Shredabull is a very disappointing product. It contains laxative ingredients, which is certainly not a surefire route to weight-loss, it just gives the misleading feeling of weight-loss through dehydration. As for the rest of the formula, we’ve got no idea what the quantities are; it could be useless, or it could be dangerous. So we were pleased to hear that Shredabull had actually been formulated, but the newer version, called Shredabull Untamed, is just as problematic, albeit in a different way. You can read our review of that one here.

Shredabull is a fat burning weight loss aid manufactured and sold by Anabolic Designs. But the use of laxatives is not healthy when used regularly, and can interfere with the body’s natural ability to regulate bowel movements, causing a reliance upon them.

What does Shredabull claim to do?

According to the official website, the synergistic blend will:

  • Give rapid fat loss
  • Increase energy levels without the jitters
  • Help you dominate your workouts
  • Help maintain lean muscle

ShredaBull is basically the ultimate all in one fat incinerating supplement that not only covers every aspect of fat burning but also performance too.

Does Shredabull work?

The ingredients list is extensive, and it seems that those who exercise regularly and intensely do notice a boost to their workouts and weight loss. However, we do not like that this product contains laxatives, which are not suitable for regular use in the long run, and may give the impression of weight loss in the short term.

Shredabull Ingredients

The ingredients list includes several proprietary mixes, and so not all of the ingredient quantities are per individual ingredient. The quantities provided below are per daily serving of three capsules.

  • Vitamin B-6 (pyridoxal HCL) (10mg. 500%)
  • Vitamin B-12 (Methylcobalamin) (1000mcg. 1666%)
  • Niacin (20mg. 100%)
  • Folic Acid (400mcg. 100%)
  • Senna Seed (4:1) (40mg): Senna is an FDA-approved non-prescription laxative. It is used to treat constipation.
  • Chromium (As Chromemate® Chromium Polynicotinate) (200mcg. 166%): This is used primarily to lower fasting blood sugar levels and to lower insulin levels in people who have type 2 diabetes. In terms of its potential effect upon weight loss, it is possible that taking chromium picolinate by mouth for 2 to 3 months might produce a small weight loss of about 1.1 kg. Obviously, this is an incredibly small amount of weight loss, but studies are still inconclusive.
  • Calcium Carbonate (100mg. 10%)

Incinerate – Thermogenic matrix 856mg

  • Caffeine Anhydrous: Numerous studies have shown that caffeine boosts energy levels and alertness, as well as mildly boosting the metabolism, causing a small increase in the number of calories used by the body. The effects shown in studies are small, and some studies are inconclusive.
  • White Willow Bark (25% salicin): Willow bark contains salicin, which acts a painkiller, and is thought to be as effective as aspirin. There is some evidence that when taken in conjunction with kola nut and ephedra, it can cause weight loss. It does not seem to have been tested on its own for weight loss properties.
  • Ginger Root (5% gingerols): 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.
  • Raspberry Ketones (98%): 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, especially for use in food flavourings and perfume production, it is much cheaper to synthesize it in a lab, especially for the large quantities that are required for use in raspberry ketone supplements.
    Whilst there is a small amount of evidence that raspberry ketone can cause weight loss in rats, 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.
  • Green Tea Extract (98% polyphenols): Green tea is high in a group of antioxidants called catechins. Studies have suggested that catechins and caffeine both increase energy expenditure by boosting the metabolism temporarily. However, the metabolic increase caused by green tea is limited. One study found that the use of green tea was not enough to counteract weight gain following a very low-calorie diet.

Thyrocharge – Thyroid activity enhancement (365mg)

  • Guggul (10% Guggulsterones): Guggul extract is taken from the sap of a tree native to India. Currently, evidence that Guggul is useful for weight loss is preliminary, with mixed results from the few trials already conducted upon it, with some suggesting that Guggul has no effect upon weight loss, whilst other suggest its effect is moderate.
  • Coleus Forskohlii (20% forskolin): A plant belonging to the mint family that is thought to boost the metabolism. However, the clinical trials performed using this ingredient have shown no weight loss, even when the participants’ lean muscle mass increased and fat mass decreased.
  • Olive Leaf Extract (15% Oleuropein)

Secretrophin – Growth Hormone secretion blend (200mg)

  • Alpha GPC
  • Mucuna Pruriens (98% l-dopa): A bean-like plant that has traditionally been used in Ayurvedic medicine. It is used for treating anxiety, amongst other things. However, there is little clinical evidence to support its use: the active ingredient is levodopa (l-dopa), which can affect the levels of dopamine in the brain. However, most L-dopa is broken down in the body before it can reach the brain, unless combined with specific chemicals that are not present in Mucuna Pruriens.

