Infinite Labs Elevate Series Final Cutz Fat Burner Review
Infinite Labs Elevate Series Final Cutz Fat Burner Review First Look:
After yesterdays food debacle which mainly consisted of chocolate, today I am hoping to be much more focused.
I’ve been good so far by just having eggs on toast for breakfast, countless cups of coffee (standard) and now I have just devoured tuna with rice and a bit of hot chilli sauce which I include with everything.
That said, one of my clients is leaving today to return back to Germany before heading back to the USA for further study.
Therefore there’s lots of cake floating around the office that I will just have to sample.
So, as ever, a fast ride home on my bicycle to hit the weights then head over to my girlfriends’ place for a late night TV session and (another) cup of coffee.
All the time i am striving to maintain a physique that I can be proud of whilst also being useful.
I could not bare to look muscular yet have no functional strength, so strength training is my focus with high weight and low reps.
In order to keep my fat levels in check due to my compulsive desire to eat anything that seems to fall in front of me, I also use fat burners hence why we are here looking square in the face of Infinite Labs’ Final Cutz fat burner.
Let’s see if it has the minerals to be a winner like Instant Knockout which I use regularly to keep me trim and allow my abs to be visible.
Vitamin C – Its antioxidant properties mean vitamin C provides neuroprotective effects and benefits for blood flow.
By protecting the testes from oxidative stress, vitamin C can also preserve testosterone levels.
Vitamin D – A great Testosterone boosting vitamin that must be taken advantage of to trigger further production of Testosterone in your body.
However, there are two types of Vitamin D. There’s calciferol (vitamin D2) and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) – we are only interested in cholecalciferol which is D3; this is the type our skin synthesizes from the sun and becomes a hormone which results in the increases in our testosterone.
Research by the US Library of Medicine has shown that testosterone productions are increased with Vitamin D3 supplementation.
Vitamin K – Helps clot blood and stem bleeding when cut.
Thiamine (Vitamin B1) – Thiamine is required by our bodies to properly use carbohydrates.
Some research suggests that taking thiamine together with pantethine and pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) does not improve muscle strength or endurance in athletes.
Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5) – Pantothenic acid, as with other B vitamins are able to convert your food in to energy.
They’re also able to help you body use fats and proteins effectively, notwithstanding the creation of red blood cells which carry oxygen to your muscles.
Vitamin B6 – Comprising three chemically distinct compounds pyridoxal, pyridoxamine, and pyridoxine, is involved in the regulation of mental function and mood.
Vitamin B6 is also an essential homocysteine re-methylation cofactor, and deficiency is associated with increase in blood homocysteine levels.
Homocysteine is a risk factor for cerebrovascular disease and may also have directly toxic effects on neurons of the central nervous system.
Neuropsychiatric disorders including seizures, migraine, chronic pain and depression have been linked to vitamin B6 deficiency.
Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) – Gives you more energy and boost your metabolism, helping you shed unwanted pounds. Ensure you are not deficient in Vitamin B12 so you can do that quick 10 miler at 5am…
Riboflavin (B2) – Important for body growth and red blood cell production. It also aids in the release of energy from proteins.
Niacinamide (Vit B3) – Higher amounts of niacin can improve cholesterol levels and lower cardiovascular risks and maybe symptoms for Alzheimer’s . However, the jury is out on these real benefits.
Folate – Being low on folate means you are unable to absorb nutrients properly from the bowel.
Biotin – Biotin is an important component of enzymes in the body that break down certain substances like fats, carbohydrates, and others.
Zinc – A study in 2013 showed that people suffering from obesity had low levels of Zinc. Also, if you are deficient in Zinc it means you cannot absorb the nutrients from your food in the intestine.
Magnesium – Magnesium deficiencies are common in developed countries. A deficiency increases blood pressure, reduces glucose tolerance and causes neural excitation.
Supplementation of magnesium is not very effective at reducing fat mass.
Selenium – No conclusive proof even when supplemented with Zinc that selenium increases testosterone levels.
Potassium – Potassium levels change with sodium levels to keep muscles working properly throughout your body, especially your heart.
Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) – Full of vitamins but not a great deal of human research to suggest that it can suppress appetite or lower blood sugar levels.
Cissus Quadrangularis – Due to the ability of cissus quadrangularis to act as a glucocorticoid antagonist, it has been proposed to possess anabolic activity; no studies have yet addressed this topic.
Anecdotes of cissus seem to precede much of the science on the topic.
