Fat Burning? Or Money Burning?
You need something that’s going to burn away unwanted fat in the quickest and safest way possible.
Luckily for you there are a few solid natural fat burners on the market that can help you achieve this goal, and achieve it fast.
Atomic Strength Nutrition’s option is their natural fat burner, Fire Starter. (Anyone remember that old prodigy song?!)
This product looks ok, using a few solid fat burning ingredients and amino acids to help jack up your metabolism.
The problem however is that each of these ingredients are tucked into a proprietary blend, meaning we can’t actually see the individual doses of them.
A blend like this is a common tactic by supplement companies to hide a product with cheaper and less effective ingredients. Very frustrating and something we avoid in all our top 3 supplements.
Atomic Strength Nutrition Fire Starter Core Ingredients
Any good fat burner should use a few b vitamins. This helps your body more effectively use energy from food and is essential. So that’s a good start for Fire Starter.
The problem comes with the ‘Firestarter Brew’ blend in this product. It’s 638mg of herbs and stimulants that need to be dosed EXACTLY right to get you the best results whilst you are burning away unwanted fat.
Let’s take a closer look at the major ingredients blend and see if they are going to get you RESULTS.
Chromium is vital in the optimisation of insulin, and insulin is incredibly important to a healthy metabolism as it helps in delivering nutrients to, and feeding, our cells.
A lot of people lack chromium in their diets so a supplementation can help to be part of a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
This is a well studied and proven ingredient, essential if you want to burn fat.
Caffeine is a staple supplement to modern day life. It is a highly effective stimulant in how it boosts the metabolism, mobilises fat to be used as energy and suppresses appetite.
As well as this it can boost the effects of other metabolism boosting products, such as green tea or bitter orange.
It has long been used by athletes, and non-athletes alike, in order to increase alertness, endurance and longevity.
This is essential for a fat burner. You need around 250mg-300mg dosed evenly through the day for best results.
This will aid with focus and also take the edge off stimulants, allowing the energy to be channeled and also keeping cortisol (stress hormone) levels lower.
You want 200mg+ for this to be truly effective.
Yohimbe has been shown to help increase power, inner strength and vitality. This is largely due to its effect upon the libido, both male and female.
It is also particularly useful for suppressing appetite. This effect combined with its ability to target stored fat makes it a commonly used supplement for fat loss.
The jury is still out on how effective it is however, with some studies showing unwanted side effects and limited benefits.
Atomic Strength Nutrition Fire Starter Dose
1-2 capsules per day. This isn’t a great way to use a fat burner as you generally need 3-4 capsules per day for best results.
This ensures you keep a good amount of the key ingredients working to help burn away that fat.
Fire Starter just falls a bit short of this and also, due to the proprietary blend, means you can’t actually see the individual amounts of ingredients you are supplementing which could lead to side effects.
Atomic Strength Nutrition Fire Starter Side Effects
Generally most of the ingredients in Fire Starter are completely natural, which means they are safe on their own to take.
However due to the hidden blend of stimulants and other ingredients you could potentially get some unwanted side effects.
To avoid this we always recommend buying a fat burner that shows a clear dosing structure and scientifically proven ingredients only.
Atomic Strength Nutrition Fire Starter Review Conclusion
This is an ok fat burner. But it’s not going to be anything groundbreaking.
You can’t see the individual doses of everything in Fire Starter, which means it could cause side effects or may not work at all.
Remember to get a fat burner that works you need all natural, scientifically proven ingredients at 3-4 capsules per day.
Whilst there are some benefits to Fire Starter, there are far better products out there.
