MyProtein Thermopure Fat Burner Review
With summer quietly teasing us with its longer days and lighter nights it is time for many people to put that bulk to good use and start cutting so they look great for IG.
I personally want to lose a bit of wasted mass so all of my weight is just muscle and useful.
I will have to start jogging a lot more soon which I always find a pain at my weight, and particularly my height because I do not have long legs.
This is why my preferred cardio exercise is either talking for hours on end or cycling to work where I can to try and at least improve my cardiovascular system.
However, I also want to accelerate this fat loss as I not only have my Army Reserves assessment weekend looming but a vacation to Mexico, too.
This is exactly where an effective fat burner can help.
Fat burners can give you that edge whereby you burn the extra calories required which help toward creating that deficit which can lead to fat loss.
Especially if you cannot commit to a really good and consistent cardio regime.
It probably is not fair to say that MyProtein are an emerging force because their keenly priced supplements have been attracting legions of return customers for years now with their basic, no-nonsense packaging.
However, I spoke to a big wig from Glanbia (who control numerous premium nutrition brands) not too long ago who told me the materials they use for their supplements are not the premium quality as found in some brands such as Optimum Nutrition or BSN.
What can a fat burner really do?
You may well be surprised actually.
The idea that an effective fat burner just magically makes your waist smaller is far from the truth.
However, only the effective fat burners contain a number of ingredients in correct doses that work harmoniously and through a number of outcomes help you lose fat mass, not muscle.
Their benefits include, but are not limited to:
- Increase energy – This will help you be more active and stimulate you for effective workouts
- Thermogenic – These ingredients will increase the temperature of your core which increases calorie expenditure
- Appetite control – The ability to feel fuller and not to fall for sweet, calorie laden treats
As a result I tend to supplement my exercise regime with a fat burner supplement.
I have found Instant Knockout to offer the best results and as a result I try to use that daily.
Ingredients: The Science
A 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.
It has been shown to help lose almost 5% body weight over a three month period.
Green tea extract is found in many a good fat burning supplement.
B12 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…
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.
The studies say that Theanine is great for reducing stress, reducing anxiety as well as helping alleviating insomnia.
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).
This mineral helps your body use fats and carbohydrates more effectively for energy production.
It also helps move glucose from the bloodstream and in to the cells for energy.
This is found in Instant Knockout.
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.
Using it in its most natural form, pyridoxine, B6 is an essential nutrient to raising the body’s metabolism and aiding the fat burning process.
It also contributes to the reduction of fatigue and if you are not getting enough B6 you can suffer from cognitive decline as well as depression.
B6 also contributes to normal and healthy hormone levels.
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.
Three pills to be taken daily.
It is good to spread out the dose across the course of the day to ensure our body has a constant supply of ingredients to process rather than peaks and troughs.
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 Magnesium for instance yet your body is still processing and utilizing Magnesium from a meal you’ve recently had it will only use what is required.
What the body doesn’t require at the time will let it pass. Thus, a higher chance of waste and less benefits.
It is better to have a continued trickle effect.
This results in a daily dose just a shade over 910mg which is low when compared to competitors.

There are nine ingredients present, and to be fair, a quick glance looks like we could be on to a winner, even at this low price.
I want to delve a little deeper and see what benefits this fat burner from Thermopure offers those (and me) looking to burn additional fat and chip away at those fat stores that have decided to hang over our waistbands.
Let’s see what we have here.
B12 is able to speed up the metabolism and provide extra energy to work hard.
Green Tea is a proven ingredient that we see in all of the better fat burner supplements on the market.
Cayenne is also proven and can raise the core body temperature which in turn raises the metabolism burning more calories at rest to get closer to that calorie deficit.
Caffeine not only increase focus, energy but helps with recovery so you’re not aching as much which could put you off that extra session in the gym.
Theanine is extra beneficial when taken with Caffeine, this way it can improve IQ scores and generally improve overall cognitive function.
Chromium is another ingredient found in the best fat burner because it enables your body to use fats and carbs properly as well as transport glucose from the cells for energy.
Tyrosine helps fight off fatigue and improves concentration, this way you can get off the sofa and focus on that set of squats.
B6 helps maintain healthy hormone levels, fights depression and provides energy. If you are lacking in B6 you may as well be nothing but existing like a barnacle stuck to the hull of a boat.
BioPerine brings all of these ingredients together and makes them better to be absorbed by the body.
This is quite difficult to criticise because, by all intents and purposes it provides a good number of ingredients that are beneficial.
The only real issues are regarding low doses for some of the ingredients such as B12 and Chromium when compared to other fat burner supplements.
Then there’s a couple of ingredients such as Tyrosine and Theanine which I would prefer to be dropped and replaced with something such as Magnesium and Zinc.
Then, there’s a number of ingredients that are missing, yet are proven to be beneficial and would like to have seen included, too.
- Green Coffee extract
- Vitamin C
MyProtein Thermopure Fat Burner Review Conclusion:
This is a good supplement and one that will help the user get closer to that calorie deficit or increase it more so.
This will lead to steady and sustainable fat loss, for a competitive price.
However, it is not without its (minor) issues.
This concerns doses of some of the ingredients and also some ingredients that are not included, or which I would rather include to better performance.
Anything else worth adding to this review..?
This is a cheap and good fat burner which contains some real powerhouse ingredients found in many proven fat burners.
There’s a few areas to improve, but overall, a good effort and worthy of the pricetag.
Yes, there are some other products such as those in our top 3 fat burners are more attractive propositions.
