What You Should Know
Rapidshred is a fat burner from Primal Shock. The label claims the supplement will increase metabolism, help the dieter burn more fat and give the dieter energy that lasts all day without the worry of a crash at the end of that energy. There are also appetite suppressants in the formula, according to Rapidshred.
Claims are great, but proof is what the dieter really needs. The ingredients in the formula are listed in a proprietary blend and the main ingredient is associated with negative side effects on the heart. This is not a supplement the average dieter should try without great caution.
List of Ingredients
- 1, 3 Dimethylamylamine
- Cassia Nomane
- Green Tea
- Uva Ursi
- Geranium Oil
- Phyllanthus Embemca
- 5 HTP
The first ingredient in the formula is 1, 3 dimethylamylamine. There have been reports of racing heart rate, hypertension and heart palpitations associated with this ingredient. We suggest dieters with health problems of any kind choose a different fat burner.
Next is 175 mg of caffeine, on top of the 1, 3 dimethylamylamine stimulation. That is quite a bit of caffeine as a standalone supplement, let alone mixed together with multiple stimulants. The ingredient list also shows synephrine and green tea – two additional stimulants.
Green tea is our favorite ingredient in the formula. It’s too bad we have no idea how much green tea is in the formula. Green tea is effective at doses in excess of 300 mg. Dandelion and uva ursi are diuretics. These ingredients are added to increase urination and push water out of the body. Some dieters use these ingredients to increase weight loss, but the results they see on the scale are only temporary.
Another interesting ingredient in Rapidshred is geranium oil. This oil used to be considered a source of dimethylamylamine, but new research suggests the oil does not actually contain that stimulant.
- Ingredients for Rapidshred are listed on the Primal Shock website.
- Dieters may notice increased energy.
- Some of the ingredients in the formula are considered unsafe for dieters with health problems.
- There are multiple stimulants in the formula.
Rapidshred is a stimulant fat burner that may or may not help the dieter increase metabolism and lose weight. The formula is packed with stimulants so energy will not be a problem, but some of the stimulants are thought to cause negative side effects. We are most concerned for dieters with health problems that could be exacerbated by the stimulants in Rapidshred.
