Bitter Orange

Bitter orange as an appetite suppressant to aid fat loss...

As a thermogenic agent, Bitter Orange extract helps the body to use fat stores and carbohydrates to fuel the body, thereby reducing fat storage on waist, hips & thighs.

What is Bitter Orange and how does it work?

Extracts from the bitter orange have been used for centuries in China for a variety of ailments. This extract was combined with many other popular herbs to treat low-energy, nasal and sinus problems, as well as many gastric ailments.

Recently it was discovered that in certain stages of maturity, bitter orange contains a rare composition of five adrenergic amines: Synephrine, N-methyl tyramine, hordenine, octopamine and tyramine. All of these amines have demonstrated powerful thermogenic activity.

Today bitter orange extract is used for its incredible appetite suppressant effect, which can satisfy your appetite for extended periods of time. Instead of making your body think it is not hungry, many people feel a sense of fullness that lasts for many hours.

As a thermogenic agent, bitter orange extract helps the body utilise fat stores and carbohydrates to fuel the body. In this way, bitter orange helps the body to reduce inches in fat storage regions (waist, hips and thighs), whilst providing the body with more accessible energy resources. These stunning effects are coupled with synephrine's natural energy-stabilizing action that provides long-term vitality.

Reports indicate that many people felt alert and energetic throughout the entire day after taking bitter orange extract in the morning. This effect does not have any of the highs and lows that are synonymous with many retail energy-boost products.

The benefits of bitter orange are that it has up to 4 times more synephrine than most other products, and is a unique formula that contains the entire synergistic amine composition from a natural source.

When should you not take Bitter Orange?


  • You have heart disease or high blood pressure
  • You are taking any prescription monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI)
  • You are pregnant or lactating
