CONTROLLED LABS - REDuction™ FAQ
(Frequently Asked Questions)
by pt@controlledlabs.com

What is REDuction™ ?


REDuction

Fat Incineration Matrix

Key Attributes:

* Controlled release formula
* Energy and Focus
* Optimize metabolic rate
* 24/7 fatloss
* Fast results and muscle definition
* Control cravings even at night
* Improved sleeping patterns to enhance lean mass
* Ephedrine Free
* Yohimbe Free

We all know that supplements are not a replacement for nutrition and training, but if you are serious about taking your fatloss to the next level... the answer is REDuction.

The REDuction CONTROLLED RELEASE fat incineration matrix is precisely formulated with 24/7 fatloss in mind, containing potent thermogenics like Synephrine, Raspberry Ketones, and Cayenne fruit extract. The AM formula contains ingredients to not only CONTROL cravings, but also improve ENERGY, MOOD, and FOCUS during the day. The PM formula keeps your appetite under CONTROL, maximizes your metabolism overnight, and helps you sleep deeper to enhance lean mass.

It's time to get serious... it's time to get a REDuction

Where can I purchase REDuction™ and how much will it cost ?


Internet retailers will have the best prices (around $30)

How many tabs per box ?


120 (60 AM and 60 PM)

How many tabs per serving ?


2

How many servings per day ?


2 Servings

2 AM tabs in the morning
2 PM tabs in the evening


So... how many days will each bottle last ?


30

Is REDuction™ for men or women ?


Both

What are some of the major differences between Red Acid™ and REDuction™ ?


The major improvement is that the formula takes advantage of the entire day for fatloss, unlike previous products on the market. Many formulas have proved effective, but the side effects aren't always worth it. At CONTROLLED LABS, we listen carefully to our customers... and the result: REDuction

Does REDuction™ replace proper diet and cardio ?


No

Will REDuction™ help raise my metabolism / basal metabolic rate ?


Yes

What is my basal metabolic rate ?


Your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the energy used (measured in calories) by your body to perform basic functions, including internal energy expenditure, breathing, and body temperature. It is the number of calories your body would expend if you performed no physical activity throughout the day. Simply put... your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the rate at which your body burns calories while you rest. This is very important because we only have so much time for cardio each day.

BMR Calculator:
http://www.bmi-calculator.net/bmr-calculator/


I'm on a low-carb / carb-cycling diet... is REDuction™ good for me ?


REDuction™ is a great option for you !

Where can I learn more about the "Fatloss Basics ?"


Fatloss Basics Part 1 (http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showpost.php?p=4476014&postcount=3)

Fatloss Basics Part 4 (http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showpost.php?p=4476040&postcount=6)


What "basic" supplements do you recommend while taking REDuction™ ?

Creatine (pre and post-workout) such as Green MAGnitude / Green BULGE
Whey Protein (pre and post-workout)
Fish oil
Multivitamin
PLENTY of water


Where can I learn more about various REDuction™ stacks / combos ?


Controlled Labs stacking MATRIX:
http://www.controlledlabs.com/show.php?section=Stacking%20Info

Besides the "basic" supplements listed above, what "other" ergogenics, compounds, or supplements do you recommend to maximize my fatloss results while on REDuction™ ?


EAA /BCAA such as Purple WRAATH™ (during cardio / training)
Carnitine
Electrolytes (during cardio / training) such as GlycerGROW™


I'm on medication, should I take REDuction™ ?


Ask your doctor before taking REDuction™

I have a health condition, should I take REDuction™ ?


Ask your doctor before taking REDuction™

Why didn't Controlled Labs include Yohimbe / Yohimbine in REDuction™ ?


REDuction™ is a GREAT choice for those that either "don't respond" to Yohimbe, or respond negatively to Yohimbe

Is it necessary to cycle REDuction™ ?


We generally recommend that you cycle off REDuction™ every 4-8 weeks for at least 1-2 weeks

When starting REDuction™, should I "taper" up the dosage to assess my tolerance to REDuction™?


This is always a good idea, check the product label for details

What are some good indications that I'm losing fat while on REDuction™ ?


Mirror / Appearance
Measurements
Bodyfat caliper
Bodyweight


REDuction™ Formula Highlights


Simply put, what are Raspberry Ketones ?


Raspberry ketone 4-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-2-butanone is a compound of red raspberry that has been shown to increase norepinephrine-induced lipolysis significantly enhancing fat metabolism and preventing fat storage. It may have additional benefits as well, so more research is needed on this exciting compound.

Simply put, what is Bioperine ?


