XM Burn

Updated May 9, 2019.
Published Dec 6, 2014.

XM Burn is a weight-management product sold by the multi-level marketing company, Zija. It contains an ingredient that we’ve never seen in a diet pill before: moringa. The company describe moringa as a “miracle tree” that is the “most nutrient-rich plant ever discovered”. In reality, it doesn’t look like it actually aids in weight loss, especially not in supplement form. As with any multi-level marketing scheme, tread with caution; you will likely be offered to sign-up for auto-shipping and/or coerced into joining up as a distributor.


  • Contains green tea and caffeine – clinically proven ingredients


  • Multi-level marketing scheme
  • Customers report problems with auto-ship program
  • Moringa not linked with weight loss
XM Burn
XM Burn is a product sold by Zija International, and contains moringa, described by the company as a “miracle tree” – which apparently is “the most nutrient-rich plant ever discovered”. We have never seen moringa in any diet pill other than the products produced by Zija, and so we thought we would take a look at XM Burn and its unusual main ingredient.

Does this “miracle tree” containing supplement offer a weight loss solution? We take a look.

XM Burn Overview

What you need to know about XM Burn

XM Burn is marketed as a weight-management supplement for men and women. This product contains the following ingredients; vitamin B3, natural caffeine, chromium, green tea extract, vitamin b6, moringa oleifera blend, vitamin b12, pouchong tea, higenamine, and rauwolscine. It claims it increases metabolism, controls appetite, and boosts energy levels.

What are the side effects of XM Burn?

Moringa oleifera is edible, and often eaten as a food. The leaves, fruit and seeds, used in this diet pill, are considered safe for use, but consumers should never eat the root (which is not used in this diet pill).

Green tea contains caffeine, which can cause a range of side effects. These include headaches, dizziness, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, and insomnia.

Chromium can lower blood sugar levels, and in some people this could lead to side effects, especially if their blood sugar levels were already on the low side. Low blood sugar levels can cause dizziness, light-headedness, and fainting, and is much more likely if the consumer has not eaten for a prolonged amount of time. Diabetics should consult their doctor before ordering any products containing chromium.

How much does XM Burn cost?

From Amazon, XM Burn costs $62.00 with free shipping, for a box of 30 capsules.

Customers can use a guest account to purchase from the shop. Here a single box of 30 capsules costs $74.00. This site is clearly intended for company distributors, as the site also has multipacks of 7 or 15 XM burn trial packs, priced at $74.00 and $149.00 respectively. These trial packs have four capsules per pack.

XM Burn Key Features

XM Burn is manufactured by a company called Zija International, who are a multi-level marketing company. Searching YouTube for Zija or XM Burn brings up numerous ‘reviews’ which are all made by independent distributors of the company, who are trying to sell their range of products to you, as well as recruit more people for their team.

XM Burn Key Points

  • Manufactured by Zoji
  • 30 capsules per box
  • Contains Moringa ingredient

We generally recommend that consumers avoid multi-level marketing schemes, as they try to recruit potential customers to join the company.

How to Take XM Burn

Suggested use is for adults to take one capsule, preferably before exercise on an empty stomach.

Consuming late in the day may impair sleep.

Do not take more than 2 capsules per day.

Each bottle contains 30 capsules and so should last for around a month if the instructions are followed.

Zija International are based in Utah, in the USA.

XM Burn Concerns:

  • Expensive product
  • Multi-level marketing scheme
  • Customers report problems with auto-ship program

What does XM Burn claim to do?

According to a promotional leaflet for XM Burn:

These advanced thermogenic caps combine natural herbs, including Moringa oleifera, with cutting-edge scientific expertise in a convenient daily capsule. XMburn works to temporarily increase metabolism, suppress appetite, and help you make smarter food choices to lose unwanted pounds and maintain a healthier weight.

These claims seem far-fetched, as the ingredients are not appetite suppressants, and it is unclear how a diet pill can ‘help you make smarter food choices’.

Does XM Burn work?

