Another fat burner from the mighty MuscleTech, this time a the next gen version of their fat burner Xenadrine! MuscleTech do a load of at burning products and this is the latest version.
Xenadrine Next Gen, like lots of MuscleTech products, looks the part and has a fairly solid ingredients profile to match.
MuscleTech have used proprietary blends of common ingredients to get your body burning through fat as energy.
The problem with proprietary blends is you cannot see the individual doses of ingredients and so could leave yourself prone to side effects and may just get a product full of the cheaper and less effective ingredients.
Xenadworks especially well when combined with a heavy workout and diet routine.
Muscletech Xenadrine Next Gen Core Ingredients
You get a big serving of all your B Vitamins with MuscleTech Xenadrine Next Gen. Exactly what you want from any fat burner.
This should be standard though. The part of this product that is going to have the main impact is the ingredients that go into the two blends; Fast Release Liquid Matrix and the Weight Loss Energy and Focus Enhancer.
As blends they look to be a bit of a mixed bag, with some ingredients that are backed by science and will work and others that are expensive and largely untested.
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.
Rhodiola can be found in the Arctic and Alpine areas of Europe, Asia and America. Cultures as far back as Ancient Greece have used it as a tonic.
It is largely used to help the body adapt to stress and fatigue. It is thought to strengthen the nervous system, fight depression, enhance immunity, elevate the capacity for exercise, enhance memory, aid weight reduction, increase sexual function and improve energy levels.
There’s still a bit of studying required for it’s use as a fat burner, but the other health benefits are good.
Conjugated linoleic acids are generally found in meats and dairy products. Generally it’s thought that CLA can help with weight loss by affecting insulin resistance. However this was generally found in rats that were studied and hasn’t been proven in humans.
This helps in that it reduces the absorption of blood sugar by the intestine. It then inhibits an enzyme in the liver which means that less glucose is released into the bloodstream. So with less glucose readily available the body will burn fat first.
This is a proven ingredient and essential for those looking to burn fat.
Muscletech Xenadrine Next Gen Dose
2 Liquid capsules is the dose size for Xenadrine.
This is a little low, especially when you consider the price you are paying for it. Generally with fat burners you need a product that’s going to keep you fully dosed for as long as possible through the day.
This will ensure that your body is ultilizing the ingredients and burning fat as fuel for as long as possible.
It also avoids energy crashes from the stimulants, something which Xenadrine Next Gen may leave you prone to.
Muscletech Xenadrine Next Gen Side Effects
You shouldn’t really get any severe side effects from MuscleTech Xenadrine Next Gen.
All the ingredients are safe and are most likely on the lower side of the doses. Its worth remembering though, that because you are only getting 2 capsules per day, you may experience some energy crashes. Which isn’t what you want when you are trying to cut fat.
Muscletech Xenadrine Next Gen Review Conclusion
This is the latest in a long line of MuscleTech fat burners and one that we are fairly impressed with.
It’s a little frustrating to see they’ve hidden away some ingredients into a proprietary blend though. Overall some ingredients in Xenadrine will work and the product does look great.
The liquid capsules may offer marginal benefits too. All in all, this is a slightly above average fat burner from MuscleTech.
