If the marketing is anything to go by we will all have photo shopped six packs that strangely glisten when we lift up our shirts, I can assure you I haven’t been sweating either.
This look all fairly inoffensive and there’s a host of badges reassuring us that the company has someone who is at least able to use the copy and paste tool.
Caffeine – It stimulates the central nervous system (CNS), heart, muscles, and the centers that control blood pressure to give you an extra boost and hit that PB. This is found in Instant Knockout which we massively rate.
L-Carnitine Tartrate – Supplementation of L-carnitine does not burn fat unless the individual is deficient in L-carnitine.
Capsaicin – The ‘chilli’ in chilli peppers, has thermogenic effects which raise the metabolism to burn more calories.
Yohimbe – Related to Yohimbine, Yohimbe is a powerful stimulant and used to increase fat loss as well as assist with erectile dysfunction.
Synephrine – This increases fat oxidation rate whilst reducing carbohydrate oxidation rate during low to moderate exercise.
Garcinia Cambogia – It appears to block an enzyme called citrate lyase, which your body uses to make fat. Actual weight loss results aren’t impressive, nor conclusive.
Chromium – This helps to move blood sugar (glucose) from the bloodstream into the cells to be used as energy and to turn fats, carbohydrates, and proteins into energy. This is found in the #1 fatburner on the market.
Rapsberry Ketones – Proven to provide no benefit in the fat burning process. After clever marketing ploys (via Dr Oz) they broke into the supplement industry but have provided no real benefits.
Additionally, Raspberry ketones supplements can no longer be sold legally in the UK. In 2014, the Food Standards Agency ruled that raspberry ketones were an unauthorised ‘novel food’. A damning verdict if I have ever heard one!
This probably because the only research on the effect of raspberry ketones on fat are a handful of animal studies. The studies were done over the last 10 to 15 years. Researchers looked at the effect of raspberry ketones on rats, mice and rabbits
White Willow Extract – Some studies show willow is as effective as aspirin for reducing pain and inflammation.
Theobromine – Like most alkaloids, theobromine has a range of effects on the body. Theobromine has some similar effects to caffeine.
Green Tea Extract – Clinical studies suggest that green tea extract may boost metabolism and help burn fat. One study found that the combination of green tea and caffeine improved weight loss and maintenance in people who were overweight and moderately obese. Some researchers think that substances in green tea known as catechins are responsible for the herb’s fat-burning effect.
C. Canephora Robusta (Green Coffee Extract) – Evidence from research has indicated that the consumption of caffeinated coffee can lead to some reductions in long-term weight gain, an effect which is likely to be due to the known thermogenic effects of caffeine intake.
Coleus forskohlii – Forskolin is a chemical found in the roots of the plant Plectranthus barbatus. This plant has been used since ancient times to treat heart disorders such as high blood pressure and chest pain (angina), as well as respiratory disorders such as asthma. Somewhat effective in reducing fat mass in obese and overweight persons.
Black Pepper Extract – Black Pepper is a source of piperine, a molecule that does not do much on its own but can inhibit enzymes that would attack other molecules. Due to this, it is ingested alongside some supplements to increase their absorption rates.
Mustard – They have not divulged if it is black or white mustard seeds. Either way, there’s no evidence anything that people claim either mustard seed to do works.
3 pills 3 times daily. That is a massive amount of pills that you are no doubt going to forget to take. Plus there’s only 120 pills in a bottle.
Following the dosing procedure of 9 pills per day you will get a massive 4275mg per day! That’s massive.
7 solid performing ingredients available.
Three servings per day gives you 13 days (less than 2 weeks) in a bottle of 120 pills.
Less than half of the ingredients are effective (7 out of 15).
Proprietary blend; this means we have no idea to the amount of each ingredient present in that blend of 1425mg. The cheapest ingredients may make up 1424mg with the remaining just having trace amounts.
Ingredients such as Raspberry Ketones are just criminal to be included.
Quite expensive with a RRP of $59.97
My Review Conclusion:
The biggest concern about this product is the proprietary blend, it is all well and good having 7 good ingredients present but if they are only available in trace or a minimal amount what is the point? It will not be effective at all even if it looks okay on the bottle.
The absurd amount of pills to take will become confusing and people will miss doses, plus only having a bottle last less than 2 weeks will become expensive with a RRP of $59.97 That’s nearly $120 per month.
Head elsewhere for an effective supplement.
