Herbal pre-workout support (containing caffeine): look for a supplement containing L-tyrosine, Green tea, catechins L-citrulline, Citrus aurantium, Caffeine (anhydrous), African mango 4:1. These ingredients may promote fat-burning and enhance energy. Green tea appears to help activate the body’s “thermogenic activity” and may reduce appetite as well it promotes the use of calories as energy and thus may assist our “fat-fighting” efforts. The caffeine is shown to improve fat-burning during workout. It can enhance your performance and recovery during explosive as well as endurance activities. Citrulline may also increase exercise performance by increasing the availability of amino acids in your blood. It also may reduce the amount of ammonia your body produces during exercise.
In Lipids Health and Disease (2005), the efficacy of Irvingia gabonensis seeds (African Mango) in the management of obesity was tested in a double-blind randomized study involving 40 subjects with an average age of 42.4 years. Twenty-eight subjects received Irvingia gabonensis (1.05 g three times a day for one month) while 12 were on placebo. The same diet was fed to all the participants. At the end, the Irvingia group lost 5% body weight while the placebo group lost 1%. The obese patients under Irvingia gabonensis treatment also had a significant decrease of total cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, triglycerides, and an increase of HDL-cholesterol, while none of these changes were noted in those given the placebo.
