Mini:Burn is a supplement attributed to Vicky Pattison, a reality TV personality from MTV’s Geordie Shore. To say that a celebrity name is attached to it, Mini:Burn is surprisingly affordable. Although it does seem to be more effective as a stimulant than a fat burner, as the most contains a fair bit of caffeine and some vitamins.

Mini Burn
Mini:Burn is a fat burner diet pill created by UK reality TV star Vicky Pattison. This supplement may help provide you with added energy and motivation. Will it help you lose weight too?

We take an in depth look at Mini:Burn to find out.

Mini:Burn Overview

What you need to know about Mini:Burn

We quite like Vicky Pattison’s Mini:Burn. For a fat burner, it looks very safe and we love the fact that it provides you with a vitamin boost too. However, the main effect will be from the stimulant boost of the caffeine, but do you really need to take a supplement for this?

It is possible that you could get these same results from simply drinking more caffeine, or taking a caffeine pill and taking a general vitamin pill.

We like the fact the ingredient amounts are clearly marked and, unless you struggle with caffeine, can see no obvious dangerous side effects to this supplement.

However, the high levels of Niacin – your daily recommended intake in one serving – may cause side effects such as facial flushing, itchy skin and a burning sensation.

This effect is not dangerous but it is unpleasant and a very common side effect of niacin supplements.

What are the side effects of Mini:Burn?

There may be potential side effects and many of these will relate to caffeine, these may include jitteriness, anxiety, sleep disturbances, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, and headaches.

You may also notice side effects from Niacin such as itchy skin, burning sensation, and facial flushing.

How much does Mini:Burn cost?

One bottle of 60 capsules (30 servings and a month’s supply) costs £24.99. Shipping to UK addresses is an additional £3.99.

Mini:Burn Key Features

Mini:Burn is just one in a wide range of supplements designed by the popular MTV reality star Vicky Pattison and is designed to be used in combination with the other products in her Mini V Nutrition range.

You are also advised to use the supplements with a healthy diet and exercise programme. To make this easier – you can follow the Mini V Nutrition Diet Plan.

Mini:Burn Key Points

  • Mini:Burn designed by MTV star Vicky Pattison working with a nutritionist
  • Part of a range of supplements called the Mini V Nutrition range
  • Each serving contains the recommended daily allowance of many vitamins

Mini: Burn contains some caffeine rich ingredients such as coffee bean extract, green coffee, green tea, Kola and Gurana as well as a range of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. The idea is that this supplement will not only provide added energy via the caffeine but also offer some support to general health levels. In addition, it contains some diet pill favourites such as cayenne – believed to increase the speed of the metabolism and help weight maintenance.

At first glance this all looks pretty good. There is nothing contained in Mini: Burn that appears to be dangerous and we like that each ingredient of the diet pill is named along with the ingredient quantities.

The sum total of caffeine is also provided. Each serving contains 271 mg of caffeine derived from the various ingredients. Of course, if you are sensitive to caffeine this supplement will not suit you. You might think that a handful of vitamin tablets and a strong cup of coffee would probably do the same job but Mini: Burn looks better than that.

How to Take Mini:Burn

Take 2 capsules daily. Do not exceed recommended amount unless directed by a registered healthcare professional.

There is some evidence that amino acid Beta Alanine may help improve fatigue levels and vitamins such as Niacin and Pantothenic acid along with folic acid may contribute to keeping you feeling fit and healthy.

Green tea is rich in antioxidants and increasing antioxidant levels provides general health support as well as having the potential to increase the speed of the metabolism. Cayenne also may contribute to the speed of the metabolism.

Mini:Burn Concerns:

  • You may experience skin irritations as a result of taking Niacin (vitamin B3)
  • Not available in independent websites or shops, only direct from the product website
  • No independent customer opinion

Mini: Burn is part of the Mini V Nutrition range devised by reality TV star Vicky Pattison. Vicky Pattison appeared in the popular MTV show Geordie Shore – a UK spin off of the American show Jersey Shore based in Newcastle. (The name Geordie is the regional nickname and dialect given to people in the Tyneside area).

