Two of the most important things we look for when reviewing a new supplement are clinical studies and warnings. Clinical studies offer the dieter proof ingredients have been tested and are considered safe. Warnings provide an insight into the potential side effects of taking the supplement. In the case of Chili Burn, there are no clinical studies listed, but we know green tea leaves and chili pepper are both clinically proven to impact weight loss. In terms of warnings, we were surprised to find quite a list. Patients with gastrointestinal problems, gallstones or anemia should not take Chili Burn. There have also been reports of hypersensitivity to ingredients in the formula, in which case dieters are advised to stop taking the supplement immediately.
The main ingredients in Chili Burn, in terms of weight loss, are green tea and chili pepper. Green tea contains caffeine and EGCG. Caffeine increases metabolism through heart rate increase. EGCG increases metabolism without affecting heart rate. EGCG works with or without caffeine. Chili pepper is a thermogenic of the most basic kind. The hot pepper literally causes body temperatures to increase, the true definition of thermogenic.
Chili pepper is also to blame for many of the common side effects, which may include burning in the stomach, diarrhea and painful bowel movements. Gas and bloating have also been reported.

Green tea works as a standalone supplement to increase metabolism. While initial clinical studies on chili peppers are positive, there are no strong conclusions in terms of weight loss. The supplement is not sold in the United States and hypersensitivity is a reported problem. We suggest the dieter stick with spicy foods if they want to intake more chili pepper and stick with proven weight loss ingredients for weight loss.
