Advanced Molecular Labs Thermo Heat Fat Burner Review
Advanced Molecular Labs Thermo Heat Fat Burner Review First Look:
I am about to head to the gym and hit some deadlifts.
It has been a while since I have hit the deadlifts merely down to time rather than anything else. I completely understand their importance and have seen their advantages in use…not for lifting up shopping bags but for rugby.
A strong core can provide an absolute wealth of benefits when on the pitch.
They are a great exercise for shedding fat too. The exercise puts your body under an immense amount of stress which translates to hard, all over body muscle, strength and a lot of calories being burnt which then carries over and keeps your metabolism raised long after your session has finished.
Why am I back on the deadlifts you may ask?
Well, as already stated they’re a great all body exercise that can boost muscle growth strength and your testosterone levels. Also, due to the calories burnt it can help you with your weight loss goals.
They’re perfect for both men and women too.
Another thing that can help your fat loss goals is a well researched fat burner with proven ingredients that can help increase energy and calorie expenditure.
This is where Thermo Heat comes in, or at least we hope.
We have already tried the Thermo Heat Nighttime fat burner from the same Advanced Molecular Labs which came out at only 2 stars so not really worth bothering with.
This looks exactly the same apart from the color of the text on the bottle. Otherwise though, the ingredient profile looks worlds apart.
BioPerine – The extract of piperine, called BioPerine® in the patented form, has been clinically tested in the United States.
FucoPure (Fucoxanthin, Undaria Pinnatifida) – There’s reasons to believe there are many health related benefits by supplementing Fucoxanthin which is also known as seaweed, however, the bio-availability in humans is low.
Yet, over a period of 16 weeks 5mg per day may help fat loss.
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.
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.
Limited supplemental usage due to being rapidly broken down into inactive components.
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.
Capsicum (Cayenne) – Known to boost metabolism, cayenne causes the body to produce extra heat and burn more calories for fuel. This is found in our favorite fat burner Instant Knockout.
Holy Basil – Traditionally used as a Testosterone Booster, although no direct evidence exists in humans for this. It has also been demonstrated to hinder reproductive capacity.
L-Dopa Velvet Bean (Macuna Pruriens) – This is actually good for treating people with Parkinsons. There’s a mixed bag of results for testosterone but look mainly positive.
Results have shown an increase in testosterone levels in infertile men, however, results are very limited for fertile men. It is effective to reduce cortisol levels – high stress levels can harm testosterone production.
Yohimbe – Related to Yohimbine, Yohimbe is a powerful stimulant and used to increase fat loss as well as assist with erectile dysfunction. Can cause a host of other problems though, this is in our supplements to avoid list.
Supplementation with yohimbine combined with resistance training does not significantly alter the body mass, muscle mass, or performance indicators.
Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) – Ginger has a great ability to reduce body weight without inhibiting pancreatic lipase level, or affecting bilirubin concentration, with positive effect on increasing peroxisomal catalase level and HDL-cholesterol.
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.
Hesperidin – Looks to be possibly effective for blood flow, but there’s limited research available.
Naringin – This displays strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities. Known as a citrus flavonoid and found in grapefruit, it is also good for reducing cholesterol, high blood pressure, overall obesity as well as improving cardiovascular health.
Olive – Olive oil is widely used in many foods and its ability, like avocado, to reduce the bad (LDL) cholesterol is fairly well known. These are great to have in your diet.
While implicated in various fat burning effects (increased thyroid hormones and adrenaline) there does not appear to be any overall fat lost in trials.
Cinnamon – Helps diabetics avoid blood sugar spikes and it also improves glucose use in the cell itself. It does contain a liver toxin called coumarin, which can be harmful in high doses.
Turmeric – Finding itself more popular and being included in a variety of products, yet we find this most puzzling. Why? Well regardless to the fact that it has no link to testosterone stimulation it also has very poor bio-availability rendering it useless when ingested. This is included in our top 10 ingredients that do not work.
Tangerine Peel – The peel seems to be able to lower cholesterol according to studies.
Peel derived compounds are digested and metabolized effectively, moreso than juice.
Sophora Japonica – The supposed benefits of Sophora Japonica is to treat dysentery but there’s not enough evidence to support this.
There seems to be some evidence to support its use as a anti-inflammatory to help alleviate hemorrhoids but may also help reduce cerebral infarction. This is an area of the brain whereby the cells have died due to lack of oxygen.
Ox Bile – Used in China for hundreds if not thousands of years.
Ox bile has been used to treat hemorrhoids because the acids of Ox bile contain properties that are able to shrink body tissues.
There’s very little of any scientific evidence to suport any other claims or benefits, particularly for weight loss.
The advice is to take up to 4 capsules daily which provides a positively generous 2520mg daily.
This is a low daily dose when compared with the best fat burners which tend to offer in excess of 3000mg.
Effects & Benefits:
There are a whopping 19 ingredients included within this blend but just 2520mg per day.
That means if they were included in this blend in equal amounts we would receive just 132mg per ingredient.
What we do know is that there are 5 safe and effective ingredients that can help with reducing fat mass.
A few of these are commonly found in the best fat burners available.
We often laud Caffeine and Cayenne Pepper for their effectiveness at increasing the users metabolism by thermogenic effects and thus increasing the calories burnt.
Naringin often appears too. It is able to reduce overall obesity effect as can Ginger.
Velvet Bean is not a thermogenic or directly able to increae energy or calorie expenditure but it is an anti-inflammatory. High inflammation is a cause of obesity.
Bioperine while not able to offer any benefit as such can aid the absorption of the ingredients.
Let’s start by stating that this is a proprietary blend and as such we have no idea to the exact amount of each ingredient that is contained within.
This is a big often overlooked scam found in the supplement biz.
I suggested that we may get 132mg per ingredient, the truth is that is most likely very optimistic.
Plus, having just 5 solid fat burning ingredients in the whole supplement is not very good, we would expect at least 8 proven and effective ingredients.
That means we have a huge 13 ingredients which offer no proof that they are effective, offer no bio-availability inhibiting their effectiveness or are not safe to use.
Yohimbe and Citrus Aurantium are all very well being good fat burners but the risk far outweigh the benefits.
Cinnamon can also be toxic in high doses, good job we have no idea how much is included because who doesn’t like living life on the edge!?
Advanced Molecular Labs Thermo Heat Fat Burner Review Conclusion:
This offers far too few scientifically proven, useful and effective ingredients to stimulate fat burn which is a shame considering it is packed with 19 ingredients.
However, all of these ingredients are concealed within a proprietary blend which means we have no idea if we have a trace amount or an equal amount of each. For this we cannot trust it.
There’s also 3 ingredients that can cause harmful side effects which is always popular…for the masochists of us all.
With this in mind it is not a fat burner we can recommend the use of. Why risk your health, fat burn benefits and your money on a product that will not disclose how much of each ingredient they include and only offer 5 useful ingredients at best?
There’s far better available, you can read our top 3 fat burners here.
