For hand-wringing housewives who want to feel like they look a bit thinner at their church bake sale without any real noticeable progress, non-stim thermogenics are just fine. They might have some mild effects when combined with a strict diet, and looking vaguely less sloppy at the beach is more than enough “progress” for the average person.
For the outliers, however, the people who desperately want to be so lean people can see our pancreas squeezing as it squirts insulin into our bloodstreams, or people who don’t want to get fat as we bulk, we need something far stronger. Something short of DNP but head and shoulders above a lemon juice fast with some added garcinia cambogia. Hell, we don’t live in a vegan commune- we’re gym rats, and as such, we require that good good.
Enter Cannibal Inferno. So named because it turns your body into a raging bonfire of thermogenesis, Cannibal Inferno combines high levels of stimulants to activate your nervous system with other stims that activate the receptors in so called “stubborn fat” to shed those love handles or saddlebags, then backstopped with various other ingredients to give you a full-spectrum thermogenic the likes of which the world has never seen.
Inferno contains as much caffeine as your favorite real energy drinks (I’m not talking about your parents’ weaksauce Red Bull), yohimbine HCl to activate your alpha-2 fat receptors and reduce the fat that just refuses to come off unless you’re starving yourself to death (it mobilizes your super emergency fat stores), and for added stimulanty goodness, and finally synephrine to round out the stimulants. Though it’s not a stimulant, we’ve included grapefruit extract to increase the potency of the stimulants, as it increases the potency of caffeine in particular.
On top of that speedy base we have ginger, grains of paradise, and capsaicin, three different varieties of pungent (the correct word for “spicy”) chemicals that possess fat burning properties. Grains of Paradise raise testosterone levels and contain 6 Paradol, a compound that stimulates abdominal fat loss, while capsaicin raises body temperature, which increases your caloric expenditure at rest.
Then there are the non-stimulant thermogenics, like chromium and acetyl L-carnitine, which help control blood sugar; green coffee bean extract, a mild fat loss agent beloved to the non-stim crowd.
Finally, Cannibal Inferno includes a revolutionary new ingredient called ProGBB. According to one study, “Gamma-butyrobetaine (GBB) is a precursor in the biosynthesis of carnitine, which plays an important role in the beta-oxidation of fatty acids, and is converted to carnitine by gamma-butyrobetaine dioxygenase” (Fujita), meaning that supplementing with this must aid in the oxidation of fatty acid in your system, which means less jiggle in the gutt and butt when you’re strutting through the gym.
Is it possible to get lean without Cannibal Inferno? Of course, but there’s very little point in attempting to walk to China when you can easily spend some money and get there in 12 hours rather than 12 years. Get thermogenic and get the results you want in the timeframe you need them.
