This is the fat burner from my line of science-based, naturally sweetened workout supplements, LEGION.
PHOENIX is the most powerful combination of safe, natural fat burning agents available.
It’s also caffeine-free so you can still drink your coffee or pre-workout! If you use PHOENIX with a proper diet and exercise routine, you WILL lose fat faster.
The proof of PHOENIX’s superiority is in the formulation. Every serving contains the following…
Synephrine is a chemical compound found in certain types of citrus fruits (particularly the bitter variety).
It’s chemically similar to ephedrine and catecholamines (the chemicals adrenaline and noradrenaline, which cause the breakdown of fat cells), and although less potent than those two, it induces similar effects.
Research shows that supplementation with synephrine:
Naringin is a type of molecule known as a flavonoid and is found in grapefruits, oranges, and the skin of tomatoes.
Research shows it stimulates the production of a hormone called adiponectin, which is involved in the breakdown of fat cells, and activates a type of receptor in fat cells that regulates fat mobilization (the PPARα receptor).
Hesperidin is also a flavonoid and is abundant in citrus fruits, especially oranges.
While providing numerous health benefits, it’s particularly known for its ability to improve blood flow and reduce the inflammation of blood vessels.
Like naringin, hesperidin also stimulates the production of adiponectin and activates the PPARa receptor.
Research also shows that hesperidin works synergistically with synephrine and naringin to dramatically raise the basal metabolic rate.
Hordenine is a molecule produced naturally in the body.
It’s also found in certain foods including barley, millet, and sorghum, and some types of cacti.
Similar to EGCG, hordenine inhibits the activity of an enzyme responsible for breaking down chemicals that induce lipolysis.
This allows these fat burning chemicals to remain in your blood for longer periods and therefore mobilize more fat cells.
EGCG is a form of a molecule known as a catechin and is found in green tea, certain types of nuts, and carob.
While green tea catechins refer to up to six catechin molecules, EGCG is the one implicated in fat-burning effects to the largest degree.
Salicin is an anti-inflammatory agent found in foods like berries, olives, and mushrooms, and it is produced from willow bark.
Like aspirin, salicin is metabolized into salicyclic acid in the body and thus is often used as a natural analgesic and blood thinner.
Research shows that salicyclic acid inhibits the production of molecules called prostaglandins, which can hinder the metabolic effects of ephedrine and ephedrine-like compounds such as synephrine.
Through this mechanism, studies show that salicyclic acid amplifies the metabolic boost caused by ephedrine and ephedrine-like compounds.
Forskolin is found in the Indian herb Coleus forskohlii and has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat heart and respiratory disorders.
Research shows it increases blood plasma and intracellular levels of a molecule known as cAMP.
When cAMP is high, it signifies a lack of ATP (the most basic form of cellular energy in the body) and thus initiates a process to make more ATP by burning through energy reserves (body fat).
This is why studies show that supplementation with forskolin accelerates fat loss.
5-HTP is a compound involved in the metabolism of the amino acid tryptophan, which is found in foods like milk, meat, potatoes, pumpkin, and various greens.
It’s converted into serotonin in the brain, which is one of the principal neurotransmitters involved in feelings of happiness.
This is why research shows that 5-HTP increases the feeling of fullness from food and thus can help you control your food intake.
It can also reduce your cravings for carbohydrates in particular.
L-tyrosine is an amino acid found in many high-protein foods such as poultry, fish, dairy products, and nuts.
The reason we’ve included L-tyrosine is because longer-term usage of 5-HTP may deplete bodily tyrosine stores.
While most people using this product wouldn’t use PHOENIX long enough to cause a deficiency and will get plenty of tyrosine from their diets, we’ve included it as a “just in case” safety buffer.
The bottom line is this:
