You’ve been dieting for months, training for years, and meticulously tracking every single thing you do. Try as you might, the illustrious six-pack you’ve dreamt about night after night still eludes you.
You say to yourself, “I’m doing everything right. Calories are in check, training is on point, so where are my abs?!”
We’ve all experienced these frequent bouts of frustration when pursuing the physique holy grail that is the six-pack, and while most people will continue to say, “eat less, move more”, that’s not really what you need to do to get six pack abs.
The real key to getting a six pack boils down to three things:
- Controlling Insulin Levels
- Reducing Stress
- Maximizing Fat Burning
Normally, fat burners do little besides load you up with a bunch of crazy stimulants, making you “feel” like they’re working, but in actuality, they’re doing very little to help you get your vaunted six pack.
The key to eliminating those last few pounds comes in limiting stress, which reduces cortisol, and insulin production, both of which support fat storage. By reducing these two important factors, you create the ideal fat burning environment to evaporate those last few pounds!
How do you do limit stress and control insulin to maximize fat burning? With Steel Core!
What is Steel Core?
Steel Core is a revolutionary weight loss supplement scientifically formulated to help you get the shredded abs you’ve always wanted. Using a synergistic mix of ingredients that reduce fat storage and promote fat burning, Steel Core cranks up the intensity of your calorie burning for faster fat loss. Also included are several prominent cortisol and stress controlling agents, including KSM-66® Ashwagandha, that optimizes your hormonal levels for maximum fat loss.
Why is Steel Core Better?
Unlike other fat burners on the market that overload you with exotic, potentially dangerous, stimulants, leaving your feeling jittery and constantly “on edge”, Steel Core is stimulant free, including compounds that work naturally to increase thermogenesis, energy expenditure, and calorie burning. The end result is a fat burner that delivers actual results you can see in the mirror!
What’s in Steel Core?
L-Carnitine is an essential, naturally-occurring compound in the body that enhances your natural fat burning mechanisms by shuttling fatty acids into the mitochondria to be oxidized (“burned”) for energy. The reason Steel Core uses the L-Carnitine Fumarate form is that regular L-Carnitine isn’t all that useful for the average person unless they are chronically deficient in carnitine due to being vegan, vegetarian, or elderly. [1,2] Using this highly bioavailable form of carnitine promotes maximum fat burning and better energy production without the use of stimulants.
Morosil™ Sicilian Red Orange Fruit Extract (Citrus Sinensis)
Morosil™ is our trademarked extract of Moro Orange Juice. Packed with anthocyanins (including cyanidin-3-O-glucoside), hydroxycinnamic acids (caffeic, coumaric, ferulic, sinapic acid), flavone glycosides (narirutin, hesperidin) and ascorbic acid, Morosil™ helps prevent fat storage and ultimately enhance weight loss. Furthermore, cyanidin-3-0-glucoside also helps regulate blood glucose, which staves off cravings, and may even be useful for combating various symptoms associated with metabolic syndrome, including insulin resistance, inflammation, and oxidative stress. 
A staple of Ayurveda, Ashwagandha is an incredibly powerful adaptogen that helps reduce stress and cortisol levels. Chronic stress promotes fat storage and can break down muscle tissue, the exact opposite of what you want when trying to get a Steel Core.
Additionally, ashwagandha has also been shown to improve memory, boost testosterone, and improve athletic performance. [5,6] Steel Core uses the very best form of ashwagandha extract in KSM-66® which is backed by numerous clinical trials in humans demonstrating its extensive benefits.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Dubbed “the universal antioxidant”, alpha lipoic acid (ALA) exerts powerful antioxidant effects in the body, which enhances mitochondrial function and combats inflammation.  Moreover, alpha lipoic acid also helps drive glucose (carbs) into muscles and away from fat cells, making it a potent nutrient partitioning agent. This helps improve muscle repair and growth, reduce unwanted fat gain, and enhance energy production.
