REVIEWED: Cellucor SuperHD Fire Fat Burner
Cellucor SuperHD Fire Fat Burner First Look:
Today has been a long ass day. Hungover from the weekend means that I can never taste anything properly and I have a craving for sugary foods.
As a result I went to town on the junk today and feel worse for it.
I also had to go and buy a car as I fucked mine up over the weekend which went to the junk yard.
This means no gym tonight and I hate not sticking to a schedule, I am also very tired having just booked a few days away with my buddy to do some hard earned drinking.
Yes, that means in less than 2 weeks I am jetting off for 3 nights or partying. It also means a bit of sunbathing and I am not in the best shape I could be in.
Cue looking for a fat burner that actually works. We’ve already unearthed some great ones you can read about here but the search never ends.
I have to admit that this looks high end. It’s like a luxury brand and that gets attention and assumptions of effectiveness. This isn’t always the case though.
Dichrostachys Glomerata – This appears to reduce cardiovascular disease risk factors in obese hypoglycemic and obese type 2 diabetic human subjects. It potentially has antioxidant and hypoglycemic properties.
Toothed Clubmoss (Devil’s Ash, Devil’s Claw, Ground Pine) – Traditionally used for memory improvement and cognition.
Capsicum (Cayenne) – 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.
Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera) – Studies have shown that treatment with Ashwagandha root extract resulted in a higher level of testosterone and a concomitant increase in serum levels of LH among infertile men having sub-optimal testosterone levels.
It works by lowering cortisol levels (stress), high cortisol causes inflammation and high levels of inflammation reduce testosterone levels and increase the risk of obesity and other chronic diseases.
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.
The advice is to take 2 tablets daily which equates to just 931mg.
This is significantly less the best fat burners offer and they tend to advise taking 4 tablets spread over the course of each day.
Effects & Benefits:
There’s only 5 ingredients present but all 5 have their uses.
Caffeine and Cayenne are great thermogenics found in the best fat burners. They raise body heat and stimulate a higher metabolic rate which in turn burns more calories. Caffeine is a great stimulant too which can give you the energy to exercise.
Ashwagandha works not by directly burning more calories but by reducing stress because high levels of stress can cause obesity.
Toothed Clubmoss is used for cognitive function which can help you feel better.
Dichrostachys Glomerata is a slightly odd inclusion as it appears to only benefit diabetics. Although a benefit all the same if you are diabetic.
This has a really low daily dose plus a lack of other fat burning ingredients and the 5 ingredients included are hidden within a proprietary blend.
While each ingredient does have its benefits only 2 are distinctly proven to increase metabolism and burn fat.
Sure, one is great for cognitive function, one for reducing stress which can have a beneficial knock on effect but then we have 1 ingredient that only benefits diabetics.
Yet, overwhelmingly it is the lack of additional ingredients that would really help and improve this fat burner.
Cellucor SuperHD Fire Fat Burner Review Conclusion:
The price and ‘look’ of this product does not live up to the expectations.
The package is writing checks that the actual product cannot cash.
For $69.99 there are fat better alternatives that contain a full plethora of proven, researched and effective ingredients that will help you (me) lose weight before that vacation.
This is too expensive, has a real lack of ingredients in its profile and the ingredient breakdown is hidden.
