Norcodrene Fat Burner Review
Norcodrene is a fat burning supplement produced in the US by PEScience. The company markets a number of additional products and seems to be primarily interested in catering for the needs of bodybuilders and other users who are more athletically inclined than the average person looking for a weight loss aid.
PEScience describe Norcodrene as a stimulant based thermogenic, and other notable attributes include:
- Breakthrough thermogenic
- Energy & mood
- Emerging science
- Amazing feel
What is Norcodrene and what does it Do?
It’s hard to say what PEScience mean when they make their claims about “amazing feel” and “energy & mood”, but thermogenic fat burners that work in the promised manner speed up the metabolism and cause a slight increase in body temperature that tricks the body into burning calories at an increased speed and encourage the body to burn fat to as a source of energy.
Norcodrene is somewhat of an unusual product because most of the ingredients used are quite uncommon. Only three of the ingredients (caffeine, grapefruit extract, and yohimbine) are commonly used as weight loss providers.
Each (225mg) capsule provides:
Caffeine (100mg): A diet pill regular that can boost performance levels, increase the metabolism, and trigger the thermogenic fat burning process. As an added bonus, caffeine also provides appetite suppression. The amount included here is the equivalent to a cup of coffee.
[warning]No inclusion rates are available for any of the other ingredients because they are incorporated into proprietary blends.[/warning]
TGR5a-Infused Matrix (Proprietary Blend):
- CirsiumPlex™ Blend (Cirsium Oligophyllum (whole plant) Extract
- Japanese Thistle (root) Extract)
- Grapefruit (seed) Extract (Nomilean™)
- Selaginella Tamariscina (whole plant) Extract (Standardized for Amentoflavone)
Grapefruit extract is the only ingredient in the blend that has a good reputation as a weight loss provider. The active ingredient, naringin, is believed to be capable of providing a boost to the metabolism and triggering fat burning. It is also known to enhance the powers of caffeine.
Cirsium oligophyllum and Japanese Thistle are both plant based ingredients that have shown fat burning potential in tests conducted on rats, but further study is required—preferably on human volunteers.
Selaginella tamariscina is also a plant derivative. It is a favoured ingredient with Chinese herbalists and has shown potential as a treatment for cancer, but its inclusion here would appear to be pointless because it is not known to assist weight loss in any way.
Thermo Energy Matrix (Proprietary Blend):
- Yohimbe (bark) Extract (Standardized for Alkaloids)(SA2-A™)
- Nelumbo Nucifera (seed) Extract (Standardized for Higenamine)
Nelumbo nucifera is a stimulant that is unlikely to directly influence the weight loss process, but may boost athletic performance.
Yohimbe is reputed to be an aphrodisiac, but it is also a stimulant that offers many other benefits and appears to assist the weight loss process by improving lipolysis.
[info]How to use Norcodrene – One capsule should be taken on an empty stomach 30 to 45 minutes before breakfast is eaten. A second capsule should be consumed 5 to 6 hours later.
If no tolerance issues become apparent within the first couple of days, the morning dose can be increased to two capsules, but the maximum dosage of 3 capsules per day should never be exceeded and a 4-week break from supplementation is required after eight weeks of continuous use.[/info]
Norcodrene Customer Feedback
There are a few nay-sayers, but overall customer feedback suggests a product that works. A few average reviews read:
[plain]”Very good appetite suppressant and fat burner. It does exactly what it says on the tin and it does it fast.”[/plain]
[plain]“I know I’m in the minority when I say the capsules did not work for me, but its true. Perhaps they weren’t a good match for my metabolism. I have no idea, but they did nothing at all for me.“[/plain]
[plain]“These pills give me so much energy I feel like Superman so they really help with my workouts. I’ve also noticed I can pull my belt a few notches tighter these days, so they must be burning some fat as well. Worth every penny as far as I am concerned.”[/plain]
[plain]“Good for energy, good for fat burning, and a good investment for anyone who needs to lose weight.”[/plain]
Side Effects, Health Issues & Supplementary Information
The manufacturers issue quite a lengthy warning that lists a number of users groups that should not use Norcodrene. They also state capsule users should avoid tea, coffee, soda and other sources of caffeine. Such an in-depth list of possible problem areas does not inspire confidence, so all potential users are advised to consult a doctor before commencing supplementation.
Purchasing Options & Considerations
Norcodrene can be purchased from Amazon, and the product is also available via a number of independent retailers, but it may be easier to purchase directly from the PEScience website. A (90 capsule) bottle costs $49.99 and a money back guarantee is offered, but the site fails to elaborate on its duration.
[warning]The bottom line though is that we do not recommend Norcodrene – this is due not necessarily due to the deficiencies of the product but more a case of products it competes against[/warning]
In this category we recommend PhenQ. it has been designed to increase your body’s fat burning ability and also help you suppress your appetite.
PhenQ is a pharmacy grade product but available to buy direct from its own website and without prescription. It is suitable for both men and women.
