Molecule Monday - 6 Paradol

Happy #moleculemonday! Over the last 2 years, more and more fat burners are including something called Grains of Paradise(Afromomum melegueta). Its from the ginger family and contains quite a few active compounds for increasing energy expenditure. The main compound is 6-paradol. Research shows that 6-paradol works via 2 mechanisms to help burn fat: 1) increases the activity of brown adipose tissue(BAT) and 2) significantly increases calorie burning. BAT contains a protein called UCP-1 which regulates burning calories as heat in order to maintain body warmth. Research also shows that taking 40mg of Grains of Paradise lead to a 400% increase in calories burning vs the placebo in just 30 min. It was also noted that users experienced an average of 6% increase in metabolic rate. It also has been shown to reduce abdominal and visceral fat. The cool thing about 6-paradol is it's not a stimulant, so you don't get the jitters or increased heart rate. It also was shown to increase test levels in rats via increased cholesterol production. 6-paradol can be found in Cobra6 by @blackstonelabs. #musclechem #gym #flexfriday #workout #fatburner #shredded #ripped #preworkout #npc #ifbb #muscle #lift #physique #bodybuilding #powerlifting #swoll #chemistry #science #jacked #strong #testosterone #workout
