Below we take an in-depth look at Intek Fat Burner Evolution to see whether or not it will target stubborn body fat, boost the metabolism and reduce bloating for a generally leaner look, as claimed by the manufacturer.
We are not very impressed by Intek Fat Burner Evolution. The supplement contains a few ingredients that could aid weight loss, such as caffeine, cayenne, citrus aurantium and fucoxanthin, but the ingredient quantities are not disclosed, and so it is not clear whether or not these ingredients are present in optimal doses. Consumers are instructed to take as many as 8 capsules per day, which can be an annoying inconvenience. However, it does also make it more likely that the ingredients are present in significant quantities.
There are numerous ingredients used in Intek Fat Burner Evolution that are known to cause a variety of side effects, some of which could be dangerous to the health of the consumer. There are also several ingredients that are incredibly under-researched, including Acacia Rigidula, and so the full list of potential side effects for these ingredients is unknown. For a full list, please see the Side Effects tab below.
A single bottle containing 120 caps costs $69.99 plus a $6.00 flat rate shipping charge. They only ship to addresses in the United States.
The list of ingredients used in this supplement is extensive, and many of them can cause side effects, which can be unpleasant or even dangerous. We dislike the presence of acacia rigidula, which is incredibly under-researched in humans. The presence of numerous diuretics is also unfortunate, making dehydration and other more severe side effects more likely, but not contributing in any way to permanent long term fat loss.
The product is not covered by a money back guarantee, and the manufacturer provides no details about their returns policy on their official website. In addition to this, the lack of a listed returns address, no clear length of the returns policy, means that customers have to hope that the customer service representatives will be helpful. In our case (a simple query), they were very helpful and quick to respond, but this lack of clear information is frustrating.
Overall, we do not recommend Intek Fat Burner Evolution to our readers.
Intek Fat Burner Evolution is an ‘all in one fat burner’ that increases the metabolism, suppresses the appetite and reduces water retention, as well as increasing energy levels, according to the manufacturer.
Intek Fat Burner Evolution is manufactured by Intek Nutrition. The company do not provide their address on their official website. They can be contacted using the phone number or contact box provided on the contact us page of their official website.
Take 4 capsules 2 times daily for maximum results.(Start with 2 and 2 and work your way up) Start with a skyrocketing metabolism boost serving first thing in the morning after waking to get things started and again 6-8 hours later to keep T3 production peaked throughout the course of your day. Drink at 8-16 oz of water with each serving and 1 gallon of water daily to prevent loss of electrolytes and minerals during exercise. Do not take the product within 6 hours of sleep.
The first listed ingredients in the proprietary formula are all diuretics and laxatives, including dandelion, juniper and caffeine. Diuretics and laxatives do not affect fat mass at all, but temporarily remove water weight and waste matter from the body, which can give the impression of immediate weight loss. Dehydrated muscles also look leaner and tighter, making it a common tactic for bodybuilders to dehydrate before competing. However, diuretics and laxatives are not suitable for long term use and can cause a range of side effects, as we detail below.
Caffeine will increase energy levels and potentially cause a slight increase to the body’s metabolic rate for a few hours after consumption. Theobromine is a stimulant that is similar to caffeine, but much milder. Citrus Aurantium has been associated with a wide variety of side effects, as described in the side effects section below, which could prevent some groups of people from taking this diet pill. Caffeine and synephrine are both proven weight loss aids, although, as mentioned above, some have better safety profiles than others.
The Mayo Clinic have noted that The Federal Trade Commission has warned some diet pill companies not to make claims about the Hoodia Gordonii and its supposed attribute of appetite suppression. This is because there is a lack of conclusive clinical evidence to support these claims. One clinical trial, published by Unilever, actually found no positive benefits, no signs of weight loss or decreased appetite, and noted that participants experienced a variety of side effects. The study used 1100 mg of Hoodia per day, mixed into yoghurt, with the placebo group eating a yoghurt that had no added ingredients.
Generally, there is a lack of conclusive evidence suggesting that Hoodia suppresses the appetite in humans, and an increasing body of evidence to suggest that Hoodia does not aid weight loss at all.
Acacia Rigidula has not been well-tested in humans, and its effects are still relatively unknown, although one short term study suggests it could increase the metabolism.
Intek Nutrition describe this product as an ‘All in one fat burner’ that has the following benefits:
With no customer reviews available, and no individual ingredient quantities used in this supplement being listed, it is difficult to establish just how well Intek Fat Burner Evolution would work in practice.