The Mini V Nutrition range includes supplements such as Mini: Collagen to improve elasticity and appearance of your skin, Mini: Detox – a hangover cure – the Geordie cast are well known for partying, Mini: Shake an on the go protein drink. There are also protein bars and a whey supplement.

According to Vicky Pattison, she has devised the supplements herself with the aid of a nutritionist.

What does Mini:Burn claim to do?

According to Vicky Pattison,

I created Mini: Burn because I wanted to make a powerful supplement that helped provide energy and motivation. The one biggest thing I find difficult when keeping in shape is motivation and Mini: Burn is designed to help that process. I also wanted a product that assisted well with weight loss. Mini: Burn will also speed up metabolism which in turn helps the weight loss process go faster.

The product information advises,

When used as part of a healthy diet and exercise regime, Mini: Burn can help support your exercise routines with increased metabolism and calorie burn.

And is,

A High Caffeine Supplement delivered via Natural Caffeine from Coffee Bean Extract, Green Coffee, Guarana, Cocoa and Kola with the additional support of Green Tea, Cayenne, Acetyl Carnitine, Bioperine® and Niacin.

There are no links to clinical evidence or any real proof. As usual with diet pills with celebrity appeal, the idea is that we look at Vicky Pattison as proof that this supplement will work.

Does Mini:Burn work?

We think that it probably does work to provide a healthy boost of vitamins and it will probably help you lose some weight too. If you use this supplement to support a healthy diet plan – perhaps even Vicky Pattison’s own diet plan, you will probably lose weight without any need to buy her various products.

We think that Mini: Burn looks to be a reasonably effective supplement that may provide you with some short-term weight loss. There is evidence that caffeine increases the speed of the metabolism and may help break down body fat if consumed before exercise.

This supplement may provide you with soma additional weight loss support if combined with a diet and exercise plan. It probably will do little for you if you do not. However, you could possibly get the same effects from cups of coffee and vitamin pills.

Mini:Burn Ingredients

Mini:Burn is a fat burner diet pill. Each serving is equal to two capsules. This supplement is suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

