KickSpeed Energy 60 capsules - guarana, caffeine, taurine and vitamins | Best Body
Best Body Nutrition's Kick Speed Energy for the ultimate kick.
Each capsule provides a mix of guarana, caffeine, and taurine extract.
Caffeine is the main active ingredient, for example, in coffee. However, it also occurs in more than 60 plants such as coffee trees, tea bushes or kola nut.
Guarana extract is made from the red fruits of the South American vine plant. They contain 4 - 8 % of caffeine. The special thing about it is that the caffeine in guarana is bound to tannins. So the caffeine has a time released effect.
Taurine is an amino sulfonic acids. It is the degradation product of the amino acids cysteine and methionine. The human body can produce taurine itself. In addition, the body get it through food. Especially meat, fish and milk products contain taurine. In the body, taurine is in many tissue types. There it demonstrably fulfils a variety of processes. As a component of the bile acids, taurine is involved in the digestion of fat. Also in the development of the central nervous system and the heart taurine has a part. Taurine can cross the blood-brain barrier, it influence also the signal transmission in the brain cells. Partly this is done by a purely physical effect and by pharmacologically-receptor mediated effect.
The added vitamins B6 and in Kick Speed provide the extra kick. Vitamins are essential nutrients. The body cannot develop them by itself, meaning they have to supplied through food or supplements. For example vitamin B6 and, B12 contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and contribute to a normal energy metabolism and immune system.

Forget about exercising to lose weight: you can't outrun a bad diet!
Set point and holiday weight gain
Leptin, leptin resistance and SIRT1
After demand for resveratrol and pterostilbene went up considerably, due to a remark on tv by a doctor about its' effect on leptin and cardiovascular function, we got a lot of requests to explain how leptin works.
Currently, a major topic in the field of obesity research is the link between obesity and the hormone leptin. Some evidence suggests that obese-prone individuals don’t respond to increasing leptin levels in the same way that non-obese-prone individuals do, which is the reason obesity is now being associated with possible “leptin resistance.” Scientists first discovered leptin in 1994, after years of research focused on hormones that affect body weight and calorie intake. While initially researchers believed the discovery could be used to create powerful weight loss supplements, this has never happened.
How does leptin function in the body and where does the hormone come from? Leptin interacts with areas of the brain that control hunger and eating behavior. The nickname “the starvation hormone” has been given to leptin because levels tend to plummet when someone restricts their calorie intake too much, exercises more and loses body fat. These are all factors involved in what’s called “starvation mode.”
Meanwhile, ghrelin is called a “hunger hormone” that increases your desire to eat.
At your ideal “set point weight,” fat cells produce a given amount of leptin, which maintains the internal energy balance needed for necessary cellular function and proper weight management. In most healthy adults, changes in body weight will trigger changes in leptin, causing appetite to either increase when body fat falls or decrease when body fat rises — although in some susceptible individuals this energy-balance system seems to malfunction.
There’s still a lot to learn about how leptin resistance or decreased sensitivity to leptin’s signals develops, and what can be done to prevent or reverse it. Many experts believe that eating a highly processed diet — especially while also leading a stressful and mostly sedentary lifestyle — is the perfect storm for developing leptin resistance.
Even if someone is genetically susceptible to weight gain or obesity, there’s still a lot they can do to help prevent this from happening, especially eating a nutrient-dense diet, getting enough exercise and taking steps to manage stress.
Exercise or diet, what's better for weight loss?Especially in January, we are asked whether it is better to lose weight by exercise or by diet.
The response I mostly give is that diet is the more efficient method but makes you grumpy and if you overdo it, will lose muscle, while exercise can make you happy, fit and strong.
A few years ago the discovery how in general, exercise doesn't make you lose weight made headlines.
In my former life as a long-distance cyclist I'd have shaken my head in disbelief.. after all, every single spring, fat would almost literally melt away once the cycling season started.
Anyhow, as counterintuitive as it seems to mile-eating cardio-junkies, exercising more is not the best solution to weight loss mostly because the weight piles on off-season.
True enough , once the season was over, the fat would pile on equally fast. Why?
Quite simply, unlike many of my cycling buddies who were also passionate about (marathon) skating, I didn't practice any other sport. Some others refused to skate indoor and only wanted to skate on natural ice, which has become a rarity in the the past 30 years!
Of course I knew exercise burns calories, but somehow it is very difficult to adjust to diet upwards or downwards as appetite lags behind so much!
