Bodyfit by London based company Reactive Nutrition is a UK supplements brand specialising in products for weight loss, beauty, and general health. According to the product information, all supplements are manufactured in the UK.
Bodyfit T5 Black Fat Burner is a supplement that is high in stimulants that may cause adverse effects, especially around heart and blood pressure, and some customers have reported hospital treatment following using this supplement. In addition, you should not take it if you are already taking prescription medication because it contains Naringin – a natural chemical derived from grapefruit which is known for interactions.
Despite these major concerns, some users have found that Bodyfit T5 Black Fat Burner has helped weight loss if combined with a healthy diet and exercise plan, but it obviously is not suitable for everyone. If you do use this supplement and suffer from side effects, discontinue use immediately and see your doctor.
Reported side effects from customers include dizziness, breathlessness, breathing difficulties, heartburn, skin irritation, indigestion, shakiness, bad temper, irritability, headaches, vomiting, nausea, increased blood pressure levels, heart palpitations, rapid/pounding heart beat, panic attack, jitteriness, increased hunger, blurred vision, seizure, drowsiness, and fatigue. These side effects are all concurrent with the ingredients profile.
Other side effects may include increased risk of stroke or heart attack, interaction with prescription drugs, and risk of contracting Eosinophilia-myalgia syndrome (EMS).

We do not rate Bodyfit T5 Black Fat Burner very highly at all. We have concerns that this supplement is marketed as a simple diet pill aimed at people who just want to lose some weight, who will not realise the risks it poses to health. We are not impressed by the absence of any warnings to customers because in addition to the stimulants, T5 Black Fat Burner contains a grapefruit derived chemical that will cause interactions with commonplace medication such as Statins. This could be extremely dangerous in some cases, yet is just not mentioned anywhere in the product information.
Losing weight by stimulants is nothing new. Some people like the so-called energy buzz and feel that combined with a diet and weight loss plan, a fat burner like this can really help kick off a diet plan or help when you reach a weight loss plateau. But this supplement is just not suitable for long term use, and for some customers it is not suitable at all.
We do not recommend Bodyfit T5 Black Fat Burner to the Watchdog readers.

Weight loss supplements described as T5 fat burners usually mean one thing, and that is that they contain some pretty strong stimulants.
T5 type supplements first got the name because they aimed at boosting the thyroid hormones. There are two thyroid hormones; triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) and because these hormones play a major role in the control of the metabolism, the T5 name was dreamed up by a marketing company somewhere and the name has stuck.
T5 supplements usually follow the composition of the ECA stack – a set of substances used by bodybuilders to increase the metabolism and fat burning.
ECA stands for ephedrine, caffeine and aspirin and although today ephedrine, a powerful stimulant similar to amphetamine which is now banned, and aspirin do not feature in T5 supplements, the basic idea of a stimulant that has similar properties to amphetamine plus caffeine is still popular. (The aspirin was used to keep ephedrine in the system for longer)
Bodyfit T5 Black Fat Burner contains a large serving of caffeine as well as Bitter Orange Powder – a source of synephrine. Synephrine is a stimulant closely related to amphetamine in that it mimics the body’s flight or fight response – the body’s reaction to stress. This is believed to be effective for weight loss because it reduces appetite and increases energy levels, but it also can cause side effects such as increased heart rate and blood pressure.
Other ingredients include amino acid L Tyrosine, Naringin – a chemical present in grapefruit, and L Tryptophan – an amino acid that may help the body increase serotonin levels. The final ingredients are a concentrated green tea extract and vitamin B6. Check out the ingredients tab to find out more.
Overall, Bodyfit T5 Black Fat Burner is not safe for all users so check out the side effects tab before you decide to try this supplement.
Bodyfit is a UK brand mainly focused on weight loss. We have covered some of the supplement range in previous reviews, including Bodyfit Hunger Ctrl, and Bodyfit Carb Ctrl, and Bodyfit Body Detox.
According to the advertising, T5 Black Fat Burner is effective and fast working.
