Zion Heatseeker Review
What You Should Know
Zion Heatseeker is a fat burner in every sense of the word. The ingredient list is packed with stimulants, but the company does throw in a natural appetite suppressant for good measure. We are slightly concerned by the sheer volume of stimulants and the fact that some of the ingredients are known to cause negative side effects. In the case of Zion Heatseeker, the ingredient list tells the dieter everything they need to know about the supplement and all that information leads to one decision – leave Heatseeker on the shelf.
List of Ingredients
- Phenylethylamine HCL
- Hoodia 20:1
- White Willow Bark
- Green Tea Extract
- Magnesium Stearate
Caffeine is the primary ingredient. This is common in fat burners as caffeine is cheap and effective. It is one of those ingredients that can be added to just about anything to create a fat burner, including gummy bears and candy. However, caffeine is not effective as a metabolism booster unless paired with supportive ingredients. For instance, packing tons of caffeine into a supplement will increase heart rate and calorie burn, but it will also increase hunger. The formula needs to have a strong appetite suppressant to offset the hunger, especially in this case where caffeine is partnered with synephrine and theobromine – two additional stimulants.
Hoodia and chromium are the appetite suppressants. Hoodia is useless and clinical studies prove as much, but chromium is effective at helping control blood glucose levels. White willow bark is a natural pain killer, but it will not increase weight loss or spark fat burn. Green tea extract is proven to boost metabolism – we like this ingredient. Finally, phenylethylamine the mood booster is added. This ingredient can cause horrible side effects, especially if the dieter is taking a mood-altering antidepressant or anti-anxiety medication.
- Caffeine is proven to increase calorie burn and metabolism.
- Green tea extract contains EGCG and caffeine – both proven to boost metabolism.
- May boost weight loss.
- The Heatseeker formula contains multiple stimulants.
- Hoodia is not an effective appetite suppressant.
- All ingredients are in a proprietary blend.
- There is no mention of how much caffeine is included per dose.
- There are no clinical trials to support product claims.
Zion Heatseeker is not a safe fat burner. Some of the ingredients are known to cause hypertension, fast heart rate and nausea. Other ingredients may alter mood and should never be taken by dieters with mental health issues. We suggest choosing a fat burner with proven and safe ingredients like caffeine, green tea and chromium, but one that also leaves behind the dangerous side effects.
