ANS Performance HIT: High Intensity Thermogenic

ANS HIT Thermogenic

After looking into ANS & their new product Ritual which is set to release early April, we thought it pertinent to go take a look at yet another impressive product by the company. HIT is the company’s thermogenic energy & weight loss support supplement.

Unfortunately with a very flooded market it is hard to determine a quality product amongst all the white noise of fat blasting this, & fat melting that which normally are just a bunch of cheap stimulants that trick you into thinking your burning fat because you can feel it working. However upon first glance it appears that ANS may have another exceptional product that somehow snuck under our radar. Take a gander below at the ingredient breakdown & you can see for yourself!

Schizandra Chinesis

Schizandra berries have been used traditionally as performance enhancers and as an Adaptogen. Lots of human evidence from many decades ago in Russia that cannot be accessed, and limited Western evidence. Appears to also reduce anxiety and cortisol.


Caffeine is a compound that is seen as ‘anti-sleep’, by mimicking and blocking a molecule that induces sleepiness known as adenosine. Also a potent stimulant and fat burner; these effects, alongside some others, fade with time.

Vitamin C

Essential to the Synthesis of Carnitine which is crucial for fatty acid mobilization. Essential antioxidant in humans as well. May reduce delayed onset muscle soreness.

B Vitamins

Water-soluble vitamins that are known to play critical roles in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. B Vitamins help support cellular metabolism and energy production.

There you have it folks, ANS HIT’s ingredients will definitely have an effect on thermogenesis & effectively increasing your resting metabolic rate. HIT can be used as an energy boost in the morning or taken as a preworkout to accelerate fatty acid mobilization & help burn more fat during exercise. We definitely recommend giving ANS a look if your looking to shed off the holiday ‘mass’ you cultivated in time for summer! cultivating_mass
