I tell you what I've just stumbled onto your podcast in the last couple off days. I've just listened to the Rugrats one and...
The Product Range
Are you tired of dieting? Are you tired of popping an endless assortment of pills and powders only to have stubborn areas of unsightly subcutaneous fat that you just can’t budge? We all know you can’t spot reduce fat through exercise – doing crunches isn’t going to lose that spare tyre. Tablets and powders that are taken orally can’t specifically target the abs, hips or thighs. The body loses fat from where IT chooses, not you!
What if there was a new product applied to the skin that actually worked? A body-shaping serum that has changed the old paradigm and gives you the power to improve your appearance by firming and toning your body; SUBCUT from ATP Science has done just that.
SUBCUT targets unsightly Subcutaneous fat (SF) specifically, which is the largest proportion of fat in the body. This is the fat you can see hanging around your waist, butt, legs and thighs and is difficult to shift with diet and exercise alone. The other type of fat (visceral fat) is a type of fat that is stored around your organs and is easier to shift with exercise and diet because it has a better blood circulation.
What will happen if you apply SUBCUT to your Subcutaneous fat lumps and pockets?
Take control. Force those stubborn spots, which have been resistant to change, TO CHANGE
• Mobilise fat from Subcutaneous fat storage sites
• Improve muscle definition
• Cut up and get shredded
• While using oral fat burners to target visceral fat and enhance metabolism. SUBCUT can be used to liberate fat into blood stream from isolated compartments directly under the skin
• Enhanced transdermal absorption
• SUBCUT body shaping serum is used as a secret weapon by bodybuilders, physique and fitness models for pre-competition sculpting
• Improves the appearance of regional fat deposits in men and women
• Renews and regenerates the dermal connective tissue
• Tones and increases the firmness of the skin and reduces the appearance of cellulite
• Hypo-allergenic, anti-inflammatory and antihistamine for sensitive skin
• Increases antioxidant levels protecting collagen and elastin from degrading prematurely
• SUBCUT body shaping serum is formulated to tighten, smooth and firm areas of the body
What are the ingredients of SUBCUT?
SUBCUT is a revolutionary product; researched, developed and clinically trialled by our head scientist for over 20 years. SUBCUT contains powerful proven ingredients that were chosen for their transdermal penetration and fat burning properties from researching published medical journals, white papers, clinical and university studies and in house trails to perfect the fat burning properties.
Coleus (Coleus forskohlii)
The active ingredient forskolin works like thyroid hormones on your stubborn fat deposits and directly increases cAMP, which aids in fat breakdown.
Guarana (Paulinia cupana)
containing active ingredients methylxanthines, xanthine alkaloids include theophylline, theobromine and caffeine, catechins and epicatechins) enhances the effects of forskolin as a beta adrenoceptors agonist that also enhances cAMP production and combined with its ability to be the most effective phosphodiesterase inhibitor it also preserves the cAMP to maximise the forskolin activity.
Silybin from Japanese thistle (Cirsium oligophyllum)
up regulates thermogenic uncoupling proteins and also stimulates beta adrenoceptors thereby enhancing the lipolysis promoting effects of catecholamines. One study on rats showed a mean reduction of regional subcutaneous fat stores by 23.2% in 7 days. Its effects are enhanced when combined with forskolin and caffeine. It also prevents fat gain by inhibiting generation of new fat cells (adipogenesis).1
Du Zhong (Eucommia ulmoides Oliv)
powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant added to modulate “adipokines”. Adipokines are chemicals made and released from fat cells that can contribute to their stubborn nature and resistance to change.
Black Pepper (Piper nigrum)
is a permeation enhancer enhancing percutaneous absorption of the active ingredients into subcutaneous lipid bilayers. It also stimulates microcirculation and induces a potent thermogenic effect.
Rosehip Oil (Rosa canina)
is a potent permeation enhancer to improve transdermal absorption of active ingredients. Rosehip oil also improves skin elasticity to aid skin tightening and reducing the appearance of stretch marks.
When is the best time to use SUBCUT?
- Massage SUBCUT serum into regional fatty deposits; most commonly located on the abdomen, buttocks, thighs and the backs of the arms
- Apply the serum from 1 to 3 times daily. Best used before exercise, and used every day
- after morning and again in evening after showering.
Why not just take an oral fat burning product?
Subcutaneous Fat (SF) is resistant to oral fat burners
Oral delivery of fat burning agents is inefficient and often ineffective for the following reasons.
SF is resistant to hormonal and neurotransmitter manipulation SF is often resistant to diet and exercise and manipulation of hormones and neurotransmitters.
Gut damage and irritation and oral tolerance
After oral ingestion of supplements, they must first be digested and absorbed via the GIT. Ingredients, which mimic or are agonists to thyroid and adrenoceptors can often cause indigestion, diarrhoea and gut pain. Therefore, the acceptable dose is often governed by gut sensitivity and oral tolerance as opposed to systemic pharmacology.
First pass metabolism
After the active ingredients have been absorbed from the gut, they undergo first pass metabolism. This means the liver can alter or eliminate a certain percentage of the active ingredients prior to releasing into the blood stream to be distributed evenly throughout the body.
Poor delivery to SF via peripheral circulation
SF has a very poor blood supply compared to Visceral Fat (VF). SF is often cold to touch and appears encapsulated and isolated from the rest of the body. Therefore, only a small amount of any active ingredient can access SF. VF is more vascular and has an extensive and efficient blood supply that links directly to the liver via the portal vein and thus will be the first fat burnt during exercise.
Get targeted fat burning
There are a number of natural ingredients that are found in nature that aid in fat burning. ATP Science has found that these ingredients are best delivered to the site they are needed and not taking them orally and hoping for the best. SUBCUT works by directly delivering these active ingredients in a concentrated, bioavailable form right on those stubborn, unsightly and frankly annoying fat deposits most of us have.

Subcut and Block E3 are both body shaping serums; however they have very different modes of action.
Subcut is a fat mobiliser. It works by forcing fat to be released from storage in subcutaneous fatty tissue thereby allowing the fat to be burnt as a source of fuel. Subcut works on any area with obvious subcutaneous fatty tissue storage sites.
Block E3 is an estrogen blocker. Estrogen can inhibit fat burning and lock up fat in subcutaneous fatty tissue storage sites. Block E3 works specifically on estrogen dominant fatty tissue sites. (Refer to the diagram here on estrogen fat storage sites):
Subcut starts absorbing within a few minutes. Within the first 10 days you may notice changes to the local subcutaneous tissue. Take accurate measurements using tape measure and ideally measure skin folds with callipers before commencing Subcut and you will notice changes to these objective measurements within the first 10 days.
Before your workouts and after showers.
Yes. But we recommend applying Subcut at least 20min prior to entering the sauna.
