Innovative Hellfire Review - 6 Things You Need to Know


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.

What Users Are Saying

“”Can’t speak highly enough of this product!””

“”Great for energy, lost some weight so far. Don’t expect it to be a “miracle” pill.””

“”I was hoping for a decent energy boost from this but got nothing, even when taking 2 at a time.””

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 Burn HD. 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 Burn HD are showing just how confident they are that you’ll lose weight by offering a 2-Week Sample.

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
  • Tannins
  • Vasicinone
  • Vasicinol
  • Phytosterols
  • Mucins
  • Caffeine Anhydrous
  • Rauwolscine
  • 1, 3 Dimethylamylamine HCL
  • Evodiamine
  • O-Methoxy PEA
  • Green Tea
  • Rutaecarpine
  • Coleus Forskohlii
  • Peppermint

Product Features

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.

20 Innovative Hellfire Reviews

  • Elaine

    Did you exercise and diet? Cut out carbs? How many did you take a day and where did you purchase from

  • Kurt Becker

    I am in complete agreement with what Nora said. This is the first diet pill since ephedra that has worked really well for me. If you experience “jittery” as opposed to energy this might not be a good match for you. I lost 35 lbs in 3 months. Blood work after two months showed a significant in decrease in LDLs (bad cholesterol) and a modest increase in HDLs – my doctor was at a loss since I’ve never been able to move those numbers. I take one at 7 am and one at 2 pm – I only desire to eat a very little (less than 1000 calories per day) so I make it all protein and veggies.

    • Trisha

      Thank you for your input! 😊

  • Lee

    Hellfire gets me through my workouts! I just read that women should not use it. Does anyone know why ? That just worries me now. Does it elevate your prolactin levels?

    • Candace (Editor)

      Though it was originally made for bodybuilder the company says both average men and women can use it. Nor does it make a mention of increased prolactin. Ask your doctor before tarting this supplement. Could also consider Dietspotlight Burn, also helps boost energy and burn fat. Plus, tons and tons of positive feedback from users.

  • Alwin

    I used to lose 700 grams of weight a week. Now it’s 1 kg. Since I got on it I think I’m burning more. My metabolism rate is 2100 while on antipsychotic medication that typically slows it down. In average some one my size and age would have a metabolic rate of around 1850 calories (and this is without the effects of medication). Anyways, I’m losing 300 grams a week extra, and that would probably be like 150 extra calories per Hell Fire pill (I typically take 2 a day, with 6 or so hours in between), I don’t personally ‘feel’ it working (like a burst in energy or some sort) but the results speak for themselves.

  •  Johnny, Texas (Verified User)

    Hello friends, first please forgive me my english is not that great. I went through the whole bottle and lost 61lbs as of today Oct. 23rd 2017. Of that about 5-7lbs water weight. My height is 5’4 so at 218lbs I was a very fat guy. Today I’m 157 using this fat burner an hour before every workout sessions.

    Here’s what did:

    Start Weight: 218
    Current: 157

    1. I went hardcore no carbs for the first two months

    2. After 2 months I start putting carbs back in but in VERY little amount

    3. Then I started calories count. I try to eat 1500-2000 calories a day then workout to burn at least 500 calories. This include the calories you burn through the day. You can lose weight without working out by counting calories. There are many youtube videos that explain this process.

    4. I workout almost everyday.

    You MUST MUST workout when taking fat burner! They are not miracle pills. When you do it right you will see results, seeing results help motivate me to continue. I’m now lifting weights to tone up my lose skin. My wife said she can see my abs starting to take shape and cuts on my arms. This is a great product if you do it now. The common problem I see is that people think these are miracle pills. :/

  • Sarah K.

    I bought this product recently. The first day I took it, I did after my morning work out to see how it affected me at home. Some fat burners have made me naseaus the first few days and I’d rather have that happen at home rather than the gym. I didn’t get an upset stomach and had loads of energy. I didn’t sleep well that first night though. I took it the following morning before my morning work out, I didn’t lose stamina and still was energized through the day. I even did a night HIIT class at the gym. That night I had no problems sleeping. I only take it on days I do heavy work outs. I drink more water when I take it because I do sweat more with it. I lost 3 pounds that first week. I like the hellfire, it’s not for everyone though. If you aren’t very active and just use it for energy through the day you might want to try something milder.

  •  Only diet pill that worked!
    Nora (Verified User)

    Its the only diet pill I’ve ever taken that’s actually worked. It gives you a ton of energy and makes you completely not hungry for a long time especially if you take it in the morning like it says to do. Only thing is that the energy it gives you is insane, like you feel like you just did some serious drugs and all you want to do is move around a lot and get stuff done, which for me is a good thing but if being jittery or shakey like that freaks you out I wouldn’t take them. Also I would not take them if you have a heart problem because to me it makes me feel like my heart beats really fast. That being said if you need something for energy or appetite control, I would definitely recommend this. I’ve already given them to some of my friends and family and they really like the effect as well. Just be prepared to kind of freak out the first time you take them because if your like me you won’t be used to something actually working and giving you that much energy!

  •  Caused lots of side effects !
    Derick (Verified User)

    I bought this supplement yesterday and i used 1 scoop in a 2mil glass of water 30 minutes before work out as the instruction says.

    I felt very dizzy i even left the gym early and later i felt too much pain in my body i was losing my mind and my stomach was running, i vomited several times and today i dont have strength at all i cant even get up because ican fell i am gonna fall i now need an ambulance.

    Is there anything i should have known about this supplement,

    • Your Name

      How did you take a scoop if it comes in capsule form only? .

      • Trisha

        I also wondered about that… are you okay now?

    • Karly

      Eat a meal first and wait to work out… so for example:

      Take the pill at 7am after eating and then don’t work out for a few hours and you will still have lots of energy to do so just not right away jitters and sweat.

    • Maribel (Editor)

      Hi Derick, we’re so sorry you had this experience. Thankfully you’re okay, despite so many side-effects. Did you end up seeing your doctor? Definitely, do not continue to take this product. Another alternative, to consider, if your doctor approves, is Dietspotlight Burn. No serious side-effects have been mentioned. Hope you’re feeling better.

  • What are others views on Hell Fire in comparison?
    Anne (Verified User)

    I just got my bottle of Hell Fire. I took the old ephedrine, before it was banned. I’m so hoping this pill is close to being as effective as the old. What are others views on Hell Fire in comparison.

  •  Hated the product.
    jodi (Verified User)

    I went from a size 12 to a size 4 in less than 4 months. It helped me have the energy to work out, and move and gave me the motivation to exercise. Also it curbed my appetite. Do not take it with any kind of caffeine drink because it already gives you a ton of energy. But it really WORKS! Best diet pills on the market by far
