The leaves of the coca plant contain several alkaloids and Coca leaves have been chewed and consumed as tea for thousands of years in the high Andes. They are rich in many essential nutrients; Scientific studies have both confirmed that in their natural form, the leaves are completely safe and non-addictive.
Traditional medical uses of coca are foremost as a stimulant to overcome fatigue, hunger, and thirst. In Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador, indigenous people chew coca leaves for energy to work all day long without eating. The stimulant effects of Coca leaves have been used for centuries and we believe from our pilot studies they are extremely synergistic with caffeine, and our proprietary phenylethylamine alkaloids.
Coca alkaloids are unique in that they have the ability to cause release of catecholamines like norepinephrine and dopamine and serotonin. Serotonin is known for its ability to act as an appetite suppressant and to elevate your mood. Dopamine—a neurotransmitter that helps control the brain’s reward and pleasure centers and regulates movement and emotional responses—which the brain uses dopamine to tell the body when to stop eating.
Many people have a norepinephrine deficiency in the brain. Simply stated, these people are always hungry and never feel full. They crave starchy foods, are always depressed, feel exhausted, and have attention difficulties. Most dieters need to raise their levels of norepinephrine to lose weight. Ingredients like coca leaves that elevate norepinephrine is “easily the best tool we have.” Hi-Tech believes with the release of Lipodrene Elite we have turned the Diet & Energy category on its head. Hi-Tech has been at the forefront on the Diet & Energy for 20 years and we believe this is our crown jewel in the weight loss.
