I am currently taking Jack3d and I was wondering if adding adding this stack pluswould be safe. I am trying to target the unwanted fat around my abs and my "love handles"?
You cannot spot reduce fat.
Building muscle (myohypertrophy) has very little to do with oxidative capabilities, in general (yes, muscle is directly related to metabolic activity typically of carbohydrates and protein, which is why I said in general). Triglycerides must be broken down from adipose tissue-lipolysis, then enters plasma and is continued to b-oxidation and eventually is converted to acetyl-coa and enters the TCA cycle in active skeletal muscles, not surrounding muscle (for simplicity). To increase lipid metabolism, one would need to increase capillary beds and mitochondria (where lipid oxidation occurs) leading to and within a muscle cell.
russy russ -
what about cortisol blockers, i.e. Lean Xtreme, Reduce XT - that have studied to be shown to reduce VAT and fat directly related to the abdominal area?
im not saying your wrong, but just rather an explanation to the above based on your stated opinion
There are many studies, you have to decipher which are more valid and credible than others.
Sometimes things can be over analyzed as well...
Fact: High amounts of A2-receptors exist in neck, stomach, lower back, love handles, chest.
Fact: Active A2-receptors inhibit lipolysis in said areas
Fact: Ingredients in ALPHA-T2 inactivate A2-receptors
Fact: Inactivation of A2-receptors allows more lipolysis to occur in said areas
