Now that we know Redcon1 products, we should also know the ingredients used in most of their products. We have tried to get a hand on the ingredients but along with that we also have studies related to the ingredients and why they are used in the Redcon1 products.
- Raspberry Ketones
In one small study according to WebMD, people who took 200mg of Raspberry Ketones combined with 1200 mg of vitamin C daily for 4 weeks resulted in weight loss and body fat.
We all know that caffeine is responsible for giving us that extra boost of energy. According to PubMed.gov states, the consumption of caffeine in moderate amounts, increases energy, increases daily energy expenditure, decreases fatigue, enhances physical performance, enhances cognitive performances, decreases the sense of effort associated with physical activity, enhances motor performance, increases alertness, wakefulness and decreases mental fatigue.
- Amino acids
The human body uses amino acids to make proteins to help the body break down food, repair body tissues, grow and perform many other body functions; this was reported by the University of Maryland Medical center.
- Garcinia Cambogia
The National Institutes of Health reveals that it is concluded that the RCTs suggest that Garcinia extracts can cause short-term weight loss. The magnitude of the effect is small, and the clinical relevance is uncertain.
- Green tea
There are clinical studies which suggest that green tea extract may boost metabolism and help burn out fat. There was another study related to green tea done by the University of Maryland Medical Center which claimed that green tea and caffeine improved weight loss and maintenance in people who were overweight and moderately obese.
- Alpha GPC:
The national institute of health states that Alpha GPC is effective at increasing lower body force production after 6 days of supplementation. To add more it also helps the athletes to enhance the muscle power and speed, A-GPC can be added to their diets by the sports performance coaches.
- L- Arginine
L-Arginine is an α-amino acid when it’s used in pre-workout formulas; it converts into nitric oxide upon metabolism. Products that contain L-Arginine or are based on this ingredient are generally known as “vasoactive.” Nitric oxide serves to promote capillary and pulmonary dilation; this allows the oxygen flow to be faster and more efficient to the muscular tissues which are being used during the training. This oxygen flow results in better muscle contractions and higher production of ATP; it’s created by certain enzymes through a process known as oxidative phosphorylation. L-Arginine is used mostly among the athletes and bodybuilders because of its effectiveness.
Taurine is a ph buffer. During the workout, the skeletal muscles function at their best when the blood is flowing to them within a certain alkalotic ph range. A mitochondrial ph gradient exists across the inner membrane of cells. This fact was demonstrated and proven in 1960’s and 1970’s. Taurine’s role in the maintenance of this buffer is to stabilize it, keeping it safely within the ph range of 7.5 – 8.5. If a cell’s buffering capabilities are too low the gradient can potentially shift. This shift in the gradient ultimately disrupts ATP production in that cell. Thus, Taurine helps in regulating the ph substance and eventually enabling the cells to produce ATP for energy.
