What You Should Know
AmphetaLEAN by Beast Sports is a fat burning, appetite controlling weight, loss supplement that uses enteric coated capsules to release the formula in a two stage delivery process. Beast Sports presents a decent argument against other energy supplements in the weight loss industry: their effects only last for no more than one to three hours because they are absorbed through the stomach. All the ingredients of these products are sent to the bloodstream at the same time, which accounts for their effects being short-lived. AmphetaLEAN tablets are coated with a protective shell that allows its self a safe passageway into the intestine, where the formula can be absorbed over a long period of time. The AmphetaLEAN tablet is a capsule within a capsule, which they refer to as Liqui-Tab technology.
List of Ingredients
Synephrine, Adenosine, Niacin, Yohimbe, Vinpocetine, and Bioperine.
Synephrine, a popular alternative to the now illegal ephedrine, supposedly can burn fat, increase energy levels, increase metabolism, and promote weight loss. The structure of this drug is very similar to ephedrine, so it poses some harm to the body. The Swedish FDA claims it can cause arrhythmia, a group of heart conditions. It is typically used by people with heart problems and requires a prescription. Niacin is also known as vitamin B3 and can be used to turn food into energy. It can cause side effects like itching, skin rashes, and facial flushing. Niacin can cause liver damage if taken daily at 2 grams per dosage and especially if taken in a time-release form. Yohimbe is normally suggested for people that have erectile dysfunction. Despite the lack of experimental evidence showing that it is effective, this drug has a strong demand in the bodybuilding market. The Mayo Clinic suggests this product can be harmful if taken for long periods of time, especially if you suffer from liver, kidney, or heart disease. Vinpocetine is a vasodilator, which means it can widen blood vessels and decrease blood pressure. This chemical has shown no adverse side effects. Bioperine is found in black pepper and supposedly can increase nutrient absorption.
