  • Activate the metabolic master switch with ActivAMP*

  • Helps to burn and reduce body fat*

  • Enhances energy and vitality

Introducing a new herbal extract that activates the body’s metabolic master switch to help burn fat for greater energy and vitality: ActivAMP AMP-K Stimulator from Swanson Ultra.* Scientists have found that many of the benefits of aerobic and anaerobic exercise stem from the activity of an enzyme known as 5’ adenosine monophophate-activated protein kinase, or AMP-k, often called the “metabolic master switch.” During exercise, physical stress on the muscles and bones triggers the up- regulation of a family of proteins known as sestrins, which in turn activate the AMP-k enzyme. When AMP-k is activated, it triggers a cascade of metabolic effects that influence fat burning.* The net result is improved muscular performance, reduced body fat and optimized metabolic activity.*

ActivAMP is a powerful herbal extract that activates the AMP-k enzyme, much like physical exercise does. It’s derived from Gynostemma pentaphyllum (also known as jiaogulan), an adaptogenic herb that has been used for centuries as a longevity tonic in the mountainous regions of southern China and northern Vietnam, where it is known as “the immortality herb.” Scientists have identified natural saponins in gynostemma known as damulins, which have been shown to strongly activate AMP-k in phytochemical studies.* In a double-blind trial involving 80 overweight individuals, subjects taking ActivAMP showed significant decreases in BMI, weight, body fat and abdominal body fat compared to subjects taking a placebo.* But the benefits of ActivAMP go beyond weight control; by activating AMP-k you can enjoy many of the metabolic advantages that could otherwise only be obtained through strenuous physical exercise.*

Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

ActivAMP AMP-K Stimulator is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Pleasant Surprise! I saw different brands of AMP-K Stimulator advertised and thought it might benefit me but it was so pricey. I checked to see if Swanson's carried it and they did... at less than half the price asked by other suppliers for the same dosage. I've been a Swanson customer for over 20 years; I trust their quality. I would recommend this supplement to anyone looking to increase their energy. I am very pleased with my results.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kick-starting metabolism I'd shut down a bit over a wet Seattle winter, these caps helped me get going again, even lost some belly fat. I also cut calories & walked a lot! I'll buy more...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Swanson needs to ship fresher stock Frequently, I get items that are over a year old. If I am getting them from the manufacturer I am hoping that I get fresher stock....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Promising I was not able to tell any difference with this product at first, then I realized about half way through the bottle that the capsules were hard. I started chewing them up, and that's when I got to experience the amazing power of this product! I was very surprised how strong and effective this is! I can't wait until Swanson has another big sale so I can afford to order some more of this. A week or 2 into chewing these up, I lost about 5 pounds without doing anything much different, I could really feel my metabolism activated! Very exciting!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did nothing If anything I gained a pound. Gave a little energy and no side effects but it was a waste of money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product I did not realize this could be used for weight loss so I might use it daily now. I have been using it just when when I need the extra boost as with hiking, for which is really works. I am 64.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome lets make this very clear... if your serious about exercise take this.. especially if you strength train with weights....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says When exercising, my muscles feel very refreshed. I would just recommend that anyone starting out with this product to ease into it, maybe not use the full daily recommended amount, until you get used to it. You have to keep in mind that even though you might not be excercising all that hard, your body will still require more protein and other nutrients, just as though you were. For best effect, rather than take an entire capsule at one time, I now open the capsule and pour out a portion into a spoon, and take it along with a meal. This helps me control the effect and improve my experience. For the right person, this can be a life changing herbal product with the benefits that are advertised.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disconnect My wife and I tried this product for 3 months and maybe our wiring is too old. No difference noted even though we have in January tried a solid diet exercise mix. Sorry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still Monitoring, but Has Possiblities The label should have a precaution because I find if I take it in the afternoon, it keeps me awake for hours after I go to bed. Taking it in the morning solved that problem. I haven't reached a final conclusion on this product yet, but it may have very positive possibilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I took around a week but I could feel my energy levels increase, Currently losing a half a pound a week,This makes me happy, One thought though, This product can effect glucose levels, I personally felt tired and weak in the beginning until I modified my diet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Natural Energy Master Booster This product does increase energy naturally with no jitters, excessive stimulation, tension, stress or crashing afterwards. It increases energy naturally, gently and safely. I found it works even better by taking one capsule of ActivAMP with one capsule of Swanson's Tart Cherry with water twice a day. A wonderful combo! Thank you Swanson for being at the cutting edge of the best natural supplements!!
