EPHALEAN - The Appliance of Science to Fat Stripping

EPHALEAN EXTREME FAT SHREDDER is not for everyone. It is a MAXIMUM POTENCY formulation designed specifically for people who have struggled with traditional diets and exercise. In fact much of the research suggest that it can act as some form of TURBO BOOSTER allowing you to burn substantially more calories whilst exercising. It has been formulated for people who have stubborn weight, excess pounds and inches that wont shift no matter how hard you seem to try. If you are committed to the task of losing weight and traditional diets and exercise are not working then order EPHALEAN now.

*** WARNING*** this is not a OTC “diet pill” it contains maximum potency, maximum impact ingredients. It should only be used by Adults 21 and over who have 20 or more pounds of excess weight that they need to lose. If you only want to lose a few pounds to “tone up” then this is not for you.


60 x Enhanced Potency Capsules per pack. Take 2 capsules every morning before breakfast with water. If you are working out as a part of your weight loss program then to burn more calories during exercise consider taking (on training days) as follows – 1 capsule with breakfast and another 1 x Ephalean 45 minutes before working out.

What does Scientific Research say about the key ingredients in Ephalean?

One of the main ingredients in Extreme Ephalean is capsicum extract, containing capsaicinoids. Capsaicinoids are found in a number of natural plants but the most effective is from the chilli pepper, known as capsaicin. Extreme Ephalean uses a high quality maximum impact concentrated form of this in order to achieve maximum benefits. Capsicum an ingredient most commonly found in peppers. According to a study published in a 2006 issue of “Bioscience, Biotechnology and Biochemistry.” these peppers may help you reduce body weight and overall fat levels. Scientists found that consuming sweet red peppers regularly over the course of two weeks led to reduced body weight and less body fat accumulation.

Research scientists over the years have found a number of important benefits to the human body when taking capsaicinoids: According to TV 's Dr. Oz, taking a capsicum supplement before exercising is one of the newest ways to boost your metabolism and induce your body to burn more calories during exercise than just by exercise alone. He states that studies have shown that capsicum increases fat oxidation (burning) by 42 percent during exercise. He went on to say capsicum stimulates metabolism by activating a chain of events in the body that help to melt fat and break it down in the body. It activates the sympathetic nervous system that is associated with thermogenesis, which speeds the body’s oxidation of fat. Fat oxidation is the process by which the body melts excess fat and converts it into energy. Capsicum has also been shown in some trials to also decrease appetite, improve circulation and have some antioxidant effects. This is one reason for taking Ephalean before you work out as, taken this way,it actually helps you to burn up to 42% more calories more when working out!

The NHS website references a study in 2011 in the Journal of Physiology & Behavior. This showed that participants consuming 1000mg of capsaicin (there is 1600mg in a 2 capsule dose of Ephalean) showed significantly increased calorie burning and controlled cravings for “unhealthy” (fatty/salty/sweet)foods.

The Daily Mail 27/4/2011 also referenced this study saying that it “can help manage appetite and burn more calories”.

Other newspapers have also reported on the benefits of this ingredient. The Sun 7/7/2012 said “They burn fat, suppress hunger pangs — and boost overall calorie-burning rates.” They quote respected Food Scientist Dr Stephen Whiting from Manchester Metropolitan University who said that “....taken consistently for a good period of time, it will help you lose weight.”

Ephalean is not designed to be a basic diet pill and nor is it some form of magic pill that will do everything for you. It is the “Appliance of Science to Fat Stripping”. Each Pro Series Maximum Impact Ephalean capsule contains the highest quality - Anhydrous Caffeine 120mg, Capsicum 800mg (Capsicum Annuum) (100mg of 8:1 extract), Acetyl-L-Carnitine 50mg, Green Tea Extract 500mg (Camellia Sinensis leaves standardised to contain 95% Polyphenols 50mg of 10:1 extract), Niacin 20mg (125% NRV), Black Pepper Extract - Piper Nigrum (fruit) 5mg, Chromium 100mcg (250% NRV). Other Microcrystalline Cellulose , Silica, Magnesium Stearate, Gelatin Capsule. This product is designed for use by people looking to get into the best shape that they can be. It works best when used as a part of a total diet and exercise program and as you will see below it actually can help to TURBO BOOST the results attained through diet and exercise.