Bioperine is a patented ingredient that increases the bioavailability of many compounds, making REDuction™ very effective at a convenient 2 tab dosage

Simply put, what is Big Red™ cayenne fruit extract ?


The powerful thermogenic properties of Big Red™ cayenne fruit extract are due to capsaicin, and it may also improve circulation.

Simply put, what is Oleuropein (olive leaf extract) ?


A cutting phase can potentially weaken the immune system and make us more susceptible to illness. Oleuropein is a very strong immune booster and
should work to help stave off any incoming infection via stimulation of phagocytosis. In addition, it acts as an anti-microbial to help rid the body
of bad bacteria that can cause infection in the gut thereby not allowing food to be fully utilized. During a cut every ounce of food you ingest is precious and should be used to the fullest benefit.


Simply put, what is Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid ?


Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) is an important neurotransmitter that has been used for years as an ergogenic aid. When combined with the stimulants in our exclusive formula, users report a very unique effect that must be experienced to believe, due to enhanced neuron firing in the brain. Users report focused, calm, energy without the jitters often associated with stimulant products of the past. GABA has also been shown to boost post-workout growth hormone levels and enhance fat metabolism (more research is needed on the exact mechanism of action).


Simply put, what is Isobutyryl-thiamine disulfide ?


Isobutyryl-thiamine disulfide is a potent ergogenic that improves stamina, focus, and muscular performance during aerobic and anaerobic exercise.

Simply put, what is Phenylethylamine ?


A naturally occurring alkaloid that contributes to the energy, pleasure, and stimulating effects of REDuction. It has been shown to have some positive properties comparable to amphetamine, without producing tolerance or physical addiction.


Simply put, what is Taraxacum Officinale Extract


Anti-bloat ingredient that soothes the stomach and helps with a shredded look


Simply put, what is Theobromine ?


Theobromine is a mild, long lasting stimulant and mood enhancer that may also improve oxygen utilization to boost performance.

Simply put, what is Hordenine ?


Hordenine is a potent alkaloid that acts in synergy with the other compounds to help us oxidize fat for energy, increase peripheral blood flow, and promote a feeling of fullness between meals.

Simply put, what is Cordia Salicifolia ?


Cordia Salicifolia is a popular tree in brazil and the fruit from the tree is commonly used for its appetite suppressant, anti-viral, and soothing properties. Based on anecdotal feedback, it is believed to help prevent or reduce fatty deposits / cellulite and promote healthy skin.

I've read this FAQ completely, and I still have a question or concern.. what should I do ?

Looks like REDuction is fine with customs in Australia.

Haven't received the package yet as I wasn't home to receive it today, but FedEx return packages to BB.com if they don't clear customs (rather than seizing the offending articles).

Can't wait to try the PM pills! haha

It's a good idea to wait that long, because it gives the tablets enough time to be fully digested and absorbed

What kind of results, if any, could be expected from taking only the PM pills. I know it is recommended as an off-cycle to the full dosage, but I'm talking about without ever using the AM portion.

I notice in the stacks info it's suggested to pair with the Green (Creatine) products...I'm a newbie to this sort of thing (not just this forum) so bear with me...

1. Doesn't something like REDuction counteract Creatine, which has a purpose of size increases through water retention w/i muscles if I'm not mistaken?

2. Bulge is the version with caffeine, is it safe to take 2 supplements with stimulants like that?

As a little background on me, I was taking Hydroxycut Hardcore, researched my options after the recall, and went with REDuction. It came in the mail today (bodybuilding.com) and I start tomorrow. I returned my HH to GNC and got shaker bottles and fish oil as I did not like the options the store had for a fat loss product other than Animal Cuts (one of the other 2 I was considering besides REDuction; that and Lipo 6x Black), which was waaaay overpriced there.

Currently I am focusing on cutting and cardio as I'm a part of a fitness challenge at my gym where your score is based off the number of 30 min blocks of cardio you complete, but I figure after this ends (mid-June) I will be ready for some size focus, which is why I was considering creatine products. However, I figured to wait on that until I was done on fat loss products for my assumptions mentioned before. Any info appreciated.

1) no, it does not
2) bulge has no stimulants/caffeine, its fine to stack together

I WO at 5a, as well. I usually take Reduction after my WO, but I seperate the WF and the am dose of the Reduction by 3 to 4 hours. Make sure to take it 1/2 hour before a morning meal. That's how I work it into my schedule.

Your stack looks good, you might want throw in some BG pre and some Golden Gains post. BG helps with cutting. Golden Gains is a great PWO. Drink plenty of water throughout the day.

Hope this helps.

What time are you taking the pm pills? are you taking them on an empty stomach? Also, I would go more by how your clothes fit and not the scale.
