What You Should Know
Rocket Fuel is an energy supplement that claims to increase focus and metabolism. As is the case with most energy supplements, there is quite a bit of caffeine, but it’s not the caffeine the dieter has to worry about. There are multiple other stimulants in the formula that may cause negative side effects when taken alone, let alone when taken in conjunction with caffeine and other stimulants.
We found information on Rocket Fuel through a third-party website not Fusion Supplements, the official website for Rocket Fuel and other supplements created by Fusion. The website and supplements are designed for bodybuilders, which could account for the use of multiple fat burners/stimulants in one formula.
List of Ingredients
- 1,3 Dimethylamylamine
- Cassia Nomame
- Green Tea
- Uva Ursi
- Phyllantus Embilica
- Citrus Aurantium
- N Acetyl L Tyrosine
Caffeine is a proven energy booster and stimulant and while 175 mg would normally be too much caffeine, this supplement is designed for bodybuilders, not dieters. The caffeine in this supplement is on par with other bodybuilding fat burners, but it is not the only stimulant in the formula.
The addition of 1,3 Dimethylamylamine is of great concern. There are multiple reports of heart palpitations associated with this stimulant. While chances are low that a bodybuilder would suffer this side effect, we are not willing to support a supplement associated with heart-related side effects of this level. Bodybuilders already have to worry about an enlarged heart; they don’t need to worry about heart palpitations as well.
Uva ursi is an interesting ingredient because it offers no fat burning or energy benefits. Uva ursi is a diuretic, so the bodybuilder will lose water weight associated with creatine use. This fat burner is likely taken during the cutting phase of bodybuilding, which is why uva ursi is included, but one diuretic is not typically enough for most bodybuilders.

Rocket Fuel seems to be discontinued from the official supplement line by Fusion Supplements, but that doesn’t mean the company is not selling it through other websites. The newest and fanciest supplements are usually sold on an official page while the old favorites are retired until they suddenly become popular again. There is nothing spectacular about Rocket Fuel, but there is a long list of potential side effects. These side effects could be enough to reduce popularity and leave Fusion with no other choice but to retire Rocket Fuel.
