We take a look at Hyper T5 Fat Burners to find out more.
There are lots of diet pills on the market that claim to be “T5” fat burners and these days it often just means that the diet pill in question is strong and contains stimulants. However, the T5 type of supplement gets it name from the thyroid hormones.
The thyroid gland is the major gland in the endocrine (hormone) system and it controls how your body uses energy, your health levels, your well-being and your metabolism. In addition, the thyroid regulates other hormones such as leptin – the hormone that controls appetite.
T5 supplements are so called because they are believed to encourage the production of thyroid hormones Triiodothyronine (T3) and Thyroxine (T4) and as a consequence may help you burn off fat at a faster rate by increasing the speed of the metabolism. There is no hormone called T5 but a diet pill bearing this name is believed to specifically target the thyroid hormones.
According to the product information, Hyper T5 Fat Burners naturally stimulate your metabolism so that it works harder and although there is no mention of the thyroid hormones in the advertising, it seems likely to have a stimulant effect.
The active ingredients include caffeine and Guarana – two stimulant ingredients. Guarana is a South American fruit extract with high levels of caffeine.
Hyper T5 also contains Citrus Aurantium, which is also a strong stimulant that affects the central nervous system. Derived from bitter orange, this ingredient is natural but it can cause side effects including increasing the heart rate and blood pressure. It raises adrenaline levels so puts your body into fight or flight mode and can have an appetite suppressing effect as well.
There are health concerns about Citrus Aurantium and this ingredient (and supplement) will not suit you if you have any medical issues related to heart or blood pressure.
In addition, Hyper T5 Fat Burners contains Green tea extract, rich in antioxidants such as ECGC and polyphenols that protect the cells from damage and helps maintain health. As an added advantage for weight loss, increased antioxidants can also increase the metabolism.
The final major ingredient is Acetyl L Carnitine an amino acid compound that is produced in the body (as well as taken in supplement form) and is essential for energy and mental performance.
We would have liked to have seen a label or an ingredients list for this supplement, especially as it contains so many stimulants, but unfortunately, this information is not provided.
This makes it hard for the customer to assess the strength and whether or not Hyper T5 fat Burners will be suitable. Here at the Watchdog, we often complain about the practice of lumping all the ingredients in a pill together and calling it a proprietary blend but Hype T Fat Burners does not even do this.
There is no ingredients total per capsule so apart from the explanations provided in the advertising, you will really have no idea just what you are taking. The lack of information about Hyper T5 Fat Burners is less than impressive.
You are supposed to take the capsules twice a day. However, there is little information about how and when to take the capsules. It is unclear whether one capsule is equal to one serving or how many you should take each day.
Hyper T5 Fat Burners do not provide any information about the company behind the product. You can only contact them by email and although they claim to be a UK company, there is no way of knowing whether this is even true.
There are other products in the range. You are advised to take Hyper T 5 Fat Burners in combination with two other supplements, Hyper Carb Blocker and Hyper Fat Blocker but there is no information about what these contain.
There are also other T supplements available. T6 Fat Burners – which contain many of the same ingredients as T5 as well as Konjac root and bladderwrack – two ingredients believed to help you feel full. You can also buy Hyper T9 Fat Burners, which contains diuretics such as dandelion and fennel.
There is no information about where the supplements are manufactured. They could be manufactured in the UK according to good manufacturing practices (GMP) but there again; they could be imported from China or elsewhere.
Without clear information, you have no guarantees about hygiene and safety during the manufacturing process.
According to the advertising,
Hyper T5 slimming tablets naturally stimulate your metabolism, so that it works harder. Consequently, you burn off more calories, resulting in rapid weight loss. Hyper T5 slimming pills are super strength T5s, so they work even quicker. The slimming pills taken only twice a day do all the hard work, so you do not have to!
All of the effects of each ingredient in our super strength T5 tablets combined, result in unbelievably fast weight loss. Of course it goes without saying that for health and well-being, you should still always maintain a healthy diet and still exercise too.
We agree with the last part of this statement. According to the information,
T5s are receiving rave reviews online from the many people who have tried them. All stating the obvious, that they cannot believe the amount of weight they have lost and in such a short space of time!
This statement would be more convincing if we could find some independent feedback from customers. In fact, none of the claims are backed up with a shred of evidence or real information.
Hyper T 5 Fat Burners are diet pills which are supposed to increase the speed of your metabolism. Serving size is unclear and a clear ingredients list is not provided so we cannot bring you a true picture of the sort of effects you can expect.
Without seeing the ingredients amounts contained in this supplement it is hard to know what the effects will be. The caffeine may give you an energy burst and the Citrus Aurantium may help this effect and decrease appetite. However, there may be side effects especially if contents are in high quantities.
We cannot see the point of mentioning Magnesium Stearate and Silica when the source of the polyphenols is not revealed. In addition, the ECGC is a constituent of green tea yet is included as a separate ingredient, which is odd.
As with most things with this supplement, some information is provided and explained but there are huge gaps in information which is not helpful for the customer.
There may be side effects. Despite the fact that the product advertising states,
There are no side effects whatsoever.
This statement is not actually true.
Some ingredients contained in this supplement such as Acetyl L Carnitine and green tea are safe even in high quantities but there are concerns about the stimulants especially Citrus Aurantium.
Potential side effects may include:
You have to be 18 years of age before you can take T5 tablets.
They are not recommended for use by women, who are pregnant, or for those who have just given birth and are breast-feeding.
According to the product information,
“It is also safe to take them alongside any other medication you may be on, although it is recommended in this instance that you have a chat with your doctor first.”
This is not true. It may not be safe to take these alongside other medication. It will not suit you if you are taking heart or blood pressure medication.
This will not be suitable if you suffer from a thyroid related medical condition, heart condition, high blood pressure, glaucoma or many other conditions.
Despite the claims in the advertising about rave reviews, we have been unable to locate one independent customer comment.
Unlikely. This supplement will probably perk you up because it contains caffeine but otherwise it is impossible to guess just what it will do.
Citrus Aurantium is an ingredient that needs to be handled with care. It contains synephrine, which has an effect upon adrenaline and can put your body into a stressed fight or flight response.
This response raises the heart rate and increases blood pressure so can increase the risk of stroke or heart attack. Will this help you lose weight? It might, short term because it reduces the appetite but it comes with health risks and is unlikely to lead to real weight loss.
Hyper T5 Fat Burners are not available from the shops. You can only buy Hyper T5 Fat Burners online from the product website. One bottle of Hyper T5 Fat Burners costs £19.99.
This is enough for one month’s supply. However, the capsule amount is not provided and the product advertising seems careful not to reveal the quantity.
You can also buy Hyper T5 Fat Burners in combination with two other supplements – the fat blocker and the carb blocker (1 months stack course). This costs £39.99 for a months supply.
Shipping costs are an added £1.99 to UK addresses. Overseas delivery does not seem to be on offer.
No guarantee on offer.
One of the worst points about Hyper T5 Fat Burners is the total lack of information. There is no ingredients list and amount quantities are not provided. There are no instructions about how and when to take this supplement. We are not even told where it is made or how many capsules are contained in each bottle.
Shockingly the product information does not provide any health warnings to customers. This supplement is not necessarily safe for everyone yet the product information claims that it is. This misleading information is potentially dangerous and extremely irresponsible.
We like some of the named ingredients but there is no way we could ever approve a diet pill with such huge gaps in information.
We would not take Hyper T5 fat burners ourselves and there is no way we would recommend them for any one else. This diet pill is just not good enough so it is an easy decision. We reject Hyper T5 Fat Burners.
