Matrix T5 Inferno

Diet pill ingredients are subject to different regulations across international boundaries. For example, whilst ephedrine is banned in diet pills in the USA, Germany and a few other countries, it is still legal in the UK. Many diet pill manufacturers have replaced ephedrine with safer but weaker ingredients because of the dangers of using the ingredient, even when they are not legally required to do so. Others, like Matrix T5 Inferno, still include ingredients that are natural sources of ephedrine, but fail to explain to customers that this is one of the reasons they call their diet pill the ‘strongest fat burner available’.

Below we take an in-depth look at Matrix T5 Inferno to see just how effective it really is.

Matrix T5 Inferno Facts

  • Manufactured by Matrix Nutrition
  • 120 capsules per bottle
  • Not suitable for competing athletes/bodybuilders

Matrix T5 Inferno is a fat burning stimulant based diet pill manufactured by Matrix Nutrition, a UK company. Matrix Nutrition state that since they were established in 2007,

Our mission has been to provide you, the customer with superb quality effective sport supplements and accessories at an affordable price. We are a small, dedicated and knowledgeable team working in the UK, where all our own-brand Matrix Nutrition products are prepared, packaged and despatched directly to you.

Whilst it is not well promoted by Matrix Nutrition, Matrix T5 Inferno contains Sida Cordifolia which contains ephedrine. This ingredient has been banned from being used in diet pills in a number of countries, including the United States and Germany, where it is only available on prescription.

Ephedrine was banned because of the huge number of side effects that are associated with its use, and the number of heart attacks, strokes and deaths that were reported. Whilst the ingredient is still legal in the UK and its use in diet pills goes on unregulated, we cannot recommend Ephedrine based products to our readers, because of concerns for safety.

How to Take Matrix T5 Inferno

Regular Use – Take one (1) tablet daily upon waking with breakfast.

Hardcore Use – Take one (1) tablet in the morning upon waking with breakfast.

Then consume one (1) tablet 4 hours+ later.


If consumers are ordering the product from abroad, they also run the risk of the product being confiscated at customs, especially if Ephedrine is banned in the destination country. Competing athletes and bodybuilders should not take Ephedrine, as its use is banned by many athletic associations and sporting groups. Customers who take Ephedrine could therefore be banned from competitive sport.

Matrix T5 Inferno Concerns:

  • No money back guarantee
  • Contains a source of Ephedrine
  • Numerous possible side effects

What Does Matrix T5 Inferno Claim To Do?

The manufacturers described Matrix T5 Inferno as follows:

Matrix T5 Inferno is a more powerful, balanced, and intelligent version of its illustrious predecessor the T5-XT. Inferno contains all the fat burning strength but with ingenious additions including a Cortisol Control Complex which helps to preserve your hard earned muscle tissue and a revolutionary Thyroid Activity Stimulation Matrix.

They list the following benefits of the product:

  • Strongest fat burner available
  • Inferno thermogenic blend
  • Additional cortisol control & thyroid activity properties

So What Is Matrix T5 Inferno and What Are The Ingredients?

There is a long list of ingredients that are present in Matrix T5 Inferno. Many of the individual ingredient quantities are provided, although there are several small proprietary blends used as well.

Because of this breakdown of the ingredient quantities, it is possible to see that there are some significant quantities of strong ingredients used in Matrix T5 Inferno. Each serving of a single tablet contains the following ingredients and ingredient quantities:

Inferno Burning Blend

Cortisol Control Complex (50mg)

Thyroid Activity Stimulation Matrix (50mg)

So What Does All This Mean?

There is a wide variety of ingredients used in this diet pill. Many of them have side effects, as detailed below, especially Sida Cordifolia and Bitter Orange extract. These two ingredients are the strongest fat burning stimulant ingredients used in this diet pill, although it is the opinion of many medical professionals that their use to aid weight loss is not worth the risk of serious side effects and even death.

Green tea and caffeine are also known to aid weight loss by increasing thermogenesis and stimulating the metabolic rate of the body. These are less strong, and their effects are described as small but significant, but the side effects associated with their use are much less severe. Rhodiola, Ashgawandha, Coleus Forskohlii, Reishi Mushroom and Olive Leaf extract are not weight loss aids, but have other benefits that may aid dieters and regular exercisers.

Does Matrix T5 Inferno Have Any Side Effects?

There is a long list of ingredients used in Matrix T5 Inferno, and many of these ingredients are associated with unpleasant and even dangerous side effects. Consumers should take the risk of these side effects occurring seriously, and consider how their own health may factor into the risk of side effects occurring before purchasing this diet pill.

Side effects associated with the use of Bitter orange extract include increased heart rate and increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, fainting, and even heart attack and stroke in healthy patients. The Mayo Clinic has recommended avoiding use of Bitter orange extract because in their opinion, the risk of using the product is not worth the pay-off of some weight loss that could be achieved using other means. Consumers should remember that the effects of Bitter orange extract are enhanced when combined with caffeine.

Caffeine can lead to headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness and insomnia.

Sida Cordifolia has been banned in the USA because it is a natural source of ephedrine, a stimulant deemed too dangerous for unregulated use. It can cause a huge variety of side effects including dizziness, restlessness, irritability, insomnia, headache, lack of appetite, nausea, vomiting, flushing, tingling, difficulty urinating, and pounding heartbeat.

