What Does JetFuel Accelerator Claim To Do?
According to Bodybuilding.com, Jetfuel Accelerator offers:
- Stimulant-free fat-loss support
- Advanced Appetite Regulation Support
- Nutrient Partitioning and Healthy-Aging Support
So What Is JetFuel Accelerator and What Are The Ingredients?
Jetfuel accelerator has several proprietary formulas that make up its ingredients list, and so there are no individual ingredient quantities provided. Each serving size of 3 capsules contains the following ingredients:
- Niacin 200% RDA: Niacin, is responsible for helping to produce energy from consumed food, as well as helping keep the nervous and digestive systems healthy. Niacin can be easily sourced in adequate amounts from a balanced diet. Persistent excessive consumption of niacin has been linked with increased rates of obesity in American Children.
- Vitamin B6 500% RDA: Vitamin B6 has several important functions in the body, including ‘allowing the body to use and store energy from protein and carbohydrates in food’. Whilst taking excess amounts of vitamin B6 will not infinitely improve this ability, a deficiency could make it more difficult to lose weight. Vitamin B6 is naturally present in a wide variety of foods, including meat, cereals, bread and vegetables, and is often included in fortified breakfast cereals.
Jetfuel Appetite regulation support actives (550 mg)
- Gama-trimethyl-beta-acetylbutyrobetaine: More commonly known as Acetyl-L-Carnitine. Supplementation of this ingredient has been found to slightly improve fat oxidation.
- Bilineurine bitartrate: More commonly known as choline, it is available naturally in many of the foods we eat, and can also be made in the liver. Athletes sometimes use it as a supplement to delay fatigue and improve endurance. However, there is little clinical evidence to suggest that this effect is significant.
- Hoodia gordonii proprietary blend [hoodia gordonii 20:1 cactus extract, Hoodia gordonii powder]: This plant extract was eaten traditionally in the South African bush to stave off hunger, but there is almost no clinical evidence that actually proves that it works. The largest study in humans only used 7 participants, making research preliminary and inconclusive at best.
- Mucuna puriens seed extract (50% l-dopa): A bean like plant that has traditionally been used in Ayurvedic medicine. It is used for treating anxiety, amongst other things. However, there is little clinical evidence to support its use: the active ingredient is levodopa (l-dopa), which can affect the levels of dopamine in the brain. However, most L-dopa is broken down in the body before it can reach the brain, unless combined with specific chemicals that are not present in Mucuna Pruriens.
- Non-GMO Crocus Sativus (saffron) stigma extract (NLT 1.34% safranal by UV-Vis and providing crocin and picrocrocin): There have been some studies into saffron extracts that suggest it could help to reduce the appetite, reducing snacking and therefore boost weight loss. However, the extract used here does not seem to be the branded extract that has been studied, and so it is impossible to know if it will have the same effects on the body and appetite.
Jetfuel Pro-Lopolytic Support Actives (170 mg)
- Raspberry Ketone 99%: Raspberry ketone is the part of a raspberry (and other fruits) that provides the distinctive smell of raspberries. Whilst it can be extracted from the fruit, especially for use in food flavourings and perfume production, it is much cheaper to synthesize it in a lab, especially for the large quantities that are required for use in raspberry ketone supplements. Whilst there is a small amount of evidence that raspberry ketone can cause weight loss in rats, there have never been any human trials on the potential weight loss effects of raspberry ketone. The safety of using such large quantities of raspberry ketone has also never been fully researched.
- Commiphora mukul stem and resin (NTL 99% guggulsterones): More commonly known as Guggul, this extract is taken from the sap of a tree native to India. Currently, evidence that Guggul is useful for weight loss is preliminary, with mixed results from the few trials already conducted upon it, with some suggesting that Guggul has no effect upon weight loss, whilst other suggest its effect is moderate.
- Resveratrol: This ingredient is a type of polyphenol, an antioxidant, which is found naturally in the skin of red grapes, as well as some other plant sources. Resveratrol has been found to help prevent insulin resistance, and so indirectly could have implications for weight loss in some patients. However, as yet this has not been confirmed conclusively through clinical trials. It is thought that antioxidants in general promote general health and wellness.
- Capsicum frutescens fruit extract (60,000 heat units): Capsaicin is found in Cayenne pepper and is thought by some to play a role in weight loss. Some studies suggest it could suppress the appetite mildly, whilst others suggest that the heat causes a thermogenic reaction in the body, burning more calories for a period of time. However, there are also studies that show cayenne has little or no effect upon weight loss attempts.
Jetfuel oil-infused rapid delivery system (120 mg)
- Sodium starch glycolate
- Medium-chain triacylglycerols (MCTs)
- Xanthaurine: Also known as Quercetin, this polyphenol is thought to reduce blood pressure and reduce LDL cholesterol. The manufacturers of Jetfuel Accelerator state that this has been added to ‘to enhance the bioavailability of resveratrol’.
