    CONTROLLED LABS - REDuction FAQ
    (Frequently Asked Questions)

    by pt@controlledlabs.com

    What is REDuction ?

    REDuction

    Fat Incineration Matrix

    Key Attributes:

    * Controlled release formula
    * Energy and Focus
    * Optimize metabolic rate
    * 24/7 fatloss
    * Fast results and muscle definition
    * Control cravings even at night
    * Improved sleeping patterns to enhance lean mass
    * Ephedrine Free
    * Yohimbe Free


    We all know that supplements are not a replacement for nutrition and training, but if you are serious about taking your fatloss to the next level... the answer is REDuction.

    The REDuction CONTROLLED RELEASE fat incineration matrix is precisely formulated with 24/7 fatloss in mind, containing potent thermogenics like Synephrine, Raspberry Ketones, and Cayenne fruit extract. The AM formula contains ingredients to not only CONTROL cravings, but also improve ENERGY, MOOD, and FOCUS during the day. The PM formula keeps your appetite under CONTROL, maximizes your metabolism overnight, and helps you sleep deeper to enhance lean mass.

    It's time to get serious... it's time to get a REDuction




    Where can I purchase REDuction and how much will it cost ?

    Internet retailers will have the best prices (around $30)

    How many tabs per box ?

    120 (60 AM and 60 PM)

    How many tabs per serving ?

    2

    How many servings per day ?

    2 Servings

    2 AM (RED) tabs in the morning
    2 PM (BLACK) tabs in the evening

    So... how many days will each bottle last ?

    30

    Is REDuction for men or women ?

    Both

    What are some of the major differences between Red Acid and REDuction ?

    The major improvement is that the formula takes advantage of the entire day for fatloss, unlike previous products on the market. Many formulas have proved effective, but the side effects aren't always worth it. At CONTROLLED LABS, we listen carefully to our customers... and the result: REDuction

    Does REDuction replace proper diet and cardio ?

    No

    Will REDuction help raise my metabolism / basal metabolic rate ?

    Yes

    What is my basal metabolic rate ?

    Your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the energy used (measured in calories) by your body to perform basic functions, including internal energy expenditure, breathing, and body temperature. It is the number of calories your body would expend if you performed no physical activity throughout the day. Simply put... your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the rate at which your body burns calories while you rest. This is very important because we only have so much time for cardio each day.

    BMR Calculator:
    BMR Calculator

    I'm on a low-carb / carb-cycling diet... is REDuction good for me ?

    REDuction is a great option for you !

    Where can I learn more about the "Fatloss Basics ?"


    What "basic" supplements do you recommend while taking REDuction ?
    Creatine (pre and post-workout) such as Green MAGnitude / Green BULGE
    Whey Protein (pre and post-workout)
    Fish oil
    Multivitamin
    PLENTY of water

    Where can I learn more about various REDuction stacks / combos ?

    Controlled Labs stacking MATRIX:
    Controlled Labs

    Besides the "basic" supplements listed above, what "other" ergogenics, compounds, or supplements do you recommend to maximize my fatloss results while on REDuction ?

    EAA /BCAA such as Purple WRAATH (during cardio / training)
    Carnitine
    Electrolytes (during cardio / training) such as GlycerGROW

    I'm on medication, should I take REDuction ?

    Ask your doctor before taking REDuction

    I have a health condition, should I take REDuction ?

    Ask your doctor before taking REDuction

    Why didn't Controlled Labs include Yohimbe / Yohimbine in REDuction ?

    REDuction is a GREAT choice for those that either "don't respond" to Yohimbe, or respond negatively to Yohimbe

    Is it necessary to cycle REDuction ?

    We generally recommend that you cycle off REDuction every 4-8 weeks for at least 1-2 weeks

    When starting REDuction, should I "taper" up the dosage to assess my tolerance to REDuction?

    This is always a good idea, check the product label for details

    What are some good indications that I'm losing fat while on REDuction ?

