Straight talk about new 8-hour power Xenadrine®-NRG
Generating a groundbreaking buzz from the day it was introduced, new 8-Hour Power Xenadrine[R]–NRG[TM] was a huge hit at this year’s Arnold Classic. Now, it’s quickly gaining a legion of followers as more and more people in the health and fitness world are calling it the true “next generation of thermogenic supplements.” In a roundtable discussion, the leading research and development team that helped launch the NRG phenomenon and usher in a bold, new era in all-natural energy and fat burning support, explains what makes new Xenadrine-NRG so extraordinary and why it’s “a must” for today’s fitness regimens as well as healthy lifestyles.
Q: HOW WAS XENADRINE-NRG BORN?
Taking a scientific approach to nature, we set out to create the definitive weight loss supplement for a rapidly changing world. Government regulations prohibiting the use of ephedra left a tremendous void in the energy/weight loss category. For years, many people used the herbal ingredient with great success. Then, suddenly, it was taken away. Our R&D team wanted to develop more than an alternative … we wanted to offer something better. In a time and place where ephedra had become “king”, our focus was to erase it from the public’s memory once and for all. With the introduction of new Xenadrine-NRG, we feel we will accomplish this objective.
Q: IS XENADRINE-NRG A WEIGHT LOSS OR ENERGY SUPPLEMENT?
It’s both. We didn’t invent the wheel; we just reinvented it without ephedra. The result is a new “supercharged” Xenadrine that “amps up” energy and fat burning support to a new level. Many people who used ephedra in the past reported “a crash” or dip in energy within one to three hours after taking it. But there’s no such thing with new 8-Hour Power Xenadrine-NRG. It works fast and it lasts. You may start to feel a surge in energy within 30 minutes of taking a dose and then it keeps on working for up to 8 hours. Its innovative, extended-release delivery system can help energy levels soar and stay up, even as it helps to burn fat. Plus, it can help you shed unwanted pounds. The more energy you have, the more you can expend in such activities as exercise, and consequently, the more calories you can burn. Also, people have a tendency to snack when they are tired or their energy levels drop. But with Xenadrine-NRG’s unique extended energy release, you won’t “hit the wall”, so it’s easier to fight cravings and eat less. ([dagger])
Q: WHAT MAKES NRG’s FORMULA SO PROPRIETARY?
The mix is the secret to Xenadrine-NRG’s success. Just like we assembled an all-star team in research, chemistry, nutrition, manufacturing and quality control to bring the product to market, we included a winning combination of natural ingredients in its formula that have been individually shown in published clinical research to have outstanding safety and effectiveness. It’s a classic case of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. All these ingredients, from our patented Norambrolide[TM] (standardized Sclareolide extract) to our Thermoxanthin[TM] blend (green coffee bean extract, green tea and much more) are mixed in just the right proportions to complement each other and deliver maximum benefits. ([dagger]) As separate entities, all work great, but together they’re even better. It took over 18 different combinations before we found the perfect one. Our stringent assays also assure optimum levels of all ingredients. In addition, Xenadrine-NRG is produced under quality control standards that meet or exceed current federal requirements.
Q: HOW DOES NRG’s KEY INGREDIENT, NORAMBROLIDE[TM], COMPARE TO EPHEDRA?
They are totally different with very distinct mechanisms of action and benefits. We call Normabrolide, the “c-AMP Accelerator[TM]”. ([dagger]) It’s our own patented form of Sclareolide, a natural isolate derived from the herb Clary Sage. Sclareolide has been around for years in the cosmetics industry, but our proprietary form is the only food-grade sclareolide on the market and has even received GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) approval by the U.S. government. There are other Clary Sage “wannabes” and rip-offs (Sage dust, etc.) already out there and others will be popping up, but we are the only source of tried-and-true Norambrolide. Don’t be fooled by substitutes. In fact, our company was so impressed with Norambrolide’s far-reaching potential that we purchased stakes in several large Clary Sage farms to ensure a reliable supply in the future.
Q: HOW DOES NORAMBROLIDE WORK?
While new to the dieting and sports nutrition worlds, recent research on human fat cells shows that Norambrolide supports the body’s capacity for turning stored fuel (fat) into energy. This break down of fat is called lipolysis. Norambrolide activates a key intracellular compound–cyclic AMP (cyclic adenosine monophosphate)–which is an integral part of energy metabolism, and can help the body produce more energy. (1) In addition, by activating c-AMP, Norambrolide also may help stimulate the release of stubborn, stored fat from cells to be burned for energy. ([dagger])
Q: WHAT DOES NRG’s THERMOX ANTHIN BLEND ADD TO THE MIX?
Xenadrine-NRG’s proprietary Thermoxanthin[TM] blend incorporates the perfect ratio of herbs, amino acids and vitamins, including green coffee bean extract, green tea, cocoa seed extract, tyrosine, vitamin B12 and other key natural ingredients. Added to Norambrolide, this blend helps to enhance energy metabolism, promoting an ideal environment in the body for the release of free fatty acids (lipolysis) while supporting increased thermogenesis and fat loss. (2,3,4,s,6 ([dagger]) It’s a highly unique and complementary “one-two” punch that really works! In addition, several of the ingredients in the mix have been clinically shown to help support better appetite control and even help limit carbohydrate absorption in the foods you eat. (2,3,7,8,9 ([dagger]))
Q: DOES XENADRINE-NRG REALLY WORK FOR UP TO 8 HOURS?
Xenadrine-NRG’s exclusive power pellets are naturally coated granules of active ingredients. The various natural coatings on these pellets are pH sensitive and help release the granules to different sites in the intestinal tract according to pH levels. Some work fast and others last. As a result, Xenadrine-NRG not only kicks in quickly, it also slowly releases its contents for up to an 8-hour period, helping to provide benefits far longer than other energy and weight loss supplements. ([dagger])
Q: HOW MUCH XENADRUNE-NRG SHOULD A PERSON TAKE?
It really depends on the individual–their body weight, unique physiology and comfort level as well as their fitness goals and personal lifestyle. First and foremost, read the label carefully for recommended dosage, warnings and contraindications. And before starting any diet or exercise program, consult with your doctor. A common dosage range is to take two to four tablets before breakfast or morning exercise. One dose does it all–and generally lasts for up to 8 hours. Xenadrine-NRG can deliver anything from a sense of heightened awareness to a highly alert state. ([dagger]) Dosing really depends on your own sensitivity and, ultimately, what works best for you.
Q: WHY SHOULD YOU TAKE XENADRINE-NRG?
Simply put, it can rock your world. New 8-Hour Power Xenadrine-NRG is the best product there is for attaining higher energy levels and weight loss benefits for longer periods of timed. ([dagger]) Plus, its quality and safety are exceptional. “Supreme confidence” are the operative words when it Comes to describing its advanced formula and ability to help support extended energy and fat burning. Not only does it include a proprietary mix of well-researched, cutting-edge ingredients, it’s brought to you by the makers of Xenadrine[R]-EFX–the world’s leading weight loss supplement–so you know it works. Xenadrine-NRG also offers superior value and convenience. One dose and you’re good to go and keep on going for up to 8 hours! ([dagger])
In addition to its powerful, extended-release thermogenic and lipolytic activity, it can also be an excellent pre-workout pick-me-up. If your head is hanging and body is dragging as you hit the gym, Xenadrine-NRG can really help “amp” you up. It’s a feeling that’s very different than the energy charge normally associated with caffeine. There’s never been anything like Xenadrine-NRG. Honestly. Which is a great reason all by itself to try it.
