Axe & Sledge: 212' Thermo

Axe & Sledge

GETTING LEAN IS RATHER SIMPLE, BUT RARELY EASY. IN ORDER TO LOSE FAT, YOU MUST BE IN A SLIGHT CALORIC DEFICIT. IN OTHER WORDS, YOU HAVE TO BURNING MORE CALORIES THEN YOU CONSUME ON A DAILY BASIS. A CALORIC DEFICIT IF OFTEN ACHIEVED THROUGH A COMBINATION OF DIETING AND EXERCISE.

IN THE BEGINNING OF A DIET, YOUR BODY IS LIKELY PRIME FOR FAT LOSS, SO LOSING THE FIRST 10-15 POUNDS MAY BE RELATIVELY EASY. HOWEVER, AS YOU GET LEANER, YOUR BODY STARTS TO FIGHT AGAINST YOU BECAUSE IT THINKS YOU’RE STARVING. IT MAY START TO SEEM LIKE NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU MOVE OR HOW LITTLE YOU EAT, THE SCALE IS NO LONGER MOVING IN THE DIRECTION YOU DESIRE.

NOT TO MENTION, DIETING OFTEN RESULTS IN UNCONTROLLABLE HUNGER AND CRAVINGS, FATIGUE, DIFFICULTY CONCENTRATING, REDUCED PERFORMANCE, AND IRRITABILITY. WHEN YOU START TO EXPERIENCE THE NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF DIETING, YOU MAY WANT TO CONSIDER ADDING IN A WELL FORMULATED THERMOGENIC.

AND WE’VE GOT JUST WHAT YOU NEED…

212º THERMO: A POWERFUL THERMOGENIC

212º THERMO IS A HIGH-POWERED FAT BURNER THAT’S SPECIFICALLY FORMULATED TO:

  • SUPPRESS APPETITE
  • REDUCE CRAVINGS
  • INCREASE ENERGY LEVELS
  • ELEVATE MOOD
  • ENHANCE MENTAL FOCUS
  • IMPROVE YOUR BODY’S ABILITY TO BURN FAT

UNLIKE DOUBLE TIME AND FYRED, WHICH ARE BOTH CAPSULE-BASED FAT BURNERS, 212º THERMO IS A POWDER-BASED FAT BURNER. USING A POWDER AS OPPOSED TO CAPSULES, ALLOWS US TO USE HIGHER DOSES OF VARIOUS INGREDIENTS, MAKING THIS THE STRONGEST FAT BURNER WE’VE CREATED.

212º THERMO FEATURES THREE CUTTING-EDGE TRADEMARKED INGREDIENTS, INCLUDING INNOSLIM® FROM NULIV SIENCE, CALORIBURN™ GP FROM NNB NUTRITION, AND BIOPERINE® FROM SABINSA CORPORATION. EVERY SERVING CONTAINS 300 MILLIGRAMS OF CAFFEINE, 100 MILLIGRAMS OF THEOBROMINE, AND 40 MILLIGRAMS OF BITTER ORANGE EXTRACT (STANDARDIZED TO 6% PERCENT SYNEPHRINE) TO QUICKLY RAISE YOUR ENERGY LEVELS WHILE ENHANCING FATTY ACID METABOLISM AND SUPPRESSING YOUR APPETITE.

WE’VE ALSO INCLUDED TWO FORMS OF L-CARNITINE – N-ACTEYL-L-CARNITINE AND L-CARNITINE TARTRATE – TO FURTHER PROMOTE FATTY ACID METABOLISM. THERE’S 40 MILLIGRAMS OF GAMMA BUYTROBETAINE (GBB) INCLUDED TO MAKE YOU SWEAT BY INCREASING THERMOGENESIS. LASTLY, 212º THERMO CONTAINS 1,000 MILLIGRAMS OF L-TYROSINE TO FURTHER BOOST YOUR FOCUS AND MOOD.

212º THERMO INGREDIENT BREAKDOWN

EVERY TUB OF 212º THERMO CONTAINS 30 SERVINGS, EACH SCOOP IS APPROXIMATELY 6 GRAMS. HERE’S A BREAKDOWN OF EACH INGREDIENT THAT’S INCLUDED IN 212º THERMO!

