Boost thermogenesis, increase energy and burn fat
MetaboMax Plus is formulated with ingredients that help increase thermogenesis and metabolic fat burn as part of a program that includes healthy diet and exercise. Key ingredients capsicum and green tea extract help to decrease body fat. Bitter orange fruit, yerba mate and guarana stimulate metabolism. These are combined in a synergistic herbal base of ginger and chickweed. This effective blend increases energy and may help boost calorie expenditure.
• Helps promote fat loss.
• Increases metabolism or thermogenesis.
• Helps to curb appetite.
• Boosts energy levels.
What is Thermogenesis"
A lot of people define this as fat burning, which is a pretty apt description. But let’s take it a step further. Thermogenesis is the generation of heat in the mitochondria (the cell’s energy factory) due to an uncoupling of oxidative phosphorylation.
What does this mean? When food is metabolized in your body, a lot of electrons are produced. As these electrons are processed in the mitochondria, the energy liberated is trapped to form ATP—the cell’s energy currency.
Normally electron processing and ATP formation are coupled, and the ATP produced provides needed cellular energy. When uncoupling occurs, very little ATP is formed. Most of the energy is released as heat.
Free fatty acids from fat cells activate uncoupling and the thermogenic mechanism. Lipolysis, or the breakdown of fat, liberates free fatty acids (hence the name fat burning). The fat disappears and a lot of heat is produced.
How It Works
Capsicum and green tea combine to increase thermogenesis and decrease body fat. EGCG from green tea provides antioxidants, and some studies show that green tea may have beneficial effects on already normal-range cholesterol levels.
Bitter orange fruit naturally contains synephrine, an extract of Citrus aurantium, which helps the body use energy properly, stimulates metabolism, helps with the uptake of amino acids into muscle, increases lipolysis (the breakdown of fat) and can exert mild hunger-suppressant effects.
Yerba mate and guarana increase thermogenesis by boosting energy expenditure and metabolism. These two herbs provide natural sources of caffeine (20 mg per capsule) that is utilized by the body.
Ginger has been used traditionally for lypolisis and weight management. Chickweed is an essential ingredient in our popular Fat Grabbers® product.
Guggulipid herb contains guggulsterones, which, according to studies, help maintain cholesterol levels already within the normal range and decrease circulatory fat deposits. Guggulsterones may help reduce fat stores due to their thyroid-stimulating activity.
Nature's Sunshine Products (NSP) Avantage
NSP scientists developed this product for those who desire a powerful weight-management boost. The herbs and other ingredients in this formula were carefully chosen based on their effectiveness.

Working together for a Goal
The following natural components of MetaboMax Plus combine to synergistically affect lipolysis, which gives the free fatty acids that spark thermogenesis.
• Synephrine from bitter orange stimulates the release of noradrenaline (or norepinephrine) that binds to receptors on fat cells, causing lipolysis.
• EGCG, the main catechin from green tea, enhances noradrenaline action because it inhibits an enzyme that normally breaks down noradrenaline. • Natural caffeine from guarana and yerba mate interferes with the breakdown of a key mediator in the lipolytic process.
• The other ingredients act together to cause lipolysis and weight loss.
From this we understand that the free fatty acids from lipolysis stimulate uncoupling. This uncoupling results in thermogenesis. So, fat breaks down, the fatty acids cause uncoupling, and foods are oxidized to give only heat, which is dissipated and not used by the body as an energy source. Remember, this process continues at a fairly fast rate as long as the ATP levels are low. Additional MetaboMax ingredients benefit weight loss by different mechanisms.
• Capsaicin from red pepper decreases appetite through sensory stimulation, as well as binding to the so-called vanilloid receptor. This receptor is important in body temperature regulation.
• Guggulsterones increase the conversion of T4 to the more potent thyroid hormone T3, which is known to stimulate thermogenesis.
• Chickweed interferes with fat absorption from the gastrointestinal tract.
MetaboMax® Plus is formulated with ingredients that help increase thermogenesis and metabolic fat burn as part of a program that includes healthy diet and exercise. The combined thermogenic effect of capsicum and green tea extract help to decrease body fat. Bitter orange fruit, yerba mate, and guarana are complemented with an herbal base of ginger and chickweed; an effective blend that increases energy and calorie expenditure.
