FMI Releases New Report on the Synephrine Market 2018-2028


Synephrine Market Outlook – Synephrine is the extract of Citrus aurantium that is used as a dietary supplement or as an ingredient in nutraceuticals for weight reduction. There are many health benefits of synephrine, but its consumption should be very less as adverse symptoms are observed in humans due to excessive consumption. Two different grades of synephrine are available in the market depending upon its end uses. The pharma grade synephrine is a pure form and is also very expensive. Synephrine is known to increase energy expenditure by increasing glucose uptake and facilitating the breakdown of fats.

There are no clinical studies about the effectiveness of synephrine as a weight loss agent, but this hasn’t reduced the sales of the supplements containing synephrine. The use of synephrine in food products is very limited. It is mostly present in a sports drink or in marmalades unknowingly. But its major use is in the dietary supplements and in nutraceutical powders that are used by people for obesity.

Ban on Ephedra Resulted in the Extensive Use of Synephrine in Dietary Supplements – Synephrine has become very popular among the manufacturers of dietary supplements which are specifically produced to curb obesity. It has been known to dispel bloating and result in the loss of appetite after its intake and thus it is one of the main ingredients in many of the dietary supplements. But synephrine gained recognition only after ephedra-containing supplements were banned in the year 2004 by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The supplements which were launched after the ephedra ban was termed as ‘ephedra-free’ and the main ingredient in these products was synephrine.

Synephrine has had a very negative light due to many research reports specifying the side effects due to the use of synephrine in humans. There is also an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases in the person consuming synephrine on a regular basis. But the synephrine alkaloid isomers, p-synephrine, and m-synephrine have different effects on the human body. The p-synephrine is known to reduce obesity but m-synephrine has the potential to increase blood pressure in humans. Thus, dietary supplements contain p-synephrine and not the other isomers.
