We take a look to see if JH Bodyfire Hades is as good as the claims suggest.
Overall, this is a promising product, especially for those who fit the target market, i.e. people who are not sensitive to caffeine, and who are going to use JH BodyFire Hades alongside a regular exercise program. The product is WADA approved, and so is suitable for more professional athletes as well as dieters and regular exercisers in general.
Whilst customer reviews suggest there are no side effects, consumers who know they are sensitive to caffeine, or who have high blood pressure or other cardiac related health issues should avoid the product.
The official website, jhbodyfire.com, sells a bottle of Hades, containing 90 capsules, for £29.99 plus delivery, which can be paid through paypal.
No money-back guarantee as such just the usual 14 returns policy.
Whilst initially concerned by the amount of caffeine found in the product, the customer reviews are overwhelmingly positive.
We choose only the very best weight loss supplements to recommend to our readers, and this appears to be one that is very close but the lack of money-back guarantee means we have to reject this supplement.
James Haskell is a rugby player who has played on the English National Squad since 2007. He has launched his own range of diet and exercise supplements, under the brand name BodyFire. Hades was one of the first products launched, and based upon its success, the company has launched several other products.
Because the product is endorsed and reportedly used by James Haskell, Hades is WADA (World Anto-Doping Agency) approved, and so is suitable for use by athletes and competitive sports people as well as more causal gym-users. It was developed initially for Haskell’s own personal use, by Katherine Andreasen BA(hons) FdSc DipION DipRAW BANT, who is reportedly a renowned nutritionist.
If the product is to be used as a fat burner, the dieter should take a capsule half an hour before each meal, and avoiding use after 7pm.
For use as a pre-workout energy booster, consumers should take one capsule 30 minutes before their workout.
The maximum daily intake is 3 capsules, and so it can be used as both a fat burner and pre exercise supplement together, taking one capsule before exercise and the other two before two of the main meals per day.
The capsules should be taken several hours apart to minimise side effects.
BodyFire Hella is primarily targeted at men, and it can be used as a fat burner, when taken before each meal, or can be used as a pre-training supplement, boosting energy levels when taken shortly before a workout. Customers should cycle the product, taking a break for a week after every four weeks of use.
Comments left by reviewers and the BodyFire team suggest that women can use the product as well, although there is the Hella fat burner and pre-exercise product, the sister product of Hades that is tailored more towards women.
JH BodyFire Hades is a pre-workout product that can also be used as a fat burner. When used as a pre-workout supplement, the company claims it will boost energy levels.
The manufacturers claim that is complementary to any clean diet plan, helping to maintain a healthy weight by boosting the metabolism, as well as increasing energy levels, alertness and concentration.
Whilst B vitamins all can play a role in weight loss, and certainly are required for the proper running of numerous bodily processes, but they can all be consumed in adequate amounts from a balanced daily diet, especially as many of them are found in vegetables and meats. Consumers using this product should not use a multivitamin at the same time to avoid consuming excess amounts of these vitamins.
There seems to be a lot of caffeine in this product, which is the main source of potential side effects from using BodyFire Hades.
Based upon the ingredients list and the customer reviews we were able to find, it does seem that the product aids weight loss, increases fat burning in the body and does aid with workout performance.
The official websites describes the ingredients and provides ingredient quantities.
The main ingredient that is likely to cause side effects is caffeine, which is present in this diet pill because of several ingredients, including yerba mate, green tea and kola nut.
Side effects from caffeine include headaches, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness or shaking and insomnia or difficulty sleeping. Spacing out the consumption of each serving, drinking plenty of water, monitoring the consumption of other sources of caffeine and ensuring the product is not consumed in the evening will minimise these side effects.
Bioperine can increase the amount of time that caffeine stays in the body, as well as increasing the uptake of supplements and medications. People who are taking prescription medications may want to consult their doctor for advice, as it is possible to increase the chances of overdosing upon prescription medications whilst using Bioperine.
Not suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or people who have high blood pressure or other cardiac related health problems. Not suitable for those under the age of 18.
There are several testimonials from happy customers on the JH BodyFire website. Reviews here are obviously selected to show the product in the best light, and are very positive:
Absolutely no jitters like most of the other pre-workouts. I’m losing fat and building muscle. Really getting back into my training now- all thanks to Hades.
First week of Hades. Lost 5lbs and feeling really positive. Hades plus circuits/metafit plus good diet just equals great results. Love it.
There are also a number of customer reviews on Amazon, the majority of which are positive.
These are tried and tested for me, I cannot say anything bad about these fat burner’s they are great for a pre training burner and keep you going for the duration of your workout, I LOVE THEM!!! I only take as a pre trainer, so I only have 1 a day or when I train.
When I added in this product as part of my supplement routine during my most recent 6-week focussed diet and training programme the results were really noticeable. As the reviewer before me said, no jitters at all. Only good things to say.
There are a few negative reviews, but no one reports any side effects, merely that the product was not strong enough for them to see any effects.
I don’t see any effect from taking these before my workouts and after taking them for a few days in a row I actually felt exhausted.
Hades does have an effect but its very mild and certainly doesn’t get you up and eager for training like the others. On the plus side, because its mild it doesn’t have any lasting effect during the day.