Moringa is one of the main ingredients of XM Burn, and is the main ingredient to be promoted by the company. However, there is no evidence available to suggest that it plays any role in weight loss when supplemented.

Green tea and caffeine will boost the metabolism and the thermogenic output of the body, but these two ingredients are available in many other diet pills for a much more affordable price.

The customer reviews are positive overall, but some customers have noted that even when the product initially worked, its effects started to taper off even within a few days of use.

XM Burn Ingredients

The main active ingredients in this supplement are in a proprietary blend (see below) so that the ingredient quantities are not revealed. Considering the blend is only 201mg suggests the amounts of individual ingredients won’t be high. Thank fully though the caffeine amounts are revealed to be around the same seen in a moderate cup of coffee.

  • Vitamin B3 (15mg): Vitamin B3, or Niacin, is responsible for helping to produce energy from consumed food, as well as helping keep the nervous and digestive systems healthy. Niacin can be easily sourced in adequate amounts from a balanced diet. Persistent excessive consumption of niacin has been linked with increased rates of obesity in American Children.
  • Vitamin B12 mcg: 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.
  • Chromium (120 mcg): 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.

Proprietary Blend (201 mg)

  • Green Tea Extract (60% EGCG): 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.
  • Moringa oleifera Blend (Leaf powder, seed cake, fruit powder): This plant is has been used in herbal medicine to treat a wide range of ailments, and the leaves are packed with nutrients that survive drying much better than in other plants. However, weight loss associations drawn with this plant are from eating it as a part of a low-calorie diet, rather than supplementing it.
  • Natural Caffeine (110mg): 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.

B vitamins all play various roles in the body, including helping to support the metabolism and the digestive process. Whilst having a deficiency of these vitamins may hinder weight loss efforts, taking excess amounts is unlikely to boost weight loss attempts significantly.

Deficiency in B vitamins is also relatively rare, because they are available in a wide range of foods, and are artificially supplemented into some foodstuffs such as cereal and even bread.

Moringa is not proven to aid weight loss, and has actually never been associated with it, even through speculation or in herbal medicine. Green tea and caffeine have been associated with aiding weight loss, but their effect is still relatively small, albeit significant. Chromium may impact weight loss, but only minimally over a prolonged period of use. Its effect is so small that it would not counteract an unhealthy diet with an excess of calories.

XM Burn Side Effects

Moringa oleifera is edible, and often eaten as a food. The leaves, fruit and seeds, used in this diet pill, are considered safe for use, but consumers should never eat the root (which is not used in this diet pill).

Green tea contains caffeine, which can cause a range of side effects. These include headaches, dizziness, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, and insomnia.

Chromium can lower blood sugar levels, and in some people this could lead to side effects, especially if their blood sugar levels were already on the low side. Low blood sugar levels can cause dizziness, light-headedness, and fainting, and is much more likely if the consumer has not eaten for a prolonged amount of time. Diabetics should consult their doctor before ordering any products containing chromium.

The below cautions are provided by the manufacturers of XM Burn as guidelines for their customers. Anyone who is unsure whether they should take this or any other diet pill should contact their doctor before purchasing the product.


Do not consume more than 2 capsules per day.

Not intended for use by persons 17 years or younger without the supervision of a health professional and parent/ guardian.

Not for use by persons who are pregnant or nursing, caffeine sensitive, suffer from heart disease, high blood pressure, difficulty urinating, psychiatric condition, depression, recurrent headaches, a medical condition or are taking MAO inhibitor or ADHD drugs.

Do not consume with alcohol, cold medicine/ drugs containing pseudoephedrine, ephedrine, PPA or other caffeine containing products.

Consumption contrary to warning may cause adverse health effects. If unpleasant effects occur, discontinue use immediately.

XM Burn Customer Feedback

XM Burn is available on Amazon, although under a different description (Zija Moringa Fat Burn Weight Management Caps), and so there are a few customer reviews available of the product.

