The T5 Fat Burner Patch is marketed by Biogen Health Science a UK company who specialise in T5 products. As well as the patch, you can buy fat burner capsules and a serum and use these products in combination.
T5 Fat Burner Patch is a weight loss patch that you simply stick to your skin and forget about for 12 hours. According to the product information you can use it at night as well as day because the patch does not contain any caffeine so will not keep you awake.
Taking supplements transdermally, or through the skin, can be an effective method of delivery for some medication although it does not work for everything. Thousands of people have given up smoking via a nicotine patch so it seems to make sense that perhaps ingredients that help support weight loss can be delivered in the same way.
However, the T5 Fat Burner Patch product description and explanation is weird to say the least and not very easy to understand.
According to Biogen the patch employs new nano magnet technology which means;
the magnetic waves emitted from the T5 fat burner patch produces a similar effect to acupuncture treatment – speeding up the conduction of electromagnetic signals within the body.
Apparently, this increases the flow of endorphins, which are naturally produced by the pituitary gland during exercise.
So, the T5 Fat Burner Patch contains magnets? The ingredients list tells a different story.
According to the product information, the patches do not contain magnets but herbal ingredients including Elaterin; Honeysuckle; Aloe and Fiveleaf. None of these ingredients have magnetic abilities. In addition, it seems unlikely they will do much for weight loss and many of them seem dangerous.
Biogen is a UK based company that at first glance seem to have all the right credentials including a fancy building as their head office. The company posts a picture of this on their website but sadly, it is simply a stock photo, which is used by countless other companies across the world including a drainage business in Canada.
However, the address is provided:
Biogen Health Science Beautiful Body Limited
First Floor Venture House,
6 Silver Court, Watchmead,
Welwyn Garden City, Herts.
We looked into this and found it was operated by a business hosting service, which enables small businesses to benefit from 24 hours answering service and share facilities. Biogen are certainly not manufacturing supplements from this address.
This confusion makes Biogen Health Science a lot less impressive looking than their website image implies!
Biogen specialise in fat burning products. Their most well known supplement is the T5 Fat Burning Capsule – a fat burner that contains synephrine, caffeine and Phenylethylamine (PEA). In addition, you can buy T5 Serum “an extreme fat burning agent” with exotic ingredients including Capsicum extract and Guarana. You can also buy bundles of the three products and use them in combination.
Biogen say that,
Many scientific studies have conclusively shown that magnetic technology has a positive effect on the body’s natural detoxification process.
They go on to state…
In testing, nano-magnetic technology has been recognised to have immediate and positive changes to the blood chemistry when nano-magnetic technology is applied to the navel, including energising the liver.
At this point, we felt we had entered into some kind of parallel universe. Nano magnetic technology? Energising the liver?
We could not find any record to this clinical testing regarding a weight loss patch. There is investigation into nano technology for wound dressings but this does not yet appear to be mainstream.
According to the product information the patch:
T5 Fat Burner Patch is a weight loss patch that you wear on your skin for 12 hours. It contains a blend of herbal ingredients. We can find no reference in the product information to nano magnets.
T5 Fat Burner contains some pretty wacky ingredients but we can’t see much here that will really promote weight loss even if you took them in capsule form. However, the Goji berry is rich in antioxidants, is good for health and may help increase the metabolism but it is unknown whether these benefits can be delivered through the skin.
In addition, it is important to remember that just because a plant extract may be natural it doesn’t mean it is safe and some of these ingredients are known to be toxic. Most are untried and untested when it comes to safety. Some, such as Elaterin have well documented side effects.
Taking medication or health supplements transdermally through your skin is not always feasible either. The skin provides a very effective barrier and only medications whose molecules are small enough to penetrate the skin can be delivered by this method. Nicotine and some vitamins and minerals fall into this category but it does not work for everything.
With the lack of clinical evidence for many of these obscure herbal ingredients, it is unlikely that applying them to your skin will affect anything other than your skin and the area around the patch.
The so-called nano magnets appear to be pure invention. You will not magnetise your excess fat away by so-called fat magnets.
The T5 Fat Burner Patch may have side effects. It is possible that some of these ingredient molecules may be small enough to pass through the skin but there is no information that shows they have ever been tested for this application. It is highly possible that this information is totally unknown. More likely, you may experience skin irritation or an allergic reaction.
We were unable to find any independent feedback from anyone who had actually tried this patch.
Avoid if pregnant or breast-feeding and do not take if you are trying to conceive. Some of the ingredients are known to cause abortion or birth defects.
Some of the ingredients may cause drug interactions, that is if your body can actually absorb them.
This weight loss patch seems completely untried and untested so we would not recommend anyone to try it.
We were unable to find any independent reviews for this supplement.
No it does not work. Most of the herbal ingredients do not have any application for losing weight and we have no evidence that any of them are suitable for use with a patch anyway. This patch does not employ nano magnet technology. It is all pure invention. At best this supplement will be ineffective.

We don’t usually come out and say it so bluntly but this weight loss patch looks pretty bad. None of the ingredients seem to have any application for weight loss and many of them come with the risk of side effects. That is, they would cause side effects if they were absorbed by your body but there is simply no evidence to prove that they are suitable for use via a patch.
Biogen also claim to be using something they describe as nano magnetic technology, which sounds fairly futuristic and exceedingly unlikely. This technology is in the early stage of development for cancer care and wound healing but is certainly not available to the supplements industry.
We would not recommend anyone to try this patch. It will not help you lose weight and there is a risk of unknown effects. We certainly would not try it ourselves so it is an easy decision.
We reject Biogen T5 Fat Burner Patch.
