BODY SHAPER is designed to support definition and diet phases in ambitious weight training. It is based on plant-derived phytosubstances such as OPC (oligomeric proanthocyanidins), citrus flavonoids, betaine and ecdysterone. BODY SHAPER is intended to be added to post-workout protein shakes and is therefore deliberately only very mildly flavoured to soften the natural flavour of the high-quality plant extracts.
Ecdysterone is a hormone-like substance and occurs naturally in many plant foods such as spinach and is therefore not on the WADA Doping List. However, like caffeine, it is on the WADA watch list because of its effect.
WATTS’UP is an orange extract with a high content of hesperidin. There are several clinical studies with this ingredient on the effect on energy provision and performance in athletes (van Iensel 2021; The effect of citrus flavonoid extract supplementation on anaerobic capacity in moderately trained athletes: a randomized controlled trial).
CactiNeaTM is a prickly pear extract (Opuntia ficus indica). Prickly pears are a traditional part of the Mexican kitchen. Because of the phytosubstances it contains, prickly pear extract is also used in particular in food supplements for the purpose of weight management and definition.
Other functional ingredients in BODY SHAPER such as L-citrulline, betaine and OPC have a function in nitroxide and thus energy metabolism, choline supports normal fat metabolism. Zinc supports the maintenance of normal testosterone levels and normal protein synthesis. Pantothenic acid contributes to normal synthesis and metabolism of steroid hormones. Nucleotides are the building blocks for new cell formation.