    Mirror / Appearance
    Measurements
    Bodyfat caliper
    Bodyweight


    REDuction Formula Highlights


    Simply put, what are Raspberry Ketones ?

    Raspberry ketone 4-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-2-butanone is a compound of red raspberry that has been shown to increase norepinephrine-induced lipolysis significantly enhancing fat metabolism and preventing fat storage. It may have additional benefits as well, so more research is needed on this exciting compound.

    Simply put, what is Bioperine ?

    Bioperine is a patented ingredient that increases the bioavailability of many compounds, making REDuction very effective at a convenient 2 tab dosage

    Simply put, what is Big Red cayenne fruit extract ?

    The powerful thermogenic properties of Big Red cayenne fruit extract are due to capsaicin, and it may also improve circulation.

    Simply put, what is Oleuropein (olive leaf extract) ?

    A cutting phase can potentially weaken the immune system and make us more susceptible to illness. Oleuropein is a very strong immune booster and should work to help stave off any incoming infection via stimulation of phagocytosis. In addition, it acts as an anti-microbial to help rid the body of bad bacteria that can cause infection in the gut thereby not allowing food to be fully utilized. During a cut every ounce of food you ingest is precious and should be used to the fullest benefit.

    Simply put, what is Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid ?

    Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) is an important neurotransmitter that has been used for years as an ergogenic aid. When combined with the stimulants in our exclusive formula, users report a very unique effect that must be experienced to believe, due to enhanced neuron firing in the brain. Users report focused, calm, energy without the jitters often associated with stimulant products of the past. GABA has also been shown to boost post-workout growth hormone levels and enhance fat metabolism (more research is needed on the exact mechanism of action).

    Simply put, what is Isobutyryl-thiamine disulfide ?

    Isobutyryl-thiamine disulfide is a potent ergogenic that improves stamina, focus, and muscular performance during aerobic and anaerobic exercise.

    Simply put, what is Phenylethylamine ?

    A naturally occurring alkaloid that contributes to the energy, pleasure, and stimulating effects of REDuction. It has been shown to have some positive properties comparable to amphetamine, without producing tolerance or physical addiction.

    Simply put, what is Taraxacum Officinale Extract

    Anti-bloat ingredient that soothes the stomach and helps with a shredded look

    Simply put, what is Theobromine ?

    Theobromine is a mild, long lasting stimulant and mood enhancer that may also improve oxygen utilization to boost performance.

    Simply put, what is Hordenine ?

    Hordenine is a potent alkaloid that acts in synergy with the other compounds to help us oxidize fat for energy, increase peripheral blood flow, and promote a feeling of fullness between meals.

    Simply put, what is Cordia Salicifolia ?

    Cordia Salicifolia is a popular tree in brazil and the fruit from the tree is commonly used for its appetite suppressant, anti-viral, and soothing properties. Based on anecdotal feedback, it is believed to help prevent or reduce fatty deposits / cellulite and promote healthy skin.

    I've read this FAQ completely, and I still have a question or concern.. what should I do ?

    i took reduction and dren at the same time and i lost alot of fat. As far as the PM dose, take it when ever you want to go to sleep cause it will knock u out. Thats what i like about reduction the most because i have problems sleeping while taking stims.

    1) PM dose does not have caffeine, would be counter-productive haha
    2) love the GABA, deep sleep with really vivid dreams every night, waking up refreshed.. who wouldnt want that

    This might sound crazy, but would appreciate your answer.

    I'm currently using OEP+Lean Xtreme. I'll be adding Alpha-T2 from Monday.

    Can i add REduction PM to the stack for night dosage?

    Thanks!

    Whats with the formula change between the PM caps and shots? Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems the shots have less mg/ingredients per serving than the pills?

    Yes there is, there was a few things that went into developing the shots- one big thing is taste (Powdered fatloss products are not very common)

    I just started using the AM/PM REDuction Shots and I must say that the flavoring scheme is phenomenal! I was also pleasantly surprised by how flavorful a single serving was when mixed in ~10-15 oz. of water.
