Synephrine is a popular weight loss supplement, but how does it actually work? And how can you get the most out of it? Listen to this episode to find out…

If you’ve spent any time in the fitness space, you’ve heard more weight loss pitches than a TV-loving insomniac.

You know, stuff like…

“This powder is the ‘secret’ to losing 10, 20, even 30 pounds in just a month!”

“This pill blocks the absorption of carbs and suppresses your appetite!”

“A few of these per day and you can eat anything and still lose weight!”

And if you’re like most people, you’ve probably gone in for a few.

“Who knows?” you’ve thought. “Maybe it actually works?”

Well, it’s okay. We’ve all been there. And now we’re skeptical of anything that claims to help us lose weight faster.

That’s good. We should be.

(We should be equally skeptical of any supplement that claims to help with muscle building, too.)

That brings us to this episode and to the supplement synephrine.

It’s commonly found in pre-workout supplements because it’s a light stimulant and in fat burner supplements because it purportedly accelerates weight loss.

How beneficial is it really, though, and what kind of results can you really expect? And what about dosages and side effects?

Let’s tackle all those questions and more and find out if synephrine is worth your money and attention.