There are some ingredients that could theoretically aid weight loss if they are used in correct quantities; caffeine, theobromine and citrus aurantium may increase the body’s metabolic rate, cayenne may increase thermogenesis in the body, and ginger could suppress the appetite. Fucoxanthin could aid weight loss if used over a longer period of time (as it takes time for effects to be noticeable) but no one is very sure of how it aids weight loss.
However, other ingredients, such as Hoodia Gordonii and Acacia Rigidula, have far less clinical support, if any. These two ingredients, as well as citrus aurantium, also appear to cause side effects on a fairly regular basis.
The use of diuretic ingredients is unfortunate as they do not contribute to weight loss and they can cause unpleasant side effects, especially if the consumer becomes severely dehydrated.
Intek Fat Burner Evolution could aid some weight loss, but there are some of the ingredients that will not aid weight loss but could cause side effects, which would prevent the consumer from using this diet pill.
The ingredients used in Intek Fat Burner Evolution are listed below.
There are several proprietary blends used in Intek Fat Burner evolution, and so no individual ingredient quantities are provided. The quantities that are listed are per serving of four capsules. Consumers are instructed to take up to 8 capsules per day.
Proprietary Blend 2765 mg
Hydroshed Proprietary Blend
Thermoscorch Proprietary Blend
Thyroblast Proprietary Blend
ASB (Appetite Suppressant Blend) Proprietary blend

There are numerous ingredients used in Intek Fat Burner Evolution that are known to cause a variety of side effects, some of which could be dangerous to the health of the consumer. There are also several ingredients that are incredibly under-researched, including Acacia Rigidula, and so the full list of potential side effects for these ingredients is unknown.
Side effects associated with the use of Bitter Orange extracts include increased heart rate and increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, fainting, and even heart attack and stroke in healthy patients. The Mayo Clinic has recommended avoiding use of Bitter Orange extracts because in their opinion, the risk of using the product is not worth the pay-off of any potential weight loss. The effects of synephrine and other bitter orange extracts are enhanced when combined with caffeine.
Side effects of caffeine can include headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness and insomnia. Theobromine is another stimulant used in this diet pill. Whilst it is not as strong as caffeine, it could also cause similar side effects, as the two are closely related.
In one study into Hoodia (which found that it did not suppress the appetite at all), participants reported a high number of side effects, which included headaches, nausea, vomiting, ‘odd skin sensations’, increased blood pressure and increases in heart rate. There were also signs of liver damage in some of the participants.
Of the 49 women in the trial, 25 took Hoodia whilst the remaining 24 participants took a placebo; these Hoodia taking participants reported 208 incidences of side effects over the course of the 15 day trial, suggesting that side effects are incredibly common.
Juniper berry and dandelion are diuretic ingredients, and so could cause increased urination and dehydration. Dandelion also appears to act as a mild laxative. Using diuretics and laxatives can lead to both dehydration and a deficiency of electrolytes, which can both lead onto more serious side effects, especially if not dealt with properly.
Calcium, chlorine, magnesium, phosphate, potassium, and sodium are all obtained from fluids, supplements, and foods, but increasing fluid output can decrease their levels in the body- even sweating due to exercise can significantly lower electrolyte levels. Side effects of low levels of electrolytes include muscle cramps, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, trembling, muscle weakness, and stiff or aching joints. In the most severe cases, more serious symptoms can occur, such as low blood pressure, tachycardia (rapid heart rate), sunken eyes, confusion or loss of consciousness for even a brief moment, and poor skin elasticity. If any of these occur, a medical professional should be consulted immediately.
Acacia Rigidula can cause a variety of side effects including energy crashes, jitters, stomach-ache and light-headedness. However, it has never been studied over long term use, and as it contains over 40 different active compounds, it could cause a wide range of side effects that have not been documented in the preliminary research conducted.
Not suitable for anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding. Not suitable for anyone who is taking any medications, whether prescription or over the counter. Not suitable for anyone who is sensitive to caffeine or other stimulant ingredients. Not suitable for anyone who has liver damage. Discontinue use and consult your doctor if any adverse reactions occur. Not suitable for use by persons under the age of 18. Keep out of reach of children. Consult your doctor if you are unsure about the suitability of this diet pill for you before purchase.
