People have been asking a lot lately about Thin Quik diet pills. I’m loathe to advocate diet pills, but judging from reviews I’ve read and the list of ingredients, they may be effective on some level. However, I’m not sure how it can be legal since, to my understanding, ephedra has been banned in the U.S. The list of ingredients is pretty interesting!
With 30 mg of Ephedra extract and with 300 mg of caffeine, it’s bound to hype you up! Thirty percent of it is Synephrine-which is used as a bronchial dilator and functions to increase the metabolic rate without affecting heart rate or blood pressure. It causes a release of adrenaline and noradrenalin only in the beta-3 receptor sites (mostly adipose tissue and the liver). It does not cross the blood-brain barrier.
Add to that mix, Phenylethylamine which is supposed to function as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system and is supposed to affect your mood, appetite and overall sense of well-being. Phenylethylamine also is purported to have the ability to stimulate your thyroid gland and therefore increase your metabolism. However, I read that it is not effective when taken orally.
Another ingredient is acacia rigidula which is a shrub that contains several different alkaloid groups that provide a source of norepinephrine. Phenylethylamine is the most powerful alkaloid found in the acacia rigidula plant. In other words, it’s another form of the same stuff!
The next ingredient, Evodiamine, is a chemical which is extracted from the Evodia spp family of plants which has been shown to reduce fat uptake in mouse studies.
There are more ingredients, but I think we get the picture here. It appears that just from the ephedra and caffeine, there would be increased energy and some level of hunger suppression.