A 2014 issue of “Appetite” included a study in which scientists investigated the ability of capsaicin compounds, capsaicinoids, to regulate calorie consumption. Researchers found that taking 2.5 milligrams of capsaicinoids reduced the overall number of calories consumed in a meal.

A 2013 publication of “PLoS One” included a study in which participants consumed 2.6 milligrams of capsaicin once every 36 hours over a period of 144 hours. Researchers found that consuming capsaicin led to higher fat oxidation after meals and counteracted the slowdown in metabolism that usually occurs on a calorie-restricted diet. The capsaicin supplement also did not have any negative effects on blood pressure, and while the study showed great promise for capsaicin as a metabolism booster and fat burner.

In 2011 the University of Oklahoma studied what they called the tri-pepper blend, which contains black pepper, caffeine and a concentrated form of capsaicin (similar to Ephalean) and concluded that taking it allowed you " to burn as many calories as a 20-minute walk", according to Joel T. Cramer, assistant professor of exercise physiology. At the University of Oklahoma subjects took the key ingredients in Ephalean or a placebo before exercising. Researchers then monitored the amount of energy they expended and their oxygen consumption and heart rate 60 minutes before they began exercising, during a 60-minute exercise period that consisted of walking on a treadmill and then 50 minutes after exercising. The study found that subjects burnt three times more calories before exercise, three percent more calories during exercise and 12 times more calories up to one hour after exercising – amounting to an extra 278 calories in total when compared with people taking the placebo. In addition a 2009 study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that capsicum supplementation caused significant abdominal fat loss and increased fat oxidation.

EPHALEAN also contains Green Tea. Most of the most popular fat burning supplements on the market contain Green Tea as one of their key ingredients – why? COZITWORKS. There are hundreds of studies showing the effectiveness of Green Tea. In one study (see below) men who took green tea extract and exercised burned 17% more fat than men who didn’t get the supplement. This study suggests that green tea can boost the fat burning effects of exercise. Another study that went on for 8 weeks showed that green tea increased fat burning, both during exercise and during rest. There are several studies that agree with this. Green tea selectively boosts the burning of fat, which may lead to reduced body fat in the long term. In one study of 60 obese individuals, the group taking green tea extract lost 7.3 lbs (3.3 kg) and burned 183 more calories per day after 3 months. Green Tea when blended with other proven fat burning ingredients in Ephalean such as L-Carnitine and Anyhydrous Caffeine means that stored body fat is attacked in a multi directional manner.

This multi directional approach is further enhanced by using high quality black pepper extract. One recent study which has been published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry may have found a link between black pepper and weight loss, with the suggestion being that the piperine found in black pepper extract helps to block fat cell formation . The study identified that piperine, the pungent element of the spice, could help fight obesity by blocking the creation of fat cells, which are also known as adipocytes. They took a closer look at the underlying mechanisms of black pepper extract and piperine in terms of the fat fighting effect that they have, and they found that there was a strong case of inhibition of the fat cell differentiation of the 3T3-L1 cell. Research into the active component of black pepper, piperine, found that it increases bioavailability – the proportion of a substance that is released into the body’s circulation. The inclusion of piperine in Extreme Ephalean helps boost the effect of the other ingredients, making them easier for your body to process and use.

EPHALEAN is designed specifically for use by people who are over weight who are looking for sometime to “TURBO BOOST” the results of their weight loss program. As with all things it will not work in isolation but when taken alongside the correct diet (we particularly recommend THE PRIMAL BLUEPRINT) and exercise (particularly something that is high intensity) the results can be simply amazing.
