What You Should Know
According to MyoPharma, the creator of MyoTherm, the supplement was created for the dieter who wanted a strong fat burner that worked without the dangerous side effects of ephedrine. We like the fact that the company is trying to fill a need, but the ingredient list for MyoTherm is packed with ingredients that cause just as many side effects as ephedrine. When combined, this supplement could be worse than ephedrine.
List of Ingredients
- 1, 3 Dimethylamylamine
- Norsynephrine HCL
- Caffeine Anhydrous
- Hordinine HCL
- Yohimbe HCL
- Synthetic Guggulsterones
- Dandelion Root
- Uva Ursi
- Acai Berry Extract
- Vitamin B6
- Yerba Mate
From the start we want to take a look at the positive ingredients in this supplement. MyoTherm includes EGCG (250 mg). EGCG is clinically proven to boost metabolism and have a positive effect on weight loss. We’d love to give MyoPharma a high five for adding this ingredient, but that’s where the positive qi stops.
If we take the EGCG out of the list, the first five ingredients in MyoTherm are stimulants. 1, 3 Dimethylamylamine is the most dangerous of the stimulants. It is associated with heart palpitations, which can feel a lot like a heart attack. The company tries to counteract the negative effect of taking so many stimulants with L-Tyrosine, but we believe this ingredient is just not strong enough to stop the cardiovascular side effects associated with extreme intake of stimulants.
After the stimulants are left behind, the dieter is left with diuretics and a laxative. This is the proverbial icing on the MyoTherm cake. Dieters should not take diuretics or laxatives to lose weight, let alone take them together at the same time.
- Ingredients for MyoTherm are listed online.
- The dieter will likely notice increased energy after taking the supplement.
- Contains EGCG.
- Contains multiple stimulants with one that may cause heart related side effects.
- The formula includes both a diuretic and laxative.
If you are in the market for a fat burner, MyoTherm is not the first supplement we’d suggest. MyoPharma took the stimulant ingredients a bit too far for the average dieter and the inclusion of a laxative and diuretics is a bit concerning. There is a good chance the dieter will notice weight loss as soon as one day after starting this supplement, but that weight loss is not associated with increased metabolism or fat burn. It is associated with the water loss caused by frequent trips to the bathroom.