  • Total Caffeine (From Kola, Cocoa, Guarana, Green Coffee and Caffeine from Coffee Bean) (271mg): Caffeine is caffeine and the source is unimportant. There is no difference between the types of caffeine but it is very useful to have this total because it tells you the sort of effect you can expect. The average cup of instant coffee contains around 70mgs so the same here as roughly 4 cups.
    Caffeine is useful for weight loss. It provides a quick energy boost and it can increase the speed of the metabolism but effects often wear off once you get used to it. People react differently to caffiene. Some people can find that too much caffeine can cause jitteriness, others have a high tolerance.
  • Guarana Extract (96mg): This South American berry contains high levels of caffeine so is often used in weight loss supplements and energy drinks.
  • Capsicum (Cayenne) Extract (133mg): There is some evidence that the compound in peppers that causes the hot sensation also promotes fat burning. Cayenne may help to increase the speed of the metabolism (as in the sweating some people experience after a hot curry).
    Some evidence suggests that capsicum may help weight maintenance as described here.
  • Kola Nut Extract (93mg): Natural fruit which grows on the Kola tree in South America. Kola nuts are high in caffeine and are well known as the origin of the name Cola. However, Cocoa Cola no longer uses kola nuts in the secret recipe.
  • Green Coffee Extract (50mg): This ingredient has been widely touted for weight loss but lacks any real evidence. Some people believe that the chlorogenic acid contained in green coffee extract limits glucose absorption but effects are minimal, even at higher servings than here.
  • Beta Alanine (50mg): Amino acid that is made by the body and also taken as a supplement to improve muscle building and reduce fatigue. Some evidence shows that it may help boost physical performance. It may help aid recovery after intensive exercise.
  • Green Tea Extract (50mg): According to the product information, green tea can help you maintain a normal weight. However, there is evidence that when combined with caffeine as here, this combination leads to increased fat oxidation.
  • Acetyl (N) L-Carnitine (20mg): Amino acid that is made in the kidneys and liver and helps the body convert fat into energy. In supplement form, it is sometimes used for the treatment of mental disorders such as age related memory loss. There is some evidence that it is effective for this purpose and it might also help relieve muscle fatigue.
  • Vitamin B3 (16mg): According to the advertising this amount provides 100% of the daily-required amount of this water soluble vitamin which is also found in eggs, fish meat and poultry. Vitamin B3 or Niacin helps the functioning of the body’s digestive system, skin, and nerves. It is also important for converting food to energy. However, it can cause itchiness and facial flushing if you take too much.
  • Bioperine® Black Pepper Extract (10mg): Branded black pepper supplement that is believed to increase absorption of other ingredients.
  • Vitamin B5 (6mg): Also known as pantothenic acid and an essential vitamin for health. Here at 100% of RDA.
  • Vitamin B6 (1.4mg ): Vitamin B6 helps the body to use and store energy from protein and carbohydrates in food. It is naturally present in a wide variety of foods, including meat, cereals, bread and vegetables, and is often included in fortified breakfast cereals.
  • Vitamin B2 (1.4mg): Also known as Riboflavin this B micronutrient plays a key role in maintaining health and vitality. 100% of RDA.
  • Vitamin B1 (1.1mg): Water-soluble vitamin that is essential for health and present in many normal foods including, yeast and cereal grains.
  • Folic Acid (200µg): This water-soluble B vitamin is important for pregnant women because it helps protect against birth defects. It is also used to prevent heart disease and strokes so is necessary in later life too. Here in 100% RDA.
  • Biotin (50µg): Important B vitamin that helps healthy skin, nerves, metabolism. Some medical opinion is that biotin is present in a normal diet without the need for supplementation.
  • Vitamin B12 (2.5µg): This vitamin helps in the production of healthy red blood cells that carry oxygen around the body. Deficiency can cause fatigue and anaemia.

Mini:Burn Customer Feedback

We have been unable to find independent feedback for Mini: Burn, however it is mentioned on Vicky Pattison’s twitter account and with over one million followers, there are genuine looking comments. One person tweeted,

@minivnutrition the mini burn helped me to a half marathon PB today! #thanks.

There are also positive customer comments left on the product page of the website. One typical looking comment read,

I must admit I was a bit unsure if these really would worked. I’ve been taking them over a week and lost 5lb got so much energy 🙂 Amazing product xx

The trouble with celebrity inspired diet pills is that in many cases, customers are fans of the celebrity and their comments and experiences are usually positive.

Mini: Burn may be effective but with this loyal Geordie Shore fan base, reviews can sometimes be very slanted towards the positive. Mini: Burn is not on sale from any independent outlets so it is hard to get an unbiased opinion.

Mini:Burn Money-Back Guarantee

There do not appear to be any guarantees on offer.

You can only buy Mini:Burn direct from Vicky Pattison’s website. This supplement is not available on the High Street or via independent outlets such as Amazon.

One bottle of 60 capsules (30 servings and a month’s supply) costs £24.99. Shipping to UK addresses is an additional £3.99.

Shipping to US addresses is an additional £15.50.

You can sometimes qualify for product discount codes via the Vicky Pattison website, twitter or Facebook.

Watchdog Verdict

If you are a Geordie Shore fan and like Vicky Pattison, you can enjoy taking a supplement that she personally recommends and has had a hand in creating.

But is this really enough reason to take if you are not already a Vicky fan? We are not sure it is, and although £24.00 for a month’s supply is not expensive for a supplement, it could be seen as being a bit pricey for what is essentially caffeine with vitamins thrown in.

We do believe, however, that losing weight healthily is important and if some celebrity appeal helps you do this, Mini:Burn may be a good choice.

That said, for impartial users and people who neither know nor care about Geordie Shore this supplement may not seem to be such a good deal.

It is a close call, but on balance we feel that for the majority of our readers Mini:Burn is not really good enough to add to our approved list.
