REVIEW: Fighters Core Fat Burner. What’s the hardest stage of bodybuilding? Most of us would argue that it’s the fat loss stage. Low calories, fatigued training and losing muscle that you’ve spent weeks, if not months building. Well, what if there was a supplement that could finally make this phase a little easier from now on…
PFX Labs have released Fighters Core, a brand new supplement aimed at burning fat whilst also retaining muscle mass, a bodybuilder’s dream.
This brand new supplement has hit the market, made in FDA approved facilities with 8 natural ingredients that cause no unwanted side effects. Fighters Core comes in a capsule and is sold as a 30 day shred, perfect for bodybuilders and physique competitors looking to get rid of unwanted fat.
But what exactly are the ingredients in Fighters Core that get you the results you want?
Fighters Core has been designed to do two simple things, burn fat and retain muscle. The ingredients listed do so by:
- Regulating blood sugar levels
- Reducing cravings and appetite
- Utilising fatty acids as fuel
- Promoting improved protein synthesis
Here is a full breakdown of the key ingredients in Fighters Core:
- Chromium Picolinate 12.5% yielding 150mcg
- Coleus Forskohlii Extract 10%
- Calcium HMB
- Green Tea 98% Polyphenols
- Balck Pepper Extract 95% piperine/bioperine
- Caffeine Anhydrous
Fat burning ingredients in Fighters Core:
Scientists discovered in an 8 week study that chromium picolinate reduced food intake and cravings in the participants. It is believed to do so by improving the way the body uses insulin, a hormone that regulates blood sugar levels.
If your blood sugar levels are not balanced appropriately and keep spiking, this can lead to fatigue, lack of concentration, excess fat storage and sugar cravings. This is everything you don’t want when you’re going through a fat loss phase.
Coleus Forskohlii Extract
Like the rest of the ingredients in this supplement, Coleus Forskohlii is completely natural and comes from the root of the Plectranthus Barbatus Plant. This extract creates lipase enzymes in the body that free fatty acids from the body’s cells. From here, they can then be used as a source of fuel. This is one way that levels of fat may be reduced in the body.
Capsimax Cayenne Pepper
Another key element to the fat loss element of the supplement is Capsimax. This contains capsaicin, a chemical that is often found in different variations of pepper and has possible thermogenic properties. If a chemical is thermogenic, it means it has the capability to potentially boost the metabolism which is why you often see this as a key ingredient in most fat burning supplements.
In a 2003 study, a group of participants ate a chilli with capsaicin in, as a result, their metabolic rate was raised for the 30 minutes after eating.
Muscle maintenance ingredients in Fighters Core:
The main thing you want to avoid during a fat loss phase is losing too much muscle mass, which is easy when you’re eating less calories. Early research has shown that the consumption of HMB before and after a training session has the possibility to prevent muscle damage. This means that there is less chance of over fatigue in the muscles and potential injury.
Calcium HMB is a naturally occurring chemical in the body and is produced when the body breaks down leucine. From here, HMB helps to preserve muscle mass and increase protein synthesis.
Performance improving ingredients:
Green Tea and Caffeine
Green tea is an active ingredient in many supplements as it has the ability to boost metabolism, an essential trait for any fat loss supplement. On top of this, research has shown that green tea has the ability to improve insulin sensitivity and reduce blood sugar levels, which will help to reduce unwanted cravings.
Furthermore, the caffeine element of Fighters Core will help to fight fatigue and keep you alert during your training sessions. This means no more sloppy sessions during your fat loss phase and you can continue to improve your performance.
Caffeine mobilises fatty acids and uses them for energy, similarly to how we use carbohydrates for energy. Therefore, by utilising fat as energy, you’ll have more left in the tank for an intense workout.
Theacrine is another element of the supplement that can be used to enhance your strength and sports performance. It is a naturally occurring chemical, similar to caffeine that will raise your energy levels in preparation for a workout.
It is mainly used to reduce fatigue, improve memory and improve cognitive function, which will allow you to stay focused during a training session. High doses of theacrine stimulate the central nervous system, and currently there has been no proof that it affects blood pressure.
