Caffeine Anhydrous is another natural substance derived from various seeds and leaves of plants. Caffeine’s most popular effect is its ability to increase alertness, helping us keep focused during the day. But there is more than that!
What is the relation between caffeine and weight loss?
Caffeine speeds up our metabolism making our body burn more calories than usual, and it also facilitates the body’s fat-burning processes for weight loss. In addition, it has also been shown to boost our energy levels hence supporting us to a more effective workout, by helping us to move faster, lift more or last longer to build more muscle.
The Caffeine boost in Burniva supplements can also be really helpful on days when you need to focus but are feeling low in energy due to lack of sleep, or as a result of the stresses and strains of daily life.
So, is the relation between caffeine and weight loss real? Let’s discover it in this article.
Burniva tablets were carefully calibrated to contain a specific dose of Caffeine Anhydrous, effective in bringing about such benefits.
What is Caffeine?
Caffeine is a natural substance derived mainly from the seeds, leaves and fruits of various plants. The kola nut, cacao bean, and guarana berry are a few sources of caffeine. It, in the form of coffee or tea, makes it the most widely used psychoactive drug in the world. In the GM Diet, you can use it freely in the form of black coffee as long as you do not add cream or sugar.
Caffeine anhydrous, the type found in Burniva Supplements is produced from the dehydrated leaves and seeds of these same plants. In fact, ‘anhydrous’ means without water. This dehydration process produces a more concentrated caffeine powder, making it more potent. It can help you to lose weight if you follow a good diet plan.
What are the Benefits of Caffeine in Weight Loss
Caffeine elicits multiple mechanisms of actions in our body. For a complete list of the benefits check this recent review published in 2017.
Below we compiled an accurate list of such benefits, especially in relation to alertness and weight loss.
1. Increased Alertness After Caffeine Intake
Increased alertness is probably the most popular benefit of caffeine since we all experience the kick after coffee first thing in the morning.
Caffeine, a purine methylxanthine alkaloid, is structurally similar to adenosine. Because of this similarity, several researchers believe that caffeine can bind to adenosine receptors. As a result, the receptors are unable to detect adenosine, and this, in turn, stimulates the pituitary gland to release adrenaline, and indirectly the release of dopamine as well.
These chemical processes bring about an effect on mental performance, making you feel more alert, focused and improving your ability to concentrate (read more in this study), whilst reducing feelings of drowsiness. In line with this, in yet another study it was discovered that caffeine can reduce feelings of mental fatigue. Read more about this study here.
The caffeine boost of Burniva can be really helpful on days when you’re feeling low in energy due to lack of sleep, or just as a result of daily life stresses and strain, pushing you to get through the day.
2. How Caffeine Burns Fats Whilst Improving Exercise Performance & Endurance
But there is more to caffeine and weight loss than that. Besides its impact on the central nervous system, caffeine has also been found to influence substrate utilization (the source used as energy, ex. carbohydrates or fats) during training help in fat loss. The claim that caffeine acts as an ‘ergogenic aid’ has been well-founded, as discussed. In simpler terms, an ‘ergogenic aid’ is a substance that improves your exercise performance and enhances endurance. And so it helps in fat loss
This is achieved through several mechanisms of actions, already mentioned above: ‘lipolysis’, ‘fat oxidation’, and a reduction in muscle glycogen breakdown, are very well documented ones (read more here and here). Following is a brief explanation of how this works.
In general, during exercise, our body first utilizes the glycogen (carbohydrate) stores and then moves on to start breaking down fat for more energy. Once the muscle glycogen gets used up however, the feeling of exhaustion kicks in. After a significant dose of caffeine intake, a delay in glycogen depletion has been noticed. This in turn delays feelings of exhaustion, hence making you go on for longer. Instead of using glycogen (carbohydrates) for energy, the body is stimulated to use fatty acids from stubborn body fat deposits instead! ‘Lipolysis’ and ‘fat oxidation’ involve a cascade of chemical reactions that eventually produce energy by breaking down this stored fat, hence the fat-burning properties of caffeine. This is essentially what improves your workout performance and what makes you work out for longer and so lose weight.
A 2015 study by the University of Alcalá in Spain observed a team of volleyball players after they had consumed caffeine, and concluded that their accuracy of shots across the net, their reactions and their overall physical performance was significantly higher than without caffeine.
This is how the caffeine in Burniva Supplements will improve the quality of your workout performance by supporting you to a more intensive and longer workout. Subsequently, Burniva will help you burn more calories since it pushes you to move faster, lift more, or last longer during your workout. In turn, a greater amount of lean muscle in your body will help you to burn more calories day after day.
3. Caffeine’s Involvement In Appetite Suppression
Caffeine is also believed to help suppress appetite or prolong feelings of satiety in order to lose weight. However as discussed in this review, a few studies seem to have failed to report a relationship, and more studies are required to confirm this causation.
4. Caffeine’s Effect On Thermogenesis & Metabolism
That is not all! Caffeine has also been found to potentiate a thermogenic effect as shown in this study, which in turn burns more calories and so make you lose weight. Thermogenesis is the process of generating heat in our bodies. Calories are used up in this heat production process – the more heat or energy produced, the more calories are used up. The process whereby caffeine increases thermogenesis is still unknown, however.
The relation between caffeine and weight loss is clear. In relation to this, numerous studies, have confirmed that caffeine has an effect on the resting metabolic rate, whereby it speeds up your metabolism, thus making you burn more calories during the day. This is another way how Burniva succeeds at increasing your energy expenditure, hence making sure the body uses more calories over time.
How Much & What Type Of Caffeine For Best Results?
In order to get such benefits, one needs to take a higher dose than what can be achieved from a normal cup of coffee or other caffeinated beverages.
In a review analysis regarding necessary caffeine dose to bring about such effects, it was concluded that 3 to 6mg per kilogram of body weight was enough. It is also interesting to note that in this review it was stated that higher doses of 9mg and above, per kilogram of body weight, will not increase performance further, so there is no benefit in taking more caffeine than the stated dose. One single Burniva tablet contains 200mg of caffeine anhydrous, hence if taken as instructed, one tablet in the morning and one mid-afternoon, this will make up a dose of 400mg, making it an effective daily dose to bring about the above-mentioned caffeine and weight loss benefits. In fact in this scientific opinion paper by the European Food Safety Opinion it was concluded that 400mg of caffeine “do not raise safety concerns for adults in the general population, except pregnant women.”
Moreover, with regards the type of caffeine used, this same review confirmed that the anhydrous state of caffeine, just like the one used in Burniva Supplements, is more effective than normal coffee or any other caffeinated beverages.
Again, before you stock up on coffee granules, be mindful it is a fairly powerful substance; it’s important to regulate the amount that you take. Coffee beans, granules and filter coffee powders come in many strengths and what one brand calls medium may be strong to the other. If you’d ever had a few too many black coffees you’ll know why it’s good to regulate your caffeine intake given its effect on blood pressure and heart rate. Hence getting it from a supplement and knowing exactly how much you are taking, is much more sensible than taking a gamble on granules.
