BioTech USA Super Fat Burner Review
BioTech USA Super Fat Burner First Look:
With summer fast approaching and if you are like me, you do not have too much time to spare you are looking to do anything that may assist in your quest for fat loss.
Yes, you’re already taking chicken and veg in tubs to work for your lunch.
Yes, you’ve cut out snacking on chips and cut out soda.
Yes, you’re exercising more.
No, not all of the weight is going as quickly as you would like.
There’s is help out there. Unfortunately fat loss, like muscle building is not an overnight success story.
It does take time and plenty of hard graft, but it can be done and it can also be accelerated.
This where fat burners come in to play. They contain, or at least they should contain, a number of proven ingredients that help raise your metabolism and in turn burn more calories.
They can also contain stimulants which keep you awake and energetic so you can hit the gym or go for that run.
These are the basics for a fat burner, yet so many miss the mark by a long shot.
Yet, when done correctly they can really help you power through those plateaus and reach your desired weight.
This fat burner from BioTech USA look the part, but if it is anything like the pre workout supplement I tried not too long ago we could be in for a disappointment.
Branch Chain Amino Acids – BCAAs (typically a combination of L-Leucine, L-IsoLeucine and L-Valine) play a critical role in muscle development because they are metabolized in the muscle rather than the liver.
Because BCAAs are metabolized in the muscle, they can be used for building new proteins or for energy. However, Supplementation is not necessary if you eat eggs and meat regularly.
Conjugated Linolenic Acid (CLA) – Initial reports and studies have showed that CLA helped a bunch of women who did no exercise lose 9% body fat.
However, further studies are showing very mixed, if not medicore results that aren’t really setting the world alight, in fact the side effects are having their presence felt moreso outweighing any real benefits.
Any benefits that were found meant that the composition had to be greater than 80%.
Garcinia Cambogia – Supposedly helps people lose weight, however, trials have been unsubstantiated or at least unimpressive.
Any tests run where there has been a glimmer of hope have been in stage 1 obese people.
Chromium – Research suggests that chromium might improve weight loss in some people who are overweight or obese.
Zinc – Supplementation of Zinc in studies on obese participants it has shown that the mean weight, BMI, BMI Z-score decreased significantly.
Biotin – Biotin is an important component of enzymes in the body that break down certain substances like fats, carbohydrates, and others.
Lecithin – May help those who are suffering from liver disease.
Doesn’t help those with high cholesterol nor enhance athletic ability.
Green Tea – well known to have many powerful health benefits. Clinical studies suggest that green tea extract may boost metabolism and help burn fat.
One study found that the combination of green tea and caffeine improved weight loss and maintenance in people who were overweight and moderately obese.
Some researchers think that substances in green tea known as catechins are responsible for the herb’s fat-burning effect. Green tea extract is found in many a good fat burning supplement.
Chitosan – Some research suggests that combining chitosan with a calorie-restricted diet might result in a small amount of weight loss.
L-carnitine – Acetyl-L-carnitine helps the body produce energy. It is important for heart and brain function, muscle movement, and many other body processes.
It is a very popular supplement and widely proven to be active drugs for the therapy of symptoms associated with male aging.
Some studies show that oral carnitine may help reduce fat mass, increase muscle mass, and reduce fatigue, which may contribute to weight loss in some people.
L-carnitine Tartrate – Men who were supplemented 2g per day showed an increase of Insulin like growth hormone when combined with exercise.
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).
The advice is to take 2 tablets twice daily which equates to just over 1079mg.
This is significantly less the best fat burners offer which offer around two thirds more than this per day.
Effects & Benefits:
This effectively contains 11 ingredients, however, not all 11 are effective at helping reduce fat mass.
We have 2 proven and effective ingredients plus then a further 7 ingredients that could also help. Although results have been a bit patchy and not entirely conclusive throughout testing phases.
So the Green Tea and Zinc are often found in other, well regarded fat burners for their known abilities to help users lose weight and fat.
Then we have CLA which appears to have performed well in 1 trial but not so well in further studies, plus the composition has to be greater than 80%.
Carnitine looks to be good for providing energy and reducing fat mass.
Chitosan and Chromium are offering some positive results which would lean towards fat loss in trials.
Garcinia seems to offer positive results for those who are obese.
The daily dose is really low and it is coming in at around one third less than the best fat burners on the market.
While there’s a lot of positives surrounding the number of ingredients and the included ingredients, only 2 offer a solid performance in tests.
The remainder are slightly less consistent.
CLA must also be of 80% composition but we are not given the composition for the dose included here.
However, overall, a major flaw is the omission of the use of other proven ingredients such as:
- Cayenne Pepper
BioTech USA Super Fat Burner Review Conclusion:
It is difficult to judge just how well a fat burner can perform when so many ingredients have offered mixed results in tests and trials.
However, that is part of the problem. It’s mainly made up on ingredients that are not conclusive. Therefore it is a bit hit and miss.
So why would you buy a product that could be good or it could just not be effective?
Judging by the low amount offered and by just 2 proven ingredients I would err on the side of caution and give this a miss, especially as there are already proven products on the market that offer 8 or more conclusive ingredients.
