We take a look at Shapeology Burn Blend to find out more.
Shapeology Burn Blend is a liquid capsule diet pill. It is a fat burner that the advertising says will mimic the effects of a high metabolism and it is made up of a blend of three formulas:
The first of these is Metabolin 150, which includes green tea extract, plus Evodia Rutaecarpa a plant extract believed to increase serotonin levels.
The second component of Burn Blend is Define Level Formula. This contains white willow extract – a natural form of aspirin known to decrease inflammation. It also contains DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol) a compound related to Choline and believed to work as a precursor to the brain chemical the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine.
This ingredient is popular with the body builder brigade because it is believed to increase alertness and improve exercise performance. Define Level Formula also contains Yohimbe – a stimulant that comes with health concerns because it has been linked to causing seizures and strokes.
The final part of the compound is the EnergiXy formula which contains caffeine and Xanthinol Nicotinate – a vasodilator which means it widens the blood vessels. The exact contents of this diet are not provided – this fat burner is in the form of a proprietary blend and therefore the individual ingredient amounts are not specified.
Depending on tolerance, take 1 to 2 liquid capsules in the MORNING with a glass of water, and 1 to 2 liquid capsules in the AFTERNOON with a glass of water.
Do not exceed more than 4 liquid capsules per day.

Metabolin 150 Formula
Shapeology Burn Blend does not look very safe! This supplement contains ingredients in unknown amounts that may cause unknown effects and the whole supplement just looks too unpredictable for safety or for weight loss.
Many of the ingredients such as yohimbine and white willow bark are well known for causing potentially dangerous side effects.The formula includes stimulants believed to stimulant the nervous system, and increase adrenaline.
Most of the claims are based on animal testing and not on human clinical trials. Do we really care that a plant extract from a Japanese tree can reverse insulin resistance in mice for example? It does not mean that it will have the same effect on humans.
This formula has never been tested – all ingredients information is based solely on other clinical tests and quantities and interactions have never been analysed. The ingredients mainly lack clinical testing so it is hard to say just what it will do!
According to the product information you may experience:
More serious side effects (not mentioned) may include:
You may also experience abdominal pain and gastro intestinal side effects such as diarrhoea.
Not intended for use by persons under 18.
Do not use if pregnant or nursing. In case of accidental overdose, contact a medical doctor or poison control immediately.
Discontinue use and consult a medical doctor if you experience unusual symptoms.
Consult a medical doctor before use if you have been treated for, diagnosed with or have a known medical condition or if you are using any prescription or over-the-counter drug(s).
Do not take if sensitive to caffeine. One serving (2 liquid capsules) of this product may contain as much caffeine as 3 cups of coffee (270mg).
If you have any questions about the advisability of taking this product, consult a medical doctor prior to use.
We found some feedback for Shapeology via a weight loss forum. Reviews looked genuine and there was a wide range of opinion. One customer reported,
This is one of the first dietary supplements I have tried in over 5 years, and it is definitely effective. Not only is it easy to swallow, it suppresses your appetite at least half the day, and gives you a great amount of energy!
I usually feel tired mid-morning and sluggish this had me going all day.
However, many people struggled with side effects. Gastrointestinal issues were a problem for some,
If you want bright red diarrhoea and horrendous gas that smells of burning tires, then this is the product for you.
Others found it simply too strong,
Terrible side effects. Hard time breathing, kept having to catch my breath. Shaky and trouble relaxing even after 8 hours of taking dose.
This was way too much for me. I felt the effects about twenty-thirty minutes after taking the first pill….I felt like my heart was going to explode. It also upset my stomach.
We think it probably does work as a stimulant but it is not a safe and effective way to lose weight. Taking stimulants may help with short-term weight loss because it decreases the appetite by making you feel too jittery to eat and it does make you rush around more burning off extra energy and calories.
Some people can tolerate this effect and many of the feedback comments were along the lines of ‘works great suppressing your appetite and giving you energy.’
However, this so-called energy is more like a chemical buzz than the energy you get from feeling well and active. It is unsustainable and not healthy. We do not know the ingredient amounts contained in this supplement because this information is hidden by being in the form of a proprietary blend.
Yohimbine for example is probably reasonably safe for most people at low doses of around 15mg 30mg per day but at high levels – 100mg daily for example, it could be fatal if you have a heart condition.
This means if you have an undetected medical condition you could be dicing with your health. We do not know how much yohimbine is in this supplement but it is present in two of the ingredients.
You can buy Shapeology Burn Blend direct from the product website. 30 days supply (60 capsules) costs $39.99. Shipping is free to US addresses. You can pay via PayPal or bankcard.
Shapeology is also available from some online supplement / weight loss product retailers such as Bulu Box.
However, this diet pill is not on sale from the major stores on the high street or shopping mall and it is not available via Amazon.com. Shapeology Burn Blend does not appear to be available to customers outside the USA.
No guarantee on offer.
We are not impressed with Shapeology Burn Bend. The packaging looks attractive but don’t be fooled. It contains some dangerous ingredients in unknown quantities that could be a health risk. Many people have experienced side effects of varying degrees and it could be potentially very dangerous.
In addition, we have no way of knowing the full ingredients profile or where this supplement was made. Has it been manufactured according to GMP (good manufacturing practice guidelines)? This vital information is not provided.
Will this stimulant help you lose weight? You may find it decreases your appetite and boosts your energy and this may help you lose some weight initially. That said, this is not a safe and healthy method of weight loss and is highly unlikely to result in lasting weight loss.
It is an easy decision. This supplement is just not good enough or safe enough. We reject Shapeology Burn Blend.
Thousands of customers have cut the fat with this fast and powerful thermogenic fat burner. Can suppress appetite, boost energy levels and elevate mood without the jitters.
