Instant Knockout Fat Burner may definitely have made our list of one of the top fat burners out there, but that certainly does not mean that it’s without its flaws. Having a fat burner comes with the bad news of a few side inevitable but manageable side effects and the Instant Knockout is no exception.

Side effects from Instant Knockout are extremely rare. So don’t be put off by this as most will only occur in higher doses than goes into Instant Knockout. Especially when the dose is spread evenly.

Read on to find out which ingredients within the Instant Knockout Fat Burner could cause some side effects:

Cayenne Pepper:

We’ve mentioned it in many of our fat burners reviews about the effectiveness of Cayenne pepper when it comes to weight loss as it can increase the body temperature to literally burn fat through a process known as thermogenesis.

It sounds good, and to some extent, it is, but it does come with some repercussions like feeling sweaty, nauseous, and in severe cases, liver and kidney damage. Now, this doesn’t mean that having Instant Knockout fat burner will literally cause all of this as it varies from person to person.

As long as you keep consuming it in a healthy dose, this side effect is quite manageable.

Caffeine:

You probably saw this coming, and here it is. Caffeine, the notorious element behind the ‘jitters’ you get from drinking one too many cups of coffee can happen to you if you pop in one too many Instant Knockouts too.

Though it should be noted that caffeine isn’t inherently dangerous for you. As a matter of fact, having caffeine in controlled amounts by drinking beverages like green tea can give you a moderate energy boost without any side effects whatsoever.

But yeah, don’t have one too many fat burning pills in the hopes to kill your next workout session.

GFT Chromium: 

GFT chromium aids your weight loss endeavors by helping your body metabolize fats into cells. While mildly suppressing appetite its natural function allows your body to prevent a high blood sugar level which is definitely not good for your body whether from a weight loss or just a general health perspective. On the flip side, high amounts of GFT chromium is associated with side effects such as skin irritation, headaches, dizziness, nausea, mood changes and impaired thinking, judgment, and coordination. Once again, this is a high-dosage scenario. A healthy dose and you’ll most probably be facing with a very moderate version of these side effects if any at all.

Glucomannan:

Glucomannan may look like yet another appetite suppressor but is in fact much more than that. It’s an ingredient that actually contains a very good amount of dietary fiber and is quite expensive as well, making it actually a good trait about Instant Knockout’s ingredient list. So what’s the catch? While most people will be able to handle a decent dosage of Glucomannan just fine, if glucomannan expands before reaching the stomach, it may cause choking or blockage of the throat and esophagus (the tube that moves food from your mouth to your stomach). To prevent this, experts recommend having washing it down with 1-2 glasses of water or any other liquid.

Green Tea Extracts: 

Though it may seem impossible, but there are harmful side effects of having extracts of something as healthy as green tea in a fat burner. This is mainly because of the extraction process, so having a few cups of green tea everyday would actually do you no harm. As far as extracts go, having an excessive dosage of it can cause some serious liver and kidney damage. Other problems include headache, nervousness, sleep problems, vomiting, diarrhea and irritability.

All of this is just a reference to what could happen should you take the Instant Knockout fat burner in a very large dosage. Just consult your doc and consume it in recommended dosage in order to keep most if not all of these side effects at bay.
