Coffee beans are naturally green, but they are usually roasted by the manufacturer before being sold to the consumer which turns them brown.

Coffee beans are naturally loaded with antioxidants and pharmacologically active compounds, two of the most important ones being Caffeine and Chlorogenic Acid.

Most of the chlorogenic acid is removed when coffee is roasted . For this exact reason, regular coffee beans won’t have the same effect even though there are plenty of other good reasons to drink coffee.

Chlorogenic Acid is believed to be the main active ingredient in green coffee beans. This ingredient can reduce body weight, reduce fat absorbed from the diet, reduce fat stored in the liver and improve the function of the fat burning hormone adiponectin. Caffiene, the other main ingredient, has also been shown to boost the metabolism.

L-carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid found mostly in meat and dairy products.

It can be produced by the body as long as you’re also eating enough of two other amino acids that it can’t produce, which are lysine and methionine.

L-carnitine serves several vital functions in the body, mostly related to the production of energy. Therefore, it’s not surprising that most of the L-carnitine in the body is found in the muscles, which have to be able to quickly generate a tremendous amount of energy for movement.

People supplement with L-carnitine to increase their body’s carnitine stores, especially the carnitine levels in their muscles which can produce a number of beneficial effects, including less muscle soreness and better post-workout recovery which is good for people who do regular weight training and exercise.

L-Glutamine is one of the most important nutrients for a healthy digestive tract because of its ability to maintain the integrity of the intestinal wall. This amino acid is the most abundant amino acid in the body and also heals all tissue in the body, especially those irritated tissues in the digestive tract. It is also known as the calming amino acid since it’s very effective at reducing anxiety, as well as sugar and alcohol cravings.

Hydrolysed whey protein is an very pure form of whey protein. Hydrolysed Whey Protein is made through a process known as hydrolysis, where the protein chains are broken down, or “pre-digested”, into smaller segments via treatment with enzymes. This produces much smaller protein particles called peptides which are easily absorbed in the body. This also means that hydrolysed whey protein has a much faster rate of digestion and absorption. Hydrolysed whey protein is therefore often used to improve the recovery and protein synthesis process needed after a workout.
