Description
Karbolic™... period!

ALL serious athletes require fast, medium and slow acting carbohydrates before, during and after intense exercise or competition. For over 40 years, sports nutritionists have touted the benefits of carbohydrate intake to improve performance and recovery.

With ProSupps Karbolic™, we are far more interested in providing you with better results in the gym and on the field through research-backed technology suggested to deliver the highest level of efficacy and results. We partnered with Hong Kong Life Sciences Company Limited to develop a proprietary, nutrient partitioning, anti-oxidant ingredient that was specifically designed to meet the heightened metabolic demands of all types of serious athletes and to synergize specifically with carbohydrates to promote intra-cellular muscle volume and carbohydrate loading.* Karbolic™ is the first and ONLY dietary supplement to use Pterosport™, a scientifically designed extract that contains ingredients backed by more than ONE HUNDRED clinical and basic research studies... peer-reviewed studies that are published in prestigious journals done on real human subjects.
  • Pterosport™ is a scientifically proven anti-oxidant and carbohydrate-synthesizing technology. Pterosport™ is the first and only stilbene containing sport nutrition extract that contains all four of these important stilbenoids (resveratrol, pterostilbene, piceatannol, piceid.)
  • Contains not only large size carbohydrates, but also small and medium sized carbohydrates for a medium, short and almost instantly acting energizing effect!
  • Contains taurine and betaine in clinically validated dosages suggested to promote athletic performance in "real athletes"*
  • Contains important B-Vitamin enzyme co-factors scientifically surmised to support athletic performance, aid in post exercise recovery, assist in muscle-cell glycogenesis and storage, as well as ATP re-synthesis from ADP*
  • Contains an Electrolyte Complex (Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc) needed to during rigorous exercise for hydration.

Health Notes

Bitter Orange

Bitter Orange
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: 3 cups of tea daily, prepared with 1 to 2 grams of dried peel
Bitter orange has traditionally been used as a digestive aid.(more)
Insomnia
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Bitter orange has a history of use as a calming agent and to counteract insomnia.(more)
Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Bitter orange contains synephrine, which might promote weight loss. (more)
Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: 3 cups of tea daily, prepared with 1 to 2 grams of dried peel

Bitter herbs are thought to stimulate digestive function by increasing saliva production and promoting both stomach acid and digestive enzyme production.1 As a result, they are particularly used when there is low stomach acid but not in heartburn (where too much stomach acid could initially exacerbate the situation). These herbs literally taste bitter. Some examples of bitter herbs include greater celandine, wormwood, gentian,dandelion, blessed thistle, yarrow, devil's claw, bitter orange, bitter melon, juniper, andrographis, prickly ash, and centaury.2. Bitters are generally taken either by mixing 1-3 ml tincture into water and sipping slowly 10-30 minutes before eating, or by making tea, which is also sipped slowly before eating.

Very little published research is available on the traditional uses of bitter orange as a digestive aid and sedative. The German Commission E has approved the use of bitter orange for loss of appetite and dyspeptic ailments.3 One test tube study showed bitter orange to potently inhibit rotavirus (a cause of diarrhea in infants and young children).4 Bitter orange, in an herbal combination formula, reportedly normalized stool function and completely eased intestinal pain in 24 people with non-specific colitis and, again in an herbal combination formula, normalized stool function in another 32 people with constipation.5, 6

Insomnia
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Bitter orange has a history of use as a calming agent and to counteract insomnia. There is no clinical trial data to support its efficacy in this regard. The usual amount of tincture used is 2 to 3 ml at bedtime.1, 2

Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructionsAlthough historically used to stimulate appetite, bitter orange is frequently found in modern weight-loss formulas because synephrine is similar to the compound ephedrine, which is known to promote weight loss. In one study of 23 overweight adults, participants taking a daily intake of bitter orange (975 mg) combined with caffeine (525 mg) and St. John's wort (Hypericum perforatum, 900 mg) for six weeks lost significantly more body weight and fat than the control group.1 No adverse effects on heart rate or blood pressure were found. Bitter orange standardized to contain 4 to 6% synephrine had an anti-obesity effect in rats. However, the amount used to achieve this effect was accompanied by cardiovascular toxicity and mortality.2
