As you name suggest, Chili Burn contains the hugely popular ingredient, red chili pepper, found in a number of diet pills on the market at the moment. How does Chili Burn stand up against the competition, let’s find out.
Chili Burn is a weight loss supplement manufactured by Scandinavian company, New Nordic, who have been producing supplements for 20 years.
Although supposedly available from leading UK high street stores we were only able to find it in Boots and Holland and Barrett. In keeping with the red chilli pepper theme, the box is a striking red colour. It’s reasonably priced too at just over £20.
We asked the staff about the product but they seemed to know very little about it, other than the information presented on the box. It’s worth pointing out that when taking Chili Burn the serving size changes after two weeks, so that it is recommended that you take 2 tablets twice per day (so 4 tablets per day) for the first two weeks. After this time you reduce the dosage to just 2 tablets per day.
We picked up our sample and got to work delving into Chili Burn, the company behind it and how effective it could be for weight loss. Encouragingly we couldn’t find any online reports of scams against New Nordic or about Chili Burn. They appear to be an established company who stock their products in reputable UK high stores.
Chili Burn claims to offer a simple solution to help consumers to manage their weight, to keep their current weight and ensure a healthy digestion.
Using natural ingredients that combine the potent fat burning and antioxidant properties of chilli pepper and green tea (epigallocatechins) you can:
All the ingredients used in Chili Burn capsules are 100% natural, disappointingly all the online retailers we found DO NOT reveal the ingredient amounts!
We were able to find the ingredient amounts by looking at the manufacturers’ website though. So let’s take a closer look at the ingredients in each Chili Burn capsule:
Chili Burn relies on Chili Pepper and Green Tea to enhance fat burning by boosting metabolism whilst the Dill seed works to soothe the stomach and aid digestion.
If you are familiar with our reviews you will know that we are NEVER keen on diet pills that fail to disclose the ingredient amounts and supply scientific studies to backup claims. For the simply reason it makes it impossible to know if sufficient active ingredients exist to actually work! In fairness New Nordic DO reveal the ingredients but all the retailers who stock Chili Burn that we could find DON’T. No scientific data is referenced though.
Never buy or consume a product where there is no indication of what is in it!
You are advised not to take Chili Burn if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or suffer from allergies without seeking professional medical advice.
There looks to be other possible concerns when taking this supplement too, ensure you don’t suffer from any of the following medical conditions.
Caution: If you suffer from any of these conditions you should seek advice from your doctor prior to using: gallstones, stomach ulcers or inflammation, liver disorders, anemia, hiatus hernia, iron deficiency.
Adverse Reactions Possible: Most retailers warn that gastro esophageal reflux hypersensitivity may be experienced by some consumers! If you do experience such symptoms you should discontinue taking Chili Burn immediately.
Although it’s been on the market for sometime there is a real lack of consumer feedback on Chili Burn, which is always a bit of a concern.
What little feedback there is available is mixed with one consumer reporting:
Don’t waste your money, as my title says the only lbs you will loose will be the £17 -£20 you spend when buying them. They don’t even give the small energy buzz that other slimming tablets give you, although I have noticed they helped with wind & bloating.
In contrast L. Mallard from the UK reported:
I first bought this product at Holland and Barrett. When I starting using this product I found that it worked really really well.
It’s worth considering that the consumer combined Chili Burn with regular exercise and reduced calorie diet:
My weight loss plan also included calorie restriction (less than 1500 calories a day on average, I use calorie cycling and find it is really helpful) and some light exercise.
As with other red chilli based diet pills, the main ingredients are Chili Pepper and Green tea, a popular ingredient found in many weight loss supplements.
Studies on red pepper and Capsaicinoids (the active component in chilli peppers) have been shown to enhance metabolism, increase energy expenditure and help to reduce calorie intake.
There is very little Chili pepper in Chili Burn, far less than other Chili diet pills on the market, for example the leading competitor Capsiplex has 3 times more the amount of Chili pepper! Unlike Capsiplex who references supporting studies for its claims, Chili Burn makes no such attempts. Instead you are to take New Nordic’s word that it will burn more calories.
Looking at Green Tea, there is a lot of anecdotal evidence to suggest it has positive health benefits due to its potent antioxidant properties. There is caffeine present in Green Tea and it is thought when combined with the properties of the catechins (epigallocatechin gallate or EGCG) may boost metabolism and reduce fat.
In summary, whilst both Chili Pepper and Green Tea have some scientific data to support increased metabolism and promote fat burning, Chili Burn contains very little Chili Pepper in comparison to other similar diet pills on the market.
Chili Burn is available in UK high street shops such as Holland and Barrett, Boots, Lloyds Pharmacy, and Tescos. The supplement is also available through online retailers such as Holland and Barrett, who also offer worldwide shipping.
The manufacturer doesn’t appear to offer a money-back guarantee.
The supplement is reasonably priced costing around £21 ($28) for a box of 60 capsules.

We have some concerns over Nordic’s Chili Burn diet pills.
Firstly, it’s been on the market for some time and yet lacks any credible consumer testimonials. The few that are available give mixed feedback!
Secondly, no individual ingredient amounts are disclosed by retailers meaning it is impossible to know if sufficient ingredients actually exist. There is simply NO WAY to know for sure if it works!
Lastly, there is little information about the product, with no clinical data to back up any claims and what looks to be no manufacturer money-back guarantee.
The chilli diet pill market is competitive with a number of supplements using this ingredient that Chili Burn simply doesn’t stand up to the competition! For these reasons we reject Nordic’s Chili Burn diet pills!
The most potent Superfruit diet pill on the market, includes clinically proven Green Tea, African Mango and Acai Berry.
