What are thermogenics and how can they help you?

Whether you want to lose weight, build muscle or something in between, there are lots of different ways to reach your goals. One more recent addition to many people’s health regime is thermogenics, found in certain foods and supplements. Thermogenics can increase body heat, which in turn raises the metabolism and boosts the amount of fat the body burns on a daily basis. This can improve your energy and help you lose weight.

The following are some of the most common ingredients found in thermogenics:

Bitter Orange

This is an ingredient containing octopamine and phenylephrine. These are known for suppressing the appetite and can be found in many thermogenics supplements. It is often used alongside the following ingredients to accelerate calorie burning.

Green Tea Extract

The benefits of green tea are well known around the world. When it comes to fat burning, it is a compound in the tea, called EGCG, which can stimulate this, along with its high content of both catechin-polyphenols and caffeine, which are known for improving energy levels.


Often found in energy drinks, guarana has a lot of surprising health benefits for those looking to burn fat. Guarana is known to improve lipid migration to better convert fat into energy and suppress the appetite. It can also temporarily increase the body temperature and metabolism through the activation of the body’s receptor pathways, which increases fat burning and energy.

Some other commonly used ingredients include hydroxycitric acid, which is found in certain berries and choline, a B Vitamin. Body Science, Jetts’ supplement partner, have a number of thermogenics products, including their Hydroxyburn Pro Balls. Ask a Jetts team member to find out more about thermogenics and thermogenic supplements.
