DNA Lean is a British company that specialises in sports supplements. “Start using the DNA Lean® sports supplements range and unlock your genetic potential” says the company information. Supplements are geared towards muscle building and strength rather than simple fat loss.
DNA Lean Thermo XX is marketed as a woman only supplement, essentially because it contains ingredients to make you pee so is supposed to help with water retention. However, this supplement does not seem safe and side effects could be a major issue. It contains a cocktail of potentially dangerous ingredients and although the advertising states there are only 2mg of caffeine, it does contain the stimulant synephrine which is well known for adverse effects such as increased heart rate and blood pressure. In addition, you must avoid this supplement if you are trying to conceive because it may cause miscarriage.
The bottles contain 60 capsules (30 servings), so should be sufficient for a month’s supply. However, you are advised that you can take two servings a day which means it will only last 15 days. The supplement is on sale via the official website where you are encouraged to bulk buy. It is also on sale via Amazon where many of the positive reviews appear to be fake.
DNA Lean Thermo XX may cause numerous side effects. First up you should avoid if you are trying to conceive because Uva Ursi is known to cause miscarriage. You should also avoid if you have any issues around heart and blood pressure.
Reported side effects include shortness of breath, migraine, dizziness, heartburn.
Other side effects may include increased heart rate, palpitations, increase in blood pressure, anxiety, agitation, and the onset of menstrual bleeding.
Huperzine A is known for a wide range of side effects and at this massive dose (hopefully a typo) side effects may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, sweating, blurred vision, muscle cramps, muscle twitching.
DNA Lean Thermo XX contains diuretics so may lead to dehydration. Symptoms of dehydration include dry mouth, fatigue, dizziness, heart palpitation, confusion, fainting, inability to sweat or urinate, weight loss, and fever.
DNA Lean Thermo XX is expensive. Buy from the official website and it costs £29.99 for 60 capsules. This is sufficient for between 15-30 days supply.

You can also buy Thermo XX via Amazon where it costs £29.99 for 1 x bottle of 60 capsules.
We do not rate DNA Lean Thermo XX at all. In our opinion, this supplement looks pretty dangerous and seems to be designed to work in the same way as old-fashioned supplements that contained amphetamines – i.e. increase energy, sharpened mood, and a decrease in appetite and feelings of anxiety. None of this will cause sustainable weight loss and the side effects could be dangerous for some users. Despite the misleading product information that claims this supplement to be safe, the ingredients list tells a different story.
Further concerns include the lack of a money-back guarantee and the dodgy looking feedback that according to scam software, indicates a high level of deception.
Overall, we do not recommend DNA Lean Thermo XX to the Watchdog readers.

DNA Lean Thermo XX is a fat burner aimed only at women. The principle ingredient is the stimulant Citrus Aurentium, a type of orange variety which contains a stimulant chemical synephrine. There is also dandelion extract which will increase urination, so may help the loss of water weight. There is green tea extract and other herbals including gingko Biloba, Acai berry, Meadowsweet, and a plant extract called Uva Ursi. Many of these ingredients show up in weight loss supplements for both men and women, but according to the product information, the addition of diuretics dandelion and Uva Ursi will help remove the problem of water retention which is more usually experienced by women.
With Uva Ursi, you will need to ensure that you are not pregnant or trying to conceive because this herbal ingredient is known to promote menstrual bleeding, and has been used as a method to induce a miscarriage. Check out the ingredients tab and the side effects tab to find out more.
DNA Lean Thermo XX has clear ingredients information with the quantities of each component clearly marked and an explanation about what the ingredients are and what they do. However, some of the customer information is misleading because of the unmentioned risk of side effects. In addition the Huperzine A content is stated at 50mg a serving whereas in general, only 50mcg is a usual serving. Is this a typo? Or is it true? Either way, this brings up some major concerns about the ingredients and the company.
Serving size is equal to two capsules so if you take one serving a day, your bottle will last you 30 days. However, the directions state that you can take 2 servings a day which means that it will only last 15 days.
