What is Saffron Extract?

Written by Jules Riley. Posted in Articles, Nutrition, Supplements

Half of the battle when dieting is controlling the appetite. Many diet pills help to increase metabolism but they do not help with reducing the hunger cravings. These hunger cravings can come from stress. Often time’s people will eat when they are stressed from their kids, work, or dieting. When the body is under stress it tells your brain to eat or crave sugar. This is because sugar can create a sense of well being for a short stint of time. But once this effect wears off many people can begin to feel tired, depressed and sluggish. This cycle can be very detrimental to people’s physique.

Obviously exercise and an appropriate diet are important to accomplishing these things, but sometimes this isn’t enough for the mental battle of hunger cravings. Some people rely on caffeine and stimulants to help with fighting hunger, but this can lead to harsh crashes in energy. One natural and non stimulant way to help with fighting hunger is using Saffron Extract.

A Study on Saffron Extract:

“A clinical study was conducted in May 2011 on a group of healthy and slightly overweight women over an 8-week period. These women were not restricted in their caloric intake, and were allowed to eat at will. Half of the group was fed 1 capsule of saffron extract (176.5 mg) a day, and the other half a placebo. The women kept a daily snacking log, and weight and inches lost was measured. It was found at the end of the 8-week period that the women who consumed the saffron extract had ‘a significantly greater body weight reduction than placebo.’”

As you can tell this can be a very effective way to lose weight. There are three major products that are currently on the market that contain the saffron extract. One of the products is only saffron and the other two products contain other ingredients to help boost metabolism and increase peoples resting metabolic rate.

Satietrim: This Hi-Tech product is designed to give the clinical amount of Saffron to help reduce hunger cravings and to put people in a better mood while dieting. This product does not contain any other ingredients that would cause energy and can be taken in conjunction with other diet pills.

Razzadrene: From GAT, Razzadrene helps with increase synephrine and improving weight loss. This product is a good weight loss product that can help give energy while suppressing appetite.

Keto-XT: Made by BPI, Keto-XT helps in a variety of ways to increase metabolism, metabolize fat for energy and reduce hunger cravings. This product also uses a carbohydrate blocker, which is helpful for dieting and stopping the process of sugar break down in the body.

This product has been discussed on Dr. Oz, and was shown to really help in weight loss. AS Dr. Oz mentions it is important to already be dieting and exercising when you start using Saffron. Though it is not mandatory, this way can help give the best results.

bpi b4

Hey everyone, just found out that BPI is coming out with a brand new product which will be marketed under their Diamond Series. This product is labeled as a pre-workout / diet pill and its name is BPI B4. As many of you have already caught on, BPI likes to use different ingredients that are not well known. This is not to say that they do not work, but it just makes it difficult to find information on what it does. I tried to do a little research on my own to help those of you that might be interested in what B4 is.

Here is what BPI has to say about B4

“This is the most exclusive high-end sports performance and weight loss product available anywhere,” said James Grage, Vice President of BPI Sports. “Every component of this formula was carefully developed utilizing the absolute highest standards and the most cutting-edge non-commercialized ingredients available anywhere in the world.”

I will first go over what the ingredients are and then try my best at giving credibility to what BPI B4 claims on the bottle.

BPI B4 Ingredients

B4 Ingredients

 

Niacin (as nicotinic acid)

 

– Known as B3, may cause a flush effect. It is a water soluble nutrient that helps with DNA repair, hormone regulation, and proper blood flow.

 

Caffeine (as caffeine anhydrous)

 

– One of the more common forms of caffeine, anhydrous has been shown to be more effective at absorption than through coffee or tea.

 

Dendrobium nobile (stem)

 

– BPI B4 uses a patented formula of Dendrobium extract called, DENDROMAX. Dendrobium has become very popular through the year 2012 because of the ban on Geranium. The effects of Dendrobium have been shown to help aid in weight loss and increase metabolism, while increasing your sense of well being.

 

Canavalia gladiata (seed)

 

– This is extracted from a plant called sword bean. Some studies have shown that it may help increase in the production of ATP, which is helpful during explosive exercise, and will reduce fatigue(1).

 

Psoralea corylifolia (seed)

 

– Used in Eastern Indian culture to help heal people, there is little known scientific facts. It does contain a large amount of flavonoids. P. Corylifolia extracts have been shown to act as a norepinephrine-doapmine reuptake inhibitor(2).

 

Sophora japonica (leaf) (Quercetin)

 

– Quercetin has gradually gained in popularity due to its ability to be an anti-aging agent. Many people supplements with Quercetin to help fight aging and improve overall health.

