Like any good supplement company, PhenQ advertises the specific ingredients they use with absolute confidence. We’re going to list what they are and their effects to better inform you of the product.
Capsicum Extract, which comes from certain peppers, such as chili peppers. It has thermogenic properties, which boost your body heat, which has a couple of effects.
The main thing this does is boost the rate at which your body metabolizes fat and conducts other metabolic processes, which are already quite good. However, on top of this, it also has appetite-reducing properties, making it easier and more convenient to eat less food.
Caffeine, which as we all know, is a commonly found natural stimulant. In other words, it boosts mental clarity and energy levels, as well as boosting the rate at which your body does things.
Now, “things” is quite broad, but think of it as having a similar effect to increasing your body heat, though with less fat-burning properties. In addition to this, it can help suppress your appetite as well.
Vitamin B3, also known as Niacin, helps convince your body to burn food for energy instead of keeping it around as stored adipose tissue or fat. This effect works better if you exercise; even taking a walk can help boost the effect of niacin to better help you lose weight.
Of course, it can increase hunger because your body will burn through food quicker, but that’s where the other ingredients’ appetite suppress properties come into play.
Piperine, which comes from black pepper, is another compound with thermogenic properties, meaning it raises your body heat and helps burn fat. On top of this, it has other beneficial properties. First off, it may help prevent the formation of new adipose tissue cells, and second, it can help regulate obesity-induced dyslipidemia, a condition where you have an abnormally high amount of fats inside your blood.
Chromium Picolinate, a compound found in all sorts of foodstuffs, can help control your desire for carbs and sugars, which can help regulate blood sugar levels. It does this by increasing cellular sugar uptake, which, again, reduces cravings for carbohydrates.
Nopal, which has a high fibre content. Fibre can do a couple of things for you. First, it aids in regular and normal bowel movements, and on top of that, it increases how long you stay full after you eat.
Nopal cactus, itself, has its own benefits, such as having a large concentration of essential amino acids and helping to cut down water weight. Those amino acids can help boost a lot of health factors, but primarily they’ll work on increasing energy levels.
L-Carnitine Fumarate, another compound commonly found in food, is an amino acid that aids the burning of fat to produce energy. This can help make up for the caloric shortfall caused by dieting with the goal of weight loss, burning fat stores to keep the rest of your body working optimally. It can also help boost energy levels!
Calcium Carbonate, which is good for your bones and is a chemical messenger. Calcium carbonate, when it contacts the brain, tells it that the body is full up on fats, and it should get to burning fat. Your brain will also suppress appetite to avoid wasting food when you already have enough fat to burn at the moment for energy and nutrients.
α-Lacys Reset, which is a combination of other compounds and an element, namely Alpha-Lipoic Acid, Cysteine Base, and Magnesium. These three, working together, aid metabolism and thermogenesis, or increasing body heat. These two factors, as discussed previously, boost fat burning in the body by quite a bit because the fat is what is burned for heat.
