But, what’s goes into each capsule that makes it such a strong product? Is it going to work when it comes to revealing your abs?
Let’s take a closer look and find out…
Ballistic Labs Ammo Fat Burner Core Ingredients
So what bullets can we expect to find in the fat burning Ammo of Ballistic labs fat burner??
The blend of ingredients looks fairly interesting, with some ingredients that have been completely proven to work and others that may prove less effective.
Generally, the dose seems ok, given the fact you are taking 2 capsules, twice daily.
From the off though, we can see there are better blends out there for your money.
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.
Guarana is an incredibly effective stimulant. Its seeds contain more than double the caffeine found in coffee seeds.
Guarana contains 2-4.5% caffeine in its seed, whereas coffee only contains 1-2%.
Due to its high content of caffeine it is proficient in boosting the metabolism and increasing mental alertness.
Guarana can cause side effects due to it’s caffeine content and shouldn’t be mixed with other stimulants.
Green Tea is very popular amongst health and fitness enthusiasts in recent times. Especially as it has been found that when combined with caffeine, it can boost your metabolism far beyond what caffeine can do alone.
Studies have shown that it can increase your metabolism to the point of burning an extra 200 calories a day without added exercise. 500mg of Green tea is perfect in a fat burner.
Chemically similar to the compound Synephrine (found in Citrus Aurantium), it is believed to help fat loss. Currently there is no clinical evidence to suggest that it can reduce fat in humans.
This ingredient is the product of clever marketing and should be avoided if you want a fat burner that works.
L- Tyrosine is important for neuromuscular function. It has been shown to effect mood, satiety, stress response, mental function, and even sex drive.
It is a non-essential amino acid which is synthesised within the body from the amino acid phenylalanine.
It also has a major role in producing melanin in the body and this is imperative for defending the body against ultraviolet light.
As another amino acid, L-Tyrosine benefits from higher doses. (500mg+)
Cayenne Pepper is a species of pepper native to the Americas. It is a key element in various cuisines but is now often used as a supplement.
Cayenne Pepper contains capsaicin which is known for its “warming effect.” It is known for its positive effects on healthy blood circulation throughout the body. This ingredient has been proven to burn calories in fat burners. 100mg through the day is an ideal amount.
Ballistic Labs Ammo Fat Burner Dose
You get a full 4 capsules per day from Ballistic Labs Ammo, which is a good size serving to keep your body utilising the ingredients through the day.
The problem though, is that you are taking 2 capsules at once. Which could be quite heavy on stimulants for some people and even lead to energy crashes after the last serving.
Ingredients wise, each ingredient in Ballistic Labs Ammo Fat Burner is dosed pretty well.
Ballistic Labs Ammo Fat Burner Side Effects
You may experience some side effects from the combination of Guarana and Caffeine.
This could be minor things like energy crashes in the afternoon but also has the potential to be something slightly more sinister like headaches and nausea if you have a low tolerance.
Avoiding side effects is important when choosing a fat burner, as it means you’ll have better success in the long run.
Ballistic Labs Ammo Fat Burner Review Conclusion
This is a fairly average fat burner all things considered.
Yes, there are ingredients in here that will work, but it just doesn’t match up to our number #1 product Instant Knockout.
Dosing wise Ammo is slightly off as 2 capsules in one go won’t get you the same results as 4 spread evenly.
The product does look good though and we don’t doubt it will metabolize some fat, but it’s not enough to get into the top 3.
