DCP: Damage Control Protocol
VERY Basically, TTA is a PPAR agonist, which frees fatty acids to be metabolized. TTA has side two side effects - one good, one not so good.
Not so good is that a study shows TTA increases the activity of DGAT, which transfers acyl groups to glycerols, allowing fat to be redesposited. Salvia Miltiorrhiza inhibits this enzyme.
Good is the fact that TTA also increases the activity of Carnitine Palmitoyl Transferase, which carries fatty acids into the mitochondia to be burned. Propionyl-L-Carnitine (which has an affinity for the body's cells) readily exchanges itself for free carnitine. The Propionyl group is also cleaved and sent into the KREBS cycle (and is oxidized to succinate, I believe.) The increased activity also increases oxidation of pyruvate. Potassium Pyruvate is chosen to provide potassium, to help with cramping sometimes seen with TTA usage.
Raspberry Ketones are included because they are potent thermogenics...and we were able to include an effective dose without having to increase to 3 capsules.

Bludevil, awesome log, bro! If anybody asks about DCP in the future, I'll be sure to point them towards this thread. Congrats on the fat loss.
Thanks HL, although I think your thread on "DCP and other goodies" will display better results than what I had. I'm looking foward to see how it goes for youOriginally Posted by HairyLarry35
Ankle is getting better, actually played today with little pain. I went to the dr. and got a ankle brace and it seems to help alot. While I have the brace on I feel no pain, but when I take it off my ankle starts to throb. I pop and anti-infllamatory before my game and I'm good to go.Originally Posted by Leggo my Ego
Nice job on your log, looks pretty sweet. I'll definately keep a check on it. Oh, congrats on the upcoming marriage.
