Have you ever rolled out of bed and went straight to the gym? Or left for a morning walk before your normal cup of coffee and breakfast? Then you have done fasted cardio!
Keep on reading to see if fasted cardio is your new way of burning some calories!
What is Fasted Cardio?
In the world of bikini competitors and body builders, you may have heard someone say that they "need to wake up early and do their fasted cardio." But what purpose does fasted cardio serve and is there fat loss benefits?
The theory behind fasted cardio is that if you exercise or train on an empty stomach, your body should start to use stored fat for fuel, which essentially puts you in a fat burning state.
If you're training in a fasted state, it means that you are exercising when your glucose levels are depleted (our bodies main source of energy). Thus the body turns to fat for fuel instead.
Benefits of Fasted Cardio:
Plays a role in healthy fat loss effectiveness
Convenience in your daily schedule
Food sensitivity before cardio may prevent eating before a workout
Burns calories either way
If you practice intermittent fasting, you can fit in a fasted cardio session right before your first meal!
Does Fasted Cardio Enhance Weight Loss?
Calories in vs. calories out. Right? Burning more calories than you consume with food/drink is the key to weight loss. So how does fasted cardio play a role in weight loss?
Although there are some mixed studies, fasted cardio has been shown to improve weight loss. That said, the number of calories burned during a cardio session increases the amount of body fat that's burned for energy.
So is it more beneficial to do fasted cardio when looking to burn fat? Fasted cardio may be beneficial to your daily routine/lifestyle. So all in all, it's all about calories in vs calories out.
Types of fasted cardio:
Fasted cardio is any type of cardiorespiratory exercise just performed without food in your belly! (At least 3-4 hours after your last meal/snack)

What is MitoBurn®?
MitoBurn™ is L-BAIBA, which the muscles produce during exercise. It is an amino acid metabolite of L-valine, is triggered by the PGC-1α protein from exercising muscles.Known as an “exercise factor”, increased levels of L-BAIBA are associated with many of exercise’s numerous benefits. For example, L-BAIBA helps regulate metabolism, increase energy expenditure, manage fuel selection, and more. Up until now, the best way to increase levels of BAIBA was through intense exercise…but that all changes with MitoBurn, which is designed to help ignite the metabolic fire within!
BAIBA has been shown to initiate the “browning” of white adipose tissue, and brown adipose tissue has been shown to increase energy expenditure, improve insulin sensitivity, and help regulate weight management.
MitoBurn™ L-BAIBA is great for athletes trying to get the most out of their training, casually active individuals looking to support their healthy, active lifestyle, as well as those looking for healthy ways to support their efforts to get lean and fit.

What is InnoSlim®?
InnoSlim® is a stimulant-free ingredient composed of NLF-05 Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membranaceus to regulate blood sugar and lipid metabolism through the adiponectin and AMPK signaling pathway.
INNOSLIM®: A NOVEL AND SAFE SOLUTION TO METABOLIC CHALLENGES
InnoSlim® is a compound extracted from highly fractionated proprietary NLF-05 Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membranaceus using a proprietary pharmaceutical extraction technology. InnoSlim® is the only nutraceutical that has been demonstrated to increase adiponectin levels and AMPK activity, and lower glucose levels in healthy obese, and pre-diabetic hyperlipidemia human subjects.
NuLiv Science continues to invest in exploring the journey of how human health can be optimized through the supplementation of plant-based, unique phytocompounds. Outcomes of two recent human studies suggest InnoSlim® may support glucose and cholesterol health as well as weight management.*
Regulating healthy blood sugar and insulin levels is essential to metabolic health. InnoSlim® supports this by helping to decrease fasting blood glucose, glucose AUC, insulin, insulin resistance, triglycerides, and sdLDL-c levels to help maintain healthy glucose levels.
Insulin resistance increases hunger and leads to more food intake. InnoSlim® demonstrated to reduce insulin resistance and increase fatty acid breakdown suggesting it can be part of an effective weight management program when accompanied by lower caloric intake, increased physical activities, quality sleep, and absence of underlying hormonal imbalance and chronic inflammation.
InnoSlim® works at the cellular level to improve metabolic health by supporting an increase of adiponectin and the activation of AMPK. This addresses the root of metabolic health challenges by supporting lipid metabolism through the Adiponectin and AMPK signaling pathways.
Adiponectin and AMPK are two critical proteins in the human body when discussing metabolic health. Adiponectin is the hormone that helps to regulate glucose levels and fatty acid breakdown. It does this by activating a ‘spark plug’ for enzymes called AMPK, amongst others! As a result, AMPK, the body’s master switch, activates other enzymes that work together to break down food into usable energy and store excess glucose in muscle cells as glycogen. During this process one event triggers another, working to keep your blood sugar levels balanced.
Having low levels of adiponectin and decreased AMPK activity is linked to insulin resistance and high levels of fat in the blood. Even worse, Insulin resistance can increase hunger and lead to more food intake.3 Catching many individuals in a vicious cycle of attempted weight loss. Dieting and physical exercise only go so far as to help manage weight, especially when the underlying issue is on a cellular level.
