What is the Thermogenic process? - Thermogenic means "tending to produce heat", and the term is commonly applied to compounds which increase heat through metabolic stimulation. If you want to lose fat then the use of thermogenic agents will increase your basal metabolic rate, thereby increasing your energy expenditure.
This article highlights stimulant free, natural, fat burning agents to help with any diet or exercise program.
What does it mean "non-stimulant" vs stimulant? - Thermogenic compounds raise your body temp to increase your metabolism to burn fat. If it were a stimulant, it would be triggering your nervous system to raise your metabolism to burn fat. Non-stimulants are much safer to consume. A good supplement, coupled with a healthy diet and a safe exercise program can make that extra bit of difference that gets you over the hump in losing those last few pounds of body fat.
Fat-burning supplements (also called thermogenics because they help the body burn more calories) now do more than just burn fat. They:
- Increase energy
- Increase Endurance
- Boost Metabolism
- Improve mood
- Control Cravings
- Increase strength in the gym.
The most common fat-burning supplement is caffeine, as it's a proven calorie and fat burner; and it also reduces hunger, improves mood, and boosts strength levels. Caffeine has a lot going for it, which is why it's found in most fat burners.

Chromium Polynicotinate: in recent studies, chromium polynicotinate has been shown to reduce carbohydrate cravings and regulate appetite with continued use. Chromium Polynicotinate is one of the many appetite suppressing ingredients in THERMO-9. It reduces the portions you crave helping you stay fuller, longer.

L-Carnitine: is an amino acid that is essential in burning fat. It transfers long chain fatty acids and breaks them down to produce energy. L-carnitine not only leaves you feeling more energized, but, helps promote lean muscle and keeps the body from storing fat.

L-Tyrosine: eliminates stress and promotes healthy brain functions as well as promotes mental alertness. It keeps the mind focused and leaves you feeling alert, fresh, and energized without the use of stimulants. The stress relieving properties of L-Tyrosine have been shown to reduce food cravings while under stress.

Through a slight thermogenic bump, green tea promotes a higher rate of calorie utilization, helping you burn fat more efficiently and faster.
Alpha Lipoic Acid: is used to help break down carbohydrates in the body. Breaking down carbohydrates more efficiently means less to be stored as fat in the body. It promotes a more efficient synthesis and utilization of carbohydrates for energy in the body.
Oolong Tea: has been shown to significantly boost metabolism immediately after consumption. The caffeine and anti-oxidants in oolong tea prompt your body to raise its metabolic rate and thus, promotes fat burning process within the body. Oolong tea also contains polyphenols that help block fat-building enzymes, making your body more resistant to storing excess fat.
Cayenne Pepper: has been shown to increase the metabolism and promotes increase calorie burn over a 4 hour time span. Furthermore, cayenne pepper has also been shown to be an effective and safe appetite suppressant.
