SOMALYZE by Species Nutrition
is a non-stimulant based fat burner that, simultaneously, functions as a sleep aid. The following paragraphs describe the unique blend of ingredients in SOMALYZE and the complex mechanisms of how they function to metabolize fat while you sleep.USNIC ACID
Individuals who consume 30-60mg of Usnic acid per day usually notice a slight increase in body temperature. This phenomenon is due to the fact that lost energy escapes from the body as heat. Remember, warmth is a good indicator that the Usnic acid is effectively wasting energy and thus burning fat.PROPIONYL L-CARNITINE:
This is a relatively new version of L-carnitine, that has important effects on skeletal and cardiac muscle. Back in 1990, a human study demonstrated that propionyl-L-carnitine could combat the destructive effects of low oxygen status and muscle fatigue in heart and skeletal muscle. More relevant to our discussion is the fact that propionyl-L-carnitine has a tremendous ability to penetrate skeletal muscle and thus facilitate the transport of long chain fatty acids into the mitochondria.GAMMA AMINOBUTYRIC ACID
GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid) is an amino acid-derived neurotransmitter-- a chemical that transmits messages between nerve cells—that’s found predominantly in the hypothalamus of the brain. This is an important fact since the hypothalamus is located in a region of the brain (posterior lobe) that’s responsible for visceral functions such as sleep cycles, body temperature and the activity of the pituitary gland.MELATONIN
The pineal gland (located in the brain) synthesizes and secretes the hormone, melatonin; a structurally simple hormone that communicates information about environmental lighting to various parts of the body and then establishes specific circadian rhythms that inform the body whether it’s day or night. This light-transducing ability of the pineal gland has led some to call the pineal gland the "third eye".
Normally, in the body, the timing of melatonin secretion is controlled by neural pathways that run from the retina of the eye to the hypothalamus and from the hypothalamus to the pineal gland. Interestingly, it’s the suprachiasmatic nucleus of the hypothalamus that controls bodily circadian cycles such as core body temperature, cortisol secretion, sleepiness, and melatonin secretion.PHOSPHATIDYLCHOLINE (PC) and PHOSPHATIDYLETHANOLAMINE (PE)
Phosphatidylcholine and Phosphatidylethanolamine have been shown to reduce elevations of stress hormones such as ACTH and cortisol that are associated with strenuous exercise. This is an extremely important finding, since age-related increases in the cortisol/DHEA ratio are a significant biomarker of aging. This changing ratio-- increased cortisol and decreased DHEA-- reflects the toxic effects on the body to prolonged increases in cortisol levels (hypercortisolemia). These effects can ultimately manifest as the “Cushingoid” appearance (bloated face, fat stomach, and soft look) of many people over the age of 50. Consequently, many studies have demonstrated that the cortisol-blocking effects of phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine may profoundly delay these adverse effects of aging.
Remember, whenever we exercise, the trauma of the workout creates stress in the body. In response, the adrenal glands release tons of the stress hormone, cortisol. Cortisol is a catabolic hormone that breaks down muscle, suppresses the immune system and precipitates the storage of ugly abdominal fat. Phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine can blunt this cortisol releasing effect to exercise and thus greatly enhance the body’s ability to repair itself and to suppress the accumulation of annoying body fat.Supplement Facts