L-CARNITINE - 2 GRAMS (N-ACETYL-L-CARNITINE AND L-CARNITINE TARTRATE)

L-CARNITINE IS A MOLECULE THAT HELPS THE BODY TURN FAT INTO ENERGY. IN FACT, ONE OF IT’S MAIN FUNCTIONS IS TO TRANSPORT LONG-CHAIN FATTY ACIDS INTO THE MITOCHONDRIA WHERE THEY CAN BE OXIDIZED. IN OTHER WORDS, THE BODY CAN BREAK DOWN THE FATTY ACIDS TO FORM ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATE (ATP) WHICH IS THE CELLS MAIN ENERGY CURRENCY.

ALTHOUGH THE BODY CAN SYNTHESIZE L-CARNITINE, SUPPLEMENTING WITH ADDITIONAL L-CARNITINE CAN BE HELPFUL FOR FAT LOSS. NOT TO MENTION, CERTAIN SUPPLEMENTAL FORMS OF L-CARNITINE PROVIDE OTHER BENEFITS. FOR EXAMPLE, N-ACETYL-L-CARNITINE CROSSES THE BLOOD BRAIN BARRIER AND IMPROVES COGNITIVE FUNCTION. L-CARNITINE TARTRATE HAS BEEN SHOWN TO IMPROVE RECOVERY AFTER STRENOUS EXERCISE. 

EVERY SERVING OF 212º THERMO CONTAINS A TOTAL OF 2 GRAMS OF L-CARNITINE COMING FROM 1,500 MILLIGRAMS OF N-ACTEYL-L-CARNITINE AND 500 MILLIGRAMS OF L-CARNITINE TARTRATE!

L-TYROSINE - 1 GRAM

L-TYROSINE IS A NON-ESSENTIAL AMINO ACID, WHICH MEANS YOUR BODY CAN SYNTHESIZE IT FROM ANOTHER AMINO ACID CALLED PHENYLALANINE. HOWEVER, WHEN YOUR BODY IS UNDER A LOT OF STRESS, WHICH IS COMMON DURING A CUTTING PHASE, IT’S VERY BENEFICIAL TO SUPPLEMENT WITH ADDITIONAL L-TYROSINE. 

TYROSINE IS USED AS A PRECURSOR FOR THE PRODUCTION OF CATECHOLAMINES DOPAMINE, EPINEPHRINE, AND NOREPINEPHRINE. DOPAMINE IS A NEUROTRANSMITTER THAT’S RELEASED IN THE BRAIN THAT GIVES YOU AN INTENSE FEELING OF PLEASURE. DOPAMINE ALSO CONTRIBUTES TO MOTOR CONTROL, OTHER EMOTIONS, AND THOUGHT PROCESSING.

EPINEPHRINE AND NOREPINEPHRINE ARE TWO NEUROTRANSMITTERS AND HORMONES THAT HAVE VERY SIMILAR EFFECTS ON THE BODY. THEY BOTH PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN YOUR SYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM (FIGHT OR FLIGHT RESPONSE). ALONG WITH INCREASING YOUR HEART RATE, BLOOD FLOW, AND BLOOD PRESSURE, NOREPINEPHRINE AND EPINEPHRINE HELP RELEASE FATTY ACIDS AND GLUCOSE FROM ADIPOSE AND GLYCOGEN STORAGE TO BE USED FOR ENERGY PRODUCTION.

EVERY SERVING OF 212º THERMO CONTAINS 1,000 MILLIGRAMS OF L-TYROSINE!

CAFFEINE ANHYDROUS - 300 MILLIGRAMS

CAFFEINE ANHYDROUS IS A DEHYDRATED FORM OF CAFFEINE THAT’S EXTREMELY FAST-ACTING, EFFECTIVE, AND SAFE. IN GENERAL, CAFFEINE IS ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE AND SAFE ERGOGENIC AIDS IN THE SPORTS NUTRITION INDUSTRY.

CAFFEINE ANHYDROUS QUICKLY RAISES ENERGY LEVELS, ALERTNESS, AND CONCENTRATION, BY BLOCKING ADENOSINE FROM BINDING TO ITS RECEPTORS IN THE BRAIN. ADENOSINE IS A NEUCLEOSIDE THAT MAKES YOU FEEL TIRED BY SLOWING DOWN NEURAL ACTIVITY.