DNA Lean Thermo XX is on sale via the official DNA Lean website. The company is based in Sheffield and provides full contact details including address, phone number; 0845 8629928, and email. DNA Lean supplements are also on sale via Amazon and some independent retailers who specialise in bodybuilding supplements.
According to the product information, there are four phases to this supplement. This means that the ingredients list is broken up into different sections. However, it is important to remember that this is just one capsule, not four separate products!
Phase 1 – Thermo-XX Lipolytic Stimulating Matrix. This “complex of ingredients is designed to stimulate the breakdown of stored body fat”
Phase 2 – H2O Balance: Specifically for women because “Due to hormonal and biological differences between men and women, it is common for women to retain excess water causing bloating”
Phase 3 – Thermogenic Fat Incinerating Factors: Designed to increase body temperature thereby assisting to burn off free circulating fatty acids broken down by the lipolytic stimulating matrix.
Phase 4 – Cognitive Amplifying Factors: This part of the formula contains herbal ingredients which are supposed to sharpen mental concentration in order to keep you focused on your weight loss goals.
DNA Lean Thermo XX comes with the claims that this supplement is safe, but side effects are likely to be an issue with many users. Citrus Aurantium is known to increase heart rate and blood pressure and is a banned substance in many sporting authorities as an illegal stimulant. We also have major concerns about the Huperzine A content which is listed as a massive 50mg per serving, in place of the more usual 50mcg – again side effects could be an issue.
When it comes down to the big question, “does it work?”, well – it might work! If you take a supplement that makes you feel sick and wired, it will probably reduce your appetite so you may lose weight that way. In addition, if you are urinating more frequently, you may find you lose water weight so show up lighter on the scales for a while.
But in our opinion, DNA Lean Thermo XX is not a safe supplement. Making yourself feel ill, queasy, or wired is not a sustainable method of losing weight. In addition, we can’t see the point of the Cognitive Amplifying Factors in this supplement. There is nothing here that is going to boost mood, just alertness.
DNA Lean Thermo XX is a fairly old-fashioned fat burner that seems to have tried to replicate the effects of amphetamines in legal form but will cause many of the same sorts of side effects.
Some customers have mentioned side effects and these are in line with the ingredients list. Reported side effects include:
Other side effects may include:
Huperzine A is known for a wide range of side effects and at this massive dose (hopefully a typo), side effects include:
Diuretics can lead to dehydration. Symptoms of dehydration include:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant, breast feeding or trying to conceive. Speak to your doctor before use if you have an underlying medical condition or are taking prescription medication. Cease use in the case of side effects and if necessary take medical advice. Remember to take the bottle of capsules with you.
There are 26 customer reviews for DNA Lean Thermo XX on Amazon at the time of writing but according to scam software, there is a high percentage of fake reviews and a high level of deception going on.
These two positive reviews appear to have been written by the same person!!
I personally use the dna lean thermo-xy because they are they best fat burner on the market, so I bought some of the thermo-xx for my wife, needless to say she loves them as they helped her lose an extra 5lbs and smash her goal weight which has eluded her for so long. You really cannot beat the dna lean products, first class results
I was a bit dubious about buying a weight loss supplement, this is actually the first one I have ever used. Needless to say it will be the only weight loss supplement I ever use – it’s incredible! It really makes me hot and sweaty on my morning walk around the cold park. I lost 3 pounds in my first week alone and really feel that it makes fat burning easy, it’s great stuff.
There are three negative reviews. All mention side effects.
Felt ok initially but after day 2, massive migraine, dizziness and shortness of breath.
Didn’t lose any weight and gave me awful heartburn
I ordered the product a month ago, started my last week and frankly I can’t say that it is working. Gave me heartburn but nothing else.
There is no money-back guarantee.
You can buy Thermo XX direct from the DNA Lean website. It is also available via Amazon UK, as well as from some UK based independent bodybuilder retailers.
