Performix sst review (update may 2018) 16 things you need to know wd gaster

The word “anhydrous” simply means something that does not contain water. So, caffeine anhydrous would be caffeine without water. The idea is that caffeine anhydrous might be more potent because it isn’t “watered down.” However, studies indicate that caffeine anhydrous is no more effective than the caffeine found in a cup of coffee.

In one study conducted at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, researchers tested the effects of caffeine anhydrous, coffee, and a placebo on strength and sprint endurance. They concluded that neither coffee nor caffeine anhydrous had any more effect on strength than the placebo did. They also noted that there was “no clear difference” between coffee and caffeine anhydrous on endurance. [4]

So, it appears that the use of caffeine as an ingredient does support the claim that Performix SST can, under the right circumstances, help with focus and energy. However, the scientific evidence suggests that caffeine anhydrous is no more effective than just drinking a cup of coffee. Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha is a plant that we find in India, Africa, and the Middle East. Its name is a combination of two Sanskrit words: “ashva,” which means horse, and “gandha,” which means smell. It is so named because of the uniquely horse-like smell of its roots. [7]

Aside from the fact that there isn’t sufficient scientific evidence to back this ingredient, we have another concern. We’re not sure what the makers of Performix SST intend for the ingredient to do. It’s used for many things, primarily relieving stress, but none of its uses have anything to do with mental alertness, energy, or fat-burning. [9] Bitter Orange

The research surrounding bitter orange’s effectiveness for weight loss is conflicting. According to WebMD, some research suggests that using bitter orange along with caffeine and St. John’s wort might be useful in reducing weight. But, other researchers say that it has no effect. [10] Synephrine HCL

Huperzine A comes from a plant called Chinese club moss. Creating huperzine A requires a great deal of laboratory work. The result is a purified substance that many argue should be considered a drug, not a supplement, and regulated as such. Huperzine A stops the breakdown of acetylcholine, which is a neurotransmitter. [13] [14]

Although some people use huperzine A to improve energy and alertness, there is insufficient evidence that it is useful for either. However, there is some emerging evidence that huperzine A may be useful in treating Alzheimer’s disease. Because of its ability to prevent acetylcholine from breaking down, it may increase the level of neurotransmitters in the brain, thereby protecting nerves and improving memory.

Yohimbine comes from the Yohimbe tree, an evergreen that grows in parts of Africa. We make medicines and supplements from its bark. Although many supplements use yohimbine, the correct amount of the substance is often inaccurate in the labelling. Performix SST does not specify the amount of yohimbine HCL. [16] [17]

The evidence surrounding yohimbine for weight loss is inconclusive. In one study involving soccer players, researchers found that yohimbine supplementation did aid in fat loss. And, in a review of several supplements for weight loss, including yohimbine, researchers found “encouraging data but no evidence beyond a reasonable doubt” as to its efficacy. [18] [19] Mucuna Pruriens

Mucuna pruriens is a type of legume that grows in tropical regions. We also know it as cowhage and velvet bean. Many people use it as a supplement for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease because it is a source of levodopa or L-DOPA. It allegedly increases dopamine levels in the brain. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter. However, the body breaks down the majority of the L-DOPA in mucuna pruriens before it even reaches the brain, so it isn’t likely to be very effective. [20] [21]

Piper nigrum is the scientific name for black pepper. People often use it with supplements to improve the absorption of certain substances. It helps with absorption by blocking enzymes that interfere with some molecules. Therefore, the addition of this ingredient might help the body to absorb other ingredients but appears to have no benefit on its own. [24]
