If you look closely at that device, too many people sit in front of you daily and pay attention to commercials, you will see an increasing amount of fat burner ads at this time of year. Fat burners are the flagship of supplement companies, mega profit generators arrive in New Year. First, supplement simply means “extra” and if a concern for proper nutrition, moderate aerobic exercise and a concern for muscle are not met synergistically, then you can forget the long-term results simply by taking a pill.
Since the main or active ingredient in many fat burners (ephedrine) was removed (not prohibited) from the market, supplement vendors had to find their “natural” replacement; Synephrine that is “natural” and comes from bitter orange or citrus aurantium just as ephedrine comes from ephedra or ma huang herb. Synephrine is found in many over-the-counter nasal sprays, however, natural does not always mean safe. Nicotine is found “naturally” in tobacco and is one of the most addictive drugs (poison actually) in the world. Do I need to say more about the long-term “natural” effects of tobacco on the body? Okay, this is not the best comparison, but just take a look at the warning labels on over-the-counter nasal sprays that contain synephrine and see for yourself. Too bad they don’t put them on the labels of fat burners without ephedrine.
