3]

In addition, green tea contains chemicals capable of burning fat. Phytosome green tea extract is standardized to contain an effective dose of those chemicals. And, the research proves it.

In a clinical trial of Phytosome green tea, participants lost nearly 30 pounds in 90 days. They also ate a low-calorie diet. But, it cannot be credited with causing the weight loss: the placebo group lost only 11 pounds on the same diet.[4]

Green Coffee Bean Extract
Green coffee beans have astonishing fat-burning powers. These powers come from chlorogenic acid, a chemical found abundantly in unroasted green coffee beans.

Green coffee bean extract with 50% chlorogenic acid induced significant weight loss in one study.[5] That’s the same chlorogenic acid strength found in Liponox.

Those are Liponox’s most powerful and proven ingredients. But, in order to provide an energy and fat-burning boost, Liponox also contains guarana, yerba mate, kola nut, and dicaffeine malate. These caffeine sources stimulate extra calorie burning and mental alertness.

Is Liponox Expensive?

Because Liponox contains high-quality ingredients, you might expect it to have a hefty price tag. Actually, a 1-month supply costs just $59.95. And, the more you buy, the more you save. Two Liponox bottles are only $99.95. The best value is 3 bottles for $139.95. No matter which package you choose, though, you know you’re getting a potent, effective diet pill.

Lipnox also comes with a consumer-friendly money-back guarantee. Customers have 90 days to return Liponox if it didn’t meet their expectations. Even if a whole bottle is empty, Liponox’s makers will still grant a refund. That amount of company confidence in a diet pill is rare.

What Are the Usage Directions?

Liponox is safe and easy to use. Take 1-2 capsules with breakfast and 1-2 capsules with lunch.

On the first few days you use Liponox, stick to 1 capsule with each meal. Then increase your dosage if you want to amplify your weight loss. To be safe, never take more than 10 capsules in 24 hours.

It’s not essential to diet and exercise with Liponox. Some people lost weight using Liponox without making big lifestyle changes. But, being more active and eating right definitely enhances Liponox’s benefits.

Will Liponox Cause Side Effects?

All Liponox ingredients are 100% natural. Most people tolerate Liponox and don’t notice any side effects. They just experience dramatic weight loss.

Some people have experienced allergic reactions to ingredients in Liponox. If you fall into this category, avoid using Liponox.

Is Liponox the Diet Pill for You?

Most diet pills don’t contain only potent, proven ingredients or offer a 90-day money-back guarantee. But, Liponox isn’t most diet pills.

Unlike its competition, Liponox delivers results with an ingredient formula guaranteed to get rid of not just unwanted pounds but unwanted fat.

If you’re serious about losing weight this time around, Liponox is ready to magnify your desire and make it a reality.

Test X180 Ignite Review – Everything You Need to Know!

test x180 igniteWhether you’re wanting to experience more noticeable results at the gym or improve your sex life, every man can benefit from an increase in free testosterone levels. But can testosterone levels be safely increased? What’s the best way to increase testosterone levels? The fact that you’re asking these questions is a good sign. Some testosterone-boosting products can be dangerous and even contain illegal substances, making it important to do your research before trying something new.

Force Factor’s new Test X180 Ignite claims an all-in-one safe, natural approach to drastically increasing free testosterone levels, thus enhancing your sex life, muscle mass, and confidence level. Though the user reviews on this product are enthusiastically positive and reassuring, we decided to examine the research and science behind Test X180 Ignite to determine it’s safety and efficacy.

How Does Test X180 Ignite Work?

Test X180 Ignite features Testofen, the patented extract of Trigonella Foenum-Graecum (also known as Fenugreek) from a plant native to the Indian subcontinent.[1] Fenugreek is a versatile herb that contains over 100 phytochemical constituents, including Steroidal Saponins. It has become a popular ingredient in testosterone-boosting and male-enhancement products after proving in a variety of clinical trials to enhance libido, muscle mass, and sexual performance. Test X180 Ignite combines potent amounts of Testofen with other clinically-proven testosterone-boosting ingredients such as Horny Goat Weed Extract and Avena Sativa; these compounds stimulate the adrenal glands on top of the kidney which then create and release excess amounts of free testosterone.

