Phen Caps are a great weight loss ally because of the effects it has on both appetite and energy. It achieves results that are similar to those from the popular weight loss drug phentermine hydrochloride (phentermine HCl), a controlled substance that can only be obtained through a medical prescription.
Phen Caps contain nine natural active ingredients; here we’ll detail which of those ingredients provide Phen Caps with their incredible energy boosting properties!
Phen Caps: the energy boost you’ll need for your daily activities
Since the purpose of Phen Caps is to assist you on your weight loss journey, one of their most notable traits is providing the energy and focus you need for your recommended exercise routines and other daily activities. The extra energy you get from Phen Caps comes from stimulants, like caffeine, which have been shown to increase energy levels, making exercise and staying fit a lot easier.
Caffeine – peppy jolt to the system
Caffeine is well known for its stimulant effects and studies have shown that it improves mood and cognitive performance. Other studies have shown that caffeine intake improved performance on repetitive tasks, which is great news for those engaging in exercise routines or sets.
When ingested, caffeine molecules attach to the adenosine receptors in the brain and block adenosine from binding. Adenosine is responsible for signaling the brain and body that it’s time to sleep. This means caffeine doesn’t replace the need for sleep, but it helps your body feel awake and energized.
Coffee also gives you more energy because of adenosine’s interaction with dopamine. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter (chemical messenger) that helps control the brain’s reward and pleasure centers. When adenosine is blocked by caffeine, dopamine works more efficiently. Elevated levels of adenosine in the blood cause the release of adrenaline, which adds to the feelings of alertness and energy.
All these symptoms probably sound familiar to us coffee enthusiasts. The interaction of neurotransmitters explains why we feel jittery, alert and even happy after having a couple of cups of coffee! The extra buzz provided by Phen Caps works wonders for your exercise routines because you will feel more motivated to work out and enjoy those activities!
L-Carnitine, the stamina supply train
Phen Caps also include L-Carnitine, an essential amino acid, needed to transport fatty acids to your cells, supply the heart with additional energy, increase stamina, and help muscles recuperate faster after an intense workout. Now you see how all these ingredients come together in perfect synergy? They give you the buzz you need to pursue physical activities while helping your body cope with the strain of exercising! But let’s discuss another important part of the energy boosting properties of Phen Caps: fat burning or fat breakdown.
Phen Caps & fat burning: incinerate body fat for fuel!
Phen Caps help with fat burning by supporting the body’s functions to convert the stored fat into energy. This process is achieved through caffeine and raspberry ketones. Ketones contain adiponectin, a protein used by the body to regulate metabolism, which helps in preventing fatty deposits from forming in blood vessels and has anti-inflammatory properties! L-Carnitine, previously mentioned, also supports the fat break down by boosting metabolism, by binding to long-chain fatty acids and allowing them into the mitochondria for fat burning.
Fat burning 101
So, what’s the deal with fat burning? And what does it have to do with energy?
Fat burning (or lipolysis) is a complex process, biochemically speaking, but here’s a quick summary. The fat cell stores fat in the form of triacylglycerol, which gets ‘liberated’ when the right stimuli enable it. The stored ‘energy’ (the triacylglycerol) is released into the bloodstream to wherever the energy is needed in the body.
When does this happen? When you’re consuming fewer calories than you are burning (aka creating an energy deficit) or when activated by supplements… such as Phen Caps! That’s when fat is turned into the ‘energy’ your body needs to function. This doesn’t mean that you’ll suddenly experience a surge of energy or a dramatic sensation of power; it means that your body will keep functioning by using its ‘spare’ energy, which the body stores as fat (but usually never gets to use, if you’re not following a balanced diet and exercise routine!).
The lowdown on fat breakdown
Phen Caps will help with the fat burning process, but it won’t just magically make you shed pounds just by taking them. You need to remember two things about fat storage and fat breakdown:
First, each calorie counts! You need to start burning more calories than you eat to start losing that unwanted weight. But you need to do so in moderation; don’t go straight for the energy deficit (also known as ‘starvation mode’) because it’s a very short term ‘fix’. You need to get into the proper, sustainable, long-term lifestyle: exercise and healthier nutrition. Low calorie crash diets are a no-no, because you are sure to gain any weight you lose with them once you go back to ‘normal’.
Two, when you start actually losing that weight, remember to keep up the good work. Your fat cells are merely emptied out, but will fill back up quickly if you quit taking care of yourself. Embrace a new lifestyle; don’t think about ‘all the things you will miss, but instead, focus on all the things you’ll gain with a healthier, leaner body!
As you can see, Phen Caps work because they are designed specifically to give you more energy to better enjoy and perform the activities that will make your body burn away unwanted fat and therefore lose that extra weight!
Still, that’s barely half of what Phen Caps do! We haven’t even discussed the appetite suppression properties that will protect you from nasty snacking habits - we’ll cover those in a later article!