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.
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.
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.
Betaine (trimethylglycine) – This has been recommended as a compound that will increase athletic performance.
However, results from studies have been quite unreliable thus far of Betaine.
A dose of 12500mg has been linked to increased power output, very minimal increase of workout volume and slight endurance. Then again studies have showed no increase of any of the aforementioned parameters.
6, 7, dihydroxybergamottin (DHB, Grapefruit) – Fat mass appears to be reduced more in groups consuming grapefruit relative to placebo.
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.
BioPerine (Piper nigrum) – The extract of piperine, called BioPerine® in the patented form, has been clinically tested in the United States.
BioPerine® significantly enhances the bioavailability of various supplement nutrients through increased absorption.
Creatinol O-Phosphate (COP) – When injected this can alleviate heart complications. No evidence it can do anything when consumed orally.
Omega 3 – Supplementation of Omega 3 does not alter endocrine gland responsiveness (the testes are a major endocrine gland), but it does help with inflammation.
Coenzyme Q10 – Our body makes CoQ10, and your cells use it to produce energy your body needs for cell growth and maintenance.
It also functions as an antioxidant, which protects the body from damage caused by harmful molecules.
Alpha Lipoic Acid – Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant made by the body. It is found in every cell, where it helps turn glucose into energy. Antioxidants attack “free radicals,” waste products created when the body turns food into energy. Free radicals cause harmful chemical reactions that can damage cells, making it harder for the body to fight off infections.
Abieta-8 11 13-trien-18-oic acid (DEHYDROABIETIC ACID DHAA, Pine Rosin Extract) – The only real information found of scholarly clout is that this maybe anti-estrogenic in rainbow trout.
Yes, fish! There’s a lot of shit flying around forums but realistically these are the people who say a lot and actually do less.
I do not see the real value of having this in a supplement. This is found in another testosterone booster we reviewed.
It is worth noting that Pine Bark Extract (Pycnogenol) at best will be anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory.
Banaba (Lagerstroemia) – Not a great deal of research on this, however, it does seem to inhibit absorption of carbohydrates.
Tienchi Ginseng – Results from tests show that this is useful for controlling hypertension.
6 capsules per day.
The daily dose of 2998.342mg is a good amount of combined ingredients.
In fact, this dose is fair when you consider that the best fat burners which tend to offer in excess of 3000mg.
Effects & Benefits:
There are just 7 ingredient included that has concrete evidence to help with fat loss and that are safe.
That is a poor number of ingredients considering there are 31 ingredients included.
Yes, you read that correct. 31 ingredients!
It is reassuring to see Green Tea, Caffeine, Magnesium, B6, B12 and Zinc included
These ingredients are found in the best fat burner, Instant Knockout.
Yohimbe and Bitter Orange can help with fat mass but they are both potentially dangerous ingredients and should really be avoided.
Clearly, when you read through the ingredients it is obvious there are further ingredients that can offer benefits…
Be this to increase testosterone levels, antioxidants, help absorb nutrients better, produce red blood cells or even create energy.
However, this is a fat burner and marketed as such, therefore I want all of the ingredients to be powerful and effect enough to help reduce fat mass.
I want the supplement to be focused.
I think it is important to note, that while there’s a healthy weight of ingredients per serving, due to the absurd amount of ingredients we’re not exactly getting massive amounts per ingredient.
It is a little bit sparsely distributed.
So to only have 7 proven, effective and safe fat burning ingredients does seem poor when you consider the best fat burner includes 10 focused and proven fat burning ingredients.
Nothing else that is not required is included in Instant Knockout. Nothing that will not have an effect on increasing the metabolism is wasted on this.
Then there are 5 ingredients included that have no proof to illustrate that they have any benefit at all.
It is worth mentioning again that Yohimbe and Bitter Orange can cause anything from sun sensitivity to heart attacks and strokes. It should be used with caution in mind.
Infinite Labs Elevate Series Final Cutz Fat Burner Review Conclusion:
With such a large number of ingredients it is surprising to find that only 7 included can offer any safe fat burning potential.
It is also a shame to see that 2 further ingredients can cause health problems, and as such should be avoided.
A major issue is that while this offers a lot of ingredients, there’s not a huge amount of mass to be shared.
Then, it is not particularly focused on reducing fat mass with a host of other ingredients seemingly included for a variety of other matters.
Therefore, some other products such as those in our top 3 fat burners are more far more attractive propositions.