Test X180 Ignite also utilizes the fact that exercise increases testosterone production; stimulating muscle mass, such as lifting weights or doing resistance training, naturally enhances testosterone production. The more you stimulate your muscles, the greater your testosterone boost will be. For this reason, Test X180 Ignite contains stimulating ingredients such as Caffeine and EGCG (from Green Tea) to enhance energy and mental focus, providing you the boost you need to push yourself even farther at the gym. All of these factors work together to provide a substantial testosterone boost – and it’s no secret that more testosterone means larger muscles, greater strength, enhanced libido, and a better sex life.

Testosterone-Boosting Ingredients

Test X180 Ignite utilizes natural ingredients known to boost free testosterone levels and supported by clinical research. The key ingredients and their background, research, and use can be found below:

Caffeine – Caffeine provides a boost of energy and sharpens mental clarity to provide you with the motivation you need to work out, enhancing the effects of other testosterone-boosting ingredients. One clinical trial performed in 2004 found that intake of caffeine eliminated performance deficits[2] and another, performed in 2008, found that caffeine intake was positively correlated with an increase in free testosterone levels.[3]

Testofen – Testofen, extracted from the potent Fenugreek seed, has been shown to safely and effectively increase levels of free testosterone in the male body. In 2011, a double-blind randomized placebo controlled study discovered that supplementing Testofen significantly increased libido, sexual arousal, orgasm, and satisfaction with muscle strength, energy, and well-being.[4]

EGCG – EGCG, one of the active ingredients found in Green Tea, increases metabolism and burns through fat to reveal the rock-hard muscle mass you’re building underneath. EGCG also has a protective effect on the heart and liver, keeping your vital organs healthy as you push your body to it’s limits for a ripped physique.[5]

Horny Goat Weed Extract – Horny Goat Weed Extract contains the active ingredient Icariin, a compound with a long history as an aphrodisiac and libido enhancer. In 2006, a randomized single-blind clinical trial found that intake of Icariin significantly boosted free circulating levels of testosterone and successfully treated hypoandrogenism.[6]

Avena Sativa Extract – Avena Sativa Extract, from wild oats, has been cultivated and used across European countries for centuries to increase testosterone levels and sex drive. Several clinical trials have found that intake of Avena Sativa Extract increases sex drive, enhances erections, and improves pleasure during sex.[7]

What Makes Test X180 Ignite Stand Out?

Many men seek to transform their bodies, enhance their sex drive, and boost their confidence. Unfortunately, these men will often go to extremes that put their health in danger; many men will even take multiple supplements at once because one alone won’t do the trick. We love Test X180 Ignite because it is both safe and effective, providing everything a man needs to increase free testosterone and reenergize his life all in one place, without the dangers. Test X180 Ignite takes a natural yet effective approach to upsurge free testosterone, muscle enhancement, and libido. Reviews from users who have tried Test X180 Ignite are genuine and extremely positive, and the clinical trials behind Test X180 Ignite can be easily found to verify results. Test X180 Ignite gives men the option to naturally increase testosterone, jumpstart their energy, enhance libido, boost confidence, and build muscle without any dangerous side effects.

Test X180 Ignite – The Manly Man’s Solution

Turn your mojo up a notch and spice up your sex life with Test X180 Ignite new from Force Factor. The potent all-in-one free testosterone boosting formula of Test X180 Ignite provides a safe, natural approach to increased testosterone with powerful ingredients such as Fenugreek, Wild Oats, and Horny Goat Weed. Just one bottle of Test X180 Ignite will make jaws drop at the gym and in the bedroom as you build beefy muscles and experience a boost in libido. Don’t settle for mediocre; impress your friends, your girlfriend, and even yourself as you discover what a substantial testosterone increase can do for you. After digging deeper into the research, science, and development of this product, we highly recommend Test X180 Ignite as the testosterone-increasing product of choice for men ready to reenergize their life and experience results.
