Below we take an in-depth look into LifePower Labs Metabolic Fire, to see why this discontinued, caffeine-based weight loss supplement was removed from the online market.
LifePower Labs Metabolic Fire is a thermogenic weight loss product, that appears to be no longer be available to buy online. Customer reviews suggests that the product was discontinued due to its potential to cause debilitating side effects, with one former customer commenting that they “thought they were having a heart attack”.
Metabolic Fire is manufactured by LifePower Labs, which appears to be a brand of a company called Infinity3. Although Infinity3 promote their founder, Jonathan Craddock, as a medical entrepreneur when it suits them, there is no real evidence to suggest that anyone in this “marketing group” has any knowledge of nutrition. The only claims to fame we could find online for LifePower Labs, is that the group has been blacklisted by the NFL due to its association with “banned substances”.
The caffeine content in Metabolic Fire is extremely high, and seems to be causing frequent issues for customers in the form of jitters, heart palpitations, and stomach aches. Experts recommend limiting your caffeine intake to 500mg a day, and 2 capsules of Metabolic Fire contains 400mg in a single hit. Customers should certainly avoid all other sources of caffeine whilst taking this potent supplement.
Hoodia gordonii also often causes headaches, nausea, increased blood pressure, and an increased heart rate. Caralluma Fimbriata may also cause stomach upset, intestinal gas, constipation, and stomach pain.
LifePower Labs Metabolic Fire is no longer available to purchase online, so we can only guess at its potential selling price in the remaining high street stores that sell it. When it was last sold online on eBay, Metabolic Fire cost $23.12 for a 60-capsule pack.
It’s never a good sign when a successful product like this is removed from sale, and a worse one when all customer reviews complain about side effects!
Metabolic Fire may work slightly as a weight loss aid, as caffeine can really help raise the body’s metabolic rate (all the other ingredients in the mix are frankly just window-dressing). Despite the effectiveness of caffeine, it can be rendered essentially useless if customers cannot stomach taking it due to side effects. Almost all customer reviews appeared to be dissatisfied for this simple reason.
If you stumble across this product in stores, we strongly recommend avoiding it entirely. You could probably enjoy the same effect by simply drinking several cups of coffee.

LifePower Labs Metabolic Fire is a weight loss supplement that claims have a thermogenic, fat-burning effect. Though seemingly no longer available to buy online, Metabolic Fire was sold as recently as 2016 on Amazon. All purchases used to come with a free e-book called the “Extreme Fat Loss Manifesto”.
Metabolic Fire is manufactured by a company called LifePower Labs, which appear to be a subsidiary of Infinity3 Marketing Group. Both companies are based in Virginia, USA, and are extremely hard to find good information on. The only fact we could find about LifePower Labs is that NFL athletes are currently banned from promoting or advertising their products, due to the company’s previous association with banned ingredients (although we are unsure as to what that association was). According to Metabolic Fire’s official packaging, the manufacturers can be contacted by telephone (540-588-8266) and email ([email protected]).
The directions for use are as follows:
Metabolic Fire is described as a thermogenic product, which means that it should raise the body’s metabolism and effectively help it to burn fat at a faster rate. As a major source of caffeine, the product also claims to boost focus and energy. The high fibre content is also said to act as an effective appetite suppressant, that can reduce food cravings and regulate blood sugar levels. Finally, the manufacturers also claim that the product has a diuretic effect (i.e. it makes you urinate more).
This product’s main ingredient is caffeine, which is thought to help with weight loss slightly when included in such high quantities. Most of the other effective ingredients we’ve seen on the label have clearly been included in such low quantities, that they are essentially useless (like the normally useful glucomannan). Most of the other ingredients are unproven or completely ineffective, so customers should expect all of the thermogenic, metabolism-boosting action to come from caffeine.
Unfortunately, the available customer reviews online generally describe Metabolic Fire as useless, mainly because its high potential for side effects appear to make it impossible to take regularly. As the product makes most people feel unacceptably sick, few want to try it for longer than a few days!
The ingredients included in LifePower Labs Metabolic Fire are listed below. Readers should note that most of the ingredient quantities are not listed on the product packaging or the Amazon sales page, which can make it difficult or impossible to estimate how effective the mix is overall. The ingredient quantities that are provided are correct for 1 capsule of Metabolic Fire.
Proprietary Blend 496mg
If taken as directed, Metabolic Fire has a fairly sizeable dose of caffeine, which can cause a range of side effects. Most customer reviews mention severe jitters, stomach aches, and heart palpitations.
High doses of caffeine can cause headaches, jitteriness, insomnia, an increased heartrate, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, and increased blood pressure. Customers that are extra sensitive to caffeine should consider avoiding this product altogether, or at least avoid other sources of caffeine whilst using it. Metabolic Fire contains a dose of theanine (presumably as a means of reducing the harmful effects of the caffeine), although the evidence of the customer reviews suggest that the theanine is not doing its job properly in this mix!
Participants in the sole reliable trial testing Hoodia Gordonii reported numerous, frequent side effects whilst using it. These side effects included headaches, nausea, vomiting, strange skin sensations, increased blood pressure, and increased heart rate. Hoodia is also well-known for causing liver damage, a problem that worsens over time.
Caralluma Fimbriata might cause some side effects such as stomach upset, intestinal gas, constipation, and stomach pain.
Do not exceed recommended dose. This product is not intended for pregnant or nursing mothers, children under the age of 18, or individuals taking prescription drugs. Discontinue use immediately if nausea, sleeplessness, or nervousness occur. Do not take this product if you have a known medical condition including high blood pressure, diabetes, any cardiovascular disorder, heart disease, hyperthyroidism, or are taking antidepressant medications. If you have any questions about the advisability of taking this product, consult your physician prior to use. This product is manufactured and packaged in a facility which may also process milk, soy, wheat, egg, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, and crustacean shellfish.
Although LifePower Labs Metabolic Fire is no longer available to buy online, many old customer reviews from 2014-2016 can still be found on the expired Amazon page. The customer reviews clearly show why the product was discontinued in the first place; almost all verified reviews complained of severe side effects, with most proving so problematic that the dieters couldn’t continue using the product.
I took this twice. Got incredibly nauseous both times. Sick for several hours each time. I am in very good condition and only wanted to lose 5 lbs. Honestly this is the worst product I have ever purchased.
The product got here fast, but unfortunately it didn’t work for me. It made me sick and feel lousy.
Bothered my stomach
Haven’t seen any difference.
Ok, I’ve tried sooo many pills and didn’t have a darn thing happen. THESE WORK!!! I’ve gotten into the habit of taking one when I wake up, before waking my 3 yr old and getting her ready for school. By time we leave the house, the pill has kicked in and I’m full of energy!! I’m not one to overeat, but I do notice that my appetite has changed with this pill and my energy has tremendously boosted. BUT……. I’d advise you not to drink coffee or caffeine while taking these pills. I accidently took this pill with my morning coffee and thought I was having a heart attack! LOL
Metabolic Fire is no longer available to purchase online, and it is doubtful that LifePower Labs ever offered a money back guarantee to protect consumers (we haven’t found any evidence of one on the Amazon page). If you find it in stores and are interested in purchasing it, always make sure to enquire about your right to return for a full refund.
LifePower Labs Metabolic Fire is no longer available to buy online, although you may find it on sale in some high street supplement stores or health food stores. On an old eBay page, a bottle of 60 capsules costs $23.12, so we imagine that the price is similar in stores.
