Infusion X2 Review
What You Should Know
When we stumble on a supplement like Infusion X2 with the word thermal in the product description, we know to start looking for the stimulants in the formula. Caffeine is the most common ingredient used in thermogenics. This stimulant increases energy by affecting the central nervous system. With moderate intake, caffeine can increase metabolism and keep the dieter going throughout the day, but the trouble is that supplement companies have a very personalized idea of suggested intake. Some companies use less than 50 mg of caffeine per dose and others top out at more than 400 mg of caffeine per dose. Where does Infusion X2 fall on that list?

The ingredient list for Infusion X2 is complicated, at best. There are three proprietary blends, though we did find an amount listed for caffeine. The proprietary blends claim to spark thermogenesis, energize the brain and shred; we assume fat. The thermogenic blend is comprised of mostly caffeine – nearly 200 mg. There is also a touch of green tea, though not enough to be clinically significant. We also noticed some white willow bark often used as a natural alternative to aspirin.
The Neuro Energy X2 Blend contains an interesting ingredient – Xanthinol Nicotinate. This ingredient is a vasodilator, which means it will open up blood vessels. The niacin in the compound may cause flushing. There is no harm in the flushing, but the manufacturer of Infusion X2 could be using niacin as a means of physically tricking the dieter into thinking the formula is working. If you tell the dieter a supplement is going to increase internal heat and then include niacin that cause flushing and a feeling of heat it appears to the dieter that the supplement is working as claimed.
The final blend is the Shredder X2 Blend containing hoodia as an appetite suppressant and yohimbine as a secondary source of caffeine. We did not find any ingredients in the formula that would shred fat.
- Ingredients are listed in detail online.
- Contains caffeine – though more than necessary.
- The company may use niacin to fool the dieter into thinking the supplement is working.
- Hoodia will not suppress appetite.
With 200 mg of caffeine (likely more with the yohimbine) in each dose, Infusion X2 should be reserved for bodybuilders and fitness professionals with a high tolerance for stimulants, particularly caffeine.
