I am going to be doing a log for BPS . I am 27 5'10" and currently weigh 190. I have been on and off serious diets since around 2005. I have always loved this website since I have found out about it. I am really excited to log this product and give a special thanks to BPS for the chance to do it. Before I go any further I want to give you the information that BPS provided on the product.
Combustion 90 Caps
Combustion is a carefully formulated synergistic fat burner that will give almost immediate thermogenic effects. We have used four powerful ingredients at their perfect doses that all work together. One bottle provides a full month supply of this powerful product.
Rauwolscine, also known as alpha- , is an extremely superior form of . Old yohimbine used to give people terrible anxiety, jitters, increased BP, etc. The stuff is just plain nasty. But with a slight chemical change, alpha-yohimbine is an extreme fat burner with far less side effects compared to regular yohimbine. In fact, many people do not get any negative effects from this ingredient.
This ingredient is special because it can turn off a receptor that when on, actually works to store fat on your body. Turning off this fat storing mechanism isn’t all though. This ingredient now allows the fat burning effects of the other ingredients of this formula to be more powerful.
Rauwsolcine HCl is a selective alpha 2-adrenergic antagonist. Alpha 2 receptors are prevalent in the midsection, lower back, and chest. It is also a 5-HT1A receptor agonist, which can decrease heart rate and blood pressure, as well as increase sense of well being. This is why Combustion should not be used with any form of antidepressant.
This ingredient has the ability to mimic and upregulate norepinephrine in the body. With this powerful stimulant, your body can direct fat burning mechanisms towards the turned off receptors from Rauwolscine HCl, as well as increase your energy and metabolic rate.
Lets face it…caffeine works. Numerous studies show its ability to increase energy expenditure, increase metabolic rate, increase lipolysis, etc. We did not put caffeine in this formula just because it’s a good stimulant, but because it ads synergy to the formula. Taking caffeine in combination to the other ingredients of Combustion are going to make each ingredient more powerful themselves!
This ingredient is the whipped cream of the formula. One problem many people face when taking stimulant products is poor absorption. Piperine will increase the bioavailablilty of these ingredients, since it has been shown to prevent the breakdown of monoamines.
The cherry on top. Instead of using some useless form of magnesium or silicon to fill the empty space of Combustion capsules, we decided to make one more addition to the formula – calcium carbonate. Amines, like the ingredients in Combustion, have shown worse absorption when the pH of the stomach is too acidic. Calcium carbonate is a buffer that will increase the pH of the stomach (this making it less acidic) temporarily to increase the absorption of Combustion. It is the common ingredient in all of the antacid products you buy at the store. Nothing more, nothing less, just good formulation.
We have tested all of these ingredients by themselves, and in many different ratios of doses. We have found the formula of Combustion is the perfect balance.

Anyhow, I got this in the mail yesterday and took my first pill around 1:30PM.
First Impressions: It smells like pepper. So that helps me know they aren't pulling my leg about whats in it haha. The bottle is actually pretty cool looking as well. In a supplement store it could have caught my attention. After taking 1 pill I felt good. NOt totally stimmed out or anything, but a nice even flow of energy.
Because I do have a good tolerance I decided to take 2 pills first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Yeah, this got me where I wanted to be. Eating breakfast about 30 minutes later, I was drumming on my leg, and knew I was ready for the gym. One thing I hate about stim products is the jitters. With the amount of energy I got from the pills I thought for sure I was going to have some jitters, but didnt! I had a surprise Dr. Visit with my wife which I thought would throw off my routine. It didn't. I ended up in the gym about 2 hours after taking the pill.
First time lifting after taking this This part is interesting. I figured 2 hours later, I would feel little if anything. The first thing I noticed was thermogenic factors. I heated WAY up. This says a lot to me because the stuff I was taking literally right before got me stimmed out of my mind, but I wouldnt break a sweat. With this I was one hot mess (the good hot), and I had a lot of energy to get through the lift. Here is what I did today
Dead LIfts, Close Grib Lat Pulls, dumbell curls, cable curls, and upright rows. I feel pretty swoll right now. Because the pills tell me to take them 6-8 hours apart, im planning my next dose at 3:30.
If you are interested in the diet I am on check out the Scivationbooks website. To access it just type that in with .com I am doing "The Diet Solution: The New American Diet" I am a meso-endomorph so I am doing my best to have in all my carbs by noon. Anyhow, I took some before pictures yesterday upon receiving this delightful bottle and will hopefully be posting them later today. I am not sure tho because I am going to be seeing deftones tonight!
