Boiling Point Review - Does This Fat Burner Really Work?
I’m here to cut through the noise and get you the bottom line on Boiling Point. We looked carefully at the side effects, quality of the customer service, scientific studies, and side effects to create this comprehensive review. We then scrutinized consumer reviews. Finally, we narrowed down all of the information we had gathered to give you the facts you need.
What is Boiling Point?
First off, Boiling Point is a thermogenic that claims to promote dramatic weight-loss by breaking down existing fat, preventing the formation of new fat, controlling appetite, and stimulating metabolism. Ingredients include cocoa extract, green tea extract, caffeine anhydrous, N-acetyl, L-tyrosine, raspberry ketone extract, hordenine, citrus aurantium extract, and black pepper extract. Each serving is two capsules and you get 120 per bottle.
Boiling Point is made by StarChem Labs. As far as we can tell the company does not maintain an official website. Information about their products is available on third party sites which offer them for sale, but read on…
Stimulants – “Interactions and Side Effects”
Our first concern is the heavy use of stimulants, which leads to potential Boiling Point side effects. According to our Research Editor, “There are warnings about taking citrus aurantium in conjunction with caffeine as it can increase the chance of adverse reactions; especially for individuals with any heart issues.”
One reviewer stated, “I had the worst headaches while taking this and my pulse was all over the place.”
Another claimed, “I got almost no sleep the whole week I tried to use this. I was anxious and jittery and a total mess.”
Some users didn’t mind, or even enjoyed, the effect of the stimulants.
One happy customer said, “I really like the little energy boost I get with these. I can skip coffee which means fewer calories too.”
A pleased dieter said, “I did have a little extra energy but not in a bad way.”
Customer Service – “Nonexistent”
Without an official website it was difficult for many customers to find someone to talk to when they had questions.
One frustrated consumer said, “I had some side effects I wasn’t expecting and I really needed to talk to someone but I couldn’t find anyone.”
Another complained, “I wasn’t sure if I could take this with some other meds my doctor has me on and he wanted me to find out. I couldn’t so he said stop taking it.”
Although there were some who didn’t seem to mind the lack of customer service.
According to one, “I used it and didn’t have any questions so I never tried to reach anyone.”
While another said, “I contacted the company I bought them from when I had a problem but they couldn’t help me because they don’t make it.”
According to our research, a small thing like an overuse of stimulants or a lack of quality customer service can really cut down your chance of long-term success. If Boiling Point is too much for some dieters, that is a problem.
The Science – “Lack of Clinical Evidence?”
At DietSpotlight, we understand the need to be thorough in the testing process before releasing a new dietary supplement. We want to see evidence that a company’s claims are valid. We just couldn’t find any resources to back up those made for Boiling Point. They do have some quality ingredients but the exact amounts aren’t available because they are listed as a proprietary blend, so even though some do have research behind them, there’s no way to know if it is an effective amount.
The Bottom Line – Does Boiling Point Work?
Should I race out for a bottle of Boiling Point? Before you give it a try be sure to carefully review the warnings that can be found on the sites of third party retailers who sell the product. We have reservations about recommending this fat burner because of the potential side effects and unhappy customers.
If you are ready to lose weight we suggest looking for a supplement that uses ingredients backed by scientific research in safe amounts. It is also important to choose a company that has a responsive and easy to access customer service department who will quickly address any concerns you may have.
Among the best products we have researched this year is one called Leptigen. It has four active ingredients that have been demonstrated via clinical testing to help boost fat loss and kick-start metabolism. During our extensive research, we didn’t find any negative consumer reviews. What we did find were a lot of testimonials from happy customers who’d lost weight.
The makers of Leptigen are so confident in the quality of their product they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which is very reassuring.

Product FeaturesBoiling Point maintains that it is a weight loss tool, however almost everything about it points to its being more popular as a bodybuilding supplement. The packaging features a graphic which resembles a weight lifter, it is found most readily on Body building and Sports Supplement websites, and the manufacturer, StarChem, appears to deal primarily in weightlifting supplements. That being pointed out, it is interesting to note that there are a number of warnings online which state that "This product contains ingredients that may be banned by certain athletic organizations". Information regarding Boiling Point is difficult to come by, almost every site where it is available uses the exact same standard ad copy which leads one to conclude that even the retailers don't have any in depth information about what it does or how. There are no clinical trails sited in connection to Boiling Point. There are no customer reviews, although one particularly frightening article is posted online from a customer who took too many capsules and had an adverse stimulant reaction. It should be pointed out that there are several stimulants in Boiling Point, which by the makers own admission are in "mind blowing" amounts. This may be what leads to the numerous warnings cited concerning the use of this product with prescription or over-the-counter drugs, as well as specific cautions for those with a wide variety of medical conditions and allergies. Customers wishing to try Boiling Point can locate the product on a number of different Body Building and Sports Supplement websites, the best price and service we found was on evitamins.com.
