BSN has formulated Ripped Edge, a comprehensive thermogenic supplement that not only assists in fat burning, but supports mood and cognitive function.* Ripped Edge delivers a metabolic boost with the use of caffeine, from both crystallized caffeine and green tea. Caffeine is a well known weight loss enhancer, with high caffeine intake associated with weight loss through thermogenesis or the utilization of energy in the production of heat, fat oxidation which is the breakdown of fat molecules into smaller fatty acids, and suppressed leptin levels which regulates appetite. Green Tea also contains the antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) which also promotes thermogenesis and fat oxidation.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine assists in weight loss by modestly boosting the ability to transport more free fatty acids into cellular mitochondria to be used as energy, therefor sparing muscle glycogen. Acetyl-L-Carnitine has other benefits besides potentially aiding weight loss, it also functions as a cognitive enhancer. As a source of acetate, it plays a role in the production of acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter used in cognitive processing and memory storage. Citicoline is another acetylcholine booster found in Ripped Edge, since it is a precursor to acetylcholine. Citicoline may also increase dopamine and norepinephrine levels, which can decrease overall stress levels and promote a feeling of general well-being.
Bitter Orange Extract is sourced from the sour orange fruit. The fruit and peel are used for weight loss with the main active ingredient being synephrine, a chemical that stimulates the sympathetic nervous system by acting on several adrenergic and serotonergic receptors. The alkaloid p-synephrine may bind to beta-3 adrenoreceptors which is associated with thermogenesis, lipolysis, glucose metabolism, and possibly reduced food intake.
This complex also includes B Vitamins Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, and Pantothenic Acid to assist in energy production, as well as a continued blend of other thermogenic promoting ingredients. Ripped Edge is perfect for athletes seeking a weight loss management protocol that supports energy, mental, and mood enhancements*.
