iFAS503® is an innovative proprietary supplement that promotes weight loss through a boosted metabolism. It works by inhibiting fatty acid synthase (FAS), an enzyme that is naturally produced in your body that create fatty acids. These fatty acids can either be stored as triacylglycerol in fat cells or used as fuel during any intense workouts or training sessions. Stopping fatty acid synthase can effectively keep your body from storing fat, which can eventually suppress food cravings and encourage weight loss.
The three key ingredients in iFAS503® work in conjunction to create these amazing results. Let’s take a closer look at these ingredients and learn how they can help you control your metabolism and shed those pounds.
Scientifically known as Camellia sinensis, the green tea plant originated in China and has been used for centuries to brew a delicious, calming tea, but it’s more than just a soothing drink on a cold day. Studies have found that green tea extract may be useful for managing your weight by stimulating fat oxidation and encouraging thermogenesis, which is the process of physically heating up your body. Making yourself physiologically hotter forces your metabolism to increase, causing you to burn more calories.
Green tea also contains catechin, a type of water-soluble polyphenol. One of the most prevalent catechins in green tea is called epigallocatechin gallate, or simply EGCG. Research on EGCG has found that it may increase your resting metabolism and stimulate your body’s overall ability to oxidize fat.
Green tea also possesses powerful antioxidant properties that help balance out the oxidation of fat by neutralizing harmful free radicals. Antioxidants can also reduce muscle inflammation to keep soreness down while speeding up your recovery.
Native to central and southern China, tuber fleeceflower, alternately known as Polygonum multiflorum, is a type of flowering plant in the same family as buckwheat. In traditional Chinese medicine, the root of the flower has been used for various rejuvenating purposes, from preventing aging to restoring hair color.
Studies for tuber fleeceflower are still early, but like green tea, tuber fleeceflower is high in antioxidants, particularly superoxide dismutase. This potent antioxidant is specifically good at combatting free radicals, food additives, pollutants and other potential oxidizing substances. Other studies suggest that it may be effective in promoting good cardiovascular health and lowering cholesterol.
Studies also show that tuber fleeceflower is a powerful FAS inhibitor. In rat studies, tuber fleeceflower not only reduced body weight, but also significantly reduced food intake.
Loranthus describes a genus of parasitic plants that grow on the branches of woody trees and belongs to the same family as mistletoe. Studies found that the most effective parasitic loranthus extracts come from the Taxillus chinensis plant, more commonly called mulberry mistletoe. In traditional Chinese medicine, this species of lornathus was used to preserve health and increase the human lifespan.
In iFAS503®, parasitic loranthus extract acts as a powerful fatty acid synthase inhibitor, one of the most potent found yet. By inhibiting fatty acid synthase, parasitic loranthus extract effectively forces your body to use the fat cells it has for energy while suppressing your appetite.
Parasitic loranthus also contains high levels of quercetin. Quercetin is one of the most well researched bioflavonoids. It has antioxidant properties and can prevent the buildup of fatty plaque in the arteries, but quercetin is most interesting because it has a multitude of synergistic interactions with other compounds, especially the catechins in the green tea we mentioned earlier. Studies have found that the combination of quercetin and cetchins significantly increased physical endurance and improved overall athletic performance.
iFAS503® is an effective tool in your weight loss arsenal. You can take it on its own or find it as an ingredient in effective fat burning supplements like Thyrovate.
