Below we take an in-depth look at Cannibal Claw, to examine whether this thyroid booster really delivers the weight loss results it promises.
Cannibal Claw is an unusual weight loss supplement that works by boosting thyroid gland and cAMP activities in order to induce fat burning and to boost the body’s metabolism. Most of the ingredients found in this product are relatively untested, and are fairly poorly understood in terms of their long-term effects. Despite this, the manufacturers of Cannibal Claw hail their product as a major breakthrough, as it represents one of the only fat burners out there that works entirely without the use of stimulants and caffeine.
The Cannibal Claw Thyroid Fat Burner is produced by Chaos and Pain, an interesting supplement and t-shirt manufacturer from the USA. The main distinguishing feature of Chaos and Pain are their wild approach to naming and packaging products, leading to crazy designs that genuinely wouldn’t go amiss decorating a shelf somewhere. The group may not have as much flair and experience with designing quality products as they do with coming up with eye-catching branding, as they appear to be a relative newcomer to the scene that attracts relatively low levels of interest on the Internet as of writing.
The ingredients found in Cannibal Claw are notable for the relative lack of studies that have been conducted into their long-term safety. Ingredients like 3,5-Diiodo-L-Tyrosine and 3,5-Diiodo-L-Thyronine explicitly attempt to alter the way that the thyroid gland functions, and this could theoretically have major consequences over time.
Existing theory suggests that altering the functioning of the thyroid could result in organ damage and metabolic problems. Even Chaos and Pain recommend cycling off this product from time to time in order to avoid long-term damage, so follow their advice and treat this product with a degree of caution.
Cannibal Claw is one of the most expensive Chaos and Pain products out there when you consider the lack of dosing instructions (some customers may only have enough capsules per pack to last them a single week if the instructions are followed correctly).
The standard 60-capsule pack costs $39.99 on the official Chaos and Pain website, and $31.99 on Supplement Central. It’s also relatively expensive when purchased on the UK’s MZ Store (at around £35), but is considerably cheaper on Power Myself at just £23.99.
Although this product is an interesting and relatively novel approach to weight loss, it’s extremely hard to estimate how well it really works and the amount of risk it poses to the body. Most of the active ingredients in Cannibal Claw are just too under-researched as of 2018.
It’s not even very well known whether the weight loss experienced from stimulating the thyroid gland is even permanent or effective; the American Thyroid Association is of the opinion that any weight loss experienced due to an overactive thyroid will instantly be put back on when the thyroid begins functioning normally again. There is no conclusive proof either way, but many researchers who talk about the subject seem to believe that messing with the functioning of the thyroid gland could lead to concerning knock-on effects, that could threaten major organs or the body’s ability to manage its metabolism.
Overall, we would argue that this product represents a very risky approach to weight loss, and an expensive one at that (some customers may have to pay $40+ for just a week’s supply of capsules!) Cannibal Claw may avoid the jitters associated with more run-of-the-mill fat burners, but it carries too many of its own issues as well.
We do not recommend Cannibal Claw to our readers.
Cannibal Claw is a fat-burning weight loss product, that claims to work by increasing thyroid activity. It contains an unusual blend of ingredients that are not commonly found in other products, and advises customers to take a set number of capsules per day on the basis of their current bodyweight. This unique approach is said to result in fewer “jitters” than we normally associate with fat burners, a welcome characteristic in a market dominated by stimulants and dodgy side effects!
This thyroid-boosting fat burner is produced by Chaos and Pain, a supplement manufacturer known for its zany packaging designs and interesting approach to naming products. Chaos and Pain have some of the weirdest branding strategies we’ve ever seen, giving otherwise innocuous pre-workout supplements names like “Cannibal Ferox” or “Cannibal Riot”. Their brightly coloured and stylised bottles are decorated in much the same way as a heavy metal fan might spray paint their van, adorned with beautifully-drawn skulls, crying angels, and other eye-catching imagery. Unsurprisingly, the company also sells a line of t-shirts. Customers can contact Chaos and Pain using the contact form provided on the official website, or can email the company at [email protected], phone them on 1-855-798-6039 or reach them by post at 5149 Selkirk, Birmingham, AL 35242.
The directions for use are as follows:
Take 1 capsule every day for every 75lbs of body weight you weigh (up to 4 capsules), twice a day. Do not exceed 6 weeks of continuous use, without at least a 4-6 week break before continuing use, or inhibited thyroid function may result.
