Exterminator recently got a bit of a facelift, as did a few of our other hardcore supplements. As we did with Executioner, we retained the best ingredients and added to it to create an even more powerful formula to help you continue to kill it in the gym
Today, we highlight one of the key ingredients in the new version of Exterminator -- ProGBB.
What is ProGBB?
Carnitine is a mainstay in fat loss supplements. The reason for this is that carnitine literally helps your body burn fat for fuel by acting as a biological “taxi” that delivers long-chain fatty acids into the cell so that they can be oxidized (“burned”) for energy. In case you weren’t aware, long-chain fatty acids can’t enter the cell on their own…they require the services of carnitine.
However, the effectiveness of carnitine is somewhat debatable. It largely depends on taking a big enough dose (2,000-3,000mg) and on using the right form.
FYI, regular L-Carnitine (the form most brands use) has terrible bioavailability and also requires the co-ingestion of a large bolus of carbohydrates (which may not be exactly in line with your diet goals or nutrition plan).
ProGBB (gamma-butyrobetaine) is a carnitine precursor that significantly increases carnitine production, leading it to be dubbed a form of “super carnitine.” GBB is highly bioavailable and requires a relatively low dose. This supports greater fat burning, which can help you shed those unwanted pounds.
In addition to ramping up endogenous carnitine production, GBB also produces a profound thermogenic effect, so don’t be surprised if you really feel the heat when taking a full serving of Exterminator, especially in combination with Paradoxine, alpha-yohimbine, and IsoSyn which are known to produce intense sweating and thermogenesis.
