Can both Men and Women use LIPO-DREX?
Yes, anyone looking for an advanced thermogenic weight-loss supplement can use LIPO-DREX. Individual tolerance to stimulants vary by individual so starting with one capsule is recommended regardless of gender. We recommend you read the entire Warning before starting LIPO-DREX. If you want to lose fat, maintain muscle and increase energy and focus, than LIPO-DREX should be your number one choice.
How is LIPO-DREX different than other formulas?
LIPO-DREX is like nothing on the market today! The development of the product started with an in-depth review of the challenges people face when losing fat - whether for a competition or just to look and feel better. The one item that continued to be apparent is that throughout the fat loss process, muscular size and tone would fade. This is where iSatori's Research and Development team jumped into action. Not only did they develop and incredible product with leading thermogenic and focus attributes, they engineered C3GMax™ to trigger nutrient partitioning, shuttling nutrients away from fat cells and into muscle. This technology solidifies LIPO-DREX the most advanced fat-loss product that iSatori has ever produced! ∆†
What are each of the ingredients, and what does the science say about them?
Here is a basic overview of the function of each ingredient in LIPO-DREX: C3GMax™
- An exact, proprietary combination of Aronia Powder, Blue Corn Extract and Blackberry Extract standardized to Cyanidin-3-O-Glucoside. This is the engine that powers nutrient partitioning, aiding in decreased fat and increased muscle hardness.
Green Tea Extract
- Increases resting metabolic rate to burn more calories, driving overall weight loss.
Coleus Forskohlli Extract
- Aids in the loss of fat but also the maintenance of lean muscle.
- Aids in the release and metabolism of fatty acids supporting energy and fat loss.
- Supports nutrient partitioning by stimulating the AMPK master regulating enzyme.∆†
- Increases energy and focus via the central nervous system. Assists in caloric expenditure and triggers thermogenesis.
- To help prevent the energy crash so familiar to caffeine, TeaCrine keeps the energy coming by adding an extended release ingredient. This critical component was specifically selected to keep your energy high until the absolute last rep of the workout—no matter how high the volume.
- This natural extract works to increase adrenaline levels in the body and to mobilize fat.
Capsitherm™ Cayenne Pepper
- Cayenne pepper is an excellent source of capsaicin, capsaicinoid, and capsinoid. These molecules have been shown to increase thermogenesis and energy expenditure through activation of the vanilloid receptor. The thermogenic effect of capsaicin can be evident when you eat spicy food containing hot chilies, you begin to sweat and feel your body start to warm minutes after consuming the capsaicin.
- Shown in specific doses to extend the half-life of caffeine, in turn extending the energy and fat mobilization effects.
- A nootropic ingredient that helps with cognition, memory and focus.
- An extract from the cocoa plant, theobromine is a xanthine alkaloid that exhibits a positive effects on mood and also promotes dieresis (a mild water loss diuretic effect).
What kind of results can I expect from using it?
LIPO-DREX is a high-powered formula that can be felt from the very first dose! With a high inclusion of stimulants like caffeine and Yohimbe and nootropic (focus) ingredients such as Bacopa and Hygenamine HCL you will have almost immediate sensory feedback on energy, appetite, increased body temperature and as mentioned... focus. With continued use, fat loss is the end goal and is best achieved in combination with a structured nutrition and training program. During the transition to lower body fat, LIPO-DREX's C3GMax Nutrient Partitioning/Cutting Matrix helps divert nutrients from being stored as fat to being stored in the muscle delivering a harder, fuller muscular feeling. ∆†
Do I need to "load" or "cycle"?
LIPO-DREX is a powerful formula which is only taken once a day prior to your first meal. There is no prescribed "loading" phase due to the potency of the formula. People looking for a cutting-edge fat burner, but are sensitive to stimulants will want to assess their tolerance by starting with one capsule. Due to the potency of the formula, we also suggest using LIPO-DREX for 8 weeks followed by a break before you cycle in your next 8 weeks. It is advised that you read the entire label before use and consult with your physician prior to starting to use LIPO-DREX.
Are there any known side effects?
Beyond the increase in energy, focus, thermogenesis and muscle hardening which are desired when picking a fat burner, side effects should be minimal in people who are accustomed to utilizing similar products in their supplement routine. However, it’s always suggested that, like with any supplement or exercise program, you check with your primary physician to ensure you are in good health, and there are no contraindications with medications or existing conditions.
I weigh more than 150 pounds. Do I need to adjust the dosage for my size?
As per the label Directions, it is advised that if you are under 150 pounds, you take 1 serving (capsule) before your first meal of the day. If you are over 150 pounds you would take 2 servings (2 capsules) before your first meal of the day. Each individual has different reactions to stimulants so even if you are over 150 pounds you can assess your tolerance to LIPO-DREX by starting with 1 serving.
Can I stack LIPO-DREX with other iSatori products?
Yes, LIPO-DREX can be stacked with other iSatori products that do not contain stimulants. LIPO-DREX can be combined with BIO-GRO or L-CARNITINE LS3 for the ultimate fat loss, lean muscle experience. Since MAXON Pure Strength is stimulant free, it can also be combined with LIPO-DREX.
