Man Scorch

Updated May 9, 2019.
Published Jan 29, 2015.

Man Scorch has been around for years now, and over that time it has amassed some loyal customers. It certainly isn’t the worst supplement we’ve seen, and the presence of green tea and caffeine makes for a good combination. But as with all stimulant-based products, there is a chance of side effects. The customer reviews are very mixed, with some claiming good results, whilst others saw no difference after taking this product.

Pros

  • Some good customer feedback
  • May help weight loss for some people

Cons

  • Could cause dangerous side effects such as heart attack or stroke
  • No money-back guarantee
  • High level of negative feedback
Man Scorch
Scorch is a diet pill that offers legendary fat loss and it claims to ignite thermogenesis as well as control your appetite too. It comes from US supplements company Man and with some eye catching yellow and black packaging proclaiming clinically dosed fat loss, it looks impressive at first glance.

According to the product information Scorch was formulated a decade ago. So, does this mean that this supplement is safe and effective? We take a look.

Man Scorch Overview

What you need to know about Man Scorch

Man Scorch has some good points. This supplement seems popular with customers and we like that it contains green tea and caffeine because this combination can be effective for weight loss for some people.

The evidence for stimulants and weight loss is largely unproven and will very much depend upon the individual, his or her physical make up, lifestyle and tolerance to stimulants.

What are the side effects of Man Scorch?

We do have concerns about safety. Stimulants, including caffeine at high levels and especially synephrine can be dangerous and although you can avoid certain things if you have a diagnosed medical condition, what if you are walking around with an undiagnosed medical condition? If this is you, this supplement could be very dangerous and increase the risk of stroke or heart attack.

Of course, it is a good idea to get a medical check up before you start a weight loss diet or begin a course of supplements like this, but we know that most people will not bother.

How much does Man Scorch cost?

One bottle costs $34.99 from the official website.

Man Scorch Key Features

Man Scorch is a fat burner weight loss supplement that according to the product information will increase your energy levels and metabolism as well as decrease your appetite all without any jitters or side effects.

It comes in the form of red capsules called thermo caps so there are no excuses for getting this supplement mixed up with anything else!

Man Scorch Key Points

  • Serving size is 3 capsules
  • Each bottle contains 168 capsules
  • Man Sports only provides a PO Box in Texas as an address

Man Scorch contains stimulants, Caffeine, and Synephrine both well-known ingredients and there is some evidence that taking stimulants will help weight loss. However there are problems with doing this and not everyone can take stimulants due to side effects. For example, you will need to avoid Man Scorch if you have a medical condition relating to heart, blood pressure or mental health. The supplement also contains Evodiamine – a herbal extract believed to be a natural thermogenic.

Man Scorch also contains two branded tea supplements P2 and Lean Green – made from Oolong tea and green tea respectively. Tea is high in antioxidants and studies have shown it can help increase weight loss as well as benefit health.

Other ingredients include a raspberry Ketone brand called RK, PEA – an amino acid deriviative which may increase focus and energy, ginger root extract that is claimed may act as an appetite suppressant, and Sulbutiamine – a synthetic molecule derived from thiamine or vitamin B1.

The final ingredient is a branded supplement called BioPerine – a black pepper supplement which may help increase the bioavailability of the other ingredients.

How to Take Man Scorch

Take 3 thermo-caps twice daily on an empty stomach, preferably first thing in the morning and in the afternoon.

Separate each dose of Scorch™ by at least 4 hours. Do not take past 4:00 PM as it may interfere with sleep.

Individuals sensitive to stimulants may want to begin usage with 1 to 2 thermo-caps 1 to 2 times daily to assess their tolerance.

Use for no longer than 8 weeks straight, followed by an off period of at least 2 weeks before resuming use.

Man Scorch is manufactured by Man Sports. According to the product information, all Man supplements are made by hand in small batches (micro batches) and adhere to a scrupulous testing process.

The company is based in Texas but although there is a photograph of the company door (which bears the Man logo), there is no real address. Instead, it is given as a PO Box in Mesquite. There is a phone number but it is toll free and non-geographic so we cannot tell where the company are really located. This is: 1(866) 343-7680.

Is the lack of a real address an issue? Not necessarily but we do like full transparency around company details, especially when we are expected to send them money.

Man Scorch Concerns:

  • The side effects. This supplement could be dangerous for some people
  • Lack of transparency about Man Sports.
  • May not help you lose weight. Many ingredients are unproven.

We have covered some Man supplements in previous reviews and although we did not add them to our approved list, felt they had some good points

These include Man CLA powder and Man REM PM – a supplement you take at night to ensure a good nights sleep.

What does Man Scorch claim to do?

According to the product information,

SCORCH Fat Burner from MAN Sports is a clinically dosed fat loss solution formulated to support big-time energy, appetite control & increased mental clarity.

This supplement is described as:

a combination of potent fat burning compounds and mood boosting energy blend” that “will have you feeling positive and ready to get shredded.

All this sounds good but there is no explanation about the clinical dose per serving which we would have liked.

Does Man Scorch work?

If you enjoy the stimulant buzz and use it to fuel your workout, you may find you lose weight. In addition, you may find that your appetite is decreased in the way as described.

There is evidence that stimulants and in particular the green tea/ caffeine combination can be effective for weight loss but a lot depends upon life style, and whether or not you are an habitual coffee / coke drinker or not. Ethnicity may play a role too,

Man Scorch Ingredients

Man Scorch contains many ingredients, including some stimulants so this supplement is not going to be safe for everyone. The advice is to start low and build up in order to gauge effects. Each serving is equal to 3 capsules.