Lipicarbolate – Fat and Carbohydrate uptake regulator (300mg)

  • Chitosan: A type of fibre extracted from the shells of crustaceans such as lobster and crabs. It may block the absorption of dietary fat and cholesterol. Studies suggest its effects are minimal.
  • White Kidney Bean Extract: One study in humans showed that participants who consumed white kidney bean extract, in addition to being on a multi-component weight loss programs (diet, exercise and behavioural intervention) lost more weight when compared to those who just followed the multi-component diet. However, studies typically use 1500 mg per day, much more than is used in Shredabull.

Neuro Zone – Mental Focus Matrix (601mg)

  • N-Acetyl L- Tyrosine: An amino acid that is a building block of protein, this ingredient is found naturally in many foods including meat and dairy products. Some people use it as an appetite suppressant, but there is little evidence that it is effective for this use. Large doses of tyrosine may be useful for increasing alertness, especially in people who are sleep deprived.
  • Phenylethylamine HCL: More commonly known as PEA, this ingredient is derived from the amino acid phenylalanine. It is thought to increase alertness, aid in concentration and focus, and may also enhance mood, which are all arguably traits that dieters need help with in succeeding with their weight loss attempts.
  • DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol)
  • Vinpocetine

Cortikill – Cortisol Control and Muscle Preservation Matrix (200mg)

  • Bacopa Monneri (20% bacosides A+B)
  • Ashwagandha (10:1): This plant is thought that its use lowers cortisol levels in the brain and body. Cortisol is a hormone produced during moments of stress, which has been associated with increased weight gain, and making weight loss more difficult.
  • Rhodiola Rosea (3% Rosavins And 1% Salidroside): This plant has been shown to increase endurance in rats forced to swim for long periods of time. It may also help to improve recovery time after exhaustive exercise. There is little clinical evidence based upon humans.

Shredabull Side Effects

With a large number of ingredients used in this diet pill, it would be more surprising if Shredabull was not associated with any side effects. Customers have reported some side effects when taking capsules too close together, which include cold chills, a feeling of anxiety/being overwhelmed, dehydration, thirst, increased sweating, nausea, insomnia, and diarrhoea.

Caffeine can cause headaches, increased urination, jitteriness, dehydration, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, and problems sleeping. Chromium lowers blood sugar levels and so can cause light-headedness and fainting, and should not be used by diabetics.

Senna is a laxative, and so can cause diarrhoea, stomach pains, dehydration, and in some cases where the consumer is not drinking enough water, constipation.

Carb blockers such as white kidney bean extract can cause stomach pains, increased bowel movements and flatulence, and severe gas and bloating. Discomfort and tenderness in the stomach are not uncommon. Eating a large amount of carbohydrates whilst using this product can lead to sudden diarrhoea after meals.

Caution: Not suitable for pregnant for breastfeeding women, diabetics, or those with high blood pressure or other cardiac-related health issues. Not for use by those under the age of 18. Those who have any serious medical conditions or who are taking prescription medications should consult their doctor before taking any weight loss supplements.

Shredabull Customer Feedback

There are numerous customer reviews for this product, as it is sold through several different online retailers. The reviews are mixed, but many customers mention some side effects.

Worked fantastic for me considering i used grenade and reflex thermofusion before. In combination with proper nutrition and HIIT. Its excellent!

Waste of money, did nothing to me.

Had some mild side effect – Cold chills & slight anxiety/overwhelming feeling when taking more than 1 cap reasonably close together (only get this feeling upon taking the second tab a few hours after the first). Noticed positive effects though. Helping the leaning process well though. Please remember this is only my experience, everyone’s tolerance differs person to person, my tolerance may just be low with the ingredients in these caps. Overall; Good product with working effect – would probably get better effects if I was able to take 3 tabs a day! Recommended!

Shredabull has been the best fat burner I have used by far. No side effects and lost quite a lot around my hips over 4 weeks without any change to my training (4xper week).

Fantastic product, I was impressed with how quickly they’ve worked. Ive only been using it a week but its already helped my mental focus which ive found was an asset in all aspects of my life in and out of training .It’s also kerbed my appetite , which cut out unneeded snacking and I’m feeling fuller quicker . And I have no doubts that with more training it will aid my toning. The capsules are a bit big for me personally to swallow, but I’ve found breaking the capsules into morning oats or a drink. But other than that It’s great and will be buying next month’s supply soon.

Watchdog Verdict

Whilst Shredabull might be suitable for those in the shred stage of weight loss or bodybuilding, we do have some concerns about the product. The use of laxatives is not healthy when used regularly, and can interfere with the body’s natural ability to regulate bowel movements, causing a reliance upon laxatives. Senna and other ingredients may also interfere with the uptake of vitamins, and cause a loss of electrolytes.

Dehydration is also a major concern. The website makes no mention of potential side effects, although it seems that many ingredients used can cause a variety of problems for the user, including anxiety and diarrhoea, both of which have been reported by customers.

The lack of a money-back guarantee or even a clear returns policy is a problem too. Customers who do want to use this product are advised to cycle the product, taking regular breaks from use, as well as starting with a small dose to assess their personal tolerance.

Overall, we do not recommend Shredabull Shredabull.
