Overhung: You can buy just the Synephrine. The bottle says, "bitter orange," which is the source of the substance. I saw it at Wild Oats.

Yes, I used a product called Tight! which has the substance in there. I did lose a little weight, but I didn't stick with it and I didn't get palpitations, but since my resting heartbeat is only 36-38, I may not have noticed(I also don't drink coffee all day).

36-38 is really low. I saw this woman on discovery that was a deep water diver. You know where they don't take oxygen with them and she said when she gets to the depth where she turns around her hr is at like 15.

Meadows, you might be able to make millions on Discovery and swim with the fishies and sharks.

Just watch out for sting rays!

Mboss, :D It comes from all those years of running, maybe genetics too. Actually, I think pro-marathoners are ever lower!

Lance's resting HR is 32 - 34, so Meadows you may be well suited for the triathlon/cycling world if climbing ever loses its luster (which i doubt having come from the former passion and now obsessed w/ climbing). Of course Lance also has a VO2 max of 84 ml/min (nearly double the average person) and a max HR of 201 (also pretty heavy). I have a hard time believing a person can function 15 beats per minute, maybe in hibernation or after a good drunk, though i still doubt it.

reading back you've got to connect the deep diving portion of her post. being also a diver, I can attest to watching dive buddies train their breathing to slow their HR in order to consume less air (oxygen), couple that with some weird gas mixtures and it is possible to get HR's very low. 15 would be the slowest I've ever heard but could be possible.

Finding the limits of the human threshold always inspires me, david blaine attempted to slow his HR to stay underwater for 9 minutes...oh wait, he went about 7:30 (still impressed the hell out of me), he also stood on a 22" platform 90 feet off the deck for like 35 hours straight w/o food or water, then proceeded to free fall the 80 feet (78 to be exact) onto a 12' high pile of cardboard boxes, and suffered only a minor concussion (when is your brain getting slammed around and swelling to knock you out minor?). LIke i say, intelligent design...stupid people.
