- THE KREW
LIT is back with a new look, new formula, and all new vibes! LIT is a high-powered thermogenic that’s formulated to reduce appetite, enhance your metabolism, boost energy levels, and increase focus.
LIT won’t do the work for you, but it will help combat the common side effects that come from dieting such as poor mood, increased appetite, low energy levels, fat loss plateaus, decreased metabolism, etc.
Before we break down LIT’s supplement facts panel, let’s cover what changed from V1 to V2 and why!
The original LIT featured a combination of:
LIT V2 contains a combination:
As you can see LIT V2 contains less ingredients than the original version; however, that’s because it contains higher amounts of each ingredient. Therefore, we decided to increase the dose of the ingredients that are the most effective and removed the ones that weren’t providing as much of a benefit.
Another thing you’ll notice is that LIT V2 has a four-capsule serving size whereas the original LIT had a two-capsule serving size. This change was simply due to the modified formula and instead of doing three capsules we decided to do four capsules because it allows users the option to take half a serving.
In terms of the formula changes, we swapped the L-Carnitine L-Tartrate for Acetyl-L-Carnitine because it has more nootropic benefits in addition to the fatty acid metabolism support. We increased the dose of choline bitartrate from 100 milligrams to 500 milligrams for more cognitive benefits. To round out the focus component, we added 500 milligrams of L-tyrosine which also helps with mood and overcoming stress.
The one ingredient we decreased was caffeine which went from 250 milligrams to 200 milligrams. This change was made because a lot of our consumers already consume caffeine from other things such as BAANG, Pre-Hype, coffee, etc.
The slight drop allows you to still enjoy your favorite caffeine-containing beverages along with LIT and not go above 400 milligrams of caffeine, which is the recommended amount per day for healthy adults. If you take two capsules instead of four capsules, you’re getting an even amount of 100 milligrams of caffeine.
Like the original LIT, we kept Capsimax®, a concentrated form of capsaicinoids from red chili peppers that increases lipolysis, boosts metabolism, promotes thermogenic activity, and curbs appetite.
To further support the effects from Capsimax® we added Advantra Z®, a citrus aurantium extract that’s extremely effective at reducing appetite. Last, but not least, is CaloriBurn™ a trademarked form of grains of paradise which was added to promote the browning of white adipose tissue.
LIT V2 uses veggie capsules so it’s easy on the stomach. LIT V2 is manufactured in a cGMP certified and FDA-registered manufacturing facility. LIT V2 is gluten-free, keto-friendly, diary-free, soy-free, and third-party tested for label claims. You can be assured that you’re getting exactly what you paid for!
Overall LIT V2 has better dosages, better ingredients, and a new eye-catching look! If you liked LIT in the past, we know you’re going to love LIT V2! Now that you know the difference between LIT and LIT V2, let’s break down the formula a little more in depth.
Here’s what one serving, or four veggie capsules, of LIT V2 contains:
As the name suggests, acetyl-L-carnitine is a combination of an acetyl group and L-carnitine. L-carnitine is naturally found in the body, and it plays an important role in fatty acid metabolism which is the process of burning fat for energy.
L-carnitine helps transport fatty acids into the mitochondria to be metabolized. Without L-carnitine present, your body is unable to burn fat for fuel. Having more L-carnitine available by supplementing with acetyl-L-carnitine is advantageous for fat loss.
Another benefit of acetyl-L-carnitine is that it helps with cognitive function because the acetyl group helps boost acetylcholine levels. Acetylcholine is a crucial neurotransmitter that carries out various functions. Other benefits of acetyl-L-carnitine include increased mood, less fatigue, and better performance.
Choline bitartrate is present in various pre-workouts and fat burners to help improve focus, mood, and mental clarity. Choline bitartrate consists of choline bound to two tartaric acids.
1Choline is an essential nutrient that plays an important role in supporting the integrity of a cell’s membrane, cell messaging, fat transportation as well as metabolism, DNA synthesis, and the central nervous system.
Choline bitartrate carries out its effects by increasing acetylcholine levels, especially in the brain. As mentioned above, acetylcholine is an essential neurotransmitter that is used for a variety of physiological functions such as muscle contractions and nerve impulses. Since dieting can cause brain fog, supplementing with choline bitartrate may help counteract that.
L-Tyrosine is a nonessential amino acid that’s naturally produced in the body by metabolizing phenylalanine. L-Tyrosine is a crucial component of various neurotransmitters including dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine.
Dopamine is a chemical that’s released in the brain and is known as the “feel good” hormone. Epinephrine and norepinephrine are responsible for your flight or flight response. So, they are released when you feel stressed.
As you diet your ability to replenish levels of epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine can be reduced. Supplementing with L-tyrosine may help improve performance and memory in stressful situations by helping restore levels of those neurotransmitters. Every serving of LIT has 500 milligrams of L-tyrosine to help with mood, memory, focus, and performance.