ALONG WITH BOOSTING YOUR ENERGY LEVELS, CAFFEINE ALSO INCREASES THERMOGENESIS, WHICH HELPS YOU BURN MORE CALORIES. PAIR THAT WITH CAFFEINE’S ABILITY TO REDUCE YOUR APPETITE AND YOU HAVE A GREAT INGREDIENT TO HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT.

EVERYONE’S TOLERANCE OF CAFFEINE IS DIFFERENT, SO WE RECOMMEND STARTING WITH HALF A SERVING AND SCALING FROM THERE. KEEP IN MIND THAT THAT YOU CAN BECOME TOLERANT OF CAFFEINE, SO IT’S A GOOD IDEA TO TAKE A CAFFEINE BREAK ONCE IN A WHILE.

EVERY SERVING OF 212º THERMO CONTAINS 300 MILLIGRAMS OF CAFFEINE!

INNOSLIM® - 250 MILLIGRAMS

THE FIRST OF THREE TRADEMARKED INGREDIENTS IN 212º THERMO IS INNOSLIM® FROM NULIV SCIENCE! INNOSLIM® IS A STIMULANT-FREE INGREDIENT COMPOSED OF NLF-05 PANAX NOTOGINSENG AND ASTRAGALUS MEMBRANACEUS TO REGULATE BLOOD SUGAR AND LIPID METABOLISM THROUGH THE ADIPONECTIN AND AMPK SIGNALING PATHWAY.

THE TWO MAIN BENEFITS OF INNOSLIM® INCLUDE:

  • WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

INNOSLIM® WORKS AT THE CELLULAR LEVEL TO IMPROVE METABOLIC HEALTH BY SUPPORTING AN INCREASE OF ADIPONECTIN AND THE ACTIVATION OF AMPK. THIS ADDRESSES THE ROOT OF METABOLIC HEALTH CHALLENGES BY SUPPORTING LIPID METABOLISM THROUGH THE ADIPONECTIN AND AMPK SIGNALING PATHWAYS. ADIPONECTIN AND AMPK ARE TWO CRITICAL PROTEINS IN THE HUMAN BODY WHEN DISCUSSING METABOLIC HEALTH.

ADIPONECTIN IS THE HORMONE THAT HELPS TO REGULATE GLUCOSE LEVELS AND FATTY ACID BREAKDOWN. IT DOES THIS BY ACTIVATING A ‘SPARK PLUG’ FOR ENZYMES CALLED AMPK, AMONGST OTHERS! AS A RESULT, AMPK, THE BODY’S MASTER SWITCH, ACTIVATES OTHER ENZYMES THAT WORK TOGETHER TO BREAK DOWN FOOD INTO USABLE ENERGY AND STORE EXCESS GLUCOSE IN MUSCLE CELLS AS GLYCOGEN. DURING THIS PROCESS ONE EVENT TRIGGERS ANOTHER, WORKING TO KEEP YOUR BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS BALANCED.

  • GLUCOSE HEALTH

REGULATING HEALTHY BLOOD SUGAR AND INSULIN LEVELS IS ESSENTIAL TO METABOLIC HEALTH. INNOSLIM® SUPPORTS THIS BY HELPING TO DECREASE FASTING BLOOD GLUCOSE, GLUCOSE AUC, INSULIN, INSULIN RESISTANCE, TRIGLYCERIDES, AND SDLDL-C LEVELS TO HELP MAINTAIN HEALTHY GLUCOSE LEVELS.

INSULIN RESISTANCE INCREASES HUNGER AND LEADS TO MORE FOOD INTAKE. INNOSLIM® DEMONSTRATED TO REDUCE INSULIN RESISTANCE AND INCREASE FATTY ACID BREAKDOWN SUGGESTING IT CAN BE PART OF AN EFFECTIVE WEIGHT MANAGEMENT PROGRAM WHEN ACCOMPANIED BY LOWER CALORIC INTAKE, INCREASED PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES, QUALITY SLEEP, AND ABSENCE OF UNDERLYING HORMONAL IMBALANCE AND CHRONIC INFLAMMATION.

EVERY SERVING OF 212º THERMO CONTAINS 250 MILLIGRAMS OF INNOSLIM®, WHICH IS THE CLINICALLY STUDIED DOSE!

