Shredr Rapid Fat Burner is described by the manufacturers as:
A cutting edge and scientifically advanced supplement that aids rapid weight loss and body fat reduction – British formulated and British made.
Each tasteless, super small and easy to swallow tablet contains a potent and precise mix of ingredients all of which have been rigorously tested and proven to boost the rate at which your body burns calories and metabolises fat.
It’s even been formulated to increase your energy levels to ensure you can achieve an intense workout!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
