Body War Body Shred looks to only be available in Australia at present. There is a bit of an issue concerning the ingredients, the information provided by the manufacturer doesn’t quite match up with what the sellers say. Whatever the case may be, there are some dodgy and dangerous ingredients included, and in unknown amounts. As you can’t be certain what Body War Body Shred contains, we would definitely suggest that you regard this supplement with caution.


  • There is no good reason to take this supplement.


  • Conflicting information about ingredients.
  • Dangerous. Could cause potentially lethal side effects.
  • No information regarding manufacture.
Body War Body Shred is an extreme fat burner in the form of weight loss powder and is loaded with fat burning ingredients to help you declare the “war on fat”. This supplement comes from relatively new Australian supplement company Body War Nutrition and fits into the bodybuilding category of supplements.

We take an in-depth look at Body War Body Shred to find out more.

Body War Body Shred Overview

What you need to know about Body War Body Shred

With 22 ingredients showing up on the label, the effects of this supplement are going to be unpredictable, especially as we do not have any information about ingredient quantities. Some ingredients look safe, such as green tea, capsicum, African mango and green coffee bean, but we are very concerned about the potential side effects of some of the other ingredients.

Body Shred contains a lot of unusual stimulants such as Norcoclaurine and Pikatropin and Amp Citrate all well known for their effects upon heart and blood pressure. There are also some frankly weird ingredients, which lack evidence, and any safety information such as horsetail and Dendrobium. It also contains possibly high levels of caffeine and Citrus Aurantium.

Overall, we think this supplement is dangerous and unlikely to help you lose much weight.

What are the side effects of Body War Body Shred?

There is quite a lengthy list of potential side effects, please see the Side Effects section below for the full breakdown.

How much does Body War Body Shred cost?

Body War Body Shred Key Features

Body War Body Shred is a powder that you add to water and drink as a Shake. It is available in three flavours: Cola Blast, Coconut Lychee, and Peaches in Cream, so if you have a sweet tooth you will probably enjoy these tastes.

This supplement has a warning stating that it is a strong and extreme fat burner.

Body War Body Shred Key Points

  • If you contact Nick via the Body Shred website you can sell this supplement yourself. Other than this there is no customer service line.
  • The powder is available in three flavours.
  • Sold only in Australia.

There is a lot of confusion over the ingredients in Body War Body Shred, which is troubling. Many of the people selling this supplement claim different ingredients for this supplement.

We decided to go straight to the Body War Nutrition website and take a look at the ingredients listed by the main distributor/ manufacturer or whatever their role actually is. This did not work because the one page Body War Nutrition website lacks any real information such as proper ingredients information or an accurate list, the country of supplements origin or a buy it now button.

The principle seller appears to be Rockhard Supplements also an Australian website. Their information is confusing, because according to their ingredients list for Body War Body Shred, the profile is different again, to what is listed on the Body War Nutrition Website. None of this adds up.

Finally, we found an ingredients label. It contained different ingredients to those listed on the Body War Nutrition Site and the Rockhard Supplements site.

How to Take Body War Body Shred

Take 1 Scoop (5g) with 200ml added to cold water and shake!
BodyShred should be taken upon waking in the morning or 30-40 minutes prior to exercise.
Initially start with ½ a scoop as Body Shred is an extremely potent product.

What we can say for sure, is this supplement contains some questionable ingredients.

These include Amp Citrate which is very similar to now banned DMAA a stimulant with dangerous side effects, cognitive enhancer Pikatropin (more commonly known as Picamilion) and Bitter orange – a stimulant also known as synephrine and may help fat burning as well as increase heart rate and blood pressure.

There are also some more mainstream ingredients such as caffeine, green tea and raspberry ketone plus some unusual herbal extracts.

Body War Body Shred Concerns:

  • What does this supplement really contain? Nobody seems to know for sure.
  • The side effects. You are gambling with your health if you take this supplement.
  • No customer feedback. Has anyone actually taken this supplement?

Body War Body Shred comes from Australian supplements company Body War Nutrition.

There is little information about the supplements or the company itself and the supplements are unavailable to by from the website. You are however invited to contact someone called Nick for wholesale enquiries should you want to sell the supplements yourself.

Other supplements include Pre War and Shred 24, which appear to be very similar to Body Shred.

What does Body War Body Shred claim to do?

According to the information on the Rockhard – the principle seller’s website:

Minutes after consuming BodyShred the positive effects begin! With every serve of BodyShred you are absorbing high concentrations of advanced ingredients to assist you in reaching your health and fitness goals! Body War Nutrition offers the most advanced products available on the market today!

Does Body War Body Shred work?

Whether it works for weight loss is anybody’s guess. There is no telling what this supplement will do!

It does contain some weight loss ingredients which can be effective. Green tea, caffeine, African mango and white kidney bean can help support weight loss and all these ingredients do come with some proof. Caffeine can help when used in moderation too.

However there isn’t much evidence for raspberry ketones or green coffee bean and in our opinion, the principle effects will come from the stimulants. This supplement will probably make you feel it is doing something but in most cases, this will be increased heart rate and blood pressure plus enhanced energy, which will probably feel like a chemical buzz. It could even cause a heart attack or stroke.

It all depends of course on the ingredient quantities but nobody actually has this information.

