Atomic Strength Nutrition the maker of FireStarter is based in El Paso Texas. You can call the company where telephone coaches on hand to take calls and respond to texts.
Atomic Strength Nutrition FireStarter is a fat burning supplement designed to support weight loss and mental and physical energy, and make you euphoric along the way. However, it seems unlikely to work in the way as described and according to customers, unpleasant side effects are a problem.
FireStarter is sold in a bottle of 45 capsules with a serving being one capsule daily. The ingredients include Niacin/B6/B12, Chromium, Caffeine Anhydrous, Panthergy, TeaCrine, Yohimbe Bark Extract, Alpha-Lipoic-Acid (ALA), 3, 5 Diiodo-L-Thyronine, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin B12.
The bulk of the ingredients are grouped together in a proprietary blend so it is impossible to gauge the full effects but the ingredients have been known to cause rapid heart rate, increased blood pressure, dizziness, flushing, tremor, sweating, headaches, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, and insomnia.
The supplement contains Yohimbine which, as well as increasing heart rate and blood pressure, might increase the effects of prescription medication including MAOIs. This could be extremely dangerous for some users.
This supplement also contains a fairly unknown chemical compound called N-Methylpentyl-Iminoglutaric Acid under the brand name Panthergy. There is very little information available about this possible stimulant, so you do need to be aware of this and discontinue use if you experience adverse reactions.
Atomic Strength Nutrition FireStarter is expensive. One bottle of FireStarter contains 45 servings, enough for 45 days, although you can choose to take two daily.
The bottle costs $49.99, or $1.11 a day if you use as recommended.
Atomic Strength Nutrition FireStarter is available from the Atomic Strength website and appears to be only available in the USA
You can find it on Amazon USA and occasionally eBay, but prices seem to vary greatly. There are many fat burners on the market and Atomic Strength Nutrition FireStarter is not the cheapest by a long way.
We have real concerns about FireStarter. This supplement contains unknown quantities of ingredients, including Yohimbe which is dangerous and also Panthergy, which is a branded product showing up in stimulant fat burners like this but lacking any real information about effects or side effects. This could be a risk to health and it is important to remember that the supplements industry is unregulated and just because a product is openly on sale, does not mean it is safe.
That said in our opinion, FireStarter is unlikely to live up to the claims anyway. It is supposed to promote a laser type focus but instead many customers have mentioned jitteriness and headaches. And at $49.95, it is also unlikely that you will get a euphoric feeling from it unless emptying your wallet or purse makes you euphoric
Overall, we don’t believe that this supplement is effective or safe enough to approve. We do not recommend Atomic Strength Nutrition Firestarter to the Watchdog readers.
Atomic Strength Nutrition FireStarter is a thermogenic fat burner supplement, meaning that it contains ingredients that will help to increase the metabolism and raise body temperature helping you to burn off calories more efficiently. The FireStarter supplement also promises added bonuses of increased energy and mental focus without the jitters.
The bulk of the ingredients are combined in a proprietary blend called FireStarter Brew. This means that although you can see what’s in the supplement, there is no clue as to the amounts of each ingredient.
There are some good bad and bizarre ingredients in this formula. The good ingredients are Caffeine Anhydrous, TeaCrine, Alpha-Lipoic-Acid (ALA), and 3, 5 Diiodo-L-Thyronine.
The bad, Yohimbe Bark Extract a plant extract that increases circulation, but has some unpleasant side effects and can react very badly with certain prescription drugs.
Then there is Panthergy, a branded product which shows up in some other supplements and according to research, contains a compound called N-Methylpentyl-Iminoglutaric Acid.
Atomic Strength FireStarter will make you sweat, which is what thermogenic fat burners are supposed to do because they cause a rise in body temperature. The active ingredient here is probably Anhydrous Caffeine, an extremely intense dried coffee where one teaspoon can be equivalent to 28 cups of coffee. This does make it hard for us to understand how it won’t give you the jitters.
FireStarter is manufactured by Atomic Strength Nutrition, a US company who also offer lots of different supplements and products for weight loss and bodybuilding. FireStarter is priced at $49.99 a bottle which makes it expensive for a fat burning supplement, so it may pay you to shop around.
According to the advertising,
“FireStarter is a high intensity fat burner, unmatched by any other product on the market.”
The key features are as follows:
The side effects made us laugh.
“WARNING: Side effects may include Rapid Weight Loss, Prolonged Intense Energy and Euphoric Feeling.”
This is not a warning; it is a powerful part of the advertising!
Atomic Strength Nutrition FireStarter may help you to lose weight when used as part of a calorie controlled diet and work out plan.
It contains some vitamins and chromium which will make your body muscles heal a bit faster after working out. Niacin, B6/12 vitamins, and chromium are all variations on the same theme, but can help with protein storage, form haemoglobin that carries oxygen around the body, and keep the nervous system and skin healthy. Although, the level of B12 at 1667% daily value looks like overkill!
The main problem with FireStarter is the inclusion of Yohimbe bark which, while it does increase blood flow, also has some nasty side effect and interactions with other drugs.
Panthergy is difficult to define as some people think this is a Glutamic acid while others think it is a banned substance, and it is hard to predict exactly what it will do, if anything at all.
Serving size is equal to one capsule.
FIRESTARTER BREW (638mg)
Atomic Strength Nutrition FireStarter Levels of ingredients are quite hard to define as they are grouped rather than quoted individually by quantity, so it is difficult to predict the side effects. However, side effects may include:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor before use if you have any underlying medical conditions or are taking prescription medication.
There are quite a lot of Amazon reviews for Atomic Strength Nutrition FireStarter, and these should give you an idea of what others think about this product.
Very strong fat burner but man does it work. In a week I saw a difference. I definitely recommend but make sure you eat something solid before taking the pill. From time to time it would make me a bit jittery. I also noticed I was nauseous which was fine for me because I didn’t crave anything to eat
I started taking FireStarter last week, the first day I didn’t notice much of anything. The second day I felt so energized I could not stay still. I also noticed I was a little nauseous which was fine for me because I didn’t crave anything to eat. I work two jobs and the energy this pill gives me is amazing. The only thing that I don’t like is insomnia, but if you need energy to motivate you to move I recommend FireStarter.
I tried taking this for 2 days so 2 pills. I honestly felt like I was on some weird drug. I couldn’t control my appetite. I couldn’t focus to save my life. My hands were shaking and I was itchy and sweaty. I had to stop working and go lay down until it went away which wasn’t for hours. I did exactly what the instructions said so it’s not like I was stupid and took this on an empty stomach or anything like that. It may be different for other people, in fact it must be because I bought this product due to the amazing reviews it has. It just wasn’t a good fit for me I guess.

There seems to be a money back guarantee on offer but on closer inspection, this is not as good as it seems. The 90-day money-back guarantee covers only unopened bottles, so is not more than a standard returns policy. If you are awarded a refund, it will not include the return shipping prices.
You can buy Atomic Strength Nutrition FireStarter from the official product website where the company claim they will ship worldwide via UPS, however it is hard to find the details of the price for this. The company does not pay any customs charges, and you will be responsible for any extra charge imposed by the laws of the country that it is shipped to.
Atomic Strength Nutrition FireStarter is currently only for sale online. It can be purchased from the official website as well as Amazon USA, and occasionally it can be found on eBay.
