What You Should Know
Adipokill is a SciTec Nutrition supplement that claims to incinerate fat, reduce appetite and increase energy. We found this supplement listed on a UK website, but all of the ingredients are available in US-based supplements so the supplement may be available for purchase or shipment to the United States. All of the ingredients in Adipokill are listed in a proprietary blend, which means the dieter has no idea how much of each ingredient is included, just the overall total mg in each serving.
List of Ingredients
- Garcinia Cambogia
- Green Tea Extract
- Dicaffeine Malate
- Beta-Phenylethylamine HCL
- Raspberry Ketones
- Taraxcum Officinale
- Cinnamomum Burmanni
- White Willow Bark
- Chromium Picolinate
The entire SuperMatrix, as the ingredients are listed on the ingredient list, total 1,710mg. There are multiple stimulants in the formula, but the dieter is not given a precise amount for any of the stimulant, or other ingredients for that matter.
L-Tyrosine is often added to diet supplements to reduce blood pressure. Stimulants can cause an increase in heart rate and blood pressure.
Garcinia cambogia is a stimulant that may cause liver damage or distress. Some big name supplement companies have chosen to remove all traces of HCA, as garcinia cambogia is sometimes called, to ensure the safety of dieters taking the supplement.
Green tea extract is one of the best weight loss ingredients on the market, but only if the supplement contains enough of the ingredient. We have no idea if Adipokill contains the 300 to 350mg needed to boost metabolism.
Dicaffeine malate is a stimulant – caffeine. There are clinical studies proving caffeine will increase metabolism and sometimes make it easier for dieters to lose weight.
All the ingredients on the label with phenylethylamine in the name may alter mood. They work to change brain function and should not be taken if a dieter has any type of mental or psychiatric condition.
Of the remaining ingredients there are diuretics to reduce water weight and a few more stimulants that increase heart rate and potentially blood pressure. We do like the fact that chromium is thrown in there to reduce appetite and bioperine is added to increase absorption of the good ingredients in Adipokill.
- The ingredient list is published online.
- Green tea, chromium and caffeine have clinical testing to support weight loss benefits.
- Adipokill contains ingredients that could cause negative side effects.
- We don’t like the fact that HCA is in this supplement.
Adipokill will not kill fat, so to speak, but it will likely increase heart rate enough to cause the body to burn more calories and that is the real function of a fat burner. However, the use of HCA forces this supplement into the potentially hazardous category so we won’t suggest this supplement to dieters.
