Bodybuilding.com’s Revel® Morning Ignition is a high quality supplement that will kickstart your day by helping you get into a fat burning state more effectively. Ketosis is a state when your body uses ketones instead of glucose for fuel. Generally, ketosis can be achieved by fasting longer than 72 hours and by following a low carbohydrate and higher fat diet for several days afterwards (1). However, you can support this process by taking this blend of raspberry ketone, garcinia cambogia, green tea, caffeine, and green coffee bean.
Raspberry ketone is an aromatic phenolic compound naturally occurring in red raspberries, kiwifruit, grapes, peaches, and apples (2). It may have potential weight loss benefits by enhancing fat metabolism (3). Although there have only been in vitro and animal studies, those clinical trials have demonstrated numerous nutraceutical properties such as promoting healthy body fat percentage, enhancing fat metabolism, and inhibiting the absorption of dietary fat (4)(5).
Garcinia cambogia is an Indian fruit in which the peel contains high amounts of hydroxycitric acid (HCA). In vitro and in vivo animal studies have shown that HCA may inhibit lipid synthesis (6). In a meta-analysis of 8 studies and 530 human participants, garcinia cambogia supplementation may have an effect on weight, body mass index (BMI), body fat percentage, and waist circumference (7). In one human study, participants showed an enhancement of fat metabolism in both men and women (8).
Green tea and its major component epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) may have benefits in supporting overall wellness against a variety of diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease (9). Several double blind placebo studies have found that daily consumption of green tea has been associated with weight support and fat metabolism especially when taken for periods of at least 12 weeks versus a control group (10).
Green coffee bean extract and its constituents of chlorogenic acid or CGA-7 may contribute to supporting fat metabolism and insulin sensitivity (11). A meta-analysis of 16 randomly controlled trials was associated with regulating within a normal range total cholesterol, triglycerides, body weight, blood pressure, and fasting plasma glucose (12). A scientifically rigorous human study of 60 overweight participants, found that CGA-7 supplementation over 12 weeks led to the enhancement of body weight metabolism, BMI, lean mass/fat mass ratio, and body fat percentage over the control group (13).
These four ingredients in Revel® Morning Ignition will help jump start your daily routine and get you ready to burn off that excess weight.
