Labrada Lean Body Fat Loss Support Fat Burner Review // What Can We Expect?
Labrada Lean Body Fat Loss Support Fat Burner First Look:
We have already seen the female version of this fat burner before, and it didn’t score too well. Nor am I keen on supplements that focus on gender.
However, as I slowly digest my fried eggs on cheese on toast with a side of fried tomato I will start to consider anything that will help to increase my metabolism and burn off a few extra calories.
Needless to say I have a rugby game in about 2 hours and the way my cardiovascular fitness is looking I may need to be stretchered off, and you aint burning many calories laying in an ambulance.
This particular fat burner from Labrada, while not stating it is formulated for men certainly has more of a masculine look and feel to it. The darker reds plus a bit of racy carbon fiber effect really makes me feel like a real alpha male…sort of
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 Coffee Bean – Green coffee beans are coffee beans that have not yet been roasted. These coffee beans contain a higher amount of the chemical chlorogenic acid.
For weight loss, chlorogenic acid in green coffee is thought to affect how the body handles blood sugar and metabolism. This is found in our favorite fat burner, Instant Knockout.
Calcium – Results show that training results in increased testosterone levels in athletes and that the increase is greater if accompanied by calcium supplementation.
However, a recent study has warned against calcium supplementation due to the increased risk of a heart attack.
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.
Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5) – One of 8 B vitamins. All B vitamins help the body convert food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose), which the body uses to produce energy. These B vitamins, often referred to as B complex vitamins, also help the body use fats and protein.
B complex vitamins are needed for healthy skin, hair, eyes, and liver. They also help the nervous system function properly and is critical to the manufacture of red blood cells.
Choline BiTartrate – Choline is mostly used for either its cognitive boosting properties or as a liver health agent, able to reduce fatty liver buildup.
It may also be a stimulant although this is based on anecdote. Requires around 250-500mg per day for cognitive benefits. Choline does not offer any significant benefits for aerobic capacity, fatigue or training capacity.
L-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).
Naringin – This displays strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities. Known as a citrus flavonoid and found in grapfruit, it is also good for reducing cholesterol, high blood pressure, overall obesity as well as improving cardiovascular health.
Paradoxine (Aframomum Melegueta/Grains of Paradise) – Oral ingestion of GP extract increases energy expenditure.
L-Carnitine-L-Tartrate – Men who were supplemented 2g per day showed an increase of Insulin like growth hormone when combined with exercise.
We are instructed to take no more than 2 capsules per day, we are also instructed to take them just before a meal.
We are only offered 1172mg per day. That is horrendously low which ever way you look at it.
Effects & Benefits:
Coffee bean are found in Instant Knockout, which is our favorite fat burner. Because it is a proven and effective ingredient to help stimulate fat burn.
Naringin is a really good addition and is not seen enough in fat burning supplements wich is odd considering the benefits.
There’s Citrus Aurantium which is a fat burning agent, however, it is potentially dangerous, particularly when taken with stimulants such as Caffeine.
Vitamin B5 can help the body convert food in to fuel which is great to have, however, more B vitamins would have been useful such as B6 and B12.
It is good to see the inclusion of Carnitine-L-Tartrate plus Grains of Paradise.
There’s also the presence of a couple if ingredients which can help with cognitive function that are commonly found in Nootropics.
So overall, there’s some decent, proven and well regarded ingredients.
Citrus Aurantum is deemed potentially unsafe and can cause a heart attack in extreme cases. Nor does it seem to really offer any performance benefits.
Calcium can plaque arteries also potentially causing cardiovascular problems that Citrus Aurantium may have missed.
The dose is very low, it should be doubled however, with the inclusion of Citrus Aurantium higher doses increase the risk of creating problems.
While I do not oppose ingredients to assist with cognitive function, do we need so many in a product that really isn’t specifically trying to offer those kind of benefits?
The addition of Carnitine-L-Tartrate is welcome but it needs to be dosed by at least 2000mg, we only get 90mg in this daily serving which is substantially lower.
Theacrine doesn’t really seem to offer too much in the way of benefits. It seems to be too mild and the research isn’t all there yet to cast any solid aspersions.
Labrada Lean Body Fat Loss Support Fat Burner Review Conclusion:
I would say this has a better range of ingredients that its sister product, however, that doesn’t mean this is a particularly effective fat burner.
The problem really lays with this low daily dose. This really adds hindrance to some otherwise good ingredients.
Then you do have potentially dangerous Citrus Aurantium and calcium won’t help either when they are combined.
The inclusion of nootropic ingredients isn’t to be sniffed at, but they would have been better replaced with ingredients such as Cayenne Pepper, more Caffeine, Zinc and Glucomman.
Then the real issue comes not with just how poor this is, but how much better other products are.
