Betancourt Nutrition Trim X3 is a weight loss supplement that targets three key ways to lose weight.
The appetite suppressant part of the formula is provided by branded supplement Slendesta a potato derived protein extract, plus Glucomannan a fibre derived from the konjac root. This combination may help you feel fuller and avoid snacking and both ingredients often show up in diet supplements aimed at appetite suppression.
This part of the formula also contains Hoodia extract believed to suppress appetite by affecting the neurotransmitters in the brain. A few years ago, there was a craze for Hoodia supplements but since then, the popularity of this ingredient has waned, mainly because of the lack of clinical evidence.
This is the principle part of the supplement, containing 800mg per serving.
The second part of the formula is for thermogenesis or increasing body temperature in order to burn off calories and fat. This contains branded supplement Capsimax Plus, a product available only to the supplements industry you cannot buy it over the counter yourself. Capsimax Plus is a capsicum extract made from hot chilli peppers and according to product information will support energy production and encourage fat burning by generating heat in the body.
The third part of the formula is the most complex. This is for enhancing energy and contains branded supplement Advantra Z.
There are health concerns to this brand because it contains stimulants including Synephrine and Hordenine. These are known as sympathomimetic agents because they mimic the effects of the flight or fight response in the body by raising energy and stress hormones. This includes increasing heart rate and blood pressure, so come with health risks.
In addition to Advantra Z, this part of the supplement contains ingredients with caffeine including Yerba Mate and Gurana as well as green tea extract.
Yerba Mate and Green Tea may have additional benefits to weight loss beyond the simple stimulant effects of caffeine.