Only thing wrong with my purchase was the packaging was smashed, other than that it works better than coffee, and doesn’t give you the shakes, and or the feeling of crashing like many energy drinks, and one hundred times better than the 5 hour energy drinks, or any other energy drink out there.

It worked great for the first 2 days…Then I guess my body started getting used to it? I felt the “speed” of the caps but I still felt the hunger too. Works better to take only a couple days a week.

This is my first time using the XMburn. I had used the XMam and liked the extra kick. What I am noticing about this product is it is quite stronger. I do not take it if I can not exercise to burn off the energy and I need LOTS of water as it makes me hot and sweaty… not sure yet if i’m going to reorder. I like an energy boost but not necessarily something that makes me feel all wound up.

There are also several positive reviews that are very short:

Love this product and great seller.

Awesome! And got them very quickly after ordering them.

I love it.

Good product still eat but smaller potions.

The final review here summarises the attitude that all diet pill users should take, as no matter how strong a diet pill is, better results will always be seen when combined with a balanced and calorie restricted diet.

XM Burn Money-Back Guarantee

The company offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. This money-back guarantee is only on unopened and unused products. However, customers have complained about the returns procedure, with some customers only being refunded 90% of the cost. Customers have also had trouble with being signed up to auto-ship programs without their consent, and having to pay to return the product that they had not knowingly ordered.

Where To Buy XM Burn

From Amazon, XM Burn costs $62.00 with free shipping, for a box of 30 capsules.

Customers can use a guest account to purchase from the shop. Here a single box of 30 capsules costs $74.00. This site is clearly intended for company distributors, as the site also has multipacks of 7 or 15 XM burn trial packs, priced at $74.00 and $149.00 respectively. These trial packs have four capsules per pack.

Customers can also purchase the products through a company representative, should they know one.

Watchdog Verdict

We would recommend avoiding any and all products sold my Zija and their independent distributors. Diet pill users in our opinion should always avoid auto-shipping programs and multi-level marketing companies. Because the distributors are self-employed people who sell the company’s products on, there is often confusion over who is responsible for customer welfare, and this may be a factor in explaining some of the complaints that have been left with the Better Business Bureau over the past few years.

Customers have felt ripped off and scammed by this company, and so even if their product was amongst the best available on the market, we would still encourage diet pill users to shop elsewhere.

As it stands, it appears that XM Burn is far from the best diet pill available. One of the main ingredients has no associations with weight loss, and no weight loss claims have ever been made about it.

Moringa is sometimes used in herbal medicines to treat a range of illnesses, and to improve all round health, because of its anti-oxidants and vitamin content, but it has never been used to treat weight related issues. The cost of the product is not validated by the remaining ingredients, which are available in many different diet pills, at a much lower cost.

We reject XM Burn.

  1. XM Burn has helped some of my friends as well as myself.
    I combine XM Burn with XM+ and it works wonders for me (helps me with my intermittent eating). i am not hungry during the day anymore, and feel that this is the best way for me to go. i’ve lost 30+ lbs since jan 1st, 2018 (and it is currently June, 2018)

  2. Kelly Johnson should do a little more homework before assessing an incorrect opinion. My best guess is she’s hocking the ‘recommended’ pills but cannot prove it, of course.
    Zija Int’l has an A+ rating SINCE 10.26.2012…go to yourself and check for yourself. False information to push her own capsules is what makes me believe she’s being paid to give false information and sell a different product.
    A quick BBB search completely negates what she’s said. Also, try and search for moringa oleifera and you will see for yourself there are THOUSANDS of positive research results showing the effective health transformations that result from the use of moringa oleifera.