The premier grains of paradise extract on the market, Paradoxine has been shown in numerous research studies to increase thermogenesis and energy expenditure by “browning” fat.  In the body, there are two types of fat — white fat and brown fat.
White fat is the stored form of energy the body uses as a source of fuel when calorie intake is low. FYI, this is the kind of fat you’re trying to burn when losing weight. Brown fat is used to generate heat and maintain core temperature.
Paradoxine® helps “brown” white fat cells, making them burn calories instead of sitting around doing nothing but hurting your performance and body composition. [8,9] Browning fat increases metabolism and thermogenesis while decreasing visceral fat, especially in the lower abdomen, a notorious “trouble” spot for men and women.
CapsiAtra® is a patented extract of sweet peppers standardized for Dihydrocapsiate. Humans studies have shown that this potent alkaloid increases fat burning and energy expenditure, helping you burn an additional 50 calories per day.  The really interesting thing is that CapsiAtra® boosts your daily calorie burn without having to exercise or consume any form of stimulant!

L-Carnitine is an essential, non-toxic, natural nutrient that helps burn fat for fuel. This form of carnitine known as a highly stable form of carnitine, it donates l-carnitine to shuttle fatty acid and assist in transporting it across mitochondrial membranes into the mitochondria for energy production.
Key Benefits of L-Carnitine:Supports Weight ManagementHelps Convert Fat Into Energy with Proper ExerciseL-Carnitine transports fat into the mitochondria of cells where they are used as fuel to generate ATP.Promotes Increased Metabolism with Proper ExerciseIncreases EnduranceBoosts Recovery

Alpha Lipoic Acid
Known as The Universal Antioxidant, enhances mitochondrial function with a strong antioxidant effect, supporting the functions of L-Carnitine and promoting muscle cell nutrient intake and protein turnover. Alpha Lipoic Acid also helps shift glucose into muscles and away from fat cells, increasing energy and reducing stored fat.
Fat Loss and Hunger:Multiple Studies have shown that ALA stimulates the activation of an enzyme called 5’-adenosine monophosphate kinase (AMPK) in muscle and fat tissue. Increased AMPK activity helps to revitalize aging cells, promote mitochondrial production, optimize fat oxidation and inhibit multiple damaging factors associated with aging. ALA may also affect AMPK in the brain, inhibiting activation in the hypothalamus, thus suppressing appetite.
ALA, when consumed with Carbohydrates, will partition those carbohydrates to muscle tissue and away from fat tissue. The distribution of nutrients towards muscle and away from fat either maintains or increases lean muscle and decreases body fat.
Grain of Paradise Seed Extract (Aframum Melegueta ) (Paradoxine®)
Also known as Grains of Paradise, a spice belonging to the ginger family that stimulates brown adipose tissue, boosting metabolism and increasing thermogenesis while decreasing visceral fat in the lower abdomen.
How Does Paradoxine Work?Aframomum Melegueta Extract promotes the transformation of white adipose tissue into brown adipose tissue which helps bolster thermogenesis, promoting high energy output and causing significant weight loss.
White Adipose Tissue is the site of energy storage while Brown Adipose Tissue is responsible for cold and diet induced thermogenesis, which helps to control body-energy expenditure as well as body fat content.WAT increases the risk of diabetes, arthritis, hypertension and cancer while BAT can help keep your weight in a healthy range.Paradoxine® promotes WAT transformation into BAT, which can burn up to 5x more calories than any other type of body fat, resulting in higher work output and greater fat reduction. Furthermore, BAT can utilize blood glucose and lipids which yields better glucose metabolism and lipid levels independent of weight loss.
White Adipose Tissue (WAT) vs. Brown Adipose Tissue (BAT):
Promotes Faster MetabolismBoost Testosterone LevelsPromotes Neuroprotection and Enhanced Functional Capabilities within the Brain.Promotes Proper Central Nervous System Health and Improve your State of Mind.
