Acacia Rigidula has recently gotten a lot of attention as possibly a natural source for weight loss. Any potential solution is a welcomed one at this point, with the obesity rates that we currently have in North America. Native to Texas and central Mexica, this herb has been used regularly for generations by Native Americans due to the variety of benefits that it offers. What are these benefits? Here we’ll look at the most important benefits that Acacia Rigidula (Blackbrush) bring to the table…
What is is Acacia Rigidula Made of?
We will try not to get too technical on you here, but here are the basics… It naturally contains a number of chemicals and amines. Some of them are tyramines, dopamines, tryptamines, hordenine and amphetamines. Together they’re known to stimulate the production of adrenaline or epinephrine, dopamine, noradrenaline and catecholamines. In a nutshell, they stimulate beta-receptors and increase your metabolism, decrease your appetite and burn fat.
Lypolysis – How it Helps with Weight Loss
It’s only natural to eat less if your appetite isn’t as strong as it normally is. That of course leads to a reduction in the amount of carbs you eat. When your body isn’t getting the carbs it once was, it will start to use your fat to create energy instead of carbs – burning fat.
Controlling Your Appetite
Your body has neurotransmitters that basically tell you when you’re hungry (or it thinks you’re hungry). The amphetamines naturally found in Acacia Rigidula inhibit them from doing this. Simultaneously, they’re increasing your heart rate, metabolic rate, blood pressure and your “Fight or Flight” hormones.
Increasing Your Metabolism
When you use Acacia Rigidula, it releases norepinephrine, epinephrine and catecholamines into your body upon activation of the beta-adrenergic receptors. This leads to peripheral blood vessels being dilated and your heart rate/pulse rate being increased, which increases your metabolism in order to keep up.
And guess what? Not only does it provide these weight loss benefits, but it’s also been shown to naturally improve your mood. It does so by stimulating the release of dopamine in your pleasure-sensing part of the brain.
While it’s completely natural and used in a growing number of supplements, you should always talk to your doctor when starting a new regimen. This is especially true if you’re on medication, have health problems, are pregnant or nursing.
