[Originally Published November 2015 on Best Fat Burners]
While 2014 was the beginning for the wave of new fat burners to the point that you’d be overwhelmed at the amount of choices, 2015 is a bit better as critics have reviewed most if not all of the fat burners and made it clear which one is worth your money and which one isn’t. But even then, 2015 is flocked with a lot of ‘good’ fat burners but which one should you go for?
That’s what we’re here for! Read on, to find out the top 3 fat burners 2015:
Alpha Lean 7: Made by Hard Rock Supplements, alpha lean 7 has made quite a name for itself, even enjoying the number 1 position in many lists (this one included) for quite a while before being replaced by other ones.
Nevertheless, managing to reach that position within 11 months with so many others struggling for the same is quite a feat in itself. But numbers don’t matter, results do, and that’s exactly the reason why alpha lean 7 is recommended by many people: because it uses a long list of tried-and-tested ingredients that are natural (for the most part): Rauwolfia, Cissus Quadrangularis, Dandelion, Green Tea, Betaine (trimethylglycine), Synephrine, Caffeine, L-carnitine and Yohimbe.
It aims to burn fat by increasing metabolism so you can exercise for longer periods of time, and using Synephrine to bring about fat oxidation, and there the ones you’ve already heard of like green extracts and Yohimbe for their awesome fat-reducing effects.
When it comes to side effects, however, the story is a bit different than you’d expect it to be.
The only side effect reported by some people so far is the stimulants being a little too overwhelming for their taste and hence affecting their sleep, which is nothing that can’t be fixed by taking a lower dose of the product and then working your way up. This is good considering that Yohimbe comes with some side effects but it won’t hurt to check with your doc before buying this one.
Pros: Effective, good price of $34.95 for 90 pills, uses natural ingredients.1
Cons: The stimulant effect might be overwhelming.
Demon Burn 50: It seems that Hard Rock Supplements have really stepped up their game if that wasn’t clear earlier as their Demon Burn 50 fat burner is just as good as its counterpart.
The only difference is that it functions a bit differently as it aims to curb your appetite as well and also has a different list of ingredients that, while not as natural as the ones in the alpha lean 7, is good enough to get the job done.
It contains Vitamin B6, Caffeine Anhydrous, Chromium, Vitamin B12, Phenylethylamine HCL, Cayenne, Theobromine, Green tea leaves extracts, Synephrine HCL, Methlysnephrine and Barks of white willow.
While this list looks pretty good as you can see that there are a few different ways those ingredients can work to bring about weight loss, the problem is that a lot of the ingredients are stimulants (caffeine anhydrous, methlysnephrine, synephrine and Theobromine) which do lead to many side effects from overconsumption like jitters, high blood pressure and so on.
On the plus side, one bottle containing 100 pills does come at a cheap price of $34.95, so that’s essentially a 3-month supply in a single bottle when you take one pill every day (which should be enough).
Pros: Effective, cheap and easily available
Cons: A lot of stimulants may cause sleep issues and other commonly associated problems.
Hydroxyelite: Made by Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals, this an upgrade of its banned predecessor the oxyelite fat burner as that one had too many problems with it.
This, however, is its legally approved successor and uses the same formula as the oxyelite sans any dangerous side effects. It aims to get rid of fat by suppressing appetite, blocking carbs, boosting metabolism, increasing energy usage and thermogenesis.
This one uses stimulants in its fat burner too but not as many as the first one in the list. It’s complete ingredient list includes Garcinia Cambogia Extract, Caffeine Anhydrous, 1,3-Dimethylamylamine, Rauwolscine Extract, Cirsium Oligophyllum Extract, Bauhinia Purpurea Extract and Bacopa Extract.
Now most of these ingredients are something you may not have heard of, but in a jist, they are mostly extracts of their natural counterparts that do various functions to bring about weight loss. You get 90 capsules in 1 container that costs $34.99, once again making it nearly as cheap as the second on and being just as effective.
However, the obvious negative here is once again the side effects but this time it’s a bit serious so we urge you to tread carefully, consult a doc and only have these in the recommended dose (1 per day).
While the regular ones are insomnia and high blood pressure as a result of caffeine, the more serious one DMAA that has been associated with causing high heartbeat, stroke and heart attack, this has led to the supplement being banned in some parts of the world like New Zealand and Canada.
Pros: Effective, cheap and easily available
Cons: Stimulant causes insomnia and DMAA can cause some serious issues if the supplement hasn’t been consumed properly.
