When I first started with Nutrex 2 years ago and saw the Lipo-6 lineup, my exact words were…
Woah… o_O why so many?
So if I was confused… I am sure everyone else is as well so let’s clear this up! 🙂
The first LIPO-6 was first released in 2005 in the classic red and white bottle and contains 120 liquid capsules.
Why was this particular one so popular that it was voted ‘Fat-Loss Support Product of the Year’ in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008?
LIPO-6 STIM FREE
I love the Stim-Free version simply because it has no stimulants! Instead of caffeine, there is L-Carnitine and Chromium Picolinate.
L-Carnitine is one of my holy grails when it comes to sports supplements because it helps convert fat into energy! ^_^
Chromium Picolinate helps control our blood sugar levels. By controlling blood sugar levels, we reduce storing ingested carbohydrates as fats as well as reducing sugar/carbohydrate cravings. Hooray!
This can also be taken in the evening or before bed to induce more calorie burn during your sleep OR to cycle off your current stimulant based Lipo-6 to reduce stimulant build up, but want to still have a fat burning effect during that time off.
LIPO-6X is one sexy fat burner. Why? Because it is a MULTI-PHASE fat burner! What does that mean? It is a fat burner that has multiple release phases both fast and extended.
Phase #1 Rapid Release Liquid Capsule:
The outer liquid capsule is where the capsule starts releasing its appetite suppressing, fat-burning and energy-production ingredients.
Phase #2 Extended-Release Inside Capsule:
The second capsule that sits inside the liquid capsule continues to work over an extended period of time to continue burning fat and more energy!
So taking a look at the label, the main differences in this pill vs the original Lipo-6 & Stim Free is Lipo-6X has more caffeine components and no Guggulsterones.
This concludes the BASIX SERIES:
Lipo-6, Lipo-6 Stim Free, and Lipo-6X.
Up Next: BLACK SERIES
Lipo-6 Black, Lipo-6 Black Hers, Lipo-6 Black Ultra Concentrate, Lipo-6 Black Ultra Concentrate Hers, Lipo-6RX
I like to recommend the BLACK SERIES to those that have taken a fat burner before and want a little more of a kick.
LIPO-6 BLACK HERS
Same as the Lipo-6 Black! Only difference is the added Vitamin D, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12 and Calcium for iron and bone support.
LIPO-6 BLACK ULTRA CONCENTRATE
LIPO-6 BLACK ULTRA CONCENTRATE HERS
Same as Lipo-6 Black Ultra Concentrate + added Folic Acid & Vitamin B12
So to conclude the differences between each Lipo:
Lipo-6: The award winning, first liquid capsule fat burner with thyroid support.
Lipo-6 Stim Free: Similar to Lipo-6 but without the stimulants. Great for those who don’t like stimulants or want a night time fat burner and/or cycling off.
Lipo-6X: Multiphase fat burner.
Lipo-6 Black: For those that want something more advanced than the OG Lipo-6. Can start with one pill and work your way up to 3.
Lipo-6 Black Hers: Same as above with added vitamins for iron and bone support.
Lipo-6 Black Ultra Concentrate: Extreme energy
Lipo-6 Black Ultra Concentrate Hers: Same as above but with added Folic Acid & Vitamin B12.
Lipo-6RX: The newest fully disclosed Lipo-6 with TeaCrine for a sustained energy fat burner.
Which Lipo-6 is for you?
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! I am officially part of Team Nutrex!!! I cannot express how excited I am to be part of such an amazing team. I remember when I first laid my eyes on Larissa Reis, Yarishna Ayala… it was love at first sight <3 (And now we are on the same team **add shocked emoticon face here <3 **) I mean who doesn’t love these sexy ladies! Not only do we have THE BEST athlete team, we have a badass team on the inside as well!!!!!!!!!
If any of you know me, I am a HUGE supplement lover!!! I love dissecting every ingredient not only in supplements, but the food we eat and drink as well. (Read a sample post here). I love learning how certain ingredients benefits us and how it affects our bodies. I seriously can go on and on about supplements, nutrition, training… basically anything related to health and fitness ^_^
If you guys aren’t familiar with Nutrex Research Inc., here is a little history about the company.
What started 10 years ago as a dream and an idea has grown into a remarkable success. Hard work and quality products allowed Nutrex to become a major force in the dietary supplement industry.
