Advantra Z®† (Standard 10 percent adrenergic amines, including synephrine, N-methyltyramine, hordenine, octopamine and tyramine from citrus aurantium 30 mg) (Fruit): 300 mg nutraMetrix MochaTonix features a patented ingredient, Advantra Z, that helps to burn fat and increase physical performance. Derived from the Chinese herb citrus aurantium, Advantra Z promotes lipolysis, the breakdown of fat, and thermogenesis, the production of body heat in muscle and fat. By promoting lipolysis and thermogenesis, Advantra Z supports the body’s fat loss. The effectiveness of Advantra Z comes from its ability to support the activity of beta-3 adrenergic receptor types, one of four receptors in every cell that support and determine the body's response to adrenergic amines such as adrenalin and noradrenalin. It binds to beta-3 receptors, which signal the fat cells to degrade stored fat.
Lipolysis and Thermogenic Support Blend:
Guarana (standardized, 36 percent caffeine) (Seed), Green Tea Extract (Leaf) Yerba Maté (Ilex paraguariensis) Guarana derives from the seeds of a South American shrub – most of which originates in Brazil. Traditional uses of guarana by natives of the Amazonian rain forest include mixing crushed seeds in foods and beverages to promote alertness and reduce occasional fatigue.
Green Tea Extract Green tea extract has been used for its health benefits for centuries in India and China. A number of beneficial health effects are related to regular consumption of green tea and dried/powdered extracts of green tea that are available in some dietary supplements.
Yerba Maté Yerba maté is an evergreen with white flowers and red fruit, found naturally only in South America. Its health-promoting parts are the dried or roasted leaves, which have proven to be a rich source of caffeine.
Noradrenalin Support Blend: L-Phenylalanine, L-Tyrosine, Taurine, Glycine: 1550 mg
L-Phenylalanine L-phenylalanine is an essential amino acid. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. The body cannot produce L-phenylalanine, so it must obtain it from diet or supplements. The main dietary sources of L-phenylalanine are high protein foods such as meat, fish, eggs and dairy products.
L-Tyrosine L-tyrosine is an essential amino acid that the body cannot produce on its own, so it must be obtained from external sources such as diet or supplementation. L-tyrosine is found naturally in all kinds of proteins. *
Taurine Taurine is a nonprotein amino acid and is found in high amounts in the brain, retina, myocardium, skeletal and smooth muscle, platelets and neutrophils. It is plentiful in the fluids of muscle, lungs and nerve tissue. Dietary taurine mainly comes from animal food sources. Taurine is also present, in lower levels, in plant food sources like seaweed.
Glycine Glycine is a simple amino acid found in the body. Glycine promotes the normal synthesis of proteins, peptides, purines, adenosine triphosphate (ATP), nucleic acids, porphyrins, hemoglobin, glutathione, creatine, bile salts, and one-carbon fragments, glucose, glycogen, L-serine and other amino acids. It supports the normal transport of noradrenalin into cells against their concentration gradient. Glycine helps promote normal glycogen storage. It helps to maintain the central nervous system.*
Herbal Adaptogen and Cognitive Support Blend:
Acetyl-L-Carnitine, Rhodiola Rosea (fruit) Ginger (Root), Gingko Biloba (24 percent flavone glycosides, six percent terpenes) (Leaf), American Ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) (Root), Korean Ginseng (Panax Ginseng)(Root), Gotu Kola (Leaf) 305 mg
Acetyl-L-Carnitine Acetyl-L-Carnitine is an amino acid that is produced in the liver and kidneys from lysine and methionine. The primary role of acetyl-l-carnitine is to support the normal transport and metabolism of long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria for beta-oxidation and energy generation. Carnitine can be also found in foods such as meat and dairy products. It helps maintain normal cognitive function and promotes memory and alertness. Carnitine has the power to enhance endurance.*