Body War Body Shred Ingredients

Body War Body Shred is a weight loss powder that you add to water in order to make a weight loss drink.

Information is conflicting about what this powder actually contains. The ingredients profile is not consistent between Body War Nutrition, the so-called supplier of this supplement, and the people selling this supplement.

There is also no ingredient quantities information so information here is just a general overview taken from a product label we managed to find.

  • Taurine: Early clinical research suggested that taurine improves mental performance but more recently, this claim has been disputed. Ingredient in Red Bull.
  • Acetyl Carnitine: Amino acid that helps the body convert fat into energy. May have an effect upon the metabolism and muscle development.
  • Erithytol: Sugar alcohol used as a zero calorie sweetener by the food industry.
  • Green coffee bean extract: Contains chlorogenic acid believed to inhibit glucose into the blood stream. Very little evidence that it helps weight loss despite the hype.
  • Gurana: South American bean, which contains more caffeine than the coffee bean.
  • Garcinia Cambogia: Much touted ingredient that may help prevent carbs from adding to body fat by blocking an enzyme in the body called citrate amylase. May have a slight effect upon weight but lacks any real evidence.
  • Caffeine: Most diet pills contain caffeine and like drinking a cup of strong coffee, it is ideal for giving you a quick lift. Can help increase speed of the metabolism but effects depend on your tolerance to caffeine, which varies from person to person.
  • Green tea extract: Green tea has proven benefits for health and may help weight loss too. It is rich in antioxidants and can increase the speed of the metabolism.
  • White tea extract: White tea does not contain anything different to green tea except it contains fewer antioxidants. It is not as effective for health or weight loss as green tea but is generally beneficial and safe.
  • Kidney bean extract: Beans are a good source of protein and fibre but are probably better when used as part of your normal diet rather than in supplement form. Can help you to feel fuller for longer.
  • Yerba Mate: Caffeine rich herbal extract often drunk as an alternative to tea or coffee in South America. May have added benefits to weight loss.
  • Raspberry ketones: Over exaggerated weight loss ingredient that is believed to boost fat burning. However, it lacks human clinical testing and any real evidence. May contain a chemical similar to synephrine, which is a stimulant.
  • Amp Citrate: Also called Methylpentane or DMBA, this chemical is similar to banned DMMA. It speeds up heart rate and causes blood vessels to contract in other parts of the body in a stimulant effect.
    Amp citrate has not been evaluated for safety and dosage levels remain unknown. It may be banned in the near future by the FDA for safety reasons. It is dangerous to heart and blood pressure.
  • African Mango: Also known as Irvingia Gabonensis, this extract may help promote leptin- the hormone that signals feelings of satiety. Has undergone human clinical testing that displayed positive results.
  • Capsicum: Hot chilli pepper believed to increase metabolism and cause thermogenesis but needs to be in high quantities in order for it to work
  • Pikatropin: Also known as Picamilion, this compound made from niacin and GABA is sometimes taken for its nootropic effect. In Russia, it is prescribed for alcoholism and depression. Can cause side effects including high blood pressure and skin irritation,
  • Dendrobium: Extract derived from a species of orchid that is believed to enhance athletic performance. However, the effects are unpredictable and it can cause a range of potentially dangerous side effects
  • Olive leaf extract: Generally good for health but no special relevance to weight loss or fat burning
  • Norcoclaurine: Also known as Higenamine. This stimulant increases heart rate and causes heart muscles to contract. Very unsafe. Potentially lethal for some users.
  • Horsetail: Plant sometimes used for fluid retention and other urinary conditions. Possibly dangerous,
  • Celery seed: No real evidence but sometimes taken for menstrual pains and urinary problems.
  • Bitter orange: Also known as Citrus Aurantium this stimulant contains the chemical synephrine, which can increase heart rate and blood pressure. Sometimes taken for weight loss because it can decrease appetite as well as increase energy. Recognised as dangerous.

Watchdog Verdict

We are not impressed with Body War Body Shred. The distributor’s website does not provide any ingredients information and advertises a different ingredient profile to the one that is shown on the label. There is no information about where this supplement is manufactured, the source of the ingredients or even what they are.

We think it is highly likely that Body War Body Shred is imported, possibly from China. Wherever it is made, it is unlikely to conform to any health standards or good manufacturing practice (GMP).

This supplement looks dangerous and, despite this risk, seems unlikely to help you lose weight or support fat burning in the way as advertised.

We can honestly say that we have no idea what this supplement will do. There is no customer feedback and none of the 22 listed ingredients (the ones on the label) come with any information about quantities. Many of them are untested and some are known for causing potentially lethal side effects around heart and blood pressure.

It is important to remember that just because a supplement is on sale, it doesn’t mean it is safe.

The bottom line is that this supplement looks extremely dangerous and should certainly be avoided. Therefore, it is a very easy decision. We reject Body War Body Shred.

This product is very dangerous for sure… I have taken it as prescribed one scoop and for 5 hours delt with severe dripping sweat, extreme salivating….cramps… nausea; was a scary roller coaster ride certainly. Another friend ended in the hospital to a worsen reaction. Unless your into self infliction would not recommend

  2. I had some of this today….dripping with sweat for nearly 4 hours. Salivating beyond belief, to the point of nausea.
    I definitely have lost kgs in a few hours but that is all the fluid that is coming out of my pores. Feel ok.