With that being said, I would love to share with you guys my favorite products and why. I’ll keep it simple and save the fun scientific talk for a later post/vlog hehe ^_^
Upon waking I take the following:
Chromium is a mineral that helps control blood sugar levels. It helps reduce sugar and carbohydrate cravings and preserve muscle tissue. Pretty neat right?! ^_^ Since our bodies cannot produce chromium on its own, we have to get it through whole foods, such as whole grains, nuts, broccoli, and green beans.
I love Lipo-6 Chromium because I know that if I take this first thing in the AM, I won’t have to stress about my food. It is also clinically dosed so all you need is 1 liquid capsule per day ^_^
Also known as Conjugated Linoleic Acid. CLA is related to the omega-6 fatty acids, one of the two types of essential fatty acids that helps our body increase metabolic rates. It also helps our body convert food more efficiently into energy. YES!!!
More energy = Happiness
CLA is found in dairy and animal fats, such as beef, lamb, whole milk, and eggs, but it cannot be produced by the human body. So just like Lipo-6 Chromium, I like taking this in the AM because it makes me not have to think about what foods I have to eat or the amount I have to intake. It is recommended we take about 3.4 grams of CLA (3,400 mg) daily to receive its benefits. So I take about 3-4 soft gels a day.
I like to call this my happy pill hehe ^_^. It gives me the perfect amount of focus and energy AND control my appetite. Yipee!
Ever feel sluggish after a long day of work and just don’t have the motivation to workout? Or am just too tired in the AM?
Yup. I have those days too…
So thank you pre-workouts! ^_^
If you are looking for a pre-workout with clean energy, focus, gets you stronger and makes your muscles full while you train… this is THE product for you. But I mean who doesn’t want that?!
More muscle = faster metabolism = fat dies.
And the cool thing about Outlift is that it has Branched Chained Amino Acids (BCAAs) as well!!!
For those of you who aren’t familiar with BCAA’s, amino acids speeds up muscle recovery, help with muscle soreness, muscle fatigue, while maintaining muscle mass :D. We typically get it from food but since our body has to break down food first, BCAAs is amazing because it will go straight into our bloodstream for immediate use by muscle cells. Leading us to my next favorite product.
Pure recovery! For those of you that do a lot of cardio or high intensity training, such as cycling, running etc. Amino Drive has potassium as well to fight muscle cramps! YEEEEAAAA! ^_^ I love sipping on this throughout my workouts as well.
Now if you want to be Superman in the gym… this next product is for you!!!
Oh NIOX! Where do I begin!!!! The love for this product is extremely high! ^_^
I seriously feel like Wonder Women every time I add this to my pre-workout potions LOL. Who’s familiar with Agmatine Sulfate? Read why it is amazing here.
See told you guys I can go on and on lol but I will stop here… for now ^_^
I am super excited as you can tell. I am excited to educate every single one of you and help you achieve your fitness goals in 2015! Feel free to ask me anything, whether it’s supplements, nutrition, training or beauty tips 😉
Let’s make 2015 the best year ever!
A few days ago I received an email from Your Tea asking if I’d like to do a review on their product. Your Tea specializes in organic herbal tea blends for digestion, skin, mood, energy etc. Since I am already a huge tea drinker (the asian in me lol ^_^), I thought to myself, “Why not?” But of course me being me, I do my research and dissect everything.
The first thing I look for in ANY product, especially if I am putting it into my body, is INGREDIENTS.
Jue Ming Zi
Lai Fu Zi
The only ingredient I recognize is Oolong Tea so I went on handy dandy Google to see what the other ingredients were and its benefits ^_^. Before I go on and explain each ingredient, one thing I discovered during my research is that all these ingredients are found in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which I am a huge fan of. Growing up, my mom had a cure for everything and it was all from TCM. So YAY!!! ^_^ Here we go…
Here is what the packaging looks like. Super cute!
Now that I have the ingredients dissected, I am ready to try Your Tea. I will do a full review on taste and effectiveness when I finish the 14 day TEAtox.
December 26, 2014
Finished my TEAtox today and I must say I am very pleased with this tea ^_^. It definitely eliminates bloating and keeps that tummy flat! And the amazing thing is the ingredients are all natural (read my post above). If any of you guys follow Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)… a lot of the ingredients are in this tea. I will be reordering more this week for sure!
