What You Should Know
Muscle Gauge Trim Down fat burner is a supplement created by Muscle Gauge Nutrition. The supplement claims to use unique ingredients in its formula to increase weight loss. When it comes to burning fat, there are very few “unique” ingredients out there today that we have not seen. Most fat burners contain a stimulant to increase heart rate and an appetite suppressant to reduce hunger. Muscle Gauge Trim Down fat burner will have to prove just how unique the formula really is.
List of Ingredients
ATW Fat Loss Proprietary Blend: Tyramine, Phenylethylamine, Theobromine, Caffeine Anhydrous and 1,3 Dimethylamylamine.
Tyramine is the first name ingredient and thus should be the most abundant. Tyramine is not considered a safe supplement. At levels of 500 mg supplementation, tyramine can increase blood pressure and cause tachycardia (increased heart rate). People taking MAOIs are hypersensitive to tyramine and may see side effects with much less than 500 mg.
Phenyethylamine is a psychoactive supplement. This means it affects the central nervous system and can alter mood and perception. In addition, Phenyethylamine is a stimulant, which would not normally be a problem aside from the fact that all the remaining ingredients are also stimulants.
Theobromine is a caffeine derivative. It will increase heart rate and blood pressure. Caffeine is a stimulant that will increase heart rate and blood pressure and 1,3 Dimethylamylamine is a stimulant that has similar side effects to caffeine. The original patent holder of 1,3 Dimethylamylamine was Eli Lily who intended to use the supplement as a decongestant, but the natural supplement has since been marketed as a stimulant.
On a basic level, all of the ingredients in Muscle Gauge Trim Down fat burner are stimulants. Muscle Gauge claims there are only 140 mg of caffeine per serving, but they do not have to reveal the stimulant effects of the non-caffeine ingredients. Two cups of coffee have about 140 mg of caffeine so imagine drinking two cups of coffee straight down and multiply that several times and you may have some understanding of the stimulant effects of this supplement.
Muscle Gauge Trim Down fat burner sells for $18.99 per 90 capsules. The supplement is less expensive than other comparable fat burners, but that could be because the ingredients create nothing more than an energy supplement.
- Ingredients are listed online.
- The supplement is cheap compared to other fat burning supplements.
- Muscle Gauge Trim Down fat burner is an energy supplement.
- Too much stimulation can lead to caffeine addiction, jitters and other side effects.
We support using stimulants in fat burners to increase metabolism, but Muscle Gauge Trim Down fat burner goes a little too far. Weight loss may be a side effect but there is a good chance side effects will greatly impact the dieter.
