Synephrine actually has a very long history of use. It is most commonly sold in a powdered ‘salt’ form as Synephrine HCL. The bitter orange plant is a native species to tropical Asia and eastern Africa. It has a long history of being used as a medicinal plant in throughout Asia as well as in the Amazon rainforest.
Traditionally it was used as a treatment for nausea, constipation, and indigestion. It was also used in the Mediterranean for the treatment of heart burn as well as to promote weight loss and decrease appetite. Oil extracts were sometimes applied to the skin, but it has mostly been used in its extract form.
Today synephrine is used mostly for its stimulant effects, and its capability to stimulate the metabolism and promote weight-loss. This wonderful substance appears to be highly effective at reducing appetite, and stimulating lipolysis (fat-burning).
The great thing about synephrine is that it appears to be able to increase metabolism rate and reduce appetite without affecting blood pressure or heart rate.
Most substances with stimulant effects will increase either heart-rate or blood pressure. The compound is also used as an anti-anxiety substance with mood-enhancing effects and has been shown to decrease symptoms of depression in animal studies.
Because synephrine is such a potent substance and is so powerful at stimulating the metabolism, it is not recommended to mix with other stimulants, and some 'stacks' have been known to cause severe side-effects in the past.
