Amp Red Stack Review
What You Should Know
Amp Red Stack is a fat burner sold by a Scandinavian company called Proteinbutiken. The fat burner contains all stimulants, so in the United States this product would be called an energy supplement and not a fat burner. There are not ingredients expressly associated with fat burning, like green tea or EGCG, which is where the difference is between Scandinavian fat burners and US fat burners. There is a good chance this supplement is not available for sale in the US – we could not find a listing, but the formula is clearly listed so you could replicate the formula with individual supplements.
List of Ingredients
- 1, 3 Dimethylamylamine
- Synthetic Synephrine
- Guarana Extract
- Theobroma Cacau
Amp Red Stack starts off strong with 1, 3 dimethylamylamine. This is a stimulant we often warn dieters about. This stimulant has been associated with heart palpitations and should not be used at any time by dieters with on-going health issues. If the dieter has a past history of heart disease or liver disease, 1, 3 dimethylamylamine is not safe.
Synephrine is similar to ephedra. The side effects are nearly identical but the benefits are not proven. The FDA has kept synephrine in their sights in the US for quite a long time and some experts expect the ingredient to be pulled from the market soon.
Guarana is a source of caffeine, though the label does not mention if the ingredient is standardized for caffeine content. Theobroma is also commonly used as a source for caffeine but again no mention of standardization or caffeine content in the supplement.
There is a warning associated with Amp Red Stack in regards to competition. The ingredient 1, 3 dimethylamylamine may cause a positive drug test in some competitions. This includes bodybuilding competitions. For this reason, Amp Red Stack should not be used by athlete or bodybuilders.
- Contains multiple stimulants.
- The formula and amount for each ingredient is listed online.
- Guarana and theobromine are commonly used as sources of caffeine in the United States.
- The ingredients may cause the dieter to fail a competition drug test.
- All of the ingredients in the formula are stimulants.
- There is no mention of caffeine content despite the fact that several of the ingredients are commonly used as caffeine sources.
- Could interfere with prescription medications.
Amp Red Stack is a dangerous combination of stimulants and fat burning ingredients. The formula is packed with energy ingredients that would be marketed in a different category in the US. All of the ingredients will increase energy, but the proven fat burners like caffeine and green tea don’t appear on the list.
