Zantrex-3, is the latest fat burner from Zantrex-3. This supplement promises that you will not only get rid of body weight, but actual body fat. (Sort of what we want from any fat burner anyway guys!) This fat burner makes absolutely massive claims. But lets take a look at the product and ingredients and see if it can back them up and deserves the #1 fat burning spot.
Strong colors from the Zantrex-3 fat burner. Red and yellow, really backing up that you are going to burn through fat. But, other than that, the bottle is a little cheap looking, and while it has some old 60’s exercise supplement appeal, we don’t feel as if we are invested in anything premium here!
Lets take a look at the ingredients that go into the “high energy compound” Zantrex-3 fat burner is famous for. But first, may we remind you why we have a little problem with blends like this…THEY DON’T SHOW YOU EXACT DOSE! This could mean you are getting ripped off by them using cheap ingredients more than others or even worse, lead to some nasty side effects as you don’t actually know how much of each ingredient you are putting in yourself! Anyway, let’s keep it fair and review this just like we would any other fat burner.
We are a big fan of this ingredient at What Fat Burner. It’s been heavily tested and is a proven fat burning ingredient. This should definitely be on your list when buying a good fat burner. Remember, this is also a safe and natural ingredient. Ideally you want about 500mg of this ingredient per day for optimum fat burning effect.
Citrus extract was big in around 2008 and praised for it’s fat burning potential. It works by increasing your metabolic rates without affecting blood pressure too much. In a recent study though it was found that Citrus Extract is unreliable and the dosage you’d need to yield results would be extremely high. It’s an ingredient similar to bitter orange peel, which we cover frequently, that simply isn’t worth your money!
Guarana is an amazonian plant that’s uses within the sports industry see it as a stimulant. This plant contains caffeine. While it is a fairly good source of natural caffeine and something that is reasonably safe, it does need to be dosed right, something which again, is hard for us to tell if it is, due to the blend!
Coffee (Bean) Extract
We are unable to tell if it’s brown or green coffee bean in Zantrex-3 Zantrex-3 Fat Burner, but, regardless it will be a good source of caffeine. We hope this product uses the well tested and effected unroasted version (Green coffee bean) as in this form it is extremely high in Chlorogenic acid, a chemical that helps reduce the formation of glucose in your liver. This aids the maintenance of sugar levels and in one 2012 study it was observed that it actually reduced body weight and fat percentage.
Kelp comes from seaweed. It provides the body with extra iodine, iodine is a mineral which is important for the thyroid gland (a part of you that helps regulate weight loss). The problem with this ingredient, is it was over commercialised, and while iodine is important, there is next to nobody who has problems with iodine. So you, don’t need it. Save your money and ignore this fad!
Used in the wider world as something that makes food taste better, Kola extract or Garcinia cambogia, is used in supplements as an appetite suppressant. It’s taken from a fruit and has proven to aid weight loss in rats. Problem? There has been no proof that this ingredient works the same with humans, and 3 studies have found that it actually has no weight loss effects in humans.
Big problem with the dose in this supplement, it’s a propriety blend, so we can’t actually tell you whats what in it. While we are sure Zantrex wouldn’t rip customers off, we are still skeptical about anything that won’t disclose what you are putting into yourself in full. While there are some strong natural fat burning ingredients, you could end up with a capsule full of kelp and little else. Or worse find it a little strong. If you are convinced about buying, make sure you test your tolerance first.
We found this product for $34.99, which is fairly pricey for a product that doesn’t disclose fully whats in it. We’d recommend looking for a more premium fat burner. Check out our current #1, or look at Grenade Thermo Detonator. You can buy it from www.astrosupplements.com
We thought this was going to be a strong contender, but it’s been let down by some poor ingredients and a propriety blend. We like the packaging though, and found it easy to order. However there were just a few poor choices of ingredient in here too. While it’s safe, it’s most likely not packing enough to be a proper fat burner. Remember, buy natural, buy a product where you can see the full ingredients list, and buy premium. You can check out our current number #1 here.
