Reductup Men:

Cocoa: natural ingredient of Reductup Men

Cacao (Theobroma cocoa): seeds E.S in Reductup Men standardized to 6% theobromine

Cocoa: natural ingredient of Reductup MenThe cocoa plant is a South American plant in which fruits are present, among other things, purine alkaloids including theobromine (0.5-2.7%) and caffeine (0.7% approximately). The activity of theobromine is similar to that of caffeine as this also has a basis metilxantinica useful for improving psychomotor perfor-
and to improve the tone of humor, increase the plasma concentrations of dopamine and serotonin.

As for caffeine, its activity is accomplished particularly at the level of the enzyme phosphodiesterase, whose inhibition leads to more prolonged half-life of cyclic AMP.
Some studies have reported that many people in a state of depression using the chocolate to make the best mood. It has recently been discovered that the flavonoids present in cocoa beans are rich in antioxidants and cardioprotective able to prevent platelet aggregation and to stimulate the nitric oxide synthase, thus defending the organism from cerebrovascular diseases such as stroke, hemorrhage and thrombosis.

Main components of the cocoa

The main components of cocoa are purine alkaloids (theo-
bromine and caffeine), polyphenols and tannins (including oligomers proantocianidinici), biogenic amines (phenethyla-
mine, slap and tryptamine, serotonin).

Main activities of cocoa

The main activities of cocoa are: stimulant, nervine tonic, antioxidant, antiradical, energizing, invigorating, diuretic.

Therapeutic use of Cocoa

Cocoa has the following therapeutic uses: asthenia, physical and mental performance, emotional eating, pre-
venting cardiovascular disease. Pharmacological activity of cocoa

Pharmacological activity of cocoa

The scientific name Theobroma cacao has to do with a greek word meaning “Food of the Gods” and the name given to the plant from the Aztecs: cacahuatl. The renewed interest for the Cocoa moved from the role only hedonistic-functional to that of food phytotherapy preparation, due to the presence of some active ingredients of the plant complex.

The cocoa beans are a natural source of theobromine and caffeine, alkaloids belonging to a specific group of neuro tonic active at the level of the nervous system and called methylxanthines. They have a positive effect on mental application, the psychophysical readiness, muscle tone and with favorable results on adipose lipolytic tissue.

Cocoa: natural ingredient of Reductup MenCaffeine also provides an incre-
ase in thermogenesis, activity by which the energy liberated in the oxidation of nutrients is not imprisoned in the form of ATP but dispersed as heat and thereby increasing the energy consumption and facilitating the reduction of body weight.
Data received from experimental researches show that methylxanthines act as antagonists of the receptors’ adenosine. Similarly, fruit, vegetables and tea, cocoa beans are also a rich source of flavonoids who practice a remarkable effect of preventing against coronary heart disease.

The primary flavonoic fraction in Cocoa is represented by flavan-3-ols and oligomeric proanthocyanidins, which eliminate free radicals, blocking the cascade process and the anomalous aggregation of platelets that caused the composition of thrombi in blood vessels.
These substances would increase the presence of nitrogen oxide which promotes vasodilatation. Research conducted by Harvard University on individuals whose age was around 65 years, has shown that consumption of cocoa and chocolate reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease.
