I'm hoping some others with scientific knowledge of ppar upregulation will chime in, but I've been doing some thinking about melting point.
I've noticed that while the hype was overwhelming, results haven't been quite what consumers expected. Some people were particularly upset with the alpha testing by DS, and then others seemed to not respond well to the beta version. This got me thinking, why?
If I'm correct, ppar alpha and beta upregulation leads to an increase in fatty acid oxidation. This should, providing the product has an effect on ppar alpha and/or beta, burn considerably more fat.
However, my understanding is also that increased fatty acid oxidation isn't nearly as effective without a general increase in lipolysis, or the release of fatty acids into the blood stream. This increase in general the result of a low carb diet that depletes glycogen stores, increased cardiovascular activity, and alpha and beta receptor stimulation.
Many of the people who used or are using melting point did not/are not doing cardio or any significance, or following a low carb diet. Nor are they utilizing a alpha/beta receptor agonist like ephedrine, clen, etc. I imagine that the lack of these ancillaries is, at least in part, due to the huge hype surrounding melting point as an "uncoupler" and something that would increase metabolic rate by 25-30%.
I really feel that the true value of this product could be seen when used in conjunction with a low carb diet and regular medium intensity cardio. With release of a great deal of fatty acids into the blood stream, melting point would be free to drastically increase the fatty acid oxidation with a result being a drastic reduction in adipose tissue.
What do you think?
