Behind the Formula
Our goal was to create a clean fat burning solution that did not over stimulate the body but instead targets key pathways that will help support overall mood, energy and hormonal balance which are of crucial important and usually thrown out of sequence when we begin strict dieting and calorie restriction and more often than not are neglected by most other products on the market. Over stimulating the body when you are dieting may provide a false sense of energy at first but it ultimately spikes cortisol and insulin levels and pushes your endocrine system to negative extremes often resulting in water retention, mood fluctuations, weight gain and a weakened immune system. BurnHD is a smart solution to help supplement proper diet protocol and weight management.
KSM 66® Organic Ashwagandha – A powerful adaptogenic herb, Ashwagandha can help to improve cortisol levels and thyroid function which can have positive results on your overall health and mood as well as limit weight gain and promote healthy fat loss. We use KSM-66® in our product as it is the highest concentration extract of Ashwagandha in the world.
Phosphatidylserine – By supplying healthy phospholipids to the body, Phosphatidylserine can help to limit the spike in cortisol levels experienced by exercise induced stress and promote an optimal cortisol balance in the body. Phosphatidylserine also possess neuroprotective and cognitive properties which can help with focus and “brain fog” often experienced when dieting or in a calorie deficit.
Dandelion Root – A natural diuretic that can help reduce the amount of water stored within the body.
Tyrosine – Tyrosine is a non-essential amino acid that is a precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine and can help aid in focus, concentration and mood along with providing an overall sense of well-being.
PurCaf™ – PurCaf™ is a premium organic certified caffeine extract derived from green coffee beans providing a clean and sustained release of energy in the body. We have also included Theobromine for added nootropic support and cognitive enhancement.
Olive Leaf Extract, Grains of Paradise and Iodine – Rich in Oleuropein, Olive Leaf Extract has been linked to increasing thyroid function which is of extreme importance as prolonged periods of dieting can lead to a decrease in thyroid function which plays a major factor in our metabolism and weight loss. BURN-HD further supports healthy thyroid function with the inclusion of Iodine, sourced from organic kelp. Oleuropein also shows strong thermogenic effects as it is believed to increase noradrenaline and adrenaline levels as well as target and activate brown adipose tissue which can increase energy expenditures and enhance metabolic rate. Increased activity of brown adipose tissue is further enhanced by the inclusion of Grains of Paradise which is a potent source of 6-paradol which is believed to transfer white adipose tissue (stored fat cells) into brown adipose tissue for increased thermogenesis and fat burning potential.
5-HTP – 5-HTP has been well studied for its ability to treat depression as it can increase serotonin levels which can help increase mood and sense of well-being; something many of us can benefit from while dieting. Furthermore, research suggests that increased serotonin levels can help provide a feeling of fullness and satisfaction during states of hunger which can help further support your weight loss goals.
Cayenne Pepper Fruit Extract, Evodia Rutaecarpa and Vanillin – High in capsaicin, a potent thermogenic chemical, Cayenne Pepper Extract is believed to help increase thermogenesis and core temperature as well as speed up metabolic rate. An added benefit of capsaicin it also can raise nitric oxide levels to help enhance blood flow and circulation. Evodia Rutaecarpa is high in Evodiamine which is also a potent thermogenic agent and can also help control appetite and cravings. Vanillin, like capsaicin act on similar thermogenic pathways in the body to promote overall core temperature and fat loss.
Myristica Fragrans – A “feel good” ingredient, Myristica Fragrans can increase feelings of well-being while also contributing to improved energy, focus and a sense of “euphoria” as toted by many users.
