What You Should Know
The name Absolute Fuel immediately caused images of caffeine pills and stimulants, but the picture on the supplement bottle is of a stellar set of abs, thus Abs-olute Fuel. However, the fat burner is packed with every day ingredients with no mention of slimming the dieter’s abs. Had the company chosen to claim the supplement focused on just one part of the body we would have shot that idea down anyway, but we are curious as to why the company chose a picture of a man’s abdominal section when the fat burner is for weight loss or fat loss.
List of Ingredients
- Cordyceps Sinesis
- Caffeine Anhydrous
- Irvingia Gabonensis
- Citrus Aurantium
- White Willow Bark
- Cinnamon Bark
- Hoodia Gordonii
- Alpha Lipoic Acid
- Vanadyl Sulfate
- Chromium Picolinate
The ingredient list for Absolute Fuel is not the best we’ve come across, but it certainly has a foothold in weight loss science. There are two ingredients proven to help keep blood glucose levels in check. We’re lucky to find one in most supplements so finding both chromium and vanadyl sulfate is a pleasure. The hoodia added to Absolute Fuel is worthless as clinical studies have dismissed this ingredient as ineffective. Cinnamon bark and piperine are safe ingredients with some clinical support. Cinnamon may naturally boost fat burn and piperine helps all the ingredients in Absolute Fuel absorb more quickly.
We wish there were more positive things to say about this fat burner. Synephrine is a dangerous stimulant with side effect comparable to ephedra. We don’t know just how much is added, but any is more than enough to cause increased heart rate and jitters. Caffeine, typically a safe and effective fat burner, is also added to the formula. This should be a positive thing, but the dieter is not told how much caffeine they are consuming with each dose. Too much caffeine can lead to terrible anxiety, shakes and headaches. Nausea and vomiting may also be a problem at extreme doses. Theobromine is another source of caffeine so that’s two sources of caffeine and no indication of total caffeine dose.
- The ingredient list for Absolute Fuel is published in the product description.
- We love the addition of two appetite suppressants.
- Dieters are expected to take a caffeinated supplement without knowing how much caffeine they are taking.
- Multiple stimulant sources are used in the Absolute Fuel formula.
Absolute Fuel is not a safe fat burner. There is little doubt this product would be effective for some dieters, but the risk of taking a supplement without full knowledge of caffeine dose is a bad idea. There are proven weight loss supplements with safe and effective ingredients available on the market. Choosing a supplement from a company that lists all ingredients, total caffeine dose and testimonials from real dieters like you is a better option.
