Step 1: ProBurn Advanced (Burn Calories) by PC Laboratories
Step 1 of our PC Laboratories 3 Step Fat Loss System is all about Burning Calories and making your weight loss journey easier. Whether it be improving your energy levels, reducing hunger or helping you avoid the “diet-brain”, ProBurn can help to make your weight loss journey easier to manage and your nutrition/training programs easier to stick to. ProBurn focuses on 4 different pathways to help you achieve your weight loss goal in a healthy and efficient way.
At its very core weight loss comes down to a simple equation of Calories In vs. Calories Out. A small increase in your Daily Metabolic Rate may seem minor but can make a huge difference. Let us explain, for example;
- Fiona is following a tailored nutrition and training program and is estimated to be in a 200 calorie deficit.
- Fiona Introduces ProBurn Advanced and starts burning an additional 100 calories per day by increasing her metabolism and thermogenesis through ProBurn.
- Plus thanks to ProBurn Fiona has more energy and focus during the day so she is naturally more active and exercising with more intensity, increasing her daily calorie burn by another 100 calories.
- Fiona has now successfully taken her calorie deficit from 200 calories daily to 400 calories daily which in effect has doubled her fat-burning potential for that day.
Increase Energy with No Crash!
During a calorie deficit, your body tends to conserve energy which can cause periods where you feel tired or lethargic. ProBurn contains a moderate amount of clinically trialled and proven ingredients that will help to increase your energy within 20-30 minutes. These ingredients include Caffeine, Hordenine and Synephrine, by introducing these stimulants ProBurn is able to deliver clean, steady energy, focus and motivation without overstimulation or the feeling of “the jitters”. Additionally, ProBurn includes Alpha GPC and Griffonia Simplicifolia Extract which work to support your natural Serotonin and Dopamine production which helps to eliminate crash.
The dosage protocol of ProBurn is to take 1 capsule in the morning on an empty stomach to kickstart your metabolism and give you energy in the morning. We recommend taking your second serve in the early afternoon or just before training. This will ensure you have energy all day long, and/or for your exercise so you can train more intensely. To ensure there is no disturbance to your sleeping patterns we recommend taking your second dose of ProBurn no later than 5 pm.
Appetite & Craving Control
A sustained calorie deficit for fat loss can have interesting impacts on our body’s signalling system and hormone levels. During your weight loss journey, you will likely feel hunger on a daily basis and may even experience cravings. Cravings during a calorie deficit are commonly for sweet, salty or carbohydrate-dense foods. These are foods that your body might want for the “fast energy” they can provide as well as the dopamine/serotonin hit they provide to the diet-depleted pleasure centres of your brain.
ProBurn includes Alpha GPC and Griffonia Simplicifolia Extract which support dopamine/serotonin production and will help to reduce cravings. Ingredients such as Caffeine and Capsacian have been scientifically shown to reduce hunger. ProBurn’s ingredients should make sticking to your calorie-controlled nutrition plan more achievable with a lower risk of over-eating or binging.
Improve Focus & Mood While Dieting
Along with its effects on your hunger levels and brain chemistry, being in a consistent calorie deficit can also create a “brain-fog”. A lack of concentration, poor memory or feeling flat are all common whilst dieting. ProBurn Advanced’s ingredients will help to clear brain-fog, improve your mood and boost cognitive function.
How to take ProBurn Advanced:
Take 1 capsule of ProBurn Advanced first thing in the morning on an empty stomach with 250-500ml of water. Take another capsule before lunch or training with 250-500ml of water, no later than 5pm. We recommend taking ProALCAR+ at the same time as your ProBurn. Avoid eating other foods or drinking a protein shake within 30 mins after consuming ProBurn. Drink at least 3 litres of water spread evenly throughout the day while using ProBurn Advanced.

That catechin-polyphenols are known to be capable of inhibiting catechol-O-methyltransferase (the enzyme that degrades norepinephrine) is a possible explanation for why the green tea extract is effective in stimulating thermogenesis by epigallocatechin gallate to augment and prolong sympathetic stimulation of thermogenesis.
