Intek Fat Burner Evolution

Rating
Diuretic and laxative ingredients are commonly found in diet pills, even though they do not contribute to permanent weight loss at all. Instead they reduce bloating, and can temporarily cause a leaner look from dehydrating cells in the body. Intek Fat Burner Evolution is one weight loss supplement that uses numerous diuretic ingredients alongside ingredients that have actual clinical support linking them to weight loss.

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.

Intek Fat Burner Evolution Pros

Intek Fat Burner Evolution Cons

What You Need To Know About Intek Fat Burner Evolution

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.

What Are The Side Effects Of Intek Fat Burner Evolution?

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.

How Much Does Intek Fat Burner Evolution Cost?

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.

Our Verdict On Intek Fat Burner Evolution

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 Review

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 Facts

  • Manufactured by Intek Nutrition
  • 120 capsules per bottle
  • 1 bottle is a 15 day supply

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.

How to Take Intek Fat Burner Evolution

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.

Intek Fat Burner Evolution Concerns:

  • No money back guarantee
  • High dose of up to 8 capsules per day- lots of capsules!
  • No customer reviews available

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.

What Does Intek Fat Burner Evolution Claim To Do?

Intek Nutrition describe this product as an ‘All in one fat burner’ that has the following benefits:

  • Target stubborn body fat
  • Extreme metabolism support
  • Increase base metabolic rate
  • Suppress appetite and hunger cravings
  • Shred water retention and bloating
  • Increase energy levels for longer workouts

Does Intek Fat Burner Evolution Work?

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.

What Are The Ingredients of Intek Fat Burner Evolution?

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.

  • Vitamin B12 50 mcg (833% RDA)
  • Zinc 2 mg (13% RDA)
  • Chromium 100 mcg (84% RDA): This is used primarily to lower fasting blood sugar levels and to lower insulin levels in people who have type 2 diabetes. In terms of its potential effect upon weight loss, it is possible that taking chromium picolinate by mouth for 2 to 3 months might produce a small weight loss of about 1.1 kg.

Proprietary Blend 2765 mg

Hydroshed Proprietary Blend

Thermoscorch Proprietary Blend

  • Caffeine Anhydrous: Numerous studies have shown that caffeine boosts energy levels and alertness, as well as mildly boosting the metabolism. The effects shown in studies are small, and some studies are inconclusive.
    Source: http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-living/weight-loss/caffeine
  • White willow bark: Willow bark contains salicin, which acts a painkiller, and is thought to be as effective as aspirin. There is some evidence that when taken in conjunction with kola nut and ephedra, it can cause weight loss. It does not seem to have been tested on its own for weight loss properties.
    Source: http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/willowbark
  • Citrus Aurantium (30%) (yielding 30 mg synephrine): Also known as bitter orange, this ingredient contains synephrine. A review of numerous studies concluded that use of synephrine resulted in an increase to the participants resting metabolic rate and energy expenditure, and moderate weight loss was seen in studies lasting over 6 weeks. However, there are some concerns about its safety being under-researched and the numerous side effects that have been associated with it.
    Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22991491
  • Acacia Rigidula: This plant, originating in Texas, Mexico and Africa, supposedly contains over 40 active compounds, some of which are thought to increase the metabolism, as well as lipolysis in the body. However, very little investigation has been made into this plant in relation to weight loss, and so our knowledge of the plant is based on speculation rather than clinical results.
    Source: http://www.sportsnutritionsociety.org/ArchivePDFS-194.pdf
  • Cayenne: Capsaicin, which is found in Cayenne pepper, is thought by some to play a role in weight loss. Some studies suggest it could suppress the appetite mildly, whilst others suggest that the heat causes a thermogenic reaction in the body, burning more calories for a period of time. However, there are also studies that show cayenne has little or no effect upon weight loss attempts.
    Source: https://umm.edu/health/medical/cayenne
  • Ginger Root: Some studies suggest that ginger root is an appetite suppressant. One study used dried ginger powder to make a tea that participants drank with breakfast. Researchers found that satiety levels were much higher when the tea was consumed with breakfast, rather than just the breakfast on its own.
    Source: http://www.progressivehealth.com/ginger-for-weight-loss.htm
  • Theobromine Anhydrous: Theobromine is a mild stimulant. Thought to be a much milder stimulant than caffeine, and is unlikely to have any significant impact upon weight loss.
    Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theobromine

Thyroblast Proprietary Blend

  • Guggul Lipid (10%) (yielding 30 mg gugulsterones): Guggul extract is taken from the sap of a tree native to India. Currently, evidence that Guggul is useful for weight loss is preliminary, with mixed results from the few trials already conducted upon it, with some suggesting that Guggul has no effect upon weight loss, whilst others suggest its effect is moderate.
    Source: http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/GUGGUL
  • 7-OXO Coleous (20%) (yielding 30 mg of forskolin): Coleus Forskohlii is a plant belonging to the mint family that is thought to boost the metabolism. However, the clinical trials performed using this ingredient have shown no weight loss, even when the participants’ lean muscle mass increased and fat mass decreased.
    Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2129145/
  • Kelp: a good source of iodine, which is required by the thyroid for effective function.
    Source: http://www.livestrong.com/kelp/

ASB (Appetite Suppressant Blend) Proprietary blend

  • Hoodia Gordonii (20:1): This plant extract was eaten traditionally in the South African bush to stave off hunger. There is almost no clinical evidence that actually proves that it works, and there are far more studies that show that the product is ineffective and unsafe, frequently causing a wide range of side effects.
    Source: http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/10/28/us-hoodia
  • Fucoxanthin (10%): A few studies have shown a connection between long term consumption of ‘A daily dosage of 2.4-8mg fucoxanthin’ and weight loss, although there are currently several theories about what mechanism causes this weight loss. Weight loss is not seen quickly with this ingredient.
    Source: http://examine.com/supplements/Fucoxanthin/

Absorbomax Proprietary Blend

  • Calcium Carbonate
  • Niacin
  • MSM (3% moisture): MSM stands for Methylsulfonylmethane, a chemical found in the body, as well as in plants and animals. Despite it being used for numerous ailments, including chronic pain, inflammation, and arthritis, there is little evidence to support its use for any purpose.
    Source: http://www.webmd.com/methylsulfonylmethane
  • Magnesium Stearate

Does Intek Fat Burner Evolution Have Any Side Effects?

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.

Caution:
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.
