VITAMIN C INCREASES WEIGHT LOSS BY 39%.
What a shock! I've known for 20 years that vitamin C helps muscle growth and recovery, and makes muscles rock hard. I read when I was 13/14 that taking 1-2000mg a day plus a healthy muscle building eating plan decreases the chance of most cancers by 70%. I'm not a bodybuilder, but its been known by the profs. that Vit C is the dogs bollocks. Vit C massively increases recovery and add plenty of other antioxidants, can prevent soreness and injuries.
It comes as no surprise that Vit C helps increase fat loss. (NB It does that anyway by ridding excess bile and poorly digested food from the intestines (that's what the wind is all about). As AA is responsible directly and indirectly for around 12,000 processes in the human body (most of them then,)
and thus makes everything else work better, including how well ultimately the food you eat performs in helping (or hindering) the metabolism.
So bringing the well known Amino Acid fat burners into the mix (plus the essential aminos) and the body's muscles use and burn glycogen much better with plenty of AA running around the veins.
I don't actually go to the gym, just swim alot. However, in the last 2 years of gradually increasing my AA amounts, I've gained about 10lbs of solid muscle and now rarely get any sort of infection. I've never been in better shape and my girlfriend loves it! I've persuaded her to take 3000mg through the day of time release AA, plus iron,Vit E, and A-Z multi and garlic Caps. She was showing signs of AA deficiency(as a nurse, she seems to knock legs,knees and elbows and the subsequent bruising was over the top). Easy bruising is a classic sign of AA defcy.
I'd say (and other people have agreed) that AA is like taking a weak anabolic steroid, without any side effects!
