Metabolic Activation Formula (MAF) is a thermogenic formulation designed to improve weight loss by accelerating the body's metabolism and also improving the efficiency of energy-generating processes in the body. Increasing the metabolism is beneficial in weight loss, since the metabolism becomes sluggish in overweight and obese clients placed on low calorie diets. By increasing the metabolism, more weight is lost. Loss of lean mass normally occurs during a low calorie diet. Since the breakdown of stored fat is also increased, more of the weight loss comes from fat while muscle or lean mass is spared. This formula stimulates the burning and removal of fat from adipose tissue stores while sparing lean mass.

The root extract produces mild estrogenic effects and has been proven useful in treating symptoms of menopause, regulating menstruation, and relieving menstrual cramps.
Citrus Aurantium (Bitter Orange)
Contains alkaloids, which increase metabolism and speeds up the breakdown of stored fat. It also increases the uptake of amino acids into muscle and exerts mild hunger suppressant effects. Studies show that Citrus Aurantium is superior to ephedrine or Ma huang. Initial studies show there is no increase in blood pressure, heart rate, or central nervous system stimulation. The citrus alkaloids are thought to target fat cells more specifically.
