SC FIT Clean Cut Fat Burner Review
SC FIT Clean Cut Fat Burner Review First Look:
I am currently eating egg fried rice with a can of tuna drenched in chilli sauce in a feeble attempt to cut a bit more fat, or rather, I am trying to minimize the effects of last nights two bottles of wine and Bailey’s.
This is more important today because I have not cycled in to work. Nope, I got in my car and drove to the train station then got the train in to the city center like a lazy fat piece of shit.
I will be playing rugby tomorrow though, however, as is customary everyone gets drunk afterwards and seeing as my tipple is Guinness I can assure you my calorie intake will surpass that what I burn from running around for 80 minutes.
So apart from my erratic cycling schedule, I also hit the big compound lifts to ensure I minimize my fat levels.
I also incorporate a fat burner to my diet to try and help a little bit more.
I have found Instant Knockout to offer the best results and as a result use that daily.
Therefore, seeing this fat burner from SC FIT I just thought I would see how it compares to the best on the market and whether it can help me at all.
The packaging certainly looks clean and professional so that is a good start.
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.
Glucuronolactone – Often found in many popular energy drinks yet very little tried and tested research has actually been done on it.
Niacin (B3) – Higher amounts of niacin can improve cholesterol levels and lower cardiovascular risks. However, the jury is out on these real benefits.
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.
Synephrine – This increases fat oxidation rate whilst reducing carbohydrate oxidation rate during low to moderate exercise.
Caffeine – It stimulates the central nervous system (CNS), heart, muscles, and the centers that control blood pressure to give you an extra boost and hit that PB.
Caffeine Anhydrous is the purest form of caffeine so always look out for it.
This is found in 4 Gauge which is the best pre-workout.
It is also found in Instant Knockout which is the best fat burner available at present.
Phenylethylamine hcl – Used for treating depression and increasing athletic performance. No evidence to substantiate these claims.
Limited supplemental usage due to being rapidly broken down into inactive components.
Nettle Root – Good for reducing inflammation and an enlarged prostate but has no effect on testosterone.
1 capsule per day to be taken.
This is not great as we prefer at least 4 pills spread out across the course of the day to ensure our body has a constant supply of ingredients to process.
The daily dose of 773mg is a good daily amount.
In fact, this dose is terrible when compared to other products, especially when you consider the best fat burners tend to offer in excess of 3000mg.
Effects & Benefits:
There’s only three real proven, effective and safe ingredients included which will help with fat loss out of a total of 9 ingredients. That amounts to just a third.
These are Caffeine, Synephrine and Green Tea. Caffeine and Green Tea are found in the best fat burner, Instant Knockout which is reassuring to see.
There is Yohimbe which is an effective fat burning ingredient but it can cause a host of health issues so it is best avoiding any supplements that include it.
Nettle root doesn’t have any fat burning potential as such, however, it can lower inflammation and too much inflammation can be the root cause of chronic disease such as obesity.
Vinpocetine can help with cognitive function, particularly as people age.
Realistically there are only 3 effective fat burning ingredients which as already mentioned only amounts to a third of the entire product.
That’s not enough when you consider the best fat burners are filled with 8+ proven ingredients able to raise the metabolism.
While some of the ingredients have their benefits they just do not seem relevant in this scenario.
Sure, improved cognitive function is great but I would buy a nootropic if that is what I am after and again, a decent nootropic such as Mind Lab Pro contains 11 effective and focused ingredients to improve cognitive function. This only offers 1.
Then there is Glucuronolactone, this has very minimal research behind it which is not filling me with confidence.
When we consider that Yohimbe can have some particularly effects on us, again I do not feel confident taking this supplement.
Then the overall daily dose is terribly low and the dosing strategy of just 1 capsule per day is not optimal.
Then it omits a large number of ingredients that should be included in a fat burner such as:
- Green Coffee
It certainly does not offer the fat burning performance we want nor is available in other fat burning supplements such as Instant Knockout.
SC FIT Clean Cut Fat Burner Review Conclusion:
This offers only 3 effective ingredients known to help stimulate fat burn.
Unfortunately it also misses out on vital key ingredients that are proven to be effective in raising the metabolic rate which will then burn more calories such as Cayenne or any B vitamins or even Zinc.
In addition, there’s then a number of ingredients that would be better off in other supplements, not one developed for fat burn.
Then we have a potentially dangerous ingredient which is not ideal.
Alongside all of this is a very low daily dose.
With all of these negatives it is increasingly difficult to understand why this would be bought by anyone looking to shed fat.
Therefore, some other products such as those in our top 3 fat burners are more far more attractive propositions.