More serious side effects have been associated with ephedrine, and therefore could be caused by consumption of Sida Cordifolia. These include high blood pressure, heart attacks, muscle disorders, seizures, strokes, irregular heartbeat, loss of consciousness, and death. Similar to how caffeine and bitter orange interact for greater effect when used together, the use of Sida Cordifolia alongside other stimulants such as caffeine and bitter orange greatly increases the chances of side effects occurring. Considering that Matrix T5 Inferno contains several sources of caffeine, as well as Sida Cordifolia and Bitter orange extract, the risk of side effects is high.

Reishi Mushroom consumption can cause dryness of the mouth, throat, and nasal area along with itchiness, stomach upset, nosebleed, and bloody stools. There are also concerns that consuming it in powdered form for longer than a month can cause toxic effects in the liver.

Guggul can cause a range of side effects, including stomach upset, headaches, nausea, vomiting, loose stools, diarrhoea, belching, and hiccups. Guggul can also cause allergic reactions such as rash and itching. Guggul can also cause skin rash and itching that is not related to allergy.

Not suitable for use by those under the age of 21.

Not suitable for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Not suitable for anyone with any cardiac related health issues, including high blood pressure.

If unsure about the suitability of this diet pill, consult your doctor before purchase.

If any side effects are noticed, especially heart palpitations or more serious side effects, cease use immediately.

Any Matrix T5 Inferno Reviews From Customers?

There are some customer reviews on the official website Matrix T5 Inferno. Unlike many other companies, Matrix Nutrition states that their reviews section is completely unbiased and truly independent.

Customers are contacted independently by Feefo two weeks after making their purchase and asked to rate and review our service and products. Unlike other review systems every customer comment is published, positive or negative, the result is truly independent customer feedback.

First class service fast delivery too.

First time using this product after using the normal T5’s so still early days but so far their easier to take and they seemed to cut cravings.

Don’t seem to be working even with upping the dose.

Only used the product for a week so far but small changes are beginning to show.

So Does Matrix T5 Inferno Work?

The ingredients list does suggest that Matrix T5 Inferno is a strong fat burner that will aid weight loss by significantly increasing the metabolism. This is mainly due to the presence of bitter orange, Sida Cordifolia, green tea, caffeine and guarana.

These ingredients will also significantly boost the consumer’s energy levels. However, some of these ingredients are associated with a significant number of side effects, some of which are incredibly serious and even life threatening. Whilst the chances of death are still relatively small, consumers should be aware that Ephedrine has caused heart attacks in previously healthy consumers in the past. Customers with health issues should consult their doctor before purchase to assess the suitability of this product for them.

As well as the above listed stimulant ingredients, Matrix T5 Inferno has a number of ingredients that are either indirectly related to weight loss, or not very effective at aiding weight loss. Olive leaf extract may affect cholesterol levels, whilst rhodiola may improve endurance.

Ashwagandha may alter cortisol levels, which may have an impact upon the ease of weight loss and relieve food cravings for some people (provided their weight gain is directly caused by stress and raised cortisol levels).

Where Can I Buy Matrix T5 Inferno?

From the official Matrix Nutrition website, Maxtrix T5 Inferno is available for £29.99 per bottle of 120 capsules, plus delivery charges. This will provide between a 60 and 120 day supply of the product, according to the directions for use.

Additional discounts are available, with the website stating:
‘Buy 2, save 5%’ and ‘Buy 3, save 7.5%.’

The product can also be purchased from Mail Shop for £29.99 per bottle, plus delivery charges. Customers purchasing two or more bottles at once will pay £28.49 per bottle plus delivery charges.

What About A Guarantee

The product has no money-back guarantee, but unopened and unused products can be returned within 14 days of delivery for a refund.

Exchanges are also possible if consumers contact the company within 7 days of delivery to arrange their exchange. Faulty, damaged or incorrect products can be returned up to 30 days after delivery, although it can take up to 3 weeks for returns to be processed, and so we encourage customers to deal with returns as quickly as possible to avoid forgetting completely and to receive their money quicker.

Customers need to contact the company to arrange for the return of faulty, damaged or incorrect items.

Watchdog Verdict

Ephedrine is known to be a dangerous ingredient in diet pills, because of the high risk of side effects, as well as its proven link with a large number of deaths internationally. Therefore we cannot recommend any product that still contains a source of Ephedrine.

In this case, Matrix T5 Inferno does not even expressly mention to consumers that Sida Cordifolia is a source of Ephedrine; this lack of disclosure from the company is less than ideal. Even worse is that considering the huge number of side effects that can occur when consuming Matrix T5 Inferno, the company provides no warning or caution list about who should not use this product.

The product is not suitable for competing athletes or bodybuilders, thanks to regulations banning ehphedrine supplementation enforced by numerous sporting bodies. The numerous stimulant ingredients mean that it is also unsuitable for anyone with a heart related medical condition, including high blood pressure. There are also numerous ingredients that seem to be unrelated to weight loss.

There is no money-back guarantee offered by the manufacturers, and their returns policy is only 14 days from delivery.

Overall, it does seem that the product would aid weight loss, but we believe that the safety risk is too great to justify using Matrix T5 Inferno. Therefore we cannot recommend this diet pill to our readers.
