Good afternoon. I hope you’re all having a good day.
I went to physical therapy this morning – my last appointment before BodyPump training this weekend. My hip is feeling a lot better, now it’s my glute that’s painful.
After physical therapy, I had a Larabar. I tried the cashew flavor.
Although I love cashews, this bar wasn’t my favorite. It was a bit bland for me and I prefer the peanut butter, chocolate chip cookie dough, or apple flavors.
I was recently given the opportunity to try out some supplements from SD Pharmaceuticals.
About SD Pharmaceuticals:
SD Pharmaceuticals is the Cutting-Edge, Ingredient Company. The Research Team at SD Pharmaceuticals only produces the most sophisticated ingredients and formulas, and those which are clinically validated in human research studies. If there isn’t any solid research behind an ingredient, then SD Pharmaceuticals’ researchers won’t use it! That’s what really distinguishes SD Pharmaceuticals from every other sports supplement company out there. On top of that, SD Pharmaceuticals only uses the most potent forms of every ingredient available, which includes pharmaceutical-grade synthetics and exclusive standardized herbal extracts.
I was sent the following items:
- Dendrobium 600 – used to promote the health of the stomach, kidney, and lungs
- Diindolylmethane – used to help maintain healthy hormonal balance in the body and support overall well being
- Garcinia Cambogia – used to support healthy serotonin levels and reduce appetite
- Green Coffee Bean – used to support fat loss, provides healthy antioxidants and reduce weight
- Raspberry Ketone – used to inhibit fat accumulation, increases calorie expenditure, and increases fat breakdown
The cool thing about these products is that SD Pharmaceuticals provides information on how to stack these products together for optimal results.
After reviewing these products, I decided that I was most interested in the green coffee bean supplement and felt it’s the supplement that would help benefit me the most at this current time. Therefore, my review is solely for the green coffee bean supplement, although that’s not to say that I won’t try the other ones in the future.
I decided to add the green coffee bean to my normal everyday vitamins/supplements.
On a daily basis, I take:
- Women’s One a Day
- Fish Oil
- Green Coffee Bean
What is Green Coffee Bean?
Green coffee beans are coffee beans that have not yet been roasted. The roasting of coffee beans reduces the chlorogenic acid levels. That’s why green coffee beans have a higher level of chlorogenic acid compared to regular, roasted coffee beans. The chlorogenic acid component in green coffee is what’s thought to be responsible for several of its pharmacological effects, including fat-loss support.
How Does it Work?
Research suggests that it’s the chlorogenic acid constituent of green coffee bean that can support fat loss. Chlorogenic acid from green coffee bean has been shown to have modulating effects on glucose metabolism and it has also been shown to help inhibit fat accumulation and reduce weight in animal and humans studies.
I started taking the green coffee bean on Monday, so it’s only been four days. I will do an update post once I have been taking it a little longer.
The directions say to take 1-3 daily. I take one with breakfast and one with lunch – so two daily. It’s 100% caffeine free so you don’t have to worry about taking it too late in the day.
Even though it supports fat loss, I feel like my appetite has decreased a bit, which is a good thing for me because I am one of those people who is always thinking about food. I haven’t noticed any adverse side effects, and I really like that the SD Pharmaceuticals website shows you the science behind their supplements.
Like I mentioned, I have only been taking it for four days, so I haven’t noticed much difference in fat loss but so far, it’s going good!