  • Lean Green™ Green Tea (250 mg): Branded supplement made by US company PrimaForce and available as a supplement in its own right. Green tea is high in antioxidants and according to PrimaForce; this contains 90% polyphenols, 70% catechins and 60% EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate). Scientific studies suggest that green tea may help support weight loss and health but evidence is not conclusive.

  • P2™ Oolong Tea SE (250 mg): The P2 brand is popular in Russia and Eastern Europe but we cannot find out much about its background. However, Oolong tea in general is partially fermented so retains more natural antioxidants than black tea but less than green tea. Oolong tea is high in antioxidants called polyphenols and can promote energy and mental alertness.
    Source: http://oolong.co.uk/tea/
  • Caffeine (200 mg): Most diet supplements contain caffeine and it is ideal for giving you a quick energy boost. It can increase the speed of the metabolism and help fat burning but the effects are often short lived as you become accustomed to use. When used in combination with green tea it may enhance the fat burning effect. A cup of instant coffee contains around 100mg of caffeine so this serving size is the equivalent of just over two cups
  • PEA (Phenylethylamine) (150 mg): Derived from the amino acid phenylalanine, PEA is thought to increase alertness, aid in concentration and focus, and may also enhance mood. All traits that dieters need help with in succeeding with their weight loss attempts.
    Source: http://www.livestrong.com/phenylethylamine-for-weight-loss/
  • Isobutyryl Thiamine Disulfide (150 mg): Also known as Sulbutiamine (not to be confused with Sibutramine), this synthetic molecule is a variation of Thiamine. Preliminary studies have shown that it may decrease fatigue compared to a placebo.
    Source: http://examine.com/supplements/Sulbutiamine
  • RK™ Raspberry Ketones (125 mg): 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, it is much cheaper to synthesize in a lab, especially for the large quantities that are required for use in raspberry ketone supplements.
    There is a small amount of evidence that raspberry ketone can cause weight loss in rats but 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.
    Source: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/raspberry-ketones
  • Evodiamine 99% (50 mg): Natural chemical derived from a berry (Evodia Rutaecarpa) which is believed to increase body temperature and so help you burn off fat more easily. Evodiamine has been tested on animals but the anti obesity effects have not been seen in humans.
    Source: http://examine.com/supplements/Evodia+rutaecarpa/
  • Ginger Root (50 mg): Some studies suggest that ginger root is an appetite suppressant. One study used dried ginger powder to make a tea that participants drank with breakfast. Researchers found that satiety levels were much higher when the tea was consumed with breakfast, rather than just the breakfast on its own.
    Source: http://www.progressivehealth.com/ginger-for-weight-loss.htm
  • Synephrine 99% (20 mg): A review of numerous studies concluded that use of synephrine led to an increase to the participants resting metabolic rate and energy expenditure, and moderate weight loss was seen in studies lasting over 6 weeks. However, there are serious concerns about safety and side effects.
    Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22991491
  • Bioperine® (5 mg): Patented Black pepper extract used for increasing the bioavailability of nutritional compounds. In other words, it increases the amounts of nutrients that are absorbed into the body in the digestive tract.
    It may also increase the absorption of various drugs, which may lead to potential side effects.

Man Scorch Side Effects

Some of the ingredients will cause side effects and if you are sensitive to stimulants, you will need to avoid this supplement. As well as caffeine and synephrine, the tea supplements contain caffeine and effects may be enhanced by BioPerine.

In addition, many of the other ingredients lack human clinical testing and safety information and even more worryingly, this combination of ingredients has never been evaluated.

Potential side effects may include:

  • Anxiety
  • Headaches
  • Jitteriness
  • Fainting
  • Dizziness
  • Heart palpitations
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Increase in blood pressure
  • Nausea
  • Increased risk of heart attack
  • Increased risk of stroke.
Caution:

Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if pregnant or breast feeding. Do not take if you are predisposed to high blood pressure or any cardiovascular problems. Speak to your doctor first if you are taking prescription medication in case of interactions.

Do not use with alcohol, other stimulants such as caffeine, anti-depressants or MAO Inhibitors.

Man Scorch Customer Feedback

According to the product information, Man Scorch has been in production for 10 years so it is surprising that there is not one customer review posted on the Man website.

However, we did manage to locate some customer reviews on a bodybuilding website and we found that opinion was mixed.

Some customers were extremely satisfied. This person wrote;

Gives me energy without burnout. I have enough energy to workout and still go to work. Best fat burner ever…

Many customers have stacked Scorch with other supplements so it is difficult to assess the true effects of scorch alone. A typical user wrote,

I got to log this with my stack. Scorch gave me plenty of energy with no crash. It worked well to raise my body temp as labelled.

This man felt that the appetite suppressing effect was especially helpful,

I’ve taken the pills for about a week and have lost 4kg- most of this will of course be water weight and only time will tell how effective this product is. My high rating is due to the lack of hunger I am feeling while on my deficit and the increased energy the pills give.

Scorch seems to be popular with body builders,

Great product to take while on a cut. Provides a massive amount of energy throughout the day, and you can feel the thermogenic effects all day long. It will help you melt the fat,

And,

Smooth, clean, consistent energy with a well-rounded profile. No crash or jitters. I like the inclusion of PEA as a nootropic as well

Some users were disappointed,

Don’t waste your money, this product did absolutely nothing for me,

Another wrote,

I didn’t notice any difference using this product. I didn’t feel any different while taking it. I would not recommend this product.

Other customers have said the same.

Despite the negative comments, this supplement obviously works for some people, but in our opinion, it all comes down to your tolerance of stimulants.

  1. Been using it for about 3 weeks now. No problem sleeping or any noticeable side effects. But no real remarkable results either.

    Overall: Meh…..
