So What Is Shredr Rapid Fat Burner and What Are The Ingredients?

The ingredients and the quantities given below are per serving of three capsules. There is a huge list of ingredients used in this diet pill.

  • Phenylalanine 75.00mg: An amino acid which is used for treating depression, amongst other things. However, the research to suggest that this will effectively treat depression is outdated, with calls for more testing using updated research methods.

  • Tyrosine 0.60g: Some people use L-Tyrosine as an appetite suppressant, but there is little clinical 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.
    Source:http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/TYROSINE
  • Vitamin B6 10.00mg: Vitamin B6 has several important functions in the body, including ‘allowing the body to use and store energy from protein and carbohydrates in food’. Whilst taking excess amounts of vitamin B6 will not infinitely improve this ability, a deficiency could make it more difficult to lose weight.
    Source:http://www.nhs.uk/vitamins-minerals/Pages/Vitamin-B.aspx
  • Vitamin B12 600.00ug: Vitamin B12 is naturally present in many foods, primarily meat, fish and dairy products. It has several roles, including aiding in releasing energy from consumed food, and keeping the nervous system healthy. It may be that a deficiency hinders weight loss, but taking excess amounts could be, according to the NHS, potentially harmful.
    Source:http://www.nhs.uk/vitamins-minerals/Pages/Vitamin-B.aspx
  • Pantothenic Acid 18.00mg
  • Biotin 600.00ug
  • Chromium 57.00ug: 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.

  • Bioperine 5.00mg: This patented Black pepper extract is used for increasing the bioavailability of nutritional compounds. In other words, it increases the amounts of nutrients that are absorbed into the body in the digestive tract. It may also increase the absorption of various drugs, which may lead to potential side effects.
    Source:http://bioperine.com/
  • N Acetyl Carnitine 300 mg: There is some evidence that supplementation of acetyl-l-carnitine can reduce body fat, although the strongest results were seen in the elderly. The ingredient also boosts energy levels, and is used to treat fatigue.
    Source:http://examine.com/supplements/L-Carnitine/
  • Caffeine Anhydrous 450mg: Numerous studies have shown that caffeine boosts energy levels and alertness, as well as mildly boosting the metabolism. The effects shown in studies are small, and some studies are inconclusive.
    Source:http://www.mayoclinic.org/caffeine
  • Citrus Aurantium 300 mg: Citrus Aurantium, also known as bitter orange peel has been proven to raise the metabolism and aid weight loss. However there are some concerns about its safety.
    Source:http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22991491
  • White Kidney Bean Extract 750 mg: One study in humans showed that participants who consumed 2000 mg of white kidney bean extract per day, 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.
    Source:http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17658120
  • Green Tea Extract 300 mg: 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 slightly for few hours.
    Source:http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/70/6/1040.full
  • Guarana Seed 21.60mg: A berry that is naturally high in caffeine, it is often an ingredient in energy drinks and diet pills.
    Source:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guarana#Other_uses_and_side_effects
  • Cayenne Pepper Extract 3.00mg: Capsaicin is found in Cayenne pepper and is thought by some to play a role in weight loss. Some studies suggest it could suppress the appetite mildly, whilst others suggest that the heat causes a thermogenic reaction in the body, burning more calories for a period of time. However, there are also studies that show cayenne has little or no effect upon weight loss attempts.

  • Black Pepper Extract 3.00mg: Most likely to be piperine. Bioperine, also used in this diet pill, is a patented form of this ingredient.
  • Green Coffee Extract 9.00mg: Contains caffeine. Whilst it was thought that this ingredient was a significant aid in weight loss, the relevant research has been discredited as it was fraudulent. Currently there is no evidence that it aids with weight loss more than any other source of caffeine.
    See our article for more details:https://www.dietpillswatchdog.com/coffee
  • Raspberry Ketones 150 mg: 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.

So What Does All This Mean?

The dose of caffeine used in this diet pill is very high. Whilst this will increase the metabolism for a few hours and help to burn more calories, consumers should ensure that they avoid other sources of caffeine whilst they are using this diet pill in order to minimise the chances of side effects. Caffeine and citrus aurantium interact in the body, enhancing their effects. Citrus aurantium contains a number of stimulants including synephrine; whilst there is strong evidence that it promotes significant amounts of weight loss by stimulating the central nervous system, it has also been associated with numerous unpleasant side effects. Bioperine will increase the absorption of caffeine, increasing the effectiveness of these two ingredients even more.

There are also numerous other ingredients; white kidney bean extract appears to be present in a high dose of 750 mg, but successful clinical trials have used 2000 mg or more; therefore the smaller dose used in this diet pill may not be enough to make much of a difference to weight loss through blocking the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates.

Green Coffee Bean extract is unlikely to contribute to weight loss, as there is a lack of relevant and legitimate clinical support. Cayenne is thought to increase thermogenesis, meaning that it raises the body’s temperature, burning more calories in the process.

Does Shredr Rapid Fat Burner Have Any Side Effects?

There are some side effects that can be caused by the ingredients used in Shredr Rapid Fat Burner. Customers report mild side effects such as feeling lightheaded during the first few days of use, dizziness and increased appetite. Customers have stated that eating a large breakfast does seem to reduce the side effects.

Side effects associated with the use of Citrus Aurantium 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 Citrus Aurantium 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 Citrus Aurantium 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. Bioperine increases the absorption rate of many ingredients, including caffeine, and so may make the side effects of these ingredients more likely or worse. Consumers who are taking medication are also more at risk of overdose because of this higher absorption rate, and so should consult their doctor before taking any product that contains bioperine or pepper extracts.

