Synephrine HCL has taken up ephedrine’s space as a popular weight loss supplement after ephedrine was named a banned substance in the United States. Synephrine has many of the same benefits as ephedrine, but without the addictive properties and negative side effects.
Derived from the Citrus aurantium fruit, it is much safer than other supplements on the market. The peel, flower, leaf, as well as the fruit, are all used to produce medicinal remedies. Also known as Bitter orange and Seville orange, its first recorded use was by the early Greeks in the 12th century. It is estimated that over 100 million doses of synephrine have been produced in the United States in the past 30 years. Synephrine is used in many traditional Chinese medicinal remedies. In the east, it goes by the name “Zhi Shi.” Though “Ma Huang” (ephedrine) is not banned in China, many are making the switch as they believe it has better “qi” stimuli. In traditional Chinese medicine, they believe that your qi — the life force or soul of a person — should be at its optimum before healing can begin. It is often prescribed to aid digestion, and help with weight loss and stomach cramps. It is also now used to help with shock, mental wellbeing, and cardiac care.
Unlike its synthetic counterparts, synephrine is a semi-selective sympathomimetic. It targets certain bodily tissues, such as lipids, but avoids others such as heart tissue. Non-selective sympathomimetics, such as pseudoephedrine (a substance found in cold and flu medication, but also used to produce methamphetamine) have little control as to what parts of the body they target. This can lead to a variety of differing side effects, which could be fatal if not monitored correctly. The University of Atlanta has researched how the fruit from the Citrus aurantium plant had no effect on the cholesterol and blood pressure of the subjects of their studies. The members of this study were all sound of health throughout this study. If you suffer from any illness where sympathomimetics may be harmful (such as hypertension) its recommended that you do not take synephrine.
Synephrine is also known to increase the body’s metabolic rate. It helps release the stored lipid cells into the bloodstream, and the metabolism, which is working at a faster rate than usual so it can burn off this stored energy. This creates a loss of fat in the body. It also has the benefit of being able to do so without majorly increasing blood pressure or heart rate. Similar to caffeine, synephrine is a stimulant. It provides an energy boost, can help suppress your appetite, and help you burn more calories even when exercise is not being undertaken. Many who take synephrine combined with caffeine find this gives them the results they are after.
Though synephrine is a natural substance, it should not be taken in high doses. Depending on your age, sex and weight, 2-10 mg per day is sufficient to help promote a healthier lifestyle. As with any supplement regimen you plan to undertake, it is important to seek professional advice before doing so.
