What You Should Know
Zoo Burn is a fat burner from Heal Zoo. The official website offers information on fitness and workout programs, nutrition and supplementation for weight loss. While Zoo Burn is not the only supplement sold by the company it is the only fat burner. The ingredient list is easy to locate, which is a good sign, but the company does not bother to back up fat loss claims with clinical research.
List of Ingredients
- Hoodia Cactus Powder
- Magnolia Bark
- Green Tea
- Cha de Bugre
- Maca Extract
The ingredient list for Zoo Burn is similar to thousands of other fat burners on the market. There is no specific ingredient that stands out more than another particularly because most of the ingredients are included in a proprietary blend. Proprietary blends simply list ingredients, but they don’t tell the dieter how much of each ingredient is in the formula. The only ingredient amount revealed is caffeine. There is 200 mg of caffeine in this formula; more than the average dieter needs to promote metabolism and boost energy.
Taking a look at the other ingredients in the formula we notice more stimulants and a few proven ingredients. The stimulants in the formula include theobromine and guarana. These will increase the stimulation felt by the dieter, but not dramatically because the ingredients are not as strong as caffeine.
Glucomannan is a good source of water-soluble fiber. Water-soluble fiber is commonly included in fat burners to act as an appetite suppressant. While glucomannan is not spectacular as a standalone supplement, when paired with chromium, the dieter may notice a significant reduction in appetite.
Two ingredients that disappoint us are green tea and hoodia. Green tea is a proven, safe ingredient, but we have no idea how much green tea is included in the formula. Unless the company is trying to hide the amount, they should list it on the label. Hoodia is an ineffective appetite suppressant with quite the negative clinical history. After testing, researchers found Hoodia as effective at suppressing appetite as a placebo.
- Ingredients for Zoo Burn are listed on the official website.
- There are some proven ingredients in the formula.
- The products are available for sale online.
- Most of the ingredients in the formula are listed in a proprietary blend.
- Some ingredients, like Hoodia, are proven NOT to work.
Zoo Burn may have a solid base, but the company needs to release the amounts for the ingredients in the proprietary blend and add some support for the clinically proven ingredients. There is too much caffeine in the formula for the average dieter to take without feeling some negative side effects.
