We take an in depth look at T5 Dominate to find out.
Extreme Labs T5 Dominate – the Fat Destroyer, to give it its full name, is a weight loss supplement designed to help you burn fat and reduce your food consumption. According to the product information, it will help you if you are trying to start a new weight loss programme or need some help with your existing regime.
The supplement contains three branded formulas. The first is Active RX a stimulant blend that combines caffeine with Yerba Mate a plant extract from South America. Yerba Mate also contains caffeine and is often used as an alternative to coffee or tea in South America, so you can count on caffeine being the principle ingredient here. However, Yerba Mate may have added benefits for weight loss including research that suggests it may reduce cholesterol levels.
The second blend is the Tri AS complex – the principle part of the formula and this contains Bitter Orange Extract (Citrus Aurantium) Green tea extract and Garcinia Cambogia Extract.
This part of the formula looks pretty strong. Bitter Orange contains a chemical called synephrine, which is a stimulant that can raise heart rate and blood pressure so it will not be suitable if you have any health issues around taking stimulants.
The Green tea content is in condensed form too so will provide added caffeine, possibly in high amounts to the mix. However there are health and weight loss benefits to green tea and it may help fat burning when combined with added caffeine as here.
Garcinia Cambogia is stimulant free and may help prevent blood sugar (glucose) from being converted to body fat. Some evidence suggests it can inhibit a digestive enzyme that causes this reaction.
The final branded formula is Quadvit – a patented blend of four vitamins that may have a specific relevance to weight loss as well as being good for general health.
T5 Dominate comes from Extreme Labs a British company based in London. Extreme Labs specialise in sports supplements mainly around the bodybuilding and training niche and are well known across these areas. The company deliver across the UK and Europe but do not ship to the USA . Extreme supplements are not easily available in America.
All Extreme Labs supplements are made in the UK and fully conform to industry standards.
We covered Extreme Labs T9 Black Fury in a previous review.
Take 2 capsules on an empty stomach 30 minutes prior to breakfast with a large glass of water. Take a further capsule 30 minutes prior to your training session (max 3 caps per day).
This product is strong so assess your tolerance by only taking one capsule on the first time of using this product.
According to the product advertising, T5 Dominate has four key features.
This last point is interesting. Extreme Labs have devised their own scale of fat burner strengths and state that Level 3 is suitable for “First time users that want results” and is suitable “for male or female first time users of fat burners that want to lose weight in a safe and controlled manor with very minimal side effects.”
By contrast, Level 5 is aimed at “Advanced hardcore stimulant users of fat burners”
Although this is Extreme Labs own scale, the company do not even sell level 1 or 2 !
T5 Dominate is suitable for new diet pill users “Its unique combination of ingredients make this the perfect entry to using a safe reliable weight management product.”
Use this supplement first and you advised that you can move onto stronger products. According to the advertising, T5 Dominate:
will support your weight loss and as your weight loss goals change, you can then move onto stronger products like our T6 Fire Storm or our ultimate fat burning T9 Black Fury. (Not for first time users)
However, there are no links to clinical evidence to prove that any of these supplements will help you lose weight.
In addition, if T5 Dominate really worked to help you lose weight, why should you want to move to a stronger product? This point is not fully explained.
T5 Dominate is a fat burner supplement that contains stimulants.
Each capsule is equal to one serving.
Active RX (175mg):
Tri AS Complex (300mg):
Quadvit Blend (9000mcg):
T5 Dominate contains stimulants so depending upon your own tolerance to caffeine, and everyone is different, you may feel that this supplement picks you up and gets you motivated, or alternatively makes you feel jittery and on edge. People who habitually drink a lot of coffee may not even notice.
The Citrus Aurantium is of more concern because synephrine is a chemical which affects the nervous system and mimics the effects of the flight or fight response by increasing stress hormones. This can cause increased heart rate and blood pressure depending on dose and your own physical make up. Amounts here are unknown, which is worrying.
Overall, we think this supplement will cause a stimulant effect, which may in turn decrease appetite, but it does come with a risk of side effects.
T5 Dominate comes with the warning that this product is strong so you should assess your tolerance by only taking one capsule on the first time of using this product.
Potential side effects may include
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor before using if you suffer from a medical condition (especially if related to heart, blood pressure or diabetes) or if you are taking prescription medication. T5 Dominate contains ingredients that may cause drug interactions.
We have been unable to find any independent customer feedback for T5 Dominate.
It is hard to say whether this supplement will work for weight loss or not. There are no customer reviews so we cannot bring you any real life experiences. In addition, the ingredient profile does not provide the ingredients quantities so it is hard to tell just what it will do and how strong the individual ingredients are.
Stimulants for weight loss are popular but although they can work short term by decreasing your appetite and making you rush around more, they are not effective for long-term weight loss. The effects of caffeine can wear off as you become accustomed to use and in addition, there are health risks.
According to reports in the Journal of Obesity, “strokes and cardiac arrhythmias have been the major concern about supplements containing the sympathomimetic drug, synephrine.”

T5 Dominate will probably deliver the required stimulant effect and although this will not suit everyone and it does come with some health concerns, probably most people will not have too many problems. The serving sizes are relatively low, compared to some others on the market and if you follow the advice to take one capsule and gauge the effects first, you should stay reasonably safe.
However, you should not take this supplement if you have any health concerns or are taking prescription medication so it is important to see your doctor first if you fall into this category.
The downside to T5 Dominate and other stimulant diet pills is that this method of weight loss rarely works long term.
You may notice a short lived burst of energy but in most cases, this is the only effect and it doesn’t necessarily add up to losing any weight. Bodybuilders use stimulants to boost training and get in shape for specific competitions but ordinary people are usually looking for permanent and safe weight loss that lasts. Stimulants are not the best way to achieve these aims.
T5 Dominate is not proving popular. There is no independent customer feedback for this supplement despite being available on Amazon and other outlets which is of concern but perhaps this is easily explained. In our opinion, this supplement falls between two stools. It looks too powerful for most ordinary users who may just want to lose a little weight without training yet it is not powerful enough for the body builder brigade who generally like something stronger.
We have seen worse supplements that T5 Dominate, which is a point in its favour but in our opinion, it is just not good enough to add to our approved list. This leads us to only one decision and that is to reject T5 Dominate.