Rhodiola Rosea Rhodiola rosea , the root of rhodiola, has been used in traditional health care in other countries around the world. Rhodiola rosea is classified as an adaptogen. An adaptogen is a substance that promotes a balancing action on the body, supporting resistance to stressful conditions due to lifestyle and/or diet. Rhodiola rosea contains phenylpropanoids such as rosavin, rosarin and rosin. Other constituents include salidroside, monoterpene rosiridin, flavonoids, tannins and an essential oil. *
Ginger Ginger is a shoot-like plant with a single purple-green flower that contains a thick root from which uses for this plant originate. It is native to coastal India, but is now grown and harvested commonly in Jamaica, China, Africa and the West Indies. The root is the source of ginger’s aroma and is the source of the spice. Ginger was traditionally used to promote gastrointestinal comfort.*
Ginkgo Biloba Ginkgo biloba is sometimes called a living fossil because it is believed to be the world's oldest living species at around 200 million years. The ginkgo tree has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for over 4,000 years. Various parts of the ginkgo tree were reportedly used to maintain circulation, as a digestive aid, as a tonic for memory and as a longevity elixir. *
American and Korean Ginsengs Part of a group of adaptogenic herbs from the plant family Araliacae, Ginseng means essence of the earth in the form of a man. Seng is a term employed by Chinese medicinal root gatherers for fleshy roots used as tonics. American ginseng grows in shady woodlands with rich soils.*
Gotu Kola A vine-like plant native to India and Southeast Asia, Gotu kola increases energy levels and promotes memory.*
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) 350 mg Around 90 percent of vitamin C in the average American diet derives from fruits and vegetables. Peppers (sweet, green, red, hot red and green chili) are especially rich in vitamin C. Other good sources include citrus fruits and juices, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, collards, mustard greens, broccoli, spinach, guava, kiwi fruit, currants and strawberries. Nuts and grains contain smaller amounts of vitamin C. It is important to note that cooking destroys vitamin C activity.
Vitamin E (d-alpha-Tocopheryl Acetate) 30 IU The most valuable sources of dietary vitamin E include vegetable oils, margarine, nuts, seeds, avocados and wheat germ. Safflower oil contains large amount of vitamin E and there are trace amounts found in corn oil and soybean oil.*
B-Vitamins (Thiamin HCL,(B1),1.5 mg/Riboflavin(B2),1.7mg/ Niacin,4 mg/Niacinamide (Ascorbate),75 mg/ B6(Pyridoxine HCL),16 mg/Folic Acid,100mcg./B12 (Cyanocobalamin), 20 mcg./B5 (D-Calcium Pantothenate), 18 mg The B-vitamins are largely found in meats, beans, cereals, eggs, nuts and seeds, and Brewer’s Yeast.
The main role of B-vitamins is to produce energy, specifically acting as co-factors in the Kreb’s cycle where they turn food energy into usable energy for the body and its cells.
Magnesium (Oxide) 43 mg Foods rich in magnesium include unpolished grains, nuts and green vegetables. Green leafy vegetables are powerful sources of magnesium because of their chlorophyll content. Meats, starches and milk contain smaller amounts of magnesium. Magnesium is required for energy release and regulating our metabolism.*
Zinc (Oxide) 3 mg Zinc is largely found in fortified cereals, red meats, eggs, poultry and certain seafoods, including oysters.
It is a component of multiple enzymes and proteins. It is also involved in the regulation of gene expression. Zinc is an essential trace mineral that has functions in 300 different enzymatic reactions.
Copper (Gluconate) 400 mcg The richest sources of dietary copper derive from organ meats, seafood, nuts, seeds, wheat bran cereal, whole grain products and cocoa products. It may have some antioxidant properties and acts as a component of enzymes in iron metabolism. It is an essential trace mineral.*
Chromium (Amino Acid Chelate) 150 mcg Chromium is found naturally in some cereals, meats, poultry, brewer’s yeast, broccoli, prunes mushrooms, fish and beer. Chromium is reported to help reduce overall body fat. Many in the weight loss industry view chromium as an integral mineral in weight maintenance.*
