What You Should Know
Avant Research is a sister organization to Avant Labs. Avant Research began with topically applied products similar to Avant Labs’ Lipoderm-ULTRA and Lipoderm Y, but then branched out to provide additional products including the SIZE (a meal optimizer) and SuperCarb (an alternative carbohydrate source).
Like Avant Labs, Avant Research was founded by CEO Caleb Stone. They continue to work toward producing additional weight loss and athletic-enhancing supplements. Their products claim to enhance muscle building capabilities and athletic performance as well as fat burning abilities when used regularly.
Napalm, the company’s topical fat reducer, contains yohimbine hydrochloride, a compound which increases the risk of certain heart problems in many people.
List of Ingredients
TheSIZE: Magnesium citrate, calcium lactate, n-acetyl-cysteine, AMIGOGEN, Creatine ethyl-ester, creatine monohydrate, betaine hydrochloride, IP6, L-leucine, inositol, zinc gluconate, natural and artificial flavors, sucralose, acesulfame-K.
Napalm: Glycyrrhetinic acide, Raspberry Ketones, SesaThinTM, Yohimbine HCl, Synephrine HCl, Benzyl Alcohol, Water, Isopropyl Alcohol, Triglyceride Complex, n-methyl-2-Pyrrolidinone, Laurocapram, l-Menthol, and Carbomer
TheSIZE is a meal optimizer which is intended to increase muscle building performance by increasing the body’s ability to digest and utilize protein. It also claims to increase overall endurance and strength.
Napalm is a topically applied solution that purports to reduce fat deposits in specific areas such as the abdominals and thighs. One of the ingredients in Napalm is yohimbe, a potentially unsafe stimulant which can cause side effects such as dizziness, nausea, anxiety, increased heart rate, and elevated blood pressure. Although the product is applied topically rather than taken internally, studies indicate that yohimbe can still enter the bloodstream and create potential health risks.
SuperCarb is a carbohydrate replacement that claims to increase athletic performance and increase muscle building capabilities. The manufacturers recommend using it to boost performance during workouts and athletic competition, to build muscle mass, to enhance fat loss and dieting, and to replace sugar in cooking.

Although there is some evidence that Avant Research products can help build muscle and reduce fat to some extent, the products are not geared toward helping people who need to achieve significant weight loss results. They are similar to other athletic performance enhancers and carb replacement products. One of the products contains yohimbe, which can cause increased risk of heart problems in some people. Because of the potential health risks, this product cannot be recommended.
