Adaptogen Science Furian Xtreme Fat Burner Review
Adaptogen Science Furian Xtreme Fat Burner Review First Look:
We are at that time of year whereby everyone is suddenly a bit more conscious of their body and whether they have started a little too late to start hitting the gym.
I personally know I am not at my peak, but now I have a regular cycling routine in place it should help shift a few unwanted pounds.
Having moved house as well gives me more time to prepare nutritious and healthy meals that are not likely to start piling on the fat.
I also take an effective fat burner to help raise my metabolism and burn more calories throughout the day.
This is exactly what we are looking for with this supplement too. We need it to help burn more calories and therefore stimulate fat burn.
On the face of it I do like the look of the packaging, it looks to be of a decent quality and it stands out.
There’s also no mistaking in what its intentions are. This is to burn fat , pure and simple.
Tyrosine – Tyrosine is taken for depression, attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), the inability to stay awake (narcolepsy), and improving alertness following sleep deprivation.
It is also used for stress, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome(CFS).
Acetyl Tyrosine is a more soluble form of tyrosine.
Theacrine (1,3,7,9-tetramethyluric acid) – An alkaloid molecule which can be seen as a structurally modified version of caffeine.
However, although it is similar to caffeine whereby it has a sedative effect at relatively low doses, but where this sedative effect with caffeine is at an impractically low dose with theacrine it is the dose normally consumed by tea.
Research on Theacrine is really too sparse though to cast any real assertions.
Black Pepper Extract – Black Pepper is a source of piperine, a molecule that does not do much on its own but can inhibit enzymes that would attack other molecules. Due to this, it is ingested alongside some supplements to increase their absorption rates.
Caffeine – This can assist with endurance, tested athletes saw an edge from caffeine in scientific studies. In some trials, the stimulant boosted athletes’ speed. In others, it helped them last longer before they spent all their energy.
Caffeine also raises the metabolism which means you burn more calories. Some studies show that it can curb soreness after exercise, too. This means you could get back to your training sooner and training means more calories burnt. This is present in all 3 of our Top Fat Burners.
Caffeine Anhydrous is the purest form so always look for that.
Forslean (Coleus forskohlii) – Forskolin is a chemical found in the roots of the plant Plectranthus barbatus.
This plant has been used since ancient times to treat heart disorders such as high blood pressure and chest pain (angina), as well as respiratory disorders such as asthma, it can also assist with reducing fat mass in obese people.
However, no reliable scientific information that shows Coleus forskohlii extracts taken by mouth are effective.
Paradoxine (Aframomum Melegueta/Grains of Paradise) – Oral ingestion of GP extract increases energy expenditure.
Bitter Orange (Citrus Aurantium) – At present, Citrus aurantium may be the best thermogenic substitute for ephedra. However, more studies are needed to establish this definitively.
Bitter orange is possibly unsafe when taken as a supplement for a medical purpose such as weight loss. Bitter orange, particularly when taken with stimulants such as caffeine or caffeine-containing herbs, increases the risk for high blood pressure, fainting, heart attack, stroke, and other severe side effects.
There are reports that bitter orange can trigger headaches, including migraine and cluster headaches, in some people.
Bitter orange can cause sensitivity to the sun. Wear sunblock outside, especially if you are light-skinned.
The advice is to take just 1 capsule daily which provides a wholly inadequate 572.5mg.
This is a very low daily dose when compared with the best fat burners which tend to offer in excess of 3000mg.
Plus, it is more effective to continuously feed your body with the nutrients required to raise your metabolism throughout the day.
This is usually achieved by taking 4 capsules over the course of the day.
Effects & Benefits:
Just two, safe and effective ingredients are contained within this fat burner.
These are Caffeine and Grains of Paradise.
Tyrosine can help with alertness and staying awake.
Bitter Orange is also an effective fat burning ingredient but it isn’t without its negative qualities.
Black Pepper/Bioperine helps with the absorption of these ingredients.
Coleus does not work when taken orally, thus it seems pointless being included.
Theacrine offers benefits similar to Caffeine, however, the strength is much less to the point of being beneficial.
Bitter Orange is actually a great fat burning ingredient. The problem is, it can also be quite dangerous especially for the cardiovascular system and should be avoided.
The daily dose is staggeringly low and much lower than other fat burners which are considered the best on the market.
The other fat burners also offer more doses throughout the day to provide an optimal amount for your body to work with.
Adaptogen Science Furian Xtreme Fat Burner Review Conclusion:
So how effective is this fat burner? Realistically it only contains 2 solid fat burning ingredients and that is from a total of 7.
Okay, Bitter Orange could qualify as the 3rd effective ingredient but it is also potentially dangerous.
Which brings me on to the next point, do you really want to take a potentially dangerous supplement?
I don’t, not when there are far superior and safer fat burners on the market.
This is also substantially lower dosed than many other fat burners that it seems almost pointless trying it.
That is the problem, why would you use this when there’s significantly better options available?