THEOBROMINE - 100 MILLIGRAMS

THEOBROMINE IS ONE OF THE PRIMARY ALKALOIDS FOUND IN COCAO BEANS, COCOA, AND CHOCOLATE. THEOBROMINE HAS A SIMILAR CHEMICAL STRUCTURE, MECHANISM OF ACTION, AND BENEFITS AS CAFFEINE.

SIMILAR TO CAFFEINE, THEOBROMINE BLOCKS ADENOSINE RECEPTORS, BUT IT ALSO INCREASES THE ACTIVITY OF CAMP (CYCLIC ADENOSINE MONOPHOSPHATE) WHICH IS A SECONDARY MESSENGER FOR NUMEROUS BIOLOGICAL PROCESSES, INCLUDING FAT LOSS AND MUSCLE GROWTH.

THE PRIMARY BENEFITS OF THEOBROMINE INCLUDE INCREASED MOOD, ENERGY, MENTAL ALERTNESS, AND CONCENTRATION. THEOBROMINE IS ALSO ADVANTAGEOUS FOR OVERALL CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH BECAUSE IT PROMOTES VASODILATION OF THE BLOOD VESSELS, ALLOWING FOR ENHANCED BLOOD FLOW.

EVERY SERVING OF 212º THERMO CONTAINS 100 MILLIGRAMS OF THEOBROMINE!

GAMMA-BUYTROBETAINE (GBB) - 40 MILLIGRAMS

TO REALLY TURN UP THE HEAT, WE ADDED GBB, WHICH STANDS FOR GAMMA BUYTROBETAINE. GBB IS A NATURALLY OCCURRING MOLECULE THAT THE BODY CAN USE TO CONVERT INTO L-CARNITINE. AS WE DISCUSSED PREVIOUSLY, L-CARNITINE IS ESSENTIAL FOR TURNING FAT INTO ENERGY BECAUSE IT TRANSPORTS FATTY ACIDS INTO THE MITOCHONDRIA. IF THIS STEP DOESN’T OCCUR, THE BODY CANNOT FULLY BREAKDOWN THE FATTY ACIDS AND CREATE USEABLE ENERGY.

UNLIKE L-CARNITINE SUPPLEMENTS, GBB MAKES YOU SWEAT MORE THAN USUAL BECAUSE THE CONVERSION OF GBB TO L-CARNITINE IS VERY EXOTHERMIC. IN OTHER WORDS, IT RELEASES A LOT OF HEAT IN THE PROCESS. IN ADDITION TO INCREASING THERMOGENESIS, THERE’S SOME EVIDENCE THAT SUGGESTS GBB CAN BOOST NITRIC OXIDE PRODUCTION, LEADING TO GREATER BLOOD FLOW, OXYGEN, AND NUTRIENT DELIVERY.

EVERY SERVING OF 212º THERMO CONTAINS 40 MILLIGRAMS OF GBB!

CALORIBURN™ GP - 40 MILLIGRAMS

THE SECOND TRADEMARKED INGREDIENT IN 212º THERMO IS CALORIBURN™ GP, A HIGH-QUALITY GRAINS OF PARADISE EXTRACT FROM NNB NUTRITION. GRAINS OF PARADISE, ALSO KNOWN AS AFRAMOMUM MELEGUETA, IS A SPECIES OF THE GINGER FAMILY. GRAINS OF PARADISE CONTAINS SEVERAL BIOACTIVE CONSTITUENTS THAT HAVE POWERFUL METABOLISM BOOSTING PROPERTIES, INCLUDING 6-PARADOL, 6-GINGERDIONE, 6-SHOGAOL, AND 6-GINGEROL.

CALORIBURN™ GP HAS BEEN SHOWN TO EFFECTIVELY ACTIVATE BAT (BROWN ADIPOSE TISSUE), WHICH IS A VERY UNIQUE TYPE OF FAT CELL THAT IS BOTH THERMOGENIC AND METABOLICALLY ACTIVE, BURNING CALORIES RATHER THAN STORING THEM LIKE TYPICAL WHITE ADIPOSE TISSUE (WAT). BAT IS INCREASINGLY RECOGNIZED AS A POWERFUL METABOLIC TARGET, PLAYING A SIGNIFICANT ROLE IN THE REGULATION OF BODY COMPOSITION AND ENERGY EXPENDITURE.

STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT CALORIBURN™ GP HAS THE POTENTIAL TO:

  • DECREASE STORED BODY FAT AND IMPROVE BODY COMPOSITION
  • DIVERT DIETARY CALORIES AWAY FROM FAT STORAGE TO HEAT GENERATION
  • HELP PREVENT WEIGHT RE-GAIN FOLLOWING A WEIGHT LOSS REGIMEN
  • INCREASE METABOLIC RATE AND CALORIC EXPENDITURE IN A NON-STIMULANT MANNER

EVERY SERVING OF 212º THERMO CONTAINS 40 MILLIGRAMS OF CALORIBURN™ GP, WHICH IS THE CLINICALLY STUDIED DOSE!

BITTER ORANGE EXTRACT (STD. 6% SYNEPHRINE) - 40 MILLIGRAMS

BITTER ORANGE EXTRACT, ALSO KNOWN AS CITRUS AURANTIUM, IS A CITRUS FRUIT THAT CONTAINS SEVERAL BENEFICIAL BIOACTIVE CONSTITUENTS, SUCH AS SYNEPHRINE. SYNEPHRINE IS A AN ALKALOID THAT HAS A COMPARABLE MECHANISM OF ACTION AS EPHEDRINE BUT IS MUCH LESS POTENT.

SYNEPRHINE IS STRUCTURALLY SIMILAR TO THE CATECHOLAMINES EPINEPHRINE AND NOREPINEPHRINE, SO IT ACTS UPON THE SYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM. SYNEPRHINE IS COMMONLY USED IN FAT BURNERS BECAUSE IT HAS THE ABILITY DECREASE APPETITE, RAISE ENERGY EXPENDITURE, AND INCREASE FAT BREAKDOWN.

EVERY SERVING OF 212º THERMO CONTAINS 40 MILLIGRAMS OF BITTER ORANGE EXTRACT STANDARDIZED TO 6% SYNEPHRINE!

BIOPERINE® BLACK PEPPER EXTRACT - 5 MILLIGRAMS

TO ROUND OUT THE FORMULA, WE ADDED BIOPERINE®, ANOTHER TRADEMARKED INGREDIENT DEVELOPED BY SABINSA CORPORATION. BIOPERINE® IS A HIGH-QUALITY BLACK PEPPER EXTRACT THAT’S STANDARDIZED TO CONTAIN AT LEAST 95% PIPERINE, WHICH ITS THE MAIN BIOACTIVE CONSTITUENT.

BIOPERINE® HAS SEVERAL BENEFITS, BUT IT’S PRIMARY KNOWN FOR ITS ABILITY TO INCREASE THE ABSORPTION OF OTHER NUTRIENTS. IMPROVING THE BIOAVAILABILITY OF THE ENTIRE FORMULA WILL LEAD TO GREATER EFFECTIVENESS BECAUSE THE BODY IS ACTUALLY ABLE TO ABSORB AND UTILIZE THE OTHER INGREDIENTS. 

ADDITIONAL RESEARCH IS STILL NEEDED, BUT THE PROPOSED MECHANISM OF ACTIONS INCLUDE:

  • MODULATING EFFLUX MECHANISMS
  • MODULATING METABOLIZING ENZYMES
  • ENHANCING THERMOGENESIS

EVERY SERVING OF 212º THERMO CONTAINS 5 MILLIGRAMS OF BIOPERINE®!

LEARN MORE ABOUT BIOPERINE®.

SUGGESTED USE

AS A DIETARY SUPPLEMENT, MIX 1 SCOOP OF 212º THERMO WITH 6-8 OUNCES OF COLD WATER. FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS, CONSUME 15-20 MINUTES BEFORE TRAINING. DO NOT TAKE ANY OTHER PRODUCTS THAT CONTAIN STIMULANTS WHEN TAKING 212º THERMO. DO NOT TAKE WITHIN 5-6 HOURS PRIOR TO SLEEP.

WE RECOMMEND STARTING WITH A HALF SCOOP TO ASSESS TOLERANCE BEFORE USING A FULL SERVING. SINCE THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS GBB, IT WILL INCREASE YOUR BODY’S ABILITY TO SWEAT, SO IT'S BEST USED BEFORE RESISTANCE TRAINING OR CARDIO.
