Innovative Hellfire Review - Does This Fat Burner Work?
Don’t mistake marketing for effectiveness. We cut through the noise to get to the facts behind Innovative Hellfire. We looked at the ingredients, side effects, research and customer service. We also read hundreds of reviews from users. Then, we compiled what we found to give you the bottom line.
What is Innovative Hellfire?
To start with, Innovative Hellfire is a fat burner based on a stimulant. It provides energy and supposedly helps burn fat with ingredients like caffeine, green tea, tannins, vasicinol, peppermint and PEA HCL. It is also supposed to contain 150mg of ephedra, but it’s not likely the same plant that was banned by the FDA.
Innovative Hellfire is from Innovative Labs. The product mimics the effects of old-fashioned ephedra and has some of the same effects on dieters. The formula supposedly still contains some, but there are safe, legal extracts that don’t work the same. We like that this product is easy to find online, is affordable, and offers some ingredients that do provide energy, but read on…
Lack of Results – “Too Much Work for Nothing?”
One of the first things we look at when researching a product is how much weight people lose. “Many reviewers saw only minimal weight-loss that could be attributed to water weight,” said our Research Editor. “Very few people see significant changes.”
“I stuck with it through the whole bottle, but I only lost 2 pounds in 2 months,” said one user.
“This seems to work for some, but I didn’t see any results,” said another.
We were surprised to find a review where the side effects were flipped into a positive. It said, “Some nervousness and anxiousness, but at the same time excited and motivated.”
Side Effects – “A Real Issue?”
Because the formula intends to mimic ephedra, we were concerned about potential Innovative Hellfire side effects. Sure enough, the stimulants led some dieters to complain about heart palpitations, excessive sweating, jitters, and shakiness. “I’ve been sweating a lot and am getting dehydrated with this product,” said one customer.
“Innovative Hellfire caused jitters and insomnia in me,” said another.
Some dieters offered advice but still urged caution when it comes to the health concerns, “If you’re going to take this at all, start slow. The side effects are nothing to take lightly,” said one person.
There are a few who admit it is not for everyone, but it works for them. As one user said, “This is not for everybody. This product is true to what it claims.”
Others offered more advice, “This product is NOT for your average person. It gives you a serious ephedra buzz and feeling of energy.”
Our research shows that diet pills with particularly troublesome elements (bad taste, lack of results, negative reactions, etc.) are less likely to lead to sustained results and long-term weight-loss. If Innovative Hellfire really does have several unintended effects, it could be difficult for dieters to lose weight and keep it off with this product.
The Science – “Clinically Valid?”
Innovative Hellfire does have some benefits. The caffeine and green tea extract are known for providing increased energy and a boost to metabolism. Because it is a proprietary product, the exact amount of each ingredient is unknown, and we’re unable to find out if there is enough to be helpful. We value third-party research and unbiased studies, and without that, it’s difficult to know if it really does offer weight-loss results.
The Bottom Line – Does Innovative Hellfire Work?
Have we already rushed out for a bottle of Innovative Hellfire? We were excited to review this formula because the company has been around for a while, the product is affordable, and it does offer known stimulants. But, we’re concerned about the lack of scientific research showing this ingredient combination is better than others. We’re also concerned about the side effects seen in a number of reviews.
If you’d like a safe way to lose weight, we suggest you go with a product that has minimal ingredients without fillers and is supported by published scientific research.
Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Leptigen. With a proprietary blend of four, clinically tested ingredients, it minimizes the chance of harsh side effects. It’s been shown to be an effective weight-loss tool by helping dieters burn fat and boost their metabolism. Users seem to agree that it offers proven benefits based on testimonials.
Right now, the makers of Leptigen are showing just how confident they are that you’ll lose weight by offering a Special Trial Offer.

What You Should Know
Innovative Hellfire is an ephedra product that contains real ephedra -as far as the product label is considered. The company behind the supplement - Innovative Bio Labs, lists real ephedra in the Ephedran proprietary blend. It is used as an ingredient in the blend, but we have no idea how much of the 150 mg listed is ephedra. Real ephedra is not legal for sale as a diet supplement in the United States. All ephedra sales are regulated and tracked by the federal government of the US. If this product does contain the same ephedra the FDA banned, this supplement is illegal and the sale and purchase of the supplement is also illegal.
List of Ingredients
- Sida Cordifolia
- Caffeine Anhydrous
- 1, 3 Dimethylamylamine HCL
- PEA HCL
- O-Methoxy PEA
- Green Tea
- Coleus Forskohlii
Most dieters already know the dangers of ephedra. There have been cases of liver damage and death associated with ephedra use - which is one of the reasons the supplement was banned. Another reason is the popularity of ephedra as an ingredient in Street Meth.
There are other dangerous ingredients in the formula as well. PEA is a mood-altering ingredient that is dangerous for use by dieters with mental health issues. If a dieter is taking depression or anxiety medications they cannot take a supplement with PEA. Another dangerous ingredient is 1, 3 dimethylamylamine. Heart palpitations can be a side effect of taking this stimulant.
We like the fact that green tea and peppermint are included as ingredients in Innovative Hellfire, but no matter how much of these good ingredients is added the bad ingredients outweigh the good.
The website we found the supplement listed on is not the official website for either the supplement or the supplement company. The price is about $60 a bottle - more than we expected. We figured the supplement was short dated or out of date, but if not then some company is still formulating and producing illegal supplements.
- Will increase metabolism and promote weight loss.
- Ingredients are listed online.
- We found no testimonials for Innovative Hellfire.
- The supplement contains ephedra.
- May cause heart problems or liver problems in some dieters or with overuse.
- The supplement is illegal if it contains ephedra.
Innovative Hellfire is not a legal supplement if the ingredient list is not a hoax. This supplement contains ephedra and may cause negative side effects if taken by a dieter who is sensitive to caffeine and other stimulants. In addition to the ephedra there are other stimulant ingredients. We suggest trying another product.