Cannibal Claw is said to help customers lose weight through its ability to activate the thyroid gland. By speeding up and increasing the activity of the thyroid, this product claims to have an indirect fat-burning effect that can induce weight loss and boost the metabolism. On 3rd party retailer websites, some sellers also claim that the use of N-Caffeoyl Dopamine effectively increases cAMP levels (an intercellular messenger that may help to burn fat), as well as having an anti-catabolic effect (which means that it can effectively minimise the rate at which muscle is broken down).
The ingredients used in Cannibal Claw have very little in the way of detailed scientific evidence to back up their use as a diet aid. What we do have suggests that the key ingredients should boost cAMP levels and the functioning of the thyroid gland, both of which are associated with fat-burning and the raising of the metabolism. On balance, it’s fair to consider that this mix of ingredients could work in theory, but the lack of knowledge about how they work means that we can’t be sure if this product is dosed correctly, or if customers are instructed correctly on how/when to take the capsules. We know it’s a cliché, but more research is badly, badly needed, for safety as well as practical reasons!
It also must be said that there are pretty much no reviews online to check, which means that customers can’t even fall back on reading about the experiences of others.
So, does it work? We feel most comfortable standing alongside the evidence provided by real studies, and conclude that we simply don’t know.
The ingredients found in Cannibal Claw are detailed below. The ingredient quantities listed below are correct for 1 capsule.
Cannibal Claw contains a set of relatively uncommon and poorly understood ingredients. As such, it is extremely difficult (if not impossible) to know how it will affect dieters in the long-term.
The evidence that backs up N-Caffeoyldopamine, 3,5-Diiodo-L-Tyrosine, and 3,5-Diiodo-L-Thyronine as fat burners is thin on the ground, and the researchers writing these studies all freely admit that they have no idea how supplementing them will affect dieters in the long-term. It is theorised that artificially messing around with the functioning of the thyroid gland will inevitably affect the functioning of several of the body’s organs (not just the fat cells), which could have unforeseen knock-on effects.
This product is not a traditional stimulant, so you will not “feel” it the way you do a traditional fat burner. Despite that, it is working- do not greatly increase the dose. Overuse could cause very serious adverse health conditions. Not for use by individuals under the age of 18. Do not use if you are pregnant or nursing. Consult a healthcare professional prior to use if you have, or have a family history of, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, or other psychiatric condition, glaucoma, or seizure disorder, or if you are using a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI), lithium, or any over-the-counter drugs. This product is not intended as a substitute for sleep. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
Chaos and Pain products tend to suffer from a relative lack of buzz online, and Cannibal Claw is no exception. We were unable to find virtually any comments discussing this product, and the two reviews mentioned below represent all that was available (we tend not to count reviews posted on official product websites and pages as experience shows us that these are often faked or altered by the manufacturer). As you can see below, both comments are broadly positive, although there is clearly not enough information out there to make conclusive judgements.
I have been using “claw” for about 2 and 1/2 weeks, I like the way it works in that I don’t necessarily get buzzed or have a crash as with other products like a thermo, and i have dropped some weight too like 4 lbs, however I also started a new diet so the next 2 weeks should confirm the effectiveness. But I like it so far.
Good product. Works very well in a short time
It’s tricky to say whether Chaos and Pain offer a true money back guarantee, as they fail to detail their policy anywhere on their website. The sentence quoted below is literally the company’s entire returns policy in full:
“Chaos and Pain offers a 100% money back guarantees as it stands behinds the quality of its products!!”
As regular readers will know, we only consider a money back guarantee as such if it offers customers a full refund within a reasonable time on all opened products (even if customers are expected to pay the cost and bear the risk of shipping the item back). If looking to return Cannibal Claw, it might be worth dropping an email to the company to receive the details of their returns policy in full.
Cannibal Claw can be purchased on the official Chaos and Pain webstore, Power Myself, MZ Store UK, and Supplement Central.
A standard 60-capsule pack of Cannibal Claw (which should last from 7 days to 1 month depending on your weight) costs $39.99 on the official Chaos and Pain website, and $31.99 on Supplement Central. As usual for Chaos and Pain products, this supplement is far cheaper when purchased in the UK for some reason – the same pack costs £23.99 when purchased from the Power Myself webstore.
