Havasu Nutrition Premium Fat Burner makes ambitious claims about its ability to block carbs and suppress your appetite. The fact they say it is an extra strength, advanced formula, raises some alarm bells about its potential efficacy. The Diet Pills Watchdog will investigate if the ingredients really have the capability to boost your metabolism, and shift that extra tire around your middle.
Containing a variety of ingredients, some of which you may never have heard of, it is unsurprising that you may be bamboozled by possible pseudo-science. But is there some truth in their ability to help you lose weight?
Garcinia Cambogia, a tropical fruit also known as the Malabar tamarind, is a popular weight loss supplement found in a variety of health stores. The key to its apparent success comes from the fruit’s rind, where hydroxycitric acid, or HCA, is found. This ingredient is said to suppress appetite and act as a barrier to the enzyme your body uses to produce fat.
It also contains CLA, known as conjugated linoleic acid, a form of Omega-6 fatty acid that is thought to help shift stubborn fat and build lean muscle, alongside a balanced diet and exercise plan.
Fatty acids of the omega, 3, 6, and 9 varieties, usually found in foods such as flaxseed, sunflower seeds, hemp, oily fish, and nuts have been long lauded for their role in controlling weight and insulin levels. They are foods that are typically not present in the western diet and so are more readily replaced with a supplement.
Free from preservatives, sugars, and artificial ingredients, this product claims to be an all natural solution to increasing your slumping energy levels and is manufactured in accordance with the USA Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Possibly one of the most serious side effects is from the Garcinia Cambogia, which was highlighted by the FDA in 2009 as being responsible for causing serious liver damage and people were advised to stop taking it immediately. Although this was later not proven outright, it has left a major cloud over this ingredient. For those with an existing condition, it could be very serious. Other side effects from it can include dizziness, headache, upset stomach, and a dry mouth.
Similar symptoms are reported from the use of CLA, but it is largely thought to be safe when consumed in food and possibly safe as part of a supplement. However, it is recommended that advice is sought from your GP if you are taking any medicines to thin the blood or if you have diabetes. It can also make metabolic syndrome worse and should be avoided completely.
The Havasu Nutrition Premium Fat Burner retails at $15.75 for one bottle of 60 capsules on Amazon, and is on sale for $15.99 from the Havasu Nutrition website. This will provide 30 servings, with two capsules taken daily.

Whilst some of the ingredients have gained credibility for their health benefits and could have some impact on weight loss by blocking the absorption of carbohydrates and boosting energy, it is hard to say if it is as effective as the results from an improved eating and exercise programme. Not forgetting that they can cause some unpleasant side effects, with some users experiencing stomach upset, dry mouth, and nausea.
Fatty acids are certainly thought to be beneficial and not readily found in the typical western diet, but they are only effective when consumed in balance with omega 3, 6, and 9, and this supplement only contains omega 6. If your diet is high in hidden vegetable oils found in processed foods, it may lead to unbalanced fatty acid levels and health problems.
The manufacturers are suspiciously quiet about the side effects of these ingredients and do not provide enough warning to those with serious medical conditions. By playing up the ‘pure’ message they are potentially luring people into thinking this is an entirely safe product, which simply may not be the case.
Overall, we do not recommend Havasu Nutrition Premium Fat Burner to our readers.

Manufactured in the USA under laboratory conditions, this company at first glance appears to be one of the better diet outfits out there. There is some scientific testing of the products and the lab conditions are FDA approved.
However, the dubious ‘extra fat burning’ and ‘advanced’ and ‘pure’ marketing claims cast some shadow over the credibility. Whilst the supplement contains some active ingredients which are known to have weight loss, appetite suppressant, and energy-boosting benefits, the quantities may not be significant enough to have a marked benefit.
Those that are contained in higher dosage also carry some risk for those with existing medical concerns, and may interact poorly with other medications. Havasu promotes the use of several of their products together, but there is some concern about the potential to ‘overdose’ on some ingredients.
The supplement claims to be an all natural, extra strength formulation that will suppress your appetite, block carbs, and boost metabolism, leading to weight loss.
They say that this advanced formulation product can burn fat and will also have a positive effect on energy, supporting your existing weight loss plans.
It is possible that some benefit may be experienced from the ingredients, and Garcinia Cambogia has been known to have some impact on weight loss when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. However, very little research exists to support this and its reputation for causing liver damage makes us reluctant to recommend this product until further studies have been carried out.
One of the most compelling ingredients is the white kidney bean extract which is a form of highly resistant starch and carries carbohydrates through the large intestine, where it is fermented instead of being turned into sugar. However, the quantities required for this process to occur are not present in this formula.
The manufacturer does not list any possible side effects, but look out for:
Use as directed. Consult your physician if you are pregnant or nursing, or if you have a serious medical condition or are taking prescription medicines. For adult use only.
There are a significant number of reviews for this product, with most citing increased energy and appetite reduction as the most consistent benefits. Reviews mention it does not create a ‘jittery’ energy that other supplements can. There are also some positive reviews on weight loss, although most are using this product in conjunction with an improved eating and exercise plan. The increased fibre intake created more regular bowel movements in some, but it has been noted that it is vital to eat when taking this product to avoid nausea and stomach upset.
Havasu offers a 60-day money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied with the product.