  3. I received my sample pack yesterday I’m going to try one capsule today will let you’ll know how it does thank u

  4. Zija’s main products are based on the proper processing of the moringa oleifera plant which is the most nutritional botanical ever discovered and has been used as a natural supplement for centuries. If I were doing any one thing through Zija it would be a daily supplement of Supermix, XM+, Smartmix(with gut flora) or the new moringa based protein meal replacement shakes. There is more knowledge of nutrition and the downfalls of synthetic supplementation in Zija’s R&D division than the entire supplementation industry combined. Sure it’s a MLM (direct sales and no inventory) and those that promote the industry benefit according to how much product they move. Tell me another company that lets you be a join for $20/year and you can make money that same day 25% retail profits/25% rewards for products ordered on autoship/10% profits from your entire matched downline business that you created or your upline added to your team. People that say all MLM companies are bad don’t want to work, picked a crap company or they haven’t tried Zija, Ripstix, or Ameo. My autoships are like Christmas every month.

  5. My friend swore to me I could lose weight in a month by taking the Zija starter kit. So I had her order it. I’ve been on it for a month now and gained weight instead of losing. She told me several reasons after three weeks of why which doesn’t make sense since everyone she signed up is losing weight and I’m not. Now she tells me to try it for 45 days and see. Well, I don’t see how waiting another week is going to make a difference. But, I’m out over $240 on this starter kit plus $120 additional auto ship that I’m looking into returning. I got the shakes really bad from the xburn, and it made me nauseas. I feel like I got ripped off! 🙁

    1. Written in GENERAL and not just to SALLY

      I was brought in by a friend who footed the whole bill for me, so it cost me nothing to try it. and I’ve been very very pleased with the results. It doesn’t work for everybody. it has been said that sometimes it’s all in your mindset and if you go into this thinking “it won’t work!” over and over in your head then your right because you’ve already set it up to fail… but if you have WILL POWER! then it works for you.. You have to think positively and go forward with a desire to do better and feel better.. I started taking this and when I go grocery shopping with no food in my stomach or very little, I laugh all the way through the super market, Pastry section a JOKE, mmmmm hot cooked ready to eat whole chicken and potato wedges, LAUGHING! as I go past not even tempted.. I think people who assess stuff based on what they find from cranky people on the internet disappointed that they’ve been duped because they didn’t at least try, well them people they need to change something in their lives,, I don’t even touch sugar anymore and that is your biggest problem,, you cut that out and that’s half your battle, I used to mage a tall mug of TEA 6-8-10 times a day and put 2 heaping table spoons of sugar in it and if I was out of white sugar I used brown (YUMMY) now I use Stevia(all natural) and only one packet Calories ‘0’,, the problem with people in here is they are all here to shoot the medicine man because they themselves had no ambition and expect the MAGIC POTION to do EVERYTHING for them… wake up people,, if you want to do better you gotta stop running around feeling sorry for yourselves depressed because your hubby or wife left you, or because your doctor told you your sick and your never going to get better because we don’t have a cure for you.. miracles can happen but it starts with you and your outlook and your mindset,, if you wanna get better you gotta start by changing the way you think… “YES I CAN!” now get up off your miserable ass and do something about it.. start slow, do little things like walking around the block every single day then each day do it faster and faster, then 2 blocks the next week and so on.. then do little sit up just curl your head up off the floor and crunch and hold, then relax slowly, then crunch again and again and again,, and don’t give up! “YES I CAN!” and you will I promise you! These supplements have helped me tremendously because I DON’T CRAVE THE SUGARS ANYMORE,, I used to go to the back door and let my dogs out and hit the fridge on the way back to the couch, then get up and let them in and hit fridge on the way back. You want I’ll send you my pictures to prove the changes That I’m making and I feel great! Yes my wife left me and I don’t blame her, I deserve it. I’m feeling much much better now and ZIJA and MORINGA have helped me 110-150% because without them I’d still be hitting the fridge.. cereal at night, peanut butter and jam sandwich, cookies, ice cream, cake, donuts, French vanilla cream, and french vanilla cappuccinos at the coffee shop with over 500 calories in them.. NOT anymore! and imagine how much that is saving on my pocket book too.. my wallet..

