Most weight loss supplements focus on day time weight loss only, ignoring the fact that sleep is crucial to your dieting success. But poor quality sleep can sabotage yourweight loss efforts and undo all the good choices you make during the day.
When you’re sleep deprived, your body is unable to properly metabolise carbohydrates. This causes insulin production to increase, which means your body stores more fat. Cortisol, the stress hormone associated with fat gain, rises and levels of the hunger hormone ghrelin also increase. This activates the areas of your brain that make you want food, and shuts down the ones that make you feel full, leaving you hungry all the time.
By combining two formulas into one, comprehensive weight loss solution, Phen24 gives you the support you need both day and night to enjoy successful, long lasting weight loss.

- Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) (C8H11NO3)
Though all B vitamins are essential, Vitamin B6 is one of the most important. It plays a role in over 100 enzyme reactions in the body, primarily in the metabolism of important amino acids and proteins. Participates in the synthesis of hemoglobin and activates the SIRT gene also known as the gene of slenderness. Vitamin B6 ensures proper energy metabolism. It regulates the functioning of the endocrine system and maintains internal balance.

- Green Tea (Camellia Sinensis)
Fat can’t be burned until it’s broken down in your fat cells and moved to your bloodstream, but the compounds in green tea can boost your fat burning hormones.Norepinephrine is a chemical that instructs fat cells to break down fat. EGCG, the main antioxidant found in green tea, inhibits an enzyme responsible for breaking down norepinephrine. This results in an increase in norepinephrine, which can increase the amount of fat your body breaks down.It is even thought that caffeine and EGCG, both of which occur naturally in green tea, work together because caffeine works to the same effect as EGCG. Green tea extract stimulates the oxidation of fatty acids, supports thermogenesis of the body, and is a powerful antioxidant that protects against the negative effects of free radicals. Species: Camellia Sinensis, Family: Theaceae, EMA: Camelliae Sinensis Non Fermentatum Folium, TBSI ID: IH2B07A0, References: Weight Loss: SHIXIAN, Q.; VANCREY, B.; SHI, J.; KAKUDA, Y.; JIANG, Y. Green tea extract thermogenesis-induced weight loss by epigallocatechin gallate inhibition of Catechol-O-Methyltransferase. Journal of medicinal food, 2006, 9.4: 451-458. PMID:17201629.
- Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) (C6H8O6)
Like all 8 B vitamins, vitamin C aids in protein metabolism. This means it not only provides your body with necessary proteins, but does so while blocking the synthesis of proteins known to cause infection and inflammation. That means if you go to the gym often, vitamin C can make it easier for you to recover after training. Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid): Ascorbic Acid, L-Ascorbic Acid, L(+)-Ascorbic Acid, Vitamin C, PubChem CID: 54670067, CAS: 50-81-7, ChemIDplus: 50-81-7, ATC code: A11GA01, FDA Substance Registration System – Unique Ingredient Identifier: UNII: PQ6CK8PD0R, TBSI ID: IS2D5190, References: Weight Loss: JOHNSTON, Carol S.
