Acacia Rigidula

Can someone at Biotest weigh in on Nutrex’s newest ingredient for Lipo-6X called Acacia Rigidula?

Here is Nutrex’s claim:

Acacia Rigidula is a rare, natural compound that consists of several different alkaloids (active constituents). These alkaloids provide a source of norepinephrine (a neurotransmitter in your brain). The most powerful alkaloid in Acacia Rigidula and most important one is Phenylethylamine.

Phenylethylamine is naturally found in chocolate and is responsible for its effects on mood, appetite and a sense of well being. Phenylethylamine is probably the cleanest stimulant known to man!!

It has a unique ability to stimulate the central nervous system, especially the pleasure sensing areas of the brain without causing the jitters or nervousness and induces a sense of good feeling.

Moreover and most importantly the Phenylethylamine found in Acacia Rigidula has the ability to strongly increase the metabolic rate by stimulating your thyroid gland and inducing a powerful thermogenic effect through the conversion of fats into heat.

Acacia Rigidula can truly be considered a breakthrough compound in the complex world of fat burning. This multi-functional ingredient is a major addition to an already powerful LIPO-6X formula. Remember, only Acacia Rigidula found in LIPO-6X (95% pure at a 75:1 ratio of actives) will provide a full spectrum of Phenylethylamine.[/quote}

Why not just use pure PEA?
