Somalyze is a non-stimulant based fat burner that, simultaneously, functions as a sleep aid. The following paragraphs describe the unique blend of ingredients in Somalyze and the complex mechanisms of how they function to metabolize fat while you sleep.

Usnic Acid
Inside all the cells of the body, ATP (adenosine triphosphate) serves as the fuel source that powers all daily activities. The majority of this ATP is produced when fats are oxidized (burnt up) inside the mitochondria (power station) of the muscle cell. Usnic acid is what�s known in the field of biochemistry as an uncoupling agent. Derived from a simple plant lichen, Usnic acid �uncouples� or disconnects the ATP-producing machinery in the cell and �releases� all the potential energy that was supposed to be used to produce ATP. Due to the energy and ATP loss (which is dissipated as heat), the muscle cells must dig into stored body fat stores and oxidize additional fats to ensure that optimal energy levels are maintained.

The following analogy should help explain how Usnic acid exerts its energy-wasting effect in the human body. Imagine someone putting a hole in the gas tank of your automobile. The car would still perform at maximal capacity however, it would require a significant amount of additional fuel to travel the same distance it had prior to the punctured tank. Likewise, Usnic acid creates temporary holes in the mitochondrial membranes which then result in the loss of valuable fuel (ATP) from the tank (muscle cell). To combat this energy loss, additional fatty acids must be oxidized to ensure optimal performance levels.

Individuals who consume 30-60mg of Usnic acid per day usually notice a slight increase in body temperature. This phenomenon is due to the fact that lost energy escapes from the body as heat. Remember, warmth is a good indicator that the Usnic acid is effectively wasting energy and thus burning fat.

Propionyl L-Carnitine
Inside the cells, L-carnitine transports long chain fats into the mitochondria (energy-producing chamber) where they are then oxidized into ATP. In theory, if we can increase the amount of L-carnitine within the muscle, we can theoretically increase the quantity of fatty acids that get oxidized. Until recently the problem has been that regular L-carnitine and even the more exotic acetyl-L-carnitine lacked the ability to penetrate skeletal muscle tissue (which is where most fat oxidation occurs).

On the other hand, Propionyl-L-carnitine, a relatively new version of L-carnitine, has important effects on skeletal and cardiac muscle. Back in 1990, a human study suggested that propionyl-L-carnitine could combat the destructive effects of low oxygen status and muscle fatigue in heart and skeletal muscle. More relevant to our discussion is the fact that propionyl-L-carnitine has a tremendous ability to penetrate skeletal muscle and thus facilitate the transport of long chain fatty acids into the mitochondria.

Gamma Aminobutyric Acid
GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid) is an amino acid-derived neurotransmitter (a chemical that transmits messages between nerve cells) that�s found predominantly in the hypothalamus of the brain. This is an important fact since the hypothalamus is located in a region of the brain (posterior lobe) that�s responsible for visceral functions such as sleep cycles, body temperature and the activity of the pituitary gland.

The pituitary gland is the master endocrine gland affecting all hormonal functions of the body. Numerous studies have shown that as GABA levels increase in this posterior region of the brain, plasma growth hormone (GH) levels also increase. This is significant for the athlete since GH dramatically mobilizes fat and rebuilds damaged muscle tissue.

GABA also has a slight relaxing or sedative effect on the body which makes it ideal for use at bedtime. Many people report improved sleep patterns and a well rested feeling upon arising. Remember, as your quality of sleep increases, your ability to recover from stress and strenuous exercise also increases. Recent research suggests that well-rested individuals have much higher levels of appetite-suppressing leptins in the body. Therefore, the more you sleep, the less youll feel like eating.

Aside from the positive effects of burning stored body fat and getting a restful night sleep, individuals may experience some of GABAs other unique qualities. Some people report a skin surface tingling sensation for a few minutes after taking GABA. This is not uncommon and can be likened to a niacin flush. Some also report a slight shortness of breath for a few minutes after taking GABA. This also is not uncommon and its nothing that is of serious concern.

The pineal gland (located in the brain) synthesizes and secretes the hormone, melatonin, a structurally simple hormone that communicates information about environmental lighting to various parts of the body and then establishes specific circadian rhythms that inform the body whether it�s day or night. This light-transducing ability of the pineal gland has led some to call the pineal gland the third eye.

Normally, in the body, the timing of melatonin secretion is controlled by neural pathways that run from the retina of the eye to the hypothalamus and from the hypothalamus to the pineal gland. Interestingly, it�s the suprachiasmatic nucleus of the hypothalamus that controls bodily circadian cycles such as core body temperature, sleepiness, and melatonin secretion.

Melatonin preserves mitochondrial homeostasis, reduces free radical generation, and maintains ATP synthesis by stimulating electron flow through complex I and IV of the electron transport chain, even in the presence of uncoupling agents such as Usnic Acid and DNP.

When taken in supplement form, melatonin appears to be remarkably safe. Because of this fact, it�s been used for years.

Once again, a restful night sleep significantly increases the body�s ability to repair itself and more sleep translates to less hunger.

Phosphatydylcholine (PC) and Phosphatidylethanolamine (PE)
Phosphatidylcholine and Phosphatidylethanolamine have been shown to reduce elevations of stress hormones such as ACTH that is associated with strenuous exercise.
