Why TLS Thermochrome is the best!
While there are other green coffee bean supplements for weight management on the market, TLS Thermochrome with Svetol® Green Coffee Bean is considered superior because it combines a great formula with high quality ingredients. It contains a unique blend of essential herbals, minerals and other ingredients, including Svetol® green coffee bean, guarana, green tea extract, yerba maté, ginger root, chromium, l-tyrosine and magnesium to support your weight management efforts. Svetol® is the most researched brand of green coffee bean extract on the market today, and its benefits are supported by nine studies. Svetol® has also been recognized for its health benefits by governmental Canadian health authorities.
TLS Thermochrome’s proprietary formula gives you the advantage because it helps the body metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins. This is crucial because metabolized carbohydrates, fats and proteins are used by the body to build substances it needs for energy, growth and general maintenance. TLS Thermochrome also assists with important processes within the body by helping to maintain proper muscle function and supporting healthy glucose metabolism.
TLS Thermochrome works especially well in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle that incorporates a kilojoule-reduced diet and regular physical activity for individuals involved in a weight management program.
Svetol®† Green Coffee Bean Extract
Svetol is a decaffeinated extract of green coffee bean. It has been researched to support weight and body fat management through unique mechanisms. Svetol is obtained from unroasted coffee beans of the Robusta variety and possesses a unique composition of chlorogenic acids, which are responsible for its effectiveness. The mechanism by which it works involves the inhibition of glucose-6-phosphatase, an important enzyme for producing glucose. Svetol may also help to reduce carbohydrate absorption and may contribute to weight management by promoting the use of fat as a source of energy. In other words, when the body does not have readily accessible glucose to use for energy, it then has to burn the stored fat for energy. Svetol’s extraction procedure and its unique mechanism of action set this ingredient apart from other green coffee bean products on the market.
Supported by nine studies, Svetol has beneficial effects on healthy weight management. It is the most researched brand of green coffee bean extract on the market today.

Guarana, also called Brazilian cocoa, is used to increase alertness, boost energy and to promote thermogenesis. As a dietary supplement, guarana acts as an energy booster, as it contains approximately twice the caffeine found in coffee beans (3-4% caffeine in guarana seeds vs. 1-2% in coffee beans). Guarana increases subjective energy levels and helps alleviate occasional fatigue.
L-Tyrosine is an amino acid found naturally in our bodies. Tyrosine’s main purpose is to support the formation of neurotransmitters such as dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine. Neurotransmitters are important because they carry “messages” from one nerve cell to another, thereby playing a vital role in muscle function. It is believed that the use of tyrosine can naturally relieve everyday symptoms of mental and physical fatigue.
Green Tea Leaf Extract
Green tea, or Camellia sinensis, contains several compounds often referred to as catechins or flavonols; the most prevalent of these being epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). These flavonols, especially EGCG, have been proven to increase thermogenesis, the process by which animals produce body heat through the burning of fatty acids.
Yerba Maté Leaf
Yerba maté is an herb native to South America. It is used worldwide as an body and mind energizer. Yerba maté is a source of caffeine and xanthines, which are alkaloids in the same family as caffeine. Yerba maté also contains potassium, magnesium and manganese. Research shows it can support the breakdown of sugars in the body. Yerba maté has been shown to promote alertness, mental energy and focus, and to help reduce mental and physical fatigue.
Chromium is a vital trace mineral that forms part of a compound in the body known as glucose tolerance factor (GTF), which may assist in stabilizing blood sugar and, also helps support normal glucose metabolism. It helps support cells in the normal intake of glucose and release of energy. Food sources of chromium include brewer’s yeast, whole grain cereals, broccoli, prunes, mushrooms, beer, spices, brown sugar, coffee, tea, beer, wine and meat products. Refined foods, fruits and vegetables contain smaller amounts of chromium.
Gingeris a shoot-like plant with a single purple-green flower that contains a thick root from which uses for this plant originate. It is native to coastal India, but it now grows and is harvested commonly in Jamaica, China, Africa, and the West Indies. The root is the source of ginger’s aroma, and is also the source of the spice. Ginger has been used for years as an aid for many gastrointestinal disturbances including indigestion, flatulence, and diarrhea. Its main health benefits include the alleviation of motion sickness and nausea. It has been used to help treat the pain from rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, and fighting inflammation. Ginger also acts as a heart tonic, promoting healthy functioning of the cardiovascular system via boosting the pumping action of the heart, prevention of clot formation, and reduction of cholesterol levels.
Magnesium is a component of the mineralized part of bone and is necessary for the metabolism of potassium and calcium in adults. It is also important for the mobilization of calcium, transporting it inside the cell for further utilization. It plays a key role in the functioning of muscle and nervous tissue. Magnesium is necessary for the synthesis of all proteins, nucleic acids, nucleotides, cyclic adenosine monophosphate, lipids and carbohydrates. Foods rich in magnesium include unpolished grains, nuts and green vegetables. Green leafy vegetables are potent sources of magnesium because of their chlorophyll content. Meats, starches, dairy products and refined and processed foods contain low amounts of magnesium. Recent research shows that many people’s diets are deficient in magnesium.

Losing weight while boosting energy
This is my favourite go to product for energy booster when I feel tired to do my workout (esp. now being a mother of 2 young kids). Every time I take it, I notice stable energy that is needed for me to do what I need to do without the energy crash afterward
I’m burning more than ever. It’s amazing Product.
I work up a sweat and it’s great
I never felt I needed to use a product before my workout until I started using thermochrome. It’s so good, I’ve never had better workouts- I get such a good sweat and I’m so certain I’m burning more than ever. It’s amazing
One of my favourite pre-workouts!
This product is my favourite out of the entire TLS line! I take it everytime before I go rock climbing to get that spike of energy that I need. If you're caffeine sensitive, start off with taking 1 pill as opposed to 3 and slowly add more depending on how much it affects you. Also make sure to drink lots of water!
