Ingredients

Probably the most important aspect of what makes a fat burner a good one is the amount and dosage of ingredients included into it. Let’s see what ingredients are present in each of the competitors and a brief explanation on what they do:

OxyShred Fat Burner

  • L-carnitine: An ingredient that helps metabolize fat into energy.
  • Conjugated Linoleic Acid: Responsible for creating fat burning enzymes to reduce fat in the stomach, thigh and hip region.
  • African Wild Mango: Helps in balancing blood glucose levels, increasing leptin and lowering cholesterol.
  • Raspberry Ketones: Raspberry ketones contain an ingredient similar to synephrine that increases overall body temperature to reduce fat but doesn’t have any side effects present in its synthetic counterparts.
  • Naringin: A flavonoid that stimulates the liver in producing fat-burning enzymes and also lowers lipid levels.
  • Green Tea Extract: Contains compounds called catechins that boost metabolism and inherently contains a mild dose of caffeine as well.

Instant Knockout Fat Burner

  • Caffeine: A stimulant that increases metabolism and provides energy.
  • Green tea extracts: Contains compounds called catechins that boost metabolism and inherently contains a mild dose of caffeine as well.
  • Cayenne pepper extracts: An ingredient that induces thermogenesis: a process in which your body burns fat by increasing its temperature. Also boosts metabolism.
  • GFT chromium: Another effective ingredient that helps your body metabolize fats into cells.
  • Glucomannan: This appetite suppressant contains a lot of dietary fiber and is scientifically proven to work very well for making you fell full.

The Bottom Line

It’s easy to tell that the Instant Knockout and the OxyShred take a very different approach in choosing their ingredient. While the OxyShred uses ingredients that are more towards the natural side with some of them also being scientifically approved, their use of a proprietary blend makes everything they do doubtful as there’s no way to confirm how well it will work. Instant Knockout, on the other hand, uses ingredients that are simple but effective, thus securing this round by a decent margin.

Side Effects

Side burners are almost inevitable when dealing with fat burners as even the best ones have some experimental ingredient or a combination of ingredients that can be harmful in some ways. What makes one better than the other is the intensity and the kind of side effects that they have. Sneak a peek at what the Oxyshred vs Instant Knockout fat burner has to offer here:

OxyShred Fat Burner

  • Abnormal doses of caffeine can cause insomnia, jitters and restlessness
  • L-Carnatine can cause stomach upset, nausea, vomiting, and restlessness.
  • Large intake of CLA can cause tiredness, nausea, stomach discomforts and possible diarrhea.

Instant Knockout Fat Burner

  • Abnormal doses of caffeine can cause insomnia, jitters and restlessness
  • Cayenne pepper can cause stomach irritation
  • Severe problems that only arise out of an abnormal dosage.

The Bottom Line

Both of the competitors have their fair share of side effects but the Instant Knockout ultimately wins this one too, mainly because it doesn’t contain as heavy of a dose of caffeine as the OxyShred does. Even having the OxyShred in regular serving (since it’s a powder and not a pill) is enough for users to report that they feel the jitters of overconsumption of caffeine.

Price

While you didn’t require a ton of money to get fit in the good ol’ days, the advent of fat burners, protein supplements and pre-workout supplements has made fitness pricier than ever. So it’s obvious that a cheaper fat burner will be a better buy if its effective enough.

OxyShred Fat Burner

One tub of OxyShred fat burner costs $69.95 but their so-called ‘discounted’ price when you buy 2 tubs is again $139.95, which is basically the same thing. However, you do get a free EHPLabs L-Carnatine tub when you buy a pack of 2. On the plus side, they have it available in multiple flavors and it’s readily available at other stores and online shopping websites as well.

Instant Knockout Fat Burner

One bottle of the instant knockout fat burner costs $59 for 120 capsules which is basically a month’s dosage as Instant Knockout recommends taking 4 pills every day. However, one can get an even better value out of their first few packs if they’re just starting out, as we’ve discussed in another post that taking 4 pills every day if you’ve started taking fat burner pills for the first time can be overwhelming. You can get it for a cheaper rate through multi-box deals but the caveat is that it’s only available on their website.

The Bottom Line

Ultimately, we feel this is a tie, as both of the products have their pros and cons. Where the Instant Knockout has a cheaper price and a better discount too, the OxyShred makes up for it using a variety of flavors and easy availability of the product, not to mention the freebie when buying a 2-pack.

Brand

While brand recognition isn’t as important as the effectiveness and the ingredient list of a fat burner, a company that’s old and has a history of making good products is obviously considered more reliable than a company that’s either considered sketchy or just started off.

OxyShred Fat Burner

Made by EHPLabs, Oxyshred is just one of the many nutrition and diet supplements that the company makes, as it has been around for a long time. It’s got mixed reviews for some products and positive for others, but there’s no denying that it remains a brand that most if not all people will recognize when mentioned.

Instant Knockout Fat Burner

Roar Ambition’s Instant Knockout series has been popular even before the consumer-grade product had entered into the market. Earlier it was only formulated to be used by boxers and MMA fighters, who have both testified for the authenticity of the product.

The Bottom Line

While brand recognition is good on both sides, what made the Instant Knockout a winner was is that all of its products have made a name for themselves, with the fat burner itself being originally used for and recommended by MMA fighters!

Conclusion

In the end, both competitors fared pretty good, but Instant Knockout stood out due to lesser side effects and a cheaper price tag with lots of users claiming that it’s worth it.
