What is Theorbromine?
has been used for more than a century as a stimulant, diuretic, and vasodilator, and offers a number of benefits when taken as part of a balanced diet. Theobromine is a natural extract of cocoa and over sixty species of plant. But it is most concentrated in the cocoa bean. Theobromine has a bitter taste, and is the main ingredient in chocolate. In supplemental form theobromine is a white powder.
Theorbromine is also known as Riddospas, Riddovydrin, Santheose, Seominal, Theobrominum, Theoguardenal, and Theominal.
Why take it as a supplement:
Theorbromine has been credited with the revivifying effect of chocolate, as well as being described as a mild aphrodisiac. In order to get full benefits from taking Theobromine, it needs to be consumed as a supplement .
In a purer form than it is found in chocolate, Theobromine also has a fairly strong diuretic effect, and as such can be safely used in order to reduce levels of water in the body to lose weight and reduce bloating for body builders who want to get ripped before a competitions.
There are benefits for people of all ages from taking Theobromine, as a supplement, and it allows you to enjoy all the energy boosting and positive mental aspects of eating chocolate with none of the high calorie and high fat drawbacks.
Defference between caffeine & Theobromine:
Unlike caffeine, theobromine has three methyl groups instead of two, and the presence of an additional methyl group slows the clearance of theobromine from the body. Thus, theobromine is a longer acting substance than caffeine.
Although theobromine is related to caffeine and exerts similar effects, theobromine does not affect the body through central nervous system stimulation. Instead, it induces muscular relaxation of the smooth muscle tissue.
However, the presence of an additional methyl group increases its half-life and slows system clearance - thus making its effects longer lasting.
Benifits & Uses:
Perhaps the best known effect of Theobromine is as a vasodilator, and it is regularly prescribed by doctors in order to relieve the symptoms of angina pectoris. It works by acting on the nerves in the veins, and causing them to relax in order to allow more blood to flow. For this reason, combined with its mild stimulating effect, Theobromine offers benefits to endurance athletes, and will allow them to work at a high intensity for much longer than otherwise.
Theobromine is a common ingredient in over-the-counter energy enhancing nutritional supplements and over-the-counter weight-loss products.
People looking for more energy can benefit from theobromine supplementation, as can people looking to lose weight and improve overall health.
There is no bodily requirement for theobromine and thus no deficiencies exist.
Please be careful when dosing Theobromine as it is a potent powder and can cause bad side-effects when taken well above the recommended amount. It is recommended not to consume more than 500mg (We recommended using digital scales) in one serving.
As a dietary supplement consume 500 mg one to two times daily.
Theobromine affects the kidneys because, like caffeine, it is a diuretic. It helps to shed extra cellular water and in this way affects the kidneys and renal system. Clinical research has not found any evidence of renal or kidney damage when theobromine is used sparingly and within reason.
Because of a long half-life, theobromine is toxic in small doses for dogs and cats. Large doses are required for toxicity in humans.
** Consultation with a physician is recommended prior to supplementation.
No side effects were noted in literature when theobromine was taken in reasonable amounts by persons free of medical complication.