 

Red wine concentrate

- Known to be a super antioxidant. Red Wine Concentrate may contain resveratrol which has been correlated to help fight fat oxidation, and improve muscle retention.

 

Pausinystalia yohimbe (bark)

 

– One of the original fat burners on the market. Known to attack brown fat cells and improve thermogenics. It has also been thought to be an aphrodisiac.

Now that we have covered what the ingredients are in BPI, let us take a look at the three main bullet points in which B4 claims to accomplish.

Adipose Tissue Regulator

- I would say that this is highly likely. The combination of caffeine anhydrous, Red wine concentrate and Pausinytalia yohimbe may be a very effective way to attack adipose fat.

CNS Stimulant

- Absolutely! Caffeine Anhydrous with Dendrobium will activate the CNS and help you stay alert and focused for an extend period of time.

BPI 1MR vs EXT GO

Written by bigredhulk. Posted in Articles, Pre-Workouts, Reviews, Supplements

The battle between the two most potent preworkouts on the market, 1MR vs. GO. BPI 1MR has been around longer and has been reformulated a few times to the perfection that it is at now, and EXT GO has just hit the market but is picking up steam. Both product are not for the faint of heart, and give a wicked amount of energy.

 

Let us take a look first at the new 1MR by BPI

1MR super concentrate blend has a 3,500mg proprietary blend that uses Arginine AKG as their first ingredient. Arginine is the main pump ingredient used in 1.M.R along with Taurine to help expand muscle volume. Beta-Alanine with Creatine has been shown to help increase muscle endurance and strength. As many of you already know, one scoop of 1.M.R is enough to get you through your entire workout.

 

So what is different about EXT GO?

EXT GO is a very potent stimulant pre workout formula, but uses some different ingredients to help improve muscle performance. EXT Go has a 3,635mg proprietary blend that has creatine has its first main ingredient. Creatine is one of the most proven muscle performance supplements on the market. Ext Go also uses Citrulline Malate instead of Arginine for nitric oxide production. Though Arginine AKG is great for immediate pump effect, Citrulline Malate has been shown to help increase nitric oxide production for an extended period of time. Go also has Beta-Alanine but adds Trans-Alanyl-L-Glutamine to help improve mTOR. mTOR is a process where yrou body finds energy to fuel muscle. Improving mTOR can help improve muscle endurance along with fat metabolism.

 

BPI 1.M.R. vs. EXT GO

 

Many of you may have already tried 1MR but do you know how it compares? There is only one way to find out, try EXT GO and see what works best for you. Both products are highly potent and only need a scoop to produce the energy to get through a workout. From personal use EXT GO does not have a weird after taste and their flavoring is better than BPI, but this is my opinion and could be argued.

Jack3d Micro Vs. Jack3d

Jack3d Going Out Of Stock – Limited Supply
buy jack3d

buy jack3d
If you are reading this you may be wondering why USP Labs came out with a new formula of Jack3d.  USP Labs works well and gives many people great workouts, so why would USP Labs change the formula of Jack3d? There are many thoughts to this, and it may be in part to the geranium extract that they are using, but I would also have to argue that more and more companies have a concentrated pre workout mix. Driven Sports has Craze, Bpi made 1MR Concentrate and now we have Jack3d Micro.

 

What makes Micro different?

Micro uses a more superior pump matrix. The original formula uses Arginine AKG which is only useful for about 15 min, and then it fades out. It uses Agmatine and Arginine Nitrate. Agmatine has been shown to be more powerful than Arginine in producing Nitric Oxide. Arginine Nitrate may look familiar because it is also in USP Labs Yok3d. Arginine Nitrate is a more sustained release of Nitric Oxide because of it being a Nitrate. Jack3d Micro should give you a pump for your entire workout.

 

As hinted above the Micro formula no longer has Geranium in it. Instead the Micro formula uses two unique ingredients that you will soon see in many other stimulant based supplements. 3,4-dihydroxycinnamic acid and Norcoclaurine have been shown to enhance mental focus as well as help with NO production. Many stimulants, including geranium, restrict blood flow and do not allow you to get the most out of your pre workout. These stimulant boosters in the new  Micro can improve absorption and open up the veins to give you a better pump.

Jack3d Micro vs Jack3d


Is Jack3d Micro Better than Jack3d?

 

Only time will tell if Micro is better than the original formula. Looking at the ingredient listing I would say that  if you drink Jack3d Micro 30 Minutes before a workout, after a high carbohydrate meal I think you will get better muscle pumps than the original Jack3d. The new stims in  Micro will be the next big thing, and has been seen in other products already. I think that the new formula will give good results, but eating properly beforehand will really impact the results in the gym due to the Nitrates.
