Lean Xtreme – Promote Fat Burning without Stimulants
Lean Xtreme – Promote Fat Burning without StimulantsJan 16th, 2011 | By Nancy Andrews | Category: Featured Product, Supplements
I don’t promote a lot of ‘fat burners’ but when something that is different comes along I’ll try it. And if it works, I’ll tell you about it. The thing is, Lean Xtreme is less a fat burner and more a body recompositioning agent. By that I mean it will help you add lean muscle while it helps your body burn fat. And, it does this all without any stimulants!
Almost ever fat burner out there uses stimulants to accelerate fat burning. Now there is nothing inherently wrong with that but if you are going to go with stimulants to encourage fat burning, you can get as good a response in many cases just by having a cup of coffee (black of course – no creamer or sugar). The downside to stimulants is that they wear off and many people report energy crashes. And they can also raise your cortisol levels chronically if you take too much too often over too long a period of time. And it can wrek havoc on your adrenal glands.
So when I read that Lean Xtreme was stimulant free, I was curious.
The way it works is it uses ECGC compounds from green tea for encouraging fat burning. Then it adds coleus forskohli for further fat burning as well as thyroid support (important for controlling belly fat) and may even increase testosterone levels.
Then it’s remaining focus it to keep your body from entering a catabolic state (muscle wasting) by controlling cortisol levels. It uses 3 compounds for this: 7-OH™, Phosphatidylserine (PS) and 5-AT™ all control cortisol and support healthy thyroid function.
Now the way these three components work varies and rather than try to relate it all, you might want to read the full write up here. But what I can tell you is that it is working for me. I’m adding lean mass and losing fat.
Finally, before I’ll recommend any supplement it has to be reasonably priced. This one is retailing for $31.99 at Bodybuilding.com for 90 capsules. At 2 or 3 capsules a day dosage you get a month to 6 week supply.
