Health Spark Thermo Burn Fat Burner Review
Sometimes the best deals on supplements can be found at the store, this is where I found Thermo Burn, but whether they really offer good value is question that has to be raised.
This product review includes cited references to relevant studies which can be found at the bottom of the page.

Themo Burn First Look
This is a very subdued supplement that I found by chance while out shopping for groceries.
I barely noticed the small bottle and found it near the aspirin I was searching for to calm a bit of a hangover I had.
In fact I initially thought it was paracetamol. The bottle is a metallic blue and white which is nothing like the bright red we are used to with fat burner supplements.
As such, Thermo Burn almost was missed.
Upon closer inspection there’s a ten day supply and it is suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Plus it was very cheap. Does this translate to good value though?
Who are Health Spark?
Health Spark have been in operation since 2008.
A bit of desktop research and digging makes me think that they normally produce and manufacture supplements for other brands.
This is their effort doing something for themselves.
This small range of products including Thermo Burn are Health Sparks’s way of getting a bit more exposure and a foothold in to the supplement market.
However, by looking on the internet there is very little about the product except some search results that are clearly advertorials trying to get you to buy the product.
They are very cleverly constructed, too.
Thermo Burn Claims
Health Spark are very modest about their claims, so much so that there aren’t any on the bottle or website.
Either that’s a lack of confidence or they are just not bothered.
Thermo Burn Ingredients: Analysis
Thankfully there is no proprietary blend present. Let’s look closely at the nutrient profile.
– Green Tea
Green tea is not a one trick pony. It has many well regarded and proven health benefits.
The catechins found in green tea may also increase physical endurance.
However, we are interested in how well it can reduce fat mass by triggering extra calorie burn.
And, the studies do not disappoint. There is evidence that demonstrates green tea can help reduce nearly 5% body weight after just 3 months consumption.
When combined with caffeine green tea has proven itself to increase metabolic rate to assist with weight loss for those people who are classed as overweight and moderately obese.
As already mentioned, caffeine can help reduce weight by increasing your metabolic rate, plus, it is particularly effective when combined with green tea.
So, already we are on to a winner here.
But, in addition, if you are particularly active, caffeine has been proven to increase energy, endurance and alertness while also improving muscle recovery.
– Vitamin B12
Being a member of the B vitamins it has a key role in energy production.
Vitamin B also assists in other areas of bodily function, too.
These include improved cognitive function, prevention of muscle wastage, reducing fatigue and improving your metabolism.
– Niacin (B3)
Niacin is a slightly odd inclusion.
That’s not to say it is not often found in many supplements.
Nicain does not have a list of health benefits as long as your arm, however, it does help release energy from foods and maintains healthy hair plus skin.
Remember, the skin is your largest organ, so it pays to keep it in good health. 
The capsaicinoids found in chilli peppers are able to promote calorie burn by increasing the metabolic rate through a processes called thermogenesis.
Hence why sometimes you may hear of thermogenic nutrients in fat burner supplements.
They also affect endorphin levels which can promote feelings of happiness.
Take 2 pills per day.
It is also better to spread the pills out over the course of the day rather than take them in one sitting.
That way you maintain a high level of the thermogenic ingredients working to increase your metabolism.
If you get too much of certain ingredients, that what the body doesn’t need at the time will be wasted and you will not feel the benefit.
Therefore, if you have a massive dose of Zinc yet your body is still processing and utilizing Zinc from a meal you’ve recently had or a drink it will not process any extra that is not required.
What the body doesn’t require at the time will let it pass.
Thus, a higher chance of waste and less benefits.
Thermo Burn Serving
Two pills per day amount to just over a total of 404mg.
This is really low overall. And hence, the cheap price.
This is about a quarter of what you would find in the best fat burner supplements.
Thermo Burn Cost
$13.38 / £10
This initial outlay may seem cheap, however, it doesn’t really offer a great deal of value as you will need to buy more bottles for a months supply and it omits many other ingredients.
Each of the included five ingredients will offer some health benefit.
That’s a good start.
However, just the four ingredients help with burning more calories to help you create a calorie deficit.
This is a very low daily dose. And there’s more…
The supply per bottle is only enough for ten days, so that means buying more bottles. Three per month to be exact.
That means the price will go up.
But there’s a problem with that very low daily dose and the dosing strategy.
The low dose will not be that beneficial.
Niacin is of benefit, but it is not going to help you lose fat.
it would have been more beneficial to increase the overall dose of the other ingredients or and offer more proven ingredients.
Any unwanted Thermo Burn side effects?
In very rare cases Niacin may cause a couple of issues.
Niacin may cause upset stomach, dizziness and bring on gout.
If you take a huge amount of Niacin (this only has 4.8mg) such as 3g it can cause liver problems, ulcers of the digestive tract loss of vision and an irregular heartbeat.
My Health Spark Thermo Burn Fat Burner Review Conclusion
While this does include four proven and beneficial ingredients to help stimulate fat burn, it also misses out on many other tried and tested ingredients that would improve performance.
The daily dose is also extremely low and there’s only a 10 day supply per bottle.
While there is nothing wrong with the ingredients included it just provides them in a short supply and it is missing may others that would also be of great benefit.
A such, I must answer the initial question which was raised. Does this offer good value?
On the face of it, a low price and some good evidence supported ingredients does seem like good value.
The supply is low. And the ingredients need more.
So, in essence, you wold need to buy three bottles for a monthly supply, and may be even supplement it with further nutrients for optimal effects.
As such, it does not strike me as being good value.