Bodyfit T5 Fat burner’s patented formula combines caffeine, bitter orange powder and green tea extract among others to put your body into fat-burning mode by raising your metabolism. Its unique time-release technology means that it gets to work in just 20 minutes and will continue to work consistently, with no burn-out or energy crashes.
The product information explains the supplement’s two key features:
BURN IT, DON’T STORE IT: The T5 Black Fat Burner supplement from Bodyfit works on a simple principle: Accelerate your metabolism and thereby force your body to burn that fat you’re carrying around rather than continuing to store it. The result is a slimmer, more satisfied you.
KEEP HUNGER AT BAY: Of course, if you eat less, your body will have less fat to deal with in the first place. That’s why these heavy weight loss pills include Naringin, L-Tryptophan, Caffeine and Green Tea Extract to tamp down your appetite while allowing you to gain more enjoyment from the foods you do eat.
The three key features are as follows:
Overall, it seems that Bodyfit T5 Black Fat Burner may have a stimulant effect which you may find helps decrease appetite and increase energy, but is likely to cause side effects too.
Each serving contains 250mg of listed caffeine, roughly the equivalent of 3 cups of coffee, so you may find that it causes you to climb the walls, however alternatively you may not even notice. It all depends on your own caffeine tolerance.
A good point about T5 Black Fat Burner is that it also contains concentrated green tea extract, and research has suggested that the pairing of green tea with additional caffeine can help increase the speed of the metabolism, more effectively than either of the ingredients taken individually. This part of the formula may actually work for some people, but unfortunately the rest of the ingredients profile does come with added risks.
Orange powder is a source of synephrine and although the precise quantity is not listed, it seems unlikely to be very strong. This is just as well because synephrine is a sympathomimetic agent, which means that it mimics the action of stress hormones (noradrenaline) causing stress related effects such as decreased hunger, increased energy, sweating, and increased heart rate. It is not a safe for weight loss and neither is it very successful long term. It is linked with causing heart attacks and strokes, and some users of this supplement have mentioned synephrine type side effects despite the possibly low serving size.
We also have concerns about L Tryptophan. This is an essential amino acid which means that the body needs it, but is only obtainable from food. In supplement form it can be dangerous.
Serving size is equal to one capsule.
Many customers have reported suffering some alarming adverse effects, with some people actually going to hospital as a result of taking this supplement. Reported side effects include:
Other side effects may include:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Do not take this supplement if you are taking prescription medication because it probably will cause interactions. Do not take this supplement if you have an underlying medical condition or have a risk of stroke or heart attack. Ask your doctor for advice before using. In the case of side effects, discontinue use immediately and take medical advice. Do not forget to take your bottle with you, if you have to attend A and E.
Despite the risk of side effects experienced by many users, not everyone has had problems with this supplement and some customers are satisfied.
Positive comments include,
‘I’ve never used a product like this one, it’s working wonders for me I’ve lost four inches from my waist in the first month and feel magic, I would definitely recommend this product to friends and family.
Seems to be working fine. Your body takes a few days to get used to it but I have noticed a difference in the 2 weeks since I started taking them. They have definitely surpressed my appetite and I don’t feel hungry. Will see how they go in the long term.
Some customers are less impressed,
Didn’t get anything out of it at all
Didn’t work for me
Some people have reported very serious side effects,
The day after taking these I was feeling quite Ill, started getting pins and needles all over, I was getting a numbness feeling in my body, struggling to breath, I was breathing too fast and was getting too much oxygen. My pulse rate was beating faster than normal. An ambulance was called, they put me on a heart monitor and checked my blood pressure in the ambulance and then my pulse went up to 172bmp so they rushed me to hospital…
I took these for 3 days. 1 pill a day. On the 3rd day, I went out for my morning brisk walk as usual, I felt really light headed and felt weightless at first, then my eye sight became completely blurry and I could see flashing lights everywhere in my eye….. I then spent the rest of the day and night at hospital. Drs said this (supplement) was definitely a major part of the cause…
Do not buy this product!!!!! It did nothing but make me extremely ill.Headaches, nausea, sickness, heart palpitations and numbness in arm. Very scary experience.
Really terrible product made me really ill with migraines and vomiting. Had to go in to hospital with high blood pressure….
