Powerlab Nutrition, the company behind C-4 Fat Burner, is a well-known name in the sports nutrition industry. The C-4 Fat Burner capsules seem to be geared towards serious athletes trying to eliminate nearly all body fat. Based on this claim, this supplement is likely not the right choice for anyone looking to shed a few pounds or jumpstart a weight loss program. Having virtually no body fat is not only an unrealistic goal but one that is not particularly safe. In fact, safety does not seem to be the highest priority with the C-4 Fat Burner. One of its ingredients is synephrine, a product which is very similar to ephedra and has been singled out for some of the same reasons as that now banned product. There are also warnings against using synephrine with caffeine, something that Powerlab overlooked with this product. If these two facts are not enough to discourage the potential user, it should be pointed out that components like yohimbe bark can cause nausea, headaches and dizziness and evodiamine is a diuretic. C-4 Fat Burner is available at a number of vitamin and bodybuilding supplement sites online. The list price is $59.99 for 120 capsules, but some sites sell for as low as $34.99, so it is best to look around if you are still determined to try this product.

Powerlab’s claim that C-4 can eliminate all body fat are unrealistic and not medically wise. Some of the ingredients found in C-4 raise a number of safety concerns. There are many products on the market that aim to help the consumer lose weight. The wise and informed consumer should make every effort to find one that will first do no harm. Look especially for products that contain a fat burner and an appetite suppressant with their metabolism booster. Avoid those that have things like diuretics which give the false impression of results. It is also smart to rely on research and customer reviews to verify the claims of the manufacturer. There are products out there that work, use care to find the one that works safely for you.
