The ingredients Drop Factor are max dosed with one caveat, Yohimbine HCl. Yohimbine HCl in its full dosing in Drop Factor, 2.5mg per serving, is usually very well tolerated. Some can take more, some less. Studies show that the effective dose is .2mg per kilogram of bodyweight per day. That is a LOT of Yohimbine HCl and simply too much for some people. Also, while the max dose of the other ingredients covers a wide range of weights and the two genders, Yohimbine HCl (being weight dependent) requires a varying degree of dosing and also, you need to ease into the higher doses more than other fat burning agents to assess tolerance. This is why MTS Nutrition has a Yohimbine HCl; so once you reach the maximum two capsules of Drop Factor two times per day, you can still adjust dosing by simply adding in Yohimbine HCl. It is the most thought out fat loss system ever created!
Cocoa Extract (Theobromine)
Not only does this help decrease appetite and increase fat burning, it also acts as a vasodilator and diuretic (1). Not only will it aid in fat loss, but it will also provide that extra bloodflow and PUMP, a welcome effect while losing fat, alongside the reduction in nasty, excess water weight! Even cooler, it has even been linked to having an aphrodisiac effect! (2) All of this alongside a smooth, controlled stimulant release similar to caffeine make it a must have in any fat burner and with this adequate, no BS dosing, look out!
The granddaddy of them all, Caffeine is the world's most widely used stimulant (4). Caffeine is a Central Nervous System (CNS) stimulant that has been shown to reduce fatigue as well as mobilize fatty acids resulting in fat loss. (5)
We added TeaCrine as an energy and focus enhancer to really volumize the effects of the thermogenic process without giving you a dreaded crash feeling. With longer lasting energy and added performance boost, TeaCrine is the ultimate ingredient for a well balanced fat burner.
Cayenne pepper increases thermogenesis (fat loss) by dilating blood vessels and increasing blood circulation. This helps to transport fatty acids and be BURNED! Cayenne Pepper is also use to aid digestion and relieve pain. (6)
Forskolin is the powerful active found in the herb Coleus forskohlii and can help increase lean mass (build muscle) and decrease fat mass (burn fat). Forskolin activates the enzyme adenylate cyclase, which increases cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) levels. The increase in cAMP activates hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) which breaks down stored triglycerides (bodyfat) and releases fatty acids so they can be oxidized and body fat can be decreased. Forskolin helps to increase the release of fatty acids from fat tissue allowing them to be burned for energy, leading to a decrease in body fat. (8)
Forskolin is also believed to have thyroid stimulating properties. Thyroid hormones are responsible for your metabolism. I have even known MANY fitness competitors who use this herb instead of harsh, prescription thyroid medications (when no pre-existing medical condition is present). Increasing thyroid output will accelerate your metabolic rate and lead to increased fat loss. (8) To make things even more awesome, Forskolin may increase testosterone levels in men, but not negatively affect sex hormones in women. When on decrease calories, this can be A GREAT SIDE EFFECT and can also help explain how
Forskolin prevents muscle wasting! (9) Forskolin is a vasodilator. Blood flow is VITAL for fat loss as blood flow to fat tissue, especially stubborn fat areas, is vital to the transportation of fatty acids to areas where they can be burned and can help Yohimbine HCl (explained later) do it's dirty work!
Not only are antioxidants a pivotal component to overall health and wellness, but they also decrease the production of triglycerides thus decreasing fat storage and enhancing fat loss. Anti-oxidants also increase fat used for energy during exercise, thus causing your body to burn more fat DURING exercise. The PolyphOrac Blend was designed to contain a high amount of the anti-oxidants research shows to have a fat loss effect.
Yohimbine is an alpha2 receptor antagonist and known to help LOSE FAT from PROBLEM AREAS like hips and thighs for women and lower back and love handles in men. This is VERY IMPORTANT as this is the variable we play with…. Yomhimbine blocks the alpha2 receptor, the receptor responsible for stubborn fat areas, from being activated. By blocking the alpha2 receptor with Yohimbine, the negative feedback caused by NE binding to the alpha receptors is reduced and fatty acid from those stubborn areas are released and now able to be burned.
Yohimbine has been shown to increase fat loss by increasing the amount of lipid mobilization and oxidation and blood flow to adipose tissue due to alpha2 antagonism. So Yohimbine addresses two of the fat burning principles we are trying to address: alpha2 receptor action and blood flow. The presence of low insulin found on insulin controlling diets like MachineTrainingSolutions.com makes Yohimbine work OPTIMALLY! Thus, Drop Factor contains only 2.5mg Yohimbine HCl per serving. BUT, but adding in EthiTech Yohimbine HCl at the dosing needed for you, you will get the best results possible! The scientific dose is to work up to 0.2mg per kilo of bodyweight per day. This would be 18mg for a 200lb person. This would be a LOT in the formula, thus we give you this option and it allows you to work up to this dose. (50-109)