      I’m doing 10 x’s better using Zija Products and I am the most skeptical person out there. I hate pyramid schemes and this aint no Pyramid scheme, I’m ONLY USING the products I’m not being forced to promote others into it, But Hey I just can’t help myself now can I? and do you blame me,, I want to help other people that are FAT OBESE, OVER WEIGHT, DEPRESSED, and OBSESSED to become healthier so all the rest of you cry babies out there that are so upset that POPPING a PILL never helped them to get off their FAT ASSES and DO SOMETHING to make POSITIVE CHANGE in their lives you need to keep on doing what your already doing,, because look at how that is working for you.. CONGRATULATIONS YOUR THE REAL WINNERS!

      Here’s your prize 😉 “I wish you all the happiness that you deserve!”

      ADMIN don’t delete I am NICE! but some people need a kick in the ass to get up and make change.. NOW DO IT! or stay rite where you are, because look at how that’s working for you!

  6. Any company professing to detox your body is selling snake oil. Your body does that on its own, especially with a proper diet and good old fashioned water. I’ve tried most of the Zija products, and while I don’t think they’re necessarily dangerous, they’re definitely expensive hype. XMPM: Gives me vivid, restless dreams, don’t sleep well. XMAM: Does nothing. XM+: Tastes absolutely vile, doesn’t dissolve well, gives an energy boost for a day, but made me extremely bloated if taken more than twice a week or so. XM Burn: Sweats, shakes, nausea, itchiness, no loss in appetite.

    1. DETOX! Green tea by any company is still just green tea except Zija’s which contains mostly MORINGA, will detox your body, so just start by doing just that! drink green tea every night before you go to bed, enjoy your nights sleep because if your getting better sleep then your body will in fact start feeling healthier and you will loose weight.. a tired body never rests because it’s always a struggle. so if you can make this one change in your life and you can in fact stick with it then your ready to move forward to the next step.. You don’t need our products to do it.. it all starts with you and your frame of mind.. so sit there and complain or do something about it? hmmm what do I do???


      But then so does eating green veggies, eat lots of veggies and stop eating garbage and you’ll stop diabetes in it’s tracks.. spinach, for iron, Carrots for vitamin A, Oranges for Vitamin C, Bananas for potassium and B2, Peanuts for B3, Milk for Calcium and eggs for protein and magnesium, frozen green peas are good for greens too.. Stop eating junk food, stop drinking coffee, no more hot dogs loaded with salt during manufacturing process and all that bleached rotten meat product.. oh and them fast food happy meals too! enjoy that! You detox yourself your own way..

      Or you can sit there shooting down a product that tries to help the few that actually want it.. CHANGE YOUR LIFE – CHANGE YOUR MIND SET!

      i”m fat,, BUT NOT FOR LONG! 😉
      With ZIJA I’m doing it!

  7. Xm burned worked wonders for me as well. I’m currently down a size 7/8 when I was a size 13 after three kids. I don’t recommend this but I eat anything I want and I don’t have much time to exercise or I just don’t try to make the time. I have kept the weight off. Nothing is perfect so I would suggest anyone reading this to try it!

  8. the company has a 30 day money back guarantee if the box is open or not.. you just have to ship the product back before the 30 days is up…you sure don’t know much about zija.. no one sales anyone anything.. you share information and then let the person make the best decision for themselves.. for this company to be bad as you claim it has sure helped a lot of people with their health and wealth

    1. ‘LIKE’

      I’m so happy to see possessive comments about ZIJA but wait people it’s not just that ZIJA has been backed by certified chemists that only want what’s good for you you not like MONSANTO who has certified chemists making genetically altered foods and feeding them to you! But yah you just keep eating all the store bought good for you foods.. or you can take a chance and try something healthy, healthy don’t come easy when you’ve been poisoned all your life.. it’s hard to get a food addict to break their habits but with ZIJA I’ve had no trouble doing it!

  9. XM Burn might not work on some people but it work for me,it help me a lot to manage my weights, i have monthly auto-shipment for over two years now and never had any problem, best thing about it my insurance pays 80% of it.
