Fat Blaster Review
Fat Blaster is a diet pill that is marketed as a fat burner. Its advertising claims that it helps improve metabolism, which burns fat more quickly, suppress hunger pangs and promote the conversion of dietary carbohydrates into energy instead of stored fat.
The majority of ingredients used in Fat Blaster diet pills are quite common in other weight loss products. The ingredients include: Garcinia cambogia (a source of hydroxycitic acid), green tea extract, citrus aurantium (a source of synephrine), and guarana seed extract (a source of caffeine).
Citrus aurantium is a common stimulant used in fat burners because it contains the stimulant synephrine, which is a substance that acts similar to ephedrine (products containing ephedrine and ephedra are banned in the US). This is not to say, however, that citrus aurantium does not come with its own set of risks. The highly reputable Mayo Clinic states that there is not enough testing to support any weight loss assisting claims related to this ingredient and says that it may not be safe. An increasing number of case reports are linking citrus aurantium (bitter orange) to ischemic colitis, strokes, and angina.
The hydroxycitric acid present in Garcinia cambogia has several theories around its ability to help weight loss, primarily that it may stop carbohydrates from being converted into stored fats by inhibiting an enzyme responsible for that task. However, the Center for Science in the Public Interest has cited a project by a major pharmaceutical company that discovered in its preliminary tests with hydroxycitric acid that the ingredient led to toxicities and testicular atrophy in test animals. The project was halted and never restarted. Its safety is otherwise unknown, which is an area of concern particularly because the diet pill industry uses hydroxycitric acid quite often in proprietary blends.
Overall, Fat Blaster diet pills are no more unique than most other fat burners sold. Its primary ingredients are stimulants that may help to increase metabolism, suppress appetite and give a boost to your energy levels. Unfortunately, the actual amounts of these ingredients contained in the proprietary blend are not provided, making it impossible to evaluate their effectiveness further.
People who are sensitive to stimulants, such as caffeine, or have pre-existing heart or blood pressure conditions should avoid these diet pills as they may cause side-effects. As with all diet pills, if you have pre-existing health conditions or are on other medications, you should discuss taking these pills with your doctor.
