1.What is Citrus Extract?
Citrus fruits are notably rich in flavonoid compounds and represent an important source of dietary flavonoids, including hesperidin, hesperetin, naringin, naringenin, diosmin, quercetin, rutin, nobiletin, tangeretin, and others.
Hesperidin is a compound in orange peels that gives the flavonoid hesperitin to the body, and this flavonoid mediates most benefits of hesperidin including a possible increase in circulation and possible brain protective effects. Hesperidin, alongside naringenin, are known as the main citrus flavonoids.
Synephrine is another active ingredient of bitter orange, which is thought to possess benefits for weight loss, athletic performance, digestion, and many other conditions. It is a natural chemical and structurally similar to catecholamines (adrenaline and noradrenaline), which are the compounds that cause the breakdown of fat cells. Synephrine is a central nervous system stimulant, with effects very similar to ephedrine, but with fewer detrimental effects.
2.How Citrus Extract Works
Consumption of citrus fruit has been associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.
Some studies showed hesperidin consumption may decrease blood pressure and improve blood vessel function After four weeks of daily consumption of orange juice or a hesperidin beverage, participants' diastolic blood pressure was significantly lower, and their endothelial function (after eating a meal) had significantly improved. In additional, hesperidin also shows promise for people who have had a heart attack.
Synephrine is similar to ephedrine in mechanism, meaning that synephrine may be able to induce fat loss by increasing our fat burning (for fuel), and increasing heat expenditure, thus essentially boosting our metabolism and burning more calories.
Some researchers have argued that P-synephrine may alter the function of the liver, which produces many enzymes and plays a large role in regulating digestion and energy production in the body. In animal and cell studies, it:
Increased the breakdown of glucose and glycogen in the liver of rats and mice.
Prevented the conversion of sugars into fats in mice
Increased the amount of ATP available to power chemical reactions in the liver of mice
Increased glucose consumption in muscle by stimulating AMPK, an enzyme that senses fuel levels in cells and stimulates the burning of fats. It also increases the intake of sugar into cells.
Inhibited α-amylase and α-glucosidase, enzymes that digest complex starches. This is likely to prevent post-meal blood sugar spikes
