What You Should Know
Manufactured by Fusion Bodybuilding, Sub-Q is an oral supplement that is used, mostly, by bodybuilders to help burn fat and improve muscle physique. Sub-Q targets the layer of milky white fat that lies just underneath the skin. This layer of subcutaneous fat contains adipose cells that cover and hide muscle that bodybuilders want to show off. By taking Sub-Q, this layer of fat will be burned away to reveal chiseled muscular features.

Sub-Q is designed to burn fat while maintaining hard earned muscle. It is designed to increase the metabolic rate and accelerate recovery times of the person taking the caplets. The supplement also contains diuretic properties that help to eliminate excess water from the body. This is important for competitive bodybuilders who want to rid themselves of unnecessary water that obscures the look of their hard earned muscle features.
The ingredients are packed into caplets using the Bullet Caplet Technology™. This is a unique caplet that has micro-channels to permit the release of the ingredients simultaneously from the inside to the outside of the caplet. Through this release system, all the substances included in each caplet are meant to work together as designed.
Included with each box of Sub-Q is a handy fifty page reference manual. The manual, aimed at bodybuilders, outlines a training guide and nutrition tips to record and conduct the progress while consuming the supplements.
- Contains caffeine that may cause side effects such as excessive alertness. Due to caffeine levels, it is not recommended that this supplement be taken in the evenings or used in conjunction with other substances containing caffeine.
- Quite expensive.
Sub-Q by Fusion Bodybuilding offers a quick and easy way to shed unwanted fat. At around $100 for 120 Bullet Caplets™, it seems like an expensive way to lose fat, particularly with common ingredients of caffeine, pepper and sand (silicone dioxide).
