Octopamine - Glossary


A biogenic amine and constituent of Citrus aurantium (bitter orange). Octopamine is promoted as a fat loss agent, although there is only limited animal (and NO human) data to support this.  Any effects on fat loss are likely to be weak, as its oral bioavailability is low.

See David Tolson’s article, “Octopamine Science” for more information.
