List of Ingredients
Caffeine – 100 mg per ball.
L-Taurine, Inositol, Chocolate.
We could list a hundreds studies proving caffeine is an effective weight loss and energy ingredient. There are a few problems with the ingredient, however, that may leave the dieter less than happy after a short time on Caffeine Balls.
The first problem is that caffeine is a stimulant. Even the smallest dose, for some dieters, will cause side effects like increased heart rate and hypertension, or increased blood pressure. At high doses, the same caffeine-sensitive dieters could suffer from angina and feel as though they are having a heart attack. Caffeine overdose can lead to a need for medical intervention and possibly hospitalization.
The second problem with caffeine, the main ingredient in Caffeine Balls, is the fact that the body gets used to caffeine in a short period of time. That same 200 mg per dose that kept you awake and alert for four hours may no longer work after a week or so. Then you need to take more and more caffeine to achieve the same effect. When this happens, the body becomes addicted to caffeine. If that caffeine is taken away, the dieter can go through withdrawals causing headaches, body aches and extreme fatigue.
Hot Stuff Caffeine Balls sells for $14.95 per 90 Caffeine Balls. On the label, the total caffeine content is listed as 100 mg, but other literature on the website states 50 mg per chewable. We believe the 100 mg to be true.

There is too much caffeine per dose of Caffeine Balls for the average dieter. The body may get used to the higher levels of caffeine leaving the dieter going through withdrawals after only a short time on the supplement.
