Hey folks. Apparently you have HSL. It’s not “hairy, scratchy legs” either (although mine are that way by Sunday.) HSL stands for ‘Hormone Sensitive Lipase” levels and Nordrenalean HSL allegedly works on yours making them more efficient. You see your HSL levels determine when your body stops processing incoming food for energy, and decides instead to burn stored fat. Seeing as most of us have more fat than an over-stuffed couch, that’s a great thing!
Nordrenalean HSL also cozies up to your underactive thyroid gland and persuades it to kick it up a notch, raising your metabolism and creating thermogenesis (a fancy name for fat burning.) And it does this without affecting lean muscle mass which is usually the first thing to go when you lose weight. Remember muscle-good. Fat-bad.
But can it get the job done? It may have a name that reminds me of Nordic Track, tall, muscular Norsemen and lean hairy legs, but most weight loss supplements are all talk and no trousers; and not a Scandinavian in sight. The ingredients will tell us…
Nordrenalean HSL Ingredients
All ingredients are delivered in a proprietary blend of unknown dosage. Blends are notorious for not delivering the correct quantities of effective ingredients and they’re not regulated by the FDA. I honestly can’t tell you if you’re getting enough here…
- Synephrine–a safer alternative to ephedrine. It raises metabolism and energy levels, and initiates fat burning.
- Guggulsterone–a clinically tested and proven weight loss ingredient that boosts energy and metabolism. It is also well known for its cholesterol lowering qualities.
- Green Tea–another clinically tested and proven ingredient. Green Tea is full of powerful antioxidants that prevent disease and aging, and is high in caffeine which stimulates metabolism and boosts energy.
- Hoodia–an unproven appetite suppressant with fun folklore behind it but no clinical facts.
- Capsicum Annuum–cayenne which is an antioxidant; and may improve metabolism and cause thermogenesis. Clinically unproven.
- Evodiamine–similar to caffeine in its properties.
- Cissus Quadrangularis extract–antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
- White Willow Bark–anti-inflammatory and pain reliever.
- Sulbutiamine–derivative of vitamin B1 that’s been linked to thyroid and libido health and mood enhancement.
- Yohimbe–may stimulate the central nervous system aiding in fat burning and libido.
- Caffeine Anhydrous–caffeine in a dehydrated form
Looking at the list of ingredients I can’t see much that will affect your lipase levels or your thyroid. What I do see is quite a bit of caffeine. Caffeine will give you more energy and temporarily raise metabolism (until you crash) but you can’t rely on it solely for fat burning. Synephrine is a pretty effective ingredient, but are you getting enough? Honestly, I’m not impressed with this formula.
Nordrenalean HSL Side Effects
If you’re getting the correct ingredient dosages I can see lots of potential for side effects from the caffeine in this blend. Caffeine can lead to headaches, jitteriness, irritability and insomnia. But I am not sold on you getting enough of anything potent in Nordrenalean HSL.
Does Nordrenalean HSL Work Well Enough to Buy?
This product is marketed towards body builders and anyone serious about diet and exercise. But it’s just not a serious formula. It’ll turn your pee fluorescent and probably make you feel wired for a few days, but I’m not convinced you’ll see results on the scale. There was also a serious lack of information on Nordrenalean HSL. I had to really scour the internet. If a diet pill is any good, information will practically burst through your screen! This is one of ‘those’–i.e., a product that gives the diet industry a bad name. Sorry Nordrenalean HSL…I guess “hairy, scratchy legs” is more of an apt description after all.
