Sports One Whacked Out Review
What You Should Know
Sports One Whacked Out is a fat burner by claim, but all the ingredients we see on the list are stimulants or mood-altering ingredients. We want to warn dieters from the onset that this supplement claims to contain ephedra. Many supplements on the market today that claim to contain this banned ingredient don’t really contain any ephedra at all. However, the other ingredients in the formula are strong enough to cause some pretty serious negative side effects. Dieters with mental health issues should not take this supplement. Phenylethylamine is known to interact with prescription antidepressants and other mood-altering drugs.
List of Ingredients
- Ephedra Extract
- Anhydrous Caffeine
- White Willow Bark
- Panax Ginseng
- Citrus Aurantium
- Yohimbine HCL
- Green Tea
- Hoodia Extract
On the top of the ingredient list is ephedra. Ephedra was once included in most stimulant fat burners because it worked, but after reports of severe negative side effects and death, the supplement was pulled from the market and placed on a controlled substance list. While dieters can choose to purchase ephedra in the forms of ephedrine and pseudoephedrine over the counter, they must present a valid ID and all purchases are tracked.
Anhydrous caffeine is nothing more than powdered caffeine. This is the main ingredient in most fat burners that contain caffeine. Caffeine is clinically proven to boost metabolism and energy, but taking too much or taking caffeine with other stimulants can increase the risk of negative side effects.
Citrus aurantium, yohimbine, green tea and theobromine are all stimulants. Green tea is the proven one of the bunch. In the right amounts it will increase metabolism and help a dieter achieve weight loss goals. However, when green tea is packed with dangerous ingredients or stimulants of unknown quantity, it doesn’t matter what science says as the negative side effects will likely outweigh the benefits.
Phenylethylamine alters mood. This ingredient can be found in herbal antidepressants, bodybuilding supplements and, of course, weight loss supplements. In theory the ingredient is included for all the right reasons. If the dieter feels better about life with a happy persona they are more likely to stick with a diet and lose weight. However, the impact of phenylethylamine can be negative for dieters with mental health issues and the ingredient should not be taken with prescription drugs that alter mood.
- Sports One Whacked Out contains caffeine and green tea.
- Hoodia is the least effective appetite suppressant on the market.

Sports One Whacked Out is the right name for this supplement. If the supplement contains ephedra, it is illegal. If the supplement does not contain ephedra, the company has lied and cannot be trusted. Either way, Whacked Out is a fat burner dieters should avoid.
