Pyretic X is a well-rounded thermogenic weight loss supplement formulated to help support increased thermogenesis, greater energy expenditure, and reduced body fat.*
When combined with a reduced-calorie diet and exercise program, the ingredients in Pyretic X may help support dietary compliance and calorie burning, thereby promoting more efficient weight loss and better performance in the gym.*
Pyretic X Ingredients
Olive Leaf Extract (20% Oleuropein)
Olive leaf extract is rich in numerous bioactive compounds, the most well-known of which is oleuropein.*
Oleuropein is a versatile compound that has been noted in scientific research to possess a wide range of activities, including*:
- Antimicrobial activity
- Antiviral activity
- hypoglycemic effect
Oleuropein also stimulates BAT (brown adipose tissue), inhibits PPAR-γ receptor, and suppresses the proliferation of adipocytes (fat cells).*
Oleuropein also enhances thermogenesis by increasing uncoupling protein-1 (UCP1).*
Additional research indicates that olive leaf extract supplementation may support better insulin sensitivity and help limit oxidation of LDL (“bad”) cholesterol.*
Animal studies also indicate that olive leaf extract supports thyroid function.*
As you’re probably aware, the thyroid gland is critical to proper functioning of the metabolism.*
Green Coffee Extract
Green coffee beans are raw, unroasted coffee beans. They are rich in many pharmacologically active compounds, including chlorogenic acid.*
Human studies note an inverse association between coffee intake and weight gain.*
Green coffee extract may help reduce body weight and fat mass, possibly due to reducing the amount of carbohydrate taken up by the intestines following a meal.*
Researchers have theorized that green coffee extract may modify hormone secretion and glucose tolerance in humans.*
Green coffee extract’s primary bioactive, chlorogenic acid, appears to increase nitric oxide availability and possess antihypertensive effects.*
Research also indicates chlorogenic acid reduces the hyperglycemic peak associated with carbohydrate ingestion. This lowers insulin activity and may help reduce fat accumulation.*
Caffeine is the well-known central nervous system (CNS) stimulant widely available in foods common to the diet, including coffee, tea, and dark chocolate.*
Caffeine is best known for its ability to increase feelings of mental energy, due to its antagonism of adenosine receptors in the brain.*
Regarding weight loss support, caffeine has been shown to help to boost metabolism, increase calorie burning, and enhance lipolysis (the “liberating” of stored fatty acids).[10,11]*
Caffeine further supports weight loss by acting as a mild appetite suppressant, which may help reduce calorie intake at meal time.*
Dieting on low calories is also known to lead to feelings of sluggish, lethargy, and a general lack of motivation to train hard.*
Caffeine can help increase energy and motivation due to its ability to stimulate dopamine (“the mood and motivation” molecule) release in the brain, which increases mood, motivation and focus.*
Interestingly, dopamine also increases thermogenesis in brown adipose tissue, further increasing calorie burning.*
Theobromine is a chemical cousin of caffeine and the principal alkaloid in Theobroma cacao (the cacao bean). It’s also found in varying quantities in coffee and dark chocolate.*
Theobromine is traditionally used as a bronchodilator and as a vasodilator as well as a diuretic.*[14,15]
Research in animals shows that supplementation with a theobromine-rich cocoa powder encourages significant weight loss.*
Anecdotally, theobromine supplies a smoother, subtler, longer-lasting energy that complements the fast-acting energy of caffeine. It’s thought that combining the two may help limit the unwanted energy crash that accompanies high doses of caffeine.*
This may be due, in part, to theobromine having a longer half-life than caffeine.*
Pyretic X contains an additional 100mg of fast-acting caffeine anhydrous to further increase feelings of enhanced mental and physical energy to complement the smooth energy of Natural caffeine.*
In total, Pyretic X contains 253mg of caffeine per full serving (2 capsules).
Yohimbe Bark (8% Yohimbine)
Yohimbine (pausinystalia johimbe) is a plant native to western and central Africa.*
Extracts from yohimbe have long been used in traditional medicine as an aphrodisiac.*
The primary active constituent in yohibe, yohimbine, is a prominent weight loss supplement due to its ability to antagonize (“block”) alpha-adrenergic receptors, thereby supporting fat burning.*
“Stubborn” fat areas have higher concentrations of alpha receptors and blocking them encourages increased fat-burning in those areas as greater amounts of fat-burning catecholamines (noradrenaline and adrenaline) can then bind to the beta receptors on fat cells.*
Yohimbine has also been explored as a potential ergogenic and body recomposition aid.*
Paradoxine is a research-backed, patented extract of Grains of Paradise (Aframomum Melegueta) standardized to 12.5% 6-paradol.*
6-paradol is an aromatic ketone that is the major bioactive constituent of Grains of Paradise.*
Research indicates that supplementation with Grains of Paradise extract may stimulate thermogenesis, increase energy expenditure, and decrease body fat.[18,19,20]*
Cayenne pepper contains the fiery alkaloid capsaicin which has been noted to possess some very enticing weight loss benefits.*
Capsaicin has been noted in research to help reduce appetite and increase satiety by increasing glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) and decreasing ghrelin (the hunger hormone).*
Additional studies indicate that capsaicin can stimulate brown fat thermogenesis, which supports greater energy expenditure and calorie burning.*
Capsaicin may also help reduce appetite and calorie intake, due to its binding and activation of transient receptor potential vanilloid-1 (TRPV1) in the mouth, stomach and small intestine.*
Activation of TRPV1 receptor stimulates the release of noradrenaline and dopamine, which have been noted to enhance weight loss and exercise performance.*
Consume 2 capsules daily.
To assess tolerance, it is suggested to begin with one capsule per day.
Never exceed 4 capsules in any single 24-hour period.

I love all of your products except this one. Made me quesy and shaky. Tried it twice with same result.
Have gone through a whole bottle now and have definitely noticed a better cut this time around. We’ll continue to use.
I've noticed my appetite for snacking is gone and my body is getting cut up nicely and it's only been 7 days. Only thing negative is that after I ordered THEN I received an email for a buy one get one free if I downloaded app. Wish I got that email before I purchased. I immediately emailed my problem with no response. That said, I use a couple of these products and all great.
This stuff works great and gives a great pump within 15-30 mins.
Only draw back is I ended up using only maybe 3/4 of it because of moisture. Not sure if the moisture absorbing pad wasn't working but the product dried up and became gummy. The container was not cracked and the lid was always on tight.