- Naringoside: A compound found in grapefruits that accounts for its bitter taste, it is known to extend the amount of time that caffeine remains in the body- there is no caffeine in this diet pill, but caffeine is commonly drunk in the forms of tea, coffee and soft drinks. Research also suggests that Naringin enhances lipid (fat) metabolism in the body, which again could have positive implications for dieters.
So What Does All This Mean?
There are a large number of ingredients in this diet pill, with the company choosing to use chemical names to make some ingredients seem more unusual or exclusive to this product.
There are some ingredients that seem to affect mood in a way that may minimise emotional eating and may help to reduce cravings for snacks. Others appear to improve fat oxidation and improve insulin sensitivity. Because there are varying amounts of clinical evidence for each ingredient, it is fairly difficult to establish how strong and effective Jetfuel Accelerator will be- some ingredients such as raspberry ketone are completely untested in humans. Others such as Guggul have incredibly mixed results from studies, but at best have moderate weight loss effects.
Does JetFuel Accelerator Have Any Side Effects?
Some of the ingredients used in this diet pill could cause side effects. However, as the product contains no stimulants, this product may be less likely to cause serious side effects than other metabolism boosters.
Commiphora mukul (Guggul) can cause stomach upset, headaches, nausea, vomiting, loose stools, diarrhoea, belching, and hiccups.
Supplementing large quantities of acetyl-L-Carnitine can cause stomach upset, nausea, vomiting, and restlessness. It can also cause a “fishy” odour of the urine, breath, and sweat when supplemented in larger quantities that are usually found in capsule form.
Mucuna Pruriens can cause nausea and abdominal bloating, vomiting and occasionally insomnia. Resveratrol could interact with blood thinning medications such as warfarin. Saffron can cause dry mouth, anxiety, dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, change in appetite, and headache.
Some of the ingredients used may have side effects that are as yet unknown, such as raspberry ketones and hoodia products.
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Not suitable for those under the age of 18.
Not suitable for diabetics or people who are on medications for blood pressure.
If in doubt about the suitability of this product consult your doctor before purchase.
Any JetFuel Accelerator Reviews From Customers?
There are a few reviews of Jetfuel Accelerator on bodybuilding.com- these are overall high ratings, although not all customers who have rated the product have left full reviews. It also appears that some of the positive reviews are for other products from the same manufacturer.
Below is the only positive review that expressly mentions Jetfuel accelerator.
I take Saffron Extract by itself when dieting, but tried the accelerator recently stacked with the JetFUEL T-300 and I really enjoyed it.
There is also one negative review for the product:
Worse fat burner ever made me sick.
However, as there are so few reviews of the product, and only a few more ratings, it is difficult to establish whether these reviews are at all representative of customers in general.
So Does JetFuel Accelerator Work?
Based on the positive reviews it seems that some people are happy with the product, but there is some confusion between products, with customers also reviewing other products from the Jetfuel range.
The ingredients list is long and mixed, with some ingredients having strong clinical support whilst others have very little, especially in humans. There appears to be a strong focus towards appetite suppression, with some other ingredients also aiding fat oxidation and improving the mood of the consumer.
However, with no ingredient quantities provided it is difficult to establish just how strong this product actually is, or how effective it is.
Where Can I Buy JetFuel Accelerator?
From teamgat.com, the manufacturers of JetFuel Accelerator, a single bottle of 120 capsules costs $49.99, plus delivery. The company only ships within the USA, with delivery costs depending upon the customer’s location.
The same product, in the same sized bottle of 120 capsules, is also sold through third party retailer bodybuilding.com, at the much cheaper price of $23.61 plus delivery.
What About A Guarantee
There is no money-back guarantee from Team GAT, the manufacturers of JetFuel Accelerator. For dietary supplements, products can be returned within 30 days of purchase- customers will receive a full refund for unopened items in the original form of payment and merchandise credit for opened items. The products must be received by the company within the 30-day returns period to qualify for a return.
Overall, despite the manufacturer claiming that this is a very strong product, we are not totally convinced. Some of the ingredients have very little or no clinical support whilst others only have a minimal effect upon fat burning or appetite control. Also, with no ingredient quantities provided, it is impossible to tell how strong Jetfuel Accelerator really is.
We do also find it bordering on deception that some of the ingredients have been described using chemical names, making them sound more exclusive and making them harder to research. Whilst there are no stimulant ingredients in this diet pill, there are ingredients that can cause a range of side effects, which consumers should be aware of before purchasing.
In addition to all of these problems with the product, there is no money-back guarantee, although customers may be covered by the returns policy if they post their return early enough.
Overall, whilst the product has some ingredients that may aid weight loss and suppress the appetite, it is still not good enough for us to approve.
