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.
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 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.
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.
One bottle costs $34.99 from the official website.
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 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.
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.
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.

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.
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:
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.
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,
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,
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.
Man Scorch has no money-back guarantee.