Caffeine anhydrous is a synthetic form of caffeine that’s fast-acting, extremely effective, and safe. Out of all the dietary ingredients on the market, caffeine is the most well-researched one.
Caffeine reliably increases perceived energy levels, lowers appetite, raises mental alertness, and enhances fat oxidation. Caffeine expresses its effects by blocking adenosine from binding to its receptors. Adenosine slows down neural activity, so when that’s inhibited it makes you feel more alert and awake.
It’s important to note that you can become tolerant to caffeine which means you no longer feel its effects. Therefore, it’s a good idea to cycle your caffeine intake. We recommend starting with two capsules of LIT and only increasing to four capsules as needed. This will set you up for success in the long-term.
Also, don’t consume more than 400 milligrams of caffeine per day and cut off your caffeine intake at least six hours prior to sleep. Getting a good night’s rest is crucial for health, well-being, recovery, performance, and fat loss!
The first of three trademarked and patented ingredients in LIT is Capsimax® from OmniActive. Capsimax® is a concentrated capsaicinoid extract that’s derived from red chili peppers. Capsimax® provides all the weight loss benefits without the gastrointestinal distress such as decreased appetite as well as increased lipolysis, thermogenesis, and resting energy expenditure.
Capsimax® utilizes omnibead technology, a controlled released encapsulating technology that delivers an effective amount of capsaicinoids without stomach upset. It’s important to note that no other capsicum extract has this encapsulation technology which is why they cause various side effects. In summary Capsimax® will help you burn more calories at rest, reduce your appetite throughout the day, and increase the breakdown of fat storage.
The second patented and trademarked ingredient in LIT is Advantra Z® from Innophos it is a self-affirmed GRAS citrus aurantium extract, also known as bitter orange. This ingredient is supported by several human clinical studies and has been shown to improve energy, increase thermogenesis, and boost performance without the side effects that are usually associated with other extracts.
The primary bioactive ingredient attributed to Advantra Z’s benefits is an alkaloid called synephrine. It seems that supplementing with synephrine leads to an increase in resting metabolic rate, energy expenditure, and weight loss. What’s more, Advantra Z® is a powerful appetite suppressant which is crucial for diet adherence.
The third and final patented and trademarked ingredient in LIT is CaloriBurn GP™ a high-quality grains of paradise, also known as Aframomum melegueta, extract from NNB Nutrition. CaloriBurn GP™ has been shown to activate brown adipose tissue (BAT) in humans.
Brown adipose tissue is responsible for thermogenesis, and it helps divert calories away from fat storage, white adipose tissue, to heat generation. In other words, when your body is cold, it taps into the brown adipose tissue to get warm.
The more brown adipose tissue you have, the more likely you are to have a healthy BMI, body composition, and weight. Therefore, the main benefits of using CaloriBurn GP™ are decreased body fat, better body composition, more heat generation, less fat storage, and enhanced metabolic rate.
There are several grains of paradise extracts on the market, but we decided to specifically use CaloriBurn GP™ because it contains adequate amounts of all bioactive metabolites including 6-paradol, 6-gingerol, and 6-shogaol. The combination of Capsimax®, Advantra Z®, and CaloriBurn GP™ will ensure that your body is in the best position to burn more fat.
As a dietary supplement, take two to four capsules 20-30 minutes before exercising. On non-training days, take two to four capsules in the morning or early afternoon.
Do not exceed four capsules in a 24-hour period. Do not use any other products that contain stimulants when taking LIT. Do not use within five to six hours before bed.
A phenomenal stack for body composition, performance, and overall health, is GRL PWR and LIT! You don’t have to take them at the same time but try doing GRL PWR in the morning with your first meal and LIT 20-30 minutes before a workout.
On non-training days, you can take LIT in the morning or early afternoon. We like to call this combo the Wonder Woman Stack because after a few weeks you will be feeling like a superhero!
If you want all-day energy, then the Lightning Stack is for you! This stack includes GRL PWR, LIT, and BAANG. GRL PWR should be taken daily to optimize your hormone levels.
LIT and BAANG can be taken as needed to boost your energy levels throughout the day. Many of our consumers like to take two to four capsules of LIT in the morning, and BAANG in the early afternoon to keep going strong.
As we mentioned in the beginning of this blog, LIT is a tool that is useful for weight loss, it will not do the work for you. Before you try LIT make sure you are on the right track with your diet, training, sleep, and hydration.
We formulated LIT in a way that will help you lose fat faster but if you are not in a caloric deficit, eating less calories than you burn, then you will never reach your body composition goals.
We truly believe that LIT is one of the best thermogenic capsules on the market, so we can’t wait for you to try the new formula. LIT will reliably boost your energy levels, reduce your appetite as well as cravings, and increase your metabolism.
