Though primarily used for fat-loss, Higenamine is also fairly common in pre-workouts because it can increase energy levels and boost focus during workouts.
Singular Sport Higenamine is ultra-pure Higenamine HCl and, like all Singular Sport products, it's Third Party Tested to guarantee that what's on the label is actually in the product.
Higenamine is found in a lot of pre-workout and fat-burning supplements, but there's actually not much accurate information out there about what it really is. Most supplement companies that use it in their formulas don't even discuss it at all and the ones that don't do a very good job.
So let's just start from the top...
Higenamine, also known as Norcoclaurine, belongs to a class of chemicals known as beta-receptor agonists. More specifically, Higenamine is a beta-2-receptor agonist. This simply means it has a special affinity for the 2nd sub-unit of beta-receptors.
You're body has two types of receptors that regulate fat-loss: alpha-receptors and beta-receptors. Put simply, beta-receptors initiate Lipolysis (fat-breakdown) and alpha-receptors stop Lipolysis.
By agonizing (activating) beta-receptors, Higenamine directly stimulates Lipolysis. This is perhaps the most direct mechanism that exists with fat-loss supplements.
Most supplements that supposedly burn fat have some long, complicated explanation of how they work. Higenamine, on the other hand, is quite simple...
Higenamine supplementation directly increases Lipolysis which in turn increases the availability of Free Fatty Acids.
Research has shown that an increase in Lipolysis generally results in more fat being burned.
So, taking Higenamine prior to exercise will increase the amount of fat you burn considerably.
The more you exercise, the more fat you'll burn.
As we briefly discussed earlier, Higenamine is usually used for fat-loss but many people use it purely for the stimulant aspect. Because it stimulates the central nervous system (CNS), Higenamine is capable of:
In fact, most "high-stimulant" pre-workout supplements rely heavily on Higenamine.
Research has yet to reveal a clinical dose for Higenamine, but it's usually found in doses of 25-75mg. Some products contain up to 100mg, but not everyone is able to tolerate such a high dose.
Singular Sport Higenamine comes in 25mg capsules, allowing for maximum flexibility when it comes to finding your ideal dose.
If you're working out several days out of the week and you use Higenamine each time, you can see noticeable fat-loss in as little as two or three weeks.
Immediately upon taking Higenamine, you may also feel more alert and focused which will typically last for an hour or two before gradually tapering off.
Higenamine isn't known for causing a crash like most stimulant fat-burners do.
Research has confirmed that Higenamine supplementation has no direct on effect on:
Meaning it's pretty safe.
People who are particularly sensitive to stimulants like Caffeine and Rauwolscine should probably avoid Higenamine though.
Higenamine is found in nature, but it can also be synthetically derived. Synthetic Higenamine is usually found as Higenamine HCl and it's generally 98-99% pure.
Mostly though, you'll find Higenamine in the form of a plant extract such as Nelumbo Nucifera or Aconite Root.
These extracts are alleged (by the manufacturer) to contain a certain amount of Higenamine, but it's basically impossible to tell.
In fact, the actual amount can be quite different.
That's exactly why Singular Sport Higenamine is Higenamine HCl, and we Third Party Test every batch to ensure that the label claim is accurate.
You can gamble with some cheap extract, but if you want to be sure you're getting what you pay for, Singular Sport Higenamine is the only way to go.