Cayenne can cause an upset stomach, heartburn, increased sweating, flushing and a runny nose. Ginger can cause mild side effects such as heartburn, diarrhoea and stomach ache.
Chromium may lower blood sugar levels, and so this product should not be used by diabetics, as it may interfere with their medication.

White kidney bean extract can cause stomach pains, increased bowel movements, flatulence, bloating, stomach discomfort, heartburn and diarrhoea. The use of carb blocking ingredients such as white kidney bean extract may seriously reduce or limit the creation of alpha-amylase, the enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates in the stomach. Whilst this will aid weight loss in the short term, it may become unhealthy to continue this in the long term.

Caution:
Not suitable for those under the age of 18. Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone suffering from any heart related health issues, including but not limited to high blood pressure. Not suitable for anyone who is sensitive to caffeine and other stimulants. Consumers should avoid other stimulants and all other sources of caffeine whilst taking Shredr Rapid Fat Burner to minimise the chances of side effects. Stop use of this diet pill at least 2 weeks before any scheduled surgery.

Any Shredr Rapid Fat Burner Reviews From Customers?

There are numerous customer reviews on Muscle Foods, where Shredr Rapid Fat Burner is sold. Customer reviews are generally positive, and customers report significant weight loss (when combining with a proper, calorie controlled diet). There are a few negative aspects that are referred to regularly; customers note that the product is expensive, the tablets are quite large, and a few side effects may occur. The reported side effects generally seem to wear off after the first few days of use, although one customer stated that they did have to stop taking the product because they felt so ill. The cost of delivery and the disproportionate size of the packaging the product is sent in have also been raised as small problems several times.

I have taken it as the instructions say and to be honest I have noticed nothing but maybe I need to complete the box.

Firstly would like to say they are great and they do work but for me they made me feel really ill so had to stop taking them. Felt very light headed later on in the day after training. If you are wanting to try them I would recommend unfortunately just did not agree with me.

Whoop! First few days I experienced a bit of light headiness and then everything was good after that – actually helped wake me up in the morning. I used this before a wedding, with aim to lose 10lb, I managed to lose 12lb (some of which will be water retention). Very happy, but please lower the price a bit!

Thought I would give these a go to aid my weight loss, as I have osteo-arthritis in the lumbar spine which limits strenuous exercise. Even with the small amount I can do, these have really boosted the fat loss as well as given me loads of energy that I normally lose on my low carb high protein diet. I will be buying again without any hesitation!

Really great product, took one months worth and lost just under a stone. I couldn’t afford a new pack and I was worried that like many other fat burners, if I didn’t keep taking these I would put the weight back on! However, I have now lost two stone and these helped kick start the process. Now I can afford it I will be buying these again! Great product!

So Does Shredr Rapid Fat Burner Work?

Despite the manufacturers describing the capsules as small, some people have noted that they are large and can be difficult to swallow. The product contains a huge variety of clinically proven weight loss ingredients, such as caffeine, chromium, citrus aurantium, green tea extract and cayenne pepper extract. Bioperine will increase the absorption of caffeine, making the ingredient more potent.

White kidney bean extract is effective, but clinical trials have typically used much higher doses than are found in Shredr Rapid Fat Burner.

Raspberry ketone and Green coffee extract currently have no clinical support in the form of human based trials, but there is some supporting evidence for raspberry ketone in animal and test tube studies.

Overall, taking shredr Rapid Fat Burner should increase the consumer’s rate of weight loss, especially if combined with other weight loss measures such as a calorie controlled diet.

Where Can I Buy Shredr Rapid Fat Burner?

There are three bottle sizes available for Shredr Rapid Fat Burner; 90 capsules, 180 capsules and 270 capsules.

Shredr Rapid Fat Burner is available from Muscle Foods, a British online supplier of healthy food and supplements. A bottle of 90 capsules costs £27.45, whilst a bottle of 180 capsules costs £52.16 and a bottle of 270 capsules costs £74.12. Delivery is free on orders of £75 or more.

What About A Guarantee

Muscle Food offer no money back guarantee. Because the majority of their products are perishable food items, there is no long returns period. However, on certain items, including supplements, customers are entitled to return their order within 14 days of delivery under distance selling regulations, if the products are unopened.

Watchdog Verdict

Overall, the feedback for Shredr Rapid Fat Burner is very positive. The ingredients used are common in various diet pills, but the three capsule serving means that the majority of the ingredients are present in high doses. The only ingredient that is present in insufficient quantities compared to successful clinical trials is white kidney bean extract.

Because if the high doses of some of the individual ingredients (such as 450 mg of caffeine per serving), there is a significant chance of some side effects occurring. The potential list of side effects is extensive, and customers should consider initially taking a smaller dose to assess tolerance.

There is no money back guarantee for this product, and delivery is quite expensive, as it normally covers the delivery of fresh, refrigerated foods including raw meat. The delivery service is described as a private ‘fully tracked courier service’. Some customers have noted that the product is quite expensive, but in general it seems to be in line with the average prices of weight loss supplements available in the UK.

Whilst this appears to be a strong supplement that will aid weight loss, we are hesitant to recommend it to readers in general. The long list of side effects, and the long list of restrictions of who should not use this product, means that it will not be suitable for many people. The product is manufactured and sold on Muscle Food, who target ‘athletes and the health conscious’ who are passionate about sport and nutrition. Whilst this product may be a great supplement for experienced users of fat burning supplements, we would not recommend it to anyone who has not tried stimulant fat burning supplements before, especially considering the restrictions on returns.

In general, therefore, we do not recommend Shredr Rapid Fat Burner.
